In addition to the cards, flowers and brunch this Mother’s Day, honor mom (or the mother figure in your life) with gifts of the sartorial variety. A fashionable present that’s as chic and exceptional as she is is a must.
Here we cover a range from stylish accessories and personalized jewelry to DIY beauty treatments. For the trendy mom, Louis Vuitton’s highlighter hued fur bag charm is sure to delight as are the strappy Paramour pumps from Tamara Mellon; Meghan Markle recently wore a pair on an outing in London.
If mom is more classic in her style choices, try a structured bag from Freya in a deep burgundy shade or timeless and brilliant diamond stud earrings from Beladora.
And what mom doesn’t love jewelry personalized with her child’s or children’s birth date, name or astrological sign? Garland Collection’s date ring or pendants from Ariel Gordon and Bare Collection can all be customized to ensure mom wears a piece showing her family ties everywhere she goes.
