Tell Mom how much you love her with a gift

Mothers will tell you the best gifts are heartfelt cards from their children. But who wouldn’t appreciate a thoughtful gift along with that card? As for choosing the right gift – you know what they say, mother knows best.

So here we've focused on a selection of style-driven pieces designed and created by moms. It’s a twofer: You can choose a gift for your wife, mother, sister or friend and support a mother-powered business on the holiday meant to celebrate them.

The most classic way to say “I love you/thank you/sorry for everything between 11 to 18 years old” is jewelry. So consider the detailed birdcage earrings from the New York-based mother-daughter team behind Of Rare Origin.

Those who are jewelry-minded but on a budget can also take a look at Los Angeles jeweler and designer Maya Brenner’s brand new line of wildly chic note cards from Paper Chase Press.

Or go for a more hands-on approach with a gift certificate to Amy Rae Aesthetics. Rae, the L.A. facialist (and mother of three), is known among celebrities for her work that illuminates while eliminating the need for any sort of Instagram filter.

Looking for further accessories for pampering? Try Julep’s universally flattering Apricot Nude lip balm, Stark Frontier’s luxury-in-a-bottle body oil and Bonpoint’s hyper-moisturizing hand cream (best served with the brand’s sophisticated toiletry bag).

If actual clothing is her thing, consider gifting iconic statement pieces including the fringe-front sweater (Rachel Roy), the perfect denim jacket (the Great’s Emily Current and Meritt Elliott) or a high-style fanny pack from Clare V. These are luxe yet practical gifts from some of L.A’.s most fashionable moms.
