Still don’t know what to get Mom for Mother’s Day this Sunday? Today at STYLEanthropy, I’m sharing last minute Mother’s Day gifts that you can pick up tonight or tomorrow, just in time for your Mother’s Day lunch, dinner or whole celebration day with Mom. Read on for some easy yet thoughtful ideas.
Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts
My Mom absolutely loves perfume. She never leaves home without a spritz here and there. Perhaps this is true for most women. Something about smelling so good, keeps you in a good mood and makes you feel special. So if you’re looking for fragrances for Mom, I suggest these two. And if you didn’t have time to order online, you can grab this at Elizabeth Arden counters nationwide such as your local department store like Macy’s, Kohl’s, or select Ulta stores among others.
Elizabeth Arden Always Red Fragrance
With top notes of red plum, blood orange and passion fruit; middle notes of jasmine sambac, rose petals, pink freesia; and base notes of mahogany woods, red amber and praline, this perfume is my favorite of the two. Always Red got that sweet fruit scent but it’s not that overpowering. This would be perfect for a younger Mom who is always on the go and loves to play outdoors with her little ones.
Elizabeth Arden Red Door 25 Eau de Parfum
With top notes of blackcurrant nectar, violet leaf absolute, natural rose water essential LMR (International Flavors and Fragrances Inc.’s in-house 100% pure Naturals facility based in Grasse, France); middle notes of Turkish rose absolute LMR, rose absolute LMR, and Indian jasmine sambac absolute LMR, this one smells floral and has a more mature scent. Red Door actually reminds me of the flowers back in the Philippines. This would be a great gift for an older Mom or Grandma! If my Lola (what we call Grandma in Filipino) were still alive, she would love this scent. I’m actually reminded of her when I catch a whiff of this.
A Bouquet of Roses or Her Favorite Flowers
Forgot to order flowers? FTD still accepts orders until tonight. But if you fail to read this before then, you can head to your local florist today or tomorrow, or even check out your local grocery. I’m sure they have something special for Mother’s Day. Flowers will definitely make your Mother or the Mother in your life feel special.
You can even give it to her with some of her favorite sweets like a cake, brownies or a box of her fave chocolates!
Nespresso Coffee Maker
Mom loves coffee? Then get her this fancy schmancy coffee maker from Nespresso. You can find it at Target, Williams-Sonoma, Bloomingdales, Macy’s and many other retailers. Even better if there’s a Nespresso boutique near you – so you can enjoy the full experience! I absolutely love my Nespresso. The cup of coffee and/or espresso that it makes is just beyond your usual cup o’ joe! It’s like having your own fancy cafe at home every morning.
Want to complete the experience for her? Add in some espresso or latte cups, also available at Nespresso.
Apple Watch or Fitness Tracker
As our Moms age, it would be nice to keep them physically fit. A fitness tracker such as an Apple Watch, can monitor her daily steps, calories burned, heart beat and much more. Go to your local Best Buy and check out the new styles and bands available that your Mom will like. I won’t judge if you pick up one for yourself too.
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick
Make her feel pretty and fancy with a new lipstick. I love that the Elizabeth Arden lipsticks are very moisturizing – something our Moms need as they age (just saying, Ma). You can find these at your department store like Macy’s, or order at ElizabethArden.com as a follow up gift sent straight to your Mom’s!

A Shopping Trip to Her Favorite Boutique
Ran out of time? Don’t worry, I won’t tell! Instead, make it look like you’ve planned it all along… after lunch or before dinner, take her to her favorite boutique and make her choose a special gift! Nothing beats the shopping experience paid for by your loved one. *wink wink*
Hope ya’ll enjoyed this Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts idea list. Let me know what you get your Mom. And to all the Mothers out there, especially my dear Mommy, a Happy Mother’s Day to you! Thank your for spreading your light. Xo, C.
