Grandma. Stepmom. Favorite aunt. You know – the lady who packed lunches, let you take the car out, and gave you a pep talk after your first failed relationship. Now, it’s time to show her how much you care. Can’t decide what to pick up? Take cues from a few of our associates.

 Mother's Day Gift Picks from Rue La La

Mother’s Day is almost here, which means it’s time to start thinking about the perfect way to show your appreciation. For a little inspiration, we asked four of our own associates to share their most memorable gifting stories. Read up, then begin planning the most epic Mother’s Day yet.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Anna V., Manager, Boutique Production
“My son, Mason, made me a hand-painted flower pot. He was only one at the time, and he was very proud of himself.”

Joanna B., Men’s Content Editor
“When I was a kid, I whittled an entire duck out of a block of wood for my mom. I don’t think she’ll ever forget that.”

Ashley B., Copywriter
“I brought my mom to brunch at this ridiculously cutesy place. We took selfies in front of the restaurant (my mother’s never felt so cool).”

Lynn V., Manager, Boutique Production 
“Last year, when my daughter Ava had just learned to spell, she crafted me a card with the words ‘I Love You Mommy.’ It was so touching to see the words spelled out so beautifully.”

Our Best Mother’s Day Ever: The Gifts She Really Wants Boutique opens Friday, April 4, at 3PM ET.

The fact that our Members’ moms have style is practically a given. So, in honor of Mother’s Day, we gave you a chance to prove it and be featured on our login page – and we received an outpouring of photos and aphorisms on our Facebook and Twitter. With them, we compiled (drumroll, please)… today’s login. We couldn’t include every picture in the interest of space, but some of the others will get their due fame on our Twitter feed. Happy Mother’s Day! #MomStyle

Mom Style

We’ll cut right to the chase: we’d be lost without our moms. Not to mention our aunts, sisters, grandmothers, and all the other women out there who have paved the way to great style by making sure we didn’t leave the house sporting a pair of flannel PJ pants.

So this Mother’s Day, we’ve figured out the best way to say thanks: by proving to the world that her style’s unrivaled.

Send us a photo of your mom’s impeccable style or tweet us her best fashion advice to put her name in lights – or at least the chance to appear on our login page or social media channels. You can submit your photos and advice via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #momstyle.

We have a feeling this is one Mother’s Day gift she won’t soon forget.
