Procrastinators, rejoice! Vogue’s edit of the best-of-the-best last-minute Mother’s Day gifts is filled with options that won’t indicate anything other than well-planned or prepared thoughtfulness. Let this curation of perfect presents and little pleasures serve as a reminder that, yes, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 14. Although we still recommend picking out something for mother, grandmother, sister, wife, or friend sooner rather than later, and perhaps the fastest shipping option available, too.
The easiest and most classic option is arranging a day of delivery of fresh floral arrangements. Might we suggest Vogue’s curated bouquet from Urban Stems? A quick trip to the beauty counter or (perhaps in-store pick up) works well for a little pick me up, say, a lipstick, perfume, or cream; while coffee table books and other lovely gifts are available with two-day shipping—and thank goodness. Though time together or a card is always accepted, all of these last-minute Mother’s Day gifts will still be accepted even once the holiday has come and gone. Not to worry, there’s a wonderful assortment of last-minute gifts she’ll be sure to love, below.
