Check out our top picks for mom this Mother's Day, including jewelry she'll love, one comfy and stylish summer dress, and a no-cooking solution!

Sentimental Silver necklace; We Love You Mommy necklace




Close to Your Heart

Buy one for mom, celebrate a special friend, or give yourself a Mother's Day gift to remind you that every day is Mother's Day, really: Sentimental Silver has a wide array of customizable, handcrafted pure silver jewelry with just the right amount of hipness. The casual ball chains come in varying lengths, and you can mix and match tags for just the necklace you want.

(Orders take two to three weeks production time; prices start at $35, $140 as pictured)




Dove indulgences; Dove ice cream, ice cream bars

Sweet Surrender

Skip your midafternoon coffee run and substitute a decadent pick-me-up instead - cappuccino-and-java-chip-flavored ice cream. And let's be real, at 70 calories in each individually wrapped treat from the DOVE® Ice Cream Miniatures Café Collection, you'd have to eat the whole box to be as decadent as a caramel-foam-whip-latté from you-know-where. Another tempting addition to the DOVE® flavor range: chocolate cherry amaretto. ($3.99 per pint or box of 14 minis)

Yala bamboo maxi dress; maxi dress for mom




Long Story Short

Maxi dresses are an undeniable trend - they can be seen all over the pages of celeb mags and hanging in the windows of H&M - but consider that it's one trend that keeps coming back for good reason: They're easy to dress up or down, more comfy than your well-worn yoga pants, and flattering to most body types. Treat yourself to this versatile piece from Yala, in the yummiest fabric derived from bamboo (it's lushly soft and environmentally friendly, too!). (Greta Maxi Dress, 95 percent viscose from bamboo, 5 percent spandex; $89)




Freshology dessert; Fresh Mommy meal delivery service


Eat Up (No Cooking Involved)

Step away from the stove! Allow yourself the luxury of gourmet meals that are healthier than takeout (don't deny that pizza's a standby for frenzied spring evenings, people - we're all in the same boat). Ask your hubby to take charge of family meal planning during May (who's to say it's not Mother's MONTH?) and let Freshology do the work for just you. With the Fresh Mommy meal delivery service, you get customizable meals that are cooked fresh, then delivered twice weekly to your door. There are no preservatives or dehydrated ingredients - just nutritious food designed to make post-baby weight loss easy, whether you're still nursing or months past delivery. Think roasted lamb loin with saffron cauliflower purée and sautéed baby veggies. And dessert's on the menu (pictured). ($45.95 per day includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and dessert)
