Scandinavian countries typically celebrate Mother’s Day in May when flowers are in full bloom, ready for handpicking. Vibrant yellow wild daffodils are a popular choice of gift in Sweden, where mothers are brought breakfast in bed by the children. In Norway, chocolates form part of the treats, while in Denmark special cakes are made in bakeries across the country. Outdoor pursuits are often enjoyed as a family, taking in the lush countryside returning to full bloom.

Handmade cards are a hallmark of Mors Dag, conveying a personal touch we all can appreciate. Even better, household chores are done by the children, giving mums time to relax- which some might consider the ultimate gift! When it comes to presents, handpicked bouquets of wild spring blossoms and flowers are the traditional choice across the region. But why not go one further and treat your mother to an elegant vase or pot to display them in? Our ever-changing selection of new in homeware this Spring includes joyful and exuberantly coloured flowerpots and vases, perfect for enhancing cheery floral displays. 

What are the Best Gifts for Home Decoration?

The ideal home décor gifts are small enough to work into the existing design scheme, and both useful and decorative. Aim for versatility too, so the recipient can use them in a range of rooms. We think you can’t go wrong with decorative accessories which gently but unobtrusively lift the ambiance of any space.

Elegant candle holders and beautifully scented candles are sure to please, and their soft light and gentle fragrances enhance any area. Pretty photo frames make another lovely choice- putting a beautiful picture in for your loved one to cherish creates a perfect present. We have some delightful options still available in our homeware sale, but hurry, as they certainly won’t be around for long!

Cosiness and hygge are still high on the agenda across Scandinavia in March, and all mums will appreciate something snuggly. Comfy chair cushions and throw pillows make for excellent gifts, and can liven up any living space instantly. Featuring impeccable fusions of neutral tones and subtle accents of fresh Springtime colours, seasonal soft furnishings are integral to Scandinavian home décor. Pairing one of our sumptuously soft cushions with a beautiful bouquet of complementary-hued flowers is sure to delight any mum. 

The effort and care put in by our mothers year-round deserve all the respect and appreciation in the world. On Mother’s Day especially, we all hope to make them feel extra special and show how much we care. As well as some long-awaited time to relax, we think a gift for the home that they can enjoy every day makes for the perfect way to give our mums a little treat.
