Ahhh, another May, another day. Wait, it’s May? Isn’t Mother’s Day in May? It is, and it’s on Sunday, shoot! If this is you, then you are likely scrambling right now to figure out what to get your beloved mother, grandmother or mother figure in your life. Not to fret, we’ve got you covered with some awesome last minute Mother’s Day gifts that she’ll think you spent months putting together.
At Home Spa
If you’re an avid reader of our blog, then you already know how we love DIY beauty. Honestly, you can re-create any spa like treatment at home with the simplest of ingredients. Treat your mom to a morning of at home pampering using some of our great DIY face treatments like one of our Anti-Aging Facial Scrubs, or perhaps a luxurious home manicure. Turn on some tranquil spa like music on your Pandora, some fashion or gossip mags, light some scented candles and voila! Spa Mom is open for business.
Follow it up with a delicious homemade brunch or lunch, and don’t forget to include some green tea (it’s great for the skin). We also know a great recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Bread that would go fantastically with tea. If time is of the essence, a great idea would be to pack up some of these ingredients/items into a basket or a gift bag for mom and print out some of the recipes so she can do on her own later.
Order a Gift Basket
If money is not an issue in choosing last minute Mother’s Day gifts and you’re looking for a swift gift that is unique, we love cookie bouquets! Who doesn’t enjoy a delicious sweet treat? These super adorable, carefully crafted bouquets from Cookies By Design can be picked up at a nearby location or delivered. Or bake her some cookies and make your own cookie gift basket.
Spend Quality Time
For the active mom, try a gift certificate to a local yoga or cycling studio that your two can take classes at together for some sweaty bonding time. Pair it with a Zing Anything Water Bottle where you can infuse water with the lemon, lime and other delicious fruit. For a more homemade approach create a gift bag/basket with a few bottles of water, trail mix, sunscreen and a print out map of a hiking trail with a killer view or beautiful scenery where the two of you can spend some quality time enjoying each others company.
Whether you’re looking for last minute Mother’s Day gifts or you got something months ago, mom will be sure to love anything you give her. She likely still has the macaroni yarn necklace you meticulously made for her in kindergarten stashed somewhere in your childhood belongings. The main factor in your gift: love. If you love the lady enough to even think about doing something nice or buying her something on this day, then your gift is a sure fire win no matter what.
