Mother’s Day has a super-speedy way of rolling round before you’re prepped and ready for it. It’s got something to do with ageing or time-management or the lack thereof. But let’s face it. The Righteous Brothers were wrong – time is not so slow in its turnaround.
And seeing as mums are pretty much the most amazing superheroes we know, we’re keen to recognise their tireless efforts in a thoughtful manner. So we’ve given our grey matter a little canter outside the box and we’ve come up with 50+ Mother’s Day gift suggestions to say we heart you – you’re the bomb.
We’re all about saying I love you in more than words (credit – Extreme). Here’s hoping this helps you on your hunt to do the same.
FOR THE FLOWER CHILD
We’ve found a host of flirty floral Mother’s Day gifts that will look fresh forever, from faux fleurs and floral scents to blowsy blooms to adorn your walls. These beauties will bring some springtime verve to the winter months for your mum.
Chintzy floral designs are delightfully quaint and quintessentially British, making them the ideal the high-tea-loving mums out there. We adore the Miranda Kerr collection or the Royal Albert teaware. So darn pretty!
FOR THE CHOCOLATE LOVER
Chocolate is manna of the gods. The jury is IN on this one. It is heaven-in-the-mouth. But surrendering to its sweet siren call too often can be a slippery slope. Still there are plenty of ways to show your appreciation for its divinity. Take these two fine samples of wall art. Sage words to live by!
Not so keen on the calorific effects of a tête-à-tête with the dark stuff? Gift its richness to your interiors. Autumnal, raw, edgy, urban, chocolate as a hue is uber-versatile.
We adore this Zanui Stanhope Chesterfield Armchair. It’s the perfect haven for hunkering down with a hefty novel (anything from Marian Keys’ Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married to Franzen’s The Corrections will do) and a – well – a hot chocolate. Winter is coming…
Want fries with that? Throw in a Linen House Lark Faux Fur Throw, Blush. Plush-ous.
From L to R: Home & Abode Vogue Umbrella Canvas Print and Americanflat More Issues Than Vogue Watercolour Print Art, available online at Zanui.
FOR THE SOPHISTICATE
She’s more artsy? Try the Miel Canvas Print for retro wall art that she’ll love.
Mr Greengrass Tweed Pot, Half Dipped Tweed Pot and Hive Pot collection, available online at Zanui.
FOR THE HOMEBODY
If your mum is a potterer, set her up with a little something for the garden. Mr Greengrass specialises in en-vogue outdoor décor. The Thoughtful Gardener offers the tools for those wanting to get their hands dirty!
Aura by Tracie Ellis Big Squares Cushions + Throws, available online at Zanui.
She’s not so outdoorsy? Get her a little something to snuggle with. Saint Albans throws are gorgeous and super-soft in alpaca and mohair and wool. She’s more modern in her aesthetic? Shop the Aura by Tracie Ellis range of geo-chic throws, cushions and homewares.
FOR THE FRUITY
From L to R: Ecoya Candles + Diffusers and Amalfi Pina Colada Pineapple Jar, Silver (Set of 2), available online at Zanui.
Alternatively infuse her home with fine fruity perfumes like Ecoya’s Reed Diffuser in French Pear. Divine!
From L to R: Waterford Essentially Lissadel Wine Glass (Set of 2) and Maxwell & Williams glassware, available online at Zanui.
FOR THE THIRSTY HEARTS
So your mum’s a little Dionysian in her approach to life (Dionysus being the god of the grape harvest, wine making and ritual madness!). Svelte glassware makes the experience that much classier.
FOR THE MAD (WO)MEN
When she adores mid-century style, opt for Gatsby-esque dinnerware and en-vogue glassware this Mother’s Day. Wedgwood and Waterford revel in this distinctive look. Gift gold trim and decorative design and cut crystal!
From L to R: Waterford Rebel Bowl, 15cm + Rebel Vase, 20cm, Cafe Lighting York Temple Box, Amalfi Koh Hurricane Candle Holder (Set of 2) and Cafe Lighting York Temple Jar, Tall, available online at Zanui.
Jasper Conran at Wedgwood Chinoiserie Green collection, available online at Zanui.
FOR THE FOODIE
Stylish servingware or Florence Broadhurst’s celebrated designs will also win her heart – select from placemats to kitchen-linen in en-vogue colours like mustard!
FOR THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTEST
She adores entertaining? Jasper Conran at Wedgwood will add an inspired touch to her dinner parties with his Chinoiserie Green collection of servingware. Opt for the 1815 collection of tapas serving plates in high-vibe colours for more relaxed Spanish feasts.
From L to R: Maxwell & Williams Cashmere Enchante collection and Casa Uno Wood/Marble Wide Chopping Board with Handle, available online at Zanui.
Or gift her the Casa Uno Wood/Marble Wide Chopping Board – ideal for tempting the guests to indulge in an array of cheeses, dried fruits and dark chocolate…
FOR THE NATURE LOVER
For mums with green thumbs, how bout a terrarium? For the ornithologists out there, Eva Solo’s collection of sleek bird feeders is the perfect match. Or the Wren Couture Cut from Almond Tree Design captures this feathered love affair in a snapshot!
The Wedgwood Harlequin range draws its design inspiration from the fervour of spring. Adorned with butterflies and festive florals, it is a delightful celebration of the natural world all year round. Too pretty.
FOR THE DIAMOND FANS
So she loves the earth’s response to extreme pressure – fine diamonds!!! – but you’re not flush enough to fund this kind of extravagance? Support this geological interest with statements for her walls! Or cut-crystal in diamond designs…
From L to R: Waterford Lismore Diamond Decanter + Glassware, Cafe Lighting Layla Jewellery Box Bevelled, Vera Wang Wedgwood With Love Nouveau Pearl Gift Box and Royal Albert Cheeky Pink Heart Tray, available online at Zanui.
Or gift her somewhere stylish to store her precious gems this Mother’s Day!
From L to R: Ecoya Candles and Gascoigne & King Patchouli Poppyseed Olive Oil Soap Bar, available online at Zanui.
FOR THE ONE WHO NEEDS PAMPERING
(And let’s face it that’s all of us. In fact you’ve done so well to get this far – put one of these in your cart for yourself – you deserve it.) The Bambury Microplush Bathrobe defines luxury. Choose from a range of mouth-wateringly gorgeous hues for this deliciously soft robe. Yum.
This one is perfect for the newest of mums. Steer away from something for the little person and indulge the one bypassing slumber. 😉 Perfumed candles are also calming and they add aromatic ambience to her home. Or you could treat her to a fragrant soap for a touch of luxury…
FOR THE ETERNAL TRAVELLER
For the mum with itchy feet, feed her wanderlust. The world limits us enough without us limiting ourselves! (Or our mothers in this case!)
We hope that helps you out. Happy Mother’s Day all!
