Best last-minute Mother's Day gifts

1. Philips SmartSleep Alarm Clock

The Philips SmartSleep Alarm Clock is designed to help your mom wake up feeling more refreshed. It begins to light up 30 minutes before a requested wake-up time and mimics the natural sunrise, gradually reaching full brightness. Psychotherapist Lindsey Huttner, LCSW, previously told BETTER that using a sleep tracker, like the one available on the Philips SmartSleep app, is the best cure for sleeplessness.

2. Cocokind Organic Facial Cleansing Oil

For the beauty-loving mom, the Cocokind Facial Cleansing Oil includes coconut, avocado, tea tree and lavender oils that remove dirt and impurities. The brand uses ingredients that are gluten-free, cruelty-free and certified organic — and this oil, included in our fair trade skin care guide, is designed to be a tough makeup remover while being gentle on her face.

3. Echo Dot

This smart home device is one of the best smart home gifts for the bedroom. Featuring a compact design, the Echo Dot can do everything from controlling your household thermostat to hands-free calling. It’s also compatible with Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Sirius XM and others so she can easily play her favorite songs.

4. Apple AirTag

Apple recently announced the launch of the new AirTag during its “Spring Loaded” virtual event, and they start shipping out just in time for Mother’s Day. The tag — which works like the popular Tile— can help your mom keep track of her purse, wallet and other belongings by giving her the precise location of her items whenever she misplaces them. For fashionable moms, the AirTag comes in a special Hermes Key Ring.

5. TOMS Alpargata

These TOMS shoes, one of the best eco-friendly sneakers, are comfortable and versatile for any mom who’s always on the go.. They are made with recycled plastic bottles plant-derived, recycled materials. The brand recently launched its Earthwise collection, which includes footwear made with chemical-free plant dye, organic cotton, wood pulp, and regenerated nylon crafted from recovered fabric scraps.

6. Yeti Rambler 30-Ounce Tumbler

On days when she needs to take her coffee to go, this popular 30-ounce tumbler from Yeti can keep her drink hot “until the last sip,” according to the brand. The dishwasher safe tumbler comes in fun colors like Seafoam and Prickly Pear Pink, and you can add customizations to it on Yeti’s website for a fee like a monogram or a sweet message.

7. Slip Silk Pillowcase

Help your mom achieve a better night’s sleep with this silk pillowcase from Slip. It’s crafted with pure silk and boasts a wrinkle-free design. Board-certified dermatologist Caren Campbell, MD, also previously told us that silk is also “less irritating to the skin” compared to other fabrics. It comes in over a dozen colors, including Desert Rose, Silver and Dusk.

8. Gravity Weighted Blanket

The Gravity weighted blanket is one of the best weighted blankets to shop. It has a soft, micro-fleece exterior and an interior filled with glass beads to help your mom relax before bedtime.

9. Fields of Europe Flowers

If you’re looking for a traditional gift, you can get mom a bouquet of flowers delivered directly to her door. This one includes roses, daisies, lilies, carnations and assorted greenery. You can also find more flower delivery options in our flower bouquet shopping guide.

10. Instant Pot

If your mom has an affinity for cooking at home, the Instant Pot may be a good Mother’s Day gift. There are multiple models from the popular brand, as laid out in our Instant Pot buying guide, but this 6-quart version can cook up to six servings in a single pot. It also equips functions — from pressure cooking to yogurt making — and is dishwasher safe. Instant Pot also sells separate accessories for the kitchen appliance, including a steamer basket and a springform cake pan.

11. Rituals The Ritual of Sakura Medium Set

This highly rated gift set from Rituals can help your mom relax and nourish her skin. It includes bestselling products from the brand, including a body scrub, a foaming shower gel, a body cream and a hand wash. All of the products are scented with cherry blossom and made with rice milk and jojoba seed oil for softer, more moisturized skin.

12. KeepCup Cork Edition

The KeepCup reusable cup is crafted from durable tempered glass, natural cork and alloy. The thick wall keeps hands safe from burns and the pop-top closure helps to prevent spills on the go.

13. Kindle Paperwhite

The Kindle Paperwhite is a good gift option for any mom who’s a bookworm. It’s water-resistant and glare-free, plus it has a long-lasting battery and a 300-pixel-per-inch resolution. “I can read whatever I want, wherever and whenever I please,” contributor Kirsten Akens said. “With a few taps, I can increase or decrease font sizes, line spacing and page margins. I can select different font styles — from serifed options to sans and back again, depending on my mood.”

14. Meural

The Meural Smart Art Frame allows your mom to personalize the photo canvas with her own pictures or curated paintings, schedule display times and easily adjust settings on its 1080p HD display. It made our best digital picture frames guide, partly for its matte finish design, the quality of its color rendering and the available library.

15. La Maison Du Chocolat Sparkling Mother’s Day Hat Box

This Mother’s Day hatbox from La Maison Du Chocolat features both fruit-infused and plain chocolate gift boxes, including the Passionately Peach Gift Box, the Infinite Flower Gesture Gift Box and the Praline Gift Box.

The brand is offering free overnight shipping on all orders over $125.

16. Cricut Joy

If your mom is a fan of crafting and everything DIY, she might like the popular Cricut Joy machine. She can use the relatively compact machine to make everything from vinyl decals and labels to custom cards and banners. The machine can cut more than 50 materials, including paper, vinyl and cardstock. The company also makes larger versions of the machine — like the Cricut Explore Air 2 — if your mom might be interested in taking on larger or more intricate projects.

17. Outdoor Voices Exercise Dress

Fitness apparel brand Outdoor Voices recently relaunched its popular Exercise Dress and added new features including adjustable T-back straps and a phone-friendly second pocket.
