The tiniest acts of love often feel the most valuable: making regular phone calls to ask how someone is feeling, taking a mundane task off of someone’s plate, being patient on difficult days. In short: the kinds of things moms do all the time. You can reciprocate with similar small gestures (if you’re reading this: call your mom!), but on Mother’s Day it’s also time to think bigger and treat the matriarchs in your life to something more indulgent. Some suggestions: a buttery leather tote, a dialed-up skincare routine, or a keepsake pair of LAGOS earrings she’ll get plenty of compliments on. Read on for 16 ways to celebrate the women who set “mom standards” very high.
