The best food and drink gifts for Mother's Day

For Mother's Day 2018, allow us to suggest that you spoil your mum rotten with our selection of this year's most fabulous food and drink-related gifts.

From treat-filled hampers and stylish kitchenware to personalised chocolates and gourmet experiences to enjoy together (bonus), there's a thoughtful present here waiting with which to show your mum how much she means to you. 

1. Chapel Down English sparkling rosé

£132 for a case of six, Marks and Spencer

Chapel Down English sparkling rosé 

Mother's Day calls for fizz. This year, instead of prosecco or champagne, present her with an English sparkling rosé. These petal-pink bubbles have a crisp finish, aromas of strawberries and floral notes, and are from the Chapel Down winery in Sussex. If six bottles isn't quite enough of a treat, you could even visit Chapel Down itself with her for a vineyard tour, tutored wine tasting and a three course lunch for two (£120, Virgin Experience Days). 

2. Le Creuset set of 6 rainbow egg cups

£40.50, Debenhams

If she's already lucky enough to be in possession of an iconic Le Creuset casserole dish (we like the classic signature dish in volcanic orange, £170.10 at Debenhams) - is she not also in need of this glorious rainbow of stoneware egg cups to brighten up her eggs in the morning?

3. Giant tin of personalised pâtisserie chocolates

£65, Biscuiteers

Chocolate loving mothers will delight in these beautifully presented handmade personalised chocolates from Biscuiteers, who have just published a wonderful book (which would make for an excellent accompanying gift, if you really want to spoil her). You can pre-order a copy of The Biscuiteers Book of Iced Gifts for you and your mum for  for £14.99 plus p&p at books.telegraph.co.uk

4. Cream cakes and cocktails for two at Mr Fogg's Gin Parlour

£48 for two, Virgin Experience Days

Cream cakes and cocktails for two at Mr Fogg's Gin Parlour

Inspired by the eccentric protagonist of Around the World in Eighty Days, cream cakes and cocktails at Mr Foggs in Covent Garden will be a Mother's Day experience she's unlikely to forget.

5. A personalised breakfast tray

£29.95, Not on the High Street

Personalised breakfast tray for Mother's Day

Start Mother's Day right by treating her to a delicious breakfast in bed, served on a traditional, rustic apple crate-style tray. There's nothing to say she can't use it for drinks in the garden, too. 

6. Emile Henry baguette mould

£95, Amara

Emile Henry baguette mould

If she's ever fancied baking her own classic French baguettes, this bright red mould will bring the magic of the boulangerie to her kitchen. The ceramic domed lid ensures the right level of humidity is reached to make three perfectly crusty baguettes every time.

7. Slingsby Yorkshire Rhubarb gin

£39.45, Amazon

Slingsby Yorkshire Rhubarb gin

Slingsby produces gin in Yorkshire with Harrogate's famous spring water and locally sourced botanicals. Now, the classic London Dry Gin has been masterfully infused with hand-grown Yorkshire rhubarb sourced from the famous Rhubarb Triangle. It's sweet, pale pink and best served with elderflower tonic and raspberries.

8. T2 "Birds of a Feather" infuser mug

£25, John Lewis

T2 "Birds of a Feather" infuser mug

Does she adore loose leaf teas, but can't be doing with the faff of a teapot and tea strainer? Buy her this pretty, cunning mug with an in-built infuser. 

9. Passionfruit Fizz cake

£32, Konditor & Cook

This prosecco-soaked sponge with passion fruit curd is a really delightful cake. The sponge is light and fluffy and soaked in prosecco; the icing is almost a mousse, and the passion fruit flavour is subtle. Serve with a glass of prosecco, and raise a toast.

For Mother's Day, Konditor & Cook is also delivering "Love Mum Dodgy Jammer" biscuits, and lavender biscuits.

10. Leather strap bread board

A hamper is a gift always guaranteed to delight. A Mother's Day gift hamper might be just the thing to treat her to this year: we like this extensive selection of pink treats from John Lewis, presented in an attractive willow basket. Inside, she'll unearch a bottle of sparkling wine, shortbread, lemonade,  truffles, meringue drops, fudge, strawberry and elderflower jam and more. 

13. Assorted cocktail macarons

£13, notonthehighstreet.com

Assorted cocktail macarons

These brightly coloured boozy sweet treats from The English Rose Bakery are the ideal gift for mothers who love both cocktails and macarons; there's a white Russian, a mojito, a raspberry daiquiri, a blue lagoon and an old fashioned macaron in the box, all wrapped up with a bow.
