With less than two weeks to go until the arrival of mother’s day, I find myself on my annual pilgrimage to find something special for my mum.  Flowers are great, but with three brothers’ I can pretty much guarantee she is going to receive enough spring blooms to fill every vase she has at home, and chocolates are a no-no since the middle age spread started spreading!

Therefore, in my aim to find the perfect mother’s day gift I have decided to buy something practical yet beautiful for the home.

My mum is a huge fan of the British countryside and as such her garden is planted with beautiful English flowers and frequented by numerous British birds, so any mother’s day gift with a countryside theme, such as the Friesian Cow Salt & Pepper Pots in the Quail Ceramics collection, is going to impress.

Made in fine china, these beautiful salt & pepper pots will look great in the kitchen, and there are plenty of other pieces to match in this collection, such as these Friesian Cow Milk Jugs.

Available in two different sizes, these stunning black and white milk jugs bear the Q stamp of Quail Ceramics and come in a stylish presentation box.  A wonderful country gift idea for mother’s day, these jugs will turn every breakfast time into a fun dining experience.

The final piece in this trio, the Quail Ceramics Friesian Cow Butter Dish is perfect for any mums who still indulge in ‘real’ butter!  Dishwasher friendly and gift boxed, this fine bone china butter dish will appeal to many mums this mother’s day.

This matching set is sure to put a huge smile on my mum’s face on March 18th, so why not treat your mum to something different and special this mother’s day – she deserves it after all!
