Happy Mother’s Day

Show your mum some appreciation this year with a beautiful Mother’s Day gift.

It’s great to have an excuse to shower our mums with affection; after years of looking after us, really, they deserve a medal. As an alternative, here are a few gift ideas that are sure to make your mum smile, from beautiful bouquets that will fill the home with the sweet floral scent of spring, to stunning glass designs that will take their breath away. It’s time to show our mums some appreciation for loving and looking after us for so many years, without expecting anything in return.

Here at Cornwall Living we love the selection of Cornish florists that grow and deliver flowers in the Duchy; Clowance Flowers have a bouquet for any occasion and similarly Cornish Blooms have a stunning selection, with both companies delivering flowers throughout Cornwall. Or, if you want long-lasting beauty, then make sure to check out the gorgeous jewellery available at Porthleven’s Jewellery Workshop, and the hand-made glass designs from Jo Downs!
