That's why we tapped expert gift giver Simone LeBlanc—who's known for curating the dreamiest gift sets—to give us her picks for gifts with wow factor (plus her amazing advice for how to become a better gift giver yourself). Top priority? Make it genuine.
"Even a small, sentimental gesture provides a simple way to connect, ground, and nourish a relationship," LeBlanc says. "Thoughtful gifting (especially for mom) takes time, reflection, and care. People move so quickly these days, they often forget how impactful the little details can be. Hand write that note, print that photo, and find the gift that shows that you know her; it will do wonders."

If your mom's a total free spirit...
LeBlanc suggests gifting your mindful mama whimsical items that show you appreciate all the facets of her personality. Whether her zest for life fuels her worldwide travels, makes her a daily journal-keeper, or inspires her to collect mementos from her many adventures, choose a gift that celebrates her passions.
"[The moon] is the lasting symbolism of discovery," LeBlanc says. "[And the box is] a future heirloom to gather the meaningful keepsakes. Perfect for every mom."

When she's taught you to chase your ambitions...
Real talk: Your mom is a total boss. To thank her for being such an empowering role model for you, pick a present that nods to her awesome work ethic.
A chic luggage tag in Tiffany Blue will help her suitcase stand out from the rest on business trips, delicate dishes to keep on her desk or vanity will keep her everyday essentials organized (so she always feels put together, even in the midst of inevitable time crunches), and an Italian leather file folder is a statement-making piece for toting her documents from meeting to meeting.

Because no one throws a dinner party like her...
Her parties might not be quite Gatsby-status, but for the mom who loves to entertain, gifts that she can show off to her dinner guests strike the right note of functional and sentimental.
A bendy straw in rose gold is both a super modern and irreverent gesture that's guaranteed to be a great conversation starter, while a set of luxe playing cards puts an elevated spin on cocktail-hour entertainment. And the crystal glass ice bucket? That's all class. "One always needs ice for a great evening of entertaining, so why not serve it up in style?" LeBlanc says. We second that.
