If there's one gift that will *never* disappoint, it's a designer bag. Especially if we're talking Kate Spade handbags. While these beauties can easily cost a quarter of your rent, the brand is blessing us with an exception for Mother's Day. From now through May 12, you can enjoy 30 percent off your order. So I'll say what I know you're thinking: This is the perfect opportunity to snag gifts for your favorite stylish moms (and, who are we kidding, yourself!).

Looking for a classic option she'll actually want to wear on repeat? Consider this leather Bleecker zip-top tote (was $328, now $161) with one of the roomiest interiors ever, or the Katy convertible bag (was $378, now $186), a darling little crossbody that's more functional than you think. And if you're doing some personal browsing—which I totally support—the super sleek Knott crossbody (was $198, now $97) is definitely worth treating yourself to. Basically, you're bound to find something on sale for mom, grandma and your favorite aunt, so get your card ready and prepare to shop these seven stylish handbags that everyone wants this Mother's Day.

As I mentioned, your mom will swoon over this structured leather tote for several reasons, but not least of all because it can fit all her work and travel essentials. In other words, she won't ever have to choose between packing her 13-inch laptop or her work binder, because this style has a super roomy interior. As for the other features, such as the zip-top closure, interior zip pocket and faille lining? Well, they make the bag even more irresistible and long-lasting. And who wouldn't love a tote that's been elegantly designed from the inside out?

One reviewer says she bought this leather crossbody for her mom, and, unsurprisingly, she totally loved it. "She wears it every day, and it matches everything she wears," she explains. "It fits her keys, phone and wallet perfectly, and it's not bulky at all! [I] might order one for myself!" Now that you know this pick is mom-approved, you can't go wrong, especially since it has pockets for days (two on the inside and one on the outside, to be exact) as well as an adjustable shoulder strap that can be removed when she needs a clutch. Right now, it's up for grabs in several colors, but I'm guessing that won't be the case for much longer, so you know what to do—pick up two (one for you, one for mama)!

You'll have to decide whether this trendy mini tote (which can double as a crossbody) is better for you or your giftee. But first, you should know that despite its small size, it's quite roomy, with dual interior compartments to help keep everything nice and organized inside. And while several colors are still in stock (for now), one buyer says, "I went [to the] store and fell in love with the beautiful olive-green the knot [detail] on both sides of the bag adds an extra touch." Oh, you're snagging this bag for yourself, you say? Same.

The mama who is obsessed with the quiet luxury trend will adore this minimalist convertible bag, which is so sleek on the outside that you wouldn't believe its functionality on the inside. Given its plush microsuede lining, two pockets and more than enough space to fit your phone, I wouldn't blame you if you bought this bag for the interior alone. Of course, it also boasts a shiny hardware accent on the snap-front flap, which seriously amps up its luxe aesthetic. Throw in the convertible leather shoulder strap that adjusts to take it from a shoulder bag to a crossbody, and you've got yourself a little purse with *big* potential.

This sporty Kate Spade messenger is selling fast, and I'll tell you why. Not only does it have an attachable, adjustable logo crossbody strap that takes it from chic to effortlessly cool, but it also looks *just* like the bag Taylor Swift recently rocked to Coachella, so you know the style has a celebrity stamp of approval. It also has more pockets than you think (four throughout, y'all!), so if your mom tends to be a little less put-together, look no further. This bag will bring some organization to her life, plus it's made of luxe pebbled leather and features a zip-top closure, so she can look fly and feel secure knowing her items won't fly out. Just remember, it won't be on sale forever, so buy it for her now while it's as low as $181!

Want to make your mom feel extra special this Mother's Day? Of course you do! In that case, let me introduce you to this timeless leather shoulder bag that the brand says is sure to become an everyday favorite. The flap design is so classy, she'll feel like a million bucks whenever she brings it out—which will be often, because did I mention that it has several interior pockets as well as a back slip pocket? Yup, it'll become her go-to purse once she learns it fits all her essentials, from her phone to her wallet to her new Chanel lipstick.

First things first, this spacious work tote is the perfect travel buddy for jet-setters and commuters alike, primarily because it has a laptop compartment, along with a turnlock tab closure to ensure that everything stays safely secured inside while you (or your mom) are hustling to get to where you need to be. Reviewers also appreciate its classic ladylike look and beautiful construction (so you can count on it sticking around for years to come). "The bag holds my laptop, tablet, charger, phone and several textbooks. [I] love the flap! Keeps it all in place," one raves. So, the hard part won't be deciding whether or not to snag it on sale for less than $300 now, but deciding which pebbled leather hue to get it in.
