Last Minute Mother's Day Gifts

Sunday is Mother’s Day, a day to celebrate the wonderful woman who shaped you into the person you are today, so she deserves something extra special on her day. If you’re anything like my boyfriend, you still haven’t gotten your mom her Mother’s Day present yet, but that’s ok! You still have two days. If you haven’t figured out what to get your mom, here are some last-minute gift ideas:

What girl doesn’t love chocolate? Chocolate is a great gift to get your mom that she is sure to enjoy! I would recommend Dan’s Homemade Candies if you want the best chocolate for your mom! They have the best chocolate around! I’m planning on stopping there this weekend to pick my own mom up a box of their delicious chocolate. Stop by one of their three locations to get your mom a gift that she is sure to enjoy. They have two locations in Joliet, one on Plainfield Road and one on Cass Street, and their third location is on Lincoln Highway in Mokena.

Portable Charger

This one is a really practical gift. Busy moms definitely run out of phone battery pretty quickly! Get her a small portable phone charger that can easily fit in her purse and won’t break your bank! This one from Amazon is a great gift! You can get it here.

Every mom needs her cup of coffee to get her busy day started. Get her a cute mug that will start her day off with a smile! Go for a funny one or a sentimental one to show mom just how much she means to you.

Treat your mom to a nice dinner out and you pick up the bill! Places like Texas Roadhouse or Olive Garden are perfect places to take mom. Make sure you make a reservation though because it will be crowded! If you are a little tight on cash, make mom a homemade dinner instead. Look for great dinner recipes on the Encounter Pinterest page!

Picture Frame

Get mom a cute picture frame and put a picture of your family in it for her! Mom’s love a cute frame with their family in it that they can display for everyone to see. You can find lots of cute mom frames on Etsy!

Hopefully these gift ideas can help you get a start to your Mother's Day shopping. Don't forget to tell your mom just how much you appreciate her, especially because without her you wouldn't be here. Happy Mother's Day!
