Stars tend to have access to the cream of the crop, so we pay close attention when they hone in on a favorite, especially when that star happens to also be a mom (after all, as the saying goes, mother knows best).
From glow-getting skin care to day-starting coffee makers (and some shiny baubles along the way), read on for a list of celeb-loved fashion, beauty, food and home gift ideas worthy of gifting your icon of a mom this holiday.
Best celebrity-loved gifts
For the girl on the go, there’s perhaps no better gift than a carryall, and Everlane’s has the star seal of approval. We’re especially loving this machine-washable Do-It-All Tote, which is made of renewed plastic bottles and can be worn over the shoulder or as a crossbody for added convenience. (If she already has a signature bag, the brand’s loafers are another star choice.)
While you’re at it, consider upgrading her undergarments with some Skims, known for their smooth fabrics and inclusive sizing — and founded by one of Hollywood’s most infamous moms! Available in 25+ shades, this square-neck bodysuit feels like second skin and goes with everything.
What would water play be without a little Funboy, known for its iconic inflatables? The durable, highly-Instagrammable Chaise Lounger and Yacht are among celeb #PoolSelfie standbys for soaking up some much-needed fun in the sun (just don’t forget the SPF!).
This foundation, which has over 588K likes on Sephora’s site alone, is pretty much the gold standard of red-carpet foundations, often hailed by celebrity makeup artists for its expansive shade range (there are 40 total) and ability to create a flawless, airbrush-like finish that can be built upon for customized coverage. If you find gifting foundation intimidating, the brand’s Eyes to Kill Lengthening Mascara is also sure to please.
Help them create a celeb-worthy ambiance with a candle from Diptyque, which has made its way into the homes of many A-listers.

Show her you care about her and the planet with a pair of Allbirds, which are made from renewable materials and have graced some of Hollywood’s most famous feet. These cushioned loungers — currently available in 11 color combos — will support her every step and just so happen to be machine-washable for easy upkeep.
With all the high-end designer denim labels at their fingertips, celebs can still appreciate a good ole pair of Levi’s. We’re partial to the brand’s Original Fit — available in a range of washes — for a timeless wardrobe classic your mom can wear for years to come.
It’s no secret that stars love their leggings, and Alo Yoga’s “moto” has become a staple for their stretchy fit and sleek, day-to-night appeal. Get them for the fitness enthusiast who hasn’t lost her rock and roll edge (The “Vapor" is another popular celeb pick).

Gifting a runner? Put some pep in her step with a pair of sneakers from Brooks. The “Ghost” is among star picks for its supportive cushion, smooth stride, and fun color combos (we’re also big fans of the Nightlife version for added visibility during evening treks).
Comfort connoisseurs have been outspoken about their love of Barefoot’s fluffy range of blankets, woven with the brand’s signature CozyChic knit. The home and family-friendly design doesn’t pill or wrinkle, and can be washed on cold and laid flat to dry for proper hygiene (we especially love the Stone shade for complementing a range of decors).
Support their health and fitness journey with this sleek smartwatch from Fitbit, relied on by celebs for keeping track of their steps and other wellness stats. Fitbit also offers a range of interchangeable bands for switching up her style.
Help her relax (finally) with a comfy and oh-so-chic set of statement PJs from Printfresh. The brand’s Bagheera pattern — available in a rainbow of shades — is a star select for lounging in style. (Bonus points if you throw in a matching robe!)
