ANH SUNDSTROM of 9 to 5 Chic
"My favorite gift for Mother's Day is to enjoy a slow, easy morning with a family breakfast in bed. A flaky warm croissant, small glass of orange juice, and a piping hot latte are all I need! It's such a wonderfully relaxing way to start a day filled with love," shares Sundstrom. It may sound like a simple idea, but as any mom will tell you, actions speak louder than words. So show you care with this nice gesture that encourages her to relax and hang out in bed a little longer today. Try one of these recipes.
ATHENA CALDERONE of Eye Swoon
"I think it's rather safe to assume that I am the cook in the family, but on Mother's Day the kitchen is Victor and Jivan's domain," Calderone tells us. "Their skills are confined to eggs—usually scrambled with ham—a family favorite. I know it seems silly, but it really is the singular day of the year that they cook for me, and I look forward to it with crazy amounts of swoony joy! I also adore my Jennifer Fisher rose gold cuff with the date Jivan was born set in diamonds." When in doubt, customizable jewelry is something that'll elevate their look while also serving as a reminder of your love.
AMBER LEWIS of Amber Interiors
If you were thinking of gifting her something homemade this year, you're onto something. As Lewis says, "My fave Mother's Day gift was an 'I love mama' picture my daughter Gwynnie drew for me last year and my husband had framed. Seems corny, but I literally cherish it and will forever keep anything that she makes me. This year she has memorized a song in school and sings it to me. She even makes a little heart with her hands… It melts me!"
JEANNE CHAN of Shop Sweet Things
"Aside from receiving the perfect Clare V. leather clutch from my husband, my all-time favorite gift has to be my first hand-drawn Mother's Day card from my daughters. Even though it was mostly scribbles with macaroni glued to it, the thought of them making me a card was just the sweetest. It will forever be a keepsake," says Chan, echoing the idea that making something from scratch and expressing yourself in a card will always make your mom happy while also saving your wallet. It's a win-win.
EMILY JACKSON of Ivory Lane
Looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift for a new or expectant mom? Jackson has you covered. "The greatest gift I ever received on Mother's Day was when I was pregnant with my first child, Capri. My husband gave me the sweetest little outfit and blanket that we could bring her home from the hospital in. It was my first real Mother's Day!"
KELLEY LILIEN of Mrs. Lilien
"My favorite Mother's Day gift just arrived! A very fortuitous package from Mrs. Burch filled with a gorgeous tote, a luxurious perfume gift set of her latest signature scent, and finally a custom pair of Tory Burch sandals with my children's initials on them! Um, wow!" To make your mom as excited as Lilien, consider creating a similarly elevated goodie bag by filling a tote bag or large purse with décor, cosmetics, or stylish accessories.
