Still in the market for a Mother's Day present? If your mom happens to be Danielle Steel, a fan of Danielle Steel, or just a fancy lady who enjoys the finer things, then we've got a few ideas for you. The prolific, best-selling novelist shared her wish list with boutique retailer The Apartment by The Line—she's a frequent visitor as her daughter, Vanessa Traina, is the executive creative director—and it's full of beautiful suggestions for objects you'll want to buy for your mom (and yourself).

Her picks range from a sumptuous alpaca throw ($398) to quirky items like a hollowed-out ostrich egg ($150) to sleek and feminine embroidered flats ($695)—all buys that would be right at home in one of her high society romance novels.

We've featured a few of her picks plus her commentary in the gallery above, but head over to for Steel's full edit of "elegant accessories for a novel life." And if your mom is a true Danielle Steel fan, might we suggest pairing your gift with Steel's latest book (named, of all things, The Apartment).
