In case you haven’t been checking your calendar regularly, Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday! We would like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there! If this is the first you’ve thought about Mother’s Day, you’re probably scrambling in your mind to think of something to do. You could always send a card or simply call her, but anything sent will probably get there a little late and we want to give our moms something extra special (even if it doesn’t get there late). Take a look at these last minute gifts for your mom this Mother’s Day!
Flowers are a tried and true gift that bring a smile to almost anyone’s face. They are also a great last minute gift, as you can order them online and have them delivered to almost anywhere. If your mom is a big fan of a certain charity, consider buying her flowers through Organic Flowers. This company donates 5% of each sale to a charitable organization, and you have tons to choose from when picking out your flowers (both in charities and flowers).
2. Picture Frame
You can get inexpensive picture frames at a multitude of places. For this last minute gift, there are several things you can do for mom. First, you could buy a more inexpensive frame and decorate it. Get out the stickers, the puff paint, and whatever else you may need to decorate it and add a picture of you and mom. This would be a good gift from the kids. If you can spend a little bit more on a nicer frame maybe opt for a black and white picture of you and mom. Either way you go, mom will love this sentimental gift.
3. Hand-Designed Dishware
At first glance, hand-designed dishware doesn’t sound like a last minute gift, or really an affordable one, but believe me, it is! First, you’ll need to pick up plain white dishes – plates, mugs, whatever dishes you want. These can be as cheap as you can find, so dollar store dishes will work just fine! Then you’ll want to make sure you have oil-based paint pens. As soon as you have these two things, decorate away! Once you’re done decorating, bake your dishes in the oven for 30 minutes at 350°. For best results, place items in the oven before it heats up and take out of the oven after it’s cooled to avoid cracking.
4. Coupon Book
This is another tried and true gift. The good thing about the coupon book as a last minute gift is you can still but effort into the making of it, and the thought of the coupons, even if it was a last minute thought. Think about what your mom would like. Does she like massages? Or getting her nails done? Does she love spending time with you? Give her a coupon for her favorite things, but also sentimental things like a free hug, a free day spent with you spent however she would like it, etc. She will love it.
5. Tickets or a Membership
Most everyone is within driving distance to an area that has a great show, whether it be a play or music or something else. Additionally, many people are very close to places like museums, parks, zoos, etc. that it would be great to have a membership to if it’s a place that you frequent. Take a look at the area and places your mom frequents and see if there’s a show she might want to see or a membership that might be perfect for her and get her that for Mother’s Day. It will be a gift to look forward to!
