Whether it’s colour, comfort, or a fantastic scent you want to bring into your mother’s home, Elm will make art out of your mother’s living room.

Urban Jungle

Urban Jungle

This one’s as much of a treat for you as much as it is your mother. If you’ve never visited Urban Jungle, prepare yourself for Norwich’s own exotic corner of fantastic fauna and mesmerising flowers.

The Jade Tree

Why not get your mother’s day gift from a shop that sits in the most magical corner of Norwich?

Twigs with delicate flowers on white background

Ah, the old classic. But not without reason. We celebrate Mother’s Day in spring as a reminder of the life they gave us. So it follows that flowers are the best symbol for Mother’s Day. Just like the perfect book, the right bouquet is also a sign of really knowing your mum. We couldn’t pick one florist that we really like, they’re probably all very busy this week anyway! In a pinch, Margaret Emms Florist, Libby Ferris Flowers and Elizabeths the Florist have served us well for amazing quality flowers.

That’s our list of wonderful Mother’s Day gifts that you can find right here, right now in Norwich.
