Mother’s Day Gift Guide
The time of year has come when Mums finally get the praise and recognition they deserve for being the heart and soul of the family. Whether you need advice, motivation or simply a cup of tea and a chat, you can always count on your Mum! So this Mother’s Day, let’s turn the tables and show her that she can rely on you to help make her feel like a million dollars. And of course, you can always rely on Dorton to do that.
This Mother’s Day, rather than turning to the high street to buy your Mum something superficial, why not put in a bit of time and effort to make her something more meaningful? Whether it’s a photo frame, jewellery box, dressing table mirror or an ornament for around the house, we guarantee that she’ll love it, all because it’s come from you!
Check out some of our favourite upcycled Mother’s Day gifts below and be inspired to create something similar of your own with our reclaimed products.
If, like many Mums out there, yours loves nothing more than a bunch of flowers to brighten up her home, then this first salvage gift idea will be a sure winner! Take one of our weathered clay landrains and transform it into a beautiful flower vase.
Wooden Wall Art
Even though you’ve outgrown your school days, your Mum will always appreciate something on display that you’ve made! Use one of our reclaimed wooden school worktops to create a base and then cut up pieces of our second-hand scaffold boards to create your very own masterpiece.
A females best friend! Over the years women tend to accumulate various pieces of jewellery, but with no where to keep it, it often goes missing! But not anymore! Take one of our zinc planters, and with a little bit of TLC and a lick of paint, it will look brand new!
Photo Frame Wall
There’s nothing more precious than a family photo. They bring back memories and instantly put a smile on the face. So this Mother’s Day, make that smile wider than ever before by making your own photo frame wall! Simply take some of our reclaimed hardwood timber and assemble frames in any shape and size you desire. Add in your Mum’s favourite photos and give her a gift to treasure.
Dressing Table Mirror
Has your Mum always dreamed of having her very own space to get ready? Well with this salvage gift idea, you can treat her like the Queen she really is! We have a fantastic selection of reproduction mirrors for you to choose from, that, with a bit of love and care, will make a stunning centre piece in your Mums bedroom.
We hope the above has inspired you to gift your Mum with something spectacular this Mother’s Day.
