Stuck for a gift idea for Mother’s Day? Something that smells nice but lasts longer than flowers? Something that she’ll love and makes her feel amazing but has zero calories? Read on …

Jessica Cunnah is quite a marvel.  She’s North Wales born and bred and works full time in a very demanding professional job. She bought a ‘project’ cottage last year and renovated it herself. And then, because she could – she started her own business. And she’s not even 30 yet!

Hattie & Beau was born last September, aptly named after her 2 beloved terriers. Yes, you heard me right. Last September. Just 6 months ago.

You might have seen Hattie & Beau fragrance burners in a number of hair and beauty salons across North Wales. That’s where I discovered her – in my regular salon ID Hair, Rhos on Sea. You might have noticed, we featured the burners in our Thoughtful Christmas Gift Guide. I have one on my mantelpiece which I light with joy every evening.

Jess hand makes the soy wax melt pots in small batches from her cottage in North Wales. They come in a range of gorgeous scents made from highly scented premium fragrance oils.

Here’s a little taster …

Sea Salt,  Bay & Blackberry,  Black Pomegranate, Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Tranquility,  Fig & Cassis, Bergamot & Verbena.  Which would you choose?  At just £2 each you could have a handful.

But there’s more, of course …

Jess, being Jess, was not satisfied with selling lovely burners and melts all over the place – so she’s brought out 2 new product lines – to celebrate 6 months in business! I told you she was a marvel.

Ladies and gentlemen we are thrilled to introduce – the Hattie & Beau Reed Diffuser, and the Hattie & Beau Home & Linen Mist  – just in time for Mothering Sunday.

We are very impressed.

The packaging is beautiful, exclusive looking and fully recyclable. It will make a fabulous gift, if you can bear to give it away. And the smell – well, it’s incredible.  When I was photographing the products for this blog. I opened the reeds to put in the bottle and the smell filled the room within a minute. I kid you not.  It’s now in the bathroom, and (I know we live in a cottage too) literally fills the whole house. Simply wonderful.

Which reminds me, I need to tell you about the reeds. In case you think they’re just ordinary reeds! Nothing ordinary here – they’re porex e-reeds, market leading, unique colour and silky soft.  Jess tells me (and she’s super-excited) they’re a rare find and really enhance the scent.
