Mother's Day is around the corner!

If you haven’t gotten something yet for mom, don’t panic, you’ve still got a few weeks – that is unless it’s mum you’re shopping for…

While May is traditionally the month for mothers in South Africa and the US, in the UK and some other parts of Europe, Mother’s Day, or Mothering Sunday as it’s best known, is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent – exactly three weeks before Easter. 

Originally observed as a day for people to attend church in their home-town (i.e. return to their “mother” church), it has become more of a general occasion for honouring the mothers of children and giving them presents much like the Mothers Day that’s celebrated elsewhere in May.

For those of you shopping for mum, don’t worry, there’s still some time (Mothering Sunday this year lands on March 26th) and luckily for you, I've got something for every type of mum/mom out there.

For the Working Mom


If your mom’s got hustle, here are a few things to help her work it in style. A new laptop sleeve is the perfect tech accessory to help brighten up her workspace like this ‘The air is scented with my fragrance’ Laptop Sleeve above; you can even find a coordinated phone case to match. 


Does her desk need a little sprucing up? Our new acrylic blocks can help add that touch of personality to her workspace. She'll love ‘A cup of tea solves everything’. 


Studio pouches are the perfect travel accessory for stashing snacks, chargers, pens, cosmetics, and (for extra brownie points) you can give it to her stuffed with treats to make her smile; I think she’ll like ‘Tis Cosmos season!’.

And of course, how about a shiny new travel mug to keep her sipping in style. Check out this inspirational design - Power, Balance, Contentment.

For Active Moms


If your mom is always on the go—running errands or managing young ones—help her find time for some of her own favourite activities like yoga, gardening, spin class, or running; these gifts will help her get started. 
Give her the perfect tank top, like ‘My favourites, garden tools’, then pair it with stretchy leggings to keep her comfortable but creatively fuelled — she’ll just love"Cosmos in a pot" for pure gardening inspiration!

Package the tank top and the leggings in a tote bag like ‘Sweet, delicate Turnips’ below, that she can take on the go, and reuse on the daily for toting gym gear, emergency snacks, or groceries.

For the Homebody Mom

If mom enjoys nothing more than spending time at home, why not help her shake things up a bit? Start with a new duvet cover like…


and tasteful throw pillows like these…

Throw Pillow
The Art of Reverence
Throw Pillow
Daisies for healing
Throw Pillow
African Sunset silhouettes
Throw Pillow
My Flowers and I
…and a colourful mug to warm her hands on cold mornings before starting her hectic day.

Mother's Day is a celebration honouring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. Honour your mother this year by presenting her with a card which you can personalise with a special message like, *"Thank you for being there every day with just the love I needed”* or something straight from your heart — you'll find the right words.
