It’s that time of year again! Nope – not Valentine’s Day, not Easter, but Mother’s Day! Here at Enesco, we love celebrating mums, those who are like mums to us, as well as friends and family members who have stepped into a mothering role to help care for and look after the special people in their lives.
That’s why we believe that mums in all their different facets should be celebrated on Mothering Sunday. From birth mums to step mums, grandmothers to God Mothers, big sisters and special friends – you all possess the beautiful qualities of what it means to be a ‘mum’ and however you’re celebrating Mother’s Day this year, we hope it’s every bit as special as you are.
Of course, if you’re looking for a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift to give to someone special this year, then do we have a gift guide for you…
Pop a cork and raise a glass to Mum this Mother’s Day and let her know just how special she is to you with a gorgeous gift from American glassware artist – Designs by Lolita. We love this Glad You’re My Mum wine glass. With its bright fun shades of vibrant oranges and hot pinks, while being adorned with glitter and pearl-like gems, it’s sure to help your Mother’s Day celebrations go off with a bang this year.
What’s more, the bottom of the wine glass has a very special cocktail recipe written on the bottom of it. So, why not gather the ingredients, get your mum over to your place, and spend some quality time with her in an at-home cocktail making class? After all, making memories with your mum is something to treasure, not just on Mother’s Day, but your whole life through!
A treasured keepsake:
Looking to show your Mum just how much you care with something they can treasure this Mother’s Day and the whole year through? Well, look no further than Demdaco’s Inspired Bells.
The Inspired Bell range features a calming aesthetic and light versatile colour pallet. With gentle hues of creams and gold, earthy tones of stone and grey, and relaxing shades of pale lavender, blues and greens, these delightful hanging decorations feature a twine handle, are presented in their own gift box and include a tag containing a sentimental message.
We adore the Inspired Bell – Mum. With its serene, muted shades of pink and a sweet love heart cut-out detail, along with a lovely sentiment which reads Nobody laughs, cares, comforts, hugs, and loves like Mum, this small gift has huge heart and is sure to show your Mum how much they mean to you this Mother’s Day (and beyond!).
Someone who is like a Mum:
Perhaps you’re looking to buy a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift for a mother-like figure in your life; someone special who you want to celebrate this Mother’s Day and let know just how much they mean to you. Look no further…
Eau Lovely is one of our newer collections and is designed to encourage people to live their happiest, most positive life possible. Created by trained perfumer Rachel McCann in Dublin (did you know she actually learned her craft in Paris – how amazing is that?), the Eau Lovely collection consists of a selection of heart-warming, beautifully fragrant candles and reed diffusers.
We just adore this Eau So Special Candle. Presented in a beautiful glass container, the candle is made from natural soy wax and its fragrance has gorgeous notes of Thai Frangipani and fresh holy basil with a hint of lime zest. What’s more, the candle also includes a special gemstone – the unique gemstone for the Eau So Special Candle is Green Aventurine. Known to be a comforter and heart healer, the gemstone helps to strengthen the message of protection, love, healing and strength. It’s almost as good as a great big warm hug from your special someone – you know the kind, when they wrap their arms around you all your troubles seem to just melt away!
Perhaps you and your family (or maybe even a close friend) have welcomed a new arrival this year. If so and you’re soon to be celebrating your first Mother’s Day as a Mum, then we just love this piece from American artist, Susan Lordi, from her iconic worldwide best-selling collection, Willow Tree.
Called Angel of Mine, the figurine features the form of a woman wearing a flowing white gown, with a tiny little baby snuggled into her chest. The inspiration for this piece? Susan’s own experience of having children and becoming a mum. She explains: “This piece is inspired by the memory of holding my children when they were really tiny. Holding them so close that it involves all of your senses. The scent of the fuzzy head against your cheek, the skin-to-skin warmth, the realization that you can love another being so very, very much. I wanted to capture that sensory memory that every mother has from when she held her newborn infant - an innermost quiet joy. The sentiment has a lullaby feel to it.”
Akin to Lordi’s iconic style and craftsmanship, the sentiment of each Willow Tree piece is open to interpretation. While Angel of Mine comes with a gift tag which reads ‘So loved, so very loved’, and it is through the gentle gestures and subtle tilt of the head that this lovely figurine can be interpreted in many ways through different eyes.
All the fun of being Mum:
If you’re looking for a gorgeous Mother’s Day gift that not only captures the bond between mother and child but is also sweet in its sentiment, capturing the fun and frivolity of being a mum and getting to share in experiences with your little ones as they grow, then we just love this piece from Disney Traditions by Jim Shore. Called The Sweetest Gift, it features Kanga and Roo from Disney’s Winnie the Pooh, seeing lovely little Roo present his mother Kanga with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers in pretty pastel shades of cream, pink and lilac.
As only Jim Shore can, this piece perfectly captures the characteristics of Kanga and Roo, bringing their loving relationship to life in an almost palpable way. The expression on little Roo’s face is of sheer excitement at being able to gift his mummy with something so special, while Kanga is poised with her paws across her chest as if her son’s gesture has touched her heart, with a surprised yet smiling look on her face. A gorgeous gift for little ones to give to their mums this Mother’s Day, while also being a perfect present for Disney Mums to enjoy the whole year through!
And Don’t Forget…
