Out of all the VIPs in your life, the most important person on your list is your mom. She gave you life! Enough said. Make sure she is pampered and spoiled this season. If that sounds like a difficult task, not to worry. I’ve combed the shops far and wide for the best foolproof gifts every mom will love, without fail:
1. Eddie Borgo Croc-Effect Leather Jewelry Case: Is there anything Snobbier than a decadent jewelry case? Mom will love storing family heirlooms (to be passed on to you!) in this gorgeous, suede-lined case. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,910.
2. A Peace Treaty Maia Scarf: Not only is this a generously-sized and great-looking scarf, it’s a gift with a great cause. This brand works with artisans the world over to give them a voice – and give us something truly unique. At A Peace Treaty for $375.
3. Gucci Blooms GG Supreme Leather-Trimmed Printed Coated Canvas Shoulder Bag: Flowers in bloom plus a nice helping of Gucci equals a no-fail gift that’s as feminine as it is classic. On NET-A-PORTER for $950.
4. Givenchy Medium Nightingale Bag: Moms love anything timeless, and few bag styles have longstanding popularity like Givenchy’s Nightingale. In bright blue, it feels extra special. On NET-A-PORTER for $2,450.
5. Mallet & Co. Zeus Textured-Leather Tote: I’m obsessed with this new brand by Nicholas Knightly, the longtime Design Director of Leather Goods at Louis Vuitton and the force behind Mulberry’s Bayswater bag. This is the kind of tote that’s as gorgeous as it is practical. Exclusively on NET-A-PORTER for $1,625.
6. Lilly e Violetta Fur Cowl: It’s always nice to give something cozy this time of year, and if it’s super luxe, like this satin-lined fox fur cowl, then all the better. At Barneys New York for $595.
7. Smythson Mara Croc-Effect Leather Cosmetics Case: Upgrade her cosmetics pouch in drop-dead lipstick red, croc-stamped leather, and she’ll feel uplifted every time she opens her tote to pull out her compact. On NET-A-PORTER for $315.
