Although it’s a late one this year – Sunday 31 March 2019 – Mothers Day is fast approaching so we’ve put together some gift ideas to help make your mum's day extra special. Whether its bringing back fond memories of delving into a cream tea in a cosy café over looking Crantock beach or tucking into some fudge on Padstow harbour gifts themed around Cornwall are a great way to make mum happy.
Cornish Cream Tea Hampers
Cream tea hampers are very popular around Mothers Day for a number of reasons:
- 1. They’re the ideal gift when you don’t live near your mum any more so can’t easily take her out for afternoon tea.
- 2. There’s something very conforming about enjoy dollops of cream and jam on expertly baked scones whilst enjoying a brew.
- 3. They’re hard to beat for the money.
- 4. It’s a more interesting gift than flowers or chocolates
- 5. Everybody likes cream teas!
Cornish Food Hampers
Our Cornish food hampers contain lots of local goodies not readily available outside of Cornwall. This includes, Roskillys fudge, apple chutney from Boddingtons, chocolate Cornish pasties, fish and chip flavour crisps, Rick Stein cheese biscuits and Tregothnan Tea. All are lovingly presented in either a wicker basket with ribbon or a high quality lidded hamper.
Mothers Day Reviews From Last Year
Here are a few reviews that some of our customers kindly said about us from last Motthers Day:
Sally MacDermott bought Cornish Cream Tea by Post: Mothers day gift
For Mother in Law on Mother's day. Its the first time I used Cornish Hampers, having used other cream suppliers across Cornwall. She said that its the best one she's ever had. Beautifully packed and delicious contents. Will definitely use again.

I had this delivered to my mum in Scotland for Mothers Day. She was really pleased with it. She loved the little basket it arrived in. She said the scones were the best she had ever tasted and thoroughly enjoyed it all! I would definitely do this again.

Other Cornish Gift Ideas For Mothers Day
In a previous blog on food gifts from Cornwall we provided a few ideas of gifts other than our own. You mum needed to be located near Cornwall for two of these ideas; an afternoon tea voucher for a Cornish hotel or food experience voucher, such as a lesson at Rick Steins Cookery School. For a Cornish themed gift for a mum no longer located within the county what about the Cornish cookery mentioned at the bottom of the article. For a non-food related Mothers Day gift from Cornwall you could try Etsy which has a section dedicated to Cornish craft gifts.
We hope this helps and that your mum has a lovely day whatever gift you choose.
