A Special Something:
Objects That Refine and Delight
This Mother’s Day, give a gift that stands out for its exquisite craftsmanship, from a finely woven scarf that displays the handiwork of Mexican artisans to a trio of beautifully wrapped Marseille soaps infused with enchanting scents. Look to Scandinavian simplicity for enduring forms such as Skultuna of Sweden’s brass tealight holders and a timeless take on the signet ring from Oslo-based Tom Wood. Or wrap up the world by bestowing a book: we suggest Swans, Assouline’s glamorous look back at the pre-smartphone Jet Set.
