Mother’s day is this Sunday, May 11. If you haven’t even though about a gift yet, don’t panic. You still have time. You will want to find something that your mother will appreciate, because most likely she spent hours raising you, supporting you, and even changing your diapers. If you have other important women in your life (like a grandmother, mother-in-law, or step mother) the following gifts can also work for them.

The most important thing is that you find a gift that will make an impression and let your mother (or mother-figure) know that you spent time considering what she might like. If you do wait ’till the last minute, we included some gifts that will work for that situation too, because we all get busy, and mothers usually understand that. So take a few minutes to peruse our list, and get shopping!

1. Choose something tasty

Everyone loves a good treat, and holidays are an excuse to indulge in them. If you know your mom likes chocolate, consider purchasing a nice box of chocolates or truffles. If you live far from your mother, consider ordering some gourmet chocolates for her. There are many online chocolate stores. Godiva is just one idea. You can also order cookies online at Mrs. Fields or another store, or perhaps you can order candy.

There are other delectable treats you can consider, like Edible Arrangements if your mom loves fruit. This is a healthier option that many people love to receive. If the companies listed above don’t deliver to the area where your mother lives, just completing a simple internet search will show you stores that deliver candies, cookies, or fruit near her.
