Finding the perfect gift for your mum on Mother’s Day can be tricky at the best of time but with Covid-19 still on the loose, this year will be even trickier. When buying gifts I like them to be personal and thoughtful, something far easier to do when shopping in person, at markets and little independent shops, rather than online. But this year we are all having to give in to the world of online shopping for our presents. So, to make the present shopping a little less tricky this year I have come up with the Julian Road Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
Now if you are here you probably already love tweed just as much as I do, and you probably know being Julian Road this guide is going to feature a lot of tweed, but we have been using tweed in ways you wouldn’t even imagine.
Tweed cosmetic bags
First up is our Tweed Cosmetic Bag, this lovely little bag is perfect for stashing all those luxurious make up products you bought your mum at Christmas – or will buy her for her birthday.
You could even go one step further and buy a few new products and some make up brushes to add to the Tweed bag before giving it to her. Like a mini hamper of goodness. To fill the bag our top tips are to choose small British brands so you can support multiple small businesses this Mother’s Day.
These are price at £28 and come in a range of tweeds you can shop the range here
Tweed wrist warmers
The weather might be improving but we all know how in Britain a cold snap could be just around the corner. Treat your mum to some stylish tweed wrist warmers to keep her hands toasty even on the frostiest of days.
I love wearing these while sitting out on my patio in the crisp spring mornings with a cup of tea and a good book.
These are particularly good for mums who love a walk out in the countryside – keeping your fingers free to move while offer warmth, comfort and style. The ideal finishing touch to a country chic outfit.
These are priced at £34 and come in a range of tweeds but my personal favourite is the Green Siskin Tweed, which has a lovely texture and pattern to it, you can shop the whole range here
Tweed slouch bag
If your mum is anything like the mum’s I know she will constantly have a handbag full of everything. It's like a Mary Poppins bag, one that never ends and seems to have the perfect solution for any problem from plasters to a spare lipstick.
Your mum’s handbags work hard carrying everything but the kitchen sink around so why not treat her to new one. One which is stylish, practical and comfortable with plenty of room for everything. The tweed slouch bag is just that ideal for everything from a country dog walk to a day out in the city.
A relaxed everyday tweed bag produced in a gorgeous soft brown herringbone British tweed with tan leather detailing. Worn across the body the bag is not too large, not too small, the perfect size to carry all your necessities.
These are priced at £45 and come in a range of tweeds but my personal favourite is the Country Brown Tweed, which has a gorgeous soft feel to it, you can shop the whole range here
We have all spent a lot of time inside the past 12 months and I am sure most of us have used our slippers far more than we would like to admit. If your mum has been wearing those slippers a bit thin why not treat her to a lovely new pair of tweed ones.
Perfect for after a long day on your feet these slippers are literally a cosy cuddle for your feet. Lined with softest faux fur they mould to the shape of your foot. The sole is in a nonslip suedette. The slippers come in 2 sizes, small/medium which fits a 5-6 and medium/large which fits a 7-8.
These are available in two tweeds, a traditional Green Siskin Tweed and a fun Pink Heather Shetland Twill.
These are price at £35 and you can shop them here
Tweed heart keyring
If you looking for something a little smaller our tweed key rings are the perfect mini gift. Ideal for making those keys un-losable and giving her a little reminder everyday just how much you love her.
These are made from a range of tweeds in stunning colours, from green to pink. They are filled with sheep wool making them highly sustainable as well as stylish.
So, whether your mum loves a bit of pink or prefers a more traditional brown Harris tweed we have the perfect tweed heart for her.
These are price at £8 and come in a range of tweeds you can shop the range here
So, fingers crossed this gift guide gives you some fabulous ideas for your mum on Mother’s Day. We all know how important and special mums are so this year let's really show them how much we care with a stunning British tweed gift that they can cherish for years to come.
