Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Mother’s Day is the perfect time to honour one of the most important women in our lives and it’s coming up in a few weeks! Read on if you’re in need of some gift inspiration.
Treating your mum to a luxurious skincare set; a lovely pair of satin pyjamas; a bottle of Charles Heidsieck champagne; or any combination of these gifts will give her the chance to relax and make her feel appreciated for all she’s done for you.
If your mum is anything like mine, she will greatly appreciate a sentimental gift, such as a thoughtfully written card, or a bouquet of her favourite flowers. It really is true that it’s the thought that counts – your gift doesn’t have to cost the earth. A simple gift like a photo of the two of you in an elegant picture frame, or even a lovely home-cooked meal can be way more valuable than an expensive gift. Try creating a pretty, spring-inspired tablescape in your garden (if the weather is warm enough!) and inviting your mum over for a Mother’s Day lunch.
If your mum is into gardening like LL is, then a gardening gift can be both thoughtful and practical. This RHS Botany for Gardeners book is beautifully presented and is packed full of information about the history of botany and practical advice for gardeners. This bee home makes for a sweet little gift that is also great for our planet. A gift that pairs exceptionally well with the bee home is this pack of wildflower seeds; you can give the gift of a stunning wildflower meadow to your mum, which will also attract the pollinators and improve the biodiversity of your mum’s garden!
Finally, here are some lovely homeware gifts that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. If your mum is into baking, you could treat her to this gorgeous little set of measuring spoons or this elegant cake stand, both from Anthropologie. Or you could really push the boat out and surprise her with a Hotel Chocolat Velvetier, which is not only great for making delicious hot chocolates, but also makes for an excellent milk frother!
