Last Minute Ideas for Mother’s Day

Last Minute Mother's Day Gifts

I get it. I’m a last-minute girl. If you’ve totally waited until the last minute to come up with a great Mother’s Day gift idea for the big day, never fear. That’s what Jesus made Wifi, wine, and online shopping for.

Here are 10 last minute gift certificate ideas for Mother’s Day for all you slacker shoppers (myself included!) who would like to give something unique that doesn’t scream grocery store floral arrangement. Most of these are available online so you can comfortably shop in your pjs.

Mom jewelry

Tiny Tags

One of my favorite lines of personal “mommy” jewelry, I reviewed Tiny Tags before they got all famous on sites such as Real Simple and Glamour.

Stella & Dot 

Yes, me again with the jewelry suggestions. My blog friend (and co-host of Fashion Friday) Jo-Lynne Shane has just opened a Stella & Dot store! Check out her catalog.

Peace Love Mom tshirts


These are, hands down, my fave cool mom tees! I’ve owned three and I’m down to my last one as I wore my other two completely out! Click here to order a gift certificate. Warning, do not wear these with mom jeans as they may implode from all the coolness!


I don’t know any mom out there who couldn’t find something they love on Etsy! Plus this is a great way to support women artisans, jewelry makers, and other creative small businesses.

Spa Finder

I’ve not personally used Spa Finder, but just like jewelry, I don’t know any mom who would turn down a spa treatment! Here’s the direct link to their gift card section.

Tog & Porter

Personal stylist services are a busy working mom’s dream. I reviewed Tog & Porter’s services two summers ago and I’m literally writing this post as I wear my sheer Trinity orange top that their stylist chose for me! Check out their gift certificates here.

Stitch Fix

I may be one of the few women I know who has yet to try Stitch Fix. Looking for a perfect gift for the fashion loving mom on your list? Check out their gift certificates.


I don’t know a girl who can’t spend a good hour ogling all the beauty products in Sephora, my daughters included. Check out their gift card options here.


If you want to give a gift that empowers women entrepreneurs in impoverished areas such as Kenya or Guatemala, consider a gift card to Kiva. As your loan is paid back you can choose another small business owner to provide a micro-loan to so they can sustain their family and community. This really is a gift that keeps on giving!

Homemade Gift Certificates

Lastly I couldn’t write a gift certificate wrap up without mentioning the best kind. I’m a sucker for handmade gifts, which are honestly the best gifts from kids on Mother’s Day. I love handmade gift certificates. My 9-year-old is an incredible back scratcher and my 11-year-old is great at vacuuming!

 What last minute gift ideas would you add to the list?

    I’ve never heard of Tog & Porter but it sounds like something I must know about. Thanks Jamie! And happy early Mother’s Day!
