What’s more it comes complete with virtual instructions by its Canary Wharf head sushi chef, Satoshi; simply scan the QR code on the box.
One for Sweet Tooths
There’s nothing quite like hearing the doorbell ring and a gift arriving at the door, but as an alternative to a big bunch of flowers, in this case it’s okay to think inside rather than outside the box with Crosstown’s Mother’s Day Gift Box.

And to make it that extra bit special, there’s also the option to add a bottle of sparkling rosé or a bottle of red or white wine to complete its luxury set.
Alternatively, if you are looking to really get the message across about how much you’re thinking of your mum this Mother’s Day, how about telling her by writing a personalised message on a box of half a dozen Krispy Kreme’s?

Special guests will be performing live soul hits while mothers across the country dine on its either its slow-cooked spring lamb, fish pie or a vegetarian dish, all the while washing it down with two gin and tonics and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne.
