RED ALERT, RED ALERT! Mother’s Day is TOMORROW, and not even Amazon Prime will deliver a gift in time at this point. Fear not, you can still find the perfect last-minute Mother’s Day gift for the leading lady (literally) of your life. First of all, get offline (after reading this, of course), no, not to go watch Mother’s Day-approved movies that pass the Bechdel Test, but to get your Mother’s Day gift!
Because, if we haven’t said it clearly enough: time is running out on this Mother’s Day Eve, and let’s face it, your mother taught you everything you know. She deserves a gift that conveys even a fraction of the gratitude you have for her.
These are the last-minute Mother’s Day gifts you can get TODAY.
1. A donation to a cause that she’s most passionate about in her name.
Chances are, your fervor for social justice and women’s rights started at home with none other than M-O-M. For the mother who has everything (obviously she has you so what more could she want?!), a donation to Black Lives Matter or Planned Parenthood in her name is probably a much-appreciated gift.
2. (Her favorite) breakfast in bed.
If you’re lucky enough to live in the same vicinity as your mother, you can surprise her with breakfast in bed — a classic Mother’s Day celebration! Try this fancy avocado toast recipe or maybe butter her up with these breakfast cookies. She’ll likely love hearing you rustling around her kitchen while she luxuriates in bed, so get your groceries today!
3. A “treat yo’ self” gift basket.
This is so easy to put together with a quick run to a grocery store and/or one of those adorable trinket shops that somehow exist in every town, big or small. Just a few little things to help your mother feel cherished is all you need to make her day. Bonus points if you put it all in an over-sized jar for presentation’s sake.
