6. Tea or Coffee – Is your mother a tea or coffee drinker? Get her some gourmet flavours and a brand new mug. Lot’s of stores sells mugs especially for amazing Moms! PS: This idea also works for wine & a wine glass!

7. A Mother’s Day Card – Mothers just want to know that they are being thought of and appreciated. Head to the store and read through the cards until you find one that resonates for you and your Mom. Even a gesture as simple as a greeting card will warm her heart!

8. Essential Oil Diffuser – Essential Oils are the new way to get your house smelling fresh and amazing. Get your Mom a diffuser and pick up a few oils that you think she would love! Alternatively, candles are awesome too!

9. A Lunch Date – Treat your Mom to a lunch or dinner date in the near future. It doesn’t have to be this weekend.  Give her a call and let her know you would love to take her out very soon as a Mother’s Day treat.

10. New Clothes – If you know her style, pick her out a new sweater or cozy pyjamas and slippers. If not, a gift card so she can treat herself to a shopping spree will work just as well! Maybe you could even take her to her favourite store as a surprise.

Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There’s no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving.

11. A Bird Feeder – Together with some bird seed, this gift will bring your Mom so much joy for years to come. She will think of you every time she sees the birds happily resting.

12. Home Decor – Whether it’s new cushions, kitchen towels or artwork for the walls, anything goes for this idea! If you aren’t sure, you could always bring her to choose something she likes.

13. Purse, Tote Bags, Travel Toiletry Case, Carry-On Luggage – Find out what she needs in terms of bags and surprise her with something new and improved.

14. Concert/Movie Tickets – Find a show she would love to see and treat her to a night out of entertainment.

15. A Monthly Subscription Box- Nowadays, there is a subscription company for pretty much anything. Whether it be healthy snacks, beauty products or book/magazines, choose something your mom would enjoy as a monthly reminder of your love for her.

I got it from my Mama.

Hopefully these last minute Mother’s Day Gift ideas were helpful for you. In the end, quality time and your gratitude for everything she has done for you is the best gift you could give. As long as you let your Mom know you love her, she will be so appreciative.

Let’s not forget about the other Mothers we have in our lives. Our grandmothers, and even friends we have that have become new mothers. There may even be people who have acted like a mother to you that might deserve a phone call from you on Mother’s Day!

If you are a mother, I wish you a Happy Mother’s Day. You are amazing!
