Tan-Luxe Super Glow Body Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum ($49)

ghd Platinum+ Styler ($250)

If she’s taken a not-so-voluntary break from her routine blowouts, mom will love this two-in-one styler.

Jergens Original Scent Moisturizer ($8)

We all know the power fragrance holds when it comes to reliving some of our most treasured memories. Now, you can take mom down memory lane with Jergen’s latest moisturizer launch featuring its original Cherry Almond scent, made famous more than 100 years ago. Even better, the brand is encouraging mothers and daughters everywhere to celebrate mom by sharing a “MOMento”—any item that represents a memory between themselves and their mother figure—and the special story behind it on Facebook or Instagram. Bonus points if it involved this OG body-care staple.

Drunk Elephant Body Duo ($20 Each)

Our favorite skin-care brand is now in on the body-care game. Marula oil– and ceramide–powered Sili Body Lotion ($20) leaves skin feeling like silk all day; the rich Kamili Cream Body Cleanser ($20) deep-cleans and refines texture with an amino acid blend and addictive almond scent.

Aceology Ice Globe Facial Massager ($64)

Elevate mom’s at-home facial game with these cooled sculpting globes. Store them in the freezer, then grab them whenever you’re feeling a little puffy or want to rev up lymphatic drainage.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian l’eau A la rose ($225)

Master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian’s latest eau de toilette celebrates the timeless, feminine fragrance of the rose. Made for the classic woman in your life, the brand describes the juice as a reflection of “four hundred freshly bloomed roses,” but unlike our usual Mother’s Day bouquet, this one won’t wilt.

This newly launched hydrator combines seven forms of collagen and collagen-supporting ingredients to keep mom’s skin line-free and dewy—and shows amazing results in two weeks’ time.

11 / 21

Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm ($22)

If her favorite chapstick is due for an upgrade, try this luxe, aluminum-housed formula instead. Chock-full of shea and murumuru seed butters to deeply nourish parched lips as natural vanilla plays to our senses, it’s an absolute must for a little “me” time.

NewBeauty TestTube

The ultimate gift for the beauty-lover in your life, this editor-curated subscription box will hit mom’s door every other month—each is filled with our favorite products of the moment—and also gives her a subscription to NewBeauty. Win-win!

Silke London Hair Wrap ($58)

These chic sleeping caps take the silk pillowcase trend a few steps further by cocooning your tresses in 100-percent pure silk to prevent breakage and keep your blowout looking fresh and full for days. Plus, if you have dry ends and oily roots, this cap helps to balance it out while naturally condition strands—all while you snooze. Available in a variety of fun colors or classic naturals, there’s an option for everyone (pictured: The Sofia).

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Glow Instant Palette ($75)

Perfect for a mom who’s always on the go, this all-in-one palette serves as a universally-flattering face and eye palette that covers all the bases. Three stunning eye shadow shades, two blush hues plus a bronzer and highlighter are all housed in one compact to create a supermodel glow in record time.

Dr. Dennis Gross SpectraLite EyeCare Pro ($159)

Proven to build collagen and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, this ultra high-tech device transfers the power of in-office LED treatments into an easy-to-use, hands-free device you can wear at home. In just three minutes at a time, it works by penetrating deep within the dermis of your skin, stimulating collagen production to improve its density, smooth lines and even tone. 

16 / 21

Cor Aromatherapy Pendant ($125)

Available in three finishes—14-karat gold, 14-karat rose gold and silver plated—each pendant (it looks like a chic piece of jewelry!) comes with three essential oil–infused Cor wicks: Calm, Focus and Energy. Pop the wicks in and out of the pendant (the bottom portion clicks in and out easily) depending on your need and breathe in deeply. 

17 / 21

La Mer The Brilliance Brightening Mask ($250)

One mask in two bottles, this two-step mask (prime first, mask second) is loved for its ability to help reduce dark spots, fade fine lines and deliver a dewy, radiant complexion in eight minutes flat—exactly what we’ve come to expect from the brand, and precisely what every great mom deserves.

Luminora Sicily Tunic ($320)

Crafted with Luminology technology fabric to provide UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) 50+ rated sun protection, blocking 98 percent of UVA/UVB rays, this luxury sunwear collection is a fuss-free way to protect skin from the sun. Plus, unlike many other protective clothing on the market, every piece in the collection has been infused with a plant-based oil and zero chemicals or metals, meaning the sun protection is permanent and ready to wear season after season.

Tory Burch Cosmetic Case (Pictured: Gemini, $78; Kerrington, $95)

It’s practically scientific fact that moms always carry one of everything in their purses. Help keep her tote organized with one of these spring-ready cosmetic cases that are equally chic, durable and water-resistant.

Dolce & Gabbana x SMEG (price upon request)

Just when you thought juicers, toasters and mixers couldn’t be more “blah,” Dolce & Gabbana teams up with SMEG, the trendy Italian home appliance company, to launch a line of jaw-dropping small kitchen appliances. Each piece is an ode to southern Italy, where both Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana call home.

21 / 21

Beauty From The Inside Out ($25)

There’s no one quite like our mothers to teach us the lesson of beauty starting from within, but beauty guru Bobbi Brown does a standout job of outlining some of the best ways to care for ourselves where it matters most: the inside. Filled with health and wellness tips, Bobbi’s go-to fitness regimen and confidence advice from celebs like Olivia Munn, Laila Ali and Elle Macpherson, this book is the perfect addition to mom’s coffee table or nightstand.
