29 Luxury Mother’s Day Gifts That Will Make You Her Favorite Child

If there’s anyone that deserves to be celebrated come May 14, it’s your mom. After all, she did give you life... and someone to vent to during your angsty teenage years (and beyond). While moms are notorious for saying things like, “Don't spend your money on me,” “Make something homemade,” and “Being with you is more than enough,” we know better than to show up to brunch this Mother’s Day empty-handed. We’re going a step further with a splurge-worthy luxury gift that will cement our status as her favorite.

Luxury gifts aren’t something to mess around with. They’re inherently an investment, and when you’re spending $$$ like that, you don’t want to get it wrong. To ensure that your mom gets the kind of gift that she deserves this Mother’s Day, we rounded up 29 extra-special gifts she's sure to love.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
