We love the idea of giving mum a gift that will be put on regular rotation and what better than something she will set eyes on every single day? Whether she’s setting food on the table, kicking back on the sofa or simply lounging in bed, she’ll be constantly reminded of you and your thoughtfulness (that’s the goal isn’t it?). Ahead, our picks to source out the most inventive homeware gifts for the special woman in our life.
Bungalow 55 is a definite stop for homewares that exude a Hamptons-chic vibe.
