Mother’s Day is right around the corner, but there’s still plenty of time to find a truly special gift for the woman who matters most. Whether you’re perpetually late when it comes to the holiday or Mother’s Day simply snuck up on you this year, we’ve rounded up some of the most thoughtful and heartfelt last minute gift ideas.
Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Practical Gifts For Mother’s Day
When it comes to Mother’s Day, gifts that are practical in nature are a sure way to put a smile on her face! I mean, they are meant to make her life easier, and what Mom doesn’t want or need that?
With summer on its way, my Mom (and seemingly everyone else around me), has not only begun eating healthier, she’s also started working out more frequently. And I know that it would mean the world to her if I helped kick-start her fitness journey with a gift that brought her one step closer to her goals. One gift that’s at the top of her wishlist this Mother’s Day is the Vitamix Personal Stand Blender, although I know she’d be content with any of the Juicers/Blenders that Best Buy has to offer. It’s the ideal size for at-home use and would allow my Mom to make smoothies, soups and more, which is something she does daily, might I add!
But Best Buy also carries a wide range of Fitness Trackers, including the FitBit Alta HR Fitness Tracker, which would make another great last-minute gift for the fit Mom. Not only do these devices act as a personal trainer of sorts, allowing her to track her daily fitness and sleep patterns, they can also sync to her smartphone so she can see when she receives incoming calls/texts. Plus, nowadays Fitness Trackers are available in stylish designs and ultra-chic colours, like Pink and Fuschia!
Another impressive and extremely practical Mother’s Day gift is a vacuum. Although it might seem silly to some, I totally have Dyson dreams, and I know I’m not the only one. But if you really want to impress her, a Robot Vacuum is the way to go. If you’ve yet to see one in action, they motor around your household (and keep your pets intrigued), while you kick back and relax. So they’re ideal for Mother’s Day because she’ll never have to do the dirty work again! And trust me, for that, she’ll thank you for years to come.
But Dyson also recently released a new beauty innovation that would be the perfect gift for any Mom on Mother’s Day. The Dyson Supersonic is a lightweight hair dryer that helps to prevent heat damage thank’s to its unique design. Air is drawn in and amplified by three times, producing a high-pressure, high-velocity jet of air. This means that she can dry her hair faster than ever before. And, she’ll feel like a Queen doing so! This is one gift that I might have to buy for my Mom with the selfish intention of stealing it from her down the line! Shh, don’t tell!
Heartfelt Gifts For Mother’s Day
The secret to finding a last-minute gift that doesn’t read last minute is to make sure it’s something she’ll cherish for years to come. In the past, that’s either meant finding my Mom a gift that is truly heartfelt and sentimental or finding a practical gift that will allow her to relax and unwind.
In the realm of heartfelt gifts, nothing compares to a jewelry piece that literally tells Mom how much you care. From stunningly subtle Shine Bracelets thanking her for all that she’s done to Mom pendants that act as a daily reminder of your love, a special accessory is sure to put a smile on her face.
I’ve also never met a Mom who didn’t love photos of their family, so why not gift her a Digital Photo Frame? Their sleek design makes them perfect for any space and they allow her to share her favourite photos/memories with all who enter her home. And if you’re looking to score some extra points, pre-load a few of her favourite photos of your family! She’ll be totally impressed!
For practical gifts that allow her to relax and unwind, Best Buy carries a wide range of aromatherapy/diffusers. I’ve personally owned the Stadler Form Jasmine Fragrance Diffuser and consider it a total mood changer. So I know that whether Mom uses it in her bedroom, bathroom, or beyond, it’s bound to soothe away any of her worries and stresses.
Another simple idea to ease away her worries and stresses? Headphones! I don’t know about your Mom, but my Mom is someone who ritually searches iTunes for new music. So I know that a pair of headphones would be a practical and thoughtful gift in her eyes. And I can only imagine that others would agree!
Tech Gifts for Mother’s Day
For the tech-friendly Mom, BestBuy.ca is THE destination to find a great Mother’s Day gift. With a number of e-readers, tablets, cameras, laptops and more available, you’re sure to find a last-minute option that totally tickles her fancy.
In the past, my family purchased the Kobo eBook Reader for my Mother and although she’s now progressed to the Apple iPad Mini, she used the Kobo for years to read and loved it. She now loves her Apple iPad Mini because it allows her to listen to music, peruse Pinterest, shop online, and so much more. And she’s not the only woman I know who feels that way! And if your Mom already owns a Tablet, why not gift her a Tablet/iPad Accessory that allows her to further make it her own.
Finally, in this day and age, Netflix is king, even for Mom. So why not make it easier for her to access her favourite movies and series with a Media Streaming Device. Being from an Apple-obsessed family, my Mom owns the Apple TV, but there are a number of other brands which carry equally amazing Media Streamers, such as the Roku Premiere+. No matter the device you settle on, Mom will be ecstatic to know she can now watch what she wants when she wants!
