In Shopping

We know that Mother’s Day will be different this year and some of us will only get to spend time with our mums via a videocall. So why not make Sunday 14th March extra special with a surprise gift from Dorset.

Many of our shops are now offering online shopping with Covid safe delivery and sometimes a gift wrapping service too. And the added bonus is no matter where you live in the UK, you'll be able to get a little piece of Dorset delivered direct to your mum's door.

Be sure to place your order in plenty of time, just in case delivery takes a little longer than usual.

Here are our top picks of online marketplaces to find the perfect Mother’s Day present in 2021.

Gifts for her

A favourite tipple, or two!

Dorset’s award-winning vineyards offer a selection of red, white, rosé or sparkling wines - the perfect accompaniment to any meal or special occasion.

Sherborne Castle WineYou can choose not only sparkling, white and rosé from Sherborne Castle, but they also have Wine Brandy which has been aged in oak barrels. The tradition of wine making on the Sherborne Castle Estates started in the Middle Ages when a vineyard was planted on the northern side of the lake. In 1982, the tradition was revived by John Wingfield Digby at Wake Court in Bishops Caundle. Sir Kenelm Digby invented the sparkling wine bottle in the 17th Century, for which wine lovers around the world are forever grateful!

English Oak Vineyard are offering a 15% discount when purchasing a trio of their Engelmann Cuvée, Chinkapin rosé and San Gabriel Blanc de Blancs.  If you really want to push the boat out, you can order a case of 6 bottles with 20% off the price plus free delivery.
