Mark your calendars and program your smartphones to high alert. Mother’s Day is next Sunday. Honor a mom, wife, grandma (or any other leading lady who has taken you under her wing) with a thoughtfully-selected gift. Ideas abound: a Chanel “Ladies First” clutch handbag, Stella McCartney super hero top, a lip-print surfboard by local designer Kelly Wearstler. A limited-edition locket from jewelry designer Alexis Bittar, decked out with a favorite photograph, has something in it for you — the guarantee that you will always be close to her heart. Here’s info on those and other picks worthy of the first lady in your life.
