Mum, mam, step mum, dog mum, foster mum, mum-to-be or simply someone who feels like a mum to you. We’ve scoured the insane talents on our doorstep to bring you some unique, funny, foodie, meaningful gifts from local Hull businesses.
Mother’s Ruin? Mother’s Delight more like. These glorious hampers from Humber Street Distillery are the perfect anecdote to the first week off from home schooling, or a lovely weekend gift to celebrate with or without the full family around. Choose from two sizes at £55 or £25. The hampers are available for delivery from Hu1 – Hu16 only.
This book box from Bird House Calligraphy is a truly unique gift for Mother’s Day. A mystery book box with tea bags, bookmark and a hand lettered note is perfect for mums who love nothing more than disappearing into a good book. Perhaps even lovelier is that the books are pre-loved. Choose from a variety of genres including Romance/Chick Lit, Crime/Mystery/Thriller and Classics. Or you can choose “Surprise Me” and BHC’s book-loving owner will choose one for you.
G&T never smelt so good. Nordic Rosie in Paragon Arcade has so many beautiful gifts for Mother’s Day (lots under £20 as well!) that we struggled to choose. These glorious candles are a treat for the senses, and come with a no hangover guarantee.
We’re pretty sure that a beautifully wrapped box of chocolates will never go out of style. Luckily White Rabbit Chocolatiers has got you covered. Choose from a number of gorgeous chocolatey treats from this fabulous chocolatier.
Wreaths, hoops and bouquets, we adore them all. Amy makes the most beautiful floral creations. Orders can take a little longer when they are bespoke, but we’re sure your mum wouldn’t mind waiting for something so lovely.
The sweetest gifts for those whose mums love natural products. Handmade in Hull, Calm Balm makes unscented moisturisers and soothing lip balms, all with vegan and natural ingredients in plastic-free, recyclable packaging.
Homestead, based Paragon Arcade, is full of the most covetable gifts you’re likely to find. We’re a little bit in love with this Embroidered Stonewashed Linen and Cotton Wash Bag, and we’d bet your mum would be too. If you’d rather pick up some unique homeware, the clay candle holders made by Indian artisans, are also divine.
We could extol the virtues but instead let’s just leave this here… tomato & basil flatbreads, sea salt & black pepper wafers, caramel waffles, strawberry jam, caramelised carrot chutney, tea biscuits, Botham’s Yorkshire brack, Wensleydale cheddar with caramelised onion, Cheshire with gin and lemon all wrapped up in a wicker hamper with wood filling and a raffia ribbon. Oh, and that’s just in one of the hampers available.
