The Best Mother's Day Gifts

Ways to Make Mom's Day

the best gifts for mother's day!

You’ve said it yourself: “I’m turning into my mother.” Here’s what to give her based on what she gave you.

A love of the finer things
You could take her to brunch or, better yet, bond while learning to make one at a Mother’s Day cooking class ($75 per person). If she needs a weekend away, give her a battery-recharging, two-night stay at the Farmhouse Inn in Sonoma (starting at $400), complete with gourmet breakfast, a massage at the spa, and a personalized wine tasting. Or treat her to a sweat session at Noe Valley’s Cardio-Tone, which offers the luxury of childcare while moms work out (tell your sister).

Choose from 38 characters (moms, dads, kids, dogs) to create a likeness of your family on an organic cotton pillow or hemp wall hanging (starting at $134). For once, solicit her opinion: TCHO is requesting feedback on its limited-edition beta milk chocolate ($60 for a series of six). Update her garden with a modern, matte-glazed, stoneware birdhouse ($80).

Give classic pearls a fresh spin with a nautical-inspired, hand-draped necklace ($198). Not only are Soy Savvy’s colorful scarves ($45-$65) ecofriendly, they’re also supersoft and double as swaddling blankets. Invest in a watercolor Collina Strada handbag ($268) that she can tote everywhere from the farmers market to her favorite restaurant.
