Mother's Day is this weekend! Like other procrastinators, I am left scrambling with the same dilemma that I run into every year: What do I buy a mom who truly deserves the world? Of course, a gift may not be totally necessary, as you can always show your love in other ways (Hello, Facetime!) but we know moms - sometimes they just want to be spoiled with something truly special.
So we poured through thousands of items and picked our favorites for all the mamas we know in our lives. Welcome to the Ultimate Mother's Day Gift Guide for Every Mama.
For the Trendy Mama:
This is for the most fashionable mama of all mamas - she's the one you text when you have a fashion conundrum. She might be your own mom or your mama friend who is obsessed with the latest. She effortlessly pulls off the hardest of trends whilst multi-tasking her kids schedule and killing it at work. She's the one that walks into school orientation night and all the other moms turn heads because they're checking out her latest Louis Vuitton Giant Monogram Tote, the Bottega Veneta sandals or her vintage Chanel earrings.
Vintage Chanel Earrings
will be her favorite piece! This mama loves being unique and one-of-a-kind earrings are just up her alley.
Nothing makes more of a statement than floating into a room with a jaw-dropping Zimmerman Dress
Subtly pulling out a Louis Vuitton Giant Monogram Makeup Bag
to fix your make-up is one way to show that even the smallest things this mama owns is on trend.
Gucci Top Handle Bag
will be her mini bag of the season. Top handle? Check. Bamboo detail? Check. On trend? Check.
These Rare Vintage Jean Paul Gautier Sunglasses
are a show-stopper. People will ask where she got it from and she can casually drop some fashion cred with four words "vintage Jean Paul Gautier". Boom.
For the Soccer Mom:
For the mom hauling kids back and forth from soccer games to chess tournaments (and don't forget the karate and ballet classes too!), this mom needs to be hands free and agile. Loading up groceries while dangling a toddler on your hip and simultaneously negotiating with the older two to stop fighting over the iPad requires next-level ninja skills. So let's give mom what she really needs: one less thing to think about.
Coach Waist Bag
is large enough to hold all the essentials yet is the perfect hands-free bag for the on-the-go mom.
Perfect gift to give this mama some stylist shade is this super cute Gucci Hat
These stunning Tiffany & Co earrings
are easy to throw on, keep on and forget you have it on. Understated cool and non-dangly (ideal for grabby toddlers), these earrings will be a hit for the busy mama.
For all those outdoor activities, these Chanel Sunglasses
are perfect amount of shade.
For the New Mama:
Welcome to motherhood, new mama! Becoming a new mama is a beautiful yet new and very exhausting phase of her life. Give this mama some extra love during this time. She may not feel like old self - the stylish, full of energy woman - as she is recovering from delivering the gift of life so let's give her something that may make her new self feel a little closer to her old self.
Forget the big bulky diaper bags from Eddie Bauer. Give her something chic and utilitarian with this Gucci Diaper Bag
This mama deserves the world. She just gave human life. Show how much you love her (hint: to infinity) with this gorgeous rose gold Tiffany Necklace
Besides coffee, every new mama needs a giant pair of shades like this pair Celine Sunglasses
to hide those I-haven't-slept-in-2-months eyes.
For the Retired Mama:
To the mamas who worked so hard and are finally getting the break they deserve, the retired mama could use some no-frills chicness. From taking up hobbies like gardening or discovering new passions like learning the piano, this is for the mothers who truly deserves this time off and some extra pampering.
Understated yet super chic Mansur Gavriel bag
is the perfect carry-all to throw in her essentials - the book from her new book club, her knitting supplies, her planner (because she may be retired but she's busier than ever!).
You'll want to borrow these gorge Chanel Mules
you gift this mama. Easy slide-ons are perfect with its low heel and classic look.
Louis Vuitton Monogram Trousse Toilette 23
is a great gift. Whether she uses this for her new skincare regimen or her knitting supplies, this may be the chicest way to store all her knick-knacks.
This classic David Yurman Bracelet
is one she'll wear forever. Timeless and chic, this would be our mom's personal favorite.
