This year we’re doing our bit to support independent shops and makers; here’s our roundup of Mother’s Day gifts we’re coveting:
Above: Margot has been eyeing a pot of paper flowers from artist Livia Cetti of the Green Vase; her work is available from John Derian in NYC; contact the shop directly to see what they have in stock. (And see Margot’s tour of Livia’s house at Bloomsbury in the Bronx: At Home with Livia Cetti and Family.) Above: Some of us have been thinking a lot about sleepwear; Julie covets a pair of Navy Floral Pajamas by Scarlette Ateliers, a home linen collection made in New Delhi and designed by a Parisian; $190 from Makie in NYC. Above: One of our favorite independent shops, Germantown, NY, and NYC-based Alder & Co., has put together gift bundles for Mother’s Day; we especially like their Good Care Set #17, which includes a white enamel kettle, Mariage Frères green teabags, and linen gingham grey and dijon tea towel; $145. Above: “I love these teeny-tiny crackle bowls from a Barcelona maker—they’d be perfect for my mother, for corralling her signature stacks and stacks of rings,” Annie says. A set of two Snowflake Crackle Glazed Dishes is £30 from Ingredients LDN. Above: “Like everyone else sheltering at home, I’ve started making sourdough,” Fan says. “My boule doesn’t last long—our family of four eats it up within a couple of days, three at most. I’ve been looking for ways to keep the bread fresh, and these drawstring bags may be the minimalist, space-saving answer.” The 100 percent cotton Reusable Bread Bag from Dans Le Sac in Canada is $11.50. Above: Margot is coveting a 100 percent brushed cotton India Throw from Area Home. “We’re all obsessed with bedding right now,” she says. Above: “When I stayed at the Los Poblanos Inn in New Mexico not long ago, I bought their lavender hand salve,” Fan says. “It has such a soothing scent and really does the trick for dry skin. I keep it right next to our kitchen sink, and since I wash my hands so often now, I’m already in need of another jar. Plus, they recently came out with a new hand sanitizer.” The Los Poblanos Lavender Hand Sanitizer (above L) is $18 and the Los Poblanos Lavender Salve is $24 from Bon Boutique in Tucson. Above: Justine is a longtime Deborah Ehrlich fan; she’s coveting her Tea Light Hurricane Candle Holder; $300 from RW Guild. Above: Genius holders for “bits and bobs”: Containers from Hay, available in three sizes in many different tones of glass. Also available from MoMA Design Store.; prices start at $15. Above: Julie is hoping for a couple of Ecofaux Heirloom Rose Stems from Bloomist; $22 each.
