How do you thank the woman who has been there for you, through thick and thin, through good days and bad, from the very beginning? It’s a grandiose task, friends. And frankly, no gift will ever come close to doing her justice. But there is no sense in not trying. Below are a few ideas to help show the #1 lady in your life just how much she means to you.

1. Coqui Coqui Perfume

If your mom’s been dreaming of a tropical getaway, the perfumes from the renowned Coqui Coqui Hotel in Tulum, Mexico are the perfect indulgence. Hotelier and perfumer Nicolas Malleville spent years developing Coqui Coqui’s fragrances, formulating them just right to evoke the lush landscape of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. We couldn’t help but bring home a bottle of the Tabaco and CoCo Coco perfumes after our last trip to Tulum. Coqui Coqui Perfumes

2. Classic Sunnies

Your mom is the sunshine of your life and one heck of a classy lady. The round shape and classic tortoise frame of these Ray-ban sunnies play a nod to her youthful spirit and remind her of the ‘good old days.’ Bonus—maybe if you’re nice, she’ll let you borrow them too! Ray-Ban Round Fleck

3. Fancy Daily Planner

The most organized woman you know—your mom never misses a beat. She remembers every birthday, every holiday, and even makes sure to remind you of your dentist appointment next Thursday at 1pm. (thanks, mom <3) Not only will one of these stunning daily planners from LA based Graphic Designer Julia Kostreva help to keep your mom organized with its super practical layout, it will bring a smile to her face every time she catches a glance at its beautifully designed cover. Julia Kostreva Daily Planner

4. Wise Art Print

Mom knows best. She taught you the best things in life take hard work, perseverance, and patience. And this limited addition art print from Congostudio in Barcelona illustrates her wise words perfectly. ‘Some Things Take Time’ Art Print

5. George Cloony Approved Tequila

Longtime friends George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman set out to make the perfect tequila, and according to the countless rave reviews, its seems as though they’ve done just that. Casamigos is a small batch, ultra premium tequila made from the finest, hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agaves, grown in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Kick back and enjoy a margarita with mom, or go ahead and sip it straight on the rocks—because if it’s good enough for George, it’s gotta be good enough for mom, too. Casamigos Tequila

6. Educational Cookbook 

If your mom is always up for a new adventure, this new cookbook from J. Kenji Lopez-Alt explores the science of home cooking with recipes and experiments for every week. Kenji focuses on the science behind beloved American dishes like grilled steak and mac and cheese, delving into the interactions between heat, energy, and molecules that create great food. The Food Lab Cookbook

7. Heirloom Roses

Sometimes the best gifts are worth waiting for! These heirloom roses from David Austin have the reputation of being some of the finest rose plants in the world, and this is a gift she will continue to enjoy as the roses bloom all summer long. David Austin Roses

8. Luxurious Towels

If you’ve ever used a turkish towel before, you know that the lightweight fabric is not only super absorbent, but dries extremely fast—making these towels perfect for the beach, the bathroom, and everything in between. Available in numerous colors and patterns to match your mom’s exquisite taste. Longest Thread Turkish Towels

9. Bullet Planter

An essential for any Mid-century Modern lover, the iconic bullet planter is extremely versatile and great for both indoor and outdoor use. Though called a planter, the iconic 1950’s design can also work as an ice bucket for a party or to hold other items like magazines and books. Available in two heights and multiple colors. Bullet Planter

10. Glamorous Chocolate Bars

Compartes chocolatiers produce some seriously delicious chocolate. Handmade in Los Angeles in small batches, this premium gourmet chocolate is not only delicious, it very well may be the most beautifully packaged chocolate in the world. But despite the glamorous packaging, I guarantee this won’t prevent mom from digging right in. Maybe with a side of champagne and strawberries? Perfection! Compartes Chocolate Bars
