Mother’s day

6th March marks Mother’s Day this year – a day to honour the mums and other mother figures in our life. Traditionally a day to send a card, buy a gift or take them somewhere nice, it’s an opportunity to show them how much you care. We’re planning on taking our mums out for Sunday Lunch – it won’t be as good as their Sunday Lunch but it’ll be a well-deserved ‘day off’!

For those of you who are considering a gift, we’ve got a few ideas to help you along the way.

Beyond a bouquet
A beautiful bunch of blooms always bring a smile to the face. However, why not get a gorgeous vase to house them in too. Once the flowers are gone your mum will have a something to enjoy over and over again. Here’s a few that we love to help you on your way.
- The Florabundance Bouquet Vase: A stunning crystal vase that’s shape makes it ideal for a variety of flowers and bouquet sizes
- Large Ink Blue Flower Jar: Handmade, this piece has been inspired by and created with pants in mind and makes a great simple flower vase
- Little Gems Beehive Amber Vase: This petite vase makes a great gift and can be built into a collection to display as a group. Ideal for single stems

Not technically food related, but definitely suitable for aficionado mums out there! Here at Dartington we love a Gin & Tonic, well who doesn’t?! In celebration of this quintessentially British tipple we’ve teamed up with Fever-Tree (makers of the world’s finest natural mixers) to create Gintuition – three glasses designed to complement and enhance your gin based concoction. Buy this gift set for the mum who loves a G&T.

Perhaps you’ve just got married, graduated, had a baby, celebrated something special… Whatever you have going on in your life, a classic picture frame is a lovely way to ‘frame’ a moment. In an age of iPhones and digital photos a physical photo brings nice sense of occasion and can be displayed in your mum’s home. Why not print your favourite family photo and gift it in our Glacier Photo Frame.
