The best gifts are thoughtfully selected and a joy to unwrap.  My mother gave me this souvenir from Paris.  Layers of paper, crisp tissue and beautiful ribbon. Inside, an aromatic packet of earl grey and a glossy tea caddy from Mariage Freres

This little package from a kind friend made me smile.  Scattered with ladybirds and " a rose tinted spectacle" from Peyton and Byrne
