Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Taxi driver, chef, therapist, doctor, teacher, artist, housekeeper... Mums can do it all!

So it can be hard to think of brilliantly unique presents for the woman who has given you her all. But fear not - we are here to help you along the way, with some delightfully special gifts for Mothering Sunday!


Flowers are a go-to Mothering Sunday gift ... and for good reason! House plants and flowers brighten the home with their stunning colours and smells. We suggest heading to your local garden centre to find potted flowers or plants. But for those of us who struggle to keep our plants alive, why not change it up and go for faux flowers instead? Faux flowers are forever flowers and their beauty will never fade. Artificial plants and flowers require no maintenance and with so many life-like faux plants available, you can't go wrong!

Whether you decide on faux or real pair the flowers with a beautiful vase and voila: Mother's Day gift sorted!


Cant' decide what to get her? Then let her choose! A Gift Card is an ideal present for the Mother who is hard to buy for (we all know one). It's often thought that this is the lazy option, but we disagree. If your Mumma is one who knows what she likes, then a voucher to spend in her favourite shop is a treat that she will really enjoy spending.


Never underestimate the power of a beautifully scented candle. Whether lit in the bathroom during a lovely long soak in the bath, in the living room when relaxing with a glass of wine for the evening, or during a dinner party, the pleasure us ladies get out of a gorgeous candle it is totally unrivalled. You may be on a candle-ban yourself, but that's no reason not to spoil your mum with one. We can confidently say that our RSG range of Scented Candles has been a roaring success - we can't get enough of them and neither can our customers - they sell out super-fast every time we re-order! So get in there fast and join our addiction!

RSG Top Tip: This is a great gift for the new mummy who's conquering the late night feeds and sleepless nights and for the first time. 


Nothing beats a handmade gift. They are treasured the most by mums around the world, so what better way to show your appreciation that to get creative and spend a little time making something. You can keep it simple by framing a lovely photograph of the two of you together, or draw a picture if you're talented in that department. Creating a collage also looks great and they are super-easy to make.


If you fancy getting out and about with your mam, why not choose an experience like afternoon tea for two? The bonus of this being that you get to enjoy a treat, too! (and spend time together, of course...) If you missed our round-up of fabulous Afternoon Tea Treats happening around the UK this month - check out our March Hot List, here.


Our fabulous team at the RSG concession at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge have chosen this last suggestion, and it might just be our favourite... What could be better than a bottle of bubbly and a stack of stylish champagne saucers?! The Champagne Coupe Stack is always a winning gift because it's not only fun, but it looks great and can come out everytime you're celebrating or have party guests. It's a win-win situation!


If you're still stuck for ideas then head to our Gifts for Mums department for our top pick of unique gifts that are perfect for mum!

xmas list __HG_1


FOR MUM

Teapot

"For my tea-obsessed Mum, one cup just wont do and she’ll love this girlie pink set!"

Afternoon tea with the Duchess, anyone? This elegant and pretty in pink tea set trio is the perfect gift for those tea-guzzlers of the family. The touch of gold adds a luxurious feel to make sure your Mum enjoys her morning brew in style!


FOR DAD

ginkit

"For my Dad who makes his own (delicious!) sloe gin."

Alcohol? Alcohol in a kit? This is the gift your Dad has been waiting for. Seriously. It contains everything you need to turn a generic bottle of vodka into your very own delicious blend of home made gin. (And if by some miracle he doesn't like it, it's yours.)


THE BROTHER

alarm2

"For My Brother, who has a lot of early starts!"

The Leff Amsterdam Block Alarm Clock is so lovely you won't even mind getting up early and having to look at the time! LEFF Amsterdam believes that life’s too beautiful for dull design and boring basics: ‘less of the same, more of the different’. We wholeheartedly agree.


THE GODSON

pencils

"For my Godson who doesn’t stop coloring, even his parent’s walls!"

Pencils that Rock. We love them. Help your younger ones get creative whilst teaching them a thing or two about songs that matter. (We know you're now rocking out to the Rolling Stones. And that's okay.)


THE FRIEND

faux plant

"For my friend that has just brought her first flat, this one will never die!"

Faux plants are now so super that it is almost impossible to tell that they are not real! So, if you are like us and struggle to keep plants alive...they are the perfect answer! Mix and match to create your own garden room or use with hanging baskets for a really effective look.


THE BOSS

planner

"For my work wife, aka my boss, to keep track of our workload."

We could certainly all do with an organisational helping hand. Suitable for menu planning, after school activities, timetables, handing to babysitters, star charts - the list goes on!


THE ROOM MATE

bookends.jpg

"For my book-obsessed room-mate, these will keep her shelves in order and looking chic."

If we live together, what's mine is yours? Isn't that how it goes? If you can bear to give these away, then the lucky recipient can keep all their favourite books or magazines in order between these cute Cactus Bookends. They come gift boxed with a peel off label ready for you to write a Christmassy message!


SECRET SANTA

sketch

"For the work secret Santa, when you work in fashion and only have £5 to spend!"

These Karl Lagerfield and Vivienne Westwood sketchbooks are ideal for jotting down ideas, drawings and designs. The figures are removable and perfect for a bookmark. A lovely surprise gift for fashion lovers!


TREAT YOURSELF

decanter2

"For me! (Well, it is a time for giving!) I’m obsessed with this decanter for my cocktail cabinet."

Tongue in cheek theme and holds booze - excellent! This is a treat if ever we saw one. (Sometimes you have to be a little selfish and keep a few things to yourself.)


THE BFF

love

"For MY BFF - because I love her."

A delicate gold plated necklace with a bold statement. This Love Necklace looks just as beautiful on its own as it does layered with other fine chains. Your best friend will adore this piece just as much as she'll adore you!


THE FINAL TOUCH...

WRAP (1)

"Finally, to wrap it all up – I’m obsessed with this Christmas Garland Ribbon. So perfect to personalise your wrapping!"

We love it too! A personal touch with a colourful festive twist - what more do you need to present your amazing gifts to your amazing friends and family?

 

 

HOW TO HAVE A CREATIVE CHRISTMAS

It’s no secret that Christmas gift buying can be a chore and a bore.

We don’t want to recycle the same old gift ideas year after year, and heaven knows there are only a limited number of times you can look surprised over that set of smelly shower gels...

Christmas is a time of thoughtfulness and cherishing those around you, and we feel that Christmas presents should represent this. Be creative, be quirky.

We have put together a selection of our favourite gifts from our Christmas Catalogue to revitalise your Christmas shopping list from the comfort of your own home...

The Lomography Instant Camera is any aspiring photographer's dream.

lomo

We’re so used to iPhone snaps these days that sometimes we need to step away from the digital and appreciate our lives in a more spontaneous way. Polaroids have made a huge comeback, and allow for instant preservation of your memories in a physical format.

693ed50a361806181191cec6a6002b56

 

We suggest displaying all your photos in a frame for an alternative display. If you are already the proud owner of an instant camera, why not frame some of your favourite shots as a gift for someone else? Our Brass and Glass Frames would be perfect for this vintage style gift.

frames

For those who love a bit of everything. Spoil someone this Christmas with a hamper full of love!

kissbags

The Set of 2 Natural Kiss bags are perfect for this. Embroidered with pink lips and with big handles for practicality, try filling with sweet treats - edible or otherwise - for a gift selection that surprises and delights.

We suggest filling up with luxurious scents and tastes (candles and booze!) for a girly boxing day pamper pack. Have a helping hand...

kissmoon

cocktail

Try mixing up a Christmas Mulled Fizz cocktail given to us by The Cocktail Lovers and bottling up for a sparkly surprise!

d9c7fc713599ccee369a0aaba0308383

If you're looking to buy someone  jewellery this Christmas - be sure they have somewhere just as lovely to keep it!

scissor

Our Ceramic Trinket Trays are presented in beautiful packaging, and though each design is as gorgeous as the next, they look best displaying your delicate items.

These Small Gold Arrow Hoop Earrings are a favourite of ours. Dainty and a little bit dangerous! Wrap up a pair of earrings - or another accessory such as a watch - with one of our trinket trays for a great little Christmas package.

Does someone in your family love books or magazines? Stray from the winter theme and brighten their room with our Pineapple Bookends.

pineapple

We have plenty of quirky reads on offer, but we think it would also be fab to gift someone their favourite magazine subscription and use these book ends as a bold way to display them.

Another challenge - the wrapping! Get even more creative by adding a personalised design to your Christmas gifts. Our Chalkboard Wrapping Kit allows you to draw, write and design for the perfect present.

Happy shopping!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

VISIT OUR POP-UP GIFT SHOP 2015

Last week we launched our first ever pop-up shop within the lovely Oasis store in Oxford Circus. We've given it our all to provide a space worthy of our fabulous customers, and we are very pleased with the results!

We’ve transformed our online emporium into a cave of curiosities where you will find a whole bunch of products – old and new – to spoil yourself and others with this season. The pop-up is jam-packed with quirky items, Christmassy gifts and delightfully unique decorations for your home.
BLOG POST POP UP 1

blah

We are thrilled at the response we’ve had from press and public alike, and are totally in love with having a physical space we can really make our own.

On the night before the launch the team dragged boxes, heaved shelves, hung lighting and wrestled with baubles into the small hours with only each other and coffee cups for company. The result is a truly gorgeous display showing off all our favorite trinkets and treats amid Oasis' wonderful winter clothing collection.

The press launch breakfast was a great success. We'd like to say a huge thank you to all who came, and to the customers who stopped by on the opening day to be the first to explore the shelves.

rsg pop up v&bp

We asked Sophie Fairbairn, our PR and Marketing chief, to summarise her experience supervising the pop-up over the weekend.

"Walking into the Oasis store just off Oxford Street, the first thing you see is the fabulous RSG Fairground lights hanging proudly above the pop-up with glorious gold glitter baubles twinkling in the lights. Immediately it feels like Christmas!"

Quirky pick-me-up gifts have always been her Christmas shopping staple. "The hard work has been done for you and you're left to browse a fantastic range of gifts where you're able to find something for everyone", Sophie says. "Jane and Lucy have curated a great capsule collection for the pop-up which features our most loved gifts which are on display and available to purchase right in the centre of London.

It's also been a great opportunity for us to meet our customers face to face! As an online company, we are often chatting on the phone, but rarely get to see our customers in person - so this has been a real treat for us all in the office too!"

CS-hRNmWoAAFe4T

Whether you've started your Christmas countdown or not, you'd be positively mad to miss out on our festive bits n bobs! We also have exclusive competitions and discounts available for those of you who stop by.

Pop in for a one of a kind Rockett St George experience.

Find us in Oasis, 12-14 Argyll St, London W1F 7T - you can't miss the trademark bright lights!
