Last-minute Mother’s Day Gifts

Breakfast in bed with tea, croissant and I love mom card

Did Mother’s Day sneak up on you this year? Not to worry! There’s no need for Mom to ever know that her special day—or gift—slipped your mind.

Although it may be too late to shop for Mother’ Day gifts in a store or online, we’ve rounded up six last-minute gift ideas worthy of the woman who taught you how to tie your shoes, mind your manners and navigate life.

Breakfast in bed.

When was the last time Mom enjoyed breakfast in bed? Surprise her this Mother’s Day with fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, Crème brûlée French toast and all her morning favorites. Can’t be there to make the meal? Order it via Grubhub!

Cooking class.

Does Mom enjoy experimenting in the kitchen? If so, sign her up for a class at a local cooking school. Not only will she appreciate the opportunity to sharpen her skills, she’ll think of you every time she showcases her culinary creations.

Tea for two.

Book a table at a local tea room and catch up with Mom over a steaming hot cuppa accompanied by sweet and savory scones and flavorful finger sandwiches. If you aren’t in town to bond over Mother’s Day Darjeeling, arrange for Mom to enjoy tea time with a friend.

Dinner and a movie.

You can never go wrong with a good meal and an even better rom-com (or action-adventure flick!). To help ensure a memorable Mother’s Day, reserve a table at Mom’s favorite restaurant and purchase a pair of advance movie tickets on Fandango.

Spa day.

Every mom can benefit from a little me-time. Treat yours to a soothing massage, facial, manicure, pedicure and/or other spa service this Mother’s Day! Simply email Mom a convenient gift card and let her choose the location and treatment(s)!

Cleaning service.

Could Mom use a break from cleaning her home? Invite her to sit back and relax while someone else tackles her lengthy list of household chores. This just might be her favorite Mother’s Day gift yet!
