If you’re stuck for ideas for Mother’s Day presents for next Sunday, April 3rd, take a look below for some food and drink gift ideas from local traders and producers…
Sophie’s Bristol-based company sells products from small Cornish producers. Her Mother’s Day Hamper (£40) is a fantastic celebration of all things Cornish, including tea, preserves, honey and fudge.
Erica and the team have pulled together a special Mother’s Day treat from La Dame Gateau – a giftwrapped box of four limited edition cupcakes (Cranberry & Apricot, Chocolate & Vanilla, Orange Creme, Toffee & Caramel) plus four chocolate brownies – all for just £14.99. Click here for more details of how to purchase.
Alternatively, combine cupcakes and flowers in one gift by heading to Swinky Sweets on Park Street. Their Mother’s Day Gift Box, the “12 Box Bouquet”, comprises 3 rose petal, 3 violet, 3 vanilla and 3 chocolate cupcakes, all for £17.50 (normally £21) for orders placed up until Sunday, March 27th.
Some great gifts available from Lahloo – take a look at the Tea Gifts & Accessories section of their online shop, where you’ll find some great gifts including fab tea and candle gift sets (£25).
Mother’s Day wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without chocolates…and for something a little different to the norm, how about a box of handmade luxury truffles from one of Bristol’s newest chocolatiers? Varieties include Marc de Champagne, Raspberry & Rose and a fantastic Salted Caramel truffle – take a look at the website for more information…
Monday, March 28th is the last delivery date from Jekka’s Herb Farm for Mother’s Day – they’ve put together a range of herb-related gifts including vouchers, books and herb workshops. Alternatively, treat your mum to “Mum’s Herb Treat” – a special collection of organic herb plants in one litre pots, ready to plant. You can see Jekka’s Mother’s Day suggestions by clicking here.
I suggested restaurant vouchers as a great Christmas gift…but they certainly work for Mother’s Day too! See the list below for restaurants in Bristol that have gift voucher schemes:
Aqua Restaurant – Italian with branches on Welsh Back and Whiteladies Road.
Quarter Jacks at the Aztec Hotel – local and seasonal produce at the Aztec Hotel, Aztec West.
Fishers Restaurant – Seafood restaurant in the heart of Clifton Village.
Casamia – Michelin-starred winner of Ramsay’s Best Restaurant.
The Olive Shed – A flavour of the Mediterranean on the Floating Harbour, Princes Wharf.
Lido, Glassboat and Spyglass – Monetary vouchers that can be used on food, drink or spa treatments (Lido only!) at any of the three venues.
Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, Bar and Grill – MPW’s latest venture at what used to be called Cadbury House.
