Sometimes you just have to pull out all the stops for your mom. Maybe you just got a big promotion, or maybe your mom isn’t shy about appreciating the finer things in life (it is Taurus season, after all). Whether she prefers her creature comforts in the form of Egyptian cotton sheets or an animal-printed silk scarf, you’ll find something for her in our guide to the fanciest Mother’s Day gifts. (We’ve got a more budget-minded list here, too.)

For the Mom Who Loves Art

Double Sangle Scarf 90

An Hermès scarf that looks like it could be two Hermès scarves? It’s not quite a two-for-one deal, but it’s something any gallery-loving mom will appreciate.

For the Mom Who Glows From the Inside Out

La Mer The Miraculous Glow Set

This handy set is as especially good gift if you know your mom wouldn’t buy La Mer for herself.

For the Mom Who Reads Between the Lines

Tiffany & Co. Infinity Bracelet

A small reminder of your infinite love for her.

For the Mom Who Deserves More Than Flowers

Alison Lousada The Fyorir Vase

This elegant vase is just the thing to show off a creative arrangement. She can use it as an objet d’art, too.

For the Mom Who Loves Luxury in Every Aspect of Her Life

La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion

It doesn’t get richer than using a caviar-water-infused lotion in your skin-care routine.

Even if she has a wardrobe full of cashmere, she’ll appreciate a Max Mara turtleneck.
Available in sizes XS–XXL.

For the Mom Looking for a Status Candle

Louis Vuitton L’Air Du Jardin Fragrance Candle

This Louis Vuitton candle smells like “roses in the middle of May” (timely), but the vessel with a chic leather strap will keep on giving long after the candle is gone.

For the Mom With Great Skin

Sisley Paris Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream

A very fancy cream to keep her hydrated and radiant.

For the Mom Who Throws the Best Parties

La DoubleJ X Salviati Set of Eight Glasses

Bright, stylish glasses that render wineglass charms irrelevant.

Available in sizes S–L.

For the 5-Star Home Chef

Ondine Cuisine Ltd. Platine Casserole

Even if she has a mandolin, a sous vide, and an immersion blender, she probably doesn’t have Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite casserole dish.

The Mom Who Has a Punk Past

Clash de Cartier Ring Small Model

This stud-inspired ring from Cartier has an edge.

For the Super-Feminine Mom

David Yurman Continuance Pearl Button Earrings With Diamonds

The pearl/diamond combination make these studs feel like they were lifted from Audrey Hepburn’s jewelry box.

If you’ve ever described your mom as “just precious” or “the absolute sweetest,” this necklace is a good fit.

Available in sizes 00–16.

For the Mom Who Is Genuinely With It

If She Loves Heritage Labels
