Dear Mom

We know it’s been a hard year. You deserve so much more, but here’s a little token of our love. And we understand if you’d like to spend the day by yourself. We promise not to bother you. Love, your family

Italian jewelry designer and onetime Halston model Elsa Peretti died in March, but her eye for timeless beauty makes her unforgettable. She debuted her first collection for Tiffany & Co. in 1974, and her minimalist, organic forms were instantly iconic. The classic Bone cuff, sculpted to conform to the left or right wrist, celebrates the superhero in any woman. Shown here is the small size in 18-karat yellow gold; other finishes are available. $12,500, Tiffany & Co. Photo courtesy of Tiffany & Co.

Paige Gemmel’s Staffordshire terrier chinoiserie print cotton pajamas are as cool as they are comfortable. They’re available as separates (the capri bottoms feature a drawstring elastic waist and ruffled hems) or as a nightshirt. $76 for the separates; $72 for the nightshirt, Keeping Up With the Joneses.
