We've all been there — You have known for weeks that Mother's Day is just around the corner, and suddenly the day is closer than you thought (this Sunday) and you still haven't picked out a gift!
Whether it just slipped your mind to purchase something ahead of time or you decided to give a last-minute gift, there are still plenty of things out there. Skip sending flowers - boring. Send her flowers when she least expects it (not on her birthday either). No matter where she is, the most important thing you can do for your Mom is to tell her you love her. If you want to do a little something extra, this list provides last-minute gifts that can still be thoughtful and unique.

The gift of Amazon Prime is always a gift that will be met with great appreciation. It is both practical and thoughtful. If Mom already has a membership you don't know of, the membership will convert into a gift card that can be used on anything they want from Amazon.
Always a sure winner in my book, these giant strawberries from Golden State Fruit are lavishly hand-dipped in premium dark, milk and cupid pink white chocolate, then decorated with heart sprinkles and chocolate drizzles for a heartfelt gift. All chocolate covered strawberries are packaged in Golden State's signature gift box with ice packs, then shipped overnight to ensure perfect arrival. Yum!!!
Kindles make the perfect last-minute gift for Mom's who love to read. Even if she swears by the feeling of a real book in her hands, once she see how much easier it is to travel with or just use around the house, she'll be grateful you gifted this to her. The Paperwhite is waterproof and has a back-lit screen with zero glare. It can be read outside or in bed with the lights out.
If you think the Kindle is an absolute no-go, the Book of the Month Club might be a perfect alternative. The subscription service narrows a selection of new releases down to five options, and then Mom will be able to choose which hardcover book she would like to receive each month. If there is nothing of interest for that month, you can opt out and wait until next months selection come out.

thought to write about
