World's Best Mum...Like Ever! [Mother's Day 2017]

Sunday's are a day for relaxing and treating yourself to some downtime right? Well not on Sunday 26th March! Yep, it's Mother's day again, so instead of the typical card and flowers why not treat Mum to something a little bit special. Here at Maia we have packed our store full of goodies, too many goodies actually, and this is a few of the wonderful gifts we have to offer those amazing Mum's out there!

World's Best Mum!

We all think our Mum's the best in the world, and to us she really is, so why not tell her with an item from our 'World's Best Mum' collection.

Thinking of treating mum to an afternoon tea but dread the idea of battling the crowds for scones and jam? Well, why not bring afternoon tea to your home! With our Amazing Mum Milk Jug, World's Best Mum Mug and World's Best Mum Ceramic Tray you can create your own special afternoon tea and spend some quality time together all in the comfort of your home.

Here at Maia we believe it's the little things that make all the difference. Just by adding a wee something to your main gift shows an extra thought has gone into making that person feel special. You could pick something like the cute chrome KeyringCompact Mirror or how about a practical  Microfiber Screen Cleaning Cloth crowning her as the world's best mum. Not that mum will be doing any cleaning that day right!!

For Laughs!

We can't forget our famous Lisa Donati mugs which are sure to give Mum a wee laugh, especially these little beautys Geez Peace Mug |  'Mazin Mammy Mug'. Not forgetting dear old Gran there's a mug for her too... Ma Wee Gran Mug.


I'm sure your Mum wouldn't say no to a wee glass after all the hard-work she does looking after you, so why not give her a wine glass that sum's up her day with our 'Small Glass Mum's Glass' Wine Glass  which is sure to give her laugh (no matter how true it is!).

On Trend Mumma

If your Mum's always keeping up with the latest trends why not treat her to our 'Starry Nights Scarf'  . It's not only a beautiful scarf that's been a winner in-store, star constellations are a huge trend this year and so she'll be kept bang up-to-date! The 'Silk Feathers Scarf' pictured below is also a great popular option.

If your Mum's always keeping up with the latest trends why not treat her to our stunning in trend 'Be Awesome Cushion' as well as our 'Tea Time Me Time' Tea Set, allowing Mum to truly relax in style. Monochrome with a touch of gold sparkle is another trend that she'll love that's big this year. A personal favourite is this tea-box, a fab trendy way to keep all your favourite tea-bags organised, assuming Mum likes tea of course!

Quality Fragranced Oil Candles

Simple yet heavenly scented Candles all featuring a special message to Mum's, Gran's and Nana's make a fab gift, bringing the finest fragranced oils into the home.

Melt Her Heart

Mother Wish Bottle
Now we all know how sentimental Mum's can be and with our beautiful 'Country chic Me & Mum Frame' there's no way Mum will be able to hold back her tears if you pop a photo of a cherished memory inside (you'll get brownie points for that too!).

We thought it would be nice to give our Mums their own 'Message in a Bottle', especially as we often see our Mums as our personal guardian angel. This beautifully painted angel wing wish bottle has a wee scroll for you to write your own memory, poem or message in a bottle.

Calling all love birds! It's that time of year again where the sun shines a little brighter, the birds sing a little sweeter and you're overwhelmed with love for that special someone. Sure they can be a pain in the ass at times but isn't that what love is?! So go on and surprise your cherished one with something a little different this Valentine's Day. Here at Maia we have hand-picked the sweetest (and sometimes funniest) gifts that we believe will go down a treat this February 14th.

For your Juliet:

Maia is filled with cute and sentimental gifts so you can't really go wrong in our little gem of a store however getting it right can be hard so we thought we'd highlight a few of our favourites just for you lucky customers! Why not go traditional this valentine's day with our range of 'Beemine Candle Sets'. Fill the air with the smell of sweet floral roses, all with the knowledge that 3% of the profits from Beemine go to conserving the bee population. Now that's sharing your love with the world! Speaking of rose's we have a wonderful collection of real flower jewellery, yes real flowers! Nothing says your undying love to that special someone than our “Long Stem Rose Necklace”, a miniature rose placed in resin to ensure it remains as perfect as the day you got it. Now roses are romantic and all but can be slightly outdated for the modern woman so why not present her with a Katie Loxton 'Love Love Love'Heringbone scarf which will be a sweet reminder all year round of how much you really value her. Love comes in all shapes and sizes and that means sometimes the smallest gifts can have the most meaning and that's true for our “Love Wish Bottle” which allows you to write a message to your sweetheart this valentine's making it completely unique and heartfelt (and gives you bonus points with the Miss!).

For the Romeos:

Yes, even men like being reminded how loved they are and what better time to tell them than valentines. So on valentine's morning why not serve him his morning cup of coffee in one of  our best selling Lisa Donati Mugs. You can select from the loving“  Partner in Crime” to the more tongue in cheek “Fannybaws” mug (cause after all he is your little fannybaws). Sometimes simple is best, so why not simply say it with this “Together is my favourite place” cushion, will make perfect edition to the living room or bedroom (keep it clean people!). Now valentine's day usually features cuddly toys however this year we're giving it a superhero touch our range of Itty Bittys, especially our 'Yoda Itty Bitty' because after all your love for him really is out of this world. Now it wouldn't be valentine's at Maia without a wee bit of humour which leads us to our Hot Stuff Grow Own Chilli's” for your own hot stuff of a man (well he was when he had hair at least..).Valentine's Day (where they have to just suck it up and accept your declaration of love no matter how cheesy it is!).

 Party at Singleton

Valentine's day isn't just for the couples, its a day to love yourself and treat yourself to something special regardless if you're a single Pringle! So get the girl's around to enjoy a night of movies and drinks with the guest appearance of our Drinking Buddies Drink Markers, now that's our kinda guy! We get that everybody is treating their significant others however whose more significant than yourself! So go ahead and treat yourself to something a little different this valentines day with our selection of funky lamps such as our Orgiami Dinosaur Lamp, a sure way to brighten up your day. Valentine's can also be a day of reflection for what you really want in life so why not take that step towards self discovery with our “52 Lists of Happiness” to help bring the focus back to you cause in the words of RuPual...”If you can't love yourself how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?!”
