Mother’s Day Gifts for the Interior Design Lover


Whether your mum is a corporate heavyweight continuing to work 12-hour shifts in the office or a stay-at-home domestic goddess, you can be certain that she has a deep love for her home. Yet, every Mother’s Day both sons and daughters gift their mother with a typical gift voucher or perfume. At Cherwell, however, we believe a quicker and more heartfelt way to a mother’s heart is through some interior design treasures.

In this article, our team explore three gifts for the mother with a love for interior design. These gifts range in price and include candles, cushions and more. Whichever you choose, you can be assured that your mother will be left delighted on March 26th.

Fragrant Candles

Whether it be a fragrant Yankee candle or beautifully packaged Diptyque candle, there are few mothers who don’t love the warm glow of a candle on a cold winters night. What’s more, with a little persistence you can find a candle that matches perfectly the personality of the individual you’re gifting.

If looking to add a little colour to your mother’s lounge, House of Fraser’s Linea Jar Candle range is certain to delight. These reasonably priced candles provide a subtle yet enlightening scent whilst also providing a glimpse of Moroccan style.

For those looking for a more simplistic design, Selfridge’s range of exclusive Tom Dixon candles is worth considering. They are available in a copper, silver and gold variety and each features the scent of rose petals, cinnamon sticks and herbs.

Unique Cushions

Scatter cushions have become a common sight throughout British homes since the 80s. Yet, this age-old interior design trend is still proving popular among mothers looking to add a unique twist to their lounge or bedroom. This, therefore, makes it an ideal gift for the son or daughter lost on what to buy this March.

For those whose mother has a bright, patterned couch, Selfridge’s range of wool-blend cushions from Raf Simons could prove ideal. Their neutral colours work perfectly with a bright colour and the world-leading fabric used screams quality. Due to their neutral colours, they also work wonderfully in almost any room.

If your mother’s home has a country feel, however, the Montgomery range of cushion covers from Debenhams may prove popular. What’s more, priced at only £12 they provide a more affordable option and work wonderfully with a darker couch.

Mesmerising Art

Losing oneself in a wonderful piece of abstract art is a memorable moment, to say the least. Moreover, giving a gift of a unique piece of artwork is among the most personal ways in which you can celebrate your mother’s ongoing role in your life.

Hoxton Art House, whose wonderful range of abstract art is featured on Not on the High Street, create some of the most wonderful and affordable art pieces available today. Their Botanical Peace Garden Canvas Art is just one of their many designs and works wonderfully in a lounge that’s home to various shades of green.

If in search for a more personal piece of art, Letterfest’s Hand Drawn Bespoke House Sketch is ideal. The North Devon based Letterfest will hand draw a beautiful sketch of your family home along with a personalised message.

Ready for Mother’s Day?

With just days to go until Mother’s Day, we hope these gifts have either ended your quest for the perfect present or inspired you. Cherwell’s team are also here should you be looking to revitalise your own home this year with the introduction of bespoke, timber windows or doors.
