Each year, Mother’s Day gives children of all ages the chance to celebrate the wonderful women who nurture, support, guide and encourage them. Also known as Mothering Sunday, this special occasion takes place on the second Sunday of May in most countries, including Denmark (where the Bodum® story began) and the US. Families in the UK and several other nations celebrate it in March, in the run-up to Easter.
Mother’s Day focuses primarily on honouring motherhood and celebrating the significant contribution mothers, step-mothers and mothers-in-law make to families’ lives. It’s also a fantastic time for people to show how much other mother figures, such as mature female friends, mean to them.
Why not make the celebrations extra special by giving your mom (sometimes spelt ‘mum’) or another mother figure a Mother’s Day gift intended to enhance her daily life? Our Mother’s Day gift guide is full of ideas, inspiration and innovative homeware designs. We hope that it’ll encourage you to spend quality time with the lady you look up to the most.
For a reinvigorating start to Mother’s Day, we suggest presenting your mom with the Pour Over Coffee Maker so she can brew delicious hot drinks in style. Pour over coffee is renowned for its rich taste and captivating aroma. What’s more, it’s ready to enjoy in minutes (our handy pour over guide explains how to make the perfect pot).
In addition to being an elegant kitchen essential, the Pour Over is ideal for eco-conscious coffee fans. It features a permanent stainless steel filter, so Mom can wave goodbye to throwaway paper versions, and is wrapped in a smooth cuff made of sustainable cork.
Our striking coffee maker and Melior® Gooseneck Water Kettle are an appealing combination, much like great coffee and great conversation! Thanks to its specially shaped spout, which offers more control over the water flow than a standard kettle, the Melior®’s lucky recipient can brew perfect pour over coffee with precision. Like the Pour Over, the gooseneck kettle is enhanced by cork details, ensuring it’s as eye-catching as it is efficient.
Is your mom not only a brilliant parent but also a brilliant baker? Is her kitchen well stocked with jars of cookies, trays of muffins and other homemade goodies? Does the glorious aroma of freshly baked bread greet you at the front door?
For Mother’s Day, you can show this cake-maker extraordinaire how much you appreciate her efforts by upgrading one of her key kitchen appliances. Mom is sure to love our Bistro Electric Stand Mixer – it delivers up to twice the power of traditional stand mixers and features seven speed settings, making light work of whisking, beating and kneading.
Remember the joy of baking with your mom when you were little? Recapture the magic on Mother’s Day by making a cake together, ably assisted by the powerful Bistro mixer. You’ll find its generously sized mixing bowl, lift-and-lock head and stable base invaluable. The mixer’s chic design will complement Mom’s kitchen and earn her plenty of compliments.
Once you’ve taken your Mother’s Day cake out of the oven, it’s time for you and your mom to reward yourselves for your culinary achievements. So why not sit down together for afternoon tea (with a slice or two of cake, naturally!) in her honour?
Give Mom an Assam Tea Press and she can enjoy tea with an incredibly pure taste on Mother’s Day and beyond. The beauty of our carefully crafted tea press is that it’ll enable her to brew drinks quickly and easily to her desired strength, using either loose leaf tea or tea bags. Lowering the plunger stops the brewing process in an instant and stops leaves escaping.
The Assam’s transparent design is a real talking point. The tea press’ pot benefits from being made of borosilicate glass – it can be relied on to perform wonderfully well without altering the taste of the tea.
A similarly lovely Mother’s Day gift idea is the classic Chambord® Sugar and Creamer Set. We chose brilliant borosilicate glass for its design too, while the distinctive, copper-plated frames bring chic metallic lustre to the table. The sugar bowl and jug are the perfect finishing touches for your mom’s afternoon tea parties and coffee mornings alike.
