Why floating shelves make the perfect Mother’s Day gift
by Freddie Armstrong
If you’re looking for a Mother’s Day gift with a difference, you’ve come to the right place. As strange as it sounds, floating shelves are the ideal gift for your mum this Mothering Sunday. Not convinced? Here’s why…
Floating shelves are for life, not just for Mother’s Day
Flowers wither, chocolates get eaten and Prosecco gets guzzled. Floating shelves, on the other hand, are built to last.
Getting something for your mum that she can put into her house and think of you every time she looks at it, will bring her a great deal of pleasure. Of course, we’re not suggesting you just hand a floating shelf over to her, you can also install it for her as part of your gift. Thoughtful and practical.
Floating shelves will give a whole new feel to a room
We all like receiving gifts for our home and floating shelves are no different. Adding a floating shelf or three into your living space can create a new focal point in your room and, with a few select items on top of the floating shelf, it’s a really simple way to transform a room.
Which brings us to our next point…
Bring along some Mother’s Day themed decorations
Your mum is probably going to have an idea of what she’d like to put on her floating shelf, but so that you can make the gift even more special on the big day, bring some items with you to make her floating shelf suitably celebratory.
A framed picture of the family, a bunch of daffodils or tulips and some spring-themed bunting (think yellow or pastel pink), all look really good on a floating shelf.
Floating shelves to suit all homes…
Our range of solid wood floating shelves come in a wide variety of colour finishes and size options, so you’re sure to find one to suit your mum’s home.
Our rustic oak shelves, for example, look great in a country-style kitchen, while our solid oak floating shelves look suitably stylish in any living room.
With regards to colours, walnut or jacobean look amazing in more rustic properties, while white or pale grey colours give the floating shelves a more modern feel. Of course, if you want to switch things up, the deeper, darker colours also make a lovely contrast in more modern living spaces.
Buy your floating shelf today to get it in time for Mother’s Day
A floating shelf is an original and thoughtful Mother’s Day gift, especially if you add on the little extra decorations we mentioned above.
