The key to a really good Mother’s Day present is to make it personal. Don’t just go for the generic flowers or chocolates this year, think of the things that make your mum smile; her hobbies, her passions, perhaps the thing she only gets to do when all the jobs she does for everyone else are done…
Anyone who loves gardening understands the importance of bees and the vital role they play in our environment and food chain. Our beautiful new honeycomb range celebrates the humble little bee and all it stands for and is bound to be well received by nature lovers and gardeners alike. You can keep it simple with a basic geometric stud or go more literal with the addition of delicately modelled little bees. We also have a matching pendant available so there is something to suit all tastes.
If you feel like you are often playing second fiddle to the family pet when it comes to mums’ affections, she might appreciate a gift that acknowledges her first love! We have a plentiful supply of jewellery for those who love dogs and cats ranging from the super cute to more subtle and sophisticated designs. We also cater for those who prefer their animals to be a little on the more obscure side with pandas, seahorses, owls and butterflies. I’ve included some of the selection below but we have a plethora to choose from online.
If mum has slightly more refined taste, Birthstone Jewellery could be a great option to go for. It still has that personal touch that shows that you’ve thought about it, but in a way that only the recipient is aware of. We carry a full range of both earrings and pendants set with Birthstones in a simple but elegant style suitable for any occasion.
If your mum is something of a fashionista, she is highly likely to have some sort of charm bracelet which provides a great opportunity for gifts. Charms come in every conceivable shape, style, colour and theme so there is truly something to commemorate every event, hobby or passion.
Two charms embodying a lovely sentiment for Mother’s Day, are the Sterling Silver Star and the Swarovski Pave Edelweiss, both pictured above. Straightforward and to the point (ha-ha!!), a star can say all you need to say in a modern and contemporary way. On the flipside, The Edelweiss has been the subject of myth and legend for many years with symbolism changing on a regular basis. Famously sung about in The Sound of Music, historically the Edelweiss is a symbol of courage, honour and nobility but also and more importantly, true and eternal love. What could be more fitting for Mother’s Day!
