Sunday is Mother's Day, so every day until then, we're offering ideas to inspire your gift-giving.

Collectible -- check. Chic -- check. Crafted in Paris -- check. In other words, her fashion fantasy.
You just can’t go wrong with an iconic heathery tweed Chanel handbag, refreshed by multicolored sorbet shades, a cropped icy pink handle and a summery cluster of insect, flower and logo charms. Hitting stores just in time for Mother’s Day, it’s the ultimate now-and-forever present. Classic Chanel Bag with Flap in Tweed/Ruthenium, $4,100 at the Chanel boutique in Beverly Hills. Call (310) 278-5500 or (800) 550-0005.

Ascarf 
And then there’s this heavenly little wrap, destined to become mom’s second skin all summer. French designer Damir Doma’s ethereal scarf in airy cashmere gauze is trimmed with flowy silver-banded petals for a lovely, texture-rich finishing touch. $610 in oatmeal or black, 30 by 55 inches at www.monamoore.com.

AHermesUn Make her Parisian dream a multisensory experience with a spritz of new Hermès fragrance Un Jardin Sur Le Toit, an homage to the flagship store’s roof garden at 24 Faubourg Saint Honoré. A fruity floral scent, it evokes summer with crisp notes of apple, pear and magnolia grounded by earthy grass and loamy soil. It’s a gift of escapism. $90 1.6 oz. or $125 3.3 oz eau de toilette at usa.hermes.com or Hermès, Beverly Hills; (310) 278-6440.
