More Than Just A Mum

From valuable life lessons to inspirational words of wisdom, our mothers are our most significant role models. Discover what team HOH have learnt from their mums and the gifts they’ll be treating them to this Mother’s Day.

Dana Dallal, Fashion Production Coordinator

Dana Dallal and Mum

My Mum taught me to never covet other people’s situations or their belongings. I don’t know how she did it, but she instilled a great deal of self-confidence and self-worth in me. She is a wise lady.

What I’ll be treating her to:

A set of PALMERAL bath sheets and a large luffa so she can stay glamourous at bath time. Palmeral Towel Gift Set

Steve Corcoran, Store Supervisor

Steve Corcoran and Mum

The most important thing my Mum has taught me is to be self-aware; to know myself, my strengths, capabilities and quirks and to embrace them.

What I’ll be treating her to:

This year I will be buying my Mum a gorgeous PEONEDEN Velvet Cushion as she loved the scarf that I got her last year in the same print. PEONEDEN Large Velvet Cushion - Midnight

Harriet Ball, Assistant Buyer – Home Accessories

Harriet Ball and Mum

There’s so much I’ve learnt from my Mum, but the most important things are the importance of family and to be supportive and nurturing of others.

What I’ll be treating her to:

My mum loves to garden and is pretty house proud, so she’ll love one of the brightly coloured Kew Gardens plant pots with a Maiden Hair fern.

My mum has shown me her strength and determination. She achieves whatever she sets her mind to, even fulfilling her life-long ambition to sing in the Royal Albert Hall. She inspires me every day to experience new things.

What I’ll be treating her to:

Knowing her love of nature, my Mum would love a FLIGHTS OF FANCY Cushion for her bed, as her bedroom is decorated in similar cool colours.

Lewis Spaul, Customer Services Manager

lewis and mum

She taught me how to have a good work ethic and positive attitude. No matter what happens, get up and dust yourself off!

What I’ll be treating her to:

My Mum has always had an eclectic wardrobe, and I know she’s had her eye on the NARCISSA print Ivy dress. I can just see her wearing it for summer.
