We know mums are amazing all around the world, but there are none quite like a Scottish Maw. You'll know this if you ever heard your Mum tell you your scrunched up face will stay like that when the wind changed and find yourself many years later repeating this to your children, along with many other Scottish witticisms that we love!
A mother figure is something that most of us have been fortunate enough to experience in our lives, and when it comes to saying thank you, there are lots of ways to show how much we care and celebrate all the things they do for us. We should always let our mums know how much we appreciate them, but Mothering Sunday is the day that is all about them. So, if you are still looking for the perfect present, look no further. We'll take you through four of our most special gifts, along with our favourite Scottish Mum sayings. Both are sure to bring a smile this Mother's Day - while making sure that you'll no be smiling on the other side of your face!
1. Harris Tweed Handbags
‘Whit’s for ye, will no go by ye’
Harris Tweed is one of the most sought-after textiles in the world. The skills used to create the tweed have been handed down through the generations for more than 100 years. Handwoven by islanders in Scotland's Outer Hebrides, the expertly crafted wool blend is consistently beautiful and always fashionable. For a perfect Mother's Day gift, why not consider a stunning Harris Tweed handbag? Your lovely Mum can be at the cutting edge of fashion popping to the shop for the 'messages' because what's for them will certainly not be going by them this Mother's Day.
2. Heathergems Jewellery
‘You’d get a piece at anybody’s door’
Heathergems has crafted exceptional Scottish jewellery and giftware from Pitlochry since the 1950s. Heathergem products are made from natural heather stems, which makes them imaginative and unique. So unique that no two items are the same! Our Heathergems' stock includes necklaces, bracelets, earrings, brooches and rings, in various styles. So, we are confident that you will find a beautiful gift for Mother's Day that is as special as your Mum thinks you are (earning you the best 'pieces' wherever you go).
3. Wrendle Animal Stationery
‘Haud yer wheesht’
Wrendale Designs is an award-winning producer of greeting cards, stationery and giftware that feature animal characters created by artist Hannah Dale. Inspired by the countryside, the designs are beautifully made and showcase the animals we all know and love. Why not treat your Mum to some Wrendale stationery? The Highland Coo notebook is sure to be a great addition to an organised mum's collection - even if you're told to 'haud yer wheest' if you interrupt a list-making session.
4. Wrendale Gardening Kneeler
‘Do you think I could get a washing oot?’
Springtime is the air (we hope) and it is great time to think about the garden. Our waterproof Wrendale foam-padded kneeler makes gardening both comfortable and stylish -thanks to the beautifully illustrated rabbits on the 'Daisy Chain' design. Any green fingered Mum would be delighted with this gift, and it's perfect for those days when we can definitely get the washing oot!
Our Mums are undoubtedly amazing, and at the end of the day, what they want most is for their children to happy and healthy – and they definitely don't mind us being a wee bit cheeky on occasion.
Whether you are a mum yourself or celebrating yours – or both – Happy Mother's Day!
