Mother’s day gift ideas for the home
She deserves a whole heap of gorgeousness showered upon her on Sunday 26th March, so we’ve unwrapped some Mother’s Day gift ideas for the home. Gorgeous pieces with lasting luxe are always desirable, so are sumptuous items with duo use, such as candles in the prettiest pots that can be re-fashioned as dinky jewellery boxes once the candle has safely burned down. On a practical note, our choice of beautiful floral home fragrances last longer than fresh flowers but if you do favour a traditional bouquet as a gift, add a stunning vase to harness “forever” appeal. Mix and match ideas to create an eclectic box of surprises or go for quirkier items and glamorous choices to bestow a touch of decadent styling on the mum you love.
Floral Home Fragrance
Highly desirable flower-inspired items include luxurious candles with an artistic finish to please a lovely mum. The floral notes bring an abundance of garden freshness into the home… without the petals falling off.
Delightful notes of the tuberose plant are at the heart of this wonderfully decadent scent. Top notes of wild green clover, mimosa, and violet frolic together to create exotic charm while tonka bean, orris and amber ensure a beautiful finish.
Gorgeous goldness on the design and its deep Rose fragrance, this truly is a beautiful gift to bestow on someone special – a candle fit for a Queen (mum).
If your mother is not a fan of deeply, heavy florals, this fresh, slightly lemony and flowery Geranium Rosa candle from Diptyque is a perfect choice.
Bring some quirky fabulousness to the idea of gift giving with imaginative buys such as mermaid-inspired candles or candles in pretty porcelain vessels that can double as trinket boxes after candle use. Or consider a collectible investment piece such as the super-glam Lanvin statue that mum can keep forever.
We love the idea of escapism and Mother deserves time away from it all, too. This candle captures imaginative vibes with a jasmine and floral fragrance boosted with a creamy coconut and peach base.
It’s a great-looking gold fish but not as we know it. Made from luxurious fine bone china, this elegant vessel is adorned with an intricate black ink drawing and finished with hand-painted 22 carat gold detail. Mum will love the fragrance notes of provocateur, wild fig, and rose geranium.
If you’re looking for a gift with forever appeal and stylish edge, this porcelain figurine is the one to wrap up with ribbons. This collectible piece is a nod to high-fashion fabulousness – perfect for a modern mother who definitely isn’t a “mumsy” one.
