Mother’s Day Gift Guide
It’s just about the time of the year when you realise Mother’s Day is right round the corner and you haven’t got a clue what to get your Mum. This year it may be even harder to get the perfect gift for your Mother – who knows what their lockdown purchases may have been…
What we do know is that Mums deserve to be spoiled on this special day. We’ve got you covered with our Mother’s Day Gift Guide!
Mum’s the Word
Firstly, when is Mother’s Day? This year it falls on Sunday 14th March (thank us later!). Although we mostly celebrate our own Mums on this day, motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of motherhood in society are also appreciated on Mother’s Day. So if you know a great Mother, why not spoil them with a gift too? We’re sure it’ll get you some brownie points!
Whilst more recently the term “Mother’s Day” is associated with American ways, the gratitude towards Motherly love has been a custom in Britain as far back as the Middle Ages. Back in the day, sons and daughters all over the country would spend the fourth Sunday of Lent travelling home to see their Mums and wish them a happy Mother’s Day, creating the long-standing tradition of Mothering Sunday. Although we might not be able to visit our favourite Motherly figures this year, let them know you’re thankful with one of these gorgeous, organic gifts…
Ginning the Gift Giving
If you know a Mum who is a fan of a little (or a big) gin and tonic, this gin gift set could be for you. This year we’ve introduced the Tinkture Rose Gin Gift Box, offering Tinkture’s signature Rose Gin alongside Twelve Below’s Classic Premium Tonic Water for the perfect Mothering Sunday afternoon tipple. What’s more, this neat little bundle also contains Booja Booja’s Fine de Champagne Organic Truffles for a true touch of luxury.
Tinkture’s Gin is just like the English Rose; clean, delicate and complex. A classic yet premium tonic is the best accomplice to create a traditional gin cocktail that is packed full of citrus tones and juniper flavours.
Breakfast in Bed
With Mums working so hard all year round to do their best for us, treating them to breakfast in bed on a Sunday morning is the perfect way to say thanks. This year you may have to get Dad’s help with the actual cooking, but we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible with our Breakfast in Bed Bundle full of organic products.
Send your Mother a fresh Baker Tom’s sourdough loaf, Ireland’s finest smoked salmon, Sussex Slipcote sheep milk cheese and an organic avocado for a delicious breakfast ensemble, using the best ethically produced food. We’re sure there’ll be enough for Dad too!
Life’s a Box of Chocolates!
This year we’ve really upped our chocolate box selection, largely thanks to Booja Booja. Their organic, vegan and dairy free chocolate truffles are the epitome of luxury and definitely Mum worthy. We like to think we’ve catered for all tastes, with mixed selection boxes to champagne, salted caramel and hazelnut varieties.
Gourmet sweet treat producers Seed & Bean also offer delightful Mother’s Day chocolate gifts. Their range of English Botanically inspired wild flavoured chocolate bars are all handmade in England with only the finest organic ingredients. Organic milk, dark or white chocolate, there really is a something for every Mum!
Talking of versatility… nothing says inclusivity like wine! Whether your Mother’s a red, white, rosé or bubbly lover, treat her to a wine delivery with our selection of organic wine. Our sommelier, Marie, suggests the following bottles for any Mother’s Day celebrations:
- Red Wine – Chateau de La Marjoliere Cahors Malbec
“A fine Cahors made from organic Malbec grapes and aged in bottle before release to give a complex, rich and smooth style that has dark berry and earthy flavours.”
- White Wine – Signos De Origen La Vinilla
“With toasted almond flavours from 6-month aging in oak, robust and creamy with a backbone of acidity, this well-balanced Chardonnay blend will accompany all poultry perfectly, in addition to richer fish dishes.”
- Rosé Wine – Chateau Leoube Cote de Provence Rose
“Floral and peachy wine with maritime freshness thanks to its coastal location in Provence. The winemaker recommends this as a wine for all seasons, the great versatility suiting dinner parties and celebrations.”
- Bubbly – Giol Prosecco Frizzante Spago
“There's something really special about drinking a bottle of fizz with supper and this easy-going Prosecco is a winner with a herb risotto or spinach and ricotta pancakes. Great fun!”
