Presented in Russian Doll style, one inside the other, this quaint set of bowls won't take up much space in mum's kitchen cupboard. The flamingo and pineapple design is perfect for a quirky personality, too. Available from Fenella Smith (£55)

Spreadable gin

Who says gin has to come in a tumbler with ice and tonic? Give mum the gift of her favourite tipple on toast this Mother's Day. Actually, this tangy marmalade has been infused with gin, meaning that all the alcohol is cooked off to avoid mum getting tipsy at teatime. Goes well on a toasted teacake or scone.
