Mother's Day ... it's not just for flowers

Mother's Day ... it's not just for #flowers ... it's for #chocolates,#wine, #gin & most importantly, just being nice to your mother!

A card is essential, but what should you get to show your appreciation of the person who would do anything for you, 365 days of the year?

It doesn't matter what age you are, it's one of those times of the year when your thoughts turn to your family, and "day to day" life is put on hold because there is someone who's got to receive extra special attention...

So, the ideal gift?

The old "Mother's Ruin" has a certain reputation, maybe the wrong one, but whose mother doesn't like gin?

Salcombe Rose Sainte Marie Gin is dry, pale pink and, when sipped with tonic and a garnish of sliced strawberry, brings out the red fruit character of the gin. 

If your mother prefers the more traditional touch, then go with a ribbon of lemon peel (not a wedge!) to accentuate the citrus notes.

And best of all? It's a gin from Devon! 

£36.99 a bottle for Exceptional pink gin.


Continuing the "pink" theme and, hoping for some warm, spring sunshine, why not go for some of Maison Saint Aix Rosé to drink in the garden?

[I actually saw the sun earlier today... just a glimmer... just for a minute, really, I did, just before the rain started again]

#FraziersWineStudio can offer this delightful #Provence wine in 3 sizes: bottles/magnums/jeroboams

Salmon pink in colour with a fruity freshness on the nose. 

Don't you just adore the colour? It draws you in...it makes you want to open the bottle right now. Why wait?

AIX is delicate, yet youthful, with notes of watermelon, strawberries and flowers. I like the sound of this one.

Your mother definitely deserves a LARGE bottle. 

Get one, and you might get a glass or two yourself!

A bottle for £16.99  A magnum (1.5 Litre) for £32.99  A jeroboam (3 Litre) for £84.99 Do you really need more?


If you want to show your #mother that only the best will do, then offer her a lovely Italian #Prosecco

Amori Prosecco even has a "heart" on the label. Makes you go all "soft & soppy", doesn't it?

More softness on the palate, but with refreshing acidity, and lots of mouth-filling tropical fruit & citrus flavours.

Amori won't break the bank as it's a snip at only £10.30

It's the thought that counts, not the price!


Happy Mother's Day (Sunday, March 22nd)

If all else fails, then there's always the box of chocolates!
