12 best Mother's Day gifts for foodies

Hyke gin

Hyke gin

This sustainable gin is made from a grape spirit, using grapes that are surplus to the requirements of the supermarket supply chain and would otherwise be wasted. Flavoured with botanicals including coriander, myrrh, juniper, cardamom and lemon zest, it’s silky smooth and clean-tasting with a juniper-led flavour and notes of citrus and cardamom. The beautiful bottle design makes it a great gift too.

Available from:
Foxhole Spirits (£32)

Amazon (£32)
Tesco, 50cl (£24)

sous chef pink and turquoise enamel trays side by side
Colour Pop enamel roasting and serving dish (26cm)

Not only do these speckled, colour pop dishes look great for serving, you can also use them on the hob and in the oven!

Buy from Sous chef (£29.50)

Frida Kahlo design water bottle


Frida Kahlo stainless steel flask

We love this eye-catching, Frida Kahlo-inspired water bottle. Made from stainless steel and double-walled vacuum technology, it will keep drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. 

Available from 
House of Disaster (£19)
Trouva (18.99)
Baltic Shop (£18.95)

floral spatula set

John Lewis & Partners Spring baking spatula set 

This set of pastel-coloured, floral design spatulas are perfect for any star bakers. The flexible silicone head makes scraping any last remaining cake mix out the bowl a doddle. 

Buy from John Lewis & Partners (£12) 
 

silver pasta maker

Marcato Atlas 150 pasta maker

Looking to splash out on something really special for a keen cook? Gift mum this classic pasta making machine, rated the favourite among our cookery team. All she needs now is a bit of know-how on making basic pasta dough and some pasta recipe inspiration - bellisimo!

Available from:
Amazon (£41)
Lakeland (£59.99)
Borough Kitchen (£55)

bottle of fizz and box

Wildlife Botanicals 

Buying for someone who is cutting back on alcohol? This robust, sparkling drink has the slightly acidic funk of wine but is ultra-low in alcohol (0.5% ABV) and calories (32 per 125ml glass) and infused with vitamins, minerals and botanicals. Serve chilled in a champagne flute for a sophisticated, low-alcohol alternative to sparkling wine or champagne.

Buy from Wildlife Botanicals (£15) 

brightly coloured oven glove

Yellow Weaver double oven glove

Add a pop of colour to mum’s kitchen with this sunshine yellow and red oven glove in pretty flower and bird print. 

Buy from Postcards Home (£30)

long tin and biscuits

Pistachio & clotted cream biscuits

Put the kettle on - these light, crumbly biscuits are studded with pistachios and an ideal sweet treat with a cup of tea. We love the gorgeous teal tin too!

Buy from Fortnum & Mason (£12.95)

giant gin goblet with gin and lemon

Giant green gin glass

Because all gin lovers need a giant gin goblet in their life! Load this with ice and serve your mum one of our gin & tonic recipes

Buy from Oliver Bonas (£15)

floral bamboo coffee cup

Reusable Bamboo Cup in Green Floral Print

Pretty, practical and sustainable, a patterned reusable coffee cup makes a great gift. We love this floral design one, made from ethically sourced bamboo (which is recyclable at the end of its life), with a silicone band to protect the hand from heat. 

Buy from Oxfam (£7.99)

coral mug

Paula coral mug

This beautiful, coral-coloured, stoneware mug has a seriously huggable shape. It’s also dishwasher and microwave-friendly – hello, hot chocolates and mug cakes! 

Buy from Beaumonde (£9.50)

Creighton's chocolate bars

Creighton's chocolate bars

The fun designs on Creightons’ chocolate bars make them great gifts. We love their ‘Carnabee Street’ milk chocolate bar with honeycomb pieces and sugar flowers and the ‘Blooming Lovely’ white chocolate & strawberry bar, studded with meringue.

Available from Creighton’s Chocolaterie (£4.75)
