Whether you’re shopping for Mother’s Day or simply looking to spruce up your wardrobe or home, there are ample opportunities to do just that. We’ve scouted out plenty of beautiful finds, which can be procured either in-store or online. Here’s what we’re loving this month:
We’re suckers for a solid piece of jewelry, and this Cubist cuff in wood and turquoise totally fits the bill. Available at Hampden Clothing in Charleston (or online here), this hinged bracelet features rectangular turquoise cabochons. Available for $275.
Tat2 Designs bangles
Edgy meets elegant in these bangles by Tat2 Designs. Made of vintage silver and gold with crystal and pave inserts, these bangles can be worn singly or stacked.

FASHION & ACCESSORIES
Sleeveless Lola dress

Plus, the wrinkle-resistant Catalina cloth makes it great for moms on the go, and the adorable pattern makes it fun for day or night. Snag one today at J.McLaughlin for $205.
Whether you’re heading to the beach this summer or just want to pretend that you are, head to H. Stockton Atlanta (or shop online) for this super cute tote bag, $144, featuring graphics of ladies lounging by the pool. Make sure to show off the other side of the bag as well, so everyone knows you consider your look from all 360 degrees.
Warby Parker sunglasses
Sunglasses may be hard to buy for someone else, but a gift card to Warby Parker will allow Mom to splurge and select her most favorite pair of sunnies. There are plenty of beautiful options available, and you can even “try them on” from the comfort of home. Ahhhhh, modern technology! We kinda love this pair — the “Banks” in sea smoke tortoise for $95 — but let her choose for herself.
Jack Rogers sandals
A casual summer sandal is a must for any woman’s wardrobe, and these Jack Rogers raffia slides are as comfortable as they are versatile. The neutral tones makes them highly versatile, and the can be dressed up or down. Find them online at jackrogersusa.com for $138 or wherever Jack Rogers are sold.

Stemless wine glasses
For casual get togethers — or simply a low-key night at home — Mom can still enjoy a nice glass of wine with these stemless wine glass. The set of four BPA-free plastic glasses look elegant but are sturdy enough to be used indoors or out. And if a mom doesn’t appreciate a functional wine glass, we don’t know who will! Find them at surlatable.com for $28.
It’s truly a dog’s life, if you spoil your pup with one of the ultra-comfy Mississippi Made donut dog beds from Hollywood Feed. With an outer ring that’s extra plumped up to the inner baffled pillow to the cover, these beds are made of materials sourced only in the United States. We found them for $68.98 to $154.98 at Hollywood Feed in Memphis, but click here to find a store near you.
Shaker & Spoon subscription
Warm weather calls for festive cocktails on the patio. Indulge that notion (and your inner mixologist) with a subscription to the Shaker & Spoon Cocktail Club. Every month, you’ll receive a box filled with everything you need to make four each of three different cocktails (12 drinks total) with one variety of liquor; the only thing not provided is the liquor itself. We test-drove the Amber Rum Box, which included all of the ingredients all the way down to the fresh lemons and limes (minus the rum) to make a Rum Old-Fashioned, a Rum Buck and a Rum Smash. While we’re no Tom Cruise in Cocktail, we sure had fun making playing bartender, and it was a fun way to spend an evening with friends. Four subscription levels are available; the longer the subscription, the more you save. Click here to learn more.
Everything mom makes comes from the heart, so give her the cookware to prove it. This petite heart-shaped cocotte by Le Creuset is perfect for creating delicious dishes, and it’s so sturdy it can go from the freezer to the broiler and everywhere in between. (Looking at you, dishwasher!) Available in three colors for $25. Click here to learn more.
