Mother’s Day can be a bit tricky to buy for. As a mum myself most of the things on my wish list wouldn’t cost anything, a full nights sleep, dinner without complaints and drinking a cup of tea while it’s still hot. Unfortunately, while those things are free, several years of parenting has also taught me that they’re also wildly over ambitious and probably never going to happen. Besides, if truth be told, I think I’d be a bit miffed if I woke up and was informed that my cup of hot steaming tea was in fact my Mother’s Day gift and could I now crack on as no one can get the wi-fi to work. So what does make a good Mother’s Day present? Well for me a great present is something you’ve fancied for a while but haven’t really been able to justify, and that’s where the Biscuiteers Mother’s Day Bouquet Tin comes in.
See, if I’m perfectly honest, I’ve been eyeing up things from the Biscuiteers website for quite a while. Their superhero biscuits are the kind of thing my kids would adore, the unicorn biscuit box is perfect for my daughter (ok, for me. I happily admit that I buy her unicorn stuff to feed my own obsession) and hello, what’s that? An Emmeline Pankhurst gingerbread man? Why is that not in my life already?! So yes, I am a big fan but being a mum means that frivolities normally don’t make it into my weekly budget. Which is a shame, because we all need more frivolities, right? So when I was asked if I’d like to review their Mother’s Day Bouquet Biscuit Tin I of course said yes because, to quote Beyonce, I depend on me if I want it.
The biscuits themselves are of course as gorgeous as you would expect from Biscuiteers, beautifully made and beautifully decorated by hand. They’re packaged in a sweet tin that would be great as a keepsake too. At £39.50 these obviously aren’t cheap, but then they also look a darn sight nicer than a pack of rich tea biscuits and I know which ones I’d rather receive. Being packaged in the tin also means that they’re a great gift if you don’t live near your mum but would like to send her something fabulous in the post, they’d be perfect served with a cup of tea in vintage china or perhaps a glass of something bubbly instead. Now my only problem is to decide if I should keep these for myself or share them with my kids, what would you do?
