Grab those last minute Mother’s Day gifts online
You can find flowers online starting at about thirty dollars. Proflowers.com has a few options. Order by Saturday to arrive in time for Mother’s Day, but be warned, you are going to face extra shipping charges.
By the time you add express and Saturday delivery charges, a vase, and taxes; a thirty dollar bouquet will probably end up costing you more like eighty dollars. If you want to get more creative and spend less, here are some other ideas.
Buy a jump drive, you can find one with ample storage for under thirty dollars at Amazon.com. Download mom’s favorite novel or magazines onto the drive to make it personal. Books.Google.com has some interesting reading choices.
Take breakfast in bed to a whole new level. AllRecipes.com offers recipes categorized by cooking skill level. Print out some of mom’s favorite dishes, bind the pages into a book, add a fancy cover, and serve it on a platter with her breakfast.
You can never fail with a gift certificate to her favorite restaurant or store, and most will be available online. If you are not sure which store to choose, log on to GiftCertificates.com. They offer what’s called a “super certificate”. With this card, your mom can make the choice from more than 200 merchants. The certificate never expires and will be e-mailed to mom immediately.
Another last-minute gift idea is to get mom a subscription to her favorite magazine. Swing by the grocery store and pick up a current issue so you have something to give her Sunday. Tell her the mailman will deliver the rest. You can get a year’s worth of subscriptions to most magazines for around fifteen dollars.
