Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is one of those holidays that always seems to sneak up on me without me realizing just how soon it is, leaving me scrambling to pick out the perfect present for my wonderful mom. This year, fortunately, I was on top of my game, picking out a gift I really loved and even having it delivered more than a week early (yes, I am patting myself on the back). But if you’re like me practically every other year and are still frantically searching for the right gift that mom will totally love, don’t worry: I’ve got 13 great ideas for you. Check them out:

Clockwise from top left: Picnic basket by C. Wonder; lipstick in “Corail Incandescent” by Yves Saint Laurent; lip-print mug by Reiko Kaneko; garden tool set by Paper Source; beaded wrap bracelet by Bloom + Grace; printed picture frame on Shopbop; beauty gift set by Viktor & Rolf;  Living In Style by Rachel Zoe; herringbone throw by Serena & Lily; leather-strap watch by Burberry; mala bead necklace by Mala and Mantra; macaron stationery by Paper Source; studded sandals by Tory Burch.

I cannot get over how adorable that chevron-printed picnic basket is, and wouldn’t it make great gift if you actually used it for a Mother’s Day picnic brunch on Sunday? I also love both the Bloom + Grace bracelet and Mala and Mantra necklace because they have such great missions: Bloom + Grace gives vaccines to children for every purchase made, while Mala and Mantra works with a female co-op in the Philippines to help provide a safe work environment, sustainable income and empowerment for its female artisans. If you’re looking to splurge, that Burberry watch is a classic gift that will last a lifetime, and those Tory Burch sandals would be both comfortable and an instantly chic addition to any wardrobe. If you’re on a budget, a cute mug, pretty stationery and a ladylike lipstick will always do the trick, while that garden tool set is the perfect pick for any outdoorsy mom.
