How to really treat Mum this Mother's Day

Celebrating mum and everything she does is a yearly tradition that we've all come to know and love. There are many ways to show your gratitude but quite often the best gift of all is spending time with her.  Whether you're going to be near or far this Mother's Day, we have some ideal gift ideas that won't fail to put a smile on her face. 

Breakfast in bed

Breakfast in bed is a great way to get the little ones involved too - get them to turn their toast into pieces of art and decorate with berries!  Nothing can beat the simplicity of some beautifully fresh pastries, orange juice and a small bunch of hedgerow flowers.

Indoor Picnic 

Although spring will be upon us, there's no guaranteeing the weather will be kind.  If it's blowing a gale outside then simply bring the picnic indoors! Pull out your favourite rug and lay up a feast.  Think simple salads, cheeses, pâtés, crackers and something lovely to drink.  Don't forget to bring a little of the outside in, with some fresh greenery or flowers. 

Afternoon tea

The quintessential British tradition of afternoon tea is a favourite for a reason.  Petite pastries and cakes with fresh cream, and finger sandwiches with a glass of champagne. It's sure to be a big hit and wherever you live, there's likely to be a restaurant or hotel serving afternoon tea. If not, how about making your own?

Gift hamper 

If you can't be there on the day, then you can put together a hamper of her favourite things (and perhaps a few extra surprises) for her to open.  We have plenty of hamper goodies that can be stored out of the fridge and that last, so you can get prepared early!  Try our Salmon Pâté with Lemon, or vegetarian Mushroom Pâté which is rich and a favourite amongst the Cornish Charcuterie team and our customers alike! Our classic Seaweed and Cider Salami evokes the flavours of Cornwall and will be a wonderful surprise in the hamper. Or you could perhaps add in some proper Cornish rums for mum to try.

We have put together a few of our favourite items for Mother's Day here.
