There's less than a week to go before Mother's Day so we've collected some of our favourite French essentials to make your mum feel like she's just returned from a chic Parisian sojourn.
Be inspired by the city of lights and treat your mum (or yourself) to a francophile surprise that mixes great design with a little bit of luxury.
We're big fans of Medecine Douce and designer Marie Montaud's beautiful store on the Canal Saint-Martin is one of our go-to places in Paris when we need to find the perfect piece of jewellery.
Montaud's designs sit perfectly between contemporary cool and classic chic with a quirky Parisian twist thrown in. We particularly love the tassel jewellery for a little wink to our love of interior design.
Abstract geometric forms and desaturated colours make these gorgeous prints interesting enough to be the focal point in a room while safe enough to be liked by anyone. We've got our eye on the print that has its eye on us.
Diptyque is the best worst-kept secret in Paris because at least one of their gorgeous candles seems to be in every Parisian apartment, ours included. But less known are the beautiful fragrances that also bear the iconic black and white label.
Our favourite fragrance happens to be Diptyque's signature perfume, 34, which is available as a solid perfume to layer the gorgeous scent for longer-lasting wear. Check out their chic range, it's impressive, the quality is always exceptional and what could be more perfect for Mother's Day?
For mothers who are lucky enough to live in or take a holiday to Paris, David Lebovitz's gourmet tours are a great way to discover or rediscover the elegant, edible treats around the city.
Lebovitz is an American patissier and blogger who has lived in Paris for many years and his knowledge of the food scene is second to none. If Paris is a little far, his new book My Paris Kitchen is a great substitute until your next trip.
A gorgeous scarf is the unofficial sartorial essential in Paris and there's no scarf more Parisian than those from the achingly chic Hermés, just be prepared to have a light purse for a while after acquiring one.
We've chosen some of the most contemporary scarves from their latest collection, all of which are available online for a perfect last-minute gift. If they seem a little steep, just remind your mum that sharing is caring.
