Wondering what you can get for your Mum this Mother’s Day? From marvellous macarons to perfect pans, we’ve put together a list of fantastic foodie gifts sure to please even the most discerning of Mum’s.
Mother's Day is just around the corner and, like many others, you’re probably wondering which gift you can purchase for Mum which is both special and more unique than a bunch of flowers. Thankfully, there’s loads of foodie gifts out there which will help you to surprise even the most discerning of Mum’s. From macarons to marvellous cookware, we’ve found the perfect gifts to make her day (even more special).
Amazing afternoon tea
There are few things better than a perfectly made macaron and a cup of tea (in a china cup, of course!) While we all have grand ambitions of making our own macarons at home, sometimes life is just too short.
However, that doesn’t mean we can’t treat ourselves to a box - or three - via mail order. Macarons and More are an award-winning patisserie who have won local and national awards, including Great Taste and Observer Food Monthly Awards. They offer macaron subscriptions of 3, 6 and 12 months, which would make a perfect gift for any Mum with a sweet tooth. We can think of few things better than having twelve delicious macarons delivered to us every month!
If you want to treat your Mum to something truly unique, we can think of few more delightful things to surprise her with than a voucher for Sketch, the home of the most Instagram friendly afternoon tea in the UK. She can sip champagne on a dusky pink velvet chair and nibble on caviar ‘Egg and Soldiers’ while admiring quirky artwork by British artist David Shrigley. Don’t forget to visit the egg-shaped loo’s either - we know this sounds like a weird recommendation, but they’re famous for a reason!
The right tool for the job
If your Mum’s favourite place is the kitchen, why not treat her to a new set of pans?
Our Style range is sleek, hard wearing and as stylish as she is. Each item is made of lightweight but tough hard-anodised aluminium with Circulon's TOTAL® non-stick coating.
The inside of the pans have high-low circular grooves which, together with the non-stick coating, provide excellent food release. Best of all, you don’t need to use much oil, allowing for healthier cooking.
If she’s looking to get adventurous, there’s no better place to start with than Chinese cookery. When treated properly, a good wok will last a lifetime and allows her to cook everything from quick stir-fries to lip-smackingly good Red Braised Pork.
We’d recommend throwing in a copy of Fuchsia Dunlop’s ‘Every Grain of Rice’ too. Fuchsia Dunlop is an authority of different styles of Chinese cookery, and ‘Every Grain of Rice’ is full of easy-to-follow (and delicious) recipes. Anyone for Mapo Tofu?
