"The working mother" wears many hats — boss, #1 fan, stylist, chef, and professional bedtime storyteller — to name a few. And though we should take pause to thank them everyday, it's unlikely we'd be able to catch them between their meetings and fittings and sports games and bath time. So Mother's Day will have to do.

True, spending time with a bundle of joy shouldn't be as tedious as, say, planning and executing a fashion show from scratch, but we have it on good word that parenting isn't the easiest task either. With everyone from top NYC designers (hello Rachel Comey!) to an Hermès PR executive, our slideshow of aw-inducing pics (and the gifts they want to get) will have you misty-eyed. You'll be heading to the flower aisle stat — just please, no carnations.
