From Earth Day to Mother’s Day, spring is still happening whether we’re ready for it or not. Perhaps these spring holidays are more special than ever this year — we’re gifting Mother Earth with what it virtually an extended vacation and have more time to spend with our own mothers or children than ever before (If we’re lucky. All our thanks to essential workers!).
We’ve filled The Shop with a spring curation of useful tools, books and home goods to enjoy while at home, as well as great gift ideas for moms — or just those who are isolated at home and could use a pick-me-up.
Explore the full curation below and over in the The Shop. Here are notes on a few of my favorites…
+ This unexpected modern lamp from Brooklyn designer, Virginia Sin. If you’re looking for a simple room upgrade while home, this is it.
+ Instead of sending flowers this Mother’s Day, consider sending a plant instead — it’s more sustainable and will last longer. One exception? This divine-smelling jasmine bunch that will scent an entire room.
+ A sustainable self-care product that’s still stylish and thrilling? Odacite’s new 552M shampoo bar, named in honor of the 552 Million plastic shampoo bottles that end up in landfills every year.
+ I get a small thrill out of rows of white plates, clear glasses and unglazed ceramics in the kitchen. However, I’d gladly make room for this rainbow of watercolor tumblers to light up a long table once we can all entertain again. A great gift to send your favorite hostess who just can’t wait to host a dinner this summer.
+ Haven’t worn jeans in weeks? We get it. WFH life is made for joggers and t-shirt dresses. That is, unless we’re talking about Citizens of Humanity’s head-to-toe jumpsuit that is surprisingly comfortable, perfect for wearing out on lone grocery runs, and, later, first meet-ups with friends this summer. Add a set of Citizen’s cotton masks to your order and gift one to all those long lost friends.
+ I’ll never take access to fresh produce for granted again. Sign yourself up for this monthly fruit delivery service for chic, seasonal and edible centerpieces. You may not know what day of the week it is, but these deliveries will definitely remind you that it’s spring.
