Diptyque Tam Dao Eau de Toilette Spray

Diptyque are best known for their candles but forget about making your home smell nice, mom’s got to smell right. Tam Dao, a sandalwood based fragrance, a personal favorite round here is as good as is gets, Eau de Toilette-wise. ($88)

HAY Plus 9 Lightweight Blanket

We’ve featured this one before and are still obsessed. Denmark’s HAY make as assortment of beautiful homewares including this 100% wool throw which seems to take its cue from Welsh blankets. Make sure to be clear that this is more over the sofa than over the knees, you don’t want this sweet gift to turn to be mistaken for an accessory for the elderly. ($340)


Postalco Wheel Printed Notebooks

Each one unique, Postalco offer this set of notebooks “imagining the patterns that a bicycle wheel covered in ink might leave on a giant canvas.” Featuring 1mm pin graph paper, and available in a top choice of colors, this will probably be one of those things she never writes in because she’s keeping it “for best.” ($26 each)



Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin

Gin. Mother’s ruin. What better way to say ‘I Love You.’ We’ve tested this one out ourselves and can confirm that this product of Germany’s Black Forest Distillers tastes as good as the bottle looks. Sweet, flowery, peppery, with bitter notes of cranberry, ensure a very merry Christmas with this choice of gift. ($56)
