Personalise Your Bouquet
If you can’t see your mum this weekend, send her a fresh, fragrant bunch from one of SLMan’s recommended florists. According to Which?, trusty M&S offers the best-value flowers in the land – head there for tulip bouquets or hyacinth gift bags. There’s no shipping fee and – at the time of writing – it’s got delivery slots left for Sunday. For something extra special, Grace & Thorn does hand-tied blooms, with nationwide next-day delivery if you order by noon on Friday 19th.

Treat Her To A Fancy Italian
Dinner out may not be on the cards this weekend, but that doesn’t mean she has to miss out on a knockout meal altogether. A luxury pasta-making kit from Pasta Evangelists includes all the ingredients and instructions to home-make restaurant-level gnocchi, ravioli and tagliatelle. Want to go further? A gift card for foodie favourite Petersham Nurseries will mean that, when the time comes, you can expand your repertoires together at one of its cookery sessions or cocktail masterclasses. Vouchers last 12 months and start at £25.
Bring The Outdoors Indoors
Patch delivers luscious green plants – and a pot to house them in – straight to your mum’s door. Remind her that spring is on its way, with a Peace Lily or a trailing Devil’s Ivy. Prices start from just £10 for plants. Use the website to filter your options by size, their favoured conditions and the level of care they’ll need. All of the plants come with a long life expectancy, so mums can nurture their plant and watch it grow as the seasons change.
Send Her On A Creative Journey
Tim Walker’s exhibition has been one of the Victoria & Albert Museum’s biggest recent hits. The accompanying Tim Walker: Wonderful Things catalogue contains more than 100 of his fantastical photographs, behind-the scenes snaps, sketches and interviews inspired by the treasures at the V&A, as well as pieces from contributors such as Edie Campbell, Gwendoline Christie, Edward Enninful and Tilda Swinton. Let your mum spend the weekend getting lost in Walker’s remarkable imagery and creative vision.
Give Her Something To Look Forward To
The Pig group now encompasses seven food-first hotels at countryside locations around the UK. The prospect of a trip to any of them would be one to treasure through coming weeks and months. The group offers various vouchers that are valid for 12 months, including a three-course meal for two (£90). Ever-changing menus are informed by availability at local suppliers and whatever’s in season at the particular hotel’s kitchen garden. Some of the properties have Potting Shed private spas for all-out indulgence.
Set Her Up With Afternoon Tea At Home
If you can’t get to Claridge’s this Sunday, bring something of the five-star hotel experience to your mum in her own home. The centrepiece of your front-room afternoon tea could be a Mother’s Day set from luxury tea specialist Jing. Look out for its jasmine arch bulbs, which flower colourfully as they infuse. For the full effect, this showstopping tea is best served in some of Jing’s dedicated teaware – and enjoyed alongside something sweet from Biscuiteers or the Hummingbird Bakery. For champagne, see below…
Tell Her The Drinks Are On You
The Magnum Company delivers direct to front doors across the country. Send your mum an outsized bottle of red, white or fizz to pop on Sunday. Individual magnums start at £27. Order before 11am for next-day delivery or take out a six-month or annual membership that will see a different magnum delivered to your mum’s door once a month.
