AD | Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2021 – Gift Ideas for Mums
Mother’s Day is coming up soon and, this past year, mums have worked even harder than usual with the strange life that lockdown has brought. Mums definitely deserve a treat or a few!
Read on for some lovely gift ideas for mums to treat your mum or the mother of your children this Mother’s Day. It’s a big gift guide this year so hopefully you’ll be able to find something that will be a good fit.
- Virtual Premium Wine Tasting with Independent Wine
Wine tasting is something you’d think might not be possible during lockdown and social distancing, but Independent Wine are making it possible with their virtual premium wine tasting sessions for Mother’s Day. Unlike many other virtual wine tasting options, these sessions focus on fine wine and each tasting pack includes three full-size 750ml bottles of award-winning wine from Italy – no small samples! The wines have been hand-picked by wine experts for the ultimate tasting experience and there are two bundles and two sessions available to choose from. Tickets cost £99 per household.
“The ticket also includes access to a private Zoom call. Lasting for a minimum of one hour, each session is built around a guided tasting. During the event, the expert host – who has qualifications from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) – will give an in-depth discussion about the wine region and grapes. “
The sessions take place just before Mother’s Day weekend, the 11th and 12th March 2021, and both focus on red wines from Northern Italy. Choose from:
