Like most holidays, Mother’s Day tends to sneak up on us. It’s not that we don’t want to shop for the mamas in our lives, but it can definitely come down to the wire. Now that we’re four days out, the clock is ticking to find something that will send our gratitude her way. But don’t worry, this guide to last-minute Mother’s Day gifts should put your mind at ease—because it’s never too late to show your mom you’re thinking of her.

Some people are natural gift-givers. They find the most meaningful items for every occasion and never show up empty-handed. For those of you who fall into this category, more power to you! It takes a special level of dedication to consistently select the perfect gift. Then there are the non gift-givers, or those of us who express love in other ways. This might look like cooking a meal for someone we love, taking something off their plate when they’re overwhelmed, or putting into words how much they mean to us. Rest assured—these acts are gifts in and of themselves. And while they may not be presents, per se, they definitely convey messages of love.

But for anyone looking to find the perfect physical present this year, look no further. These 15 last-minute Mother’s Day gifts are as easy to buy as they are joyful to give. So with a little time left before the big day, scroll on to find a heartwarming gift that’ll put a smile on mom’s face.

Boy Smells Gardener Scented Candle

Can you ever have enough candles? IMO—absolutely not. To me, candles are like perfumes. Their scents are personal and used for different occasions. With this candle, you’ll experience wafts of “citrus groves and tomato gardens with the scent of flora still clinging to the vine.” Sounds divine.
