Special Mother’s Day surprises

Heartfelt gifts that will bring a smile to any mother’s face

All mums appreciate a little gift from their offspring on Mother’s Day – and something pretty for the home never fails to go down well.

Decorative photo frames are a great way to show your love. Parlane’s frame with dangling crystal hearts and oval hearts frame are full of understated elegance that would suit any style of room, while the double frame from Heaven Sends – inscribed with touching sentiments – is perfect for homes with a contemporary edge (1). The Heaven Sends ‘Love is all you need’ frame and ‘You are Loved’ wooden sign (6) are just as thoughtful in message, but have a more homely feel and can be hung on the wall or left freestanding.

The shabby chic Heaven Sends two-drawer chest with heart hanging handles (3) will help keep cosmetics accessories or jewellery in one place. And who could resist Parlane’s simple wooden or mother-of-pearl hearts (4): hang them from a doorknob, mirror or even on the wall.

Candles are another can’t-go-wrong gift. Parlane has a selection of scents, including Chai Latte + Ginger, Amber + Jasmine, Lavender + Fresh Cotton and Wild Lily + Meadows (2). The range also offers small glass candles (1 & 6), good if you want to mix and match, and if your mother is a real candle fan, how about a lovely heart-stamped ceramic tealight holder (5)?

The Parlane and Heaven Sends ranges of Mother’s Day gifts are available at selected Spinneys stores
