When picking out a present—or shopping, period—the top rule is almost always to look for things that will get used on the regular. Buying something beautiful is nice, but if it ends up sitting untouched most of the time? Not really the point. 

With Mother’s Day on the horizon, it’s an important lesson to keep in mind as you go about finding the perfect gift. You’ll want to choose something that’s beautiful and special, of course, but also worthy of wearing basically every single day.

Here, a roundup of a few of the very best Mother’s Day gifts that she’ll use constantly (and think of you every single time).

A charming bracelet

When it comes to everyday jewelry, a simple bracelet is the sweetest of all. These silver links will look elegant whether she’s dressing up or down, and stack beautifully with other Pandora options (like their classic charm bracelets). When worn solo, the sparkly rose motif gives it an elevated bit of something extra; symbolically, it stands as a reminder of how much you love her.

Cozy slippers

No matter what state she’s in or how much time she spends at home these days, a great pair of slippers is always a good idea. Replace her beat-up pair with this fuzzy pick that’s cozy, cheeky, and has garnered more than 12,000 rave reviews. The open-toe design is a smart option for mothers who live in warmer climates and can be worn year-round, too.

Sparkly studs

Earrings she can wear every day—a style that will work with anything and everything, from dressed-up looks to her workout gear—might just be the ultimate gift. We love the abstract floral design of this Pandora pair, plus the super sparkly stone at the center. The look is classic enough to be worn regularly, yet the opposite of your basic studs, and the high-quality construction means they’ll always look just as good as the day you gifted them to her.

Stylish readers

Reading glasses don’t have to be cheap, fall-apart things meant to be begrudgingly worn. Rather, gift Mom a well-designed pair that counts as an accessory on their own. Chunkier than standard readers and with a cool ombre effect, this style could easily become a signature accessory (and with lenses that block blue light, they’re great for someone who reads on their computer frequently).

Luxe nail polish 

Fact: No one is ever upset unwrapping something from Chanel. We love that this lacquer is practical while also feeling super special. It’s a luxury she might not treat herself to, so take the plunge for her. Pick a version of her signature polish color or go with a classic. A cherry red is the sort of hue she could easily wear on repeat and will look both polished enough for work and fun enough for the weekend.

A chic silk scarf

Silk scarves have come back into vogue, and the elevated accessory is one your mom has likely always loved. Pick one from a contemporary designer to make sure it feels fresh. This pattern inspired by a classic bandana and puts a bohemian spin on classic floral prints. Whether she wears it around her neck, tied in her hair, or knotted on the strap of her bag, it can easily make an appearance every day.

A charm for her collection

For the mother who already wears a Pandora charm bracelet on the daily, designed to let her showcase her life’s story, add to her collection this holiday. It’s about time that she has a visible reminder of how much she’s appreciated not just on Mother’s Day, but every day. This heart is a stylish way to show her how much she means to you—the two-tone metal, displaying a 14k golden heart encased by a sterling silver one, nods to the idea of you carrying a bit of her heart in yours.

A customized case

The tech-savvy mother is likely already wearing her AirPods all the time. So while she doesn’t need a new set, chances are she could use a personalized holder. This chic Saffiano leather charging case can be monogrammed with up to three letters—you get to choose the font, color, and positioning—and comes with a greeting card.
