With Mother’s Day on 22nd March, it’s time to show the mums in our lives how much we appreciate them and our beautiful Collingwood candles make the ideal present. The fragrances will transport you straight to the seaside, the garden or a gorgeous woodland and the gold on our labels makes them look really special. Plus, the candles are wrapped in our tissue paper, which features our very handsome stag – it’s like a present within a present!
Want to be a super-spoiler? Then why not add in some extras - we’ve hand-picked the best from the high street and online for foodies, gardeners, lovers of a lie-in, stylish hostesses, travellers and nature lovers to match our six fragrances.
If your mum is a foodie, she’ll adore our aromatic Rosemary and Bay candle. Inspire her (and cook something together!) with Jessie Ware and her mum Lennie’s brilliant new cookbook Table Manners. It’s based on the mother/daughter duo’s hugely successful podcast, and has already received rave reviews from Yotam Ottolenghi and Nigella Lawson.
Lost count of the number of sad basil plants you’ve binned? Us too. They’re the divas of the herb world – leave them alone for longer than about a day and they dramatically droop and swoon. So this self-watering herb pot could be a life-changer.
For a bit of fun, these Thornback and Peel oven gloves with their blue teacup print will match your candle perfectly…
The Lie-in Lover
Every mum we know regards having enough sleep as the Holy Grail, and on Mother’s Day, they should finally get a lie in. Make breakfast in bed really special by lighting our springlike Watermint and Sea Salt candle, while eating off this fantastic bed tray from Ikea.
Plus, to ensure a fabulously glamorous night’s sleep, you could indulge your mum with this eco-friendly lavender eye mask.
The Green-fingered Goddess
For the mums who are keen gardeners, one of our delicious Orange Blossom and Fig candles is a reminder that summer in the garden is on its way. It’s the perfect pairing for an actual fig tree – this Brown Turkey Fig is one of the best for the British climate – just find a sunny spot.
For expert design tips, Border in a Box comes with a mood board, a border design template, which you can adapt to fit your space and a plant list, together with two packets of seeds.
Flowers need a vase, and we’re fans of H&M’s very cute glass mini ones. Choose three of different heights for a great table display – or pop one on the Ikea breakfast tray!
The Stylish Hostess
For the mum who loves having people round for drinks, set the mood with our Juniper, Mandarin and Lime candle. Then select your gin – try independent brands Brighton Gin, or Forest Gin, which comes in an unusual porcelain bottle.
For divinely decadent glassware, what could be better than this elegant gold Broste number?
Serve your tipples on a glam gold tray to match, like this simple, hammered design, and prepare for the compliments to flow as freely as the drinks.
The nature lover
For nature loving mums, remind them of their favourite woodland walks with the Cedar, Birch and Vetiver candle. An ideal way to bring nature to you and encourage insects and bees to flourish is with a specially-designed wooden bee house, which will enable them to nest in the garden.
Aerende’s beautiful homewares are made by people facing social challenges. This sustainably sourced, hand-carved Scottish elm board can be used as a chopping board or for serving cheese.
Is your mum dreaming of getting away from it all? Inspire her with our Coastal Lime candle, which transports you straight to the sea. If she’s got a holiday planned, make sure she’s travelling in style with a beautiful, eco-friendly washbag. OneNine5’s has a 100% recycled plastic lining, a detachable airport ‘liquids’ bag and seven compartments.
Or pick one of Club Kokomo’s lightweight, quick-drying, organic cotton towels - there’s a choice of eight colours.
Whatever your mum loves, we hope you all have a very happy Mother’s Day! Don’t forget to order your candle by 18th March, to make sure you’ve got it in time.
