Did Mother’s Day creep up on you? Never fear…. here are a slew of last minute gift ideas, with surely something to please everyone on your list.

Does she love fashion but has no time to shop? I bet she will LOVE a Stitch Fix Gift Card — Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service for women, and this is my referral link.

Does she love jewelry? What woman doesn’t!?? Peruse my Stella & Dot shop for gift ideas. There are also a ton of cute bags and scarves to choose from. Be sure you’re following my Stella & Dot Facebook Page to keep up on the latest promotions and special offers!


It’s too late to order in time for Mother’s Day, but you can certainly give her a gift certificate to be redeemed at a later date. Fill out this form for more info or email me through my Contact link at the top of my blog.


Is she a blogger? Give her the gift of WordPress support. Trust me. She will LOVE it. WordPress Barista offers gift cards for her services, starting at $35.

Never underestimate the joy of fresh flowers (affiliate link). If cut flowers seem wasteful and fleeting, consider an azalea plant that she can put in the ground and watch it grow.

Help the kids make a coupon booklet with a variety of chores and pampering activities they can provide for mom over the next few months. Image source:


A thoughtful card goes a long way. Check out your local Hallmark (CVS also carries Hallmark cards) for their new signature collection. (Disclosure, I am working on a 6-month campaign with Hallmark, but they are not sponsoring of this post; I am truly a fan of their cards!!)


Does she deserve some pampering this Mother’s Day?? (What mother doesn’t!?) Consider a gift card to a local spa for a massage or pedicure.

How about some time to herself? Offer to take the kids to the park for a few hours and leave her at home with strict instructions to read or watch her favorite TV show.

Gift her with her a favorite edible treat — a box of chocolates, a bottle of wine, a cupcake from her favorite bakery or a steak dinner on the grill!

When in doubt? Just ask! Ask her what SHE wants to do and how SHE wants to spend her special day. Make this one day all about HER! She will love you for it!

Happy Mother’s day to you and yours!!!!
