10 best Mother's Day gifts
10 best Mother's Day gifts
1/10 Flower Handbag Mirror
Your mum will never lose this bright embroidered floral mirror in her handbag. It comes in a pouch that can have a message sewn on front and back, and if pink’s not her thing, it also comes in cream. £8, notonthehighstreet.com
2/10 Betty’s Mother’s Day Cake
Put the kettle on, dust off the china and serve your mum a slice (or two) of this light Genoese sponge cake filled with buttercream and raspberry preserve. Delicately hand-decorated with spring daisies and a hand-piped inscription, it’s almost too good to cut. Almost. £12.95, bettys.co.uk
3/10 The Letter Room Birch Bark Vase
This is a versatile personalised pressie; it works as a candle holder or vase and comes with a glass jar which fits tea lights or some flowers, whatever takes her fancy. And because it’s made from untreated wood, no two are the same. £12.95, theletteroom.com
4/10 Lakeland Springtime Bouquet
We know flowers are not the most original gift, but a good bouquet is fail-safe for a reason. This springtime bunch of vibrant tulips and ranunculi, complemented by subtler pastel roses and eucalyptus foliage, is very pretty and lasts ages. £39.99, lakeland.co.uk
5/10 Omorovicza Blissful Frankincense Oil
If you can’t stretch to a pamper break, this luxurious body oil from the skin care brand specialising in natural ingredients is a good bet. It leaves skin feeling super-smooth and a whiff of the heady frankincense scent will makes her feel she’s in a top-notch spa. £49, omorovicza.co.uk
6/10 OXO Good Grips Cookie Press
Mums on the baking bandwagon who prefer a practical pressie will like this clever tool that helps create batches of favourite biscuits. It comes with 12 decorative stainless steel discs to produce perfectly uniform cookies that will rival any shop bought treats. Mary Berry, eat your heart out. £25, oxouk.com
7/10 Afternoon Tea at The Goring
The Goring scooped the Tea Guild’s prestigious award last year. Taking your mum here will win you some serious brownie points. It’s traditional, but that’s part of its charm. Expect grand décor, attentive service and a second-to-none offering of tea and goodies. £39.50 per person, thegoring.com
8/10 Champagne JacquarT Mosaique Rosé
Toast your mum with some bubbly. Try this is stand-out champagne – fresh and vibrant, yet elegant and round. With hints of wild strawberry and cherry, it conjures up summer in a glass and comes in a suitably smart gift box. £30, greatwesternwine.co.uk
9/10 Prestat Rose Violet Jewel Box
Prestat is the Queen’s official chocolatier, so you won’t be surprised to learn that its chocolates are quite a few notches above average. These British classic crèmes of rose and violet, covered in dark chocolate, were the sweet treats of choice for London’s debutantes of the 1950s. £11.50, liberty.co.uk
10/10 Ockenden Manor Spa Break
If there are two things that most mums love, it’s more time with their offspring and more time to relax. So why not kill two birds with one stone with this spa break, which includes dinner, bed and breakfast in this characterful Sussex hotel with Michelin-starred restaurant and £25 towards a treatment in the spa. From £143 per person, hshotels.co.uk
Betty’s Mother’s Day Cake not only looks great, but it’s delicious and reasonably priced too. For mums who prefer to do their own baking, OXO Good Grips Cookie Press is fun new tool. For a good value, versatile pressie, the Letteroom's birch bark vase or candle holder is a gift she'll keep for years.
