1. Faithfull The Brand Frederikke Sun Hat
She’s headstrong (hello, Ram) and she loves the great outdoors (always bounding over the next challenging sand dune or nature trail). So she needs a sun hat to keep her cool, and to keep that fiery Aries from getting lost in all the sunshine glare.
2. Our Place Always Pan
She’s a bit absent-minded, so she’ll appreciate not having to assemble too many cooking utensils to make dinner. This one-pot cooking wonder is on sale for Mother’s Day, so get your combination fryer, saute pan, skillet and colander (with spoon rest on the handle) for her pronto.
3. Roberto Coin Princess Charms 18k Yellow Gold & Diamond Initial Charm
Sparkly diamonds are her birthstone, and we know she’ll appreciate you acknowledging her hard-headed ram nature with nature’s hardest gemstone. (It’s also fine if you want to keep that special irony to yourself.)
4. Beauty Pie Membership
Taureans are ruled by the planet Venus, which governs beauty. So the Taurus mom will want to browse Beauty Pie, the site that the New York Times raved about that sells members luxury makeup, skincare, bodycare, haircare, fragrance and scented candles at cost. Gift her a three-month membership, which enables her to purchase up to $100 worth of sleekly packaged products a month.

21. Joie Vista Dress
For all the times your Libra mom couldn’t decide what to wear (she can be a bit indecisive), gift her this perfect dress for everything from a casual weekend afternoon of shopping to hosting brunch at her house. Made of cotton/modal, this dress is super-soft, and the sleek-but-not-tight shape makes everyone look chic.

Sign of the water bearer? She’s gotta stay glowing. So give her a product she’s probably never tried but is going to love—a soothing face mist. Extracts of oat, aloe and other botanicals make this refreshing mist a complexion-calming mini-facial in one pump.
32. Brooklinen Linen Robe
It’s meant to be used for to and from the bath and over jammies, you know, like a robe. But the clever Aquarius woman will immediately see that it’s so elegant and versatile, it’s good enough to wear out into the wide world as a swimsuit coverup and a lightweight summer coat.
36. Jenni Kayne Alpaca Cocoon Cardigan
Since the sign of the fish likes nothing more than to take long walks by the windy ocean or a breezy lake, she’ll get a lot of use out of this gorgeous knit. And you’ll love showing her she deserves a nice soft sweater cuddle.
