If you’re reading this, it’s most likely because you’ve done a little procrastinating leading up to Mother’s Day and left shopping to the last minute. But no need to worry, because I’ve got you covered! I love sharing last-minute gift guides leading up to specific celebrations, as I know there are always a few of you (like me!) who leave your shopping to the eleventh hour, which means that you may have to get a little more creative with your gift ideas.
So, I’ve gone ahead and done the work for you, and today I’m rounding up 9 last-minute Mother’s Day gift ideas for all of the wonderful mother figures on your list!
If you missed it, we have refreshed our Jilly Digital site with brand new Spring-inspired prints, one of my personal faves is the new For Evergreen Print; not only does it have an Easter Egg hidden somewhere in the print, but also 100% of the profits of this print to the Raincoast Conservation Foundation! Along with all of our digital prints, we also have a collection of presets to match any mother figure’s photo-editing style. The files are all digital and delivered to your inbox seconds after you checkout, so if you’re a last-minute shopper, you won’t have to deal with any shipping delays! 😉
If you have a mother figure on your list that is a small business owner, entrepreneur, or aspiring influencer, The Jilly Academy Courses would make for the ULTIMATE Mother’s Day gift. They’re packed with all of my tried, tested and true methods for building the business of your dreams. In the courses, we go over everything from brand strategy, influencer marketing, content creation, photography, digital storytelling, and so much more.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that my mom just recently started selling prints on her Etsy store, and she now has FIVE digital prints available and 2 physical prints available for purchase. If you have someone that loves and appreciates art, her pieces would make the perfect gift!!
My cousin Tori, aka Fraiche Living, is not only the co-author of our Fraiche Food Full Hearts cookbook, but she really does it all, from running her food blog, being an influencer, and launching her own meal planning service; there simply isn’t anything she can’t do. She is a Registered Dietitian, foodie, and mom of two boys and has a passion for creating wholesome and delicious recipes and meal plans to help nourish families. The Fraiche Table meal prep service brings the excitement back into the kitchen and makes meal-time less stressful. And it would make the perfect gift for any mother figure on your list!
Make sure to call your local florist asap to see if you can get your hands on a bouquet on such short notice. In my opinion, there is nothing better than a fresh bouquet of flowers for Mother’s Day!
2. WINE OR WINE TASTING
It wouldn’t be a Jilly round-up if I didn’t include wine LOL! Whether you are on a time crunch and need to pick up a few of their favourite bottles on your way over, or if you have a little more time, why not book a wine tasting for you to enjoy? Brownie point if you treat her to a few bottles after your tasing!
3. BRUNCH OR DINNER
An amazing gift that sometimes flies under the radar is cooking and hosting! If that mother figure or figures on your list love getting together with the family on their special day, there is no better gift than treating them to a brunch or dinner. Hand them a glass of wine, a mimosa, or their favourite drink to enjoy while you cater to them! If you have The Fraiche Food Full Hearts Cookbook, we have a brunch and dinner celebration menu in there to help take the stress out of planning, prepping, and hosting.
Another quick and easy gift to find at a local store near you is a candle! I seriously can’t have enough candles, so much so that I have a dedicated spot for all of them in our bathroom AND living room! LOL!
5. GIFTS THAT DON’T COST A THING
If you’re on a budget or reallyyy left things to the last minute, there are a few creative gifts that may require a little more work but won’t cost a thing! You can offer to clean or organize their house or help them tackle it, clean their car or even do a chore of their choice!
Well, there you have it! I hope these 9 things help those of you who are looking for the perfect last-minute gift for anyone on your list this Mother’s Day!
