Mother's Day, May 11, 2014, is a celebration of mothers, grandmothers, surrogate moms, and other influential women, observed by the ones that love them.

From birthstone keepsakes to fashionable pieces for the athletic mom, here are some inspiring Mother's Day gift ideas to fit a variety of personal styles.

Memorable accessories from IsabelleGraceJewelry are all the rage with celebrity moms such as Alyson Hannigan, Tia Mowry, Tori Spelling, and others.

The company offers a range of unique charms and necklaces that can be personalized with names, birthdays, initials, and anniversaries. Each item is handcrafted for a one-of-a-kind gift that is perfect for a young mother or a mom who likes simple, meaningful pieces.


A mom on the go is sure to enjoy functional yet fashionable pieces that make her workouts and active days a little easier.

Urban Halo offers headbands, or "halos," that are no slip, no sweat, and no headache, and polarized sunglasses that reduce glare and protect the eyes from harmful UV rays.

Under Armour's ArmourFusion frames are lightweight, durable, and stylish, and have a "three-point grip" that ensures the sunglasses won't fall off. A goodie bag with a stylish headband, sunglasses, filtered water bottle, and other sporty items are a thoughtful gift for an active aunt or godmom.

Celebrities such as Kym Whitley, Vivica Fox, and Marilu Henner love the calendar pendants made by Not Just Any Old Day, and at only $55 and up, it may be the perfect gift for your mother too.

The pendant is in the shape of a key, and has a small calendar at the top. A Swarovski crystal marks whatever important date you choose—whether it be a birthday, anniversary, date of adoption, or other memorable occasion. The company also makes pendants of calendars with a crown on top, indicating a date that rules the wearer's heart.
