Thoughtful Food and Drink Gifts for Mother’s Day
With daffodils starting their golden dance, pristine snowdrops waving goodbye to winter, and a tantalising hint of warmth in the sun, Spring is undeniably on its way. And with that comes one of the first celebrations of the year, Mothering Sunday.
Whether she’s a cheese fan, has a sweet tooth, or is partial to a British tipple, Barbury Hill’s extensive range of food and drink gifts has the perfect option for every Mother, whether she’s a seasoned professional or new to the job.
Chances are, your mum has cooked and prepared more meals for you than you’d like to admit. So this Mother’s Day, why not return the favour? Barbury Hill has a selection of food gifts that provide all you need for an imaginative, delicious lunch. From the smoked salmon and prawns of the Smoked Fish Selection Box to the Coastal Picnic Hamper, these aren’t simply scrummy treats. They bring the gift of time - time for your mum to relax and time for you all to enjoy a long lunch without the prep work or much cleaning up either.
Cheese gifts for Mums
From a crumbling Cheddar to a tangy Blue, our artisan cheese range is handpicked to guarantee it’s the tastiest, most delectable cheese to be found on the British Isles. Our small, independent producers are passionate about their produce, and it shows. The Cornish Blue in a charming ceramic pot is a surefire winner, while there can be few better ways to show your love than with the Heart to Heart Gift Set.
Our own Barbury Boxes are perfect for a gift; they’re beautifully presented with a bow so ready to be sent and received with love. Filled with artisan cheese from small batch producers you’re unlikely to find in shops, they’re a unique and creative gift that’s a cut above anything you can find on the high street.
Sweet toothed Mums
For a gift as sweet as she is, how about a batch of home baked Salted Caramel Brownies? Or a selection of Brownies and Cookies that are baked to order and include intriguingly moreish flavours such as Matcha Kukkii, and Stem Ginger with Dark Chocolate, as well as the more classic combinations of NYC Triple Choc-Chip and rich triple chocolate brownies.
And there’s little that goes better with a chocolate brownie or squidgy cookie than a cup of tea, so Barbury Hill’s Brownie and Caffeine Box combines sweet treats with a beautiful mug and a choice of tea or coffee to create a thoughtful and useful gift.
Gifts for New Mums
If she’s in the early, sleep deprived days of motherhood, a batch of brownies is likely to be the highlight of her day, and keep her going throughout the day! Our delightful Mother & Baby - Brownie & Neals Yard Gift Box brings a moment of indulgence and pampering that can be missing, but so needed, in the early days. Rich, decadent Jolly Good Brownies can be accompanied by your choice of extras, from a super soft starry muslin to a selection of Neals Yard products including Mother’s Bath Oil, Baby Massage Oil, or Baby Balm.
Toast to Mother’s Day with small batch spirits
While we don’t need an excuse to raise a toast to the women in our lives, Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to say thank you for everything she does. Send Smoked Salmon and Fizz to raise a glass of Suffolk’s delicate pink Flint Vineyard Charmat Rosé accompanied by another of Suffolk’s finest - Pinney’s of Orford’s Smoked Salmon.
Or for a spirit from the other side of the country, The Salcombe Weekender from Salcombe Distilling Co. combines award-winning gin and tonic, and allows you to choose from a selection of each to create a thoughtfully personalised gift.
