London’s iconic Borough Market has curated a range of three special gift packages to celebrate mothers in the capital. Handily packaged in a reusable Borough Market hessian bag, the Mother’s Day treats can either be delivered by zero emission electric bikes for those living or working within a newly expanded 2.5 mile radius, or easily picked up from the Market until 9pm during the week via Borough Market Online’s Click and Collect service – perfect for commuters.
Available to order from 3rd March, sons and daughters looking to treat their Mum can choose from:
· ‘Mother’s Brew’: containing a pretty spring posy with daffodils and spring flowers from The Gated Garden; first of the season rhubarb & ginger jam from Rosebud Preserves; Darjeeling 1st Flush Afternoon Tea, a mild, floral, greenish leaf only produced from the first week of March to the first week of May from Tea2You; and two delicious Strawberry Shortbread Hearts from Cinnamon Tree Bakery for Mum to enjoy with her cuppa. (Price £30)
· ‘Mother’s Ruin’: a cheekily named gift set containing everything Mum needs for a relaxing G&T – a trio of 5cl minis from East London Liquor Company (London Dry Gin, and premium Batch No. 1 and Batch No. 2 gins); classic and fresh tonics from Square Root Sodas; aromatics including thyme, rosemary and blood oranges from Starks Fruitiers to customise her drink; and a small wild posy from The Gated Garden for the finishing touch. (Price £40)
· ‘Mother’s Sparkle’: packaged in a large limited edition Borough Market shopping tote, Mum can sit back and enjoy a British sparkling wine from Cartwright Brothers made in the traditional style with fermented elderflower, rhubarb, strawberries and blackberries – perfect as an aperitif or with an afternoon tea; a mouthwatering slab of dark, milk or white So Chocolicious chocolate, hand wrapped in cheesecloth; and a wild spring bunch of flowers including wax flower and pussy willow from The Gated Garden (Price £55)
