When Is Mother’s Day

Are you wondering when is Mother’s Day in 2024? You better start! As it is fast approaching. Mother’s Day occurs on different dates across the UK, Mexico, Australia and the USA but always falls on a Sunday. In Australia, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May, so every year the date changes. This year Mother’s Day will be held on Sunday 12th May.

Gift Baskets and Gift Hampers For Mum

Time to find the perfect gift for Mum is running out. The question on everyone’s mind is ‘What do I get the woman who has it all?’, the key is to gift something that is both tangible and sentimental.

Mother’s Day began as a day to honour mothers and the sacrifices they make for their children. But over time the meaning of Mother’s Day has departed from its origins, often criticised as a materialistic free-for-all. Mothers are towers of patience, known for their selfless nature and giving unconditionally. And although we can probably never repay her, acknowledging everything your mum has provided you with an intentional gift is the least we can do.

Make the number one woman in your life feel special this year and rule out any generic and common gifts. What most mothers want for Mother’s Day is to be remembered and to spend time with the people they love. Gourmet Basket’s Mother’s Day Hampers acknowledge this need, curating personalised gifting experiences designed to be shared. Spoil your mum this Mother’s Day with a Gift Basket of her favourite tea, wine, gourmet snacks or candles. You can even create your own Mother’s Day Hamper and include any or all of these decadent offerings in one basket with a heartfelt message to truly gift Mum something special.

Our Essential Mother’s Day Gift Guide features the finest selections of Mother’s Day gifts, updated for 2024. Gourmet Basket curates gifts that balance indulgence and practicality, cater to unique tastes and preferences and show genuine appreciation, tying it all together in a beautiful hamper wrapped in colourful papers and ribbons.

Alcohol Hampers For Mum

Gourmet Basket offers a wide range of alcohol hampers from white and red wine to champagne, beer and cider, spirits and cocktail hampers. No matter what her drink of choice is, Gourmet Basket offers it in a Mother’s Day hamper curated with premium alcohol brands.

If you know Mum would rather be in Italy right now, treat her to an Aperol Spritz hamper complete with everything you need to pregame a European summer with a touch of sophistication.

For the hostess with the mostest, a mother who loves to entertain, gift the Moet and cheeseboard hamper the ultimate celebration to share with loved ones that doesn’t require her to lift a finger. We offer several other hamper pairings with your alcohol of choice and mouth-watering savoury options including artisanal cheeses, crackers,
quince paste, crispbread, and more.

Alternatively, if your mum has a sweet tooth she will be delighted with a Sparkling and Chocolates hamper, complete with a box of assorted chocolates and elegant sparkling wine. If you know she has a taste for luxury treat her to some posh bubbly with a Moet with Koko Black hamper.

Our handmade Mother’s Day baskets are packed with layers of soft tissue paper, satin ribbons, and a high-quality personalised gift card, guaranteed to impress before it’s even been opened. Whether you opt for French Champagne, Australian wines or craft beers, each hamper undergoes careful quality control to ensure your mum gets treated to the best. You know Mum best, so dive into our range of alcohol hampers today and spoil her with indulgence at its finest.

Chocolate Hampers

Is your mum a chocolate lover? The choices for indulgence are endless at Gourmet Basket. Our Mother’s Day Chocolate Hampers include gourmet chocolates, handmade fudge, and mouth-watering cookies. While gourmet chocolates might get consumed, the experience of receiving a memorable gift basket from Gourmet Basket will stay with her for days or even months to come. So choose a hamper that caters to Mum’s sweet tooth with delicious goodies, packed with melting moments, indulgent rocky road, organic chocolate almonds, drinking chocolate, and more. 

Our fine selection of gourmet foods is locally produced and sourced as Gourmet Basket partners with local artisans, farmers, and makers across Australia. Therefore, we source premium chocolates for our Mother’s Day Chocolate Hampers that taste delicious and have a compelling story behind them. Our chocolate range is perfect for sharing with loved ones or keeping all to herself. Chocolate-coated strawberries are always a favourite and can be paired with a bottle of red, white or sparkling wine. Why not go all out and add some chocolate-coated pretzels too? 

Tea & Pamper Hampers

If you want to pamper Mum this Mother’s Day, gift her a chance to put her feet up with a Tea & Pamper Hamper. This includes a velvet heat pillow, a soothing bio-cellulose mask, relaxing bath salts, and delicious Pukka tea. And it is all beautifully presented in a stunning gift box with wrapping tissue, ribbon, and a gift card. Relaxation is not a one-size-fits-all, that’s why we offer the chance to customise all hampers with Mum’s favourite products. Add her favourite tea, scented candles, and hand cream to truly personalise your gift. 

There is no shortage of self-care products in Gourmet Basket’s Tea & Pamper Hampers. Treat Mum to a velvet eye mask, a soy candle, bath salts, and some delicious gummy bears.

If she enjoys a touch of luxury in her me-time, opt for French champagne, super-soft throws, fluffy bathrobes and silky smooth body wash. 

Mothers are often so busy taking care of everyone else, they rarely get a chance to take care of themselves. Gift Mum a well-deserved break this Mother’s Day complete with all the products she needs to sit back and relax.
