It’s now less than 24 hours to Mother’s Day 2022, and if you’re like many people, you’ve left your shopping until the last minute. Never fear! Here are some great Mother’s Day gifts that you can pick up even at the last minute that will be sure to impress all of the mothers in your life.

1. Flowers as Beautiful as She is

One great gift option is a bouquet of flowers. You can never go wrong with flowers, and most grocery stores or flower shops will have Mother’s Day bouquets available. If your mom is like me and loves the look of flowers, but hates when they die, consider a gift of flowers that will last forever such as silk flower arrangments.

2. Candy and Treats as Sweet as She is

Another option is a box of chocolates, her favorite candy, or some other special treat that she can indulge in on her special day. Just about every drug store, department store, and grocery store will have boxes of specialty chocolates and sweets packaged for Mom, but be sure to check out your local bakeries for a local specialty your Mom may love. In Spartanburg, South Carolina, where I live, one of my favorite treats are the cupcakes from our local Small Cakes shop.

3. A Gift Card and Shopping Trip to Her Favorite Store(s)

If you’re looking for something a little more personal, think about what your mom places your mom loves to do her personal shopping. If she loves bookstores, get her a gift card to your local independent bookstore or the Barnes & Noble in your town along with a separate gift card to purchase coffee in or on the way to the store. If she’s an Amazon fanatic, you can never go wrong with an Amazon gift card. Maybe she loves crafting, so a gift card to the local Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, or JoAnn’s is right up her alley. Or maybe your Mom loves to pamper herself with self-care and beauty products, so a gift card to buy her favorite things at Sephora or Ulta would be the perfect treat for her. with a separate gift card to purchase coffee on the way to the store.

Along with the gift card, consider giving her a homemade gift certificate worth a few hours of your time to take her on her special shopping trip to use the gift card. You can be assured that the time spent with you will be her favorite part of this last-minute gift!
