Wine lovers rejoice! If you aren't from the New York area (and even if you are), when it comes to rosé, it doesn't get much better than Wolffer, a vineyard and winery based in the Hamptons. Personally, I always prefer the Estate Rosé, but Summer in a Bottle is also delicious and looks as beautiful as it tastes.
If you have a trendy fashionista in your life, a chic bag for the summer is never a bad idea. Natural wood and woven bags are all the rage this year. Here are two very similar bags, one from Intermix and the other from Francesca's at a lower price point but equally attractive.
For music lovers and/or active moms in your life, these Jaybird headphones are sure to delight. The sound is phenomenal. They're wireless but still connected to each other so you won't easily lose one.

Those who enjoy a great fragrance in their home will love candles with scents from two wonderful hotel chains: Kimpton and St. Regis. Both of these fragrances can be experienced when visiting their properties, and they are by far my favorite. Perhaps if she closes her eyes while they're burning, she'll feel like she's been transported to her favorite destination.
Nicola Bathie earrings are a favorite of mine, in addition to Gal Meets Glam founder, Julia Engel. Check out her entire line for a unique and beautiful pair.

If she likes to bake and entertain, you can't go wrong with this sweet cake plate by Anthropologie that is available at Nordstrom.
For the special mom who likes to travel but can't always get away, allow her to dream when turning the pages of this beautiful coffee table book that is just as stunning when closed. Perhaps you can judge a book by its cover.

If you can't think of a physical gift, give her the gift of relaxation and beauty. Find her favorite spa and purchase an experience. These three services are just a few offered by Ninotch, an Urban Retreat, with two locations in the Washington, DC area. Experience their open and relaxing float rooms at their Tysons Corner location to calm her body and mind. And if she's feeling like she needs a bit of a beauty makeover, eyelash extensions and a facial can give her that refreshed look.
If the special lady in your life is always on the go, consider this Daytripper bag from Stella & Dot. It cleverly extends just in case she comes back with more than she left with.
You can never go wrong with jewelry, especially if that jewelry is personal and gives her some way to remember those special souls who made her a mom. Personalize them with the initials of her children. Or if you want something that celebrates her, choose her initials. You can even vary the chain length of the Pave Initial piece to layer and wear one to represent each child.
If you have a real foodie in your life, anything with truffles will surely put a smile on her face. Truffle oils and salts add that special and unique flavor to salads, pastas, and even mashed potatoes. Or go all out and purchase the truffles themselves for a stronger and more intense treat.
If she loves the beach, you can't go wrong with this hat. Beauty and sun protection all in one.
If you like a more traditional gift but from a not-so-traditional company, try a delivery from Farmgirl Flowers.
For the interior design buffs, this new book is sure to bring a smile to her face. And it's a favorite of one of my favorite designers, Emily Henderson. This book will keep her entertained as she reads about how to approach many situations in the home and life.
Being a mom is one toughest jobs in the world. Make sure you take time to thank her this Mother’s Day. And remember, although these gifts are fabulous, the best gift will always be these four words: I love you, Mom!
