Amazon vs. Target: 10 Last Minute Gifts for Mom


PSA: Mother’s Day is right around the corner! For those who haven’t found that perfect gift yet, don’t panic. It may be crunch time, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the quality of your gift. While flowers and candles are sweet, give mom a gift that shows you truly appreciate her and all that she does for you.

The key to Mother’s Day shopping is buying mom the gifts she wouldn’t consider buying herself, since she’s always putting the needs and wants of her family first. Say no to “Mom” picture frames and heart shaped necklaces, unless you’re under the age of ten. Instead, treat mom to a sophisticated yet functional gift that matches her lifestyle.

Thanks to 2-day Amazon Prime and the magic shopping spell that Target (and Target online) can put on us, there are hundreds of gifts to chose from, just a click away! To make things even simpler, I’ve shared 10 thoughtful gifts that your mom will absolutely love this Mother’s Day.

If none of these items meet the mark and describe your mom, don’t give up entirely. Spend 5 minutes thinking of gifts your mom deserves and I promise an idea will come to mind. If you aren’t able to purchase a gift, plan a fun day together such as brunch plans, a pampering mani/pedi, or an experience such as a show or activity you both love. Whatever gift you decide or don’t decide, don’t forget to give mom a call and tell her you love her and thank her for all she’s done for you. Because let’s face it – there’s no one in this world like your mom.
