Pure inspiration for Mother’s Day gifts

It’s a tough job being a mum. One of the hardest jobs in the world, they often say. And one that is not rewarded often enough.

But with Mother’s Day coming up on 13 May, there are no excuses not to show your mother or wife how much you appreciate her, by treating her to something special.

Pure Art, on South Church Street, is positively overflowing with ideal gifts items for mums in every size, shape and colour imaginable.

Whether it’s an original piece of art she can decorate her home with, some local handicrafts or island style home wares, you can find it in one of the rooms in this authentic Caymanian cottage.

Younger members of the family who only have a few dollars to spend, will find plenty within their budget: earrings, necklaces, bracelets and pendants made from conch shell, Caymanite, black coral or crystal, local condiments for the kitchen, etched glassware or table decorations will not break the bank in most cases.

Can’t decide on a single item? Why not put together a gift basket with a variety of sea-themed trinkets, tiny watercolours and home-made toiletries.

New this year, the Beatriz Ball collection of Mexican metalware is proving hugely popular: serving bowls, platters and utensils will brighten up any table setting.

Made by hand, one at a time, from molten aluminium and polished to a high sheen, these items never dull or tarnish and can be seamlessly transferred from fridge to oven to table.

For a truly one of a kind gift, however, consider some local artwork. Mark Frazer has a particularly distinctive collection of sculptures of cyclists and surfers made from copper wire as well as a horse and siren collection in ceramics; Luelan Bodden’s sculpture of a sailfish from conch shell is an equally unique piece and the Spottie collection of sea and land creatures carved from tropical cedar are fun and different.

To help you spoil mum this Mother’s Day, Pure Art is offering specials on all paintings priced over $100 and complimentary gift wrapping on all items.
