The Liverpool Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2021
3 years ago
There’s no-one quite like your mum for a shoulder to cry on, or someone to share in the happy times – and, after the challenging year we’ve all had, there’s never been a better time to tell her how much you care.
Lingering lockdown restrictions mean you might not be able to see your mum – or the person who’s like a mum to you – in person this Mother’s Day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make her feel special.
And, if you’re wondering how you can do that, here’s 12 great gift ideas…
Berry and Rye Mother’s Day Gift Boxes
Your mum will know you love her with this! The lovely people at the Berry Street bar have brought back one of their favourite all-time drinks, the Med, to include in their Mother’s Day Gift Boxes, out now.
Each branded box contains: 1 x 60ml Elderflower Collins; 1 x 60ml Summer Solstice; 1 x 60ml Lovelace; the very special 1 x 60ml Med 57; 1 x Cansecco (yep, Prosecco in a can!), and 1 x Soda and, to make it extra special, they’ve also put in some heart shaped chocolates, dried flowers, incense and a tealight.
It’s available for delivery until Friday, March 12 while stocks last and costs £30 including delivery. You can even add a handmade card for £3.50 or send a regular box without the Prosecco for £25.
Laura’s Little Bakery – Mother’s Day Treat Box
She’s only gone and done it again. Laura’s Little Bakery has come up with a sweet collection of ways to tell your mum you love her from the most gorgeous and glittery cupcakes to heart-shaped brownies and scrumptious cakesicles.
There’s no mum who just wouldn’t love the Mother’s Day Treat Box. Containing cupcakes, decorative biscuits, a brownie heart and a cakesicle, it’s a box of pure deliciousness for £30. And, if you want to add an extra ‘kiss’ to your gift, you can add a miniature bottle of gin from local company Mother’s Gin.
For £21, you could send a beautiful box of four cupcakes with a brownie and a gold charm from The Cookie Stamp Company. Who’s not going to adore that?
Malmaison Hotel – Mama told me not to come
…well, until after lockdown so, for now, treat her to a gift voucher from the waterfront hotel instead.
Then she can look forward to a three-course Sunday lunch including a bottle of house Champagne for four people which is guaranteed to put a smile on her face.
The special Mother’s Day treat costs £99 and it won’t be long until you can enjoy food and wine, and each other’s company, in style in the Chez Mal Brasserie.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Maray – Mother’s Day Hampers
Maray has sold half of its special Mother’s Day hampers already so you’ll need to be quick to order yours.
You can enjoy a box-full of goodies created lovingly by Maray alongside one of their favourite bottles of sparkling wine, and it’s guaranteed to ‘create joy’. The hampers are suitable for carnivores and veggies (vegan options available upon request) and generously serve two people (or one across a couple of indulgent days!)
The delicious contents include: Fig & Sherry Jam; Red Onion & Pomegranate Chutney; Cinnamon & Citrus Oil; Smokey Chilli Nuts; Beetroot Pickled Turnips; Maray Sumac & Orange shortbread; Sesame Butter Puffs; A box of six truffles (Milk Chocolate Pistachi Praline, White Chocolate & Peach & Dark Chocolate Orange); Maray Hot Chocolate Mix; Maple Marshmallows, and a bottle of Cintilla Sparkling Wine. You can even add on a bottle of Maray Batch No.1 Gin or a Rhubarb Royale cocktail to your hamper to make it EVEN more special.
It costs £49.99 for delivery on March 12.
The Art School Restaurant Liverpool
Creative as always, Paul Askew and his team have come up with the most fabulous Mother’s Day gifts – whether she’s partial to an evening tipple, looking for a beautiful recipe book to add to her library, or she’d love a limited-edition piece of ‘Porky’ memorabilia – they’ve got it covered.
A sumptuous Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea can be hers for £68, including a selection of goodies and a bottle of Lallier Grand Cru Brut Rose Champagne N.V and handmade Art School Valrhona chocolates; or perhaps you’d prefer to serve an amazing three-course meal with amuse bouche, which comes complete with a bottle of Castorani Aianera gran cuvee sparkling wine, a box of six Art School Valhrona handmade chocolates and a living pot of spring flowers for mum (£128 for two).
There’s a selection of menus, along with a cheese and wine box, and a selection of hampers available for delivery and collection from the Chef Patron’s Emporium in Sugnall Street. The tricky bit will be deciding what to choose.
Selling the work of loads of our wonderful local artists, designers, photographers, and makers, The Nest will help you treat your mum to something that’s unique – just like her.
That might be a ‘Rise Above’ Foggy Day photograph of the Liver Building by Geoff Drake, for £25.95; a pair of pretty ‘Nordic Noir’ earrings, edged in silver and handmade in Liverpool for £5.50, or a large hand-sculpted Rainbow Dotted Vase made made in Liverpool by Louise Waller, for £42.

There’s limited availability so you need to DM the back Colquitt Street restaurant to book your time slot.
The Baltic Social
Nothing says I love you mum more than a confit duck and spring onion sausage roll cos if you haven’t bought her one of those, then you can’t really love her at all…at least that’s what the folks at the Baltic Social reckon.
But fear not, because it’s one of the main ingredients in their special Momma’s Day Punk Afternoon Tea Treat Box.
It costs £35 for two, and comes filled with loads of lovely goodies including speciality bagals and croissants, the main event – the confit duck and spring onion sausage roll – and a selection of sweet treats. You can even add a bottle of fizz, and it can be delivered across Liverpool and the Wirral.
