William Morris Gifts for Mother's Day

Wednesday, 23 March 2022  |  Admin

After a chilly winter, it has been lovely to see some sunshine this past week. Not only are the daffodils starting to bloom here in the UK, but not that spring has sprung our attentions also turn to Mother's Day (27th of March). This is the time of year that we celebrate our mothers and the impact they have had on our lives, and it is that one special day when sons and daughters get to say a big 'thank you' to their wonderful mums! Many like to give presents, and although the traditional flowers and chocolates are always very much appreciated, it's sometimes nice to think outside the box and give them something a bit more practical, yet pretty, that will last all year round.

So, in our blog today, I thought we would look at one range of sticks that make wonderful gift ideas for mum - our William Morris range of sticks, featuring arts & crafts floral designs.
