What Stylish Mamas Want for Mother’s Day

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.

What Stylish Mamas Want for Mother’s Day

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!

DESCRIBE A PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY: Waking up with nothing on my schedule! A day spent with my husband and kids, brunch, a dip in the pool and watching the sunset with a glass of rosé in hand sounds like heaven to me.

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.

DESCRIBE A PERFECT MOTHER’S DAY: Waking up with my husband and daughter, having breakfast in bed together, walking around in Williamsburg, grabbing a casual and delicious brunch, doing some window shopping and then watching a movie and vegging out on the couch with a bottle of wine and pizza…lots of pizza.

What Stylish Mamas Want for Mother’s Day

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!

What Stylish Mamas Want for Mother’s Day

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?

NAME: Heather Taylor

PROFESSION: Founder, designer of Heather Taylor Home

For the Flowers

Tali Magal’s Pick

Indego Africa Natural Horn Vase

“Flowers and a nice meal in good company always make me feel special. A gift of a beautiful flower vase from Accompany, which sells ethically made items that support women and small artisanal collectives from all over the world, is the gift that keeps on giving.”

Sweet Slumber

Colleen Crivello’s Pick

Matteo Vintage Linen Sheets

“I can never just choose one thing… but I can choose one(ish) thing from each category. The jewelry [also here and here], because I would never take it off and it would make me think of the person who gave it to me every time I looked down. The safari, because I’ve traveled a lot, but to be in Africa is something so different, so new and an experience that’s been on my mind quite a bit lately. I also think it would be incredible to bring kids. And the sheets [pictured], because great sheets means great sleep — the ultimate luxury and cure-all for everything.”

Camille Styles’s Pick

Herbivore Botanicals Brighten Pineapple + Gemstone Mask

“I’m currently craving everything from Herbivore Botanicals, especially this Brighten Pineapple & Gemstone Mask. The products are created with natural, plant-based ingredients, and you can’t beat that gorgeous packaging on the bathroom counter.”

Right Angles

Simone LeBlanc’s Pick

Lily Stockman, Covey, 2016

“It’s beautiful and calming for me, brings light and depth into our home and will inspire questions and create visual memories for Lillian. And it’s art — one should always gather art.”

J.B. Blunk Blunk Cups

“These beautiful cups are cast from original handmade ceramics by one of my favorite artists, J.B. Blunk. I love art objects that can also be enjoyed daily.”

NYC Staple

Eden Grinshpan’s Pick

Russ & Daughters New York Brunch Delivery

“I love days that aren’t planned, aren’t rushed and are filled with delicious food, family, friends, and beautiful weather. My husband and I love those kinds of days and it’s so fun bringing Ayv into the mix. Bagels with cream cheese and smoked salmon is always a breakfast I look forward to. It just always feels like a treat, so I love eating it on special occasions.”

Who Run the World?

Violet Gaynor’s Pick

The Future Is Female Sweater

“I’ve been a mom for approximately 1,000 days, and one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that this job, this role, this journey is not for the faint of heart. To think about what our bodies go through during pregnancy, the transformation we experience through childbirth, literally going from one person to two, and the intense love, worry, fear, and bond we are lucky enough to embrace as mothers is nothing short of earth-shattering. And the crazy thing is, it’s the hardest job in the world, and also the one we get the least recognition for. As Louis C.K. once said, a not-even-trying mother gives 200% every day. I am the daughter of a single mother, and it’s only now that I’m a mom myself that I can truly understand her superwoman strength. Mamas are my heroes, which is why this sweater, by my dear friend Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, is so close to my heart. Each piece she creates is emblazoned with a meaningful message that can be fully customized. For Mother’s Day, I love the idea of gifting myself this cozy cashmere sweater, and having a matching version custom-made from my daughter, Plum. No matter who is in the White House, there’s no doubt that women rule my world.”

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

Caitlin Flemming’s Pick

Simone LeBlanc Joyful Morning Suite Gift Box

“In nearly any circumstance, I would always choose travel is my gift for anything! That being said, travel is nearly impossible this year for Mother’s Day. I will be less than a month away from the birth of my second child. So, I would love to receive a Simone LeBlanc Mother’s Day Gift Box. It’s like getting a box of love. The box is made of wood and every item within it is carefully chosen and useful for you and your home!”

Childlike Wonder

Sofia Karvela’s Pick

Yoshitomo Nara, I Don’t Want To Grow Up, 2010

“Yoshitomo Nara is my favorite artist. The ‘child’ in his art is very much a creature that lives in me and, well, since becoming a mother, around me. I get extremely nostalgic and vulnerable when I look at his work. A state of mind I find myself in at the mere sight of my two boys, Niko and Nestor.”

Little Locket

Heather Taylor’s Pick

Grace Lee Petite “O” Locket

“I love Grace Lee’s modern take on the locket. It’s chic and fresh but also sentimental, as Grace designs these pieces to be engraved. It would be so sweet to wear a necklace with Scarlett’s name on it!”
