Sourcing Special: Mother's Day
Scenarios to consider when picking the perfect present for Mom
What makes the mother in your life feel special? A simple question that can be difficult to answer with true specificity. To inspire a personalized reply—and an uber-appreciated Mother’s Day gift—we encourage you to consider the moments she carves out for herself when she can; the times she seems her most relaxed, her most joyful. If one of these descriptions resonates with you, visit Twenty Two Home for the perfect present.
She relishes a quiet moment with a book
A cozy blanket is the ultimate cue to cozy up with a good book, no matter the season. Befitting Mother’s Day, we recommend the irresistibly-textured linen throws produced by the Belgian family behind Uniq’uity (co-led by matriarch Laetitia).
She unwinds with a serene soak
Considering our own evening ritual, we relate to those moms who find solace in a bath. Help her feel even more at ease with atmospheric accoutrements, like the Cire Trudon La Promeneuse, a hand-blown glass diffuser from the iconic French candlemaker, a decorative art object that radiates light and scent.
She delights in meals made with love
A meal becomes a memorable moment when prepared with care. For the gourmand mothers among us, sophisticated serving pieces—like this graceful bowl from Astier de Villatte—communicate the thoughtfulness of the menu, and make a dinner made with her in mind all the more special.
She “plays” dress up whenever possible
Gone are the days of saving special pieces of jewelry for special occasions only. Through our selection of women-made wearable works of art, we strongly endorse the practice of putting your favorite piece(s) on every morning. A quintessential Mother’s Day present, jewelry becomes personalized when picked as a complement for her distinctive, daily style.
