for mama

really, where to start with mother's day? there are thousands and thousands of wonderful gift ideas out there so i've rounded up just a handful of my favorites du jours.

for the mom who hates to be late (but doesn't mind if you are), i love this watch from stefani greenfield's line for hsn. want something sportier? check out the soft carnation or the silky lusture from swatch.

for the mom you're always comfortable around, comfy her up in these adorable p.j. salvage tie-dye pajamas. or for a great plus size option i love this anne klein caftan.

for the mom who always love the flowers you bring her, this stoneware vase from anthropologie is a piece of art all on its own, but will take on a special charm with just one or two simple blooms inside. if she'd like something a little more modern, check out this wall pocket vase from jayson home and garden.

for the mom who's just plain beautiful, i love this simple tray in the palest blue/white from jayson home and garden. it would be so sweet on a beautiful mom's vanity or dressing table.for something a little funkier, try the papier watermelon bowl from anthro.

for the fashion forward mom, this silk strand necklace from moma is bananas. or how about this alexis bittar rope lucite bracelet i die over? i die over everything alexis bittar...

for the tongue-in-cheek mom, i love this pill carafe from jonathan adler, made up of a white carafe base and a tumbler in one of six colors (the red looks most legit to me). or how about this modular fish hotel from urban outfitters?

for the mom who makes everything delicious, i love these pretty, flirty aprons from uncommon goods, and it's an added bonus if you have a daughter your mom loves to bake with so you can give her the set (beyond adorable way to break the news she'll be a grandmother, btw)...OR you can always hold on to the mini version for when it does happen. another great option for a perennial entertainer? this outdoor serving cart from pier 1.

for the mom who makes everything grow, i love this old school copper watering can by smith & hawken for target. maybe pair it with packets of seeds to plant together. if you like a more playful pitcher, this frog one from pier 1 is the one.

for the mom who is always willing to hold your phone in her bag so you don't have to bring one, these sets of rebecca minkoff leather and canvas pouches will give her options. if she's more of a throw-it-all-in-there type, consider this tie dye linen bag from old navy.

for the mom who can pull off anything, this woven straw fedora from j. crew is especially cool in an unexpected blue. not so much? then try this saturn sunhat from anthropologie.
