Your Last Minute Mother's Day Gift Guide For The Stylish Mom
Time may be running out, but we're here to provide some help in the gift-giving department! We agree that it may be challenging to think of what to give your mom this time of year; because how can a single item convey how much she means to you?
We'd like to take the pressure off by saying we're pretty sure she would appreciate whatever it is you give her because it really is in the thought, and moms' hearts melt at the mere thought of her children giving back, and showing their love and appreciation.
If you're still on the lookout for a material gift though, this last minute gift guide aims to help you narrow down the gazillion choices out there in the mall, so you can look for the ones that would really be useful, and would stand the test of time. Ahead, our picks for great Mother's Day presents any mom would enjoy:
A Fun Pair of Slides
Let her feet take a break from heels and let her enjoy a flirty, fun pair of slides that are actually a great option for parties and dinners. She won't sacrifice style, but will actually up her fashion points a ton with this style!

A Handbag with a Bright Pop of Color
Let her brown or black handbag take a rest in the closet and let her bust out the color with a quality leather bag like this. The shape of this bag is current yet doesn't sacrifice ulility, and can fit a ton of things every mom needs.

A Quality Timepiece
If you're feeling generous and have the budget to spare, a quality timepiece is always a great idea for a gift. You can even share the cost with your dad and siblings, so that your mom receives a gift that spans years, and will actually upgrade her closet in more ways than one. Whether she's a metal or leather strap type of woman, whatever it is—make sure it's a classic-looking one.

Jewelry with a Personal Meaning
Jewelry is always a great gift, but when there's meaning behind it, the better it becomes. Initial pendants or lockets are other great options, but we love this Mother and Child pendant by Jewelmer made with brilliant diamonds and golden South Sea Pearls. It's the ultimate symbol of her unconditional love and care, one that she can carry with her forever.

As Jessica Kienle-Maxwell, modern business woman and mother of one, shares, “My mother raised us with the notion that no dream is too big for us, and that if we worked hard enough we can achieve anything. As a parent, you need to be a strong role model yourself as you are your children’s best example. The best thing about being a mom is the love you feel for this little human being. It’s waking up every day and seeing that little face smiling back at you.”
Classy, Utilitarian Shoes
Every mom has her go-to shoes for days that are just filled to the brim with activity! Rather than flip-flops or rubber slides, these penny loafers are a classic style that come in a flattering shade of rose, perfect for all her busy days to come.

A Summer Tunic
Tunics or Kaftans are great wardrobe options especially for these days when the heat just won't let up. Heading out of town or to the beach, let your mom do it in style with a breathable, effortless piece like this dress. Just a straw bag and some espadrilles, and she's ready to go!

A Chic Lunchbox
Is your mom the grab and go type? If she loves having her meals on-the-go, a cool, chic lunchbox like this is a great pick to ensure her food isn't placed in random paper bags or eco bags. She needs a sturdy one that avoids spills, and keeps food either hot or cold, whenever she needs it.

A Sturdy and Secure yet Chic Travel Bag
When it comes to trusty travel bags that look good, we love Pacsafe. It's the trusted brand for making sure your vacations are worry-free, while doing it in style. This bag is big enough to handle travel essentials and then some, with its original CitySafe CX technology that keeps belongings safe!

A Reliable Travel Pillow
No one fancies a stiff neck when traveling. Save your mom from the horror of not having a pillow during her trips with this memory foam neck pillow. It's a 360-degree supporting neck pillow that allows the head to rest whichever way it pleases. Genius, right?
Uno Neck Pillow, Urbanize
Your mom may love her duster dresses, but it won't hurt to give her a chic pair of pajamas for when she sleeps or lounges around at home (or at staycations at your favorite hotel)! We love these short pajamas by Uniqo, a breathable, easy-fit pair she can take with her anywhere!
