Mother's Day - A Gift Doesn't Always Come in a Box

When it comes to Mother’s Day there’s nothing like the last-minute panic buy for chocolates and flowers but this year, we vow to do it differently! We’re redefining what it means to give a gift – ever thought of hosting a games night or afternoon tea? Or how about buying those gifts that show you’ve really listened. Here’s a helpful list to make them feel extra special and create memories they’ll never forget.

Afternoon Tea

Who doesn’t love finger sandwiches, cake and tea? Treat them to their very own afternoon tea with our Truly Chintz range. Set the scene with our reversible cake stand to tower those mille-feuille high (no French patisserie chef needed, shop bought is a-ok) and our napkins to dust off the crumbs.

Games Night

They say Gin is a mother’s ruin but in the case of our Gin Game it’s more likely to be mother’s win! Host your very own Gin night: work your way around the board to build your perfect gin and tonic, answering history, trivia and mixology questions which will test everyone’s knowledge.

Murder Mystery

Hosting a dinner party? Why not take it up a notch or two with our roaring 20’s Murder Mystery at the Theatre. Keep everyone guessing as you play out the scenes to find out whodunit.

Interiors? Our very own hand-painted Frida Kahlo cushion will add a pop of colour to any room in the house, plus Frida is our modern-day heroine.

We can all do our bit to reduce our plastic waste, which is why our sustainable travel essentials are the perfect gift. Pick from Palm Print, Tropical Fruit or Boho Floral to brighten up anyone’s commute or lunch break.

You can never have too may notepads these days! Here’s the perfect gift for those who love a list: our Frida Kahlo notepad is functional and stylish all in one.

And finally, our Emporium Buddha Snow Globe acts as a great addition to any book shelf and is a constant reminder to give ourselves just five minutes a day to breathe. #mindfulness
