    34 Last-Minute Mother's Day Gifts You Can Still Get On Amazon

    Still need a Mother's Day gift? We're here to help out our fellow procrastinators.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pretty cookbook by the one and only Joanna Gaines featuring even prettier recipes ranging from hearty dinners to fresh, summer desserts.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this cookbook! I have already made two of the recipes and found the directions to be easy to follow and the food was delicious! Plus, the book itself is gorgeous! I have it displayed on my counter! I have already bought a second book for my mom!" —Engle

    Price: $12.68

    2. A set of tiny lil' owl planters to really show mom ~whooo~ the favorite kid is. Spoiler: It's you.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These owl planters make the most adorable mini succulent arrangements. I love they have drain holes, an absolute must in my book. I've ordered two packages already and will order again." —Online Customer

    Price: $14.80

    3. A jade roller because mom shouldn't have to hit up an expensive spa just to pamper herself — and she should definitely feel pampered!

    Amazon

    Jade rolling can help with eye puffiness, as well as tightening and brightening of your skin. BuzzFeed's Rachel Miller investigated these claims herself to see how they held up, and spoiler — it worked:

    "My immediate reaction was, 'Wait, is this what my face is supposed to look like?!' My eyes were suddenly so prominent in my face — in a good way!! — and everything looked visibly brighter and tighter — again, in a very good way. I suddenly just looked so awake, so healthy, so...Disney princess-like? (A half-black divorced American princess whose name happens to be Rachel, let’s say.) At 6:10 am with no makeup on? When just a couple of minutes ago I did not look that way at all? I was legitimately shocked." —Rachel Miller

    Read her full review on jade rollers.

    Price: $17.47

    4. A hand lettering starter book so she can master a new hobby while improving her already amazing penmanship. Birthday cards from mom are going to be next level.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this book. So easy to follow along and practice. Love that there's a sample for you to trace and space to practice right after. Someone mentioned half the book is blank pages but in reality, it's space to practice and I actually like it. I like to compare my handwriting side by side with the example." —Lourdes

    Price: $20.39 (and don't forget to grab a calligraphy brush pen for $5.05!)

    5. A cold brew filter bottle that honestly has no right to be THIS pretty and cheap. It'll create rich teas and citrus water overnight so she can wake up to absolute deliciousness. It's what she deserves!!!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing is the greatest way to make iced tea I've ever tried! It's super easy to use, and only requires at least six hours to steep. I like giving 24 hours for best flavor." —Robert

    Price: $21.50+ (available in two sizes and three colors)

    6. A Wonder Woman mug because let's be real here, she is one in every sense of the word.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the best gift you could buy for a friend or family member who loves Wonder Woman! The design was flawless — a good showcase of Wonder Woman over the years. It seems like the picture won't fade very much over time. Even the box it comes in feels like a steal! On all sides it has cool phrases and pictures that add to the gift! Recommended for a great gift!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $15.95

    7. A recipe tin that doubles as gorgeous counter decor. The tin comes ready with blank recipes cards that she can fill out with all the family favorites.

    amazon.com / amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm LOVING my little recipe box. It's adorable on the counter and comes with lots of cards and dividers. Good-quality construction; it sits next to the sink and isn't having any problems with exposure to splashes. I already had some other recipe cards that fit perfectly in it too. It's great to have this for your go-to recipes, and you don't want a huge recipe book taking up real estate on your counters." —Us

    Price: $34

    8. A vintage-style makeup brush holder with faux-pearl beads to give her best brushes a home that's just as fabulous as her — and you should absolutely write that on her card, btw.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing looks amazing, feels really sturdy and the included a lot of pearls, so even short brushes can be stored in it. What a beautiful way to keep your brushes at your finger tips!" —Lindsey Sheldon

    Price: $29.49

    9. A One Line A Day journal with space for her to jot down a few sentences every day for five years. Each date lets her record all five entries on the same page, so she can see the changes in her life each year!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This is a perfect remedy for what I understand to be a universal feeling — the desire to journal, but the lack of patience, dedication, or time. But pausing to write one sentence a day? We can all handle that.

    Promising review: "I adore this journal. It allows me to write down daily memories or thoughts and puts my current self in a good mood. I'm excited to run across my old notes as the years go on! I take this with me on travels in a storage bag. There's something special about writing on the plane, in a new city, on a beach, etc. — any time you just feel like you're experiencing a special moment." —Mikayla

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of this journal!

    Price: $12.27 (and see more styles of this journal here)

    10. An assortment pack of 16 (!!!) sheet masks so she can always come home to some good ol' R&R. And with that many masks, there's bound to be an extra or two for you!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my second mask experience and I couldn’t wait to write this review. I love these masks! They are so cooling and left my skin moist and glowing. I woke up this morning after trying the first one last night and noticed a big difference in my skin's texture and overall coloring. Any redness was gone. The few zits that have sprung up over the last few days were dried up and practically gone. Miracle!! #blessedforreal These are so fantastic and the price is mind-blowing. I’m addicted." —Cher

    Price: $10.41 for a pack of 16

    11. A flowy, sheer duster for the mom who knows 👏 her 👏 style 👏. I don't think her basic white tees and denim are ready for this.

    Amazon / amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE! The colors are vibrant and light enough to be cool during the summer and heavy enough to where it doesn't feel cheap. I love the slit it has in the side because it gives it a different look. I am 5'9 and it is right above my knees. For the price I am shocked as to how beautiful they are. I agree with everyone else to buy a size up. The length will not change but can be a bit tighter in the shoulder area." —Andrea

    Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and 29 prints)

    12. A bamboo cutting board in the shape of her favorite state so she can always think of you whenever she preapres food. I mean, I am just assuming her favorite state is the one you reside in... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    totallybamboo.com

    Promising review: "My mom does a lot of entertaining and I purchased this and a small knife set for her for Mother's Day. She LOVES the cutting board and it really looks nice in her small place. Perfect for about three cheeses with crackers for serving, and when she's not entertaining it's a pretty decoration." —Weil

    Price: $17+ (available in 53 shapes)

    13. And in the same state theme, a Homesick soy candle repping her favorite city or state (again, it's definitely yours) so she can be reminded of you everywhere she looks!

    instagram.com

    Price: $30.99 (available in 50+ states, and in select cities here)

    14. A bathtub tray with compartments for all of mom's bath time essentials (in order of importance, I'm guessing): Wine, books, iPad, phone, snacks, and soap.

    amazon.com

    The side trays are adjustable to fit a variety of tub sizes.

    Promising review: "Perfect gift for the bath lover, and great way to make a bath look more thoughtful and designed even when not in use. Our tub is deep and has handles that this tray fits perfectly on. The ability to slide it apart makes it easy to customize to the right width. When not in use the trays and holders are a perfect place to store bath accessories (bubble bath, candles, etc.) that keep the tub area from looking like a hoarders pile. The holder fits an iPad 12" in the vertical position, but not really horizontally, that's tough if you wanted to watch a show. It's possible to prop it up though using the grooves in the tray so overall this does the trick. It comes with removable soap/wine trays that can be reconfigured or removed entirely if your tub is not as wide." —C McA

    Price: $44.97

    15. A fleece blanket because a mom can never — and I repeat, NEVER — have too many blankets. Truly, my mom is always cold and a cute throw never disappoints.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this blanket as a gift. It comes vacuum packed, so I took it out of the vacuum bag and wrapped it. The blanket comes wrapped in a beautiful bow and makes a perfect present. Not to mention that it is SO soft. I think I will buy another one to keep for myself!" —M St. Peter

    Price: $32.99 (available in three colors)

    16. A Corkcicle champagne flute available in tons of pretty, magical colors (really, there's one color called "unicorn") that'll keep her bubbly ~cool~, and make you the ~coolest~ sibling yet.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect shape and size. Keeps my bubbly ice cold until the last drop. Love the pretty colors. Ordered one and had to go back and order a second one. I ordered two different (highly rated) types initially and Corkcicle was definitely the best!" —Lori M.

    Price: $18.95+ (available in eight colors, and a wine glass and travel mug version)

    17. A multi-pack of silky scarves so she can glam up her outfit or change the look of her handbag. After all, life needs more versatile accessories, gosh darn it!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "What's not to like? I really love that they are packaged individually and that's perfect for gift giving. They looked exactly as shown online and are silky and colorful. They look great as a purse accessory and also on the neck. Very fabulous. Great price for great product." —PinkSugar

    Price: $15+ for a set of 12 (available in two color/print sets)

    18. A pair of faux-fur slides so she can kick off her shoes at the end of a long day and slip into these warm cocoons. I know parents aren't supposed to pick favorites, but these just might tip you over to best kid ever (at least for the day).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I feel a little weird for getting so excited over a pair of slippers but I have to say these are the best slippers I've owned. They are beautiful, luxurious and best of all, super soft and comfortable. These have not only held up perfectly, but they have maintained their cushion and still look fabulous. Recently, I even spilled soup on them while cooking and popped them into the washer and dryer and they came out PERFECTLY. They literally look and feel almost like new. Amazing. Holy grail of slippers! :)" —MJLA

    Price: $17.95 (available in sizes 5-12 and three colors)

    19. A family cookbook that'll keep her best passed-down traditions in one place. This book comes with templates for over 80 recipes and places to add personalized photos.

    Amazon

    It's like a scrapbook met a cookbook and made this! It's so cute, and I literally just bought it for my stepmom since she loves to cook.

    Promising review: "Gave this to my lovely wife for her birthday. She had been looking for a cookbook to write down recipes she loved or invented. The quality of this book and slipcover are such that someday our children or grandchildren will inherit the family recipes. Neat layout, with options that other books don't have." —Bladesmith

    Price: $29.53+ (available in two colors and four other styles)

    20. A letter board so mom can ALWAYS display her funniest, most encouraging phrases for the family to see. It's her world, people! We're just livin' in it.

    amazon.com / amazon.com

    Comes with 690+ letters, numbers, and characters, plus a bonus sorting tray!

    Promising review: "I got this mainly for all the letters. I love how it comes with so many and even has a box to place them in. The packaging of this product was sublime, made me feel like I was opening a cool subscription box. This would be a cool gift for someone and has everything you’d need to start a good letter board. Would definitely recommend this." —Karen B.

    Price: $23.95 (available in two sizes and five colors)

    21. A dainty letter necklace (with dare I say, YOUR initial?!) so she always has a go-to, simplistic piece of jewelry to rely on — plus a little reminder of you, and that's the important part!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I’m super excited about this necklace! I love the color, I love how dainty the chain is, and how it feels like it is of good quality! It came with a super soft little bag to store it in which I really appreciate! I will definitely order more as gifts!!" —Gina

    Price: $12.95 (available in 26 letters)

    22. A coloring book that *softly* screams, Color me and let all your worries slip away! because nothing really beats the gift of relaxation.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I would say this is by far the highest quality coloring book I have. I received it as a Christmas gift last year. The paper is amazing. It's heavy weight and holds markers and colored pencil well. I would not recommend using a water pen or any extra water for blending on this paper. It seems like the extra water makes the paper bleed. If I only use the markers, the paper is fine with no bleeding. My tools I use: Prismacolor color pencils and Tombow markers." —Cameala Freed

    Price: $13.30

    23. A set of ceramic canisters with teensy spoons for the mom who loves an organized kitchen just as much as she loves a pretty one. Really! These are so cute, she'll absolutely want to leave 'em out.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "There's nothing I do not like about this product. I redid my kitchen with vintage '50s turquoise and this canister set was perfect for what I wanted. The convenience of having spoons attached to the side is a nice added touch, along with the silicone seal and the old time clasp which seals in the flavor for my coffee and teas." —Della J. Bryant

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $31.95+ (available in four colors).

    24. A wine bottle and glass rack guaranteed to become her new favorite wall addition...sorry in advance to your 2003 beach family portrait.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I recently bought this as a birthday/home gift for my son and he and his wife loved it. It was sturdy and didn't have that cheap look about it. It was a nice piece for their decor and a great idea for folks who love to drink wine. It's handy for guests and a nice conversation piece." —Kristi Bernard

    Price: $24.99

    25. And! A wine aerator that'll make your mom's bottles — even the cheaper ones — taste way better. Plus, she'll just feel so fancy whippin' out her aerator and pouring herself a glass like the royalty she is!

    amazon.com / amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never understood the point of aerating wine, but this tool makes a difference. When my sister bought a product like this and had me try the wine I couldn't tell the difference at all. I decided to give it another try and poured two glasses of wine, one with aeration and one without, swapped the cups around so I didn't know which was which, and after tasting both there was a clear difference in the quality. Even my boyfriend, who isn't much of a wine drinker, noticed the difference. I'm not sure what exactly it is, but this aerator basically makes any wine smooth and flavorful." —KP

    Price: $14.50+ (available in black and silver)

    26. A lil' essential oil diffuser and humidifier for combatting dry and flaky skin — or most importantly, for making mom feel like her bathroom is actually a fancy spa.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I AM IN LOVE! I purchased this on a whim and I couldn't be happier with my purchase....I actually plan on getting these as Christmas gifts, which speaks very highly of the product because at full price it isn't that cheap, although for what you get, it is a bargain. I thought judging by the size of it that it would not really be able to push that much of the aroma throughout the room, but pleasantly, I was wrong. I put a few essential oils in it and run it on the 6 hour setting, and it just fills your room with whatever scent your essential oils have." —beng2016

    Read BuzzFeed's full write-up on this diffuser.

    Price: $29.99+ (available in three finishes; and don't forget to grab them a set of essential oils for $9.99)

    27. And! A cushy bath pillow that'll make her bath time even *more* relaxing, and she DESERVES that! 👏

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This bath pillow is wonderful! It is extremely comfortable and the best pillow I have ever tried. It looks as though it would attach easily to any tub. My tub is curved, and there was no problem with it conforming to my tub. It stays put with no slippage. The suction cups hold very well. I recommend removing it an placing it on the side of the tub to air dry so to prevent any mold from building up behind it. I highly recommend this bath pillow, it is the best I have tried, you will not be disappointed." —Christina

    Price: $19.99

    28. A jewelry box to keep her best treasures — yes, like the macaroni necklace you made years ago — nice, safe, and organized.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It's really nice quality. I bought one for myself just out of necessity, but it's such a lovely item to receive! It came wrapped in a little sleeve/box type thing, all in a nice color. It's extremely giftable. I got one in the light blue, and it's a really nice color — very powdery and pretty. I wouldn't have thought it's a pretty cheap item off Amazon. I was so impressed with it that I bought one as a Christmas gift for my future mother in law as well." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $26.99+ (available in four colors)

    29. And for her everyday pieces, a sleek jewelry stand that'll display her best jewelry and give her quick access when she needs it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This stand is just gorgeous and has every feature that I could ever ask for in a jewelry stand. It is both elegant and minimal, looks like a piece of art. It is taller than your average necklace stand so I could hang all my long necklaces and it feels sturdy — it does not topple over with the weight of the jewelry. So, if you are in need of a really cool jewelry stand I'd say consider this one. Five stars :)" —ALI SOYLU

    Price: $20.65+ (available in two styles)

    30. An empowering book — filled with GORGEOUS illustrations of 50 legendary goddesses and a brief description of why they are so extraordinary — to give to the extraordinary woman in your life: Your mom. *Wipes tear.*

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Ann always smashes it with her illustrations. This book is packed with heart and soul. It's perfect if you are looking for a coffee table book with summarized information on goddesses from different areas of the world. It even gives you tips on channeling each goddess; I think that is my favorite detail. Incredible follow up to Bad Girls. She's a great artist to look up to." —Cherie Adan

    Price: $12.95

    31. A memory foam seat cushion for the practical mom, because sometimes the best gift is the gift of comfort. And hey, we all do a lot of sitting so she can use this is in the car, at her desk, or even at home!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought two. One for me, and one for my 87-year-old father. I think mine is great. My father said he doesn't think about his much, because he forgets he's sitting on it. Translated from old man speak, that means he LOVES it! Dad spends hours a day, sitting on a hard wooden dining room chair, watching all of the TV judge shows, news shows, financial reports, and anything else that could cause an old man to have a sore ass. Since I got this chair pad for him, he's actually cut back on his political rants!" —PapaBear

    Price: $29.95

    32. A cheese board complete with knives, serving forks, wine accessories and everything she needs to create an Insta-worthy charcuterie board — which she will, considering it's mom, and what CAN'T she do? Nothing...obviously.

    Amazon

    This 19-piece board set includes cheese knives, serving forks, cheese markers with a pencil, wine opener, bottle ring, and wine pourer/stopper.

    Promising review: "I am so pleased with my cheese set. It is a perfect size for a party or for just movie night. It has a secret tray that is magnetic to hold all the serving pieces. The magnets really hold the drawer closed. Very clever. It comes with four cheese markers that you can write on with dry erase marker (impressed how thick they are). I’m keeping this. I think I’m going to change my 'go to' housewarming gift from a bottle of wine to this. It is a great piece. Even the packaging is suitable for gift giving." —SMM9708

    Price: $46.66

    33. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite so she can curl up wherever and read all of her favorite books while time slowly disappears into the background.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought the new Paperwhite for my mom for Christmas. The screen is every bit as nice as the one on my Oasis. The new Paperwhite is a really great value and now it's waterproof to boot. I know people have an ongoing romance affair with traditional paper bound books, but after switching to an e-reader, I won't go back. Having a built-in light and the added benefit of being able to adjust the font type/size is just too much of a bonus to me. If you want a good gift for a book reader, you can't go wrong with a Kindle." —yeahOK

    Price: $129+ (available in black and white)

    34. And lastly, a CouchCoaster — aka mom's new way to ensure she NEVER has to get off of the couch again. It's now up to you to bring her what she needs. Those are the rules.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This drink holder fits perfectly around the wide arm of my recliner, and it stays in place. It holds whatever size of cups or glassware I have placed in it, without tipping or spilling any of the liquid contents — even on those few occasions when I have accidentally knocked against the cup or holder with an errant arm. At least for me, this product works well and it looks good on my recliner. I find it safe and easy to use, and it does the intended job." —Beartrap88

    Price: $25 (available in four colors)

    Your mom when your siblings ask her if you're her favorite...

    E!
