Presents for food & drink loving mums
Heads up, it’s Mother’s Day on Sunday 14th March 2021 and we have picked a few gifts that we are thinking about gifting to our mums.
Cocktails by Post from Darkbear
Three popular cocktails, a Pornstar Martini, Espresso Martini and Mojito, delivered by post nationwide. Cocktails cannot be swapped for any others. Vegan-friendly.
Artisan chocolates from Sugarsnap
The Halen Môn Caramel Valentine’s hearts were a popular choice so Sugarsnap has created a Spring coloured pastel version for Mother’s Day. You can pre-order them now to be dispatched w/c 7th March. 6s, 12s or 18s available.
We tried some exquisite wines from Independent Wine at Christmas (Click here to see them) and they have a couple of ideas for Mother’s Day gifting this year. First up are virtual wine tasting sessions. The sessions are taking place just before Mother’s Day weekend – the 11th and 12th March 2021 – and focus on red wines from Northern Italy. Thursday’s session will for Pinot Noir from the Dolomite Alps, while Friday will be dedicated to the noble red wines of Piedmont. Tickets cost £99 per household. For more information please see Independent Wine’s website.
Or you could buy some premium Italian wine and matching Truffles by Iain Burnett, the Highland Chocolatier: https://www.independent.wine/product-category/wine-chocolate-gift-sets/.
They also offer free gift wrapping and can add a greeting card too.
Remind your mum every day that you are their favourite child with a photo of your face! Made from soft poly-cotton, available in three sizes and a choice of colours. Just make sure to upload a clear picture of the face of choice (it doesn’t have to be yours).
Cheese by post with Butlers Cheese

Mon Dessert Macaron Baking Kit
Mon Dessert’s Mother’s Day bundles come with simple recipe guides, video tutorials, ingredients and special tools, which can all be used to create some of the world’s most famously difficult desserts while learning professional-level pâtissier techniques.
With three bundles to choose from, each arriving with a personalised card, housed in a beautiful (and reusable) presentation box complete with a bow, we surely can’t go wrong this year.

Includes the Madeline kit with enough pre-weighed ingredients to make nine and the Handmade Chocolate kit comes with a reusable mould and much, much more.
- Mother’s Day Chef Pâtissier Bundle (£70)
Includes the highly popular Crème brûlée kit, arriving with all the know-how and equipment necessary to create restaurant-quality crème brûlées (including a blow torch and ramekins!) which can even be adapted for vegans. It also incorporates the Baked Alaska kit with enough ingredients to make five mouth-watering mini-Alaskas.
- Mother’s Day Macaron Bundle (£100)
Their flagship Macarons caught the attention of Fortnum & Mason and Harrods and thus take pride of place with this specially curated Macaron bundle – divine. Including their Chocolat Noir & Gold Dusted Macaron kit, Raspberry & Rose and Lemon Macaron kit. Macarons can also be made vegan!
