Haute Hamper
Move over gift basket, for Mother's Day I've had my eyes on this ultra chic Laduree Couture Hamper from Harrods. Not only does it come with three fabulous chocolate bars designed by Sonia Rykiel, but along with a selection of delectable macaroons from the famed Parisian bakery Laduree. It's been awhile, bu
t if I remember correctly, they're nothing like anything you've ever tasted before. They're light and sticky, chewy and merenguey in all the right ways.
