It's a truth universally acknowledged that mums are the most wonderful people ever put on this planet. Mother's Day this year falls on Sunday 22nd March, just incase it has slipped your mind... It's time to think about how you're going to make the person who has always put you first, feel as special as she is. So, whether you're an only child taking on the Mother's Day mission solo or clubbing together with siblings to treat your mum like a Queen this Sunday, now is your time to shine. What's more, it was International Women's Day not so long ago, (Sunday 8th March) so we want to see an extra bit of oomph going into this Mother's Day. We're even throwing a competition... Keep scrolling to find out, what!
A few quotes about Mums to inspire you:
"A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take." - Cardinal Meymillod “Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.” —Unknown
“A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” —Tenneva Jordan
1. Prepare breakfast... with brand new tableware
You can't go wrong with a cup of coffee and a croissant in the morning. Wake up a little earlier than usual and surprise your mum with warm pastries, fresh from the oven, and a lovely cup of coffee. She'll be feeling like the cat who got the cream (or milk... whatever she prefers in her coffee). Our Nordic Sand Mug, £8 is shown on the right in the photo above. Or, how about our handleless model, the Nordic Sand Espresso Mug, £5.50? Hand over a couple of croissants and danish pastries on a Nordic Sand Side Plate, £8 and cut up some fresh fruit to chuck in a Nordic Sand Fruit Bowl, £20.
2. Give your room a glo-up and your mum will be glowing
Our beautiful set of two Onyx T-light Holders, £38 give a sophisticated, hypnotising glow to any room. We love the way the Onyx gemstone captures and projects the flickering flame within in a magical way. If you're looking to treat your mum to something she'll love and probably has nothing like, this is the perfect buy. Perfect for a fancy dinner party table, a hallway display table or a mantlepiece.
3. A book and a new wine glass for Mum's "me-time"
If your mum doesn't enjoy a bit of "me-time" with a cup of tea (or a glass of red) and a book... she's nothing like ours. Hectic family life makes down-time all the more precious for mums. That's why it's not uncommon to find your mum snuggled up on the sofa after a long week, buried in a novel, accompanied by a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Fish about to find out your mum's favourite book or author and buy her something new to read. Then, choose the Smoke red wine glass, £13.50 or the Smoke white wine glass, £12.50 for the perfect gift pairing.
