Mom to a Tee

This avocado tee from Jenny Lemons is as delish as the real thing.

Nom nom. // Available in sizes XS-XL, $35, jennylemons.com
All the Right Notes

Certain smells probably remind you of mother dearest. (It's homemade snickerdoodles for us.) As for madre's choice of signature scent? Indie artisanal perfumer L'Aromatica can help with that. The all-natural Laro discovery set, packaged in a reusable black tin, features 11 eclectic and lush fragrances. // $50 includes 11 1ml vials; laromaticaperfurme.com
What a Gem

Obviously diamonds are a mom's best friend. But sparklers don't always have to be a serious matter—which is exactly why we can't get enough of Curio's Mama Bear necklace. It features two genuine lab-grown diamonds on a 16-inch, 14-karat-gold vermeil chain. Adorbs for mamas-to-be or any mamas in your life. // $59, curiodiamonds.com
Of Wellness + Wanderlust

Hygge-loving moms will enjoy cozying up to Destination Wellness from Chronicle Books. Journalist Annie Daly travels to some of the happiest and healthiest places around the planet—think Norway, Jamaica, Brazil, and Hawaii—to uncover the inhabitants' secrets, customs, and philosophies for better living. Beautiful candid photos, interesting history lessons, and tips on how to incorporate these practices into one's life make it a real page-turner. // $20, chroniclebooks.com
Dressed to Chill

Moms of all kinds love a good one-and-done, don't you know? Cue Modern Citizen's new Lyra tiered maxi dress. Whether her style skews hippie, hip or haute, the breezy beauty will delight. It's made of 100 percent GOTS-certified organic cotton and has built-in ruching so it can be worn loose and flowy or tightened at the waist to highlight curves. // Available in navy and sand, in sizes XS-XL, $132; moderncitizen.com
Sugar Mama

Beautifully (pink) packaged and sure to satisfy discerning sweet-tooths, Miette's Classics box of cookies and confections will garner you plenty of thank-you smooches. The gift box from the beloved Bay Area patisserie/confiserie includes gingersnaps, brown butter and lemon shortbread cookies, caramels and Ballpark Brittle. Ask nicely and we bet she'll share. // $50, miette.com
Fancy Face

Beauty junkies, A-listers, and skincare-obsessives rave about The Rich Cream. The signature product (newly upgraded) from European brand Augustinus Bader is a thick, deeply hydrating cream powered by proprietary ingredient TFC8, known for its ability to revitalize complexions, soothe dryness and reduce signs of aging. Moms will lap up the luxuriousness. Holy glowing skin, Batman! // $85 for 15 ml, $170 for 1oz and $265 for 1.7oz; buy locally at aylabeauty.com or sephora.com.
That French Glow

Ooh la la! Light up her world with an exclusive candle from Nest, one of our favorite SF boutiques. Like the Francophile shop itself, the glass votives ooze charm, especially when wrapped in vibrant 18th century French wallpaper. Choose from scents of lavender, orchid, and verbena with lemongrass—maybe buy deux or trois. // $21, nestsf.com
Pucker Up

A little Bliss goes a long way when it's an elegantly packaged, brilliant nude lip gloss. Saint Jane's bestselling Luxury Lip Shine in Bliss feels so good on the pout, lasts forever, and fosters a feeling of zen thanks to an infusion of 50mg of hemp-derived CBD plus other antioxidant-rich ingredients. No worries if Mom prefers a bolder lip—the clean, shiny gloss comes in several luminous shades. Xoxo. // $28, credobeauty.com
Scarf It Up

A lady can never have too many scarves. Double that notion when said scarves come from Centinelle, a brand known for whimsical, hand-illustrated designs. Playful and chic, Deer & Blueberries will have Mom at, well, deer and blueberries. Made of 100 percent silk, the sustainably sourced scarf adds a twist and wink to every outfit. // Scarf is 35-inches square, $150; centinelle.com
Hello, Stud

Soko's Nena teardrop stud earrings will make Mom happy cry. Handcrafted of ethically sourced horn and brass by artisans in Kenya, this two-toned pair finishes off any look with shine and style. We're big fans of this women-led, certified B Corp…and if she isn't already, Mom will be too. // $68, shopsoko.com
Moms Gone Wild

This trio of leopard-print stashers is fierce, fun and functional. Baggu's zip pouches, made of heavyweight recycled nylon, are great for keeping things organized in a bag, drawer, or suitcase. Also, what mom doesn't love to unleash her inner (beautiful) beast from time to time? // Set includes small, medium and large pouches, $34; baggu.com
Sock it to Her

These fresh stripes will most definitely add pep to her step. Named Cole, the striped socks are lightweight, comfy, and cool. And like all the cotton pairs from Hooray Socks, they feature the brand's signature color bar. Additional stripes in the SF-inspired crew include Fillmore, Eureka and Marina. // $8-$12, hooraysocks.com
A Mug of One's Own

Coffee, tea, and matcha-drinking moms will form an instant attachment to this Funky Handle mug from Oakland's Stina Ceramics. It's cool AF, dishwasher-safe, and microwavable. Remember, it's hers so don't even think about it. Cheers! // $38, stinaceramics.com
