Shopping for mom can be a daunting task. Like, what do you get the person who literally gave you the gift of life and taught you most of what you know? Maybe a beauty product can’t exactly say, “Hey, thanks for instilling in me the values that make me the person I am today, but one of these offerings can come pretty close.”

Moms who love makeup can make things easier, of course, but this is the time of year when you want to step things up. If you’re basically Sephora VIB Rouge member because your mom’s vanity was always covered in products that seeped into your subconscious, then a luxe lipstick makes a great Mother’s Day present. Or if your momma scared you into properly moisturizing, a high-end skin care product just might be the gift that will say “thanks.”

We’ve rounded up the 32 of the most luxe beauty gifts to give for Mother’s Day, ranging from top shelf skin care, to fancy facial devices, and everything in-between.
