Make Mum's Day!
Hurray for Mums and those taking on mothering roles everywhere! They are the ones frequently found juggling caring and work roles (with home schooling thrown into the mix this past year).
Traditionally Mother’s Day has been a lovely way to say thank you; more often than not by treating them to lunch out. Although that's not possible this year, lots of Hampshire cafes, pubs, restaurants and artisan producers have come up with some great alternatives.
Breakfast in bed? The Big Blue Cafe (also home to Court House Catering) have put together a delicious homemade brunch in a box tied with a pink ribbon. Contents include homemade banana muffins, cininamon pancakes, freshly baked croissant, filled bagel, yoghurt, compote and fruit. Or there's an Afternoon Tea Box with sandwiches, cakes, shortbreads, lemon posset, cream tea and more. Each box is priced at £12.50 and serves one - minimum two boxes for delivery. Order HERE
Sunday Roast. You may not be able to get to the pub, but you can have a proper Sunday Roast delivered to you. Fuller's will deliver a three-course Sunday lunch including London Portersmoked salmon with sourdough and dressing for a starter; whole roasted lemon and thyme chicken ready to cook, plus all the trimings such as cauliflower cheese, braised red cabbage, roasties, Yorkshire puddings and gravy; finished off with warm chocolate brownie with cream; and accompanied by a bottle of Laverstoke Park's award-winning fizz. Cooking is fool-proof as each box comes with a cookalong video from celebrity chef Brian Turner. (£120 for four people or £155 for six). Order HERE.
Time Out. Summerdown's Mother's Day Relaxation Gift Box (£39) has everything needed for a long soak in the bath, including cup of tea and chocolates for an immersive peppermint experience. Contents include soothing mint & lemongrass bath soak; award-winning dark chocolate peppermint creams; box of Pyramid peppermint tea; mint & lemongrass body lotion.Order HERE.
