4 min read

Who better to advise on what to shop for mom this year than a fellow mom and fashion director for one of the most trusted brands in fashion retail?

Marissa Galante Frank, a mom of two and Fashion Director at Bloomingdale’s, helped curate the ultimate Mother’s Day shopping list for “GMA.”

Whether you are shopping for the mother figure in your life or maybe for your best friend celebrating her first Mother’s Day, putting thought and effort into your gift will make the occasion feel even more thought out and special.

“Moms spend so much time listening and trying to understand everyone else. I’ve found that the best gifts aren’t necessarily the grandest gestures but the little things that make you (or your mom) feel understood, listened to and valued,” Frank told “Good Morning America.”

If the woman you are shopping for loves fashion trends, Frank suggests sticking to a timeless piece of fashion that can be styled in many different ways like the cashmere travel wrap scarf below. Or if you want to go with a more personalized touch a piece of jewelry that is tied to their children is thoughtful and unique.

“After I had my second child, I received a pendant that was an emerald surrounded by diamonds on a gold coin. These are both of my children’s birthstones and I wear this charm almost every day because not only is it a beautiful charm but it also reminds me of what I value most in life – my family,” Frank added.

Marissa’s top picks to shop:

“One of my favorite picks is always a lightweight cashmere wrap, a great gift for every type of mom. This can be used on a plane as a blanket, worn as a wrap for an outdoor wedding or used as a scarf in the fall,” she said.

“The bugaboo donkey is luxury strolling at its finest. It can be converted to a double stroller and is one of the best options for moms like me who have a baby and toddler because the kids can face each other while strolling. This gift will help to elevate any new mom’s everyday routine!” she said.

“You should think about the upcoming season and what your mom might need in her wardrobe, all the while keeping in mind her style. A beach bag is always a great gift because it can be both functional and fashionable,” she said.
