She can pay homage to the East End and impress guests with UncommonGreen's Island Maps Glassware ($14 to $15, www.theuncommongreen.com). Available in wine and rocks barware, the unique collection features several tropical island destinations, including Shelter Island and Block Island, each of which are etched with a map of the locale.

We've all had one of those days where someone looks at you and goes, "oh, you look tired." Prevent that "innocent" insult by boosting her glow with the HydroPeptide Rapid Radiance Set ($138, hydropeptide.com). The three step system includes an Exfoliating Cleanser, Face Lift, and Eye Authority that will energize skin and address all the signs of aging.

Reese Witherspoon is one stylish mom, so it's no surprise that Draper James, the actress' clothing and Southern lifestyle brand, has several chic Mother's Day options. Give mom the gift of at home R&R with the limited-edition Relaxin' Mama Gift Set ($225, www.draperjames.com), which includes an Orange Blossom Candle, Louisiana Lilac Nightshirt and Draper James Throw.

If you've read a beauty magazine, blog or website recently, you'll know that Korean skin care products are all the rage at the moment. If she's looking to hop on the bandwagon, get her the Amarte True Brightening™ Collection Set ($257, www.amarteskincare.com). The kit will help even skin tone and brighten her complexion with Daily Exfolipowder, Aqua Mist Toner, Aqua Lotion and Aqua Cream. And, if she's not sure which order to use the products in, it even includes instructions on how to layer them for optimal results as recommended by board certified dermatologist Craig Kraffert, President of Amarte.
