This Mother’s Day, think outside the gift box! After breakfast in bed, surprise mom with one of these A-list worthy treats, courtesy of my favorite fashioniastas! (Think of the more expensive picks as stylish inspiration!)
Jenny Feldman, Senior Fashion Editor, MyHabit.com:
Something to pamper her: Whether it’s a gift certificate to that spa she’s never tried, or a do-it-herself basket of luxe beauty products that make for a home spa experience, mom deserves a bit of R&R. In addition to products, things like cashmere robes, pretty slippers or a fragrant scented candle also make evergreen gifts.
A new handbag: The bigger, the better. Since mom is always carrying everything and the kitchen sink, give her the gift of a great bag to transport it all. (For a great deal, MyHabit.com's handbag sale launches May 1st.)

Little treasures: Jewelry carries the most sentiment out of any fashion gift, so it makes an ideal token for mom. Depending on her style and lifestyle, everything from earrings to lockets or a pendant necklace can make a meaningful present. (Jewelry sale launches May 5th.)

A Kindle or iPad—or a fabulous new cover/case if she already has one: If your mother is a reader of books or magazines, it’s high time for an e-Reader. And, if she’s tech-savvy enough to already have a reader, why not spoil her with a glam new case. Bright colored leathers are especially fun for summer, and make durable covers if she’s traveling and transporting her e-Reader with her. (Kindle covers sale launches May 1st.)
Great cookware: Since you’ve always appreciated mom’s home-cooked meals, show your gratitude with a fine new addition for her kitchen in the form of a ceramic pot, copper pan, or sparkly new appliance she’s been wishing for. (Cookware sale launches May 6th.)

A chic scarf: What makes a gift smart is when it’s something she covets but wouldn’t necessarily buy for herself, like a beautiful printed silk scarf that will be her instant new favorite accessory. (Scarves sale launches May 7th.)
Celebrity Stylists Saba Salehi and Laura Schuffman:
Zara Evening Bag with Metallic Sequins and Fringing ($79.90): Let's face it, buying clothes for mom is a tough thing to do, but there are ways to gift your mom some glamour this year without worrying about sizing. We love this clutch from Zara. They call it an "evening bag," but we call it the "every day bag.” It’s light in color, adorned with sequins and colorful beading, and is the perfect compliment to any spring outfit.
Anthropologie Dalliance Sunhat ($78.00): Whether your mom has a toddler or two grown children, a great summer hat is a must. Hats have really taken a turn for the stylish these last few years, and we are obsessed with this one from Anthropolgie. It looks great with a bikini on the beach, or just as fashionable at the farmer's market on a Sunday afternoon. We all need to protect our skin and we vote for doing it in style!
Me&Ro Jewelry Silver Love Disc Pendant with Ruby ($95.00): Mother's Day usually yields a lot of jewelry, and we certainly won't argue with that! Trying to find the right piece can be a bit of a challenge, but one of our favorite brands, Me&Ro, has some great options. A lot of their pieces are sentimental. This particular pendant has "Love" inscribed in Tibetan on it. We love the idea of gifting something that doesn't just look beautiful, but also has beautiful meaning.
Jenny Altman, ILOVEAGOOD.com:
Roberta Roller Rabbit Kimono Robe ($65): These kimono robes are a crisp lightweight cotton, very soft and last forever. I have one already, but it's time for one of her new beautiful prints!
The Cosabella Amore Dreamer Camisole ($52.50) and Pants ($53.50): I always want pajamas that look great and feel delicious. Cosabella makes the perfect set. I don't need pajamas I can't really wear, and these you would have to chase me out of!
UGG Ansley Slipper ($100): Even on summer nights, my feet like to be toasty. These are also great to run out and get the paper in!
Missoni Crochet Knit Playsuit ($625): Anything Missoni makes me very happy, I know this playsuit would. You can wear it at home, by the pool or on your next beach vacation.
Olivia Collings Antique Jewelry Silver Paste Stone Earrings: It may be a dream, but I would love beautiful earrings like these antiques from Barneys NY. I am having a baby two weeks after Mother’s Day, so maybe it can signify the first Mother's Day for me?
