Great Mother’s Day Gift Ideas and Shopping Tips

We all love our moms. After all they’ve done for us, they deserve something really special on Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is on Sunday. Before starting shopping, you should do your homework, because it’s important to do research on the gift. You don’t want your mom to be disappointed with poor service or quality of the product.

Search for deals with free shipping, but make sure the gift arrives on time!

If you don’t have enough time to get mom that awesome gift in the mail, have a backup plan! Maybe a crafty/handmade gift will help in a pinch. And do not forget about E-Gift cards and E-gift Certificates!

A gift card or gift certificate to Mom’s favorite restaurant can be a delicious Mother’s Day surprise. Plastic gift cards are typically issued by large chain restaurants in whatever amount you choose. Paper gift certificates are typically for local restaurants and may be offered through online services.

Mother’s Day Cookies:

Very traditional Mother’s Day gifts are chocolates, cookies and flowers.

Instead of ordering directly from a local florist or nursery, use a major delivery service such as FTD, 1-800-Flowers or Teleflora.

Better for the waistline than chocolates are fruit gift baskets. Try to put together a basket yourself with the freshest fruits and berries from a farmers market or high-quality organic or natural grocery store. This could also save you some money!

Body Oil Essentials and Spa Kits:

Could Mom use a little pampering? A perfect gift might be a spa certificate. You could buy one either locally or through an online service. Make sure the spa is exactly what she’d want and expect. If not sure, consider buying a spa kit for you mom!

Ipad, Phone, Kindle etc cases and sleeves:

Mom might love an electronic gadget such as a Nook, Kindle e-reader or an iPad. While a high-tech device might seem like an impersonal gift, you can warm it up by having her initials or name engraved on it, or by buying her a monogrammed case.
