Where I’d Rather Be’s vibrant Destination Collection offers an inspiring and practical way to make mum smile this March 6

Those seeking a refreshing and original alternative to the annual bunch of flowers this Mother’s Day need look no further.

Does she love to travel? Is she obsessed with city breaks? Does she pine for authentic Italian food & wine…? If you can’t afford to send your mum jetting off on holiday this mother’s day, gift the next best thing with a Where I’d Rather Be Destination Collection umbrella, featuring some of the world’s most celebrated destinations.

Crafted using world-first 360° under canopy photography designs, giving the impression of being ‘inside’ the image, these unique umbrellas make a fashionable accessory, whilst also keeping those inevitable spring showers at bay.

With a range of wraparound depictions to choose from, there’s a design to suit each individual. It may be that your mum has travelled to one of the featured locations, views it as a place of significance with lasting memories, or perhaps it’s a destination on her holiday bucket-list.

Invoke the glamour of the Italian Riviera with the Portofino design, capture the classic culture of the ‘City of Light’ with a Paris cityscape, or send mum on a sensory journey to the wondrous pyramids of Egypt. There’s even an option for Mums that have moved away from the capital, with a London themed brolly on hand to give a sentimental reminder of home.

Where I’d Rather Be also offers paradisiacal island beach, tropical jungle, alpine, desert or safari scenes (among others), so if the iconic cities and sights of the Destination Collection don’t capture her imagination, one of the many breathtaking travel-inspired panoramas are sure to bring her welcome respite on a rainy day.

Where I’d Rather Be umbrellas are available in two styles and sizes; classic hook handle and compact folding (an ideal size to fit in her handbag). Handmade, hand sewn and manufactured using the highest quality materials, the umbrellas boast a water repellent coating to ensure a quick-dry canopy. They are also highly wind resistant and durable thanks to sturdy, yet flexible fibreglass and electroplated steel frames and shafts, ensuring Mum won’t be battling with an inside-out brolly.

Retailing at £27.99 (classic) and £25.99 (folding), Where I’d Rather Be Destination Collection umbrellas make a unique, long-lasting present, sure to bring sunshine on a rainy day.
