Love Mom: Designers’ Picks For Mother’s Day

In celebration of the special women in our lives, a few of our favorite designer moms share gifting tips and their wish-lists.

We’re celebrating Mother’s Day with a little help from some of our designer friends. If you are undecided on what to give mom, let these ladies help you out, courtesy of their personal exquisite gift edit. Designer moms Jennifer Fisher, Maud Heline, Brooke Neidich, Ulla Johnson, Andrea Lieberman, Cathy Waterman, Jennie Kwon, and Jennifer Meyer shared what they hope to receive on May 8th. We want to know what’s on your wish list—in addition to spending time with the family, of course—so follow along and share your picks using the #LoveMom hashtag on Instagram.


"This Mother's Day, I'd like to spend the afternoon leisurely hiking the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu with my family and grabbing a delicious brunch at a cozy place nearby like Malibu Farm. We, of course, like to look cute while brunching, so wearing a Janessa Leone hat and Ulla Johnson dress would be a nice gift from my fam." -Jennie Kwon
"The books Hubert de Givenchy and To Audrey with Love sound intriguing, as Hubert de Givenchy did a small collection exclusively for Barneys when the uptown store first opened. After seeing a black Givenchy dress and red satin evening coat in the store windows, I picked Mallory up from school and bribed her with chocolate to sit on the dressing room floor so I could try them on! I still have these pieces and have worn them together and separately all around the world." -Brooke Neidich
"Family vacation on an island in the Pacific Northwest means a lot of time on the beach—with SPF 100 and a handmade parasol, of course." -Cathy Waterman
“Because I am constantly cooking and entertaining, I have a large bowl collection that I've amassed over the years. My husband knows to keep his eye out for special unusual pieces for me.” -Jennifer Fisher
"Music keeps me going, keeps me inspired. Needless to say, Tidal is always playing at our house and, while we love a Sunday morning dance party, I also do my best sketching late night when the house is quiet and the kids are asleep. These Pryma headphones would be the ultimate solution to keep the music on without disturbing the rest of my family!" -Andrea Lieberman
"For every important step in life, I like to collect bracelets so I can wear them every day, as each reminds me of a story or a person. This "initial C Disk Bracelet" from Jennifer Meyer would be the ideal gift because my daughter and husband's names both start with C." -Maud Heline
“Mother's Day this year will be especially awesome because it falls on my son’s seventh birthday! My most treasured gifts are always the cards, artwork, and photo mugs from my children, but if my husband is reading this, feel free to get me the Saint Laurent “Jen” Crossbody Bag." -Jennifer Meyer
"Two of my favorite mothers are my mom and my sister Sarah. This year, I want to get them a little something to show just how much I love and appreciate them, like this 'Love' Charm Bracelet." -Jennifer Meyer
"For Mother's Day, I would like to get my daughter the Striped Boxy Top. It looks fantastic on her, and it would also look great on mom!" -Nili Lotan
"If money were no object, I would love this beautiful diamond bracelet handmade in India—so breathtaking and timeless." -Ulla Johnson
“Gold accessories always have a place on my bookshelves.” -Jennifer Fisher
