May is a month that finally feels like spring — at least that’s the case in New York City, where we’ve had a very long season of chilly temps and windy weather. But even more importantly, this month is all about celebrating Mom.
Mother’s Day is a time to indulge her, but any ordinary bouquet simply won’t do. Instead, give her something special that suits her unique personality and shows how much you care. From a handmade bag that’ll stylishly accessorize flea market trips all season, to an unforgettable tea for two, here’s how we’re treating Mom this year:
A Scent That’ll Transport Her
With notes of bergamot, lemon, and mandarin, Tom Ford’s Sole di Positano Eau De Parfum is a beautifully bottled scent that’s the next best thing to sending your mother on a vacation to the Italian coast.
This set of Basilius Besler prints by Soicher Marin adds a beautifully botanical touch to any wall in her home.
Bold and eclectic, Mignonne Gavigan’s Bird Earrings make a whimsical statement in a surprisingly modern way.
The Perfect Trip To Take
Treat your senses to the scents and sights of dozens of gardens in one stunning location at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Make sure to visit the Wisteria Garden, which comes into bloom this month.
One Fabulous Frame
Gift your mom a favorite photo with the Bijoux Frame by Blue Carreon Home, which features multi-colored quartz stones.
A Standout Mirror
The Boca De Lobo Apollo Mirror offers a dynamically different take on atomic starburst mirrors that’ll help her update her favorite space.
A Sparkling Clutch
Pay homage to the late — and beloved — designer Judith Leiber with a truly special clutch in a witty shape, like the Seductress Crystal Lipstick Clutch Bag.
A Chic Coffee Table Book
Charlotte Moss Entertains, the tenth book by the famed designer, celebrates hospitality with page after page of inspiring tablescapes.
