Mothers Day is right around the corner and if you’re like a lot of people, you’ve not quite gotten around to getting Mom that perfect gift. The one to express your undying love and appreciation, all wrapped up in attractive packaging and a little bow. Unfortunately now you’re left with few options. Mothers Day brunches and special events booked up a long time ago and the clock is ticking.
Never fear, here are five great Mothers Day gifts that can be purchased last minute and online.
Stich Fix. Buying clothing as a gift is a risky business. It’s difficult to guess what will fit someone’s personal sense of style, and picking the wrong size can get you in a lot of trouble. I’m a huge fan of Stitch Fix. Each month you receive a box of clothes from your personal stylist. You can keep what you want and return what you don’t want. The boxes get progressively more accurate in choosing the clothing because they always take into account prior orders and what worked/didn’t work. You even get a little card that goes along with it showing you different outfit combinations that you can create out of your purchases. As someone who hates shopping this is a really big deal.
She’s Crafty. I love Pinterest. I aspire to be a mom who makes recycled egg carton art, homemade playdough or organic herb gardens in mason jars . Except I’m a mom of two toddlers with a full-time job. So all I can do is gaze longingly on Pinterest at the clever projects made by creative people. Although you may not have time to make lighting fixtures made of recycled wine bottles you can still purchase them from small business artisans. Two of our favorites are Etta+Billie and Colleen Mauer Designs.
Virtual Assistant for Moms. Of course I had to throw this in. I just had to. The unifying common denominator amongst all moms is that we are busy, busy, busy. Equivity Virtual Assistants for Moms gives busy mommies everywhere the one thing they don’t have…free time. The experts over at Red Tricycle agree!
Spa Treatments – I really don’t know any mom who would not be jazzed to get a gift certificate for a massage. I’m sure she’s out there, but I’ve not met her.
Event tickets – Date Night! Whether it’s the ballet, theater, concert, baseball game, stand-up comedian or something entirely different, there’s something for everyone.
