Thanks, Mom

Compiled by Meda Kessler

Even when she says she doesn’t want anything, give her something. And include a card and a big hug.

Tyler, The Creator’s buzzy accessory Golf le Fleur line caught the attention of Neiman Marcus, which is now carrying select items from the artist, including nail polish. The colors reflect Golf le Fleur’s pastel theme: Geneva Blue, Georgia Peach and Glitter. $20 each, Neiman Marcus

Let her know she’s the boss with Monica Rich Kosann’s Queen Bee necklace in 18-karat gold or the slim Bee Bangle from Julie Vos in 24-karat gold plate. Necklace, $1,295, Neiman Marcus; bracelet, $75, Lawrence’s

Give Mom some time on her own with a one- or two-night staycation at a luxury hotel such as the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. She’ll be pampered as soon as she pulls into the driveway of the storied Dallas hotel. Send flowers ahead of time and arrange for room service, too. Book at rosewoodhotels.com/en/mansion-on-turtle-creek-dallas

Flowers are always appreciated, especially if it’s a bouquet of unusual blooms and not your standard rose arrangement. Get something seasonal
(we love ranunculus) in her favorite color from your go-to floral shop.
