For Mothers Day the Funk Tart Mug and Biscuit Tin Gift Set is sure to make her smile, the storage tin is empty, so you can either present the mug inside the tin, or fill it with her favorite cookies for that extra special treat, after all every Mum deserves time to put her feet up and enjoy her tea and biscuits.

The highly glazed bone china mug is printed with a picture of Mum with a bouquet of flowers, wearing a sash over her shoulder that says “Ms Perfect” underneath the image of Mum are the words, “She’s Great”.¬† Mum is wearing a badge that says “best mate” and she’s holding a glass of champagne to celebrate.

Father and Daughter new baby sculpture at TAOS gifts
Daddy's Girl


That’s it, that’s the only way we can quickly describe the beautiful,¬† emotional collection from More Than Words from the heart figures by Arora Design.

They really are beautiful sculptures, capturing those magical moments we share with those we truly love.

The most important and profound relationships in our lives caught in one moment, in  subtle but beautiful sculptures.

A little girl giving her Mother a bunch of flowers, with a hug and a kiss, a magical moment between Mother and Daughter.

A new Father proudly holding his little baby Girl above him playfully, you can almost hear the baby chuckle as the sculpture takes you back to those precious early days.

A Mother, carries her young baby in her arms while she gazes as the babies face, you can almost imagine her singing in this stunning Precious Gift sculpture.

Proud new Parents sit together as they cradle their newborn in awe in the New Baby Joy sculpture.

Loving Moment, perfectly describes the sculpture of a Mother and her Young Daughter, walking arm in arm as they chat and laugh together, such simple moments that bring such treasured memories.

My Sister is a wonderful sculpture of young Sister’s hugging, a fleeting moment, perfectly captured forever.

If you want to say “I Love You“,¬† “I’m Thinking of You” or “Thank You”, ¬†More than Words…. From the Heart has a sculpture that says it beautifully, and eternally.

More than words, Arora Design, TAOS gifts, emotive sculpture
