She’s the woman who taught you to eat, she put up with your teenage shenanigans and she loves you unconditionally. She’s there when you need her, hopefully not when you don’t and is the reason that you have become a fully functioning adult and not a sociopathic nightmare. Who do we mean? Of course, we’re talking about mum!
Mother’s Day means one thing – and that’s mummy pampering from dawn to dusk. And after the past couple of years, we think our mums could really do with a special treat. With the national day of honouring the ladies who raised us (as well as any new mothers, adoptive mothers, grandmothers, stepmothers, absent mothers, single mothers and women who don’t have children, but have been a mum to other kids many times) just around the corner, let’s make this Mother’s Day the best in a long time.
So, if you’re stuck not knowing what to get the n°1 lady in your life, where better to look than this handy comprehensive gift guide, compiled of our favourite mum-friendly products? From the best cocktail sets that will have her mixing like a pro, to perfect bottles of gin that will revolutionise her pre-dinner snifter, to sexy samplers she'll wax lyrical about all year long, our gift guide is here to make this Mother's Day a very special one. Mum’s the word, indeed.

Gift Boxes That Put The Win in Gin
If Mother’s Day around your place is all about gin cocktails and a nice lunch out, then we think these gift boxes will be just the tonic. We have three fabulous and beautifully packaged, limited edition gins on Neat & Shaken, so this year, make mum proud.
We love our classic gin cocktails, so we particularly love BLOOM’s London Dry when it comes to gift-giving. But if your mum is a girly girl, can we suggest you splash out on the Jasmine and Rose version? The pink gin is infused with real rose petals and jasmine flowers and will be a welcome reminder that spring is supposedly on its way.
If mum is a bit more of a traditionalist, we think you can’t go wrong with anything Greenall’s. Make mum go tipsy with pleasure with either the Original London Dry, which channels the best of British. It comes in a groovy union flag gift box and makes your present so much easier to wrap than a bunch of flowers.
Whether you're together or not this Mother’s Day, isn’t it time you raise a glass and celebrate mums everywhere? Thank you ladies, we are who we are because of you.
