With Mother’s Day now less than a fortnight away, you’re probably well into your hunt for the perfect gift.

As well as classic Mother’s Day gifts such as decadent cakes, we’ve rifled through our directory of ESEA-owned businesses to find 17 surprising and charming items that are sure to delight any mum. To ensure each gift will arrive on time, we’ve noted the last shipping dates of each item for delivery by March 27. And, if nothing here quite takes your fancy, be sure to peruse our Mother’s Day hub for more gift ideas.
For the mum who misses your Barbie tea parties
This delivered-to-your-door kit has everything for you to indulge her, from scones to lemon drizzle cakes. Cutter & Squidge advises ordering two to three days before you intend on eating, to make sure the treats remain nice and fluffy. The company offers next-day delivery to all of mainland U.K., but warns that in busier periods, one-day-delivery isn’t available.
Last date to purchase: March 26 (but slots can fill up, so double-check to avoid disappointment.)
