The best Mother’s Day gifts for the mum in your life

It’s nearly that day of the year again, the one despite vowing otherwise each year, creeps up on you leaving you with just enough time up your sleeve to dash out in haste for a last-minute card. Mother’s Day 2022 is coming up on Sunday 8th of May, so while you still have the time to plan the perfect gesture, we’ve curated all the gift idea inspiration you need.


After two years unlike any other, it's no secret that mums have had it tough. Juggling work and mothering, taking on the role of teacher due to school closures, always putting other’s needs before her own, all while maintaining the household. It’s a selfless role, which has undoubtedly taken its toll. It’s fair to say mum is more than deserving of a well-deserved treat, so make this Mother's Day a special one.



There’s no more befitting occasion than Mother’s Day to go above and beyond to express gratitude than a day exclusively about them. So, what do you get the most caring and generous woman you know? There are plenty of presents that she’ll love. But, if you’re feeling overwhelmed and at a loss, you’ve come to the right place. There are the tried-and-true, like breakfast in bed and flowers, then there is a very personal and special gift to show her how loved she is, like a LOVE IN A JEWEL keepsake pendant or charm...holding a handwritten note from you inside forever!


Whether it’s for your own mum, mother-in-law, wife, grandmother, a mum-to-be or friend who recently welcomed a new baby, our Keepsake Collection is a fail-safe present to celebrate your bond. Whatever her style—from minimalist to maximal—a personalised keepsake pendant or charm promises to make her feel so loved (and there may even be some happy tears, too).


For the mum who has everything, the Keepsake Collection invites you to pen a handwritten note or enclose a sentimental keepsake, which our Master Jeweller will seal inside your chosen pendant or charm forever. Alongside this unique jewellery, she’ll also receive polaroid photos showcasing your note or keepsake before it was sealed inside. Proudly designed and made in New Zealand, our pendants and charms are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside due to the personal love held inside forever.


We understand many live far away from their mothers, especially during these times where travel is out of reach. Some of us are cities away while others separated by oceans, but in good news, even if you can't physically be in the same place as your mum, you can still make Mother's Day meaningful for her. LOVE IN A JEWEL can work with you, wherever you’re located, to personalise your pendant or charm.



How it works

  1. Browse our Keepsake Collection
  2. Once you’ve decided on a design, follow the steps to ordering.
  3. Send your note or special keepsake to us. Once we’ve received it, it will be placed into the pendant with care and integrity. Then, the lid is professionally sealed by our Master Jeweller, Joachim van Oostrum.
  4. We will capture polaroid photos showcasing the note or keepsake held within, which she’ll receive with the pendant.


Below we round-up our favourite designs for every kind of mum…


The Heart Keepsake Pendant

One of our signature styles, the classic heart shape is the quintessential showcase of your love, reinvented with a sparkling solitaire diamond (or cubic zirconia). It’s also available plain for an understated, decidedly modern look. The delicate design features a simple link chain exuding sophistication and elegance. Shop here.


The Genesis Pendant

In a nod to your day one bond, The Genesis Pendant, meaning “in the beginning”, is a natural choice. The contemporary solid design features an inner square of diamonds (or cubic zirconias) on a 45cm link chain. With a more generous compartment this pendant can hold a large keepsake or note, inviting even more expression and creativity. Shop here.


The Chic Keepsake Pendant

As the name suggests, this subtle and thoughtfully stylish pendant catches the light with seven brilliant cut diamonds (or cubic zirconias). A statement and safe choice all in one, as it pairs with practically anything, regardless of the occasion. Shop here.

All designs are available in yellow gold, rose gold, white gold or sterling silver, as well as platinum on request.


If mum would like to be involved in the design process, a gift voucher ticks all the boxes. Beautifully presented and ready to give, it will be delivered to her door enclosed in a branded envelope tied with organza ribbon. Simply tell us the amount you would like to spend, and we will prepare the gift voucher and put it on an overnight courier to arrive within New Zealand the next day. It’s a great last-minute gift without compromising on thought.
