Cornish Gifts for Mums – Mother’s Day Sunday 19th March 2023
With a whole fortnight until Mother’s Day, there’s still plenty of time to come up with a carefully thought-out gift – whether that’s for your mum, step-mum, mother figure, or the mother of your child. It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of gifting flowers year after year, but what if you could give her something completely original that shows your love and appreciation?
Well, we’ve made things a little easier and bring you the Shop Cornish Mother’s Day 2023 Gift Guide, jam-packed full of gorgeous Cornish gifts to suit all kinds of mums (and budgets!)
A forever necklace
Huge for 2023, is the pearl necklace. Raved about in Vogue magazine, this classic piece of jewellery has made somewhat of a comeback in the past year or so, and pearls are being sported by all those with a fashionable eye.
Give Mum a beautiful freshwater cultured pearl necklace made by Cornish jewellery designer, Rockpool Jewellery. Each handmade, one-of-a-kind piece is inspired by the Cornish countryside and shoreline, like the Pearl and Silver Leaf Necklace that features a sterling silver leaf, with a stylish toggle clasp. Visit the Rockpool Jewellery website to browse the full collection of pearl necklaces.
Treat her to a box full of award-winning, natural skincare from Scence Skincare. The Bespoke Gift Box can be tailor-made to suit the lady in your life. Simply visit the Scence online shop and choose from the nourishing range of plant and mineral-based balms, perfumes, and deodorants – all with a special 10% discount for Mother’s Day.
Scence Skincare will then box, beautifully wrap, and add your personal message, before mailing straight to your loved one. How’s that for easy?
The best kind of flowers
For a fun spin on traditional Mother’s Day flowers, surprise Mum with Niko Brown’s Fused Glass Flowerpot! With uplifting, spring-like blue and yellow tones, this work of art comes mounted in a handmade frame, ready to hang or lean on a shelf. Flowers that last – perfect!
Art and function
We’re continuing the botanical theme with the Dandelion Clocks Coaster Set by Alchemy Tiles. This unique handmade gift looks exquisite on the coffee table and is almost too beautiful to cover with a mug!
Made from individually hand-carved ceramic inlay tiles, a 1000-year-old craft that has a distinctive crackle glaze effect – each piece is entirely original. From feathers to ferns, and animals to quotes, you’re bound to find a coaster set to match mum’s taste.
The finest G &T
Make a fuss of Mum with a Gin & Tonic Giftbox Set by craft spirit makers, Loveday Gin. This award-winning, female-founded Cornish maker crafts 3 outstanding gins – Falmouth Dry Gin, Golden Hour Gin, and Kissing Gate Gin – all of which are distilled with fresh and foraged botanicals.
Each gin is paired with Navas Premium Tonics and boxed ready for Mum, so all she needs to do is relax with a glass in hand!
Cornish gifts for plant lovers
Succulents not only look incredible in the home, because of their striking shapes and colours, but they’re wonderfully easy to look after too!
Cornish grower, Surreal Succulents is a familiar face at the Chelsea Flower Show and many other well-known British Garden Shows, where they exhibit their extensive collection of succulents.
For a Mother’s Day gift that she’ll love, pick up a Surreal Succulents Hand-Thrown Cornish Terracotta Pot that comes with a delightful range of hand-picked succulents – designed to compliment each other in the pot for a sensational display.
Busy mums deserve restorative skincare and Kelsey Cornish does this brilliantly with her range of creamy Whipped Sugar Scrubs, Foaming Whipped Soaps, and Whipped Body Butters. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin, these all-natural, vegan products are buttery soft and leave skin nourished and smooth.
We love how these whips are packaged with a tempting squiggle in each jar, ready for Mum to scoop out a generous handful at bath time!
Show your gratitude with jewellery
When only jewellery will do, give her a Personalised Silver Porthtowan Heart Bangle by Carole Allen Jewellery. This textured, sterling silver bracelet is enhanced with a pretty copper or rose gold heart, and a hidden personalised message inside, showing just how much you love her.
Available in 3 sizes, and with a gift-wrap option, this exceptionally lovely handmade bangle makes an ideal Mother’s Day gift.
The gift of nature
Mum can attract butterflies to her garden with Sōlseed’s Butterfly Flower Mix – a colourful mix of wildflowers that are abundant in nectar. Wildlife enthusiasts will also enjoy the Bee Flower Mix – which provides a welcoming habitat for many bee species with a pollen-rich array of purple flowers.
Be sure to check out Sōlseed’s full range of seed packets that includes vegetables, herbs, sunflowers, and lots more!
One for the crafty mums
This easy-to-follow crochet basket kit includes recycled cotton cord, reclaimed leather handles, a crochet hook, and a pattern – all presented in a practical drawstring project bag to keep everything neat and tidy. An enjoyable craft set and a useful breadbasket rolled into one!
