With the world currently in turmoil, show your Mother how much she means to you. As a special day approaches; Mother’s Day, Sunday 22nd March. A day the world honours Mothers, Grandmothers and all maternal figures, celebrating their unconditional love. Ensure you are ready to wine and dine or relax and pamper; leaving your Mother smiling from ear to ear. And whilst no gift given with good intentions can be bad, many Mother’s Day gifts end up being cliché and well dare we say it, slightly boring. From classic bouquets to rich chocolates, your Mother deserves more than just a repeat of last year's gift.
Whether it’s some quality time with the apple of her eye or a luxurious gift fit for a Queen; Listique offers a gifting guide to put a smile on her face this Mother’s Day.

This internationally renowned Atelier creates luxurious, sculptural furniture, sourcing the finest, rare materials such as antique jewellery-grade coral, African Ebony and Afghanistan Jade. With the brand translating to ‘rare’ in Italian, the Raro namesake signifies the rarity of the pieces themselves and the materials of which they are made. Denoting a great sense of Italian design and craftsmanship, the collection draws on exoticism and drama of the East to a Western palette; resulting in high-end, contemporary design.
