Well hello, May 1! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and Mother’s Day is ONE WEEK AWAY! Let me guess – you’re not prepared either. I confess, in this “new normal” we are living, Mother’s Day has fallen to the back of my gift-giving radar. And I’m a mom! What?? Time to get serious. Here are my picks for the BEST Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gifts.
Given that time is of the essence – these are LAST-MINUTE, after all – I’m choosing the easily-delivered-to-her-inbox types of gifts. I appreciate them and if you choose wisely, your mom will too! Of course, sending a bouquet of flowers or a beautiful potted plant to go along with the download or subscription is NEVER a bad idea.
Alright, here we go:
Printables and Digital Downloads
Given the current status of shipment times, and the fact that Mother’s Day is a week away, let’s look digital. One option is to purchase downloadable artwork from sites like Etsy. I’m absolutely in love with these stunning images from a small company on Etsy – John and Jude Studio. There are only a few to choose from, but they are beautiful.
There are a number of digital artwork studios on Etsy, so take a look through and find something that suits your mom’s particular style. Maybe she needs a digital planner, or presets for Instagram? There are countless easy gifts for mom on Etsy. And if all else fails, send an e-gift card right to her inbox!
Cricut Access Premium Subscription
If your mom is a crafter, or a would-be crafter, or loves making cards and things, a Cricut Access Premium Subscription might be the perfect fit for her. Especially if she’s already got the machine and is learning what to do with it. The Cricut Access Premium Subscription will give her access to over 100,000 images to use in her projects, including some licensed images! How cool is that? It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Of course, if she doesn’t already have one, you could add the Cricut Maker or the Cricut Joy to her order. It may not arrive in time for Mother’s Day, but you can always send her a picture! To learn a little more, check out my post on Why You Need to Get a Cricut Maker.
Amazon Prime Gift Subscription
This one is pretty awesome. You can gift your mom an Amazon Prime Subscription, and she’ll not only enjoy the free shipping with no minimums when she purchases from Amazon, but she’ll also be able to stream thousands of movies and TV shows AND get access to over 1,000,000 songs! Say what?? Great value AND tremendous options contained within one gift! YOU will be her favourite, for sure. Don’t worry, I won’t tell. Use this link to go ahead and get her started:
Audible Gift Subscription
I don’t know about your mother, but mine LOVES to garden. She also enjoys reading. See where I’m going with this? That’s right – why not “read” in the garden. I’m loving the multi-tasking option coming out of this, and it means that my mom can choose her book, choose her plants and she’s one happy camper!

I know, gift cards sometimes feel like a bit of underachievement, but it really does allow your mom to get the gift she truly wants. Etsy and Amazon both offer e-gift cards for sale on their site. Consider what she truly loves, and hit their website.
As long as you have your mom’s needs top of mind, you’ll be sure to find the perfect card.
So which of these best last-minute Mother’s Day Gifts are you going to get? I know I personally would be happy with ANY of them. Of course, ALL of them wouldn’t be a bad thing either ?
