May 11 2014 - 10:08am

We know your mom is a star in your heart, so why not use her celebrity mother doppelgänger to find her the perfect Mother's Day [1] gift? Whether your mama likes to spend Saturdays volunteering or out partying with girlfriends, we've found her A-list match. The beauty presents we picked play to her personality, so it's a foolproof system. Luckily, all these finds are also gorgeous, meaning you don't even have to bother with wrapping paper.

Eco Mom

If your mom is always droning on about preservatives and parabens, then you know she's a fan of environment-conscious beauty. Natalie Portman [2] is her perfect celebrity match, as the actress is a well-known vegan who embraces the earth-friendly fashion, jewelry, and beauty movement. Find a gift that would fit in Natalie's strict nature-loving beauty routine, and your mom is sure to be satisfied as well.
