Best Gifts For Mother’s Day
Best gifts for Mother’s Day…This year Mothering Sunday (or Mother’s Day) falls on Sunday 27 March. The celebration’s origins in the British Isles are believed to go back to the 16th century, when on the third Sunday before Easter everyone would attend a service at their ‘mother church’ – the main church or cathedral in the area. Later, domestic servants were usually given a holiday on that day, both to visit their mother church and to return home to see their families. Walking home along country lanes at the start of spring, they would gather wildflowers from the hedgerows and meadows to present to their mothers.
Today, Mother’s Day is still a time when we give gifts to express our gratitude to our mothers. To help you with some fresh ideas, here is our edit of some of the best.
We love Jing tea and use their Darjeeling Second Flush black tea leaves as one of the extracts for our Tea Rose Collection. Jing founder Ed Eisler credits his mother’s cultivation of home-grown vegetables for his interest in sourcing the best growers of single-origin looseleaf tea. This gift set includes a caddy of Jasmine Silver Needle white tea from Yunnan in China and a one-cup tea-iere.
Or does she prefer coffee? These elegant handmade white bone-china coffee mugs with hand-painted handles are simply irresistible – and now available in a stylish gift box holding a set of four. Can also be used to drink tea, of course.
The Real Flower Company is known for flowers grown sustainably and naturally, with their scent gene intact to please the senses with their beauty and aroma. They smell so good that we chose to use an extract from their rose petals for our Tea Rose Collection. Their Mother’s Day Spring Garden Bouquet is made up of seasonal flowers such as narcissi and tulips hand tied with fragrant herbs and foliage to bring the pleasures of spring into the home.
Yolke has been chosen as one of the prestigious 2022 Walpole Luxury Brands of Tomorrow – an honour Noble Isle received in 2016. We all know the importance of getting a good night’s sleep for our mental and physical wellbeing, and Yolke’s beautiful printed cotton eye mask is guaranteed to help your loved ones to slumber on as the mornings grow lighter.
Mother’s Day is a time of family celebration – and what better way to enjoy bringing everyone together than to open something sparkling? The Simpsons Wine Estate in the Kent North Downs has been producing delicious wines since 2014 – and their grapes are so good, we even use them to make an extract for our Golden Harvest Collection. In 2022, in a great moment for the family, founders Ruth and Charles Simpson were named among the Walpole 50 Most Influential People in British Luxury, alongside our own founder Katy Simpson, Charles’ sister.
Our Bespoke Gifts service allows you to create a personalised gift by selecting your favourite products to be wrapped a beautifully presented package. You can choose Scented Candles, Bath & Shower Gels, Body Creams or Home Fragrance products in different sizes and combinations to suit your taste. For Mother’s Day, we’d recommend our pure and charming Tea Rose Collection, perennial favourite Rhubarb Rhubarb! or Summer Rising with its extracts of Elderflower and Gooseberry.
These dainty earrings are made in the form of a pair of song thrushes that nestle delicately against the ear. Catherine Hills, who created jewellery for the Harry Potter films, takes much of her inspiration from nature, producing unique designs that use the forms and textures of the English countryside. It’s worth browsing her collection to find the perfect gift.
