Sending flowers is a wonderful sentiment – in fact, I think they’re delicious – but that gift arrives with an expiration date. A couple weeks pass by and into the trash they go, leaving you with a generic glass or metal vase (or none at all if you plunged your bouquet into the nearest beer stein). A versatile gift option that combines the love of flora and form might be the better option for the petal passionate people in your life.
Delicate, feminine, and with a whisper of color, the Aurora Vase collection from object-savvy Hawkins New York (everything they make and curate is amazing btw) is a glass gem worthy of display on it’s own or accented with a few of your favorite scented stems. Inspired by the Northern Lights of Iceland, these pieces are hand-blown and sourced ethically through fair trade in India. Colors such as Sky, Blush, Amber, and Smoke allow for a touch of hue while being offered in two shapes – Pill and Sphere – to mix and match.
Mom was given something similar as a thank you gift from a friend years ago, and she recently stumbled upon these in a beautiful home goods shop in Dallas. Perfect for events like a housewarming gift, weddings, or birthdays, the Aurora Vase collection is a charming way for your best buds to display the very best buds.
