If there’s anyone in your life who deserves an extravagant gift, it’s your mom, and Mother’s Day is a perfect time to show her a little extra love. Now, if your mom is anything like mine, she spoils everyone in her life except herself. That’s why when Mother’s Day comes around, I love to go big and treat her to something I know she’d never buy herself. From an over-the-top bouquet of flowers and her favorite high-end chocolates to a luxuriously silky set of sheets and that pricey Dutch oven she’s had her eye on for years, the options are truly endless. Below, you’ll find 26 of the best splurge-worthy Mother’s Day gifts (many that made Apartment Therapy’s Best Lists) that your mom is sure to love.

It also comes in nine color options and two different fabric styles, making this the ultimate travel companion.

Warning: You may end up picking up a set for yourself, too.
