Agent Provocateur No need for anyone to blush when the AP box is unwrapped. This Gisele short kimono from Agent Provocateur is sexy—but PG enough for the breakfast table.
Books & Books If you want to reassure Mom that she’s the best mother ever, get her a copy of Jessamine Chan’s debut novel, “The School for Good Mothers.” Available at Books & Books, this work of fiction brings up all of the feelings, judgements and emotions that come along with motherhood.
Bottega Veneta A robe may seem like an obvious choice for Mother’s Day—and that’s because all moms fantasize about spending a full day in one! Exceed her expectations with Bottega Veneta’s plush cotton terry intrecciato-print robe in the brand’s signature grass green.
Buccellati Behind on your push presents? Consider Buccellati’s Elio watch in 18k white gold and set with diamonds. The delicate bracelet features a 31-mm dial, Swiss quartz movement and even tells time.
Christofle There are great gifts for the woman who has everything, and then there’s Christofle’s MOOD sterling silver limited edition Haute Orfèvrerie. The sculptural objet—featuring 24 pieces of sterling silver cutlery—is like jewelry for the tabletop.
Davidor Is she constantly complaining that her golf ball–sized engagement ring is always getting in the way? Allow Davidor’s L’arc de Davidor 18k rose gold ring with palais diamonds to stand in as an eye-catching substitution.
Diptyque If Mom’s signature scent is a little dated, this may be your opportunity to help her level up. Give her a fragrance update with Diptyque’s new Do Son eau de toilette, inspired by cool sea breezes and fresh tuberose.
Fabiana Fillipi “She’s so hard to shop for…” That may be the case, but the job gets a lot easier with Fabiana Filippi’s raffia hat. The wide brim, elongated ribbon and classic style makes it perfect for moms of all ages.
Gianvito Rossi Don’t worry—they literally go with everything. Gianvito Rossi’s Minas ankle-wrap sandals in white not only match anything from jeans to sundresses, they give just the right amount of lift (3.25 inches) without killing her feet.
Graff We can’t promise that they’ll drown out the noise of screaming children, but they will help make her ears feel good. Graff’s Tilda’s Bow diamond stud earrings feature pave diamonds and white gold.
Harry Winston Not every woman loves flowers, but we’re pretty sure every woman would love these Sunflower diamond earrings from Harry Winston, featuring 18 round brilliant diamonds weighing in at a total of 3.74 carats.
Jacob & Co There are so many ways to show her how much she means to you. But if you’re stumped, allow us to suggest Jacob & Co.’s rose gold pink sapphire earrings from the Infinia collection, meant to capture the feeling of falling in love and encapsulating it in everlasting form.
Maria Tash She’s not a regular mom. She’s a cool mom. So, get her Maria Tash’s Invisible Set Diamond Star Threaded Stud Earring, designed to be worn as a single piercing. Or go ahead and get her two and make it a set. She won’t complain.
Marie France Van Damme Whether this is the first caftan in her closet or the 101st, she won’t be disappointed with the effortlessly chic Boubou from Marie France Van Damme. Featuring a palm print and made from washable silk satin, it will easily become her go-to.
Michael Aram Gift her this Michael Aram bud vase from the Cherry Blossom collection—complete with a rose marble slab base—and earn constant gold stars by bringing her a single flower to put in it each time you see her.
Morgenthal Frederics Everyone loves a Love bracelet, but for something truly one of a kind, there’s the Cartier Heart Diamond-Cut glasses. Exclusive to Morgenthal Frederics, the lenses are crafted and polished by hand, making each pair a unique piece of art.
Panerai It may not be your everyday timepiece, but she’s not your everyday lady. Panerai’s Luminor Due features a polished steel bezel and alligator strap, perfect for occasions that are as special as she is.
Prada If she’s been saying things like, “I wonder what Fido is getting me for Mother’s Day…” that means it’s on you. Consider Prada’s logo striped bucket hat. It’s great for dog walks and reminding her that you don’t have to birth something to be someone’s mom.
Rene Caovilla Step 1: Double-check her shoe size. Step 2: Make a dinner reservation. Rene Caovilla’s Supercleo embellished wrap sandals are definitely going to want to give her an excuse to get out of the house.
Salvatore Ferragamo She probably doesn’t need another black handbag. Okay, maybe she does need another black handbag, but she could also probably use something with a little more impact, and the Ferragamo Studio bag in the floral foulard print adds the perfect punch.
Santa Maria Novella Include a note about how Santa Maria Novella’s Rosa Gardenia perfume reminds you of your honeymoon on Lake Como—or that time you proposed on the Ponte Vecchio… or the babymoon you took to the Amalfi Coast… and if you haven’t taken her to Italy, perhaps get her more than one thing on this list.
Stella McCartney For the mom that’s on-the-go, may not always have time for a pedicure, but always manages to look put together—and still never forgets to bring her own reusable grocery bags to Whole Foods: Stella McCartney’s eco-conscious Gaia lace-up espadrilles.
