Beautiful Blooms

Both The Flower Yard and The Flower Stand, Chelsea provide high quality, hand-tied bouquets, as well as customised artful arrangements. A bouquet of flowers is the perfect present for Mother’s Day. Choose from pale pink roses or bright tulips, these will be sure to put a smile on your Mum’s face!

Sweet Scents

Penhaligons, located on the King’s Road in Chelsea, has been servicing the local area since 1870. Providing ‘bold women who are proud to go their own way’ with scents in perfectly packaged perfume bottles, this would make such a thoughtful gift this Mother’s Day.

Afternoon Tea at the Draycott

Serving up one of the finest afternoon teas in Chelsea, our menu boasts a wide variety of delectable finger sandwiches, homemade scones and indulgent sweet pastries. Wash down your tasty treats down with a glass of Champagne or pot of tea in our exquisite Edwardian setting, for the perfect start to your Mother’s Day in London.

Decorative Pieces

Treat your Mum to something decorative for her home, if she is partial to an ornate centrepiece or two, choose Anthropologie for your mother’s day gift idea this year. The homeware in Anthropologie is just incredible at the moment. Choose from their selection of eclectic crockery and unique homeware for a mother’s day gift with a difference.

Special Stationary

You can never have too much stationary, right? If your mother is also a massive lover of all things organisation, why not splash out on something special. The gift shop at The Saatchi or Smythson of Bond Street has plenty of options from personalised pens and diaries and bespoke organisers. High quality, practical keepsakes are the perfect Mother’s Day present for women on the go.

Celebrate Mother’s day and say thank you on 26th March with one of these luxury gifts. If you would like to treat the one you love to an exquisite Mother’s Day afternoon tea in London or a stay at our 5 star hotel in London, view availability at the Draycott and book today.
