Gift ideas for a truly memorable Mother's Day

We all appreciate the opportunity to say a very special thank you to the wonderful people in our lives. And, whether it’s your mum, grandmum, friend, or simply a lovely lady who deserves a bit of extra recognition, Mother’s Day is the perfect occasion to send some more love their way.

To help you find a gift that’s guaranteed to deliver a smile, here are some of our favourite picks from the Whistlefish range.

For every day

A wonderful way to mark Mother’s Day, is with a gift that can be enjoyed day-in and day-out. That way, she’ll think of you each time she sees or uses it. Opting for a gift that can be used in the home is a great place to start. If she loves to cook, then an art-inspired apron or tea towel will be a welcome accessory. Or, if you want to celebrate all the times you’ve come together and shared new, stories or moments over a simple cup of tea, then a mug is a fittingly sweet gesture! (They also come with a matching tin for extra pretty points.)

The essentials

Hit a note with your loved one by gifting them something they just can’t live without. What’s everyone’s main accessory? A bag! A tote bag or jute bag is wonderfully useful, meaning she will take it everywhere and use it endlessly. But this isn’t only a practical gift, it’s a lovely one too. These bags boast a range of eye-catching designs, from beautiful coastal scenes inspired by Cornwall and beyond, to delicate and vibrant florals - which truly mark this joyful time of year.

In every bag, you’ll find a notebook. An equally essential item, a notebook is there for her every need. From simply jotting down a shopping list, name or number, to scribbling musings, thoughts or even sketches. Whatever her preference, it’s a handy little must-have.

Say it with art

As they say, a picture can paint a thousand words, and it really is true! Gifting art this Mother’s Day is an extra special way to celebrate the special person in your life. It allows you to be creative and bold, while choosing something that will really strike a chord with their taste and interests. With everything from art prints of animals, seascapes and travel, to canvas art with coastal scenes and florals, there’s a piece that will blow them away.

And last but not least, there’s the ultimate and timeless gesture of affection: a card. No matter how you decide to celebrate Mother’s Day, with or without a gift, a thoughtfully-selected greeting card is a truly meaningful way to show you care.
