Whether she’s the family cocktail sipper or a self-confessed chocoholic, we’ve handpicked the best gifts for food lovers to please this Mothering Sunday.
Earn brownie points this year with some delectable gifts. There’s everything from artisanal hampers filled with pretty preserves and sweet treats, the plumpest cookies you’ll find this side of the Atlantic and retro tipples to sip away a Sunday. For mums who love to cook, we’ve found, quite possibly, the prettiest air-fryer on the market that will tie into her kitchen interiors and a charming Mrs Alice apron to inspire her next Bake Off session. Plus plenty of new cookbooks to put pride of place.
This retro tipple is the first non-alcohol drink from one of our favourite brands, Black Lines. Legend has it that the iconic drink was invented to serve the then-child actress Shirley Temple. Nostalgia with a cherry on top… and zero hangover.
For those that don’t miss an episode of Bake Off, this is the perfect gift. A day of learning how to make cakes, pastries and desserts Mary Berry would be proud of, from lemon meringue to cheesecake and cinnamon buns. Oh, and it’s hosted at the Gordon Ramsay Academy, no less.

Without doubt, the plumpest cookies you’ll find outside of America. Créme is a London brand inspired by the sweet treats of New York – pillowy cookies filled with moreish flavours from white chocolate and miso to banana dark chocolate, all wrapped up in the prettiest pink boxes. Divine.
