With just a week to go until Mother’s Day in Malta, you might be feeling a little stuck for present ideas without the usual fancy lunch reservations and spa vouchers to fall back on this year.
While shops are geared up to open on Monday, it’s always a nice idea to shop local, from designers and craftspeople that might not have physical boutiques but have a pretty as punch online presence.
We’ve rounded up five of our favourite handmade gift ideas that have caught our eye as of late, and the good news is that deliver locally if you get your order in by Monday!
Burlesque Candles – Limited Edition Candle
Candles are always a luxe starting point, and Burlesque Candles are made with soy wax, essential oils and petals to let off the most divine fragrances. Each one is aptly named after a glamorous burlesque star, and they’re every bit as sensual.
Stephanie Borg -‘Ħanina’ Ceramic Vase
As well as her printed aprons, we just can’t get over Stephanie Borg’s wrought iron inspired vases here at Indulge! These decorative black and white beauties are sure to fit right in any design-led interior. Bloomin’ marvellous.
Sef Farruġia – Silk Printed Scarf
Fashion and textile designer Sef Farruġia has been a firm favourite for the past few years, and there’s no sign of that changing any time soon! Her prints are modern classics, and her line of silky cushions are to die for. Go for a chic necktie for easy posting.
Frankly Bold – Statement Jewellery
For all the fashionista mummies out there! Frankly Bold specialise in conversation-starting pieces including unique earrings and necklaces that would look fabulous with a white beach dress or a cashmere jumper for year-round panache.
Sapun Ta’ Malta – Handmade Soap
Sapun Ta’ Malta are a family-run cottage industry who use earthy local ingredients like cold-pressed olive oil, goat’s milk and red clay to produce their beautiful bars of soap. Make your Mother feel like the Goddess she is this year with a bathtime essential fit for a Roman empress!
