Breakfast, in bed or out, is a fine choice, especially when brunch tacos are involved (not to mention boozy drinks). And that woodshop creation from one's high schooler will surely make a fine...paperweight. But are all the moms in your life—from the honorary aunts to the BFFs—really getting what they want? What they deserve? This Mother's Day, don't let any mamas settle for the same old stuff. After all, that's what friends are for.

With this hand-sewn loungewear set from Mahina Luna owner Hanna Salzberg, vintage clothing shop OURstore reaffirms every mom's "comfort is king" decree. Disco ball, heels, and beret sadly not included.

The braided friendship bracelet of her summer camp days just got a stylish upgrade. Wax-coated nylon transitions from work to play dates with ease, while sweet charm detailing proves that moms can have nice things.

May every mom's cup of coffee always be ready—and made with stellar beans that give back to cycling nonprofits. 

Handmade in Portland by ceramicist Victoria Buchler, this adorable stoneware planter comes in a matte finish and playful speckle pattern for all the green thumbs and plant-killers out there.

Easy-care plants for the win. This red Chinese evergreen's unique pink-tinged leaves are just a sweet bonus. Would your mama friend prefer a cactus to match her proudly prickly exterior? EcoVibe's got way more flora options.

Untucked, tied, buttoned, layered. This tailored yet comfortable shirt is as versatile as she is.

What's better than an artisan-made gift? A whole box of 'em. Tender Loving Empire's self-care gift box has three price-tier options stocked with items from Portland makers. Think a Latika Beauty bath bomb to a Dana Herbert lavender eye pillow.

Faceted crystals in a striking yellow and black design make a simple statement. Grayling donating 100 percent of proceeds from sales of this necklace to Black-led endometriosis awareness organization Endo Black makes an even bigger one.

Help her graduate from diaper bag to the land of the stylish. This crossbody purse is roomy and durable, with a subtle metallic lunar phases print that's anything but utilitarian.
