Florida Travel Guide to last-minute gift options for Mom

You forgot it was Mother’s Day and you want to get her more than flowers and a box of chocolates? If you’ve left the gift to the last minute, you still have lots of options, that are reasonable and unique! Check our list below:


Get Mom a gift card from CanvasPop or choose a photo yourself (you can take image from Facebook or Instagram). The printed image will arrive on canvas for Mom to hang on her wall. And best of it is, the moment you pay, you’ll get a gift card via email that you can print and put inside your Mother’s Day card. You did get one of those, right?


Choose Mom’s favorite charity and make a donation in her name. If you’re not sure what it is, make a donation to the micro-loan site, Kiva, where Mom can keep on giving year-round. Mom can choose the person, country and project she wants to extend a loan to, and once its repaid, she can give the same amount all over again.


Tell Mom to relax on the couch and read while you make her a tea. If she’s got a tablet, get her an Amazon or iTunes gift certificate – print the confirmation email out, roll it in a scroll and tie a ribbon around it. If Mom still likes holding paper in her hand, get her a subscription to – you can set the email confirmation to arrive on mothers day, and it will be the kind of gift that reminds her you love her each month when the publication arrives.

Home-cooked meal

Skip the pricey brunch and cook a great meal for your Mom at home.  If you’re not great in the kitchen, boil an egg and toast a piece of bread, cut up some fruit into a dish – it’s the company that matters!
