Gifts for Her on Mothers Day

"Youth fades; love droops, the leaves of friendship fall; A mother's secret hope outlives them all." - Oliver Wendell Holmes

Mothers Day; a day where Mother's all around the world can spend an extra couple of hours in bed, with a freshly brewed cuppa and their favourite book or magazine! We know that with today's busy lifestyle, this might not always be the case....but you can treat your Mum to something special this year to show your appreciation. So, when is Mothers Day? This year, Mothers Day falls on Sunday 26th March 2017. So with it being the beginning of March, you still have time to find a thoughtful gift for her!

Mothering Sunday has moved away from it's traditionally religious roots, and has become a day to celebrate our mothers, and other maternal figures in our lives such as Grandmothers, Stepmothers, Aunties. The date is different each year as it is linked to Easter, both are decided by the lunar calendar, as has been the case since the 16th Century. Mothers Day presents needn't be the usual toiletries, chocolates or flowers. Here at Kernow Furniture, based in the depths of Cornwall, we love to think of antique, vintage and retro lovers receiving a gift that appeals to their unique sense of style!

We've gathered together some of our Mothers Day gift ideas that we think would appeal this Mothering Sunday! You'll find plenty even if you're on tight budget, and many of our smaller items come with free national delivery. If you don't find what you are looking for, you can find our full gift selection here.
