Mother’s Day will soon be here, so now is an ideal time to think about ways to show your love. This year might involve more online purchases than usual, so it’s best to start looking now, to avoid those frustrating “sold out” signs.
A Gift to Last
A framed print is something that will give pleasure all year round, not just on Mother’s Day. The Positive Print Company makes the most of words to produce uplifting and humorous messages with meaning, offering a choice of sizes and frames. It works with independent women artists, who bring a variety of texts, fonts and bright colours to inspiring sentiments.
Love All Around
Stay with the positivity theme on a screen-printed silk scarf, with a strong pattern of hearts in vibrant colours. Designer Jemima Sara has added an empowering message that will also reinforce the giver’s regard for their parents – Love Yourself Always – because sometimes mums forget to do this. As well as being a beautiful item to wear in lots of different ways, this would look stunning displayed on a wall.
Words to Cherish
Books are always a welcome gift, especially on a day when mum should relax with no work to do. Make your present special by choosing a title from the list at the website of the Folio Society, which specialises in giving books an individual look with pretty jackets and illustrated pages, and sometimes offers signed limited editions. Folio Editions includes works by Oscar Wilde, Margaret Atwood and Maya Angelou, whose “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” has been dressed in a beautiful red and pink cover.
A Touch of Luxury
Pampering should have top priority on Mother’s Day, so why not order a double dose of it? Choose a fragrant candle and alongside it, a delivery of white tulips, in a bundle created by two high-end businesses, Okiki Skincare and Michelle Buabin. As well as top-quality beauty products, Okiki Skincare sells large candles in jars, and for Mother’s Day, the company has teamed up with luxury florist Michelle Buabin, to offer both a candle and a large bouquet of tulips, both predominantly in pristine white to emphasise quality.
Choose a Brownie
Mother’s Day should be all about self-indulgence, so if mum is partial to a brownie or three (and who isn’t?), why not go beyond the customary box of chocs for something a little different? The Bad Brownie range offers something unique for a truly original gift. Brownie Boxes can contain a mix of bestsellers, favourites, vegan, gluten-free or nut-free selections, or simply one flavour. For something extra, opt for a bundle of coffee, brownies and a mug, or sauces and kits to use at home. Alternatively, let mum choose for herself with a Bad Brownie gift token.
If for whatever reason, you won’t be together, these online offerings can all be sent directly. After all, it’s the thought that counts – and an indulgent treat is the best kind of thought for such an important person!
