Five Last Minute Gifts For Those Who Still Don't Know Sunday Is Mother's Day
May 6, 2009
It's almost Mother's Day, and if you're a really good procrastinator then you're just getting around to thinking about the gift. Luckily, we've rounded up five last minute gift ideas that will make Mom think you've been planning for months – or at least longer than a few days.
1. Show your responsible, eco side and send her some organic chocolates from
Organic Bouquet. They have rush delivery available so the treats will arrive by Saturday (they don't deliver Sunday).
2. If she's a reader, then a basket from Book Bouquet is perfect. Choose a book to place in a gift basket with soothing bath products, snacks, or even coffee. They usually ship the same day you order, and can also overnight it.
3. You can't go wrong with flowers – as long as they look expensive and arrive alive. Flowers Fast offers same day delivery for those who have perfected the art of eleventh hour shopping.
4. At Ice.com, pick out a piece of jewelry for Mom and you can have it shipped free until today at noon. After that you'll have to pay more to get it there in time.
5. Get her a certificate from SpaFinder where they are currently offering $10 off Mother's Day packages. Order by today for second day air, or just send or print out an e-card as a placeholder until the gift arrives.
