As we begin to come together again after a tricky few years, Mother’s Day 2022 marks a poignant moment in celebrating the women or mother figures that raised us. That’s why we have gathered a few thoughtful ideas for Mother’s Day gifts to keep you inspired.
That said, with bustling schedules to uphold, there is no shame in asking when’s Mothers Day? It’s the 27th March, so you still have plenty of time to find something special.
Firstly, we can all agree that over the years, cards and chocolates can fall a little tired. Cue the age-old question – what to get Mum for Mother’s Day that’s both personal and beautiful in equal measure?
We believe the best Mother’s Day gifts are those that are lived with – symbols of your commemoration within the home that bring a sense of joy and appreciation every time they are passed. With this in mind, say thank you to Mum with our selection of gift ideas for their homes and gardens.
CELEBRATE HER RITUALS
Our new home fragrance twin-wick candles and reed diffusers are a treat for the mind and soul. So, take time to consider which scents will best nourish her rituals. Which moments of the day does she consider most sacred?
Mother’s Day flowers never fail to bring happiness and joy. Bursting with colour and life, let blossoms enliven her spirits for longer with our wonderfully versatile faux flowers. No wilting, no watering, just glorious blooms.
Gift artificial flowers for Mother’s Day as single stems or for a chic, customised finish mix faux with greenery. Robust foliage such as Eucalyptus, Waxflower or Leatherleaf can create a long-lasting bouquet to be admired for months rather than weeks. They are extremely enduring, cost-effective and have deep earthy tones that sit harmoniously with dramatic, larger blooms.
Because our silk flowers have a wire structure, you can bend them into the shape you want for your arrangement. Simply cut an inch off all the stems, twist, then secure with string and voila – a personalised Mother’s Day bouquet.
From holiday snaps to postcards of the past, photo keepsakes are an easy, heartfelt way to capture those priceless memories. By filling photo frames with token moments, Mum can enrich the home with treasured family emblems or even curate a whole wall dedicated to those she holds most dear.
Above all, framed photos make great Mother’s Day gifts for Grandma too!
TOKENS OF GRATITUDE
Not just a vessel on the shelf, but a welcome reminder of your gratitude – having a vase with meaning can transform the most humble of flowers.
From elegant recycled glass to crackle glaze ceramics, our range of vases and planters make elegant additions to any home.
What’s more – for a little Mother’s Day inspiration – cut a few wildflowers on your way to see her next Sunday and pop them inside.
Likewise, a simple way to rejuvenate Mum’s home is to pair low-maintenance houseplants – such as succulents or Monstera – inside a worthy Mother’s Day plant pot.
INSPIRE AND NURTURE
Artwork goes a long way in making a house a home and even more so when it’s given as a gift.
Printed and framed by hand here in the UK, our exclusive wall art collection is created by talented local artists and inspired by the natural world. Each piece of artwork makes distinctive, unusual Mother’s Day gifts that can be cherished for years to come.
As spring begins to unfurl, green-fingered gardeners will be hankering to get their hands dirty outside. Our gardening gifts are as lovely as they are practical – from gardener’s gift sets to garden tool baskets and insect houses, there’s plenty of ideas to get them outdoors, relishing the brighter weather.
TEA FOR TWO
Share a cup of tea or two with Mum using our gorgeous Willow and Blackthorn mug set. Ideal for those who always have a pot of tea on the go, or simply appreciate heritage design. Presented in a beautiful gift box, the Pure Morris Willow and Strawberry Thief range provides a softer grey colourway.
ENVELOPE WITH LOVE
We all love a cosy evening spent cocooned in layers with our feet up, so why not pamper Mum with an array of well-deserved cushions and throws. Whether she likes hunkering down with books or nesting in with classic films, we have soft furnishings for every occasion.
Choose from sumptuous velvet cushions and knitted throws to striking embroidery work, such as our Fern Fronds cushion. For extra comfort, our quilts and cushions or throws with cashmere offer luxurious warmth and padded thickness – perfect for curling up with a hot chocolate or cuppa.
