Why not treat mum to something a bit different this year?

Whilst you may not be able to take your mum out to a fancy meal this time around, you can still make sure to give her the indulgent day we all know she deserves.

If she’s a bit of a foodie and loves to be spoilt, take a look at how you can bring some love and luxury to your mum’s doorstep this Mother’s Day…

Who doesn’t love a good roast? It’s time to treat her to the best.

Beef Wellington - a thing of beauty

Farmison & Co's free-range Mother’s Day roast chicken gift box is the perfect centrepiece for the evening. The recently awarded Online Butcher of the Year has created this luxurious, chef-prepared box in collaboration with The Botanist - all so that mum can enjoy an Islay Dry Gin alongside her citrus and coriander infused chicken.

Best paired alongside her favourite vegetables, this lavish home-delivery is the perfect way to show your mum a little appreciation this Mother’s Day.

Why not try a wellington?...

Is there anything better than rich flavours and flakey pastry? We think not. Another delicious option for a Mother’s Day meal is a classic beef wellington - think melt in the mouth, tender meat wrapped in an all-butter puff pastry.

Get Cheesy…

Even if you’ve treated her to a sumptuous main meal - let’s face it - there’s always room for cheese, right? Why not try The Fine Cheese Co.’s collection of cheddars (£24) (classic, smoked and goat’s milk) - the package comes with a thick onion chutney and light wheat rounds, making it any cheese lovers delight!

Choose chocolate…

Is it even a Mother’s Day without a selection box of chocolates? Milk chocolate never fails to go down a treat, especially when you opt for the fancier, finer kind. For a high-end selection, we recommend the Milk Chocolate Selection Box from Fortnum & Mason (£16.95).

If the tipple of dry gin from the roast chicken gift box isn’t enough (no judging), Fortnum & Mason also have plenty of boozy chocolate goodies available too, including their delicious pink marc de champagne truffles.

Time for tea…

If there’s one thing that always proves to be a constant, even at times like these, it’s the reliable cuppa.

Let your mum know she’s ‘tea-riffic’ with some delicious herbal teas. For a wide selection of leaves and flavours, we suggest opting for the Tea Discoveries Treasured Blends (£20) from Whittards. Beautifully designed, they’ve combined their six best-loved loose leaf teas to offer the perfect gift for those mums who love a good self-care moment.

If she’s a lover of tea parties, then why not go all out and send her some tea party decorations from Ginger Ray so that you can both enjoy a virtual tea tasting together, Alice and Wonderland style?

Kick back with a candle…

Finally, after all that food, you’ll want to ensure that mum winds down in the right way. For the ultimate cosy, indulgent evening set the mood with a luxury fragrance: we suggest something like Neom's 'Complete Bliss' (£32) scented candle as an ultimate relaxation scent. Investing in a candle with calming notes and aromas will fill your mum’s room with a peaceful presence.
