A Mothers’ Day Gift Inspiration Guide
Mothers’ Day is on March 14th and we’re already starting to think about how we can best celebrate the women who made us who we are today. While you might not be able to take your mum out for the afternoon this year, there are still so many ways to show her you care. This week, the team at Little’s have put their heads together to compile a list of extra special gift ideas that we hope you’ll find inspiring. From sweet treats, to a little bit of culture at home, to the promise of a luxurious getaway later in the year, there’s something here for every mum. Find our recommendations below.
Afternoon Tea at Home (Glasgow & Edinburgh)
With so many restaurants now offering dine-at-home options, why not treat your mum to a delicious Afternoon Tea experience. House for an Art Lover in Glasgow are offering a special ‘Mothers’ Day Afternoon Tea for 2’ which is available for collection on the day and features salmon and crème fraiche filled ciabatta, salted caramel eclairs, and macrons (with vegan options also available). For those nearer to Edinburgh, the Waldorf Astoria have just launched a new ‘Fruits & Blooms Afternoon Tea’ (available for collection or delivery for postcodes EH1-17) featuring beautifully crafted pastries, scones, and finger sandwiches, with a selection of teas and an option to include a bottle of Laurent-Perrier Champagne.
Organic Skin Care from ishga
If your mum loves a good skincare product, then ishga‘s online store is worth checking out for a lovely Mothers’ Day gift. Their award-winning natural skincare is created from sustainably harvested seaweed from the Hebrides. Some of our favourites of theirs include: their Hydrating Hand Cream, their Spa at Home Collection, and their Hebridean Sea Salt Scrub. We’d also add one of their Hand Poured Seaweed Candles in too for good measure.
Rock Rose Gin from Dunnet Bay
For the gin-loving mums, we cannot recommend Dunnet Bay Distillers enough. Their award-winning Rock Rose Gin is excellent: it’s ‘flavourful and fresh, zesty yet berryful with a long smooth finish’ and it comes in a beautiful bottle to boot. What makes a gin from Dunnet Bay stand out as the perfect gift in our eyes though is their ingenious Refill Rewards Club. With this subscription, Dunnet Bay will deliver a monthly box with a chosen refill pouch to your mum, along with accompanying mixers and a tasty surprise each month. Once she’s topped up her bottle, she can simply put the empty pouch in the postbox and Dunnet Bay will take care of the recycling. Delicious, exciting, and eco-friendly: it ticks every box.
National Theatre at Home Subscription
For a different kind of subscription service, you could treat your mum to the gift of unforgettable British theatre with the National Theatre at Home. Filmed in high-definition for cinema, new plays from the National Theatre’s rich archives are featured each month so your mum can enjoy performances at home from acting talents such as Oliva Colman, Tom Hiddleston, Adrian Lester, and Helen McCrory, among many others. As well as supporting the arts, a subscription will give her access to brilliant behind-the-scenes content. Some of the plays featured currently include Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, and August Strindberg’s Julie. Many cultured evenings await!
A Luxury Experience with Glenapp Castle
With the promise of brighter days ahead, treating your mum to a luxury ‘IOU’ would make for the perfect present as we could all do with something special to look forward to. Glenapp Castle is a stunning 5-star castle hotel tucked away in the Ayrshire countryside, and we are certain that their wonderful gift voucher options will spark your imagination. Whether it’s for an unforgettable dining experience in the award-winning Castle dining room, or a two night stay with the promise of stargazing, or a private boat trip to the Isle of Arran: a voucher from Glenapp Castle would ensure your mum the experience of a lifetime.
