After a couple of months of planning and plotting, I am so excited that I am finally able to bring you a wonderful Mother’s Day Gift Guide from 6 wonderful brands. The difference with this Gift Guide however, is that every purchase or booking you make will support the charity Sentebale!
What is Sentebale?
Sentebale is a charity founded in 2006 by Prince Harry, together with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, that supports orphans and vulnerable children in sub-Saharan Africa, many of whom are victims of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Through programmes of education, psychosocial support, and care, Sentebale is supporting the mental health and wellbeing of these children so they can lead healthy, happy lives.
Find out more about Sentebale here
Why Am I Involved?
I am so delighted to be partnering with Sentebale as I spent 6 months in Sub Saharan Africa working with children affected by HIV in 2007. My time spent in South Africa and Uganda really enabled me to see how vulnerable these children are. Now that I am a mother myself, I understand even more how hard it must be for children who don’t have a mother and really want to do something to help.
I am sure you will love all the choices below, shopping in the knowledge that you are supporting the most vulnerable children in Lesotho and Botswana, many of whom are living without their mother.
You can make a difference by choosing a gift for your own mother or perhaps you can forward this onto your husband or partner who is choosing a gift for you on behalf of the kids!
So, here they are…

A Beautiful Bouquet of fresh flowers from Moyes Stevens
Runs between 17th – 29 th March, 2017
My house if filled with faux flowers and so my husband doesn’t see the point of buying me flowers ‘as I already have so many’. However when he saw this bouquet, he had to agree that they were beautiful and a massive treat to have in the house.
Not only are Moyses Stevens the Royal florist, they have a flare for colour and the smell is sensational. Sentebale means ‘forget me not’ in Lesotho, so it is fantastic to see these represented within the arrangement.
What’s In The Bouquet?
White Hypericum Berries
Sweet Avalanche Roses
Rosemary and Eucalyptus
There are 3 different sizes for you to choose from –
This one is a large! Can you imagine a deluxe! Wow!

Mother’s Day Champagne Afternoon Tea at The Bulgari Hotel
Runs Between 17th – 29th March, 2017
What mother doesn’t need some time off once in a while? However, unless it is booked for you, it easy to feel guilty about leaving the little darlings, and you literally need to be sent.
With this in mind, I would love to be sent with a girlfriend into the centre of London to have an Afternoon Tea with Champagne. Where is more opulent and spoiling than the Bulgari Hotel?!
Set in pure opulence, you will be waited on hand and foot and actually have an uninterrupted conversation. Bliss!
The Bulgari Hotel will donate £5 to Sentebale every time a Champagne Afternoon Tea (47pp) is booked between 17th – 29th March.
Book online here and please be sure to reference ‘Sentebale Afternoon Tea’ in the ‘special requests’ section!
