So you’ve suddenly realised Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and you’ve bought a grand total of nothing for your Mummy dearest. Have no fear, there’s still time to get her that perfect gift sent straight to her door, or even her phone.
For the forgetful of you out there, we’ve brought you 12 last-minute Mother’s Day gifts that your mum will definitely appreciate on her special day.
There’s no better gift than music for your mum, this Mother’s Day, and by buying an album from iTunes, you’ll have no worries about it arriving at your door in time. If you know there’s a specific album that your Mum wants, whether it be Sam Smith or Royal Blood, we suggest you buy that. Otherwise, there’s Mum – The Ultimate Mother’s Day Collection available here for £4.99, which comes complete with loads of great artists, from Bruno Mars to Dionne Warwick to Sonny & Cher.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
2) Bread Ahead Baking Course
If your mum has gone mad for Paul Hollywood since the success of Great British Bake Off, she would most likely love a course in bread making. Not only will she get to bake gorgeous bread, she’ll also get a lovely day out at Borough Market, where Bread Ahead is based. Perfect for any foodie.
The Bread Ahead course is available to book here, and costs £75 for a half-day voucher, and £150 for a full day.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
3) Champneys Pamper Mind and Body Spa Day
Your mum needs some relaxation, and so do you (well, you may as well treat yourself as well as your mum!). This Spa Day from Champneys is available at one of their four locations, and includes 25 minutes in the thalassotherapy pool, a choice of massage, facial, aromatherapy wrap or scalp massage, a three course hot and cold buffet lunch (which, from our experience, is delicious), complementary refreshments, including yogurt, granola, mixed berry compote pots, mixed fruit platter, mini muffins, fruit juice, tea and coffee, and full use of the spa facilities.
The spa day costs £74.50-84.50 per person, from Last Minute, depending on which of the four locations you choose. You’ve got your choice of Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Hampshire and Leicestershire.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
4) The Gin Crowd subscription
Is your mum a big lover of gin? She’ll be delighted by a subscription to the alcoholic beverage then! The Gin Crowd delivers three 50ml bottles of gin to your doorstep every month, for just £15 a month. What’s even better is that you can cancel at any time!
You can order your mum all of the gin from The Gin Crowd here.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
5) Food Treats Hamper
You can’t really go wrong with wine and food, especially when it comes in a lovely big hamper, and looks this good! Hamper.com has loads of different food hampers, ranging in price, but we think this one, priced at £53, looks the best.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
6) YPlan events
YPlan is an app MADE for the last-minute decision makers. You can book tickets for Mother’s Day events on Mother’s Day, if you still haven’t made up your mind by then, including comedy shows, all day brunch, a breakfast and Ripley’s museum package, a screening of Four Weddings and a roast, and even tickets to see a West End show, including Jersey Boys and The Lion King!
Unfortunately, at the moment, YPlan is London-based, but if you are a Londoner, or fancy bringing your mum to London for the day, you can download the app on iOS or Android here.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
7) Jo Malone Travel In Style
While this set is called ‘Travel In Style’, we’re pretty sure even non-travelling mums would appreciate it. It is Jo Malone after all! This lime, basil and mandarin scented set includes a candle, soap and bath oil that makes a perfect gift for the mother who just wants a bit of relaxation.
Travel in Style is available from the Jo Malone website for £53, and next day delivery is available for £6, and Saturday delivery for £12.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
8) Netflix subscription
If your mum’s into TV, a Netflix subscription is perfect. There are tons of boxsets she could get into on it, including Orange is the New Black and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and you could even sit down together on Mother’s Day and watch a good chick flick, like Morning Glory.
Netflix is available for £6.99 a month, and you can cancel at anytime.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]

While it is getting warmer out, it’s always lovely to snuggle up on the sofa with a big blanket, and this one by Tweedmill is gorgeous. Order next day delivery by 2pm tomorrow (Friday) for £6.99, and it will be with you by Saturday.
This Tweedmill blanket is available to buy from Urban Outfitters for £75.[/nextpage] [nextpage title=”Next”]
