Mother’s Day is just around the corner – on Sunday 11th March, to be precise. The high street will be filled with all the usual gift options – flowers or chocolate, and various things that may be gratefully received, but only because it’s the thought that counts; probably ending up languishing in a drawer for the rest of 2018.
You love your mum, and she’s as individual a person as you are. You probably want to buy her a gift that means something, something beautiful and original and something that she’ll want to tell people the story behind.
Jewellery, while beautiful, may be considered an obvious choice of Mother’s Day gift by some. That may be true of generic high street pieces, but handcrafted and intricately designed items can be treasured and meaningful. Equally, handbags or pouches may seem an uninspired present – after all, many mums would rather receive something fanciful than functional! However, we think your gift can be both.
Here are TruFlair’s top picks for anyone looking for a truly unique and beautiful Mother’s Day gift, all inspired by traditional Persian artistry:
We can’t think of a better way to show your mum that you love her. 100% handcrafted, in a .925 sterling silver, this necklace reads ‘ESHQ’, which translates as love in Persian. Different, yet elegant, and a great choice for any mum who enjoys standing out from the crowd.
Robins are said to symbolise passion and honour, so this chic and understated design makes for a meaningful Mother’s Day treat. Available in three different sizes, its minimalist feel means it can be worn with many different outfits – perfect for a style maven mum!
Crafted from genuine, handwoven Persian rug, this pure wool and synthetic leather bag is not only striking, but has a truly fascinating history – woven by the women of Afshar, where the tradition of weaving rugs is passed down through generations.
Similar to the Nigella Bucket bag, this pouch embodies history and tradition, created from Kilim rugs and utterly unique in design. The one-of-a-kind weave has marks left by the creator, so this would probably make a fitting gift for a truly one-of-a-kind mum.
Even if these particular choices aren’t quite what you’re looking for, we’re sure that TruFlair has something that will spark your interest – especially with more unique, alluring and artistic products on the horizon.
