Soak Sunday x Edinburgh Gin gift set
Two classic gifts combine in this sweet gift set. Edinburgh Gin and Soak Sunday have collaborated on this limited edition set which combines a bottle of Edinburgh Gin’s aromatic rhubarb & ginger gin with a warming bottle of rhubarb & ginger bath soak ready for a pampering evening. Looking for more gin ideas? Check out our best flavoured gins review to find the best bottles, from sweet sloe gin to tangy Italian lemon.
Soak Sunday (£39)
Oliver Bonas terracotta oven dish
We love this bold and quirky oven dish. A modern twist on a classic nautical aesthetic in bold blue and white, it is handmade from terracotta in Portugal. One for Mum’s who love to host, it will brighten up any dinner party or everyday dishes and traybakes, such as lasagne or macaroni cheese.
Oliver Bonas (large £49.50, small £32.50)
The Willoughby Book Club cookery book subscription
This unique subscription is perfect for any keen foodie you’re struggling to get a gift for. The lucky recipient gets to fill in their top three favourite cuisines, along with whether they love baking. Then each month they can expect a brand new cookbook tailored to their tastes, ready to inspire some cooking. Plus, for every subscription sold, The Willoughby Book Club donates a book to Book Aid international.
Baked In cookie heart bundle
This sweet gift set is a fun Mother’s Day family activity with young children. The bundle comes with a large jar of Baked In cookie mixture, a heart-shaped cake tin and a tube of ‘twisty frosting’ ready to decorate the cookie to your heart’s content. The cookie is available in three flavours – triple chocolate, milk chocolate or oatmeal and raisin: we tested out the milk chocolate and enjoyed a super fudgy cookie with rich brown sugar flavour and crispy edges. Plus, the jar makes enough dough for one heart cookie plus eight extra cookies (we put the dough in the freezer). Get baking with the kids ready to present to Mum or Grandma.
Baked In (£19.99)
Flapjackery letterbox delivery
If you can’t be with your Mum this Mother’s Day, a box of something sweet arriving through the door is always going to be a welcome gift in your absence. Flapjackery make (unsurprisingly) top-quality flapjacks: generously sized, with chewy edges and soft centres and a rich butterscotch flavour. Customise your own box of flavours you know she’ll love (the raspberry and white chocolate was our favourite) or pick a Mother’s Day box. Check out our round up of the best brownies, cakes and more by post for more postal gifts inspiration.
Flapjackery (£35 for Mother's Day message box of eight)

Treat mum to an extra special breakfast with Panzer’s breakfast box. As well as a pack of their crunchy homemade granola and a bottle of freshly squeezed orange juice, it contains two of the deli’s famous chewy bagels, ready to be slathered with generous lashings of their luxuriously thick soft cheese and high-quality smoked salmon, plus a giant leafy lemon to squeeze over.

A lovely celebratory fizz, without the booze! This sparkling tea has ripe peach flavours, a subtle green tea grassiness and very slight bitterness which adds complexity. Serve chilled in champagne flutes or saucers. For more low and no-alcohol drinks inspiration, don't miss our review.

Nc’nean organic single malt scotch whisky
Buying for a whisky fan? This single malt, made from organic Scottish barley, has a lovely richness and depth of flavour that’s unusual for such a young spirit. It’s deliciously smooth and clean, with light citrus notes, peachy overtones, a touch of spice and a subtle sweetness which comes from having been matured first in ex-bourbon, then in ex-red wine barrels. For more, don't miss our review of the best whiskies to buy as gifts.
