The special gift for Mother's Day: A trip to Paris – in porcelain

We spend a lot of time on the road these days – today Berlin, tomorrow Rome, and in a few weeks we'll already be in Paris. At our side: the coworker, partner or best friend. By contrast, the only time we talk with our mother is on the phone. Certainly it'd be a lot better to take her along for a trip to Paris, to see the Eiffel Tower, shop the Champs Elysées or stroll the artists' quarter of Montmartre. Before you reach for your planner, though, there's one thing you should know: this is a trip you can take whenever you like – with the new NewWave Caffè Cities of Europe cup edition by Villeroy & Boch, the perfect gift for Mother's Day.

The new Villeroy & Boch NewWave Caffè Cities of Europe cup edition brings the flair of Europe's most glittering metropolises – Paris, London, Rome or Berlin – right to your door. Enjoy a café au lait, a cappuccino or a classic filter coffee as your thoughts drift away on a little junket to the metropolis of your choice. The individual motifs on the cups themselves offer plenty of inspiration along the way.

The Cities of Europe décor concept is an annual edition, making these cups collector's items for true aficionados. Made entirely of Premium Porcelain, the edition contains an espresso cup, a café au lait cup and two cups (0.25 l and 0.35 l) with matching saucers. The special feature of all NewWave Caffè cups is the elegantly sweeping handle that makes them a pleasure to hold. The handles have long since become the characteristic mark of this design classic.

Another Mother's Day tip: For the first time, Villeroy & Boch is also offering an exclusive, exquisitely packaged gift set of four different cups.
