Mother’s Day this year is on Sunday 27th March. It always takes place on the fourth Sunday in the Festival of Lent and exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday. Mothering Sunday dates back to the Middle Ages when children were allowed to go home from their workplace and see their Mums at Church – a rare and special occasion.

This Mother’s Day feels particularly special as we’re coming out of lockdown restrictions and we can actually go and see our loved ones again. That, just in itself, is priceless but if you would like to treat your Mum to a little something as well, we have put together this Mother’s Day Gift Guide – full of gift ideas.

If, like me, your Mum is always on the go and doesn’t have a lot of time (or energy, for that matter), she will probably really appreciate and enjoy the pre-mixed cocktail cans we now stock from Whitebox Drinks. They are a Scottish based small company who have made cute little cans of tasty cocktails that are gin and vodka based. As they are pre-mixed, all you simply have to do is put them in the fridge and pour them into a glass when you fancy one. There’s no need to buy lots of ingredients, no washing up and no mess. That sounds perfect to me! We currently stock three different cans so you can pick and choose or buy all three. These include:

We are not called The Belgian Beer Company for nothing! We stock over 600 world beers, mainly from Belgium and they are all available by the bottle. If your Mum likes a particular beer, then treat her to some of those, otherwise we have pre-selected mixed cases which make perfect beer gifts for all occasions. Our most popular ones are the Award Winners Mixed Case and the Something for Everyone Mixed Case. Don’t forget, we also sell the branded beer glasses to match a lot of the beers.

We stock a range of 75cl bottles of beer (wine bottle size) so if you’re planning on visiting your Mum this Mother’s Day why not treat you both to a bottle or two – perfect for sharing, whilst you have a catch-up!

If your Mum prefers gin, we stock a selection of Belgian Jenever gins – both flavoured and plain. The Braeckman Distillery has been a family business for over 100 years. They produce some amazing tasting flavoured gin liqueurs – the Braeckman Vanilla gin can always be found in my fridge. I drink it neat, in coffee as a milk substitute and also pour it over ice-cream!

If your Mum enjoys drinking all types of alcohol (she’s not the only one!), then we have put together a “Cheers Mum Mixed Case” especially for her. This includes a selection of fruit flavoured Belgian beers and a couple of cans of Tropical G&T. We’ve also thrown in a FREE Timmermans wooden bottle opener and some beer mats. Plus you can add a FREE personalised gift message to your order. Simply, email us your message to [email protected] or write it in the message box on your order at checkout.
