This one goes out to all of you procrastinators. Don’t worry, it’s not too late to order Mom a last-minute Mother’s Day gift she’ll love, but there’s no time left to wait! Believe me, I know what it’s like when you wait until the last minute, ruin your chance at getting a gift shipped in time, and end up sorting through picked-over gifts in-store or worse: you’re left with no other choice than to re-gift something you already have on hand.
To make your last-minute shopping as easy as possible (and to make sure all the mamas out there don’t have to sleep at night knowing they raised a procrastinator) I’ve organized gifts into 3 categories: Thoughtful, Subscriptions & Quick Shipping.
THOUGHTFUL MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS
A while back I asked my followers to share what they were gifting their moms for Mother’s Day, or what they hope to be gifted by their kiddos. Like the wonderful mothers they are, a lot of them suggested creating opportunities to spend quality time together. Here are some of the responses they gave:
- Spa Day: treat mom to mani-pedis or a massage, and be sure to bring supplies for mimosas! You could even throw in a new robe or some skincare goodies to treat her.
- Cleaning spree: I love this idea for moms with teens or pre-teens who feel like they never get a break. Send your mom off on a date with her hubby (or for some me time..either sounds divine) and while she’s gone DEEP. CLEAN. EVERYTHING. Take her car for a wash and detail, deep clean the house, do the laundry, etc. You could even choose to bring in the pros for this!
- Cooking class: sign yourself + the mom in your life up for a cooking class, or even a sip & paint ordeal. Treat her to a nice bottle of her favorite wine, or if you’re looking to splurge, a fancy mixer (on sale!) or Le Creuset dishware.
- Weekend at the beach: if you live within driving distance of the beach, plan a weekend getaway with Mom. Buy her a new beach chair, a few magazines, and a great beach read and you’re all set!
One thing that I love to gift at any time of the year is a subscription! You can’t go wrong with a few Home Chef meals (new customers can get 50% off your first 4 boxes – that’s 18 FREE meals with code CRISTIN50OFF), beautiful flowers from Grace Rose Farms or a summer subscription from McCleod Peaches (use code CRISTIN20 for 20% off peach delivery until 6/30/23)! Dry Farms Wine is another great subscription service and Southern Living is always a crowd favorite. If mom is a beauty lover, I love the Dermstore BeautyFix boxes!!
QUICK SHIPPING FROM THE SHOPPE
