The Mother of all Last-Minute Gift Guides
Mothers. They’ve done everything from change our diapers to soothe our teenage angst to put us back together after bad breakups.
So of course you’d never forget mom…. Right???
But hey, life happens. Sometimes we kind of just, you know, put things off.
But unless you want to wind up in an orphanage, right this very second would be a terrific time to light a fire under yourself, grab your credit card and your preferred tech device, and hop all over these fab online last-minute Mother’s Day gifts–all of which will arrive (or can be picked up) in time for Sunday if you jump on them now.
For the record, we’re anti-Mom’s Day gifts that imply she should cook, clean, organize, or do more work for anyone else. That defies the idea of this entire holiday, non? This day’s about giving her a break, and celebrating all the work she already does. So instead of ponying up for a fancy new kitchen mixer or vacuum, grab her something she might not otherwise get for herself. Such as….
A ticket to incredible shoes of her choice, care of Stuart Weitzman. With no expiration date, she can save it for whenever the mood strikes, or she needs at pick-me-up.
Or, for the Mom who wants to sweat: The gift of a workout with soul at Soul Cycle.
And some style-wise pieces to wear while getting her cycle on at Caelum Lifestyle.
For the Mom who wants to downsize her baggage, there’s the superchic, multi-colored chamois leather ‘Drew’ shoulder bag from Chloé at FarFetch.
And if you know she just needs a day off and a time-out (not as punishment, but as the ultimate reward), grab her a spa card from any of GrettaStyle’s beauty-bolstering locations. It means everything from a relaxing massage at GSpa or a pampering mani at GrettaCole in Wellesley or Copley Place, Boston.
Trust us, she’ll never know you didn’t start planning all of it a month ago.
