Like Anniversary’s and Valentine’s Day, it’s a terrible crime to forget Mother’s Day and comes with a life time sentence from that point onwards as the ‘uncaring child’. This is made even worse when your sibling has shown up unexpected with flowers, chocolates and taken your lovely mum out for afternoon tea.
You shouldn’t buy your Mum a thoughtful present this Sunday so you look like the most thoughtful child (although it is a good ulterior motive), you should get her a gift to say ‘Thanks Mum, for all those times you’ve bailed me out, mended my trousers and brought me a cup of tea after accidentally falling asleep on the sofa at 3 in the morning and waking up with cramp’.
And we’ve got something we think she’ll love, posh Italian chocolates, artisan cheese hampers and flowering tea blooms. You can see lots more ideas in our Gift Section if your Mum is the type who prefers gourmet fudge or indulgent chocolate brownies.
Possibly the prettiest chocolates we’ve ever seen, this collection of delicate and fresh spring infusions is a real indulgence. Flavours include camomile, rose and jasmine and are coated in the finest Ecuadorian chocolate. You can treat your Mum here and start at £9 for a box of 9.
Not all Mum’s have sweet teeth and this hamper from the Northumberland Cheese Co is a great alternative to biscuits and chocolates. Including a Nettle, Elson and Garlic cheese as well as oat cakes and an apron you can get it here for only £25
Mum’s love tea (especially brought to them in bed) and we think this beautiful Flowering Tea Bloom Gift Set is a fantastic and slightly unusual present this Mother’s Day. This gift set comes complete with a glass tea pot so you can see the pretty flowers plus two tea bowls and a box of six different blooms. The perfect gift to help your mum relax and unwind, you can get it from here.
If you really want to let your mum know how you feel, in the sweetest possible way, these iced biscuits from Biscuit Village are the perfect present. Coming in large tins for £24.99 or smaller Biscuit Cards for £5.99 the cute patterns are intricately iced onto delicious 100% cocoa biscuits. So much tastier than a bunch of flowers. You can get them here.
And lastly we think you can’t go wrong with the classics and these Raspberry and Rose Truffles are the essence of the English garden and are coated in a rich layer of dark chocolate before being beautifully presented. You can get them here for only £8.95.
