To put it very, very mildly, it’s been a long year.
Thus, as Mother’s Day approaches, it’s safe to say that your mom, wife, grandma, aunt, mother of your child and any other maternal figures in your life all deserve a nice gift or two. Or ten. It’s why we’ve compiled this lengthy list of glorious goods the moms in your life will undoubtedly love this Mother’s Day. Seriously, get ready to hear her gush about what a phenomenal gift giver you are.
Below you’ll find everything she’ll need, from snazzy new outfits for her grand re-entry into society to astoundingly beautiful home goods and practical but still very pretty kitchenware she’ll be dying to show off — plus everything she needs to maintain her own health and wellness, along with lots of luxurious beauty products that’ll look darling on her vanity. We’ve even got gifts for the new and expectant mothers out there. So get to gifting, buddy.
This Mother’s Day, give the gift of Tiffany T1. Exquisitely crafted by Tiffany’s master craftspeople in 18k yellow, rose or white gold, the Tiffany T1 collection features head-turning diamonds set by hand into a complex honeycomb pattern, resulting in incredible radiance, texture and dimension.
You can’t go wrong with a pair of Jimmy Choos, and these slip-on suede pumps are seriously a dream. Available in a unique mossy green hue, this style works as a classy daytime heel or a night-on-the-town pump.
Coach is making a bit of a comeback, and the American-based leather goods brand’s Pillow Tabby Shoulder Bag is the star of its glow-up. Made from a super plush, incredibly soft Nappa leather, this in-demand bag is one she’ll wanna rest her head on (and honestly, she could.) The Pillow Tabby also features two detachable straps so she can carry it as a short shoulder bag or a crossbody, while the surprisingly spacious inside will fit her daily essentials perfectly.
Handmade and designed in the Hamptons, Out East Eyewear’s Willow shades are the perfect mix of trendy and retro with handcrafted rectangular tortoise acetate frames.
Made in Italy, this Chloe croc-embossed calfskin shoulder bag is a dainty yet luxurious accessory. It’s lined with beige suede, features a fold-over flap with a logo-engraved turn-lock fastening and is finished with a curb chain shoulder strap for a modern (but still totally unmistakably expensive) look.
A travel jewelry case is a life-saver, and this square zippered number with gorgeous monogramming from Mark & Graham is one she’ll carry with her forever. The functional case is thoughtfully designed to fit rings, necklaces and earrings neatly and safely thanks to a soft cushioned inside and multiple compartments. The textured vegan leather can be customized with eighteen different colors and three font personalization options.
Comfortable, cute and easy-to-clean. Thousand Fell’s Lace Up sneakers are all that, plus super sustainable and vegan. The shoe is made from recycled bottles, natural rubber and food waste components. She can even go sockless thanks to the sneaker’s breathable, anti-odor Aloe Vera liner that wicks away heat for cool, non-stinky feet.
A buttery-soft leather sandal she can sport on the go. With a trendy square toe, an easy-to-galavant-in heel, cushioned insole and breathable backless design, this style from Everlane is a must-have warm-weather shoe. Only caveat is you’ll have to pair it with a gift card to her pedicurist.
Of course this summer she needs an oversized sun hat to shield her glowing skin from those harmful rays. Alanui’s new San Antonio straw hat features a classic raffia design but with a fun bandana print detail that’ll match her new Jimmy Choo pumps.
A summertime dress to rule them all. Reformation’s Kia Dress balances the perfect amount of sex appeal and elegance with a full-length, form-fitting style, straight neckline and thick, comfortable straps. (Note: maybe save this one for your baby mama, not your actual mama.)
This breezy, abstract Kimono from lifestyle brand DIARRABLU makes for a chic bathing suit cover-up.

This hard-wearing but insanely good-looking trowel is ideal for her prized rose bushes, herb garden or various raised beds. Hand-forged by a father-and-son team in Japan’s Niigata Prefecture, this gardening tool isn’t just about looks, it’s one of a kind and built to last.

Each one of La Playa’s beachy candle vessels is hand-blown, offering a unique piece of decor. And while the candles smell great, the best part is after burning, that same (food-safe) vessel makes for a cute margarita glass.

You know the deal. Le Creuset’s iconic Dutch oven is much beloved for baking bread, stewing soups and braising various meats — but almost more important is how good it looks on stovetops (especially in this exclusive Sea Salt color.) We’re not saying you’ll get son/husband of the year for this gift but … you might.
