When Erin and I created the concept/lifestyle/identity of “Mommi” back in summer of 2017, little did we know how much it would take off. I have had to explain what a Mommi is to a hairstylist, coworkers, a flight attendant, and actual Mommis. Some people understand instantly. Some people need a diagram, which I am happy to provide. I field questions about what and who is and is not Mommi on a semi-weekly basis. Mommi has become my part-time job. So, naturally, I am here to tell you what to gift the Mommis in your life. Or, if you are a Mommi yourself, here are the things you should write on your holiday wishlist, handwritten on personalized stationery I assume (also, call me!).
This is a staple Mommi Casual look that can be worn to brunch, book club, the wine bar, a beach. The satchel is big enough to hold at least one of the Neapolitan Novels. The gold cuff can clink gently against your glass of pinot grigio. And, of course, our official Mommi t-shirt assuages any doubts about your Mommi status, meaning no one will have to text ME to ask if YOU are a Mommi so thank you for doing the work for me.
Every Mommi’s home must have the three C’s: candles, crystals, ceramics. I have also decided that Mommis have random sea-inspired watercolor works in their homes, because it feels right. When in doubt: MONOGRAM.
Think “picnic on the beach” or “cozy night by a fireplace” or “wine for dinner” — these are all acceptable meal concepts for Mommis.
