All grown up, twentysomething daughters turn the tables and treat their mothers for the holidays, with jewelry, activewear and accessories.

1. Name: Kelley Giffin
Home: New York City
Mother's home: Atlanta
Gift: Pearl cocktail ring and matching earrings.
Store: Macy's
Price: $800
Inspiration: "While [I was] out shopping one day with my mom, she expressed interest in a pearl ring — a strange thing to be extremely excited about, I must admit, but I was extremely excited that she had expressed interest in something! Plus, she has recently given me a beautiful cocktail ring to celebrate my growing up — yes, I believe I am actually a 24-year-old person in the world— and I wanted to return the favor."

2. Name: Jessica Hilberman
Home: Oakland, Calif.
Mother's home: Los Angeles
Gift: A pair of art glass and sterling earrings by Los Angeles artist Arlene Risi Steich.
Store: Montclair Art and Wine Festival in Oakland.
Price: $45
Inspiration: "I picked earrings because my mom's hair is growing back from her chemo, so it's very short and cute, but she needs some fun ear jewelry to help frame her face. Actually, she never had pierced ears, but she got them pierced over Thanksgiving so that she'd be able to wear earrings without losing them (and because I think she wants diamonds), so this will be her first pair of pierced earrings."

3. Name: Ashley Allison
Home: Dallas
Mother's home: Liberty, Tex.
Gift: Black Gucci bag.
Store: An outlet in Florence.
Price: $600
Inspiration: "I know she'll love it, and I guess it's a bit authentic since it came straight from Italy via my very large suitcase. The best part about it is that (a) I haven't even slipped a word about it in five months, and (b) I didn't use it even once."
