Gift ideas for Mother’s day 2023

This blog post is kindly sponsored by The Cornish Hamper Store.
Looking for the Mother of all gifts? Well look no further, The Cornish Hamper Store have a whole range of thoughtful treats for every kind of Mum that are not just your stereotypical flowers but instead are bursting with classic Cornish flavours, you simply cannot go wrong!
When trying to pick which hamper to pick for my Mum I was overjoyed with the amount of choice there was on The Cornish Hamper Store website. My Mum is a lover of all things Cornwall and with the website so easy to navigate and their being a specific Mother’s day range I could quickly identify the type of hamper my Mum would love to receive on Mother’s day (which is Sunday the 29th of March.)
I was torn between a few options:

What did my hamper include?

  • Freshly Baked Traditional Cornish Plain Scones (4 pack) – Authentic Cornish plain scones, the foundation of any Cornish cream tea.
  • Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream (113g) – A rich, thick cream topped with a golden crust. Made in the heart of Cornwall.
  • Boddington’s Berries Strawberry Conserve (4 x 28g) – Boddington’s jam is made with 80% hand-picked whole fresh fruit, with only lemon juice and sugar added.
  • Cornish Tea Smugglers Brew Tea Bags (4 Individuals) – An honest ‘all-day, everyday’ tea and the perfect accompaniment for a Cornish cream tea.
  • Furniss Cornish Fairings Snack Pack (40g) –  A traditional Cornish sweet biscuit using ginger, cinnamon, coriander and pimento to give a warmed, spiced taste.
  • Furniss Cornish Clotted Cream Shortbread Snack Pack (40g) – Made with Cornish clotted cream and butter from Trewithen Dairy to give a rich, fresh, naturally sweet taste.

Next day delivery is available and you can also have included a personalised gift message, perfect for if you’re unable to be with your Mum on the day. You also don’t have to worry about if she will be in to receive the parcel as there are postal hampers also available which simply fit through the letterbox.

Give the gift of Cornwall

Now more than ever it is important to support local businesses and with The Cornish Hamper Store being based in Redruth and suppling  a whole of host of Cornish brands from pasties to scones to alcohol and sweet treats you really can’t get anymore quintessential Cornish. 
You can feel good that you are supporting businesses in Cornwall as well as knowing your Mum will be receiving a high quality, tasty and thoughtful gift on Mother’s day.
If you want to make her Mother’s day even more special why not take it one step further like I did and enjoy a picnic on her favourite beach.
I opted for Perranporth beach high up in the sand dunes where you can watch the world go by while sipping on a mug of Cornish tea after enjoying your scones with jam and cream, jam fist though of course! 
You can’t beat eating Cornish produce in a beautiful Cornish location.
Let me know what you’ll be giving your Mum this Mother’s day over on my instagram.

Lot of love, Melissa x
