Mother's Day Gift Guide

Say 'I love you' with LinenBarn

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and many of us are faced with the same problem that always strikes at this time of year: how to adequately convey our appreciation for everything our mum has done for us over the years! 

Of course, there’s no gift that can really make that big of a statement, but we can still find items that show her we care enough to choose something that aligns with who she is and what she enjoys. At Linen Barn, we have lots of gifts that suit a range of personalities, but one thing they all have in common is that they’re made of linen. This means they’re elegant, environmentally friendly and luxurious enough to be something she might not have bought for herself. What more could you want from a gift?

Here are our top picks for all kinds of mums!

For a mum who loves entertaining…

The soft pink Blooming Peony Linen Tablecloth will form the perfect backdrop for her to create gorgeous tablescapes for dinner parties. Lovingly made using 100% certified European flax, this environmentally-friendly linen beauty is simple yet classy.

To really tie the whole look together, why not add a set of matching napkins? Both items are available with your choice of mitred corners for a neater look or hand-frayed edges for shabby chic appeal.

For a mum who loves decorating…

If your mum lives firmly by the philosophy that you can never have too many decorations, we’ve got the perfect gift for you. Our Light Pink Polka Dot Linen Table Runner will give her table setting a fun vibe that can transform an everyday meal into a more memorable occasion. It pairs well with many crockery styles and looks amazing set off by a vase of freshly cut flowers.

If you really want to go all out, tuck in a set or two of the coordinating Light Pink Polka Dot Napkins. Handmade using easy-care European flax, they are pre-washed for greater softness and flexibility.

For a mum who loves cooking and hosting…

Any mum who loves cooking and hosting likely already has all the kitchen gadgets and decorations she could ever need. One thing that home cooks can never have enough of? Linen Aprons!

Linen transforms the humble apron from a utilitarian garment into something far more sumptuous. We love the Moss Green Linen Bib Apron as its darker colour means those inevitable spills and splashes will be less visible.

If your mum is more of a fan of muted shades, consider our bib and waist aprons in peach-pink, light blue, or beige gingham. Our entire apron collection is equipped with deep pockets for the ultimate practicality.

Another thing even the most well-equipped home cooks can always use more of is tea towels. While most people tend to go practical here, Mother’s Day is about spoiling your mum, so why not give her our eye-catching White Linen Tea Towel With White Linen Lace? Light and airy with delicate lace detailing, it’s almost too beautiful to use!

For a mum who loves spending time on the beach…

If your mum can’t get enough of the beach, our Linen Resort Towel With Ruffles - Pinstripes is sure to be a hit. The pinstripe design lends a subtly elegant tone, while the ruffles make this unlike any other towel in her collection.

Made of high-quality European linen and generously sized, it comes with its own carrying bag for the ultimate convenience… but don’t let that stop you from giving her a coordinating Linen Tote Bag - Pinstripes for her other beach essentials. She’ll be so thankful you’ve given her another excuse to head to the beach!
