The best gifts we can give often aren’t the gifts themselves. It’s more about the intention behind the gift and what the gift can bring — whether that’s a sense of indulgence, a moment to truly relax, or a dose of inspiration.
This Mother’s Day, we’re placing the focus on experience-based giving. Whether it’s a mindful activity or an object that encourages a sense of pause, the GOODLAND team has compiled a few of our top picks for gifting and experiencing.

Each luxurious item from Wonder Valley features powerful and versatile extra virgin Californian olive oil, and are a beautiful addition to any ritual. Their hinoki bath set includes hinoki bath tea, hinoki soap, a wooden soap rest and a washcloth — everything needed for a restorative soak.
