For the mom who's a total lady boss, gift her this Dagne Dover signature tote this Mother's Day. The sophisticated bag will keep all her daily essentials organized without weighing her down or feeling too bulky. You can never go wrong with black, but if you know she likes a little color in her wardrobe it's also available in eight other shades. It can fit up to 15-inch laptop and is large enough to hold a change of clothes, shoes, a water bottle, and planner. Yeah, we're impressed too. ($265; dagnedover.com)

Rebecca Minkoff Clutch

If she doesn't already have a neutral clutch in her closet that she can carry to almost any event, Mother's Day is your chance to help add it to her collection. (And let's be honest, Rebecca Minkoff is always a great choice.) Its classic envelope design makes any outfit look a little more high-end and has six card slots inside to hold her ID, credit card, hotel key, or whatever else she needs on hand. Just like the backpack featured above, this clutch has a magnetic front flap to safely hold everything in. ($95; shopbop.com)

On My Level Bag

If you are your mom's workout buddy, make sure she hits the gym with the proper equipment, starting with this Lululemon On My Level Bag. Its water-repellent material is available in three colors (we have our eyes on pink taupe), and it even has a mesh panel to separate sweaty gear from everything else. When she's not using it to transport workout clothes, it can double as a weekender bag or carry-on for her next trip. ($148; lululemon.com)
