THOUGHTFUL GIFTS MOM WILL NEVER KNOW YOU GOT LAST-MINUTE
Susanne Pruitt and Shelley Callaghan
Co-founders of the luxury (and just downright dreamy) home and body fragrance brand Antica Farmacista, Susanne Pruitt and Shelley Callaghan are moms, successful businesswomen and delightful human beings. They spent some time telling us all about their Mother’s Day traditions, the benefits of a good bottle of wine and what’s new that has them excited.
THE BEST MOM’S DAY GIFTS AND KEYS TO RELAXATION
Moms know best, so we asked some of the coolest ones we know to give us the skinny on personal style, what motherhood means to them and, of course, what’s on their wish list as May 10 approaches. See all the featured moms in our series on The Thread.
As the founder and creative director of AERIN and the style and image director at Estée Lauder, Aerin Lauder wears a lot of hats. Oh, let’s throw wife and mother of two into the mix. We’re not quite sure how she manages all of that with such stylish aplomb, but she did take a few minutes away from it all to give The Thread a glimpse into her life as a mom who’s long on to-dos and short on time (read: every mom out there)—and what makes it all worthwhile.
London-based makeup artist and mother of 1.5 (son Flynn, pictured above, is 4; baby #2 is due in June), Charlotte Tilbury has long been on the industry’s short list for styling top-tier cover shoots, fashion editorials and ad campaigns around the world. A flame-haired beauty herself, Charlotte counts Kate Moss, Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow among her loyal clients and friends, relationships bolstered no doubt by a common bond of having young children. In honor of Mother’s Day, we caught up with the endlessly energetic, effervescent industry star to get her refreshingly honest—and uniquely British—take on being a modern mum.
Cheri Botiz, our National Beauty and Fragrance Director, shares her top five favorite Mother’s Day Gifts.
Hello everyone! I wanted to share with you 5 of my favorite beauty and fragrance gifts for Mother’s Day that I know any mom would love—I know I would!
1 – Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne ($55-$110). Every time I smell this fragrance, it makes me happy. Mom will definitely get compliments with this one.
2 – Viktor & Rolf ‘Flowerbomb’ Extrait de Parfum ($350). This gift is an exquisite customer favorite. Any mom would be very happy with this long-lasting, floral concentrate.
3 – Antica Farmacista ‘Champagne’ Home Ambiance Perfume ($62-$92). Everyone loves to walk into a beautifully scented home. This fragrance is so unique and vibrant. Perfectly fresh.
4 – I Love New York Mother’s Day by Bond No. 9 Fragrance ($175). I love this for the bottle alone! It’s so fun to have on the vanity, and the tangerine scent is intoxicating.
5 – Diptyque Scented Candles ($60-$90). I could not pick just one; these are all wonderful. Pick up multiple candles and cluster together for a gorgeous statement on your dining table.
