What Stylish Mamas Want for Mother’s Day

By Natalie Goel

Mother knows best, even when it comes to providing chic, thoughtful Mother’s Day gift ideas. Of course, you wouldn’t necessarily want to ask your own mama for suggestions, lest you spoil the surprise. So instead, here is a whole gaggle of inspiring mums to the rescue. Ahead, these near and dear style-loving ladies share their own, personal Mother’s Day wish lists — both the items they’re coveting and their idea of a perfect day spent celebrating.

NAME: Tali Magal

PROFESSION: Owner and executive producer at Freebird Productions. Also on the board of Accompany, an ethical shopping platform.

DESCRIBE A PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY: I’d love to spend the afternoon with my babes and husband somewhere beautiful and have a sweet family meal together. An afternoon at the Botanical Garden where we can throw a blanket on the grass and watch the babes run around the flower fields, followed by a nice brunch at Atrium or Vinegar Hill House in our neighborhood sounds like heaven. And if some beautiful flowers miraculously make their way on to the breakfast table in the morning, all the better!

NAME: Simone LeBlanc

PROFESSION: Founder/CEO of eponymous gifting company Simone LeBlanc

DESCRIBE A PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY: Waking up to the smell of freshly-brewed coffee and the sound of my husband and daughter in the kitchen together. Lingering in bed a bit with magazines, a slow and simple breakfast at home, an easy family outing to LACMA or Griffith Park, then a yoga class on my own and meeting up again later with the family for an early dinner at one of our favorite spots.

What Stylish Mamas Want for Mother's Day | EyeSwoon | Violet Gaynor

NAME: Violet Gaynor

PROFESSION: Co-founder of motherhood site The Glow

DESCRIBE A PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY: A perfect Mother’s Day for me would involve sleeping in, then going out for breakfast with my mom, sister, and daughter. While weekends are usually reserved for time with Plum and my husband, I’d secretly love to take a few hours to myself. I’d wander around the city, buy a new book, drink copious amounts of coffee and just be alone with my own thoughts for once. And if I’m being really honest, I’d love to end the day with a girls’ night with my closest mama friends who make me feel sane.

NAME: Caitlin Flemming

PROFESSION: Interior designer and stylist living and working in San Francisco, California. Also the founder of the lifestyle and interior design blog Sacramento Street.

DESCRIBE A PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY: Most importantly, it’s a day where I can unplug and spend time with my family. I would enjoy a day at the beach with a picnic and something fun for the kiddos. (This includes my husband.) Honestly, I am always happiest when I get to spend the day with my family – there is nothing better in the world!

NAME: Sofia Karvela

PROFESSION: Fashion stylist/fashion lover

DESCRIBE A PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY: A perfect Mother’s Day — and please don’t cringe with my response — is every day I get to be a mother to these two amazing souls that chose me. I get to wake and work toward becoming the nicest version of me, and it is quite the task. But since I MUST come up with a plan, can I just ask for Mother’s Day Santa to give me three more hours of sleep in the morning and an undisturbed night?
