We never intentionally forget that Mother’s Day is the second Sunday in May. (We’re sure Freud would have had something to say about that.) But why dwell?

Here, six last-minute gift ideas.


Champagne Brunch

Reservations are still open to treat Mom to a fun, bubbly-filled brunch at Grain in the Park Cities. Think Texas-sized brunch items (pulled-pork eggs Benedict, redneck cheddar grits and omelets) and fresh seafood fare like fluke Oscar, crab claws and gulf shrimp. ($30 to $60 per person)

Grain, 5954 Luther Lane; 214-368-0400 or grainrestaurantandbar.com


Delicate Macarons

Any mom will love these sweet and delicate treats from Bisous Bisous Pâtisserie in Uptown. Create a custom dozen box ($25) with exotic flavors (Tahitian vanilla, lemon-raspberry, tiramisu) or go full-on comfort with the peanut-butter-and-jelly variety.

Bisous Bisous Pâtisserie, 3700 McKinney Ave., #150; 214-613-3570 or bisous-bisous.com


Anti-Aging Facial

Worried about her worry lines? Treat Mom to an effective Radio Frequency anti-aging facial from Hanna Isul in University Park ($400). The tranquil experience will have her feeling relaxed and rejuvenated… and looking more youthful well after the one-hour treatment.

Hanna Isul, 8403 Pickwick Lane; 214-361-6500 or hannaisul.com


Designer Fitbit Cover

She loves her Fitbit… but she hates the way it looks. Tory Burch--in Highland Park Village or NorthPark Center--has her covered with this smart and attractive Fitbit cover. ($195)

Tory Burch, 17 Highland Park Village; 214-559-2400 or toryburch.com


A Housekeeper

Give her the gift of a spotless home. A Homejoy gift card gets her a day of cleaning from a reference-verified and heavily screened housecleaner.

Personalized Necklace

Reality check: There’s no way to get a fully personalized item this late in the game. So opt for a partially personalized bauble. Gemma Collection in Snider Plaza has a grand collection of personalized jewelry that can be picked up (wrapped) as late as 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Gemma Collection, 6715 Snider Plaza; 469-232-9357 or gemmacollection.com
