Last-Minute Gift Ideas
If you haven’t gotten your mother a gift, it doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. It could means you’re busy and time got away from you. If that’s the case, don’t fret. Here are a few easy, last-minute gift ideas packed full of heart.
Forget flowers and go for a plant instead. Cut flowers die, but a plant can add life to a room or flowerbed long after Mother’s Day has passed.
Most craft stores have kits that come with everything you need to make a garden stone, except the concrete. You get can a bag of concrete at any home-improvement store.
Homemade garden stones don’t take long to decorate and only need a night to set and dry. They can be personalized and color-coordinated. Plus, they also look like you spent hours making a gift.
When all else fails, bake a cake or some cookies. You can then personalize it with icing or other candies just for mom. Just remember not to go crazy with the treats.
If your mom likes to be pampered, taking her for a spa day can be a great way to tell her thank you for all she’s done. If a massage is too much for her, then opt for a mani/pedi day instead.
Donate to something
Donating to a good cause in your mom’s name is also a thoughtful, last-minute gift idea. Make sure though that it’s a cause she cares about and not just some random donation because you didn't know what else to buy.
Celebrating your mother doesn’t have to take up a lot of time and money. The best gifts come from the heart. If you put a little thought into what she would like, then shopping for mom on Mother’s Day can be simple and easy.
