A Super Thoughtful Way To Say Happy Mother’s Day

A Super Thoughtful Way To Say Happy Mother’s Day. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. I will be sharing a press release from Driftwood Designs in today’s post. With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gift for the most important woman in your life. While flowers are always a great option, you might want to consider something more unique and long-lasting this year. If you’re looking for something truly special, why not check out the beautiful flower designs offered by Driftwood Designs?

A Super Thoughtful Way To Say Happy Mother’s Day

The tradition of Mothering Sunday goes back well over a hundred years to a time when young people would be sent away to work ‘in service’ and rarely saw their families. So, on the fourth Sunday of Lent, three weeks before Easter, servants were allowed to return to the ‘mother church’ and visit their mother simultaneously. One of the day’s traditions was picking wildflowers on the walk back home to give as a Mothering Sunday gift. Much has changed, but the tradition of giving flowers does not seem to be going anywhere.

The Driftwood Designs offering of beautiful objects was born from Lizzie Spikes’ passion for creating colourful illustrations that can be translated to homewares, cards, prints and more. This means her art can be incorporated into everyday life as practical objects. Her delicate art designs cover numerous themes, including countryside and coastal scenes, animals such as sheep and hares, symbols such as hearts and moons and – notably – many designs incorporating flowers.

This means you can treat mum to a flower design that will last far longer than a bunch of fresh flowers and suit budgets from small children’s pocket money to special treats for grown-up children to show appreciation.

Here are some ideas to get you started:


The essential, of course, and Driftwood has a lovely range of cards with stunning floral designs, starting at prices that won’t be beaten even by tacky supermarket offerings. Choose from the cheery Snowdrops in a Pitcher design, Daisy Beautiful Heart, various daffodil designs and summer flowers, including a bouquet in a vase and a field of sunflowers. Each design is a card to be truly treasured.

If you want something even more unique, two designs of giant paper flower cards come with detachable paper flowers that can be put into a small mug or jar, meaning Mum can keep your flowers on the table or windowsill to make her smile daily.

Affordable Flower Gifts Made To Last

Being on a budget will not prohibit you from getting a pleasing present with a flower theme for Mum. For just £2.25, the Flowers and Bees Small Notebook is illustrated front and back and is the perfect size to tuck into mum’s bag, with plenty of blank pages ready for her lists and doodles. Also, for under £5.00, the Harebells Coaster is a real treat and ideal for her to rest her morning cup of tea or evening tipple.

Moving up slightly in price, the Flowers Makeup / Travel bags are 100% cotton with lining, and the bold colours are bound to bring a smile to Mum’s face while also being practical. Equally striking is the Stop and Smell the Flowers Tea Towel, which is fit for purpose while bringing a colourful and unique design into the kitchen. Or how about a large Flowers China Mug, with striking illustrations of different blooms on a white background to brighten up any coffee time?

Forever Flowers

If you want to give Mum flowers that she can keep in pride of place forever, a more extravagant gift of one of Lizzie’s fine art prints will be the envy of her friends. All the fine art prints are reproductions of original paintings by Lizzie and range in size from A4 (£35.00) to A1 (£82.00). There are many charming floral designs to choose from, including Snowdrops, Blooming Marvellous, Dant Llew (dandelion), Forget Me Nots, 24 Roses and Fox Gloves, so there is bound to be a favourite flower for everyone’s mama. 

For the extra special touch, each Fine Art Print comes in an oak frame and is printed and signed to order.

So, say it with flowers this Mother’s Day, but still give a gift with a difference, whatever your taste, preference or budget. There’s something for every mum!

    My mom loves receiving flowers and cards for Mother’s Day, but I also give her money to spend on things she wants to buy.

    My mom was the last one standing for cards in the family. She just loved to give them and receive them. She kept every single one that was ever sent to her too.

  • Mila R

    I plan to get my mom an amazing card this year, and I was also thinking of going to a ceramic painting studio to create a serving platter for her. Great ideas in your article!

    What a great find! As a mother, I would love to receive one of these cards with the surprise ‘forever’ flowers. I certainly plan to check these out for my own mother to let her know how much I appreciate her.
