What better way to honor your mother this year than with one of these extra special tokens? Gift her one of these and she’ll be forced to pick you as the favorite child.

She’ll throw it in a beach tote or take it out at night - this foldover clutch is timeless French girl chic meets right-on-trend lavender pretty.

The Hat Of Summer
This straw fedora is great because it won’t ruin when you pack it. It’s fold-able and the perfect solution for why she has to buy a new hat on every trip. From walking around the city to relaxing on the beach, it’s a necessity just in time for summer.
Her New Favorite Jacket
This canvas jacket is a great gift because not only is it seasonless in our eyes, it goes with just about everything. It’s sophisticated and feminine with the loose fitting peplum, but still edgy and cool with the frayed hem. Trust me when I say she’ll be obsessed with this.
Flowers To Brighten Her Day
These gorgeous blooms will brighten up her day and her kitchen. If you’re in the Bay Area, LA or NYC you’re in luck! BloomThat does same day delivery, no joke! Not that we recommend waiting until the last minute, but if you do, this company can save you. If your mom is outside of these cities, you’ll need to order in advance.
A Stand-Out Carry-On
Since giving her vacation might be out of reach, give her something to inspire her to book one. We can’t get enough of Away luggage and this aluminum carry-on will literally last forever. You can even add a personalized monogram to seal the deal!
Cool Mom Sunglasses
Sure, she has her go-to designer sunglasses but she needs a cooler, edgy pair to throw on when she’s feelin’ it. These under $100 glasses are just that. The rimless aviators and colored lenses will be the most exciting surprise.
Fun Workout Leggings
Since we’re just weeks away from summer she’s probably doing daily pilates and cardio. She will be so excited to show off these cute Tory Sport leggings to her girlfriends, they might even inspire two-a-days.
A Summer Scent
A French fragrance will never disappoint. This one will take her on a long relaxing beach walk - it’s beautiful, light and breezy.
Modern Drop Earrings
These earrings will update any look. They are modern yet classic and make just the right amount of statement.
A Gorgeous Bottle Of Bubbly
A bottle of champagne that also makes the perfect centerpiece? She will love it. This floral bottle of Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque 2007 is something that will look so pretty on her bar cart and be there when she needs to take the edge off after a long week.
A Helping Hand
A personal assistant is the tech accessory she never knew she needed. It’s also so easy to use that she won’t be intimidated by the advanced technology. So instead of calling you to ask how to connect her phone to bluetooth, she can just ask Google. (it’s sort of a present for the both of you)
