These Luxury Tote Bags Make The Best Mother’s Day Gifts


One simple Mother’s Day gift that never seems to get enough attention is luxury tote bags. Available in a range of styles from numerous brands, the reasoning is simple: mothers do a lot and totes offer the solution. Whether she’s always in the office or always frequently errands, a designer tote is undoubtedly the best way to show you love. From iconic styles by Saint Laurent to trendier options from Alaïa, there are plenty of options to suit her taste. Flowers are always appreciated, but these luxury tote bags are bound to be her favorite gift.

Classic, Black & Spacious


The best luxury tote bags are ones she can carry anywhere and everywhere. Whether it’s a neutral shade or classic black like these, there’s something special about versatile bags. After all, what women wouldn’t want one? The Toy Shopping in Box leather bag has been an all-time classic for years. Known for their luxurious craftsmanship, Saint Laurent is one of the best brands for everyday essentials. Not to mention, this big boy also matches stylish looks like the Reformation Halia button-up dress and Stuart Weitzman pumps. So, mom will always look stylish—all while carrying around what she needs to.


For busier moms or the women who need more space, the Carmela spike stud tote isn’t a piece to skip. Known for practical, yet stylish accessories, Chloé is one brand who always gets it right. From jeans to sundresses, this piece is a great everyday addition. I’d recommend checking out the Waimari Canela lace-trimmed mini dress and Chloé Marcie sandals for a gift mom won’t forget.

Luxury Tote Bags Unlike The Others

Luxury tote bags don’t always have to be fit for errands to shopping trips. In fact, the best styles are those reserved for leisure moments—vacations, beach trips and beyond. Surprisingly enough, these sunny styles also work to upgrade every mother’s wardrobe. A noteworthy favorite of mine is the Falabella woven tote. Stella McCartney’s designs are by far some of the best for a number of environments. Just imagine it styled with the Zimmermann Junie floral maxi dress and Sam Edelman Rowan sandals. I’ll be wrapping a bow around this one.

For those looking for more of a summer-inspired piece, Chloé’s Woody denim-trimmed raffia tote is another favorite. While more on the casual side, this tote works especially well for all types of occasions. From laid-back garden parties to open air market runs, I’m in love with this hidden gem. It also looks stunning when paired with this Farm Rio midi dress and Gianvito Rossi flat sandals. As mentioned before, Chloé’s bag options are not just unique, they’re actually useful. So, if you’re still on the hunt for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, don’t skip luxury tote bags.
