I was a bit of a nightmare child; when I was born the nurse told my Mum that I was demanding. She was right! I am incredibly lucky to have such a hardworking, loving and patient mother. With Mother’s day coming up I thought I would share my top gift ideas so you can show her just how much she means to you.
Flowers have traditionally been given to Mother’s on this day for hundreds of years. Workers would pick wild flowers on their way home from work to give to their Mum. This tradition has continued although there are now much more extravagant versions available.
The Bloom & Wild team design “exciting, on-trend bouquets”. Gifts include: sets of mini posies, letterbox flowers and hand tied bouquets. Bloom & Wild also offer a subscription for their letterbox flowers for either 3, 6 or 12 months (perfect if you want to show Mum all year round how much she means to you).
My favourite pick for Mother’s day is the Johnnie Bunch which is a collaboration with Boden, inspired by their Spring collection. It includes quirky ageratum, snapdragons and wildflower foliage.
The White Company are well known for their luxurious and timeless collections. Their fragrances are always incredible and their scented candles are a staple for the home.
The spring candle £20.00 is a lovely way to bring seasonal scents in to the home as this bestseller contains honeysuckle, rose, jasmine and lilac combined with the earthy aroma of freshly mown grass.
The White Company also have a range of deliciously scented bath and body products to enable you to create heavenly spa experiences at home.
As with any celebration (In my family anyway!) food always plays a key part. Traditionally, Simnel cake was often baked or given as a gift to mothers. The cake was decorated with 11 balls of marzipan to represent 11 disciples. If you want to go with tradition, Fortnum & Mason have a selection of Simnel cakes to choose from.
If you want to get an absolute show stopper for your mum, why not get her one of the Fortnum & Mason Mother’s day hampers. The Fit For Your Queen Hamper £150.00 includes lots of treats including: pistachio and clotted cream biscuits, loose leaf teas, champagne and chocolates. The hamper includes everything needed to make her day (and yours too if she shares that bottle of champagne with you!)
Let me know what your plans are for Mother’s day.
