If your mom likes nothing more than waking up slowly and luxuriating in the early hours of the a.m. with a cup of coffee, she’ll adore this short hooded robe from the Boudoir Basics collection of Naked Princess as a Mother’s Day gift. It’s made of modal French terry with a little spandex for comfort, and has side pockets and an attached belt for an alluring cinched waist. Might we suggest bringing her breakfast in bed as you gift it to her?

ACCENT Custom Jewelry is a company that will bring your idea to life in a three-dimensional necklace or bracelet, whether it’s Mom’s nickname, her sacred mantra, notes from her favorite song, an outline of her beloved pug, or another one-of-a-kind design you know she’ll love. Choose gold or silver and one of three chain lengths.
