Make Mother’s Day delicious with these edible gifts

The best kind of gift is one you can eat too!

Forget the Coles choccies and flaccid bunch of flowers—Mum deserves to be treated, so spoil her with these delectable treats that are sure to bump you to the front page of the good books.  

Artisan chocolates | 31 Degrees

Woolloongabba’s primo choccie-makers are riffing on the concept of a Mother’s Day breakfast in bed with their two specials for Mum this year: the Breakfast in bed snack bars, and Fruit salad slab. We’re talking cappuccio, raspberry scone, and almond croissant flavours in the bars, or rich white choc topped with freeze-dried berries, peach, and mandarin on the bar. Make it a one-stop shop and order a bunch from Foraged and Fleurs with your online order from 31 Degrees here, and mum’s sure to be grinning on Sunday morning.

Smoked butter | Agnes

Sure, butter’s great at the best of times, but smoked butter? Now you’re talking! Mum can lather this ridiculously smoky house-made concoction on pretty much anything to make it special (and you can treat yourself to a buttercream-filled kouign amann as your reward for waiting in the queue). You’ll have to join the queue to buy from 7 am, Wednesday-Sunday.

Red wine-poached pears | Felix for Goodness

The team at Felix suggest you “bake into pancakes or crumbles, serve with cream for dessert or eat with strong cheeses”, but TBH, we’re eating ‘em straight from the jar! As per always, there’s nothing nasty in these stunning jarred pears, and they’ll look gorgeous sitting on the shelf until Mum decides to crack into them. Order yours here.

Spanish conservas | Alba

A love of all things salty and savoury? I got it from my mama. Spoil yours with some of the best imported conservas including anchovies, mussels, and sardines that you can gift to her tinned, or paired with house sourdough and butter from Burnett Lane’s Alba. Chuck on a ready-made cocktail, and Bob’s your mother’s brother. Get organised and order here.

Crumpets | Billykart West End

The people go wild for Billykart’s house-made crumpets, and now you can gift their holy (sorry… holey) breakfast bites to mum! If making her breaky isn’t your bag, either, you can take away Billykart’s entire breaky menu from 7:30 to start Mother’s Day strong. 

Exquisite Hamper | Emporium Hotel

Treat mum to a staycation (emphasis on the ‘stay’) this Mother’s Day with this loaded hamper from Emporium Hotel! She’ll enjoy treats like a bottle of Mumm, hand-crafted macarons, chocolates, and tea all from within the luxury of her own waffle bath robe—you know the ones! Read all of the hamper’s inclusions and order Mum’s here. 


Chow down, Mum—you’ve earned it.
