    With Mother's Day right around the bend, who better to consult on all matters of celebrating and gift giving than high society's chicest mom about town, Lauren Santo Domingo?

    The co-founder of designer destination Moda Operandi knows a thing or two about curating the ultimate luxe life, whether she's sharing shoppable pieces from her own closet or giving her over 300,000 followers a peek at her perfectly plush home interiors, tablescapes, and favorite florals. What can we say, some people are just born with good taste. 

    And it's to those people we must defer when we're in need of the perfect present. 

    From chic sips to foolproof buys, read on for LSD's must-haves for mom.

    Favorite type of flowers?
    Anything fresh, seasonal and local.

    Celebratory sip of choice? 
    Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé - I'm obsessed with the bottle. 

    What's the smoothest way to drop hints about a present you're pining for? 
    I expect nothing, that way I'm never disappointed.

    Perfect gift for a new mom?
    Are you even a mother unless you have your child's initial on a necklace? Forgot a push present? There's always a day at Rescue Spa + babysitting.

    Foolproof gift that'll work for anyone?
    Candlesticks - more personal (and chicer) than a candle.

    Last minute gift she won't realize is last minute? 
    Loria Stern shortbread cookies.

    Luxurious, no budget gift?
    A set of sterling silver coozies. Or Vladimir Kanevsky porcelain flowers, which can be special ordered through Moda upon request.
