Not to freak you out, but Mother’s Day is this weekend and if you haven’t gotten mom something special, there is still time to look like the best son in the world.
Here are some last minute gift ideas that will still arrive on time and save you from mom guilt.
Amazon Echo Input. If you’ve had a hard time talking your mom into getting the Amazon Echo, this little gadget (which you will have to set up for her) allows her to turn her speaker into an Alexa-asking machine. This device will allow her to ask Alexa all the questions on her mind from the current weather to trivia to setting a to-do list. She can also jam out to her favorite music while blowing up your Facebook feed with corny cat memes. Echo Input adds Alexa to an external speaker and connects via 3.5 mm audio cable or Bluetooth. $19.99
Women’s Plush Fleece Robe With Hoodie. The perfect gift for that mom that always thinks it’s cold and never moves the thermostat below eighty-two degrees Fahrenheit. The soft, plush fabric will have her asking you to feel the smoothness and the hood means she can protect her hair or choose to not fix it depending on her mood. $59.99
Cool Mist Humidifier Ultrasonic Aroma Essential Oil Diffuser. As you get older, humidifiers become a necessary and essential part of your life. What’s pretty cool about this cool mist humidifier is that also comes with the option of adding essential oils. Mom can choose her favorite scents to fill the air so bring your allergy pills on your next visit. $29.99 Amazon (Prime Free Same-Day shipping).
Mom Pendant Sterling Silver Necklace. From the Caperci Love Collection, you seriously cannot go wrong with a mom-pendant necklace even if the diamonds are not real. This is also the perfect Mother’s Day gift if you’ve been dodging her calls and missed Thanksgiving last year. $22.09 (It comes with free shipping and returns for Prime members but most moms are not cold-blooded enough to return it.)
Shower/Bath Wine Glass Holder. Is there anything worse than spilling your drink while trying to take a shower or soak in a bathtub? Well, maybe picturing your mom in a shower but I digress. If your mom is a lush like mine and loves the hell out of wine, then I am guessing she doesn’t have a shower caddy for her wine glass and really wants one. Comes in a variety of colors and at only $13.95 you may want to pop for a bottle of wine to go with it.
In all seriousness, do something nice for your mom this year even if it’s a card and flowers. Wishing all the moms, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, cousins and dog moms out there the happiest Mother’s Day!
