Blue ceramic chip and dip bowl, £39.50, Oliver Bonas

For the ultimate host, this chic chip and dip bowl in one can be brought out every time they entertain. Made from terracotta by artisans in Portugal, we love the gentle three-tones of blue across the dish.

The Tomato Stall Mother's Day tomato hamper, £90

Who doesn’t love receiving a hamper stocked full of treats? Whilst this large wicker hamper from The Tomato Stall is certainly niche, all ingredients inside are extremely high quality and guaranteed to keep a keen cook busy. Alongside every tomato product you could think of (from shakshuka sauce and tomato balsamic vinegar to ketchup and golden tomato juice), there’s more cooking inspiration from oak smoked salt, black garlic and Belazu olive oil, all rounded off with teabags and even miniature gins.


Big heart mug, £15, Fy!

Make your feelings clear with this big heart mug - available in a range of colours to suit every kitchen and style, it’s a coffee break must have. Check out our round up of the best coffee mugs for more inspiration.

Smeg stainless steel milk frother, £170, Selfridges

This top of the range milk frother is a stylish kitchen addition for anyone who loves the retro look. Perfect for making a frothy coffee but also voted our best milk frother for making super silky hot chocolates, it’s bound to become the new favourite kitchen gadget.

Brioche Pasquier macarons, £15, Ocado

It's hard to find really good macarons on the high street, but French family bakery Brioche Pasquier has perfected their recipe to a tee. We love the crisp shell and just-right chewy centre, with natural-tasting fillings piped beautifully in the middle.

This new pâtisserie range, launched just in time for Mother's Day, includes six flavours of macarons (raspberry, lemon, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and pistachio) and comes in a box of 36 – so plenty for both you and mum.

Ploughman’s cheeseboard, £24, Fortnum & Mason

Is your mum a cheese fan? This elegantly-carved acacia wood cheeseboard makes the perfect gift for a cheese lover who likes to treat themselves to the finer things in life. Pair with a selection of Fortnum & Mason's artisan British cheeses, including cave-aged West Country mature Cheddar, crumbly brie-style Baron Bigod or traditional potted Stilton.

Pie delivery service, from £10 for two people, Willy's Pies

Will Lewis is taking his expertise from cheffing in some of London’s best restaurants such as Brat and Rochelle Canteen to a fresh pie delivery service. The handmade, ready-to-bake pie menu changes weekly but always includes one meat, one veggie, one sweet and the (permanently on the menu) treacle tart. We tried the smoked ham hock chicken and sage pie for two (£10) – crisp pastry packed with generous chunks of roast chicken and smoky ham in a creamy sauce and a slice of the treacle tart (£3) which was deliciously rich, sticky and dense. Pie fans can also sign up to a monthly subscription service for reduced delivery costs.
