1. Cooking a beautiful dinner or lunch is the ultimate gift in my eyes
Putting time into setting a table, filling it with flowers, great people, music and platters of food to share is the ideal gift to me. If you don’t cook, take her to a lovely restaurant, like Chiswick, which is elegant but relaxed and perfect for families wanting a long lunch.
2. Fresh flowers
Particularly your mother’s favourite variety, are always an obviously but lovely gift. I love peonies and hydrangeas (hint hint!).
3. An elegant bottle of Champagne
Something like Perrier Jouet – is always a welcome gift.
4. A wheel of cheese
I know this sounds crazy but cheese is my favourite food and a wheel of the best cheese is such a thoughtful gift in my eyes. It’s indulgent, and perfect for sharing with loved ones. Maybe even with the Champagne…
5. A subscription to delicious!
It’s kind of a failsafe gift idea for mum. It’s a divine magazine (yes I’m biased), dreamy, indulgent but practical – for people who love to cook or have impressive but effortless food experiences, whether it’s travelling, eating out or living well.
