Mum’s The Word
Your mum raised you to be organised! On top of things! Prepared for all occasions! This Mother's Day, don’t rush out in the morning-of to grab a bunch of flowers! We’ve compiled a list of gifts your active marvellous mother will love!
We know that whilst your mum may be your favourite person in the world, she can also be the trickiest person to buy for! A Sunday roast or a bouquet of flowers are failsafe options for a Mother’s Day gift, but why not buy her something a little different? This year, give that special person a present that will improve her wellbeing! We’ve compiled a list of our favourite items the sporty, wellness-loving woman in your life will love!

Famed MUA Bobbi Brown was busy during lockdown with a passion project that saw her expand past the eponymous makeup brand she left five years prior and launch a new cosmetics label, Jones Road. We’re huge fans of What The…Foundation? WTF is a tinted moisture balm meets traditional foundation. It blends seamlessly into the skin – leaving you with an even, fresh complexion that looks like your skin on its best day. WTF includes skin-nourishing ingredients like Jojoba Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate and offers buildable, light-medium coverage that is perfect for all ages. Choose from one of 12 shades, created to blend across all skin tones. WTF is a first of its kind innovation in the clean beauty space.
How about a bit of culture? Akram Khan’s new dance-theatre production is based on the original story of Rudyard Kipling’s much-loved family classic The Jungle Book. Akram and his team have reinvented the journey of Mowgli through the eyes of a climate refugee. It features an original score, ten international dancers and state-of-the-art animation and visuals. Jungle Book Reimagined is a beautifully compelling and vital piece of storytelling about our intrinsic need to belong and bond with others, and placing the importance of connecting with and respecting our natural world at its heart. It is running at London’s iconic Sadler’s Wells theatre between 4th-15th April.

Practical – tick. Luxurious – tick. Sustainable – tick. Warm – tick. Let’s face it, gloves can be a bit of a boring present, but as we go into spring, there’s no denying – it’s still FREEZING here in the UK! Upgrade her glove game with these beauties from Johnsons of Elgin. They’ve been knitted in Scotland from sumptuous cashmere – the fine yarns give a slim profile, but still lock in maximum warmth. The camel hue is such an elegant alternative to classic neutrals like grey or black. These are the ultimate in practical luxury and are made to last a lifetime.
Everyone needs an extra bit of support! Sports bras are a very complex piece of equipment and an essential part of our workout gear. With so many fashion-based companies releasing (non science-based) sportswear, it’s always been difficult to navigate the world of sports bras, until we found MAAREE! We love how comfortable, stylish and versatile all their products are, but particularly their award-winning Solidarity High Impact Sports Bra. The bra is designed with impact in mind! Perfect for anyone who loves exercise like HIIT, running and combat. The adjustable Overband, convertible shoulder straps and a design using non-elastic and elastic panelling, make for the perfect combination of comfort and performance. Sizes range from 30C to 38G
We know we said giving a bouquet of flowers can be a bit of a cliche, but hear us out. What if you and your mum CREATED the bunch of flowers?! Surround yourself with beautiful blooms as you scour one of the best flower markets in the city and get creative with floral design. The Flower Factory is offering a three-hour floristry class that kicks off with a tour around Columbia Road Flower market in London in the morning (before it gets too busy) where you’ll get the insider scoop on the best places to shop for all your flower needs. After the market tour, you will return to the flower studio and learn to make a seasonal bouquet using the spiralling method. The Flower Factory style is wild, relaxed and unique, but there’s plenty of room for you to express your own creativity! Classes run regularly throughout the year.
After a bit of luxury without breaking the bank? We’ve got you covered! Making snagging, breakage and creased skin a thing of the past! Cult Beauty have come up with their own Satin Pillowcase & Scrunchie Sleep Set that comes encased in a drawstring bag to elevate your mum’s night-time beauty rituals. The perfect pairing to defy breakage and hair kinks, this indulgent set will care for her strands as she sleeps. Her hair will be well-kempt with the midnight-black scrunchie and she can doze off on the ivory pillowcase, safe in the knowledge her lengths will still be shiny and soft come morning!
Whether she’s heading to the gym, walking the dog or hitting the fairways, a mid-layer is a must. Due to their fast drying technical fabrics, stretch and comfort makes them one of the most versatile pieces of clothing one can own. Our friends at TRENDYGOLF have teamed up with Ralph Lauren to bring you this LE Quarter zip from the new season of RLX Ralph Lauren. This piece is great for layering in cooler conditions and can also be worn on its own in warmer conditions. It features a quarter zip neck, flatlock seams, raglan sleeves and a slightly dropped hem for improved coverage. Aside from its fabulous bandana pattern, it’s made from four-way stretch fabric to help keep you comfortable on and off the course. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, this top also offers UV 50+ protection, a must for golf, walking or training in the bright sunshine!
Fancy pushing the er… canoe out?! We’re big fans of The Kingfisher Houseboat located in Kilgetty, Pembrokeshire. This powered off-grid cabin is the perfect place to escape and unwind for a mini-break. The wooden cabin is on the water’s edge and is perfect for those daring enough to take the plunge for a wild swim. A canoe also comes with the cabin – ideal for exploring the lake and there’s plenty of walking trails surrounding this quaint short-stay. Once you’ve had a full day of action, relax by the water with a glass of wine and a BBQ. This beautiful lakeside cabin is sure to leave you and your mum feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Be quick – there are only a few dates left in March and April.
Wishing you all a very happy Mother’s Day!
