18 Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gifts for Every Kind of Mom
We can’t even tell you what day of the week it is, never mind what month it is. So, it’s a huge feat that we haven’t missed Mother’s Day completely. Lucky for us (and all the rockstar moms in our lives), we figured things out just in the nick of time. Ahem, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 10. Here are 18 thoughtful gifts that can be shipped directly to her doorstep or sent via email to ensure a last-minute, yet definitely on-time delivery.
1. For the Mom Who Can’t Stop Watching ‘Fixer Upper’ Reruns: Havenly Interior Design Consultation
She’s spending so much time at home these days that she can’t stop thinking of home improvement projects (same!). Gift her a one-on-one consultation with an interior designer, from the comfort of her own home, so she can turn her Fixer Upper obsession into reality. Choose from either a Havenly Mini ($79), which will let her refresh any room or the Havenly Full ($129), which will allow her to completely redesign an entire room.
2. For the Mom Who Appreciates Flowers: The Bouqs Co. Flower Delivery
There’s just no denying the beauty of a classic Mother’s Day standby. The Bouqs Co. offers gorgeous blooms (like this flower assortment with plantable succulents) for one-time delivery as well as a monthly flower subscription, since, TBH, every day is Mother’s Day in her world.
3. For the Mom Who Loves to Learn: Masterclass All-Access Subscription
With virtual classes that include cooking with Gordon Ramsey, photo sessions by Annie Leibovitz and even tennis lessons with world champion, Serena Williams, there’s truly a Master Class for every mom out there. And since we’re stuck at home, there’s no better time to learn a new skill. Each class includes on-demand videos that can be viewed at her own pace, plus a class workbook with optional assignments and an online student community. Choose to send an electronic gift card immediately via email, or on a specific date (reminder: it’s May 10).
4. For the Mom Who Likes Surprises: FabFitFun Subscription
Four times per year, a FabFitFun box will get sent directly to her doorstep, with wellness, beauty and lifestyle products centered around a seasonal theme. Each shipment contains over $200 worth of products she’ll actually use (think packing cubes, face masks, slippers and more) for just $45.
5. For the Mom Who Never Tires of Rosé: Summer Water Societé Subscription
Winc’s annual summer rosé subscription is back for another season, which means you should give mom the gift of all the rosé she can drink from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Every month, she’ll get a shipment of the brand’s signature Summer Water range (from rosé to bubbles to a chillable red). Here’s to hoping you can enjoy a glass or two with her this summer, even if it’s via FaceTime.
6. For the Mom with 75 Coffee Mugs: Blue Bottle Coffee Subscription
Choose the type of coffee, the delivery schedule and the number of shipments. Because while she definitely misses you, she really misses her morning coffee run.
7. For the Mom Who Shares Your Netflix Account: Disney+ Gift Subscription
Give her a year of Disney+ and she’ll have endless TV for the grandkids to watch when she babysits. And yes, it’s totally fine to ask her to share the login, so the whole family can watch movies “together” from afar.
8. For the Mom Who Needs Some R&R: OUAI Chill Pills Bath Fizzies
Stressful times call for stress-relieving measures and that’s exactly what these moisturizing bath fizzies deliver. Infused with jojoba, safflower and hemp seed oils, plus a light scent of jasmine and rose, they’ll leave her skin feeling soft and send her anxiety packing.
9. For the Mom Who Never Says No to Dessert: Mike's Famous Cannoli Kit
This famous Boston-based pastry shop typically has a line down the block and for good reason: its cannoli are to die for. Deliver everything mom needs to assemble her own treats (just be sure to select expedited shipping at checkout). The kit includes enough supplies to make ten of Mike’s Pastry’s cannoli. And you can choose from plain or chocolate ricotta filling and then let her customize with toppings including confectioners’ sugar, pistachios and chocolate chips.
10. For the Mom Who Takes Facials Seriously: Pulse+GLO by Georgia Louise Hollywood EGF Micro-Needling + Ion Infusion Kit
Back in the good old days, she had a standing facial appointment once a month. But after she uses this two-step microneedling device, she might never go back to her monthly habit. The at-home treatment addresses every major skincare concern: fine lines, enlarged pores, pigmentation, dryness, dullness and uneven skin tone, by creating tiny channels in the skin that boost collagen production and allow the serum to penetrate deeper.
11. For the Mom Who Should Be on Vacation: Loeffler Randall Cruise Tote
She had to cancel her big trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands, but she’s most definitely rebooking when it’s safe to do so. And she’s going to need a new beach bag when that day comes. This chic straw tote will fit all the essentials—she might even start using it to carry her laptop from room to room.
12. For the Mom Who’s Been Using Cans of Beans to Work Out: P.volve Transform Kit
Desperate times, right? While two cans of beans (or two bottles of wine) are more than acceptable forms of workout equipment these days, this popular fitness brand has real exercise equipment that can be at her doorstep in two days. From resistance bands to a thigh-shaping ball, she’s sure to use this kit long after quarantine is over. Bonus: P.volve is currently offering a free 30-day membership of its streaming service for new users.
13. For the Mom In a Constant Thermostat Battle with Your Dad: UGG Dakota Slippers
The thermostat struggle has never been more real with the two of them home 24/7. But with these cozy slippers at the ready, she’ll be comfortable no matter who wins.
14. For the Mom Who’s Never Not Burning a Candle: DIPTYQUE Figuier and Cypress Set
Going on month two at home, there’s no doubt she’s burned through a candle or two. This set comes with two popular fragrances, so she’ll be stocked up for the next few weeks (at least).
15. For the Mom Who Even Wears Lipstick During Quarantine: Gucci Lipstick Holder
If your mom has too many lipsticks to count, it’s time to get her a wearable lipstick holder. It’s the type of gift she’d never buy herself but will find extremely useful—especially with her current packed schedule of Zoom meetings.
16. For the Mom Who Wants New Clothes, But Doesn’t Know Where to Start: Stitch Fix Gift Card
By now, everyone is sick of wearing the same three outfits on repeat, but what else is there to wear? Turns out, Stitch Fix can help. An instant digital gift card will get her access to a personal stylist who can help her discover her best wardrobe ever, from the comfort of her own home.
17. For the Mom Who Loves Posting on Instagram: Chatbooks Monthly Photo Book Subscription
Photobooks are lovely but making them can be tedious. That’s why Chatbooks created a subscription that sends a personalized mini photo book each month, based on the pics in her camera roll. All she has to do is take two quick minutes to open the app and select which photos she wants to feature. She’ll enjoy having actual copies of all her best photos to show guests the second quarantine lifts.
18. For the Mom Who Always Has a Fresh Manicure: Sundays Nail Studio At-Home Mani Class
So, you can’t go out for your annual mother-daughter manicure this Mother’s Day, but you can take a virtual class with beloved non-toxic NYC studio, Sundays. For just $15, she’ll get access to a mani class, gel removal class or nail art class via a private, one-on-one Zoom call. Ah, the power of technology.
