With Mother's Day this weekend, we have made a 'Pimlico Gift Guide' with a few Mothers Day gift ideas to get your mum her Mother's Day treats whilst helping residents to shop locally. Pimlico has some wonderful independent shops, ranging from chic boutiques to fabulous eateries and world class perfumeries and this list could easily be huge, but here are a few ideas to get you started in finding that perfect gift.
Treat Mum at Daylesford Farm Shop
Treat your Mum to a yummy home-cooked dinner with organic produce from Daylesford Farm Shop in Pimlico. Daylesford Organic is both a cafe (in case you'd like to take Mum out for lunch as part of the treat too) and a farm shop, and has all kinds of wonderful organically produced cheeses and breads from Daylesford's own creamery and bakery, meats from their own animals and fruit and vegetables from their market garden. Daylesford can also help you with menu ideas, check out the recipe section of their website for more information. They have several recipes including 'in season now'. Seasonal recipes include scrumptious dishes like 'Summer dips with market garden croutons', 'Strawberry and yoghurt cheesecake jars', 'Pannacotta with poached rhubarb, blood orange and ginger'. An even better treat idea is to take your Mum along for the whole Daylesford Organic Farm Shop experience and then cook dinner together from your purchases.
