The perfect Mother’s Day gift idea

Looking for a small but thoughtful gift for Mum?

Mother's Day is fast approaching, falling on March 14th this year. Which means, it’s time to start looking for the perfect present. It doesn’t have to be anything too lavish or expensive. Just a little something to send your love and show her you care – even if it is from a social distance!

And here at Message and a Bottle, we have just the thing:

A unique Mother’s Day card, that comes with a little boozy bonus.

Mother’s Day greetings card cum gift idea

Our Mother’s Day designs are a lovely way to say thank you and are sure to bring a huge smile to Mum’s face. Not only are they a special greetings card that can be personalised with a thoughtful message of your choice; open it up, and she’ll also find a 30ml measure of her favourite spirit tucked away inside.

Yes ok – so it isn’t a luxurious spa weekend with champagne afternoon tea. Or an extravagant piece of jewellery engraved with her name. But let’s face it, things are difficult this year due to the pandemic. And this is still an incredibly thoughtful gift idea for a mum who enjoys a tipple.

It shows how much you love her and appreciate everything she does. Starting from just £9.45, it won’t break the bank. And if you wish, it can be delivered contact-free, directly to her front door. You can even choose from a range of spirits. These include:


AKA Mother’s Ruin. We have a fabulous range of award-winning gins, all renowned for their exceptional quality. See if you can spot Mum’s favourite? Or if not, we highly recommend the Henstone Oak Aged Rosé Gin. Distilled in rural Shropshire, this has a beautiful golden hue and a sweet vanilla-infused flavour – and is the perfect match for our unique Mother’s Day cards. 


Our selection of vodkas come from distilleries all over the world, including Russia, France and England. Whichever option you choose, it’s bound to go down a treat with a vodka-loving Mum. But our suggestion would be the Henstone Charcoal Filtered English Vodka. It’s unbelievably smooth, despite being particularly high on the alcohol content (43.7%) and works well with most mixers.


To accompany our special Mother’s Day cards, we also offer a special spiced black rum. This is blended using a secret recipe of spices and has a fabulous tongue-tingling flavour. Whether it’s enjoyed straight or mixed with a dash of ginger beer, it’s sure to warm Mum’s heart.


Perfect for after a special Mother’s Day dinner. We also have a selection of brandies, all of which have been lovingly crafted by award-winning independent distilleries. To give her an extra-special treat, our recommendation is the 6 year old house brandy. Matured in an oak cask, this is rich, smooth and warming – and its deliciousness is sure to make a lasting impression on Mum.


Did you know, more ladies are drinking whisky than ever before? And if your mum has a penchant for this delectable liquor, we have a range of rare and premium single malts to choose from, including Mackmyra Svensk Ek, Tomintoul Glenlivet 10 Years, Glencadam 10 Years and Penderyn Portwood – to name just a few. Rest assured, these are all exceptionally delicious. So, whichever option you go for, it’s sure to be appreciated by the whisky-drinking mother figure in your life.
