The most foolproof gifts for mothers are accessories. There’s a way for mom to wear a scarf well, guaranteed; ditto for bracelets, necklaces or beauty products. The tough part is picking out something that matches her taste (so that she’ll actually wear it).
Stick with designs and products that are timeless yet have a modern edge. Mom will always need a nice perfume or a signature pair of sunglasses, so gift her some with a little verve (but not so much that they’ll be out by next season). These ten gifts will ensure that you’ll be in her good graces for years to come.
And don’t forget, flowers are mandatory.
