No one deserves it more.

When it comes to memorable Mother’s Day gifts, you’ve done the flowers and brunch reso routine again and again — now it’s time to up the ante. These splurge-y picks — silk pyjamas, designer earrings and a 24k gold-infused face mask among them — are the kinds of luxurious Mother’s Day gifts she wouldn’t ordinarily scoop up for herself.

Read on for knock-it-out-of-the-park presents that’ll satisfy her taste for the finer things.

What to look for in the best splurge-y Mother’s Day gifts

Sky’s the limit when budget is but a number. For the most deserving mom, get creative and go all out on a highly idealistic (but undeniably desirable) designer handbag she’s been coveting; a splashy soy wax candle that’ll transport her to a more Zen moment; or an island-hopping vacay where the only must do on the agenda is to relax. The goal with these luxurious Mother’s Day gifts is to find a special something that’ll make her say “wow.”

Seriously, she could be in her go-to school drop-off uniform — jeans and a tee, natch — and these would help her feel polished and put-together even as she’s extinguishing a major morning meltdown.
