What better way to say ‘I love you’ this Mother’s Day than with ALL food and drink?
Whether you’re looking for kitchen staples for an eco-friendly warrior, the best biscuits and brownies for a foodie lover or something stronger for a mom who definitely deserves to put her feet up. Jenna Farmer shares some of her favourites...
ECO-FRIENDLY KITCHEN ESSENTIALS
Stylish sustainable gifts that any mother would love.
CHOPPING BOARDS BY HUGO’S WORKSHOP
A good chopping board will last a lifetime so why not make your mum’s day with a personalised one by Hugo’s workshops. Made from upcycled oak kitchen worktops, you can add a personal engraved message to the board (in a range of fonts) or even get your little one to handwrite their message on it instead.
Chopping Boards: from £30.00 and available online
KIND SHOPPING BAGS
Forget a bag-for-life, these gorgeous reusable shopping bags will brighten up the weekly shop no end. Made from six used plastic bottles and 100% recycled materials, these bags are available in a range of prints (we love the bold papaya and banana themes!) and are a great alternative to regular bags. The thick wide straps, strong stitching and vast capacity makes them perfect for those who hate being weighed down by regular bags and the small pouch means they can be easily packed in your handbag.
Kind Shopping bags £10.00, www.kindbag.co
LEAKPROOF STEEL VACUUM FLASK/WATER BOTTLE
These jazzy water bottles are perfect for a mom who needs to remember to drink more water! Made of stainless steel, this flask can keep your cold drinks chilled for 24 hours and hot drinks hot for up to 12 hours (the perfect solution to luke warm cup of teas that most new mom’s face!)
ION8 Leakproof Steel Vacuum Flask (500ml), £19.99, and available online
‘MUM’ LETTERBOX COOKIES
What could be a better gift than these biscuits landing on your mat? These stunning, bright biscuits are handmade and a great way to make your mum feel special if you can’t be there in person to deliver a mother’s day gift.
‘Mum’ cookies, £26.00 Available online from Baked by Steph
CHOCOLATE ORANGE BROWNIES
If biscuits aren’t your thing, how about brownies? Or a box of six to be in fact. These gooey handmade brownies are made with Terry’s Chocolate Orange and make the perfect gift for any chocoholic.
Luxe Box of Chocolate Orange Brownies: £15.00, Bumble and Goose
HEALTH AND WELLNESS LETTERBOX HAMPER
We love the idea of Letterbox Hampers- they create small, letter-box friendly (so no waiting in for the postman!) hampers full of luxury produce from across Britain. Their health and wellness hamper is perfect for moms on a health kick or those who have dietary restrictions: with no refined sugar (but still delicious cookies) vegan cookies to organic vegan chocolate and the perfect tea blend from Cornwall; it’s a great way of celebrating the amazing produce made in the UK and treating someone you love.
Health and Wellness Letterbox Hamper: £25.95, Letterbox Hampers
MERMAID PINK GIN
We love everything about this gin. First, let’s talk about the gorgeously decadent pink hued glass bottle which would surely take the prime spot on any kitchen counter or drink’s cabinet. But what’s inside is equally as special. We couldn’t feel further away from it right now but this feels like the perfect summer drink on first sip. With refreshing, fruity notes of strawberry and lemon, it’s perfect alone with ice or paired with a simple tonic. We could all do with some dutch courage right now, so why not give your mother the taste of summer this mother’s day?
Mermaid Pink Gin, £35.89 ,Isle of Wight Distillery
TEAPIGS PICK AND MIX COLLECTION
If your mom’s idea of relaxation is putting the kettle on, then treat her to her own mix of herbal teas that you’ll know she’ll love. You can build your own selection of a range of herbal teas to contain either 12 mini packs (each containing 2 tea temples) or 6 larger packs (of 15 tea temples)
Tea Pick n Mix , £17.99, Teapigs
