The Best Sustainable Scottish Mother's Day gifts - Made Scotland

The Best Sustainable Scottish Mother's Day gifts

Mar 01, 2024Alexandra Borthwick


Are you looking for a unique Mother's Day gift, something a bit different? Or better still, do you want to find a Mother's Day gift that's sustainable and made in Scotland? I know lots of people do. But I also know that lots of people are too busy to get out and find independent shops and markets. 

So let me help. I've created a Mother's Day gift collection of beautiful, Scottish-made things which you can browse on your phone and buy in just a few clicks. You'll be supporting small businesses, buying from makers and getting something that's handcrafted to a very high standard. These are my highlights but if you've a bit more time, hop onto and browse the whole collection.

Remember, makers are small businesses so make sure you order now to ensure you get it on time.


Happy Mother's Day Cards

This is just one design in a range of cards by Sarah at Lomond Paper Co. They're printed on thick textured paper and are blank inside. All the cards are free shipping. So cracking designs.


Mother's Day Macaron Box

I've just finished my birthday ones... they're the perfect gift, with a glas of bubble, a cuppa or nibbled straight from the box. The best macarons I've tasted outside Paris, hand on heart.


Organic Hand Wash

My children gave me this for Mother's Day last year. It's been the best gift as it smells divine and is such great value as it's still going strong. This one's Lime & Bay Juniper but hop onto the website for the whole range.


Grow your Own Face Oil Gift Set

Such a good idea, this. IT includes a sachet of wildflower seeds, infusion bag, bottle of oil, dropper bottle and pipette and instructions on how to grow, harvest and infuse your own plants to make a beautiful face oil.


Luxury Pure Cashmere Bed Socks

Perfect for keeping the feet cosy, these are knitted in Hawick in the Scottish Borders. They're 100% super soft cashmere and use a thick yarn, creating a loose fit that's ideal for sleeping in. There are lots more colours on the website to choose from.


Six Scented dook Salt Soaps

These dook soaps are so pure: 50% Himalayan pink salt, organic coconut oil and raw organic shea butter. I keep them in clothes drawers where they make everything smell amazing, though I do use the soaps too of course!


Cashmere Hot Water Bottle

This sustainable hot water bottle cover is 100% cashmere and seriously soft. Knitted in Scottish Border mills and the bottle itself is Fair Trade rubber. It's a beautifully crafted product. 


Harris Tweed Wash Bag

This is Harris Tweed as you've never seen it before. The colours are inspired by the Scottish landscape, a contemporary take on a classic. They're sturdy, beautifully finished and designed to last. 


Skin Saviour Night Balm

A wonderfully scented treatment that works its magic overnight, restoring, repairing and rejuvenating. It's handmade in small batches and the sleep-inducing lavender makes it a true bedtime treat. 

Moo Signature Candle

A softly scented candle which comes in a reusable heavy-weight glass with a bamboo lid. Made using a biodegradable soya wax from renewable sources, it createes an even, long-lasting burn.


Small Handcrafted Ceramic Bowls

How shall I use theee, let me count the ways... crisps, dips, nibbles, snacks, ice cream, puddings, fruit, jewellery... You can never have too many small bowls and they make the sweetest gift. These are versatile and designed to stack.


Cashmere Tartan Comfort Blanket

A 100% cashmere blanket, this has been woven at the finest Scottish cashmere mill. Beautifully soft, it's perfect on the lap for warmth or draped over furniture for decoration. It really is a thing of beauty.
