As a young girl I always loved Mother's Day. I always got great pleasure from choosing the perfect gift for my mum and wrapping it up in lovely paper and giving it to her on Mothering Sunday in bed with her breakfast that I made, maybe with a hand picked flower from the garden. My mum's birthday is in December, and there's always so much going on with the hustle and bustle of Christmas I don't feel that I get the same pleasure of gift shopping as I do in the early buzz of spring, when the shop windows have inspiring displays just for mums and there are fresh flowers to be bought (or picked) just for the occasion. It always feels more special.
I am a bit of a sucker for good merchandising, and if something looks all lovely in the shop then I am so very likely to just buy it. Not bad at all, and in more recent years I usually settle for buying mum one of her favourite singers on CD, but this year while out shopping I spotted this, and thought what a wonderful gift it would make for the special woman in your life.


Chloe have brought out this beautiful pink enamelled locket on a delicate chain and encasing inside it a block of solid signature Chloe scent that quite literally smells of roses.
I know Marc Jacobs and probably other designers have conceptualised the idea of hanging a perfume on a piece of jewellery before, but I have long been a fan of the pale, simplistic designs of Chloe and this understated accessory is no exception. Such a brilliantly simple idea that you can carry your scent around with you at all times, and no one need be any the wiser.

At £45 I think this is a steal, and comes presented in a stunning gift box as part of the experience. You can buy the locket from Debenhams (currently holding 10% off all fragrances and cosmetics), Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, but I do suggest going in store as this little gem has pretty much sold out online.

Finally to my mum Belita, Happy Mothers Day, all my love,
