For your Mother

The Ritz

If you’re mum is elegant and sweet then what better way to treat her than to experience the classic British tradition of afternoon tea at the esteemed Ritz London. Known for its luxury and sophistication, the Ritz offers impeccable service and fine dining. As you step into the opulent Palm Court, adorned with its signature chandeliers and ornate décor, you are transported to an era of glamour and grace. The atmosphere resonates with the gentle clink of fine china and the soft murmur of delighted conversations, creating an ambiance of timeless charm. Book their Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea to enjoy a selection of sandwiches, fresh scones with clotted cream and preserves, plus a range of pastries and cakes crafted by expert chefs. Each morsel showcases the Ritz's dedication to culinary excellence. Your afternoon tea is enhanced by a handpicked selection of teas from top global gardens. The Ritz's afternoon tea is a celebration of tradition and indulgence, promising a memorable experience of tea and hospitality in the heart of London.


Since its inception in 1961, Diptyque has become synonymous with unparalleled craftsmanship and the creation of sweet-scented masterpieces that transcend the ordinary. At the heart of Diptyque's allure is a commitment to excellence and a profound appreciation for the art of fragrance. We think their Roses candle in this pink beautiful porcelain vessel makes the perfect gift.


McQueens is not merely a florist but a curator of botanical dreams and that become an international sensation. With a legacy steeped in craftsmanship and a passion for the extraordinary, each creation from McQueens tells a story of elegance, sophistication, and timeless allure. We recommend the Daphne Bouquet, a splendid display for spring tulips that will delight any flower lover.

For the busy Mum


We’re not a fan of trends, but the Ölend bags just make sense for the busy Mum who needs to pack a days worth of stuff in one bag and we think this trend is here to stay. Ölend’s core mission matches our own, focusing on sustainability and functionality, ensuring a longer lasting product. Their designs are simple, initiative and effective. The Ona Soft Bag is ideal for a busy Mum who needs a bag that fit everything and anything, from a laptop to an extra pair of a spare change of clothes, this bag, that doubles as a backpack, can handle it all.


Chilly’s have managed to do the impossible, make drinking water fun. By partnering with the iconic Liberty, they have created a beautiful, functional and sustainable bottle to keep your drinks hot or cold, ideal for a busy Mum who never seems to have the time to drink their coffee whilst it’s hot. With the new release of their flip lid, drinking on the go has never been easier and more stylish. We love all their Mother’s Day Bundles, especially the Libery Flip Due in Whale. Made for on-the-move, it keeps your drinks cold for up to 24 hours.

Apple Watch

Apple needs no introduction, but lets talk about their smart watch, or the Apple Watch. Perfectly syncing with all other Apple products, this powerful accessory will be invaluable for anyone who is struggling to keep on top of the household schedule and remembering birthdays parties, appointments etc. Being able to set reminders for absolutely anything by just saying “Siri, remind me to…” is the ideal solution to the time consuming written to-do list. Always losing their phone or spending way too long digging in their handbag to check it’s in there before leaving the house? Just ping it off the watch for peace of mind or to discover which little angel has taken it to watch YouTube. Our top choice is the new Apple Watch Series 9 in Starlight. Not quite gold, not quite silver, its the perfect sophisticated colour that goes with any jewellery. We recommend having a day to day strap like the ones Apple offers and a more demur evening strap that wouldn’t be out of place at a dinner party like you can find at The Watch Strap Co.

For your grandmother

This is heavier than most pillowcases on the market, which are either 16 momme or 19 momme and the superior grade means they are more lustrous, more durable and machine-washable.”
