“Moms work so hard so I like to treat my mom to a massage or facial and some nice candles for some R&R.

“One of my favorite ways to treat myself is with a really good face oil.

“Mother Day or Father’s Day afternoon tea, served on the butterfly table cloth with napkin rings. Couple it with an amazing selection of herbal and black teas of your choice. My favorite? Tetley tea, the British blend,” says multi award-winning actress and Broadway star Catherine Zeta-Jones who recently launched her Casa Zeta-Jones collection.
“I am one of those people who is always in the kitchen, and this set of tools is literally everything I love in a set of kitchen tools: bright colors, stacking, and utility. Besides the egg smasher, which vegans don't need (I'll find another use for it!), this is such an awesome gift for a cooking mama or papa!” says Mayim Bialik, star of The Big Bang Theory, neuroscientist, and author of soon to be released book Boying Up: How to Be Brave, Bold and Brilliant.
“Collection by Michael Strahan Westbury 25 Inch Luggage. The smallest bag in the collection is the perfect size to travel with. Big enough to fit all your important travel items but small enough to not hold you back!” says former NFL player, Emmy-winning TV star, and successful entrepreneur, Michael Strahan.
“One of the best gifts I ever received was a deep tissue massager. It has literally become a game-changer for me! I spend a lot of time at my desk and rarely have time to book into a spa for a proper massage. So I love that I can do it myself, whether I am in the office, at home, or on a plane. I always have mine with me when I travel to get rid of any knots and muscle tension that build up over a long flight. As a mom, I think this is something any parent would love to receive!” says Huda Kattan, founder of Huda Beauty.
“Beverly Beach by Dorit swimsuit or a beach bag! It’s a MUST for every woman! The bikini one pieces are so chic, modern, and effortless. And the bags fit all the essentials!” says TV personality and designer, Dorit Kemsley who recently wrapped the 8th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“The best most precious gifts you can give are time and experiences. I give the gift of passion and purpose through experiences for vulnerable children. $20 can feed a child for a month or much more and you can name the project you want to affect for children through the charity I am on the board of,” says Rachel Roy, a fashion designer and author of Design Your Life: Creating Success Through Personal Style book.
“Framebridge. I love framing unexpected, special mementos that have meaning, especially for a Mother's Day gift. It could be as simple as the menu card from a special celebration or a vintage scarf or textile from your travels together. These things so often end up stuck away in a drawer, so why not frame them instead? It will make for a very thoughtful gift for mom,” says Nate Berkus, interior designer, TV personality, and author of two New York Times best-selling books Home Rules and The Things That Matter.
“Moms are usually so busy keeping their daughters in check or making sure their boys behave that they almost NEVER take care of their skin. Well hold your heels, I SWEAR by Tulura Natural face healing oils. The sets come in a simple serum and oil for ALL skin types. Mama Mai has been aging backward since she's discovered this gem!” says TV personality, fashion expert and co-host on Fox’s talk show The Real.
“The Hurom Slow Juicer. This juicer is the absolute best! As a mom, you have to stay on top of your energy, and you have to live a healthy lifestyle! This juicer is a game-changer. Make your green juice and conquer every day head on! It is the absolute best gift for a mom!” says Belgian beauty, Rose Bertram, who is best known for being featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issues.

“Natura Bissé. New skincare for Mom to make her feel pampered & luxurious. There are so many collections to choose from, I think she’ll be happy with anything,” says professional Salsa dancer and actress Jaina Lee Ortiz who currently plays Andy Herrera on ABC’s new drama series Station 19.
"The Boyfriend fragrance is my favorite, and it's the only Boyfriend of mine I'll share with my mom! It’s the perfect mix of 'masculine' golden amber and musk notes with the 'feminine' dark plum, vanilla, and night blooming jasmine," says actress, Kate Walsh who currently plays Olivia Baker on Netflix’s hit series 13 Reasons Why.
“Nowadays, I think experiences are more valuable and enduring than "things" So my choices are very much influenced by that. The Meisterstuck Platinum Coated 149 Fountain Pen from Montblanc. Not so much an experience, but certainly a way of documenting those experiences in an elegant, timeless way. The resurgence in the fountain pen is just another welcome example of the analogue world pushing back against its digital replacement. The connections that using such a beautiful instrument makes between the brain and the hand is unique,” says Outlander and Preacher actor, Graham McTavish, who will be playing a secret character in the upcoming movie, Aquaman (out later this year).
