Phew! May is a busy month!
While we love to celebrate Mother’s Day each year, my family often feels cramped be the other festivities of the month (weddings, graduations, spring festivals, etc.) This means that we are often working last minute to get together gifts for our mothers and grandmothers. We want to be thoughtful, but the gifts need to also be easy and done in a flash.
Here are some of my favorite Mother’s Day last minute gifts:

This lovely box is filled with two plantable flowers. It was a perfect gift for my mother-in-law, an avid gardener.
Have a bit more time? Try one of these DIY carnation spheres. Very easy. Very impressive.
Treat your mother or grandmother to lunch, whether it is homemade or not. Buy your food and re-plate at home. Everything looks more lovely on real dishes.
Treat your loved one to a pampering manicure or pedicure. You can even tag along for a fun afternoon together.
A summery scent, like Lilly Pulitizer, is sure to please at this time of year. I like the price tag, too.
My gift buying guide is two-fold: is it something the recipient would treat themselves to? and would I appreciate receiving it?
Personally, I’d take any of the above, but I am personally hoping for a clean house and some extra sleep.
Happy Mother’s Day!
