Your Last Minute Guide to Mother’s Day


Ahh! Somehow Mother’s Day always seems to sneak up on us, but fret not! If you’re still frantically searching for the perfect gift to give your mama this holiday, well, you can stop. We’ve searched high and low for the best gift options out there that are sure to put a smile on your mother’s face. Below are our top ten gifts for the last minute shopper. (Don’t forget, you can always print a picture of your gift to wrap until the real one arrives!)


Every lady gets excited when she opens a gift and finds jewelry inside, but Mom will be even more psyched to find something stunning from Honey Rose & K in her Mother’s Day stash. The company, created by Meredith Piccin, incorporates vintage finds into every piece, while updating each design to a unique and modern accessory. We love this Copper Shades Coin Bracelet ($40), which features a copper coin repurposed from a vintage belt on a silver chain. If you want something more personalized, you can send the company your own vintage pieces and they will work with you to create a special and thoughtful gift just for you.


If mom needs some pampering — and let’s be honest, all moms do — then make sure to shop at Onward Reserve. The sophisticated online retail shop has the perfect destresser for mama in the form of Sydney Hale’s Cedarwood & Vanilla Candle ($28). The candle, which is made from soy wax and includes dual vegetable wax coated cotton wicks, not only smells great, but once used up, can be used as a chic decoration, vase, or container.


For the mama with an incurable sweet tooth, we’ve got the best gift you can give this Mother’s Day. Sugarwish ($25-$70) is a clever company that allows you to send an eCard to mom, allowing them to choose their favorite candies, which will then be shipped directly to them in a beautiful box and with a bow. You know you are giving a thoughtful gift when you let the recipient choose what they really want! Additionally, there are different sizes to choose from, along with a very diverse selection of candies. It’s sure to be the sweetest gift she’ll ever receive.


In keeping with the theme of pampering, Sweet Salvage Skincare is a fabulous company that produces all natural prodcuts using plant-based, GMO-free glycerin, essential oils and natural oils. Their Shampoo & Conditioner ($16) is a great gift for mom and will leave her hair healthy, natural and smelling of heavenly lemon and lavender. These products contain no dyes, perfumes or artificial ingredients, making them a real find.


Give mom the gift of style with one of Big Buddha‘s vegan handbags. The company, which is licensed under Steve Madden Ltd., has beautiful and vibrant bags that appeal to all different women. We are obsessed with the Providence Satchel ($95), which will not only hold everything knick knack mom has to carry around, but is also gorgeous and sophisticated.


If your mom spends more time in the kitchen than most, she is going to love Mangé‘s fresh fruit vinegars. Sweep your old vinegar to the side and step it up with wonderful and robust flavors such as blackberry, passion fruit, pear, red pepper and more. This modern twist on a classic will spice up any dish or cocktail. Every vinegar is all natural, gluten free, kosher and made without any preservatives or synthetic dyes. Furthermore, they are all made using the freshest fruit available. They can be purchased individually ($11), or in special gift boxes ($25.95-$31.50).


For the mom who has everything, a sentimental gift is the way to go. Enter Nelle & Lizzy, a company that specializes in customized jewelry at an affordable price. The line was created by moms for moms, making it an i-‘duh’-eal present. Their birthstone name rings ($59-$169) allow you to customize unique rings for mom, each with the name and birthstone of her child(ren) (you!). Not only are they one of a kind, but they give mama dearest a reminder of her favorite gift of all…you.


Sometimes it can be a difficult decision whether you want to relax with a glass of wine or need something stiffer, like vodka, to calm your nerves. Give mom a little bit of both with LeSutra Sparkling Liqueur ($29.99), an infusion of premium vodka and white wine, that comes in four tasty flavors. The mouthwatering beverage can be enjoyed on its own or in a cocktail, tickling your taste buds with its light bubbles. Whether you opt for blueberry, strawberry, peach or grape, mom will sure be happy…even the bottle is festive!


Yes, flowers are a very typical Mother’s Day gift, but it’s such a big seller for a good reason. Step it up a notch this year with a something from Vera Wang’s floral collection, available through FTD. These stunningly beautiful arrangements can be delivered anywhere in the world, and from someone who knows a thing or two about design, you know mom will love them. The floral arrangements vary in price, starting at $59.99, with options to include other Vera Wang products, such as perfume and picture frames.


Since mom is always so busy, it’s important that her downtime be as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Luxor Linens has a delightfully soft Eygptian cottom bathrobe ($118-143) that will make lounging around the house absolutely blissful. You can even score a monogrammed bathrobe for just $25 extra, making mom feel special this holiday.
