It doesn’t seem five minutes since we celebrated last Mother’s Day, as the past year has flown by due to many of us losing all sense of time during the pandemic. However, it’s that time of year again where we celebrate our Mothers for amazing women they are, by spoiling them with love, gifts and some much needed pampering.
From the classic gin tipples, to cosy lounge wear (a lockdown staple), here’s our gift guide on what to get your Mum for Mothers Day.
Gin is a great gift which always impresses any gin fans. This Mother’s Day why not treat your Mother to a bottle of this French QVT gin?
QVT gin is a new hand-crafted dry gin from the heart of Provence. Selecting only the highest quality local ingredients, the botanicals used in the distillation process include Juniper, Lavender, Rose-flower, Rosemary, Coriander seeds, Pine and Grape. The result is an aroma that captures the essence of Provence, whilst satisfying all needs from a traditional dry gin.
The initial taste of QVT Dry Gin confirms that it is a gin, with the juniper coming out first, after which the other ingredients, including citrus, coriander and lavender, start to emerge. Think Provencal sunsets, warm sun by the pool, or under a cafe umbrella in the square of a local village. This gin is ‘unapologetically’ Provençal! Perfect to enjoy during British summer’s night, dreaming of that Provençal sunset that we won’t be enjoying just yet!
QVT Dry Gin is available from Southern Wines, RRP £36.60.

PopSockets are great gift for anyone but will particularly benefit Mums on the go. The PopSocket Grip (pictured below) attaches to your phone case and has a swappable top so you can change the design whenever you like. The grip enables you to hold your phone securely so you can use it more easily with one hand or as a stand to watch videos hands free. The grip then pops into itself so you can have it flat when you don’t want it sticking out.
PopSockets do an endless amount of PopGrip designs, with a selection of them supporting charities. For example, when you buy the heart #spreadlove grip pictured below 50% of the sale supports Stephen Lawrence. Additionally, some of the grips have cool features such as mirrors embedded into them, and the bee one below has Burt’s Bees lip balm inside of it. Genius!

We hope you get to spoil your Mother rotten this Mother’s Day, even if you aren’t able to visit her, give her the love she deserves with a special gift.
