My Mother’s Day Luxe (and More) Wishlist

A little bit of this and a little bit of that...

This weekend is Mother’s Day, and while it is technically a holiday, I don’t love calling it one as it’s more like a day of remembrance for mothers to receive extra attention and acknowledgment. But I’ll take it.

Being a mom is easily the most challenging yet rewarding role I have ever had, and as my kids get older, they are equally as excited to celebrate me, making it all the more enjoyable.

I must preface this entire post by saying that this holiday is also terribly hard for many. Those who want to be a mother but have not been able to, those who have lost babies, those who have lost their own mothers, those who have strained relationships, and those who are parents or guardians who don’t fit the title of mother.

With that being said, a gift guide that shows some of my favorite luxe items right now can work for everything from birthdays to anniversaries to Mother’s Day or a just-because gift – can we bring those back? I love a random gift, even if it is from me to me.

My Luxe List

Prada Galleria printed Saffiano leather bag
PRADA Galleria Printed Saffiano Leather Bag
$5,500 via Prada
SHOP

The Prada Galleria is such a functional, timeless bag, and this floral printed version makes me smile. It is very much a florals-for-spring-groundbreaking sort of design, but here I am, loving it still.

bottega veneta knot mule
BOTTEGA VENETA Knot Mule
$1,390 via Bottega Veneta
SHOP

I am much more of a sneaker girl than anything else, but I realized I have so few dressier shoes that I can turn to that look good and might feel ok too. I need a nice pair of kitten heels, and these are so chic!

ralph lauren soft ricky 27
RALPH LAUREN Soft Ricky 27 Calf-Suede & Calfskin Bag
$3,000 via Ralph Lauren
SHOP

I have always loved the Ralph Lauren Ricky, but a few weeks ago, I saw a woman in NYC carrying a suede one, and it was one of those bags that felt like a handbag-loving sucker-punch to the heart. I keep thinking about it.

Loewe Puzzle Fold Tote in raffia
LOEWE Puzzle Fold Tote
$1,990 via Loewe
SHOP

What Loewe does with its summer collections always speaks to my soul, and this bag folds up and will hold every items for tropical beach vacations and pair with breezy summer dresses as well.

louis vuitton Malle Fleurs Large
LOUIS VUITTON Malle Fleurs
Shop via Louis Vuitton
SHOP

Ok, this gift is over-the-top, but I have never been one to be under-the-top! In my dream life, I have Louis Vuitton trunks all over my house, as coffee tables or placed at the end of the bed. This trunk is meant to hold flowers, and how great would this look on an entry table or coffee table?

burberry Long Silk Trench Coat
BURBERRY Long Silk Trench Coat
$3,250 via Burberry
SHOP

Though I don’t need this in Florida, we travel enough, and I realize I no longer have an excellent trench coat for the in-between weather days. No better option than Burberry, and this one is more under the radar.

Miu miu Wander matelasse nappa leather hobo bag Large
MIU MIU Wander Matelassé Nappa Leather Hobo Bag
$2,750 via Miu Miu
SHOP

Miu Miu is having a major moment, and the Wander is a significant part of that. I love this little bag; it feels like an appropriate Mother’s Day gift.

Large Dior Toujours Bag
DIOR Toujours Bag
$4,400 via Dior
SHOP

A larger travel bag will forever be necessary in my life, and the Toujours grew so much on me! I love this bag, and it is made for hauling everything everywhere.

Everyday Luxe Items

Missoni Cecil Beach Towel 100x180 1
MISSONI Cecil Beach Towel
$230 via Shopbop
SHOP

I don’t need a Missoni towel, but I want it! After I checked out the ShopBop Miami Pop Up, I found myself feeling like I needed an overhaul of Missoni items.

anthropologie Icon Juice Glasses
ANTHROPOLOGIE Icon Juice Glasses
$16 via Anthropologie
SHOP

While a far more expensive list of dream items is fun to share, everyday luxe items are at times more usable and obviously more affordable. How fun are these glasses?!

anthropologie Faye Dessert Plate Large
ANTHROPOLOGIE Faye Dessert Plate
$18 via Anthropologie
SHOP

And these dessert plates!

Clarins Super Restorative Day Cream
CLARINS Super Restorative Day Cream
$134 via Clarins
SHOP

I recently received some Clarins products and love how they feel on my skin! This is a great gift.

Clarins Cryo Flask Mask
CLARINS Cryo-Flash Mask
$80 via Clarins
SHOP

So is this! A face mask feels so luxurious even if you’re just sitting in your own bathroom hoping for 10 minutes of quiet.

birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed Sandals 1
BIRKENSTOCK Arizona Soft Footbed Sandals
$145 via Shopbop
SHOP

As far as practical necessities go, everyone needs a good pair of Birkenstocks.

ongchamp LE PANIER PLIAGE XL BASKET BAG Large
LONGCHAMP Le Panier Pliage XL Basket Bag
$480 via Longchamp
SHOP

Back to my penchant for summer bags, but this one is on the more affordable side!

sezane OSIRIS DRESS Large 1
SÉZANE Osiris Dress
$245 via Sézane
SHOP

I realize the dress section of my closet is lacking, and if I were to share this link with Vlad, I would be thrilled to get a nice dress that I could wear out to brunch with the family!
