Mother’s Day Gift Ideas | Accessories Council’s #ACTopPicks for Mother’s Day

The day of celebrating mothers is getting closer and closer. Mother’s Day is now less than two weeks away and it’s really time to think about gifts for mom. Whether you’re looking for jewelry for mom (our mom loves turquoise jewelry), or other fashion accessories such as handbags, belts, scarves, or maybe even a bottle or two of wine, you can find it all thanks to the Accessories Council. Once again, the go-to organization for all things accessories, bring you their top gift picks for moms with Mother’s Day gifts that both of you will enjoy (ladies, you may find yourself snapping up one or more of these gifts for yourself).


You can never go wrong with jewelry as a gift for mom and the accessories council highlighted some stunning pieces from Mona Assemi, Kemi Designs, Moira Anne Artisan, Jewels of Ocean, Ragini Mittal, Stephen Dweck, and Roman & Sunstone. If your mom loves turquoise jewelry, we recommend the beautiful Roman & Sunstone Heart Beaded Stretch Bracelet ($18.00), the eye-catching Ragini Mittal Wheel of Fortune Ring ($150.00), or Stephen Dweck’s Hand Carved Turquoise Ring, Earrings, and Bracelet ($695.00, $545.00, $1,375.00 at Neiman Marcus). If the mothers in your life love more delicate pieces, we say check out the Hand-stamped and custom made Gold-Plate Necklace ($150.00) from Kemi Designs, or the 14kt Gold plated Zany Tassel Necklace ($288.00) from Mona Assemi.


No woman leaves the house without a bag, it’s a fact! Bags are as essential to women as clothing, so of course a great bag makes a great gift for Mother’s Day. At this special Accessories Council event, we saw top bag pics from Luxchilas, Be Brilliant Bags, Banfi Zambrelli, Hedgren, and Vanesa Rey. For the mom-on-the-go, we love the Be Brilliant Bags Brilliant Body Tote ($265.00) because you can store your heels in a compartment at the bottom (say goodbye to carrying that extra bag for your shoes ladies). We also love the Luxchilas Mochila Fringe Bag ($450.00) because not only does it look fabulous and on-trend with fringe, it also helps support sustainable work for the Wayuu Tribe families of Columbia. Lastly, although it technically isn’t a bag, the Vanesa Rey iPhone Cases ($199.00 – $209.00) are just too cool and too chic not to be in the must-carry everyday category.


They may be small, and you might not wear them everyday but these essentials will make mom’s day a lot brighter…..and more chic. these gifts from Perpetual Shade, Mariem, Printed Village, Dearfoams, and MCM. Brighten up her daytime look with the chic “Oh Bouy” Scarf ($38.00) from Printed Village, the must-have MCM ‘M’ Reversible Belt ($150.00), or a classically chic pair of Mariem Ballerina Flats “No. 3” ($240.00). If mom loves to travel, arm her with stylish comfort with one of the Perpetual Shade Metallic Luxury Silk Sleep Masks ($69.00) and the Dearfoams Sequined Ballerinas ($34.00), so she can truly enjoy her flight.


There’s a saying that goes, “Sunglasses, like red lipstick, changes everything!” What better way to give mom a new view on life than with a great pair of sunnies from Safilo Polaroid, Marcolin Swarovski, and Pink Sheep Heiress. Mom will look super stylish while protecting herself from dangerous glare when she wears the Safilo’s Polaroid Women’s Sunglasses ($75.00 – $98.00), highlight her natural elegance with the Marcolin Swarovski Edith Sunglasses ($175.00), or give her the Pink Sheep Heiress Sheep Shades ($180.00), the new, durable “It” eyewear made from acetate.


For the mom who loves all things beauty, you will love the Isaac Mizrahi, and Glitter Buzz Style beauty pics from the Accessories Council. Complete your look with the stunning color palettes from the True by Isaac Mizrahi Color Cosmetics Line ($10.00 – $68.00) which contains innovative antioxidant skin care, boasting CoQ10, green and white teas, Vitamins A and E, and marine algae, and color cosmetics and makeup that is cruelty free. Keep mom’s lips perfectly conditioned in Glitter Buzz Style Gala Lipstick ($11.00), available in a variety of lipstick shades that pop, and boasts jojoba oil, and vitamins A,C, E.


Lastly, toast to the amazing woman in your life with a Raphael Vineyards Vineyard and Wine tasting Experience. You don’t have to travel far to give mom a wine tasting experience, just a quick trip to Long Island to get to know the pleasures of wine making and have a delightful experience that includes a world-class Merlot, and a bright, crisp Sauvignon Blanc.

We hope these amazing picks have helped you get a better idea of what to get your mom, wife, sister, daughter, or friend for Mother’s Day. We’re sure they will love receiving any of these great gifts.
