Mother’s Day falls on the 31stof March this year but it’s easily forgotten… wait a minute, MOTHER’S DAY FALLS ON THE 31STOF MARCH THIS YEAR, that’s in just 3 days time! Here at Drinkly we feel it’s our duty to make sure you let her know just how much she means to you – and whatever you do, don’t forget!
She’s carried you for nine months, fed you, clothed you, got you to school on time and brought you up to be the awesome person you are today. It’s about time the real heroes of society got the recognition and reward they deserve.
That’s where we come in… at Drinkly we have hundreds of quality brands; wines, artisan spirits, thirst quenching local craft beers – all delicious presents that can be delivered gift wrapped in less than 1 hour. That brings us back to the point about forgetting. When we can put your mum’s favourite G & T or glass of fizz in her hands in under 60 minutes – really you have NO EXCUSE. Even if you have that *oh sh#t!* moment at 8pm on Sunday, we’ve still got you covered!!
For all that they do for us, mums deserve to be treated to a worldwide tour. But, let’s be honest, no matter how much we want to whizz them away to a spa resort on the other side of the world, our bank accounts are just not on-board. BUT, a wine tour of the world? Now that’s an idea…
Take her to Australia with a bottle of 19 Crimes The Banished if she’s a fan of red wine, or if she prefers her wine white then the Wolf Blass Chardonnay of Southern Australia. Show her Argentina with some marvellous Malbec’s, perhaps the Zapa, or maybe the Trivento? Or why not give her a taste of Paris with a chilled bottle of Moët & Chandon champagne.
If mum’s got more of a sweet tooth, we can’t recommend the much loved Bailey’s Chocolat Luxe Liqueur. This fuses the traditional Irish Cream that we all know and love, with the decadency of Belgian Chocolate. Your biggest challenge here will be convincing your mum to share!
As it’s officially Spring and, thankfully, Summer is on the horizon; we say it’s time for Rosé (*All mothers cheer*). The slightly sparkling Mateus Rosé is a sure-fire winner whilst Isla Negra Seahorse Rosé is a gorgeous Chilean that is sure to put a smile on her face. Of-course mums doing low and no alcohol or having to get behind the wheel needn’t miss out… cue the alcohol free Eisberg Rosé.
With Spring & Summer come the flowers; and yeah we’re totally jumping on the ‘give mum flowers for Mother’s Day’ band wagon. But the kind that die within 7 days? No thank you… we’re talking floral botanicals! At Drinkly we have an abundance of glorious Scottish gins full of lavender, rose petals, violet, you name it. Why not treat mum to Rock Rose, Bathtub or the aptly named Botanist, laden with 22 botanicals. Harris Gin, in it’s picture worthy bottle is very popular too.
No matter what gin you go for, make sure you don’t forget to pick up some tonic. Your mum (probably) doesn’t want to start taking shots with her precious sons and daughters on Mother’s Day, so please, whether it’s Schweppes, Fentimans or Fevert-Tree, just don’t forget. We can even provide the ice too!
Speaking of forgetting, MOTHER’S DAY IS ON SUNDAY THE 31stOF MARCH!! DON’T FORGET!
We’re open till 10pm every day to make sure mum gets the gorgeous gift she deserves. Send her favourite bottle right to her front door in central Glasgow, or if she lives in Edinburgh click here.
