With Mother’s Day right around the corner, current gift options may seem a bit limited.

Don’t worry! You still have time to make her day special.

The saying goes, “It’s the thought that counts!” So, I’ve compiled a list of great last minute Mother’s Day treats that are easy to find, yet from the heart.

1. Gift Baskets

Say a lot in one little container, with a gift basket. Whether Mom is into chocolate or colorful socks, you can create a gift basket featuring all of her favorites. This Burt’s Bees basket is one idea from gifttree.com. The cool thing is you can find most, if not all, of these items at your local Walmart or Target. If your mother is not into beauty items consider a dessert basket with baked goods like this one featured on gourmetgiftbaskets.com.  You can bake the sweets yourself or purchase baked goods from your favorite grocery store.

2. Foodie Club Membership

If Mom is a self-proclaimed “Foodie” then a membership to an exclusive food of the month club like the clubs at Harry and David may make her feel inspired. Not to mention, boxes of delicious fruit or wine delivered right to her door can save her time and money.

3. Wine

Speaking of wine, if Mom is a connoisseur, consider buying her a bottle. You may even decide to make it a gift set by throwing in a pair of wine glasses and/or a wine holder.

4. Home-cooked Meal

A meal prepared by someone else goes a long way when you’re the one that usually has to cook dinner. Take kitchen duty off Mom’s hands, and prepare her a special meal. Does she love lasagna or are Belgian waffles more her style? Whatever her favorite is, I am sure Mom will enjoy sitting back and being served.

5. Books

You can’t go wrong with a good book. Consider a classic novel or a New York Times Bestseller. Not sure what Mom likes to read? Find out her favorite genre and go from there. Amazon.com is also another great resource when it comes to looking for a great read.

6. Art

Create a poem, song, or painting just for Mom. Handmade gifts are endearing. Think of the look on her face to know you created something out of love and admiration.
