While you are all hovered over at your cubicles in the library, take a moment to think about how simply great your mother is and how much she does for you. Keeping that in mind, Mother’s Day is fast approaching and if you’re stuck on what to get the #1 woman in your life, check out these 10 memorable Mother’s Day Gifts.



First of all, what woman does not enjoy receiving a bouquet of beautiful flowers? Your mother will especially enjoy this gift and it is a no-fail present.


“Pamper Yourself” basket

Mom basically busts her butt all year so you can get what you want/need. Why not treat her to a day of pampering and relaxation with a gift basket filled with spa goodies. Some things you could put in the basket include hand cream, fuzzy socks, or a candle.



Gift certificate to her favorite restaurant

Even if you won’t be home in time to go to her favorite local restaurant and purchase a gift certificate there, most restaurants have the option on their websites to purchase a gift certificate and have it mailed. This is a quick but thoughtful option when looking for a last-minute gift for your mom.



Framed photo

Having a nice family picture to put on her desk at work is always a lovely gift. Scroll through your iPhoto to find a picture of the family or even just of you and have it printed. Pretty frames are available to purchase even at the dollar store so this is a thoughtful yet affordable option.


For the bookworm

If your mother enjoys reading as much as mine does, a gift card to Barnes & Noble to use on her Nook is always a considerate present. Or, if you are near a bookstore, you can always pick out a book in the store that you know she’s wanted to read for a while.


Alex and Ani “Mom” Charm Bangle

This is especially a good gift for the mother that is an Alex and Ani fan, also like my mother. Why not purchase another bangle for her to add to her collection that she’ll remember getting from you? Even if your mother isn’t aware of Alex and Ani, a simple bracelet like this one will surely make her smile.


A handwritten note

With the society we live in that is adjusted to always texting, FaceTiming, or emailing, it is rare that people give or receive handwritten notes anymore. Pick out a pretty blank card (which can also be found at the dollar store or even the drugstore) and write your mother a note expressing how much you love her and are thankful for her. This is a great last-minute gift and your mother will love it.



Does your mom have a sweet tooth? Plenty of bakeries now offer home deliveries of sweets such as cupcakes or chocolate covered strawberries. This is also a great last-minute idea for a gift. Georgetown Cupcake is well known for home deliveries as well as Baked by Melissa.



Seeds for her garden

If your mom tends a garden, purchasing flower or vegetable seeds for her garden is a thoughtful and kind gesture. When the seeds grow, you and her can remember that you bought them for her for Mother’s Day this year.



A phone call

If you can’t be with your mom for Mother’s Day this year, the sound of your voice will make your mother happy. Pick up the phone and take time out of your busy schedule to let Mom know how much you love her and appreciate her because she deserves to hear it.
