A scarf from Hermès

I took on the exciting challenge of finding a gift for my husband's aunt who I'd never met before.

We decided to visit his aunt and uncle in Germany. Ich war aufgeregt. I could showcase my GCSE German language skills. 

I had little to go on for gift-inspiration, having never met her before, but my husband told me that he remembered she wore scarves.

So I paid a visit to Hermès at Harrods.

With the help of an assistant called Fiona who seemed to know what she was talking about, I selected this.


Part of me hopes that his aunt loves it. The other part of me hopes that she hates it so that I can keep it. I think is beautiful.

*For his uncle, I was instructed to buy Port and Cheese.
