Wondering what to buy the mother, grandmother, aunt or special woman in your life for Mother’s Day this year? A hamper is a fabulous choice. Rather than sticking to one gift, they come packed with a selection of goodies for your mum to enjoy - suggesting abundance, celebration, and indulgence. They’re an ideal way of stretching Mother’s Day celebrations beyond the day itself so they linger for the weeks to come.
Big brands have made life easy for us all this year by releasing a range of hampers to match the personality - or specific needs - of the mother figure in your life.
The White Company has released it’s sure-to-sell out ‘Wellness Hamper’ if she needs to reintroduce a little zen into her world (frankly who of us doesn’t right now?) while a choco-holic will dive mouth first into the Hotel Chocolat’s Everything Chocolate Gift Hamper Collection.
When is Mother’s Day?
In the UK, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 27 March this year. The date’s origin come from the Christian calendar, where it was celebrated as Mothering Sunday.
The day doesn’t fall on the same date each year, but it does always takes place on the fourth Sunday in the festival of Lent and exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday.
If you are buying a hamper which contains food you should check the delivery information. Some products will have a longer shelf life than others and you need to check that what you buy will last until the big day.

Later in the day, she can enjoy a box of salted caramel ruby chocolate truffles.

A show-stopping hamper with all of mum’s favourite things; a beautiful bloom of flowers, a bottle of bubbly and a sweet treat.
The bouquet includes cerise roses, pale pink spray roses and pink antirrhinum, framed by blue eryngium and beautiful foliage.
There’s a bottle of pink ‘mumosa’ - a sparkling cocktail made with white wine, raspberry and orange juice made just for mum.
The last treat is a box of ‘mumosa whips’ which have been beautifully decorated to look like a fresh floral bunch too.
Cartwright and Butler have a tough time keeping this picnic hamper in stock, and it is not hard to see why.
Arriving in a sturdy yet light grey tin (with two handles, ideal for hauling out and about if you want a spring-time picnic) it’s bursting with delicious sweet and savouries - the tomato and basil flatbreads are lush, as is the crumbly, buttery fudge.
The Chocolate Wafer Rounds are a particular standout - imagine if a Reece Peanut Butter Cup have poshed up for a special occasion.
Replete with English Breakfast tea and York blend medium roast coffee to drink as you nibble, it represents excellent value for money - your mum will be bowled over.
This is a gorgeous alcohol-free afternoon tea hamper, so it’s an ideal choice for mums who don’t drink.
The wicker basket is filled to the brim with savoury snacks, tantalising treats, two types of tea and the brand’s much-loved and alcohol-free fizz and Espresso Martini sweets, because it’s not alcohol that makes a drink or food feel extra special.
