Mother’s Day gift guide
This Mother’s Day, we want to treat our home-schooling, multi-tasking, hardworking, supermums even more so than ever before.
Falling on 14th March 2021 means that the UK will still be lockdown but that doesn’t mean we can’t send a meaningful gift. At A Whale of a Time, our curated gift boxes bring together products from independent producers across the Scottish Highlands and Islands, all beautifully presented with your own personalised gift card message.
We’ve got plenty of boxes to choose from so you can pick one your mum will love.
The Self Care Box
Since our mums always put us first, they definitely need a little self-care. Help mum recharge body and mind with a little bit of luxury from the Highlands and Islands with The Self Care Box.
This comes with an Atlantic Lights soy wax candle in Beacon scent (Seaweed & Juniper Berry) – trust us, this smells amazing!
Mum will also receive a box of nine mini soaps from Selkie Soaps. Each soap is different, and the range includes Triple Butter (Tangerine, Grapefruit & Lemon), Exfoliating Soap (Ginger & Peppermint) and Rose Soap. She’ll also get a cute jar of Selkie Smooth Body Butter from Selkie Soaps. The gift box is finished off with an Isle of Skye Seaweed Co. Wild Seaweed and Peppermint Lip Balm.
The Tea Box or The Coffee Box
Does your mum prefer a cuppa or a cup of strong coffee? We’ve got both!
Each box comes with a beautiful Cath Waters mug, two Harris Tweed coasters handmade by Lucy Wagtail, a box of biscuits from Island Bakery and a bar of chocolate from Chocolates of Glenshiel.
The Coffee Box: £43
The Tea Box: £40
The Cocktail Box
Since we can’t take mum out for cocktails this year, we’re bringing the cocktails to her!
The Cocktail Box comes with a selection of delicious cocktails from Mix’d – two servings of A Whale of a Time cocktail with soda water, two servings of Vanilla Espresso Martini and two servings of Maple Old Fashioned.
And to nibble while enjoying her cocktails, mum has a bag of Lightly Salted Seaweed Chips as well as Seaweed & Oat Energy Clusters from Shore.
The I Heart Chocolate Box
Who doesn’t love chocolate? Chocoholic mums are sure to love The I Heart Chocolate Box!
The box comes with a heart – a DIY Harris Tweed lavender heart kit, that is – from Lucy Wagtail. And a selection of three bars of yummy chocolate from Chocolates of Glenshiel; Dark Chocolate & Skye Sea Salt, White Chocolate & Scottish Raspberry and Salted Caramel & Hazelnut. Mum is definitely not sharing these!
The Wee Treat Box
If your mum has a wee sweet tooth, The Wee Treat Box may be just what she wants!
It comes with two packets of biscuits – Blonde Chocaccinos and Shortbread Biscuits from the Island Bakery. And two bars of chocolate from Chocolates of Glenshiel – Milk Chocolate & Highland Roast Coffee and a bar of Dark Chocolate & Haggis Spice. All beautifully packaged with a gift card for a bargain price!
Mum in a Million Box
Made especially for your mum in a million this Mother’s Day, the Mum in a Million Box will help her have a little ‘me time’.
It comes with a Lucy Wagtail DIY Harris Tweed lavender heart kit and a Hebrides Colouring Book from Baile Mor Books complete with 12 mini colouring pencils.
She’ll also receive a Cath Waters A6 notepad and a box of four pencils with fun messages from Pencil Me In. This special gift is topped off with a bar of our favourite Chocolates of Glenshiel chocolate!
