Tool & Tack Mother's Day Gift Set

I am really excited to announce our latest gift box, the Tool & Tack Mother's Day gift set! Featuring the work of Leah Duncan, Paloma's Nest, and Miss Natalie, the set comes packaged in a 11" x 7" x 3" wood crate, wrapped with a floral illustration by Leah, raffia ribbon, and a hand stamped leather gift tag, making it ready to give immediately upon arrival.

The Tool & Tack Mother’s Day gift box features a ceramic tiny text “I love you” bowl from Paloma’s Nest,

a hand painted wooden apple box from Miss Natalie,

and an organic cotton tea towel from Leah Duncan, measuring 18" x 30".

We only have a limited quantity of these available, so I'd advise snagging yours today to make sure we don't run out! I curated this set with the idea of making the perfect Mother's day gift, but this gift works for just about anyone that you want to say, "thanks, I love you."

We were thrilled to see the set featured on Design*Sponge last week. Someone who will remain nameless may have shouted rather loudly when the page loaded.
