Every mother (and indeed woman for that matter) loves to receive flowers, but this year, why not opt for something a little more original with Rebel Rebel‘s cleverly quirky signature bouquet of ‘Flowers in a Handbag‘. Yes, that’s right, opt for a seasonal (£80) or super luxury (£125) bouquet arranged within a vintage 1950s or 1960s patent, leather or snakeskin handbag. (020 7254 4487 or

Here at BATD we’re suckers for a gorgeous scented candle. And yet, sadly it’s just one of those luxuries we can’t always seem to justify for ourselves. When it’s bought for your mum however, there’s no justification necessary. We absolutely adore JO LOVES new Layered Scented Candles (£75), available in Lemongrass, Amber and Tiare Flower or Frangipani, Wild Reseda and Tuberose. (available online at

If you’re on a bit of a budget, our ethos is quality over quantity, so rather than dashing around Boots attempting to buy as many beauty offerings as you can for £20, we suggest you head straight for those ultra-covetable interlinked C’s. A beautiful Chanel lipstick, nail varnish or makeup mirror compact makes a far chicer offering. Choose from one of this season’s nail shades in April, May or June (£17.50

Looking for the perfect gift for yummy-mummies? We spied this super soft, modal and cashmere, floral print Mary Katrantzou Sugarcane Scarf (£340) over at Net-A-Porter a while back, and have yet to get it out of our heads (or should that be hearts?!).  Either way, we can’t think of a better or more beautiful update for a much-loved mum’s spring wardrobe.
