With Mother’s Day just around the corner (yes, it’s THIS Sunday) we know there will be a few of you who still need to sort out a suitable gift. But fear not, there’s still time to shop, so whether you’re simply a little stumped over what to buy or had perhaps forgotten altogether, we’ve got the perfect selection of gifts to choose from.
Monogrammed bag tags
Going to the extra effort of adding initials onto a gift just gives it a little more heart, and you’ll get points for an even more thoughtful gesture. Our new personalised bag tags make the perfect present – they can be personalised with up to two initials and come in mint, blush, taupe and black, with silver or gold foil. Mix and match colours or choose a contrasting shade – these tags can be added to any bag, be it a handbag, backpack, holdall or suitcase.
Steamery handheld steamer
Think your mum needs a bit of a break from the ironing? We hear you. And we’ve all arrived to unpack, only to find that that perfectly folded (or so you thought) silk dress has somehow managed to crinkle to within an inch of its life. This beautiful-to-hold, lightweight travel steamer from Stockholm brand Steamery, is designed to keep your clothes crease-free on your travels. Just imagine, no more stories about your mum having to borrow the hotel’s iron that just doesn’t work like the one at home…
Monogrammed luggage straps
Our luggage straps are the perfect way to spot your suitcase in a crowd, and they look super stylish. You can monogram up to three letters in the centre of the leather panel and they’re designed to fit perfectly onto a medium or large Clifton suitcase, though they’ll of course fit other cases too (but aren’t designed for cabin bags). If your mum already owns an Antler case, this is the perfect complementary gift. Like the bag tags, they come in mint, blush, taupe or black, and you can monogram in silver or gold foil.
Compression packing cubes
These packing cubes are the travel hack your mum never knew she needed. Small but mighty, they’ve gone down a storm on social media and are loved by every type of traveller. They’re the only way to organise a suitcase – they come in a set of six or four and are perfect to pack your trousers separately from your tops so you’ll never have to spend time rummaging around a suitcase again. Even better, the compression zip means you can fit even more in. When the time comes and your mum can plan her next getaway, these cubes will be her new best friend.
Collapsible water bottle
This sustainable, innovative and lightweight collapsible water bottle from SuckUK is perfect for your practical, and environmentally aware, mum to keep her hydrated on the move. Even better, it won’t take up much space in her handbag or backpack as, yes you guessed it, it collapses when empty.
Chelsea overnight bag
One of our best-sellers, our Chelsea overnight bag is perfect for the stylish mum who loves an overnight stay (see what we did there) or is an avid gym goer, as it’s the perfect size to house her kit. The bag comes with plenty of pockets including a plush lined protective pocket for a laptop. Designed to coordinate with our Clifton cases, this bag has an external sleeve to slot over a suitcase handle, to make getting around easier than ever. With twin leather carry handles and a removable shoulder strap, it’s a seriously practical piece of luggage that looks great too.
This perfect sized blanket is great for travel or simply wearing as a superlatively soft scarf. Made from 100% lambswool, we sourced it from Edinburgh-based Tartan Blanket Co and it’s inherently anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic. We can’t argue with that, especially at the moment. It may be March, but there’s still a chill in the air, so this present is super cosy-ness guaranteed.
