Mothering Sunday is Almost Here

Mothering Sunday fast approaches (Sunday 18 March to be exact) so I am on the hunt for the perfect gift. I am going away for the weekend in question for my friends hen party in Oxford/the Oxfordshire countryside, so I must pull out all of the stops as an apology for my absence.  I have been extravagant in the past, weekends away in Paris, days out in London with tickets to the ballet, meals at Claridges and beauty treatments at Nicky Clarke (rather selfishly the plus one on the gift was always intended for me for some quality mother/daughter time of course!).  However, this year is slightly different as I now own my very own money pit, the official name, Beech House.  From a new kitchen, to coving, doors and door furniture, even down to a new banister, it needs everything to bring it back to its former glory.  I haven't even started to think about the big furniture, fabric and art shop that will be required, however I am extremely excited for this 'visual merchandising' stage of the renovation!  Anyway, I'm drifting off point!  With all of this in mind, I am on the lookout for a thoughtful gift that will not break the bank.  I still want her to feel spoilt, she deserves it after all, but my mother is a great believer in 'it's the thought that counts', a phrase that has been circulating our family for generations, so I am going to put it to the test.  Here are a few off my favourite finds...

You can never have too many candles in your home, especially those from Jo Malone.  They are the epitome of modern luxury and the Lime Basil & Mandarin is my utmost favourite scent and the aroma just lasts and lasts. 

Jo Malone candles from £38.00

The Fortnum and Mason Ladies Hamper is such a treat, with chocolate truffles, rose-scented soaps, pretty fondant sweets and pink champagne, all presented in the cutest basket.  What's not to like! 
The Fortnum and Mason Ladies Hamper, £50.00

This perfect cake stand catches the light beautifully, so timeless, so chic.  Available to buy at Butterfly Lane soon!
