With nearly half the U.S. vaccinated, being able to celebrate mom’s big day in person is looking a little easier. But with COVID-19 cases on the rise in many states, travel still may not be an option, making this Mother’s Day a repeat of last year for many people. Whether you are spending the day with your mom or sending something to brighten her day, put some thought into it and look for a gift that’s really special and caters to her interests. HAY’s cordless mini lamp will add a chic touch to an outdoor dinner or even illuminate a spot in mom’s garden; or if you’re looking for a stylish touch, Éliou turns the classic freshwater pearl necklace into a hip summer statement with the addition of glass beads.
