Mother’s Day gift

I have just sent this to my Mum and my Mother-in-Law. It is a delightful box of six pink, red and white soaps – the sort you buy in gorgeous French Markets in the Summer –  one of them has Maman written on it, alongside a nice label hanging from the box that also says Maman. Much more useful than a card and easy to organise from French Soaps, who will send it straight to your Mother with a jolly gift message. Better than chocolates – my mum is still on a diet at 76 – flowers are a treat but they don’t last. Soap, however, keeps on going for ages. It costs £17.95 with P and P on top. frenchsoaps
