Posted on Thursday, May 8th, 2014 at 7:00 am
You only have a couple of days before Mother’s Day. It is probably too late for you to order something online and have it shipped to your mother. What are you going to do for a gift now? Have no fear procrastinators (or people who are extremely busy)! Here are some last minute Mother’s Day gifts that you can still pick up for your mom.
Get a Gift Card
You can’t go wrong with a gift card. Pick one out. Tell the cashier how much money you want to put on it. In just a few minutes, you have an easy Mother’s Day gift. Choose a gift card from her favorite store, restaurant, or salon. Many places will have gift cards that have special Mother’s Day designs on them. Ask the cashier for one of those fancy, small, envelopes that gift cards fit into. Another option is to put the gift card inside a Mother’s Day card.
Gift Bag of Candy
Remember those “goodie bags” that you would take home from birthday parties when you were a child? They typically contain candy. Put a smile on your mother’s face by creating her very own, customized, gift bag of candy. Stop by the section of the grocery store or pharmacy that has cards. There should be some small gift bags somewhere nearby. Fill the bag with mom’s favorite type of candy bars. It will be like a bouquet of chocolate instead of flowers.
Fill a Coffee Mug
You can find your mother a cute coffee mug just about anywhere. Department stores will have them in the kitchen section. Grocery stores might have some in the holiday section. Go get one. Next, you are going to fill that mug with her favorite coffee, tea, or a little of both.
If your mom prefers tea, buy her a box of her favorite kind. Open the box and carefully place each individually sealed tea bag into the mug. Does your mom like coffee? Starbucks makes an instant coffee called VIA that comes in individual servings. If your mom has a Keurig, you can buy her some K-cups of either coffee or tea. Fill the coffee mug. It makes a cute gift.
Assortment of Samples
Is your mom someone who loves little bars of soap and other scented products? Stop by the grocery store or pharmacy and see what kinds of scented lotions or shampoos they have in “travel” sizes. Check out the soap aisle to see if there are any cute little soaps there. Another option is to stop by Bath and Body Works and pick up a bunch of scented lotions, soaps, sprays, and more.
