AIMEE LAGOS

Hygge & West: Tell us about the mom your gift choices would be perfect for and the pattern you paired them with.

Aimee Lagos: My gifts are all geared towards boy moms, like I am. I chose to pair them with Wood (Gold), which is what we’re using at my house in the boys’ bathroom. As the mother of boys, I’ve had to be very conscious about creating a space that reflects my style through a slightly more masculine lens so it’s also appealing to the three men with whom I share my home. I’m definitely not a girly-girl, but I also can’t help but be drawn to pretty things! Similarly, Christiana and I have had to be very intentional about ensuring that we have enough masculine patterns in our collection. I’ve always loved how this pattern is boldly graphic but maintains an organic feel. It’s a great choice for the pattern-loving (or, in my case, pattern-tolerating) boys in your life.

As a mom of boys, you will probably watch a lot more sporting events than you ever thought possible. The chair I chose allows you to sit comfortably without having to lug yet another massive, heavy thing around. My friend and I first saw someone with one of these at a soccer tournament, and from our reaction, you’d think that we’d seen a unicorn.

When my boys were young, I needed both hands free at all times because both of them always seemed to want to run into traffic. At the same time. In opposite directions. This belt bag is a chic hands-free option.

Boys really keep you on your toes, so you may as well do all that running around in style (and comfort), and the shoes I selected tick both of those boxes.

I also added in bath bubbles, 'cause momma needs to relax. I’ve always loved Kai —it smells like Hawaii to me—so it’s a bath and a mini vacation in one.

Christiana got me one of these candles because, well, there are a lot of boy smells in our house. Not only was it hilarious, but also it smelled delicious, so I try to keep a stash of these around at all times.

Lastly, I feel like this mug might be self explanatory. After many (17!) years of parenting, I’ve found that it’s much easier to reach a state of acceptance, especially with regards to things you can’t control. Ultimately, you can’t control your kids—you can love them and try to parent them as best you can. This gift is also appropriate because coffee.

H&W: What do you love most about your mom?

AL: Growing up, my mom was somewhat strict with my sister and me, so it’s been really fun to see how different she is as a grandma. She’s just madly in love with those boys and is somewhat of a pushover when it comes to them, much to everyone’s surprise. She’s a wonderful mom, and I love seeing how much she enjoys being a grandma. The boys are very lucky to have her.

H&W: What's your favorite part of being a mom?

AL: Now that my kids are older (17 and 15), I love being able to have actual conversations with them. We’re getting glimpses of who they will become when they grow up and it’s so interesting and gratifying. Just recently I realized that we’ll have a longer relationship with our boys as adults than as children, and while it’s a little bittersweet, it’s also exciting to be transitioning into this new phase of our lives.

H&W: Do you have any special Mother's Day traditions? How do you plan to celebrate this year?

AL: My older son was born on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, so my family usually visits and we celebrate Mother’s Day and his birthday in the same weekend. I just discovered a new (to me) greenhouse, so I’m hoping to spend at least part of Mother’s Day planting our vegetable garden. Last summer our kitchen was being remodeled, so we didn’t do as much gardening as usual and I am excited to get back to it.

CHRISTIANA COOP

Hygge & West: Tell us about the mom your gift choices would be perfect for and the pattern you paired them with.

Christiana Coop: I choose a variety of goodies made in England for my mom as I know she’d love them all and they’d make her think of her childhood in England. So this roundup is for all the English mums and/or anglophiles! I paired these gifts with Nethercote (Blue). It’s a very little known fact that we named this pattern after my grandad’s home in Yorkshire, England. As a little girl, I thought his old, brick two-story home and manicured, lush, green gardens were so magical; so very different from where I lived in New Mexico. Although, after visiting recently, I realize it was a fairly average-sized home and garden not quite like what is depicted in the pattern. It sure would be nice to see more through the eyes of our younger selves.

H&W: What do you love most about your mom? 

CC: I love my mom for the endless and unconditional love she’s always shown to me and all her family. I can, and do, talk to my mom about every single thing and she never judges me, betrays my confidence, or loves me less. We also laugh relentlessly about the silliest things and always have lots of fun together.

H&W: What's the best piece of advice your mother ever gave you?

CC: This isn’t her best advice ever, but the most recent advice she gave was as I was debating whether to keep a puppy I’d been fostering. She suggested I ask myself whether this was a puppy I would choose from a kennel. The answer was no, which made me feel confident about giving that puppy up to her new owner and waiting for the perfect one for me. Which I did.

H&W: Do you have any special Mother's Day traditions? How do you plan to celebrate this year?

CC: We don’t have any special Mother’s Day traditions as it’s been so long since we were together for the holiday and it’s a bit of “Hallmark holiday” in our family. But I do call and usually am able to remember to send a card or little something in the mail. Luckily, my dad steps up for us kids and spoils my mom that day.

MELISSA ANDERSEN

Hygge & West: Tell us about the mom your gift choices would be perfect for and the pattern you paired them with.

Melissa Andersen: This year will be my first ever Mother's Day after the birth of my daughter, Siena, in December, so I chose gifts for a new mom. Most of these gifts focus on things that have been important to me in my first few months of motherhood: sentimentality, comfort, and convenience. The necklace was a gift I received from my husband for my birthday this year, and mine has my initial, my husband's initial, and my daughter's initial. I can add more initials as we have more kids, which I love. The Mama and Mini sweatshirts are just adorable, and the frame is perfect for those newborn photos. The Moses basket is a great way to keep baby nearby in those early days, as is the ring sling. The mug, blanket, and lavender are some of my favorite ways to find luxury in the rare quiet moments of these hectic, but fleeting days.

I paired all of these with Otomi (Taupe) since that's the paper we have hanging in Siena's nursery, so that pattern will always hold a special place in my heart. And isn't that what the best designs do—conjure memories and feelings we never want to forget?

H&W: What do you love most about your mom? 

MA: There's so much to love about my mom, but one of my favorite things is our shared love for interior design and art. My mom was an artist who later in life switched career paths to become an interior designer, and it was her courage to do so that gave me confidence to always chase my dream, even if it seems risky at the time. My mom has also become the absolute best grandmother in the world to my baby, as I knew she would, and I love seeing their bond grow and deepen. They are both so lucky to have each other.

H&W: What's your favorite part of being a mom?

MA: This is hands-down the toughest job on the planet, but it is absolutely the most rewarding one, too. I find such immense joy in watching my daughter grow and learn new things which, at this age, feels like every day. We struggled with infertility before having Siena, so she truly is our miracle baby. There is simply nothing I love more in this world than seeing my daughter's face light up when I enter the room, or feel her little hands and face snuggle into me. I know these days won't last forever, so I'm cherishing every single second of them.

H&W: Do you have any special Mother's Day traditions? How do you plan to celebrate this year?

MA: Mother's Day is always spent with family, doing what we do best—hanging out, laughing, and eating! This year, however, things will be a little more low key, with just me, my husband, and my daughter celebrating my first Mother's Day. I don't know exactly what's in store, but as long as I have those two with me, I'll love every second of it.

OLA SUPERNAT

Hygge & West: Tell us about the mom your gift choices would be perfect for and the pattern you paired them with.

Ola Supernat: My mom and I live about 5,500 miles apart, so my selections are for a mom you don’t get to see very often—items you can share and bond over and that make you feel closer (distance-wise) than you actually are. Read the same book and gush over or diss it together when you FaceTime; we always end up learning something new about each other. While you are chatting, why not enjoy a bit of pampering together with a face mask? Or send mom some of your favorite local items, like chocolate or a cozy blanket, so she can experience a part of your life? My mom loves photos, so I know she would really appreciate a photo book that documents our recent adventures. And when you plan the next trip to see each other, this ultra cozy travel kit will be perfect for mom.

I picked Rosa (Indigo) because reminds me of a beautiful garden. My mom loves flowers and gardening; that was definitely something we did a lot together when I lived at home. I’m pretty sure she had to make me help her plant veggies and flowers or pull weeds, but now I find working on my own garden extremely enjoyable and gratifying and I have her to thank for it.

H&W: What do you love most about your mom?

OS: She’s strong and compassionate. She’s always up for adventure and giggles. And she makes the best food.

H&W: What's the best piece of advice your mother ever gave you?

OS: Be kind and have fun.

H&W: Do you have any special Mother's Day traditions? How do you plan to celebrate this year?

OS: When I was little, I made my mom a handmade gift every year—the most notable was a hand-written “newspaper” where every article was about her. I haven’t lived at home (or on the same continent as my mom!) since I was 16, so we never developed any grown-up traditions. I will be seeing her in London in June for a long weekend—though not specifically Mother’s Day, we will definitely celebrate being together with lots of walking around the many parks, good food, and laughs.
