Celebrating Mother’s Day in 2021

Ways to share the love...
They've guided us through life, given us the best advice and baked the scrummiest of cakes. The past year might have been a little short of 'Mum time' so we've put together this guide on how to celebrate Mother's Day (Cornish style, of course) this year.

Send a hug with Atlantic Blankets

Nothing beats a hug with Mum. The closest thing to a cuddle in woven form, Atlantic Blankets are designed in Perranporth and make in Britain using British wool.

Book a surprise visit to Trebah Garden

The Gardens at Trebah may be closed until 29th March, but we’re sure Mum will love having a trip to Trebah to look forward to. With Spring just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to start thinking about the glorious colours and plants that will burst into life over the next few months.

Perk up with Yallah Coffee

It’s no surprise that with the kids only just back in school, Mums up and down the country might be feeling a little more fatigued than usual this year! Our local coffee roasters based just up the road from our office in Mawnan Smith make the best coffee. Perfect for Mother’s Day is a coffee and chocolate bundle set, which includes a bar from our friends at Chocolarder.

Say it with flowers… With M

Send some flowers from our corner of Cornwall to anywhere in the UK with Flowers With M. Offering nationwide delivery from the wonderful Bohl’s Yard in Penryn. You might be a little late for delivery just in time for the big day, but sometimes the best things are worth the wait…

Get Mum inspired with a creative journal

Inspired the higgledey-piggledy streets and rooftops of our very own Falmouth Town, Hometown – A Creative Journal is a wonderful gift that helps unlock inspiration and get anyone excited about what’s around them. The perfect gift for getting to know your town while we wait to be able to travel once again.

Something a little Scilly...

Flowers from the Isles of Scilly

Scilly Flowers offer free nationwide delivery of their famous daffodils – flown straight out of St Martin’s on the famously beautiful Isles of Scilly. Their scented daffodils are heavenly, and anything but a silly gift for Mum. Order an e-voucher straight into Mum’s inbox and she’ll be able to pick when they arrive.

Help mum escape to Cornwall from the armchair

Whilst it might be a few more weeks before we can explore Cornwall again in any physical sense, it’s all for the taking in the mind’s eye! Order a book about Cornwall from our local independent bookshop Falmouth Bookseller and let Mum feel a little bit closer to our sandy shores and mysterious moors. Ordering online from their website means you’ll also be supporting a local Falmouth institution, a double-whammy of feel-good gifting.

Liz Fenwicks ‘A Path to the Sea’ might be a good one to try.

A Cornish breakfast

Breakfast in bed on Mother’s day is a given, surely? If you can’t be there for Mum this year, the promise of a Weekend Breakfast Box from Rick Stiens in the post might just be the next best thing. A selection of produce all from Cornwall, ready to cook at home.

Count some stripes...

Cornishware

Nothing says Cornwall quite like the iconic blue and white stripes of Cornishware. Cornishware has been on a mission to repatriate the entire production process to Cornwall. From personalised mugs for Mum to perfectly simple jugs.
