There are lots of delicious ways to say thanks to your mum (or mother figure) on Mother’s Day this year, even if you can’t be together. 

Flowers and French patisserie from La Petit Fourchette

The LPF Mother's Day High Tea delivery is filled with a selection of 10 mini-patisseries and savoury goodies, and comes paired with a bunch of blooms from Grace & Flora. There’s Quiche Lorraine, cured salmon tartare, macarons and canelé, lemon meringue tartelettes, chocolate eclairs, grilled zucchini and fish bites, chocolate and hazelnut mousse and more. Choose the package with flowers for $70, or $40 without.

A delivery service will run on Sunday 10 May and contactless pick-up will also be available on that same day between 11am and 2pm.

A three-course South-East Asian feast from Cafe Hanoi 

In partnership with sister eatery Saan, Cafe Hanoi has created an eat-at-home menu for Mother's Day combining favourite dishes from both restaurants. Start with Vietnamese roast duck salad with red cabbage, pickled lotus root, pickled radish, chilli, roasted peanuts before moving on to a main of Thai Mussaman curry with Hawkes Bay lamb, Vietnamese chargrilled eggplant with toasted almonds, mint & fried shallots with rice. A South-East Asia-inspired box of sweet treats finishes the feast. 

There are meals sized for two, four or six people, and you can add matching wines from Champagne Laurent-Perrier, Amisfield, Mahi, Spy Valley, Dogpoint, Redmetal or Two Hands. 

Order now and it can be picked up on the day from Saan or delivered within a 10km radius on Sunday 10 May.

Lobster, high tea, a Josh Emett roast or Japanese delicacies from SavorGoods

The SavorGoods roster of Mother’s Day specials was so incredible that they’re already sold out, but you can use their concept menus as inspiration to pull together similar packages from their regular gourmet offerings at their online site. There’s contactless pick-up from Tyler Street so you can make sure your package is delivered on the right day.

A box of chocolatey treats trom Miann

Miann has two options for Mother’s Day gift boxes this year – a sweet deal of $38 for hot chocolate, biscuits to dip in it, their take on the classic scorched almonds, and a craft chocolate bar – plus a Grand Prix version for $56, which includes all the above, plus chocolate heart mendiants, a candied choc-ginger heart, and an extra chocolate bar. Both come with a personalised note.

Handcrafted chocolates and featherlight macarons from Milse

In packages of six or twelve, Milse’s luscious colour-spattered chocolates or airily crisp macarons make a great Mother’s Day gift, or you could go for a sweet bonanza with their gift box that also includes fresh-made meringues, marshmallows and shortbread.
