It’s time to turn our attention to Mother’s Day (11th March in the UK and 13th May in the USA and Australia) and to finding those truly special gifts for mums everywhere, whether our own, our partner’s or the mother of our children. It’s a chance to celebrate all the work, care and time our mothers have given us, especially as it’s often hard for them to take time to really treat themselves. Mums are busy, whether they are running around after small children, helping care for grandchildren or feeding great hoards of family and friends. Sometimes we need to give them an excuse to stop, pause for a moment in their hectic lives, and remember why we love them.
We’ve got the perfect gifts for moms, however they spend Mother’s Day. From a lazy Sunday breakfast to a weekend away, you can count on us for timeless, classic, elegant and simple linenwares that will last a lifetime.
For a lazy morning
Give your mom a well-earned lie in and make her breakfast in bed for a special treat. These gorgeous linen pyjamas look classy and understated, and would be the perfect attire for a luxuriously slow Sunday morning. Natural linen also helps regulate your body temperature, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter. Tuck her up in some new linen bedlinen: soft, charmingly crumpled and in a huge range of colours to match her bedroom decor. If she loves stylish, no-fuss homewares, a couple of linen cushion covers will always be a hit.
For a family lunch gathering
There’s nothing better than gathering your family together for a big meal, and Mother’s Day is the ideal excuse. If your mom loves cooking, why not gift her a chic new linen apron, or a sumptuous tablecloth? If you’re on a smaller budget we’ve got lots of lovely linen tea towels that will freshen up her kitchen and give her less work to do, thanks to their high absorbency.
For a cosy evening
If your mother loves to cosy up in front of the fire or the TV, you could give her a snuggly wool throw to cuddle up under. These are not only beautiful, they are hardwearing and versatile. Things we know moms appreciate. If your mother is far away this heavenly cashmere blanket will make her think of you every time she wraps herself in it, takes it outside to serve as a picnic rug or drapes it round her shoulders on a cool summer's evening.
For a treaty bathtime
Give your mother the gift of a spa-style bathtime pamper session. We've got super-absorbent huckaback linen towels that are gentle on the skin and quick to dry. We've got neat little storage baskets for you to fill with luxurious bath soaks, soaps and face treatments. Just add some scented candles and a good new book, and your mother can unwind in a blissful bathtime treat.
For a weekend away
Maybe your mother has planned a weekend away with your dad, with you or with her girlfriends. Or maybe you want to treat your partner to some R&R somewhere peaceful. Wherever she's headed why not buy her a linen scarf that will work for day and night, and add a pop of colour all-year-round? Or maybe a linen tote bag so she can travel in style, and fold it away when she's not using it? She might like a new linen shirt dress to refresh her Spring wardrobe - ideal for layering or wearing on its own once things warm up.
We even offer a customising and monogramming service, so if you want to make your gift even more special and personal, here's how we can help.
