Whether it’s Mother’s Day, her birthday, an anniversary, Christmas or just because you want to show her how much you love her, finding the perfect gift for your mum can be tricky.
You want to find something that’s as wonderful as she is – but where do you start?
Well, what better way to do that than with something artisanal, handcrafted and made with love. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for your mum right now, look no further!
We’ve carefully curated a list of seven great artisan gift ideas that will leave you spoilt for choice. You might even have to buy her two.
1. A beautiful hand-painted ceramic gift
Hand-painted ceramics are beautiful, carefully crafted and best of all, you still have so many gift ideas to choose from.
You could choose something classic like a plate, jewellery dish or mug. After all, these are firm favourites for a reason. Or, if you want something a little different, perhaps a planter for your green-fingered mum or an oil burner to pair with her favourite wax melts or essential oils.
These can be the perfect addition to their home decor, and because many of these are unique, you can give your mum a ceramic that is truly one of a kind.
2. A gourmet coffee blend
Is your mum a coffee enthusiast? If she’s forever asking you to pop round for a coffee, then why not indulge in something special. Artisan coffees are engineered to have beautiful aromas and unique flavours and are often fair trade too.
So for a brew that’s a little different, treat your mum to some gourmet ground coffee. And if she doesn’t have a coffee machine or cafetiere? Well, then you’ll just have to get her one of those too!
3. Something soapy
If you want to get your mum a little gift to pamper herself, there’s nothing better than a soothing, handmade bar of soap. You could even get bars of shampoo and conditioner to complete the set.
These soaps tend to be made with all-natural ingredients and, in most cases, are vegan-friendly products. Best of all, they come in all sorts of wonderful fragrances, including peppermint, lemon, lavender and rosemary.
4. A tasty tea
If a cup of tea is more your mum’s style, then why not gift her a refreshing cuppa for her special day.
You could choose a herbal and fruit tea infusion or perhaps opt for a looseleaf, handcrafted blend. And again, if she doesn’t already have a tea strainer, this might be an extra little gift you can give her.
5. Nourishing all-natural cosmetics
As well as soap, there is also a range of other artisanal cosmetics out there that your mum will love. You could go for a lip balm, body butter or hand cream, all of which will keep her skin feeling fresh and nourished whatever the weather.
These natural balms and butters are great for mums with sensitive or dry skin, as they are free from some of the harmful chemicals found in mainstream products.
You can also choose from an impressive range of fragrances, and these typically contain protective oils and ingredients such as jojoba, botanical oil, shea butter and natural beeswax.
6. Beautiful handmade jewellery
Whether you want something modern or abstract, bold or dainty, featuring sea glass or semi-precious stones, there are lots of talented artists out there creating beautiful handmade jewellery right now.
You can choose from rings, bracelets, necklaces, studs or even dangly earrings; you’re sure to find a unique piece of jewellery that your mum can treasure forever.
You could also opt for something colourful that incorporates elements of nature or keep it classic with dainty detailing or heart shapes to show her you love her.
7. A delicious box of chocolates
Finally, who doesn’t love to receive a box of chocolates?
But our mum deserves more than just a run of the mill Milk Tray; she deserves something special. This gift is also particularly great if your mum has dietary requirements that make store-bought chocolate impossible to eat.
You can choose from classics like truffles and rich dark chocolates to some very unique flavours like passionfruit, peony and ruby chocolate. These also come in many wonderful shapes, from chocolates that look like mini doughnuts to glazed domes or slabs topped with their favourite biscuit treats.
