Darlings, spring has officially sprung and with it comes prime shopping season for all the moms and mother figures in your lives! Because we’re the pushy sorts and because we love to shop (and also because we love even more to make commissions when we shop), we’ve put together a little list of fabulous T Lo-curated gifts for Mother’s Day. Now, we figure most of y’all already know how to shop for your moms and mom-figures, but just in case you’re a little lost or need a little inspiration, we thought we’d put our own spin on the traditional Mother’s Day gift guide. A little fierce, a little feisty, and a little fun. Let’s go shopping!
First up, that ol’ standby…
As you can see, we had a little fun with it. The way we see it, there as many types of moms and mom-figures out there as there are… well, types of women, of course. So if she’s the purse type, maybe she likes classically pretty or maybe she likes cute and practical or maybe she’s got a taste for the ridiculous. We tried to include something for every purse-toting mama.
Maybe you’d like your mom-lady to do a little more reading and a little less toting, in which case, you should check out our recs for …
Crafting! Gardening! Feminism! Tattoos! Glamour! Jewelry! Movie Stars! It’s all there, darlings. Or at least some of it is.

We realize the Betsey Johnson fairy earrings are a highly acquired tasted, but they’re so cute and quirky we couldn’t help ourselves. Also loving those Kate Spade watches and the Bauble Bar options.

RANDOM MOM ACCESSORIES AND ITEMS!
You wanna get your mom a bathrobe? Fine. But consider maybe getting her a fabulous Missoni or Sonia Rykiel one, just to make her feel all the more chic when she has her morning coffee. Also: a Wonder Woman rain jacket can be a fine thing for many a Mom to have, especially if she opts to pair it with Commes des Garcons Chucks, arwerite?

MOM TRINKETS & GEWGAWS
Because maybe what she really needs is a rainbow snow globe or a gold-plated stapler or even just a Scandal board game. These are the fun, personal gifts that say “I thought of you,” even if you relied on two bloggers you never met to do the thinking for you. Mom doesn’t need to know everything, now does she?
