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.
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!
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.
THE GIFT OF A LEGACY
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.
