Unique Presents for Mother's Day
Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 19th March and each year it prompts us to show our ongoing admiration for the maternal figures in our lives. Whoever you are shopping for, it’s important to find something meaningful that shows them that they are appreciated and much loved.
This year, why not choose something from our unusual and unique selection? As both givers and receivers, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite gift ideas, to provide you with some inspiration:
Soft pink and exceptionally charming, with a strong, tea rose fragrance, this medium shrub rose may be looking bare right now but give it a month or two and you’ll be able to see why it topped our list. This is a gift that will keep on giving, reminding the receiver of your gratitude every time she looks outside and is delighted by its perfect blooms.
A luxury fragranced candle is always on a wishlist, as it’s something mothers don’t often buy for themselves. Porcelain house Ginori have filled one of their exquisite vessels with delicately scented wax, designed to burn for thirty hours, fragrancing the home with the delicious scent of Moroccan rose, mint and geranium.
Hand embroidered and adorned with glass beads that catch the light, this remarkable swallow brooch sits delicately on the wearer, bringing good will and a sense of wonder. Made to order as part of a small batch, these are special presents that will never go out of style when given with love.
Everyone needs la dolce vita and this gorgeous linen bound book doesn't disappoint. Packed full of colour photographs detailing one of the most romantic and beautiful areas of the world - the Amalfi Coast in Italy - it will inspire and delight both traveller and dreamer.
Intricately hand embroidered, the Kanika cushion has a soft feather filling to ensure it is not just attractive but incredibly comfortable too. A luxurious gift that can be enjoyed for years to come.
What better way to bring daily joy than by gifting a striking teapot. Whimsical and highly ornate, this teapot has been made by West Dorset ceramic artist Miranda Berrows and hand painted with playful stripes.
Impart a sense of peace and tranquillity into a busy life with the relaxing sounds of birdsong. Triggered by movement, these battery operated boxes will happily harmonise for two minutes before quietening, and have an on/off switch for silencing.
This charming bell tent box contains a collection of Bramley products designed to bestow a sense of calm and wellbeing, by inducing sleep and caring for the skin using only the finest essential oils and 100% natural botanicals. And, for an extra special gift, why not enter our competition for a chance to win our Spring Greens Hamper, filled with treats from our friends at Bramley and THE PIG. T&Cs apply.
Beloved of both koalas and flower arrangers, the Eucalyptus gunnii Azure has the most appealing grey blue foliage that, when crushed, releases both distinctive scent and essential oils. It remains attractive year round in a container or garden bed, with pretty white flowers as a bonus during summer.
