On May 8th, it’s Mothers’ Day in the USA. Here’s our pick of some of the most beautiful gifts for you to show your appreciation this Mothers’ Day – and, best of all, they’re all sustainable and made from paper.
It might be traditional to show your appreciation with flowers on Mothers’ Day, but these gifts have a much longer shelf-life and are equally sustainable. We hope this list offers you some inspiration for some beautiful mothers’ day gifts made from paper.
If your mother loves crafting, this is a beautiful idea that we’re sure she’ll love. A twist on the traditional Mothers’ Day bouquet, this is a flower arrangement that will last and last. It’s a paper kit that offers your mother the opportunity to transform beautiful 2D papers into fabulous 3D flowers and foliage. We recommend you use the Universal 80 g.m-2 Navigator paper due to its special surface treatment, which will surely produce beautiful bouquets.
This beautiful book offers double inspiration – it showcases both creative interior design ideas and the creative lives of artists by revealing how modern craftspeople and artists take inspiration from the transformation of their home interiors and surroundings to live a creative life. If your mother has a creative leaning, then this book is sure to delight.
We’ve all learned to love our outdoor spaces during lockdowns – and, as a result, the hobby of gardening has seen a resurgence lately. If your mother is lucky enough to have her own garden or outdoor space, we’re sure Sarah Raven’s A Year Full of Flowers: Gardening for all seasons will be appreciated. Its another way to gift a flower bouquet that lasts and lasts – a great gift idea for any green-fingered mums.
If your mother would prefer to enjoy the goods of the garden rather than tend to them, she’ll love this wonderful cookbook by Israeli-born British chef, restaurateur, and food writer Yotam Ottolenghi. Known for his delicious middle-eastern-inspired flavors, Flavour is packed with Ottolenghi’s vegetarian recipes.
