As I approach 30 (two week countdown, baby!), I’ve started getting very serious about what’s in my closet. Whereas I used to spend on just about every trend, I’m proud to say I’m learning to be more discerning. Why? Because I have a 5-year-old daughter and I want to leave her some seriously awesome things, not just a bunch of random stuff from H&M and Forever 21. I mean, what’s the point of having a daughter if you’ve got nothing to give her (not counting the gift of life, obvi)? With the exception of two amazing Coach legacy bags, my mom hasn’t really passed down anything I love and I never let her hear the end of it.

So for all you mamas out there, consider this your master checklist. Click through the slideshow to find out the 15 items you should aspire to own before you’re old and grey so you can pass them down to your daughter and earn her undying love. You’re welcome.

Be sure to check out 30 things you should own if you’re over 30, celebrity handbags and the best-dressed celebrity kids.
