An ode to mothers’ nature

This Mother’s Day, we’re here to help you treat the mums you know to unique-to-Selfridges gifts and experiences that celebrate the mood-boosting power of nature.

This Mother’s Day, we’re here to help you treat the mums you know to unique-to-Selfridges gifts and experiences that celebrate the mood-boosting power of nature.

Whether she’s had to juggle work calls and home schooling, master the latest video tech, or even welcome a new recruit to the family without the usual hands-on help from family and friends – this year the mothers (and significant others) we know deserve a Mother’s Day to remember. That’s why we’ve looked to the uplifting power of nature to curate the most brilliant gifts (with many bearing our Project Earth seal of approval) and a beautiful nature-inspired poem written especially for Selfridges by poet Theresa Lola. Discover it all here.

From Otiumberg’s delicate British-made pieces, to Kimaï’s statement recycled yellow-gold chains ­­– treat her to a piece of beautifully crafted jewellery that’s made with the earth in mind. For a truly one-of-a-kind piece, there’s also our RESELLFRIDGES edit of archive jewellery pieces, selected by the celebrated magpie of vintage, Susan Caplan.

For seriously special homeware gifts that will remind her of you every day, look no further. Kana London’s handmade and unique ceramics will look perfect on her kitchen table (the bright glaze looks amazing when the sun shines through the window), while 1882 x Bethan Gray’s line-up of striped vases are hand-painted by herself, with a pattern inspired by the billowing sails of Omani fishing boats. Both collections are lovingly handcrafted in the UK.

Perfect for those who love to be prepared for any eventuality, the Aesop Departure Travel Kit is a great way to thank them for always being there. This luxurious mini set includes a nourishing hand balm, gentle hand wash, hydrating face masque and even a refreshing toothpaste – plus, like everything from Aesop, it’s all completely vegan and cruelty-free.

Make her day (and let’s face it, entire year), with a brilliant keep-forever – and earth-conscious – accessory. For The Ages’ Ineva Baguette bag is bright, playful, and made to last a lifetime (hence the label’s name), created with discovered deadstock material from NYC. For classic fashion-loving mums, the Chloé Darryl is a luxurious must-have; its cross-body shape and gold hardware is timeless, and it’s made with buttery-soft responsibly sourced leather, too.

Beyond the usual blooms

Forget hastily bought, generic bouquets and delve into our edit of flower and plant gifts that will bring the most compelling scents, colours and shapes of nature into her home. Our favourites? Your London Flowers’ dried arrangements (for a gift that will last for months, not just days), Canopy Plants’ perfectly potted palms and Moyses Stevens’ hand-selected (and seriously abundant) bouquets.

This year, simple pleasures such as a spritz of a favourite fragrance have been brought into focus, and with these nature-inspired and nature-loving scents, you can treat her to a moment of joyful floral freshness. Floral Street’s Wonderland Peony (a 100% vegan, fresh, light floral fragrance) and Penhaligon’s The Coveted Duchess Rose (a musky rose scent) are both at the top of our wish list, especially as they’re both created and bottled in the UK, helping to support local businesses and communities.

Bring the outdoors in with some of the most evocative – and exceptionally crafted – candles that capture a sense of exploration. Skandinavisk’s RO candle (‘Ro’ is Scandinavian for tranquillity) evokes a subtle scent of fallen leaves and wild violets, and is made from FSC-approved materials (making it truly forest-friendly). Haeckels’ Blean Woods candle is just as evocative (the warm, mossy scent will transport you far away in an instant), and is earth-conscious too; its packaging is completely compostable, while its outer flower seed-paper can be planted in the garden once unwrapped. Genius!

Founded by A-list make-up artist Gucci Westman, Westman Atelier is a vegan beauty label packed with innovative, vegetable-derived ingredients (and long-lasting, highly pigmented colours, too). The Lip Suede compact is the perfect all-in-one make-up gift for busy mums – it contains four vibrant shades that can be swiped and worn separately or blended up and worn all at once. Genius.
