Here are eight of the best gifts you can score to make mom smile this Mother’s Day, even at the very last minute.

So you’ve waited and waited, and it finally snuck up on you: Mother’s Day is this Sunday. It’s officially the last minute—what is a son/daughter/father/grandchild/loved one to do!? First off, don’t panic! There are still plenty of gifts you can scoop up for mom at the last minute that are seriously thoughtful. We’ve rounded up eight of the best to ensure that despite your procrastination-tendencies, the mom in your life still has the best Mother’s Day ever:

For the busy mom: Merry Maids


For the mom who is constantly juggling the kids, work, and household chores, crossing one of these items off her list is just what she needs to relax. While tangible gifts are nice, a clean house is priceless. Services like Merry Maids will give mom peace of mind and a break from one of her most tedious day to day tasks. You can easily go online and book the Merry Maids to clean your house—if you make the appointment after Mother’s Day, it will give mom something to look forward to! Pricing is unique based on house size and layout, but you can call for an easy estimate. If Merry Maids isn’t in your area yet, check out Homejoy as another great option.

For the stressed out mom: Rejuvenator Microbubble Showerhead


Bubble bath is a typical Mother’s Day gift…this year; make the soothing gift a bit more unique with the Rejuvenator Microbubble Showerhead. The microbubbles clean much deeper into pores than a normal showerhead.  This special showerhead will also provide mom with softer hair and skin, letting her feel pampered from within the comfort of her own home.  Order now and receive a 40% discount on with the code MOTHERSDAY. You can also order it on, so this is really the perfect last minute gift for Prime members!

For the adventurous mom: Booze for Babes Book


Help mom explore something new with the Booze for Babes book. This book isn’t only about how to choose the right drink…which we all know is something on her mind. There are health tidbits packed in as well, with tips on things like how to save calories on drinks and hone your taste. This gift will teach mom how to buy, drink, order and serve spirits like a pro—a skill every woman should have in her back pocket. This book can be shipped express from so mom will have her handy guide in time for her special day.

For the sentimental mom: Kodak Moments Photobook


These books LOOK like the type of gift you have to order weeks in advance, but thanks to the awesome new Kodak Alaris technology, that is no longer the case! Give mom a gift she will always cherish when you capture some of her favorite memories in one beautiful keepsake. You can create them easily on your smartphone or tablet, and then pick it up later that same day at your local drugstore–isn’t that amazing!

For the on-the-go mom: Reebok Skyscape


Made popular by mom Miranda Kerr, these shoes are a great gift for the mom who is constantly on-the-go and needs some comfortable, durable shoes to go with her. These shoes have super soft soles and are machine washable (another plus for moms!). The best part about the Skyscape is that mom won’t have to sacrifice style with these kicks.  There are so many options to choose from, you’ll be sure to find one to satisfy every mom’s unique taste!

For the artsy mom: BloomNation


BloomNation is the perfect resource for the truest of procrastinators among us. Known as the Etsy of flower markets, BloomNation is your solution for sending the most unique, beautiful same-day flowers from a local artisan florist. You shop from thousands of local locations in over 3,000 cities. Even the pickiest gift giver will be sure to be satisfied thanks to the “BloomSnaps,” which shows the customer the completed arrangement for approval before it is sent! Participating florists include David Goldstein, florist for the Oprah Winfrey Network and David Filter, florist for Celine Dion. The mom who loves something truly unique will be touched with a one-of-a-kind flower arrangement.

For the foodie mom: Hamptons Lane Subscription


Hamptons Lane is a unique food delivery service that sends out a must-have box each month with a different theme. For May, mom will enjoy the Coastal Italy box, with everything she needs to spice up her meals for the month.  Place your Mother’s Day orders via email, where you can decide how many boxes you want to send mom and when they will arrive!
