The 15 Best Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts
Holidays have a habit of creeping up on the forgetful among us. One moment Mother’s Day is months away, barely something to worry about and then, suddenly, it is breathing down our neck. Thankfully, we live in a world where a great gift can ship in just a day or two after just a few clicks and a little bit of imagination.
To make things all the easier for you anxious and forgetful shoppers, we’ve pulled together a list of last minute Mother’s Day gifts. Whether your mom deserves a new yoga mat or some good bath supplies, we have everything you can want right here. And the best thing about it? They’re all available on Amazon Prime so as long as you order a few days in advance you know it’ll get to mom on time.
San Francisco Salt Co Muscle Soak
Sometimes the best gifts are all about allowing someone to take time for themselves. These bath salts will help mom do just that. Made up of pure Epsom salt and infused with eucalyptus and peppermint oil, they’re billed help soothe muscles and aches. The salts come in two, 10 and 20-pound bags.
Teavana Tea Maker
There is tea, and then there is tea. This brewer from Teavana suspends the tea leaves and hot water above a glass while it brews, and then dispenses the infused liquid once done.
The Old Drift
For some moms, a book is just about as good — if not better — than any other gift. If that sounds familiar, consider gifting The Old Drift by Namwali Serpell. The New York Times called the debut novel from the Zambian writer “dazzling” and “audacious”.
Bee’s Wrap Assorted 3 Pack Food Wraps
If your mom is one to cook big meals and save food for leftovers, consider these bee’s wrap packs. Essentially re-usable plastic wrap, they can be used to preserve food in the fridge, rinsed off with cold water, and put away until next use. Each can last for more than a year.
OXO Good Grips 3-Piece Angled Measuring Cups
Not all measuring cups are created equal. These angled cups, for instance, not only measure up to four cups in a single container but ounces and millimeters as well. The deceptively dynamic kitchen tools are also BPA free.
S’Well Stainless Steel Travel Mug
As odd as it may sound, water bottles are their own kind of accessory. Whether we like to admit it or not the bottles we carry around say something about us. This one from S’well is made from a kitchen grade 18/8 stainless steel and features an attractive marble design and triple walled build that keeps your cold drinks cold and your hot drinks hot.
Creative gifts are overrated. More often than not, something simple like a bouquet of flowers goes a long way towards letting mom know you care for her. This particular bunch of 30 red tulips ships fast — but be sure to make a little bit of extra time because it takes a day or two for the tulips to open all the way up.
The Kombucha Shop Brewing Kit
Want to gift something a little weird for the DIY mom this Mother’s Day? Consider the Kombucha Brewing Kit. Included in the kit are a 1-gallon brew jar, pH test strips, kombucha cultures, and a temperature gauge.
Fire 7 Tablet
Boasting a thinner and lighter-weight body but with longer battery life, there is a whole lot to like about the Fire 7 tablet from Amazon. In addition to offering the same functionality of a traditional e-reader from the Seattle-based tech giant, the Fire 7 is compatible with video streaming from apps like HBO Now, Netflix, and Prime Video.
Manduka Yoga Mat
It’s firm, grippy and durable, but what separates this yoga mat from the fray is that it’s made from a special biodegradable natural tree rubber. So when you gift this mat to your yogi mom, you can rest assured that you’re adding value to her daily workout without adding more waste to the world.
Like most simple things, bathrobes are underrated. And chances are if your mom already has one she’d likely appreciate a newer and plusher one like this example from Ugg. The maker of those comfy shoes everyone seemed to be wearing in the late aughts applied the same magic to their robe. Made from a cotton and spandex shell and featuring a plush fleece lining it offers nothing but comfort.
Fellow Raven Stovetop 1L Tea Kettle
Want to do something a little extra for mom? This stovetop tea kettle from Fellow is ideal. The unique design of the kettle makes it striking from a distance, while an integrated thermometer on top and tea strainer make it ideal for brewing enough tea to share for two.
Fitbit Alta HR
In addition to being the slimmest fitness tracker from Fitbit, the Alta HR also monitors heart rate, meaning that it’s easier to track cardio and calories burned. The diminutive size and color range also make it an ideal gift to give to the active mom who is trying to tracker her workouts more closely.
These slippers are as comfortable as their name is unabashedly fun to say. Essentially woolen versions of Crocs, these mules feature a rubber sole for wearing both inside and outside the house.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
One of the more sought-after haircare products released in the past few years, this dryer from Dyson is designed to prevent heat damage. In addition to its unique design with 4 heat settings, the Supersonic Hair Dryer features a bevy of magnetic attachments for stylizing to your preference.
