Mothers Day Hampers and Gift Set Ideas

Mothers Day Hampers | Mothers Day Gift | Mothers Day Presents | Mothers Day Cake

Stevie Wonder once said, “if love is as sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.” Though he might have substituted the flower with a brownie, had he tasted a Bluebasil Bakery brownie, and – we can assure you - his mum certainly would have thanked him.

This Mother’s Day, why not celebrate the mothers in your life with the delectable gift of gooey, chocolatey brownie goodness.


The history of Mother’s Day in the UK

Traditionally, people across 16th century Great Britain used to attend their ‘mother church’ (the main church or cathedral of their local area) on the 4th Sunday of Lent. Eventually, this morphed into a more general ‘Mothering Sunday’ and, rather than being a religious event, became a secular honouring of mums everywhere.

Children would pick wildflowers and either bring them to their church or give them to their mothers. By the 1920s Mother’s Day was a well-known celebration across Europe, and soon other gifts were given as well. Nowadays Mother’s Day cards, flowers, and of course chocolates are the usual ways mums everywhere are pampered.


Why brownies are sure to make mum’s day

The most important part of Mother’s Day is to truly show mum that she is appreciated and loved. We think our Mother’s Day Brownie Box and Mother’s Day Hamper are wonderful choices to do just that:

Our Mother’s Day Brownie Box is presented in our delightful vintage-style Limited Edition Mother’s Day Box and includes a delicious selection of brownie pieces.

Out Mother’s Day Hamper is an even more luxurious gift: We think the very best way to celebrate mum is with a selection of simply gorgeous cakes and bakes! Fresh from our Bluebasil Bakery, we have put together this beautiful hamper of utterly delicious sweet treats for mum to savour (or share – if she wants!)

Both products are packaged in environmentally friendly, biodegradable packaging, which can either be recycled or composted. You can even include a personal gift message for mum with a free Bluebasil postcard – or add a greeting card of your own choice for an extra special touch.

Why sending Valentines brownies is the ultimate gift of love

January 20, 2022

Much of how the annual day of love came to be remains a mystery, veiled by the passage of time. The earliest possible origin tale of Valentines Day is the pagan fertility festival of Lupercalia observed each year in Ancient Rome on February 15th. There was little romance to be seen on this day when the feasting was accompanied by sacrificial rituals followed by spontaneous acts of matchmaking...
