    54 Last-Minute Mother's Day Gifts You Basically Can't Go Wrong With

    No matter your budget, these gifts are sure to wow your mom. (And there's still time to order them!)

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Mother's Day, shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for May 8th!

    1. A Kindle Paperwhite that's thin, glare-free, and – did I mention? – WATERPROOF. That means your mom can read in the bath (game changer). Plus, you could preload some books you know she wants to read to really take the gift to the next level.

    2. A wine decanter she'll feel extra fancy using as it aerates her wine to make it taste even better.

    3. A Legacybox that'll make it so easy for her to turn all of her old photos and videos of you growing up digitally so you can all treasure them forever.

    4. Lego flower bouquet kit bound to bring a smile to your mom's face twice — once when she opens the box and then again when she puts it together and realizes it can be a functional piece of decor in her home (that never dies!!).

    My mom LOVES Legos. So much so that my dad and I have been buying her the architecture sets as gifts for years now. Last year, when I was trying to remember what set she had showed in interested in, I stumbled upon this beautiful floral bouquet and knew she needed it. Stock was limited last year, so I made my dad drive 30 minutes away to pick up one of the last ones, and it was so worth it. This Lego set is so cool and incredibly functional. The flowers look real from afar and can be displayed all year long. My mom loved this gift so much. If your mom is a Lego fan, buy this set right now (because it may sell out quickly). 

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough wonderful things about this Lego set. The build was calming and enjoyable. The directs were step by step and were easy to follow. The end product is a beautiful display piece. People are shocked to see that it is made from Legos. The colors are wonderful and it is amazing how realistic it is. This will be a long-lasting display piece in our household." —Hingle McCringleberry

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with two-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Mother's Day (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    5. A Vitamix immersion blender here to make it incredibly easy for her to make delicious soups and sauces. This blender has a super powerful motor, one-handed operation (no matter if she's a righty or lefty), five speeds, and a four pronged blade. Plus, it can be used in any container with at least a three-inch wide opening, meaning fewer dishes to wash. And hey, if that's not enough, it also comes with Bobby Flay's stamp of approval, which any mom would appreciate.

    Promising review: "I saw Bobby Flay use this, and I wanted to make something I saw on his show. It's so powerful and won't ever scratch any dish you use! It's well made and will last, just like my 25-year-old blender!! Top shelf! I always purchase top-of-the-line appliances, and Vitamix is the best. This is easy to use, versatile, and powerful. It's now more convenient to make food and beverages." —Chris65

    Get it from Vitamix for $149.95.

    6. An assortment of Baked By Melissa mini cupcakes in a variety of different flavors that are the perfect bite-sized sweet treat to enjoy on Mother's Day (and the days following).

    7. A makeup brush UV sanitizer here to make it super easy for her to disinfect her makeup brushes. All she have to do is put the brushes in it and press the button on top. Five minutes later, her brushes will be clean and ready to use again.

    Promising review: "This first caught my eyes when I saw how chic and cute it is. Then I found out it actually help sanitize makeup brushes! I wear makeup regularly, but to be honest, I don't clean my brushes frequently enough. I found it kind of frustrating to clean my brushes. Not sure why but it always takes a REALLY LONG TIME for my brushes to dry. This is such a lifesaver as I know I can sanitize my brushes every time I use them with just one click! I don't have to worry about skin issues caused by dirty brushes anymore! It also makes a really good/cute gift. Very happy with this purchase." —CMC

    8. An insulated Rifle Paper Co. cup perfect to keep her drink cold for hours and hours so she can enjoy the whole thing during her catch-up sesh with her friends (because we both know that those go on forever).

    9. A Bandolier phone case designed with a card case on the back *and* a detachable strap, so she can keep her essentials close and not worry about carrying a purse all the time while still looking and feeling sleek.

    10. A bathtub caddy to truly make her "me" time some of the best it has ever been. This caddy fits most tubs and has ample space for all her essentials as she takes some much-deserved R&R. Just be warned, she may never leave the bathtub again...

    11. An Ember temperature control ceramic mug that'll keep your mom's coffee (or tea) warm for hours so she doesn't take a sip of a cold beverage when she gets distracted. It's the little things in life that make it more luxurious.

    Promising review: "I finally bought one for myself, and I love it! Even in the Arizona heat, it keeps the wine cold outdoors. It’s a great alternative to having to use a bucket or got back to the fridge/freezer. It's a great gift for a wine lover, and Vinglace boxing is very classy." — Stagg

    15. A puzzle plateau with a large surface and four drawers that are perfect for anyone who enjoys puzzles but hates when the pieces take over the whole kitchen (or coffee) table. Reviewers say this is light enough to easily move out of the way and that the drawers are removable as well, making their puzzle-doing experience the best it has ever been.

    The board measures 21"x29" and fits most puzzles up to 1,000 pieces, though reviewers mention 1,000-piece puzzles take up the whole main board.

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my nana as a gift, as she's always doing puzzles and stealing my parent's card table. She's always difficult to buy for, but this was a winner. She's been using it nonstop ever since! She (and my parents) love being able to move the puzzle at whatever stage it's in. It arrived in perfect condition and works great. The drawers do come out all the way, so you have to be careful about pulling them out, but that's helpful too because you can sort, move around, or use them for creating sections of the puzzle and then moving them into place. I would definitely recommend this for any avid puzzle builder." —M

    Promising review: "I absolutely love the mani jetsetter! I am a sucker for mini anything and love how O&J has transformed my favorite products into mini size.

    Promising review: "I sent this to my sister for Mother's Day. She has two very young children, so I didn't want her to have to cook on Mother's Day. They loved it, and the kids really liked the quiche (4 year old and 2 year old). I definitely recommend!!!" —Brittany

    27. Or a Bodum pour-over coffee maker made with heat-resistant borosilicate glass and a permanent filter if she's a little more old-school and doesn't need anything super fancy.
