Unique Mother's Day

At AUTHOR, we believe in giving a gift as special and exceptional as the recipient themself. With Mother’s Day fast approaching on the 14th of March, we have a beautiful selection of unique gifts that have all been handcrafted sustainably and ethically here in Britain by talented makers. Gift your mother an experience whilst also supporting small, independent British designers and makers.


Tranquil Diffuser
Happy Diffuser

It is important to find time to relax not only for the body but for the mind. Studies have suggested that aromatherapy helps to reduce anxious feelings and gives a multitude of benefits for your mood. What better way to treat your mother than with soothingly scented aromatherapy pieces made in Edinburgh.

Our Wildheart Organic room diffusers are handmade with 100% natural and clean essential oils. Happy and Tranquil are both clear glass, organic, reed diffusers with a very generous 30 mls of pure essential oils all infused in a certified Soil Association organic grain base. Happy has an uplifting but calm scent of Rose and Geranium with a mellow subtleness of Frankincense and Rosewood whilst Tranquil is a relaxing blend of Lavender, Neroli Orange Blossom and Sandalwood. We also provide glass refill bottles for when the scent has run out. We love that these reed diffusers throw a scent generously and for a long time. We have been plagued with diffusers in the past that barely last a week but these gorgeously scented room diffusers will hold the scent up to 6 weeks.

Calm candle, room spray and reed diffuser

Our Calm scented range, also handmade by Wildheart Organics, is available in amber coloured glass to give you that apothecary feel. Calm is a blend of Lavender, Mandarin and Sandalwood and is available as an organic room reed diffuser, a room mist spray and a single wick candle. Hand-poured, pure soy wax and a cotton wick are used to make the candle. All three Calm scented items are made from 100% pure and natural essential oils and available as a gift set.

Give your mother the gift of relaxation with these beautifully scented and relaxing pieces that can be placed in any living space.


Lavender & Vetiver Pillow Spray

We all know how important sleep is for our well-being. Giving the gift of better sleep is a thoughtful gift this mother’s day as it is important to get a full 8 hours and improve the quality of that sleep.

Lavender has long been the scent of choice for sleep improvement and stress relief. Our Lavender & Vetiver Pillow Spray is perfect for a quick spritz on the pillow to send your recipient off to a sleeping state of zen. Handmade by Made On Our Farm, this pillow spray is made from lavender grown on the company’s family farm in the East Coast of Scotland. Lavender’s sedative properties help induce sleep and Vetiver is used for its grounding properties which helps promote sleep and reduce restlessness.

Lavender Gift Set

You can also gift the entire Lavender Gift Set, also made by Made On Our Farm, which includes the pillow spray along with:

1 x Lavender & Rose Bath and Body Oil

1 x Lavender & Rose Face Oil

1 x Lavender & Rose Hand and Body Cream

A perfect gift set to give your mother a soothing experience before bedtime to induce a wonderful night’s sleep, especially if they are always on the go. The Face Oil, Bath & Body Oil and Hand & Body Cream are infused with organic cold-pressed sweet almond oil, rich in Vitamin E, which is skin nourishing and relaxing. All the ingredients in Made On Our Farm products are either grown on their family farm or sourced from neighbouring farms to support local.


Mohair Throws, Image by Klaudia Fedorowicz

We offer a range of accessories that can help create the ‘hygge’ feeling if that is what you are looking to gift (better yet, that ‘Coorie’ feeling – have a look at The Art of Coorie for more on the Scottish version of ‘hygge’). Our Mohair Throws are luxuriously soft, ideal as a cosy, extra layer on a bed or for snuggling on a sofa with a good book or film. These sumptuous throws are handcrafted by one of the last remaining vertical woollen mills in Britain and are available in a variety of pleasing, subtle colours – Blue Dusk, Slate Grey, Plum and Dusty Pink.

100% Cashmere Hot Water Bottle Cover

Comfort can also be found in other ways. For a luxurious gift, we suggest this 100% Cashmere Hot Water Bottle Cover, handwoven in Elgin and hand-finished in Edinburgh by the skilled team at AVA INNES. It features a hidden magnetic clip for fastening and arrives in a special gift box.

We feature a herbal tea that can also be gifted as a soothing gift of comfort. Our Spearmint and Chamomile Tea is organically grown and made in Edinburgh by JustBe Botanicals. This naturally caffeine-free blend is the best of both worlds as it is perfect first thing in the morning with the stimulation of spearmint and ideal last thing at night with the soothing properties of chamomile. It can also be enjoyed cold or frozen into ice cubes to infuse into a G&T.



We offer gift box personalisation if you would like to have a few unique pieces wrapped beautifully together. You may want to put the gorgeous tin of Herbal Tea together with a Bone China Tea Mug, handmade by ceramic artist, Emma Alington, in her Berkshire studio. Or you may want to put a pair of Double Dipped Dinner Candlesticks, handcrafted from beeswax and natural dyes in London, with a box of beautiful Cocktail Napkins, designed and made in Scotland by Iona Crawford. We would be more than happy to create the perfect gift for your mum to show her how special she is this Mother’s Day.

We can add a personal note in the gift box if you would like us to send it out directly (just simply leave a note at checkout what message you would like written).

Please get in touch at if you would like to discuss gift ideas or personalised gift boxes. We can let you know what is available in stock and if there is a lead time for any pieces to be handmade especially for you.
