LAST MINUTE MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS FOR THE LONG-DISTANCE MOM

Alright, confession time. I am terrible when it comes to sending cards on time, sending gifts on time….sending things on time at all. I have great intentions. I think of the best, most thoughtful gifts – three weeks before they need to be sent – and then never send them.  Or I think of the gift, buy it, and still never send it. One time, I bought my granddaughter a dress from Disney World and found it in the closet a year later….never sent and much to small now.

I attribute this to an artist’s temperment – I’m great with ideas and processes and not so great with follow-through. My beloved mom knows this about me and forgives. “You know I don’t want you to send me anything!” She says every year, but I still feel bad. That’s why I’m so grateful for Amazon Prime. Free two-day shipping has saved me the embarassment of a missed birthday or holiday on more than one occassion. If you’re a consumate idea-gal/procrastinator like me, here are some last minute gifts for Mother’s Day will make mom feel special even though you waited til the very last minute.

PERFUME

Remember the scent mom always wore on date nights with dad when you were small? The scent of it brings back the best childhood memories every time – and you know she hasn’t purchased it in years. For me, it’s Shalimar. Mom wore it for special occassions and I keep a bottle of it hidden in my room for when I’m feeling nostalgic.

A BOOK BY HER FAVORITE AUTHOR

Show her that you’ve been paying attention and know her favorite authors by name. This is particularly special if the author has just come out with a new book and mom is waiting for the paperback!

MOTHER/DAUGHTER JEWELRY

This necklace is so lovely and shares the sentiment “the love between mother and daughter is forever.” I particularly like that it isn’t so obviously a mother/daughter necklace and would be a great compliment to any outfit.

Or this bracelet is a beautiful reminder of your love for a modest price.

THE GIFT OF A LEGACY

This memory journal for moms will be a cherished family heirloom in years to come. There are 12 questions per month that mom will answer about her childhood, ancestry, and other memories. Her own written words will become a legacy for generations to come.

A LITTLE HUMOR

If your mom isn’t one for sentiment, maybe a little humor will make her day.

AND, OF COURSE, FOR THE COFFEE LOVING MOM

The perfect gift for the mom that loves her cuppa joe.

Well, you have a day or two to order to get it there in time….what are you waiting for?!
Show mom you care, even if you almost forgot.
P.S. Dear Mom – I did, in fact, get a card out to you in time and I know you don’t want me to send you anything. However, if I were sending you something, it would be all of these. I LOVE YOU and can’t wait to see you soon.
