Mother's Day hampers

Instead of the usual bunch of flowers and a box of chocolates, why not spoil your mum with Mother's Day hampers full of unique treats? From afternoon tea hampers and pampering lotions and potions to bottles of bubbles and a tonne of chocolate, there are a variety of hampers available to buy these days to suit every mum's fancy.

When words in a Mother's Day card just aren't enough to tell your mum just how much they mean to you, a hamper will go a little way towards showing them. The beauty of a Mother's Day hamper is that they are chock-a-block with all different types of gifts so they'll be spoilt for choice. Many have themes so you buy one that best suits your mum's interests and likes, such as chocolate ones for chocoholics and beauty ones for mums who love a pamper.

Whether you're seeing your mum in person or needing to send a gift from afar, we've shortlisted our favourite Mother's Day hampers that will get you major brownie points. Of course, you don't even have to wait until Mothering Sunday to treat them to a hamper though. They are a lovely gift to show them your love "just because", no matter what time of year it is.

When is Mother's Day 2024?

Mother's Day this year is on Sunday 10 March so you've still got plenty of time to organise a flower delivery and decide on a present.

How to make your own Mother's Day hamper:

If you'd rather give a hamper that has a personalised touch this Mother's Day, why not consider making your own gift box? All you need to do is buy a box or a hamper and a filling, such as shredded tissue paper, and then you can pick your gifts.

The best thing about making a Mother's Day hamper yourself is that you can tailor it exactly to what your mum loves. However, if you're stuck for ideas, things you might want to add to a 'make your own' hamper include:

• Tea, coffee or hot chocolate
• Chocolates and biscuits
• Nuts and crisps
• Cheese and crackers
• Wine, prosecco or Champagne
• Bath bombs, salts and lotions
• Face and foot masks
• Candle or reed diffuser
• Pyjamas and fluffy socks
