Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts for the Modern Mom

Holidays can creep up on us quickly! Especially when their dates vary! If Mother’s Day has snuck up on you and you still aren’t sure what to get, you’ve got one week to make up your mind! Here are some cute ideas I found in stores and online.

1. “I got it from my Mama”, Altar’d State Tank ($39.95)

Now, this tee may not make the best gift for your Mom who is 50+.. 🤷🏼‍♀️ But, if you are looking for a gift for your wife, Mama friend or even yourself, it’s the cutest! Who isn’t proud to say they “Got it from their Mama”. Pretty sure the older we get, the more we find this statement is true!! Totally loving the yellow! I may or may not have gotten one for little ole me!

2. “Mom Talisman” Necklace, Sequin Jewelry ($70)

While I don’t have this necklace, I do have 3 other pieces from Sequin. (And 2 more on the way!) Their quality/craftsmanship is excellent. Sequin’s pieces are SO unique and so perfect if you are looking to get your Mom something personal and different. The “Mom Talisman” has an artistic flare while the stones add that feminine touch. Sequin is currently running a 25% off sale for Mother’s Day! Use code “MOM25” valid 5/1-5/7.

3. Flower Vase Bookends, Uncommon Goods ($45)

I don’t know about you guys, but my Mother LOVES flowers. We are talking “crazy plant lady” status (lol, Love you Mom). While her love isn’t as much for cut flowers as it is for live ones, I was thinking that you could actually use these as pots if you wanted! Either way, what a beautiful way to dress up the stack of books laying around?! These bookends could also be used for pens/pencils, stationary, paint brushes, etc!

4. “Call my Mom before she freaks out” Dog Tag, Altar’d State ($10)

Who has a fur baby Mama in their life? If it’s you, you know that this is exactly what they would want to say to someone if they ever went missing! Haha! This tag is perfect for most pets and is a gift that is low dollar, funny & lighthearted.

5. “Mother Was Right” Mug, Altar’d State ($20)

Yes she was. I love coffee mugs that truly hit home and boy does this one! Wouldn’t this be perfect to stuff with a Starbucks gift card or other small trinkets your Mom may love? Altar’d State has such a cute variety of Mom’s Day Gifts this year!

6. “You’re Killing This Mom Thing” Candle Mug, Francescas ($16)

The perfect 2-in-1 gift that doesn’t break the bank! This Water Lily and Musk scent would be perfect for any candle lover. Once burned, Mom will always be able to use it as a coffee mug. This candle/mug combo gift could also go in a basket with other items!
