Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10th. Yikes! Are you ready or have you waited until the last minute? Hey, I completely understand. Mother’s Day really snuck up on me this year with everything going on in the world. No worries! I’ve got a list of last-minute gift ideas for moms who love to bake, garden or travel. I even included a few spa gifts.

If you’re like me, you do most of your shopping online. Seems like this is the safest way to shop during these trying times. 

It’s not too late to get mom a gift she’ll always treasure. Enlist the kids to add a homemade card and you’re good to go. We moms love homemade cards from our kids or grandkids.

Just click on any of the links below to order last-minute gift ideas for mom. 

Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Moms 

Happy Mother's Day Card

Moms Who Love to Bake

If baking is your mom’s thing, she definitely needs a KitchenAid Mixer. Yes, it’s pricey, but I’ve had mine for well over 20 years and it’s still going strong.
Baking is a precise science and many recipes call for sifted flour. You can sift the flour in style with this green flour sifter. It also comes in pink!

I’m sure you’ve seen all the Tasty videos on Facebook. They now have a Tasty Cookbook full of those delicious-looking recipes. 

This deluxe bakeware set has everything an aspiring baker needs! This 62 piece set includes cake pans, a bread pan, piping bags, tips and more.

Moms Who Love to Garden

Every gardener needs a set of gardening tools AND a way to keep them all together. This is my personal favorite.
A gardening bench is a must-have for the serious gardener. This one is a best seller and it’s not that expensive!

If mom is a beginner gardener or wants to try her hand at raised bed gardening, go big by gifting mom with her own raised garden bed. 

Don’t forget the garden seeds!

Moms Who Love the Beach

Of Love & Sea Glass is such a pretty book full of inspirational quotes and deserves a place on the coffee table. “It showcases and celebrates the small and silent world of sea glass, tempting our imagination, returning us to a sense of wonder, love, and delight.”  Get this beautiful book here.
This thick terry round beach towel or yoga mat comes in 18 different patterns. The flamingo pattern is my favorite because I just have a thing for flamingos.

If your mom loves the beach (like me), these 8-pack beach towel clips will come in handy. Don’t you hate when the wind keeps blowing your towel off of your chair? These towel clips are the trick to keeping those towels in place. 

Speaking of beach towels, you can never have enough. This oversize plush cabana towel is perfect for that next beach trip. 

A great gift idea is a new beach bag filled with an oversized towel, beach towel clips, and cup holders. Don’t forget the sun hat

These cup holders have pointed spikes and stick right into the sand. Plus, they have a built-in bottle holder. These are the perfect last-minute gift ideas for mom. Plus, they are inexpensive.

Moms Who Love to Travel

If your mom is a jet setter and is frequently traveling around the world, I’m jealous! For real, she deserves a beautiful passport holder and Kate Spade delivers. This leather passport holder comes in pink (my fave) and if any of my kids are reading this, yeah, you’ve found my gift for Mother’s Day. 🙂

Maybe a luggage tag is more your mom’s style. This Lilly Pulitzer Luggage Tag is as beautiful as it is functional. I say get them both!

Whenever traveling becomes a thing again, surprise mom with a new set of luggage

Moms Who Love Spa Day

Spoil mom with this Spa Gift Basket that includes a Luxury Bath Set With Lavender & Tea Tree Oil.

This Deluxe Bath Spa Gift Set is 100% all-natural and is infused with kiwi extract and leaves skin visibly firmer, softer, and smoother. I’ll take two, please!

A Foot Spa Bath Massager with Heat Bubbles Vibration is just the thing for tired feet. It’s also a great start to an at-home pedicure. 

Speaking of home pedicures, mom can do her own pedicure like a pro with this professional pedicure kit

Of course, you will need to grab an Essie nail polish or three for your mom. I love the color or this nail polish

Which one of these gift ideas would your mom love?

I would love that yoga mat/beach towel. It’s pretty uncomfortable laying on the sand after a while. so this thicker one sounds good to me.

Sarah Bailey April 24, 2017 - 6:19 am

We’ve already had Mother’s Day this year here, but my Mums birthday is May and I’m struggling on ideas of what to get her so this is fantastic!

Jaime Nicole April 24, 2017 - 6:27 am

I love the green flour sifter! I’m such a kitchen supply nerd and I love things like that with just a little pop of color.

How did you know I enjoy baking, gardening and traveling. Any of these choices would work and be wonderful to give or receive.

I love these ideas! I really want the luggage tag because it is just so adorable. If i had a passport, I’d want the passport holder too!

Jeanette April 24, 2017 - 9:40 am

Love all of these ideas. I may have to send this post over to my husband so that he will get some ideas of what his wife would like for Mother’s Day LOL.

These are great gift ideas! I have a KitchenAid mixer and I love it. I think anyone would love to have one.

These are great gift suggestions. I never know what to by my mom each year.

Mimi Green April 24, 2017 - 6:48 pm

I just realized Mother’s Day is a few weeks away. I could really use a vacation but I’m certain that won’t be a thing. I will settle for a handbag I’ve got my eye on at Fossil.

Bella April 24, 2017 - 6:49 pm

So many great ideas! My 2 favourites are definitely the mug and the cute travel tag!

Claudia Krusch April 24, 2017 - 7:24 pm

These are great last minute gift ideas. My Mom and I go for a Spa day every year for Mothers Day.

Miles L. April 24, 2017 - 9:47 pm

I’ve been thinking of what to give my kids. These gardening tools will help them appreciate the outdoors. Thank you!

Jacqui S April 24, 2017 - 10:47 pm

OMG. I cracked up on that mug. That is something I would have given my mom before, and then listen to my sisters yell at me haha. Great list! Love the spa sets!

Tina Butler April 24, 2017 - 10:57 pm

This is all for me as I am a mom who loves all of those things and loves to blog about them. I am in love with that gardening bench. Thank you for sharing all of your ideas.

David Elliott April 24, 2017 - 11:11 pm

These are very cute gifts to give a mother. I need to think about something to get my mother very soon.

My Teen Guide April 25, 2017 - 3:24 am

I think my mom would love a new Kitchen Aid mixer! She’d love this one because it is in her favorite color – red. The coffee mug is hilarious. I would want that too but I think my sister is going to throw a fit. LOL.

Paula Schuck April 25, 2017 - 11:46 am

These would make wonderful gifts! Who wouldn’t love any of these? They are perfect.

Dawn McAlexander April 25, 2017 - 4:50 pm

I would all of these for Mother’s Day, please. I mean, I like to travel, I like to cook, I love the beach and I love to garden. So, why can’t I have it all?

Kita Bryant April 25, 2017 - 4:55 pm

My mom doesn’t really like any of those things, unfortunately. She’s the hardest woman to shop for!

Right here is the right website for anybody who wants to understand this topic.
You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually
would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject that has been discussed for a long time.
Excellent stuff, just excellent!
