Mother’s Day is the perfect time to show your mum how much you appreciate everything she does for you. And what better way to show your admiration than with a beautiful Mother’s Day gift basket?

This special day, also known as Mothering Sunday, has been celebrated since the 16th century. It originated as a religious celebration to give thanks to Virgin Mary and spread across the world in the wake of Christian teaching.

Traditional Mother’s Day gifts included Mother’s Day flowers and Simnel cake. These days, food is still a popular gift, with indulgent gifts and sweet being just one of many favoured presents, perfect for waking up mum on her special day.

Why not choose a decedent gift basket for your mum this Mother’s Day, filled with all of her favourite things? From chocolate treats, a bottle of bubbly or even her favourite perfume, the opportunities to spoil the most important woman in your life are endless.
