Trendy Mum Gift Edit

Bold constructions and statement style sets the Trendy Mum apart from the crowd. She is confident enough to know what’s hot and what’s not, and manipulates the current shoe trends to her advantage. Here are some winning ideas for her Mother’s Day present.

Square toe boots and mules

The square toe trend is taking over. Square toe boots, square toe mule, square toe everything. Take this into consideration when shopping for Mother’s Day shoes. Trendy mum will enjoy JASPER by Betts, a square toe boot, with a low 5.5cm block heel and elasticised gussets.

We know it’s not about boots for everyone. SPENCER, a trendy square toe mule by Zu, brings you a leather upper and low 2.5cm block heel. An instant trendy update for any trans-seasonal look. She will love it, and so will you.

Heeled ankle boots

Not all heeled ankle boots were created equal. Those wearing WEST by Zu will definitely be making a statement. Featuring a leather upper, 9cm block heel and square toe (extra tick), this boot will turn heads.

ZOE by Betts in black is another perfect Mother’s Day boot for a Trendy Mum. Featuring a zip up design, square toe (yes, you guessed it) and a 9cm stiletto heel, it goes well with 90% of what’s in the wardrobe.

Heels with chains around ankles

This is for those who want to get a necklace despite needing a pair of heels. You get two in one. Really. Have a look at CRIPT and let us know what you think. Unmissable style with 8cm heel and chain detail. Do we need to mention the square toe? Well, it has it. Heels with chains around ankles are the new trend and we are loving it.

White sneaker with a leopard touch

Because women’s white sneakers are such a big trend this Mother’s Day, the trendy mum needs one of whatever everyone else is having. Add a leopard print detail, and we have BLAZE. Statement white sneaker, featuring a 2.5cm platform, lace up design and leopard print trim. It’s the perfect trans-seasonal sneaker.

Conscious Mum Gift Edit

Business Mum Gift Edit

We’ve got her feet covered while she gets down to business! Whether this mum is working on her feet all day or sitting behind a desk, we have the perfect corporate shoe to suit her lifestyle. We’ve rounded up six pairs of corporate shoes that will take her from 9-5 (and to after work drinks too!)

Comfortable leather loafers

This mum deserves to start her working day with a pair of quality, comfortable and stylish shoes! Whether she’s based in the office or on-the-go, you can’t go wrong with a pair of patent leather loafers like DORI by Airflex. She’s crafted from premium quality leather and features a cushioned insole and slight wedge heel for all-day comfort. That patent finish and tassel embellishment add the perfect finishing touch to any ensemble. Did we mention that DORI is a favourite here at Betts HQ?

Block heel ankle boots and pointed pumps

The classic black ankle boot - Every mum needs one! You know? The wear-with-anything kind. CARLY by Airflex are the office boots that every mum needs in her wardrobe and with cooler weather just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to invest! This style will take her from AM to PM effortlessly with a buttery-soft leather upper and ultra-comfortable 6cm block heel.

After the elegance of corporate heels without compromising on comfort? Opt for a block heel! Meet comfortable corporate heels SABRINA by Airflex, she offers height without the hurt with a 5.5cm block heel. Crafted from buttery-soft leather, this minimalist silhouette is a dress it up-or-down staple that every working mum needs in her closet.

The fashion world is collectively obsessing over white, so why not inject this trend into your office attire? Take workwear to the next level with shoes that mean business. These PROWESS mules are set on a 7.5cm block heel and feature a sleek pointed toe and delicate strap across the vamp. Keep things office appropriate by pairing them with longer hemlines. (And if you’re after something a little paired back, check out our PROWESS office heels in black).

D’Orsay ballet flats

The ballet flat continues to stand the test of time as a wardrobe staple. But have you met the d’Orsay? An elegant twist on the classic ballet flat. Our corporate work shoes TIPSY will elevate her weekday wardrobe with her sleek design, featuring a pointed toe and cut-out silhouette. She’s the perfect addition to every business ensemble!

Mary Jane flat shoes

These oh-so chic Mary Jane inspired flats are set on a 1cm comfortable block heel, perfect for your 12 hour day. She’s the perfect finishing touch to any office ensemble with her pointed toe and patent finish.
Yes, you guessed it! This Mum always has something to show off in her INSTA feed that will command fashionistas’ attention. She tags her favourite brands (perhaps, like this: #INMYBETTS) because she enjoys being seen and welcomes acknowledgements (and compliments). This type of mum may turn into a fashion footwear influencer overnight.

This said, an active Instagram account or being a mum is optional. She is worthy of getting into the social pages of the paper, rocking her chunky black boots or glitter sneakers. Whatever the case, a gift for this type can be challenging. So, here are some Mother’s Day gift ideas for the Insta Mum (and everyone who can relate).

Chunky boots

A catch up with friends, a Mother’s Day breakfast (of course!) or a festival outfit won’t be complete without these winter chunky boots. GRIME and GRIT will give the edge to your look, featuring a 3cm platform and 5cm heel, cleated outsole and elasticised gussets. Pair those with pants, jeans or a dress. Perfect Mother’s Day boots.

White ankle boots

Why? Because when you have a pair of white ankle boots, it doesn’t really matter what you wear with it. GANG ticks all the boxes this winter. This sock boot with block heel features a zip fastening and will give you a 9.5cm lift with its block heel. Pair with a midi dress and leather jacket this weekend, or anything else you have in your wardrobe. Really. (And if you are too scared to wear white, check out other colours.)

Block heel mules and flat sandals

There’s a reason why we called this block heel mule BOSSY. Being one of our best sellers, it will give you a lift with its 8.5cm heel and will turn heads (and drive the likes up too). Block heel mules are definitely staying. If you’re in need of a statement flat sandal, Insta-ready AXEL will do the trick. The best part about it is its comfortable and flexible design, recycled upper, and (!) it’s vegan certified. You’re welcome.

Glittered sneakers

Because sparkling should not only be in your glass, but on your feet too. There are a few options when it comes to sneakers, with our favourite being BRADY. The bling is unmissable, and a star panel gives this glittered sneaker a special occasion touch. You might even want to wear this one to a wedding (although we wouldn’t recommend it).

Sustainable comfort sneakers

For the busy mum who’s always on her feet, shop staple comfort sneakers that can be worn all day long! Zeroe sneakers ALLY and ELSA feature a comfortable and flexible design, in addition to a comfort footbed and vegan certified materials. These casual women’s lace up sneakers are perfect for anything from shopping, brunch or the school run. Pair with a linen midi smock dress for relaxed trans-seasonal style.

Comfort sustainable slouch ankle boots

Staple Zeroe boot HEATH also offers a wide fit, to ensure all day comfort for those mums with a wider foot, as well as a comfortable and flexible design, and a low block heel for all day comfort. These slouch ankle boots are also made with a low chemical process, water based upper, and BLOOM™, an algae biomass which helps to clean the air and polluted water. A win for her feet and a win for the environment! Pair Zeroe HEATH with denim and a chunky knit for winter style.

Comfort leather boots

Wanting to invest in a super comfortable pair of leather boots that she’ll wear year after year? Airflex GINNY and SAHARA offer a soft leather upper, lining and sock and cushioned footbed for all day comfort. Airflex GINNY slouch leather ankle boots offer a low 4cm block heel and versatile ruched design, perfect for cold winter days paired with a coat to stay snug. SAHARA features a zip fastening, panel detail and hidden wedge for the mum who wants a little extra height without the hurt. This style pairs perfectly with denim and a linen shirt and is perfect for the mum who wants to look stylish while staying comfortable.

Fluffy slippers

Still not sure? You can’t go wrong with a pair of FLUFF slides by Betts, the perfect fluffy slippers to slip on with PJs to watch TV at the end of a busy day, available in dusty pink or black.

Classic Mum Gift Edit

Versatile, classic and timeless dressing is what she is after. When she buys a pair of block heel sandals or low heel booties, she needs them to last and match with her wardrobe. Quality before quantity. This is why she will enjoy one (or a couple) of these Mother’s Day gift ideas.

Classic white sneakers

If you only have space for one pair of footwear - reserve it for white sneakers, like women’s white sneaker GEORGIE by Airflex. This wardrobe must-have features flexible and comfortable design, cushioned insole and will complement any casual and smart-casual outfit. Super comfortable. Another option here is slip-on sneaker GAIL. Both styles are investment pieces with a leather upper, lining and sock.

Low heel boots and chelsea boot

These are probably some of the best women’s chelsea boots out there. Why? Because they are timeless. DREAM and EXCITE are your perfect ankle boots for any occasion with a lower block heel and slick design. And when it comes to colour, our favourite is EXCITE in taupe.

Block heel sandals or ballet flats

The perfect Mother’s Day shoes for Classic Mum will be Zeroe’s ankle strap sandal RAEGAN. We love it! It comes in six colours, and is built for everyday comfort and style. This is a great block heel sandal that will take you from desk to dinner, featuring comfortable footbed and a 5cm block heel. Plus, it’s vegan certified. Good for you, good for the planet.

If unsure about the heel, go for flat ballet shoes. This might just win you “the favourite child” spot (no, it’s not automatically yours if you’re the only child, so make an effort). A pair of GIGI in black will cover the basics, featuring a pointed toe and strap trim detail. Pair with tailored pants and a button up shirt.

E-Gift Card

Still not sure what to get mum? How about the gift of choice with a Betts E-GIFT CARD, that she can use across Betts, Zeroe, Airflex or Zu.
