gift ideas


Happy almost-Mother’s Day! The weeks have been flying by recently and it’s hard to believe that we’re already a week into May, not to mention just a few days out from Mother’s Day. If you haven’t had a chance to get your gifts, the clock is ticking! I rounded up some last minute gifts for Mom you can get on Amazon Prime. Just make sure to check the estimated arrival before you buy– this can be different depending on where you live.

Last Minute Gifts for Mom on Amazon

Peter Thomas Roth Eye Gels / Mother’s Day is always a great opportunity to gift something the recipient wouldn’t buy themselves! These undereye patches are pricey, but I have friends who swear by them– they reduce puffiness, dark circles, wrinkles, and dryness.

Cricut Joy Xtra / I haven’t had very many opportunities to whip out my Cricut recently, but I’ve been living vicariously through my friend Kelly’s projects online. The Cricut is the ultimate “mom” tool and the possibilities are just endless! I’d definitely get one of the starter kits so she can get going immediately.

Nutrafol Hair Growth Supplements / This is another friend recommendation, especially for new moms dealing with postpartum hair loss. Bonus points if you get them multiple months!

Matrescence / This book BLEW ME AWAY and it just came out yesterday, so there’s no risk of giving them something they’ve already read. It’s the most beautiful and validating book about when a woman becomes a mother. Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend.

Skylight Digital Frame / This is a go-to gift of mine! I love that I can send new photos to the frames in a snap. It’s like the last minute Mother’s Day gift that keeps on giving.

Echo Show 8 / We have the Echo Show 5 in our kitchen and love it, but the larger size may be better if they move around a lot or have a big kitchen. I use our Echo Show to look up cooking videos, set multiple timers, ask Alexa questions, and more. (I recommend springing for a couple of Echo Pops too, so they can use Alexa around the house!)

Ember Smart Mug / My friend Ashley bought me this after Rory was born and wow, it’s a mom ESSENTIAL. My coffee actually stays hot all morning. It could stay hot all day, honestly. I’ll never go back!!

Kindle Page Turner / This is a little (and maybe lazy) thing…. but it’s such a game changer for moms who already have a Kindle! You clip one part onto the Kindle, then hold the remote in your hand and click it to “turn” the page. This way, you can just set the Kindle up wherever you want and then not have to move an inch after!!

Fabric Photo Album / I can’t think of a single mother who wouldn’t be moved to tears by a physical photo album full of memories. In just a couple hours, you can create the most thoughtful last minute gift for mom ever.

Garden Grown / My friend Julia’s cookbook launched yesterday! The recipes are all family-friendly and divided by the vegetable they’re focused on– plus, her husband Anel contributed a TON of gardening advice.

Kindle Paperwhite / If the mom doesn’t have a Kindle yet, she needs one! It’s the Amazon Mother’s Day gift I can confidently recommend to anyone with an interest in books, even if she’s not currently a big reader. It’s amazing how having an entire collection of them at your fingertips motivates you.

Sony Bluetooth Headphones / After a ton of (probably too much) research, I recently found my ideal over-the-ear headphones. They’re comfortable, cute, fantastic quality, and extremely well-priced– perfection!

Hatch Restore 2 / Is there any mom out there who doesn’t wish they could get more sleep? You can read my full review of the original Hatch Restore here, but the gist is that this clock helps you wind down, acts as a sound machine and reading light, wakes you up gradually with its sunrise alarm, and MORE. It’s a last minute gift for mom that doesn’t feel last minute at all.
