Small Home Indulgences
to Help You Live in the Present

In partnership with our friends at FTD

Think of the things you can’t live without, and you probably start thinking about the practical stuff—iPhones, laptops, a miracle does-it-all pot that renders a meal out of anything. But what often makes our days a little brighter, and therefore a little easier—are the things that lean toward indulgent. It’s the stuff that makes us feel good. Maybe it’s a bouquet that reminds us of our family or a wine glass that reminds us that work is over for the day. We’re quick to call these pieces extravagant, but we’d argue they’re necessities: reminders to find joy in the present.

    “I love getting flowers from my three-year-old daughter, Grace. My husband lets her pick out what she thinks I’ll like, and then she makes up wild stories about the fairies and trolls that live inside the bouquet. I think she has something special up her sleeve for Mother’s Day this year because she’s been asking about Thumbelina and what kind of flowers would make the best bed.”
