We know a few things mom might want for Mother’s Day… a relaxing morning, a day of pampering and time spent with the ones she loves the most! While these may not be items you can pick up at the store, Target does have all you need to create a day filled with pampering and love. Just ask husband-and-wife duo Jorge Bernal and Karla Birbragher, who filled us in on what’s on their Mother’s Day (and Father’s Day) gifting wish lists.

As a television host and celebrity stylist, the busy pair also are parents to two young kids, Lucas and Kylie, and know it can be tough to find time to pamper a spouse or parent. That’s why they’ve pulled together their favorite gifting items and springy outfits to set the stage for a stylish holiday.

What’s on your Mother’s Day wish list?
The tassel slide sandals, the bow espadrille sandals, and the tassel pointed mules. Do you see a trend going? I love shoes! These comfortable and trendy slip-ons go with everything and the colorful details make them an added statement piece to any outfit.

What’s on your Father’s Day wish list?
 I enjoy receiving clothes for Father’s Day. To me, there’s something special about getting apparel because I feel like that the person who gifted me the clothing went that extra mile to get me something I truly would enjoy. My go-to outfit this summer would definitely be a camp shirt and chino shorts. It’s perfect for dads on-the-go because it offers a comfortable and versatile option that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

What will you be getting for Karla this Mother’s Day?
Weeeeellll... since Karla is a stylist it’s always a challenge to find something that puts a glint in her eye, so my trick is to get her accessories to complement her outfits. I’m thinking a cool fanny pack and some espadrilles for our beach days with the kiddos.

What will you be gifting Jorge this Father’s Day?
 My husband is very much into taking care of himself, so this year I definitely will get him grooming and skincare products. I’m excited for him to try the Aloe & Tea Tree Beard & Face Scrub from Pacino’s Shave System since it cleanses and exfoliates while moisturizing at the same time. Dads deserve some pampering too! Moisturizer is the key to a youthful complexion so I’ll be sure to get him a few extra moisturizing products like these options from Rebels Refinery. Every time we go to Target, I always catch Jorge eyeing the wallets, so I would definitely want to gift him one from Goodfellow & Co. They’re beautiful high-quality leather items, and I know those are details he would appreciate.

What are your go-to, fool-proof Mother’s Day gifts?
Flowers, shoes and handbags! This cute yellow crossbody bag with the feminine bow detail would be a great gift for any mom. I love that these bags are so versatile. They can be worn multiple ways—wristlet, cross body, top handle—offering tons of options to keep your look fresh. Get it for less than $20 and pair it with espadrilles and you’ll have mom ready to go for Mother’s Day brunch!

What about fool-proof Father’s Day presents?
A great grooming kit is always, always a great gift idea. Harry’s men’s grooming brand is one of my favorites and it offers everything you’d need for a good shave from post shave balm to face wash and of course a great razor. I love their products because they’re so economical without sacrificing quality! Package up an assortment of dad's favorite grooming products in this sleek toiletry bag for a kit that’ll keep him looking fresh and clean all year round.

To make mom feel especially stylish and chic on her big day, Karla pulled together three Mother’s Day style trends and her favorite accompanying looks from Target. And don’t worry dads, Jorge did the same just for you! Check them all out, below:
