She stays up with the hottest trends in fashion, and you can bet you were a well-dressed kid. Wherever she goes, your mom always looks fantastic. This Mother's Day, buy her the perfect gift and play to her fashion-loving side.
Go designer: If she's into fashion, she probably knows all about the biggest designers in the business and likely even has a couple favorites of her own. That doesn't mean she'll always buy designer apparel for herself, however. Surprise Mom with a new dress, handbag, or pair of sunglasses from her favorite design house.
Think accessories: The stylish woman knows that it's the whole package that counts, and that means she's probably big on accessories. Think about getting her a chic new cuff bracelet to go with her favorite LBD, a scarf she can wear with a tailored blazer, or a cute pair of shoes and matching handbag.
Time it right: One of the most popular fashion statements right now is a bold wristwatch. Give your style-loving mom a watch with on-trend accents, like floral patterns or crystals around the bezel. Gold Michael Kors watches are some of the best-selling women's watches, so if your mom doesn't have one yet, she'll probably love to unwrap one on Mother's Day.
Get a subscription: Your mom loves to stay on top of all the current trends in fashion. Help her out with a subscription to her favorite fashion magazine. Opt for a year-long subscription, and she'll remember her Mother's Day gift every time she gets a new issue in the mail.
Try perfume: The whole package isn't just about looks. The sense of smell actually has a lot to do with how attractive we find people. Chances are your mom doesn't just want to look good, but to smell good, too. Pick up a gift set in her favorite scent or get her a bottle of the hottest new perfume.
Remember the home: If she loves to look good, she probably wants her home to look good, too. A lot of clothing designers are also coming out with home decor lines. Pick up a chic contemporary vase or some bold throw pillows to bring out her sense of style at home.
Choose gift cards: A fashion-forward mom knows what she likes and what she wants. If you're not as talented at picking out the hottest new fashions as your mother is, why not leave that part up to her and get a gift card instead? Give it to her with a homemade card or tuck it into a bouquet of flowers.
