Everything you need for a perfect Mother's Day

With Mother's Day just around the corner we've pulled together everything you need to make mum's day extra special. Whether you're after some last-minute gift ideas or inspiration for what to cook, we've planned it for you.

We know that finding a present for mum that is as amazing as she is can be a daunting task. The 2016 Gourmet Traveller Mother's Day gift guide goes beyond the clichés (not that there's anything wrong with flowers and chocolate) with ideas that will be a guaranteed pleasure for mum to unwrap. However mum likes to spend her time (and money) we've got a gift she'll love, from top-notch homewares and kitchen utensils to fashion accessories and beauty products.

If you've got the present covered but are stumped for inspiration for what to cook, we've pestered our editorial team about  what they're cooking for their mums this Mother's Day, varying from mini blueberry pies with lemon curd ice-cream to rich cauliflower mac and cheese. Whether you want to make breakfast in bed, an indulgent sweet treat or a hearty main meal, there's something here your mum will love, too.

For all the tea-loving mamas out there, we've also collected our best  tea-infused recipes for a unique take on mum's favourite blends. Channel the aroma and flavour of fragrant leaves into your cooking. If it's green tea she loves, we've got a baked matcha custard with ginger-poached pears, or if she's more of a chamomile kind of gal, try the rhubarb, strawberry and pink peppercorn crumble with chamomile ice-cream.

If tea won't quite cut it on Mum's special day, we've got some  gin, whiskey and champagne-infused recipes to give your dish an extra kick. From a gin and lime tart, rum savarin and Champagne jelly to whiskey-glazed ham and cured kingfish with cucumber and gin and tonic granita, this Sunday will go off with a bang.

Happy Mother's Day.
