Jo Malone London is one of the most recognizable luxury candle brands in the world, and its Deluxe candles are grand without being too over-the-top. The second-largest size in Jo Malone London’s high-end lineup, the Deluxe candle is handmade in the UK with unique fragrance oils blended into slowly warmed wax. The thick glass jar adds the perfect luxe touch to any space.

Lime, Basil & Mandarin is one of the brand’s best-selling scents. Shoppers say it smells like all of the best qualities of summer rolled into one. The refreshing, tropical scent has notes of peppery basil, aromatic white thyme and an unexpected twist of lime.

2. Jo Malone London Myrrh & Tonka Cologne Intense, $196

If wearable fragrances are more your mom’s jam, Jo Malone London is also widely known for its luxury “intense” unisex options. Like its candles, the brand takes both product quality and packaging extremely seriously, so you won’t need to wrap this before gifting it to your mom this Mother’s Day.

The Myrrh & Tonka fragrance is one of Jo Malone London’s most highly reviewed. It has notes of lavender, rich myrrh, warm almond, lush vanilla and tonka bean. If your mom loves deep, warm and lingering fragrances, this will instantly become her new signature scent.

Fossil’s line of vegan cactus bags, pouches and interchangeable straps is next level. Perfectly bridging the gap between sustainability and high-end fashion, these pieces are great for the woman who loves timeless pieces that go with everything.

If she prefers a larger carry-all bag that makes a bit more of a statement, the Fossil Kier Cactus Leather Tote is the one to get. She can customize this one with the same interchangeable colorful cactus straps in fun prints.

This sophisticated bag comes in seven colors and patterns and fits up to a 15-inch laptop. It also contains a removable zipper pouch on the inside, includes two adjustable and detachable shoulder straps and features a magnetic snap closure.

We included the best-selling TUSHY Classic 3.0 bidet attachment in our guide to gifts your mom will actually use every day. Consider the TUSHY Spa 3.0 as its older, cooler sibling. It’s packed with more useful features and is sure to also get daily use.

The main way the TUSHY Spa bidet differs from the Classic option is its adjustable water temperature mode. This feature lets you clean your bum with warm or cool fresh water, giving you a spa-like clean reminiscent of a luxury hotel bidet.

In addition to its temperature control feature, the TUSHY Spa 3.0 fits just about any toilet and promises to install in 10.5 minutes or less. It also has a new self-cleaning SmartSpray nozzle, a precision nozzle adjuster and water pressure controls.

Let’s be honest — a bougie mom isn’t going to settle for a regular toaster, so get her this stunning BALMUDA Toaster Oven that does way more than meets the eye.

This beautiful, game-changing countertop appliance uses steam to make sure your toast stays moist and chewy on the inside while getting crunchy on the outside. It comes with preset times to ensure that whatever type of bread, pastry or food you’re heating up, toasting or cooking is finished to perfection.

8. Smeg Electric Kettle in Gold, $240

Like BALMUDA, Smeg is known for its luxury kitchenware. However, this brand is more famous for its retro aesthetic and durable design. An electric kettle is a must-have for any kitchen, no matter how big or small. While most options are pretty affordable, this gold 57-fluid-ounce Smeg pick adds a touch of elegance and luxury to any kitchen.

It heats water quickly and doubles as the perfect countertop decor piece that’s sure to get the conversation started the next time your mom has company over.

9. Kate Spade New York Protective Hardshell Case for iPhone SE (2022), $44.99

“Luxury” doesn’t always have to mean “expensive,” and this floral Kate Spade New York iPhone case proves just that. The iPhone SE is the perfect smartphone for moms who want a device that’s not too big but still trendy, and this adorable Kate Spade New York case is the perfect protective barrier.

Its shock-resistant bumper and co-molded design will protect her phone from drops of up to 10 feet. It also works seamlessly with wireless charging and has a lightweight, easy-grip design that’s perfect for everyday use.

If you look closely, there’s crystal detailing on each flower bud, making this the right touch of affordable luxury.

If your mom is really into loungewear and loose-fitting fashion pieces, Monos’ Sevilla Top is a must-buy. It features flowing lines and a relaxed fit for all-day comfort and easy elegance. For added convenience, it’s also front-back reversible with a V-neck on one side and a high neck on the other, giving your mom two looks in one.

If you get your mom the Sevilla Top, why not complete the set with the matching pants? While they’re made of the same material as the top, these pants feature an A-line, flared, wide-leg silhouette that combines the freedom of pants with the femininity and clean lines of a maxi skirt.

The Monos Women’s Sevilla Pants come in the same colors and sizes as the top.
