Mother's Day

05 March, 2020

Our Mum’s are so special, and Mother’s Day is a time to show them just how much they mean to us.

Every year, we seem to be bombarded by advertisements for the same old gift items. From scented candles to bath salts and soaps, the gift options we are most often presented with are not only repetitive and uninspired, but they simply don’t suit the person we’re trying to buy for. At Dibor, we know that every Mum is different, and they deserve a unique gift that will suit their tastes and personalities.

Whether she loves decorating and re-styling the home, enjoys all things crafting, or would prefer to spend time out in the garden – a present that suits her gives a much more personal feel, and shows them not only how well you know them, but how much you care.

“This Mother’s Day I wanted to get my mum something with an extra personal touch, with such a wide array of personalised gifts available finding her the perfect present was an absolute breeze.” – Kyle, Marketplace Account Manager

 

Baking Gifts

Some Mums love spending time in the kitchen, cooking and baking hearty meals and sweet treats, but it isn’t always the most peaceful of places. When the recipe book won’t stay open or the ingredients are hiding away, the kitchen can become quite chaotic.

Create a country kitchen haven for your Mum with tools and accessories to make her time spent cooking simple and stress free. Our farmhouse style cookbook stands with convenient page weights are perfect for making sure that she never loses her place again, while our sweet Bella Perle mini bowls will help her to keep every ingredient organised when doing what she loves best.

 

For Her Home

Instead of giving a gift that will only last a short time, why not treat your Mum to something that will last a lifetime? While a bunch of flowers might stay fresh for a week or so, a beautiful decorative vase to put them in will stand the test of time. Rather than a scented candle which will soon melt away, gift a stylish tea light or candle holder that she can use all year round.

Including decorative ceramic vases, stunning wooden globes and other home accessories, our collection of Mother's Day gifts has been hand-picked for longevity, so that your Mum can see just how much you care every single day.

 

Dressing Table Gifts

“What can I say about my Mum, the most supportive and selfless person I know? It wouldn’t matter if I gifted something expensive or just a handmade card, to my lovely Mum it’s the thought that counts, which is why a personalised gift by Dibor is just perfect, unique and thoughtful. I know she’ll love a Jewellery Box for her dressing table.” – Kirsty, Sales Manager

As much as we might try, sometimes our gifts just don’t seem to come from the heart. With the same repetitive products advertised to us year after year, it can be hard to choose a gift that really demonstrates our love the way we would like it to.

Personalising your gift is a great way to fix this. By adding a simple message or name, you’re showing your Mum that you’ve really thought about her, and you haven’t just grabbed something from the nearest shelf.

Each item in our dressing table collection comes with the option to add your own personal touch. Hand-finished, hand-wrapped and complete with a hand-written gift message, each of our personalised gifts is completely unique, just like your Mum, so she’ll know it was designed just for her.

 

Afternoon Tea

Staying in is the new going out, so treating your Mum to a special afternoon tea at home is a great idea for Mother’s Day. To create an elegant dining experience in her own home, pair stylish clear or coloured glassware with bright and clean Spring floral table linen. Not only will her Mother’s Day experience be as perfect as if you had taken her to the most luxurious tearoom, you can enjoy taking tea together throughout the year.

 

Cheese and Wine

Whatever her personal taste, there’s barely a Mum in the country who doesn’t love a good glass of wine. Pair that with one on the nation’s favourite nibbles, and you’re on to a winner.
With a range of cheese boards, cheese knives, markers, wine glasses and coolers, we have something to suit every cheese and wine lover, whether she loves to host lavish dinner parties for friends and family, or simply enjoys a quiet glass of wine and slice of cheese on an evening.

 

Creative and Craft

“I have travelled the world with my Mum, so the photo box would be a wonderful gift. I would fill it with all of our memories so she could look back at us watching bears in Canada and trekking through mountains in Nepal. The inserts are perfect for keeping shots of each trip together.” – Annie, Graphic Designer

No longer a memory of a bygone age, all things craft-related are very much back in fashion. From scrapbooking to sewing, crocheting and felting, so many of us are getting involved with this creative and fun pastime, and our Mums are certainly no exception.
Whether she is an expert seamstress or a novice knitter, a craft related gift is perfect for Mums who love making and mending their own creations.

 

Gardening Gifts

Mother's Day is a milestone in the year that marks the arrival of Spring, when we all start venturing back out into our gardens. For Mum’s who love spending time outdoors, a gift for the garden can be the perfect pairing of practicality that suits the changing seasons with thoughtfulness that shows just how well you know her.

“It can be quite difficult to buy gifts for my mum as she’s a bit of a tomboy – she doesn’t go for the usual perfume or jewellery. She’s much happier spending her days outside and getting her hands dirty in the garden, so a gift for the garden is the perfect solution.” - Sarah, Brand Copywriter

 

While finding the perfect gift for Mother’s Day can sometimes seem like a daunting challenge, it doesn’t need to be that way. Regardless of how much you spend, the key is to choose a gift that you know will suit her taste and style. When she unwraps a gift on Mother’s Day that matches her personality perfectly, she’ll see just how well you know her, which she knows means you care enough to know what she loves – a gift more priceless than the present itself.

Mother's Day

01 March, 2019

Every Mother’s Day, no matter how old you are, you always hear the same old adage: “homemade is best.” When I was little, that was easy. School was the best place to craft my mum an egg cup daffodil or a calendar of a poorly drawn cat. It’s as you get older that making gifts get harder – especially with the multitude of fantastic real things you can find anywhere these days.

But mum’s hard to buy for, and the pressure of giving her something she’ll really love always gets to me, so last year I had an idea. For Christmas, I was given a beginner’s embroidery kit I’d thought would be good to get into, and I thought I’d stitch her something.

undefined

Somewhat recklessly, I decided on a negative space design with her initial. It was going to be great! It’s the sort of gift you see on the front pages of Pinterest that fill you with jealousy and admiration. But it was possibly too ambitious for me, with my few weeks of experience.

Still, I made it. True, it wasn’t perfect, and I had to outline the “A” because you could barely tell what it was, but my mum loved it! And that’s saying something, given that she’s been a seamstress for 40 years and gets annoyed at badly sewn buttons. In fact, she loved my little embroidery so much, she used her own talents and turned it into a patch to sew on her jacket!

undefined

I still think it doesn’t look like an adult made it, but that only encouraged me to keep working on my hobby. Now, I think my work looks much better and I’ve even had a few commissions! If it wasn’t for my mum’s support and praise, I probably would have given it up.

…So now I have to think about what to make her this year!

Time to Start Christmas Shopping - with Dibor!

10 November, 2017

You've probably all seen the start of Christmas products creeping into supermarkets for the last couple of months - it's finally time for people to start stocking up for the most wonderful time of the year, and there's no better place to start shopping early than Dibor.

There's so much to think about around the festive season, isn't there? You need to organise advent calendars, Christmas stockings, decorations - it's enough to make you lose your hair, and then, of course, the moment you log onto Facebook you're met with one of those 'chipper' friends declaring it's so many days or sleeps away. We don't think that's entirely fair; there's still plenty of time! And that means, if you start now, you can spend the back half of December relaxing while your friends and family are rushing back and forth.

It's true that the festive season seems to come around faster and faster every year. But relax! Sit back, have a nice hot chocolate and we'll help you out. There's no need to panic - we have everything you need here.

undefined

So, let's see - what comes first? Well, why not start off with a wooden advent calendar. They may be more expensive than those cheap things in the pound shop, but they're perfect to use year upon year, look fabulous and can be filled with gifts of your choice. We think that's a win-win situation, so we'd like to offer one of our favourites from the latest line of Christmas stock. This Fabric Christmas Tree Advent Calendar is made from soft fabric and easily hangs from doors, picture hooks and more.

undefined

Of course, that's only the beginning. You may have the kids' advent calendar sorted - perfect! But what about their Christmas stockings? There's so many on the market this year it's quite possible be unable to see the wood for the trees - we get it, it's not easy! There's a lot of stockings out there but you don't always want something bright red hanging off of your mantelpiece; it can get very distracting, can't it? Why not try this trendy Tweed alternative. With layers of brown, cream, dogtooth and plaid, this Glencoe Gentry Tartan Christmas Stocking is a great alternative style that's a little bit more grown up and interesting.

undefined

There, that's your second step completed. What next? Well, your home requires festive decorations, naturally - and there's nothing more traditional than a wreath hung upon the door. We've got a great range of these this year - but to match our nice, country feel theme we think there's only one wreath that's sure to work, and it's so beautifully traditional you may wish to keep it out all year!

undefined

There - three steps closer to an ideal Christmas. Now it's time to relax with a glass of mulled wine. What's that? You don't have any nice mulled wine mugs? Panic not - we've got our Pair of Luxury Mulled Wine Glasses

this set is an absolute steal - and that's more money you can spend on the Christmas Turkey. (I'm afraid we can't provide that one.)

Oh - and before we forget - here's that slow cooker mulled wine recipe again, if you need it:
