Mums the Word this Mother’s Day!
Don’t get caught out (again..) this year, we look at some rather different and elegant ideas for the mother in your life
With its date changing every year, Mother’s Day is easily confused or forgotten about without some heavy hinting, though there’s nothing worse than the gut-wrenching realisation that your beloved mother has spent the day with not so much as a card. By the time you’ve noticed the rather bright posters in your local supermarket, it may already be too late.
With this in mind, we’d like to provide a gentle and timely reminder that Mothering Sunday occurs on 26th March this year, and while you should show mum how much you care every day, there’s nothing more heart-warming than a whole day dedicated to giving back to the woman who has given you so much.
Gone are the days of slightly off centre ‘best mum mugs’ and handmade tokens entitling the holder to ‘1 free tidy up’, and it’s time for us to up our game with a luxurious gift that suits her to a ‘t’. We’ve put together a helpful selection of gifts which are sure to do just that:
For that mother who’s always entertaining, why not gift her table with a traditional Salt and Pepper Shaker Set – and you can’t go wrong with Foxdenton Estate Gin’s NEW Apricot offering for after the guests have left.
If your mother’s a fan of rural living, the gorgeous Photo Frames and Scented Candles by Wingfield Digby will be right up her street – they’re even handcrafted to make the perfect addition to a country pad.
Another way to pick a star gift is to make it one-of-a-kind. These cushions by Atlas & I can be personalised to include an antique map of anywhere in the world – the perfect way to capture a special family holiday or a meaningful address.
A failsafe that’s sure to delight on Sunday morning is jewellery – delicate pieces from County Equestrian Jewellers are a thoughtful gift for country lovers, and their collection includes everything from pearl earrings to bracelets handcrafted in silver, gold and rose gold.
Their presence in your Christmas stocking from ages 5 – 15 may have been somewhat unwelcome, but a pair of socks is a great gift idea if you’re a little stuck – especially these luxurious cashmere socks from Gunn Line, available in a variety of colours to suit any style.
You may think her wardrobe is full of handbags, but there’s always room for one (or two!) more. A unique clutch from Hicks & Brown is proudly hand made in England, and the ideal size to hold essentials. For those who need a little more storage space, the Hurlingham Tote by Fairfax & Favor is essential for the mum-on-the-go, combining practicality and elegance.
Another top tip is to spoil the parent is with something she’d never buy for herself – a fur collar by luxury outerwear authority South West Ten is such a luxury, and sure to win you countless brownie points.
So, whether you’re buying the perfect gift for a new mum, or spoiling your own mother with something you know she’ll love, mum should quite literally be the word when it comes to organising that all-important present.
