It’s Mother’s Day on 9th May. How about giving her something different from the usual flowers and chocolate? Check out our great gift ideas from local companies – from chic travel accessories to unusual vases.


Shea Cream by Five

Just five ingredients – but a true all-rounder. The Shea Cream (37 francs) from Zurich cosmetics label Five delivers long-lasting care for your face and body without causing irritation. Or as one happy customer writes, ‘My skin says thank you!’

Bags from En Soie

Zurich teens love the simple cotton bags from the traditional En Soie label. Now the classic bag (89 francs) comes in an even more heavy-duty cotton, meaning that it is also the trusty companion of older people – reminding them of their loved ones with its ‘Love rules forever’ print.

The bag is available from En Soie at Strehlgasse 26.



Silver bracelet from STEINLINS

The handmade Sweetheart silver bracelet from STEINLINS’ Mami & Me collection symbolises the bond between two people. Keep it for yourself or give it to someone you love to say thank you. Bracelets with other symbols are available in the online shop or from the atelier at Kuttelgasse 15.

Mini Bag Medium from Lost & Found accessories

At work, around town or at the playground, the Mini Bag is the perfect companion for busy mums. The compact interior is perfectly designed so that their phone, credit cards, money and keys are always to hand. Or remove the shoulder strap and hey presto – the bag turns into a wallet.

Bottle garden from Green Bubble

Whether she has green fingers or brown thumbs, every mum is bound to love these bottle gardens from Green Bubble (from 59 Fr.). These little gardens basically look after themselves – they only need watering about twice a year. But anyone who likes a challenge can also plant their own mini-garden.
