Is it a conincidence that Mother's day is so close to International Women's day? It's certainly a great week to be a woman or mother! If you haven't yet bought a gift for the special lady in your life, we have found something from Boticca that means just that little bit more. Because Boticca are supporting International Women's day with a special charity collection supporting women in war torn regions. The most impressive thing about the collection is that 100% of profits from purchases will go to the Women for Women charity. These pieces are selling fast so check out the range of these beautiful keepsakes here. We have already picked up the BijouxBar Aquamarine Bracelet (£33) below.
It's Mother's day on Sunday and we think the perfect gift to give is fragrance because it's a luxury item you're least likely to buy for yourself! That being said, fragrance is a very subjective thing, so when buying for others it's best to go for fragrances with either soft floral, fruit or vanilla notes as these are the most universally popular and perfect for spring.
For beautiful fresh florals suitable for everyday, we love Marc Jacobs Daisy, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and Chloé Love which is a divine milky floral. There are also some fantastic fragrance sets which make great gifts, check out ones by Estee Lauder and Clarins below. Alternatively, if you're looking for a very specific scent or particular note 'rose' for example, Jo Malone should not be missed and all fragrances come in gorgeous gift boxes.
