Whether you’re shopping for your mum, grandmother, your mother-in-law, or even a friend, here is lots of inspiration for unique Mother’s Day gift and experience ideas to suit a whole host of different personalities and hobbies.

Slingsby Rhubarb Gin

A delicious blend of London dry gin, crafted using locally sourced botanicals and infused with the finest Yorkshire rhubarb.

Slingsby’s vision is to capture the essence of Harrogate in a bottle, drawing on the town’s natural assets. Complementing water drawn from the world renowned Harrogate aquifer, the key ingredients of Slingsby Gin are hand-grown local plants which are synonymous with the beautiful and restorative nature of Harrogate.

The bottle is stunning too!

Available in a wide range of outlets.

  • Keep the family organised from your kitchen
  • It looks good in your home too
  • It makes entertaining easy for example if you want to add some ambience to an evening, the Google Assistant shows you the latest playlists from Google PlayTM Music and SpotifyTM.
  • You can stay connected with loved ones using high-quality video through Google DuoTM, even when you have your hands full.
  • Hands-free cooking – Be guided through recipes with the full list of ingredients and visual step-by-step instructions.
  • A smart way to run your home. With the Lenovo Smart Display, managing your home is easy. The device connects to over 5,000 smart home products – from air purifers to coffee machine, so you can see who is at the door while doing the dishes, or turn the lights down from the comfort of the sofa.
  • Hands-free learning When learning and trying new things, seeing is better than hearing. That’s why the Google Assistant on your Smart Display doesn’t just tell you things, it shows you things and all hands- free. So, you can play YouTube videos tutorials – such as how to x a leaky tap, or perfect the latest make up trend and see them on screen.
