Timeless meets contemporary in this eye-catching platter, handcrafted at Japan’s Kaneko Kohyo pottery. It’s sized for Sunday lunch sides, a small joint or happy pile of sweet things (such as merginues or macarons). We love the subtly glazed scalloped edges – the studio’s signature shape. Rinka large oval serving platter available from Abask (£52).
These wonderful chocolate coated hazelnuts by French brand Le Chocolate de Francais are the perfect TV snack treat, and the packaging is so cheering we can’t stop looking at it! Part of Selfridge’s Project Earth, the product is both organic and made in France. Available from Selfridges (£16.99).
If your Mum likes a cocktail but can’t be faffing with making one, this pear and white tea fizz from Black Lines is IDEAL. Sometimes bottled cocktails can be a little too sweat, syrupy and reminiscent of the hangover to come. Not so with this. It’s subtle, quaffable, and fancy enough to make a stellar gift. Available from Black Lines (£19).
Edible art: six hand-painted macarons from London’s Emma Dodi Cakes with a light chocolate filling. Chewy (in the good way), not too sweet and with a crisp bite, these would make an exquisite gift. Available from Emma Dodi Cakes (£32 for 6).
Pistachio lovers are a large contingent, and this hamper from Eataly ticks all the boxes this Mother’s Day. Alongside pistachio cream – the oozing, Nutella-like paste of ground pistachios, so good you can eat it out the jar as is – the hamper features truffles, chocolate, cantucci, and of course, some prosecco to pop on Sunday… Available from Eataly (£46.60).
Oranj’s spring hamper features a delicious ‘pet nat’ sparkling rosé that is the ideal celebration drink. Pet nat is a process in which wine grapes are pressed and leaved to brew in tanks before finishing their fermentation in the bottle. The result is a wine that is unfiltered and has no added sulphites, and is a juicy, lively expression of the grape. Also included in Oranj’s gift package is a tin of the most famous green olive of all, Perello, a bar of tart and punchy raspberry and pink peppercorn chocolate and sweet smelling incense to seal the deal. Available from Oranj (£39).
Baked by Steph’s Mother’s Day collection includes everything from your own personalised message in biscuit letters, to an afternoon tea set or bottle of gin with flowers. The letterbox cookies are flavoured with vanilla and the icing adds a hit of sweetness and a LOT of colour. Available from Baked by Steph (£10.95).
The new frying pan from HexClad (who count Oprah among their fans) uses clever hybrid technology to sandwich non-stick materials between stainless steel, in a laser etched hexagon design. The combination of the two materials makes for an impressive pan which possesses durability from the steel but with all the convenience of non stick – you can even use metal utensils with the pan. Weighty and sleek to the touch, these pans excel in cooking eggs, meat, or anything you’d normally cook in your non-stick frying pan – and they boast an impressively even temperature with the ability to brown meat or vegetables very fast. A generous gift for a mother figure who loves to be in the kitchen. Available from Hexclad from (£89).
Bake Mum something delicious!
If money is tight, one of the best gifts (if you asks us) is the time and effort put in to making something homemade. Bake your mother something as lovely as she is – this rhubarb and custard brioche loaf is one of our favourites – or choose from our collection of Mother’s Day recipes.
If your Mum would love an impactful cake stand for displaying and/or piling up one of our stunning bakes, plump for this one from Sous Chef (yes, the website sells a lot more than ingredients). The stand is made from hand-pressed jadeite glass and available in three sizes 6in, 10in, and 12in. Available from Sous Chef (from £37.50).
Pump Street chocolate never ceases to impress us, and their range for Mother’s Day includes a selection of four mini bars of their Madagascan milk chocolate, fruity and full of flavour. Then there’s our undeniable favourite: the croissant bar, which takes the actual croissants baked at Pump Street Bakery and blends them into the base chocolate. The final bar incorporates crisp, browned flakes of croissant for a sensory overload that’s buttery and comforting. And for a generous gift box, their Mother’s Day box comes wrapped in beautiful raspberry pink and features 4 of their most popular bars (the rye crumb is next level). Available from Pump Street Chocolate (from £10.50).
Honey & Co Mother’s Day box of treats
Honey & Co have assembled a selection of treats including edible delights such as seasonal marmalade, Baharat roasted cashew and pistachio nuts, Bare Bones chocolate, lemon cookies, a St. Eval candle, Marrakech Gin and salt roasted corn nuts. Available from Honey & Co, £90.
