Rifle Paper Co. coral botanical art print
We love the whimsical nature of Anna Bond's illustrations, and this one is sure to spruce up any room in the house.
Perricone MD No Lipstick Lipstick SPF 15
This universally flattering shade gives a subtle rosy flush and goes on incredibly smooth.
Citizenry Primavera vase
Such a cute little trinket for her desk (give it with a planted succulent for extra points).
Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer
Let your mom say what she will about Kim Kardashian, but the fact remains she has great skin. This creamy pigment is a favorite of hers, and can be blended with moisturizer for a light foundation, too.
Baggu set of three totes
If she hasn't ditched plastic bags already, give her a poppy reason to do so.
Loft floral square silk scarf
You can't argue with 100 percent silk in pretty pink and blue. You can even show her 18 ways to tie it.
Ann Taylor floral drop earrings
Separately, floral and drop earrings are so hot right now. Together, they're a fashion home run (we have a feeling you might be borrowing these).
Hawkins New York printed tea towel
Here's something that will make inevitable spills a bit more tolerable.
Mango Saffiano-effect wallet
A bit of texture gives faux leather a high-end finish.
Five15 cat mom pin
As the product page says, "Somtimes 'Mom' just isn't enough."
Aquis Lisse Luxe hair towel
Woven from ultra-fine fibers, this game-changing towel dries hair with less friction than plain old cotton, which means minimal breakage and frizz.
Sam Edelman Verona espadrilles
Cute with mom jeans, no? (But really, everyone should own a pair of throw-on-and-go shoes that aren't sneakers.)
Uniqlo linen shirt
There is nothing chicer for when the weather warms up (see: Lauren Hutton), and the price is unbeatable. You could even buy two—they have tons of great colors!
Eve Lom Time Retreat hand treatment
Everything about this botanical-packed line is spa-like—Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan, FYI—and this light cream combats signs of aging with retinol while moisturizing. (If you can afford it, splurge for the Morning Time cleanser, which will transform her AM face wash into a luxurious ritual.)
