Mother’s Day is 13 May. And ooh—just two days away!
Did you get her a Mother’s Day gift?
No need to feel guilty. No need to panic.
Life happens. And the best laid plans get gobbled up by that thing called “busy”.
And let’s admit it—most of us rush out at the last minute to find the perfect gift for the most important woman in our lives.
I remember, when my Mom was there, I’d make her a card. We’d start the day with coffee together. We’d go out. Sometimes, we went shopping. Whatever we did, we spent the day together and that would make her so happy.
Moms are such angels they are happy with just a hug.
And you know what else delights them?
Here’s a quick list of 50 things almost every Mom will love. All are thoughtful ideas and easy to get.

50 last-minute but thoughtful Mother’s Day gift ideas
- A Mother’s Day card.
Yes, yes, I know! But this one’s unique—it is a plantable greeting card. This one’s eco-friendly and is embedded with wildflower seeds. After she admires your card, she can plant it and watch your love bloom. Sweet, no? A perennial gift!
- A bunch of retro dried flowers greeting cards that make great keepsakes. Like these. No time to order? Grab handmade paper, write your message and tape on a pack of seeds.
- Planters with plants. Walk into the nearest nursery or gift shop. Easy. Your Mom will be thrilled when she watches those plants grow.
- Scented candles to relax her
- Floral top – good on jeans good on skirts.
- Personalized coasters, with loving words or photos of you.
