Best Mother’s Day food hampers (in case you can’t get a booking)

Play it your way this Mother’s Day, and dine alfresco at the local park, beach, or on your back deck, with our pick of the best food hampers that you can order today.

If you can’t already tell from the numerous places to take Mum for breakfast/lunch/high tea guides we’ve sorted out to ensure you’re dubbed ‘favourite child’ this Mother’s Day, Mums love being treated to a feast with the family.

But if you’ve fallen a little behind on the planning and booking process, and found yourself calling up her favourite restaurant only to be slammed with a response like, “Sorry, we’re booked out, why not try another date?” (no, I won’t, thank you very much), and find yourself flailing wondering what the heck you’re going to do to remain at the top of the favourites list with her, we’ve got another option: buy her a food hamper.

This one also works for Mums who are not too keen on spending a special day surrounded by other Mums sharing her special day. With a hamper, you can personalise her lunch the way she’d like it, eating the best produce a cafe has to offer, in the comforts of her very own backyard or dining room.

Because we love our Mums too, and love being known as the ‘golden child’ (insert halo here), we’re sharing with you the best food hampers for Mother’s Day. Better get the polish out, you’re going to need it to shine that brilliant halo of yours.

Best Mother's Day Food Hampers

Enjoy a Cuppa In Style Tea Hamper, Dan Murphys ($119)

Dan Murphy's. They don't just do beer, wine and spirits. They also do gift hampers. And while yes, there are alcoholic versions, if your mother's more of an afternoon cuppa type of girl, she'll love this.

Pop-Up Picnic

Mother's Day Picnic Hampers, Pop-Up Picnic ($139)

This is possibly the best invention known to the picnic world – it’s literally a dial-a-picnic where you’re sent a three-course gourmet hamper inclusive of cutlery, picnic rug, champagne flutes, and all you have to do is show up! You’ve two options for Mother’s Day here, the Perfect Picnic or Antipasto tables for two. Last year, the guys at PUP even threw in a bunch of flowers to save you the trouble of a present (fingers crossed they'll do it again this year).

Grandma's

Treats from Grandma's Little Bakery

Just like nonna makes. Grandma’s Little Bakery is stocked full of the cute and fuzzy stuff that wins her heart from the get-go. Think vintage style cookies and cake tins, jars and boxes, homemade cookies, teapots, and African handmade baskets.

Nelson Road

Pickles and Preserves, Nelson Road Tuck Shop

Right, so these guys might not have a hamper as such, but they do pickle, preserve, bake and make pretty much everything you see in their store. They even make their own sriracha – how cool is that? Scour the shelves, pick what she’ll like, including a loaf of homemade bread, and DIY your own hamper for her.

Call in your order: Pop in-store at 60 Bronte Rd, Bondi

Give her a little something extra for Mother’s Day

You’ve purchased your hamper. Great. Now what? Not done yet, I’m afraid. If you really want to make Mum forget every embarrassing thing you’ve done this year, and remind her just what a sweet, loving, and good child of hers you are, you’ll have to seal the deal with a present she’ll keep all year.
