Mother's Day gifts: Make 2021 a lockdown to remember

As the first mother’s day under lockdown rapidly approaches, this year it’s more important than ever to get your gift just right. This year we have focused on the amazing food options you can lavish upon your wonderful mother – or you could even buy two and eat them together over a nice, long Zoom chat. We’ve also included some exceptional stationary and champagne options, just to cover all the bases.

Mortimer House Kitchen Italian-style Sunday feast

Mortimer House Kitchen is offering an Italian-style feast for Mother’s Day. Created by head chef Antonio ‘Lello’ Favuzzi (Anda, The Wolsley, Franco’s St Alban, L’Anima), the menu is borne out of his childhood memories growing up in Sardinia. The Mother’s Day kit includes Lello’s saddle of lamb alongside some never-before-seen on the menu dishes.
