A mother is the woman you look up to. The one who guides you and listens to you as you share your thoughts and feelings with her. The one who supports and loves you through life’s ups and downs. The mother-figure who loves you unconditionally – and who is there for you no matter what.
Yet Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be reserved only for the woman who’s raised us, as it can also be a joyous day to celebrate the mother-figures who have inspired and shaped us as well.
These women can be your stepmother, godmother, a mentor, aunty, sister or best-friend – someone that simply continues to uplift you with some joie de vivre throughout your life’s journey.
This month at Blue Illusion, we invite you to celebrate your Maman in style with a précieux Blue Illusion gift, or with the whimsical collection of our featured French artist Nathalie Lété, who’s artistry elicits a love of nature, vintage objets, and an avant-garde aesthetic made with love.

A gift for your Sister
While a mother and a daughter have a special bond, sisters also share an incredibly special relationship. If you have a sister in your life, you both have shared life experiences that are unique to the both of you. You may even have a special bond that continues to change and grow through life - with continuous love and support of one another. To celebrate your relationship, show her how much you love and respect her as a mother with a fitting gift like our Nathalie Lété cotton silk kimono.
Fashioned in the exclusive Mint Rabbit print, this robe-style kimono is cut from a luxurious silk and cotton blend in a style that drapes délicatement around the body. Make bedtime a stylish affair with this exclusive piece for the cherished soeurs in your life.
A Gift for your Mother-figure
While mothers and daughters have special bonds, alternatively, you may have cultivated an irreplaceable connection with the figure maternelle in your life. The woman who you look up to. The one who has nurtured and guided you with every decision you have ever made – just like a real mother would - to help you grow and flourish into adulthood.
To celebrate this unique relationship, cherish la mère who cherishes you with our luxuriously warm & chic cable knitwear this Mother’s Day.

A Gift for your Grandmother
The grand matriarch of the family – known as grandma, nanna, or nan – makes sure you are always fed and watered, gives you respite by taking the grandkids at short notice, and gives you countless kisses before you leave her house. Celebrate your grand-mère this Mother’s Day with a super soft multi floral wool jumper. Exclusive to Blue Illusion, these gorgeous floral jumpers are crafted from 100% Australian Merino Wool featuring peonies over either a Green or Cream base. No doubt, your special Nan will love being gifted this snug and cosy jumpers this Mother’s Day.
A Gift for your Friend
A friend is always there for us when we need them most. They cheer for us when we celebrate the good times yet hold us up when life may seem otherwise. Which is why this Mother’s Day, gift ton meilleur ami with a chic and luxurious throw to add warmth to their tranquil space.
A Gift for your Godmother
Whether it be a relative or friend of the family, a Godmother stands as a woman who serves a special role in your child’s life - as an advisor and role model for your child - to act as a positive influence on their life’s journey. Someone you can trust; a godmother is there to additionally support a family when they need it most. Which is why this Mother’s Day, gift a Godmother with le colibri, a beautiful Hummingbird Brooch that is an elegant addition to any jacket, knit or cardigan. Featuring tones of Purple as well as sparkling glass stones, this Hummingbird brooch pairs especially well with our Merino Navy Wrap and represents the virtues of love and endless devotion.
