5 Handpicked Gifts to Delight Mum on Mother's Day
Let’s face it, Mum deserves more than one special day a year. But while that petition’s being sorted out, it’s about time you did your shopping for Mother’s Day — its March 14, by the way.
We know, we know — we’re just as guilty of letting Mother’s Day sneak up on us. But we make up for it by giving our mothers something charming and special on one of the year’s most important days.
With most of the country still under lockdown, it may have been many months since you last spent some real quality time with your mum, gran, or mother-in-law (if you're one of those lucky types who get along with theirs). That’s all the more reason to give Mum and the other motherly figures in your life something meaningful.
Not sure where to start? We’ve put together this list of handpicked Mother’s Day gifts for all kinds of budgets, with each item available here at Contempo.
1. Wood and Tartan Hanging Hearts
This Wood and Tartan Hanging Heart with the words “World’s Best Mum” laser-cut into the wood is sure to bring a smile to your mum’s face. Check out the cute heart cut-out that makes the tartan background stand out in this uniquely Scottish gift item.
We also have a funny version for your gran with the words “Ma Wee Granny” etched on the hanging heart.
Each Wood and Tartan Hanging Heart is lovingly made by hand in Scotland, so no two items will be completely alike.
2. Earth Squared Patchwork Sophie Bag
The Sophie bag by Earth Squared (available in navy and grey) looks good on the outside with its Skandi style print and boasts a roomy interior with a zipped pocket and magnetic top fastening. Finishing up the look of this bag are genuine leather handles, giving them that extra special touch.
As with all Earth Squared bags and products since 2001, the Sophie bag is certified Fair Trade and uses raw materials sourced from farms that provide fair wages and safe working conditions.
Order the Earth Squared Patchwork Sophie Bag at Contempo.
3. Highland Cow Trio Triptych Framed Prints
No gift list on Contempo would be complete without the obligatory highland cow-themed gift item. The Highland Cow Trio Triptych Framed Prints by Sue Gardner features her signature psychedelic illustrations of hairy highland cows.
This item comes with a solid wood frame and glass front, making it ready to hang on any wall in your mum or gran’s home.

5. Twin Glencairn Whisky Glass & Water Jug Set
Who says mums can’t love whisky? If your mum or gran appreciates a nice scotch but usually gets flowers and chocolates every year, Contempo’s got your back with our popular Twin Glencairn Whisky Glass and Water Jug Sets.
Each whisky set is proudly handcrafted in Scotland and comes with a water jug and two Glencairn whisky glasses. The accompanying wood stand comes from a stave upcycled from a whisky barrel.
