Just because you’re a mum, it doesn’t mean you lose your sense of style! We’ve come up with our top ten suggestions for fresh, modern Mother’s Day gifts that are guaranteed to make your mum’s day on Sunday 6th March.
From individual home style to more traditional gifts, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
1. Large swirl bowl, La Luna
This unusual swirl bowl was inspired by nature and created by La Luna, using inspiration from nature combined with the beauty of porcelain. It would look perfect filled with fresh spring flowers, as the centrepiece of a breakfast table or a gift in its own right. £41, available from IN SPACES.
2. Kivi tealight candle holder in green, Iittala
This simple tealight holder was designed in 1988 by Heikki Orvola for the Finnish design manufacturer Iittala. The chunky glassware multiplies the effect of the candle flame for a bright, clean result. Other colours available. £12, available from Cloudberry Living.
3. Riviera stripe mug, Collier Campbell
You might not be able to give your mother a trip to to the French Riviera, but these brightly coloured, modern mugs will bring a continental flavour to the morning cuppa. Ideal for cheering up grey days, they cost £8 each from Collier Campbell.
4. Sea urchin votive, Monty’s Vintage Shop
This is a really unusual white porcelain tea light holder, with texture of a sea urchin which creates a dappled glow when the candle is lit. Simple and understated, it would fit into any style and looks equally good when not lit. £22, available from Monty’s Vintage Shop.
5. Country heart map, IN SPACES
Give your mum a present that really means something with a reminder of a favourite holiday or dream destination. A high-quality print from an original illustration using a mix of digital and traditional methods. Each print is glazed and cut into a signature heart shape then mounted so it floats above the textured watercolour paper mount. Various countries available. £45 from IN SPACES.
6. Stemless Cognac glasses, Normann Copenhagen
These unusual glasses are a combination of form, function and pleasure and are designed to allow you to enjoy brandy at optimum temperature and volume. The shape of the glass rests perfectly in the open hand and the classic Cognac warming angle is mimicked whenever the glass is put down. On a flat surface it will roll gently back and forth, accentuating the deep colour of the Cognac and releasing its aroma. £35.50 for two, available from Rume.
7. Plaid with stars, HÜBSCH
Treat your mum like a star with this cosy, snuggly, fleecy throw. Ideal for keeping on the sofa to add that extra softness to your living room, or for adding cosy layers to the bed. Was £139, now £97, from At No. 67 Concept Store.
8. Teal crackleglaze vase, The Contemporary Home
Make a statement with this unusual vase in a modern shade with a slight metallic sheen. This would look lovely filled with architectural flowers such as lilies or globe dahlias. £45 from The Contemporary Home.
9. Moon quote print, Of Life and Lemons
This beautiful print features the phrase ‘I Love You to the Moon and Back’ using the different phases of the moon to illustrate the quote. Available in different sizes, prices start at £14.50 for an unframed A4 print from Of Life and Lemons.
10. Wooden letter rack, The Contemporary Home
Even these days when the only personal post many of us receive is greetings cards and post cards, this natural wooden letters box will still find a welcome place in any home. Use it for filing, holding recipe cards or receipts – or even letters. £18 from The Contemporary Home.
