How often do you ask Mum what she’d like for her birthday and she struggles with even one idea?

Show your mum how much she means to you by secretly selecting a hamper or gift box full of luxurious items you know she will love because it’s packed with her favourites in mind.

Whether it’s a special birthday… 40th, 50th, 60th or beyond… or simply another year of being the best mum in the world – make sure you select something truly worthy.

Why choosing the perfect gift for Mum’s birthday is so important

A mother-child relationship is very special. It’s unconditional. It’s about care and protection. It’s about never giving up. But, so often we are all guilty of taking mums for granted.

Her birthday (and don’t forget Mother’s Day too) is the ideal time to show her how much you love and appreciate all that she does for you.

More than that, it’s a time to show her all that she means to you. Every mum is so much more than ‘just good ol’ mum’. She’s a woman with personality, experience, favoured tastes interests and hobbies. Choose a gift that represents this.

Gifts for when you can’t be with mum on her birthday

As we get older, it’s not always possible to be with Mum on her birthday.

It may be that you have moved away from the family home. It may be that you are too busy with work. It may be that you have your commitments that make it impossible to celebrate together on the day.

Why not send a hamper directly to Mum’s door? A selection of treats that she can use, enjoy and indulge in – completely guilt-free, of course. It’s her birthday after all.

You can include your very own gift message – write something heartfelt and special – and name a delivery date to ensure it arrives just in time.

No mum should miss out on her birthday – so let us help you choose the perfect gift.

Gardening Hampers

Garden Tea Break Hamper with contents on display

Gardening is such a popular pastime throughout the UK. We love the resurgence of the ‘grow your own’ movement and so many of our mums not only love creating beautiful borders and pottering in their shed but are also busy on their allotments and nurturing their vegetable beds.

Take some time on your mum’s birthday to show an interest in her gardening hobby.

What could you learn from her about your garden or what to grow this coming year?

Rather than a random plant or another set of tools and gloves, take a look at our Garden Tea Break Hamper. It's the perfect present for mum's birthday, this year. The basket is ideal for storing gardening items too. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Mums (…nans, grandmas and grannies too)… will love the thoughtful selection. There's a hardworking hand cream for hardworking hands, as well as wildflower seeds to sow. Plus, the scented candle smells divine – perfect for bringing the aromas of a British country garden inside.

The tea, biscuits and Dundee cake, packed with fruit, can be enjoyed after all of the hard work of tending her garden is complete. The hamper has all the makings of a delightful afternoon tea.

If your mum loves scones, jam and clotted cream, then be sure to explore our Afternoon Tea Hamper selection too.

Wine Hampers

The Classic Food and Wine Hamper with contents on display

Most mums age like a fine wine, don’t they? More elegant, more classy, more confident and more special as they celebrate each birthday.

As we get older, we truly appreciate that our mums are so much more than the women we know as 'mums'. They are multi-faceted and have their interests, ambitions and goals.

When was the last time you sat down with Mum, with a delicious bottle of wine and chatted about how she is and what she has been up to? With the grandkids running around or a busy job keeping you occupied, we know it is not always easy.

Let’s make an effort on Mum’s upcoming birthday to spend some quality time and be together.

If your mum loves a nice bottle of wine, we have a wide range of wine gifts and hampers to choose from.

From light, aromatic rosé, through to deep, velvet reds – our selection will suit any palate. We offer wines from around the world, such as Tohu wines over in New Zealand to Gauchezco wines in Argentina.

Furthermore, each wine hamper features a complementary range of food items to bring out the best taste.

Carefully selected, you’ll find cheese, rillette, crackers, chutneys, macarons, chocolates and even popcorn, that pair perfectly.

We also have a wonderful range of sparkling wine hampers and gift boxes, including the very best French Champagne, zesty Italian Prosecco and the finest English Sparkling Wines. Take a look at both our classic and rosé options.

Think pink when it comes to a special gin-inspired birthday gift for mums

Do you, your mum and your grandma adore a G&T?

We love that gin has become an intergenerational phenomenon. It’s a drink for all. It’s a drink for celebrations. It’s a drink for starting a blissful evening. It’s a drink for finishing the evening off with.

We have a wonderful range of gin gifts. We have gin-in-a-tin selections. We have full bottles of fruit gins, including pink grapefruit and raspberry, from great British brands, including Flagingo and Whitley Neill.

As with all of our hand-selected gift hampers, your mum will find perfectly paired combinations, including high-quality tonics, in a range of flavours, as well as a range of treats, including truffles, macarons, biscuits and sweets.
