If you haven’t purchased a gift for your mom yet, don’t fret! The following seven last-minute gifts provide the thoughtfulness Mom loves with the efficiency you need.
Couple any of these ideas with a personal, heartfelt card to ensure Mom feels extra loved and appreciated come Sunday, May 8th.
Song-Filled Music Player
Give the gift of music by buying Mom an iPod or MP3 player and loading it up with songs she’ll love. Select her all-time favorites and some new selections to expose her to the latest chart-toppers. Either way, she’s bound to love her new, personalized gizmo!
While it’s not the most sentimental way to show your appreciation, everyone enjoys the opportunity to shop for something they really want! Many stores, such as Amazon, allow you to send a gift card via email or Facebook.
There couldn’t be an easier or more instantaneous gift! Plus, an e-gift card is a great option if you find yourself separated by distance from your mom this year. Amazon even has Mother’s Day-themed gift card designs and offers the ability to customize the purchase with a sweet note.
A digital photo frame propels Mom into 21st-century sentimentality! All you need to do is buy the digital frame, save pictures from years past onto it (by following the easy directions), wrap and present it with pride. You can make sure it arrives on time by selecting reliable one-day shipping (if available) or take advantage of stores such as Best Buy’s in-store pickup option. You’ll breeze through checkout and be on your way to creating a speedy yet heartfelt gift.
If you want to give your mom something that will honor her fashionable ways, turn to Endless.com, a shoe and accessories purveyor committed to exceptional customer service. Endless offers free overnight shipping on all new styles and the handy clock icon next to the item you’re considering shows you exactly what time you need to make your purchase in order to see your package the next day. Choose from trendy iPad cases, the latest spring shoes, and heartfelt jewelry. And no need to fret over not picking the right gift as Endlesss always offers free return shipping.
A magazine subscription is the ultimate last-minute gift, but it still shows you know a little something about Mom’s interests and hobbies. Plus, it’s something she’s bound to enjoy. Simply pick up the current issue of her favorite magazine at any bookstore or grocery store and mail in the subscription. (While you’re at it, don’t forget a sweet card!) Even if you do this on your way to meet her at Mother’s Day brunch, she’ll never be the wiser.
Like a magazine subscription, a food-of-the-month club membership is the sort of item that arrives at a later date, cleverly covering your tracks as a last-minute shopper, but still providing Mom with something she’ll savor. Present her membership by writing out the details in a greeting card or printing out menus or a schedule so she can see the savory (or sweet) items she’ll receive—perfect for cooks or foodie moms!
You can’t go wrong with this classic gift. However, Mom might get wise to your procrastinating ways if you simply hand her a grocery-store bouquet. Sweeten up the bouquet by purchasing truffles (also available at any grocery store), sticking them on skewers, and interspersing them throughout the bouquet. Flowers and chocolate—what mom wouldn’t want that?!
