Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday, May 8, and if you haven't thought about a gift yet, now's the time to start. Whether you want to ship her some chocolate covered strawberries or share some quality time with her in a cooking class, we rounded up a list of gifts that will make it her way just in time for Mother's Day.

Incorporating florals and sweet treats in one, this gift offers the best of both worlds for Mother's Day. Salt & Straw's Flower Power ice cream series includes five decadent flavors, including Jasmine Milk Tea & Chocolate Almond Stracciatella, Rhubarb Crumble with Toasted Anise, and Mathilde's Hibiscus and Coconut Sherbet, and two new flavors, Pistachio Rose Water with Strawberry Mochi and Saffron Honey with Crystalized Flower Petals.

If you're hosting a boozy brunch or small get-together for your mom for Mother's Day this year, this kit is the perfect start. Stocked with The Glenlivet and Absolut Vodka, this cocktail kit includes a dried bouquet arrangement from UrbanStems, which inspired the cocktail flavors of chili honey, lemon and peach.

A mixing bowl set is a must-have for most cooking and baking projects. Add a hint of springtime flare to your mom's kitchen with this set from Great Jones. The light pink design adds just enough color to brighten up her next day of baking or cooking.

Take your mom's cooking to the next level by upgrading her pantry staples. This vinegar kit includes four flavored vinegars that will most likely be unlike any she has tried before. Salad dressings, marinades and more will get an extra boost of flavor with this gift.

If breakfast in bed is your mom's idea of a perfect Mother's Day morning, we've got the perfect gift for you. This portable and propped-up tray comes with an assortment of goodies, including snack-sized muffins, English muffins, cinnamon rolls, scones and more. It's the perfect basket of food for the whole family to enjoy.


For quick and delicious cocktails in seconds, these mixers are great to have around the house. Flavors include Meyer Lemon Club Soda, Tonic Water, Sparkling Grapefruit, Ginger Beer and Sparkling Lemon Lime, so mom will be prepped for multiple cocktails.


A batch of chocolate-covered strawberries are an iconic gift for a reason — they’re the ideal combination of decadent and fruity and always arrive looking beautiful. Pick between strawberries that come with bouquets of flowers, dipped in milk or white chocolate or covered in nuts and chocolate chips.


If you want to surprise your mom with the smell of fresh flowers in her house every day, but don’t want to overwhelm her with actual flowers, this tea is the perfect gift. Tea Forte create a tea blend to perfectly replicate the experience of getting fresh flowers. It’s the perfect gift for the mom who loves waking up or going to bed with a relaxing cup of tea. Plus, the beautiful scarf is a gift she'll be able to use even when the tea runs out.

$19.99 per serving

For the mom who is looking for a break in the kitchen, surprise her with one of Blue Apron’s meal kits fit for Mother’s Day. You can choose from a Truffle & Fontina Quiche with Arugula & Almond Salad for brunch, Pan-Seared Scallops & Lime Butter with Spring Vegetable Rice with Chicken Saltimbocca with Roasted Potatoes, Spinach and Lemon Pan Sauce for dinner or a wine bundle that include Pinot Grigio, Rose and Sauvignon Blanc. If you’re unable to get together in person with your mom this year, this also makes for the perfect virtual activity the two of you can do with each other.


The nine wines in this wine box, which include Malbec from the south of France and a bolder wine from the highest peak in Spain, are not only a great gift due to their quality and taste, but also because of the beautiful box and bottles they come in. If your mom is a red-wine lover, this gift is a no-brainer for her.


Skip the bouquet of flowers this year and give your mom something that will last a little longer. This garden will give mom the ability to grow her own flowers, herbs and vegetables year-round. It’s the perfect gift for the mom with the green thumb who wants to bring her hobby indoors for the winter (or the mom who needs a little help in the gardening category!).

For a sweet treat that is as beautiful as it is delicious, opt for cupcake bouquets to put a small on mom’s face. Plus, since this gift arrives the next day, it’s the perfect solution for last-minute gifting. Pick from a 12-piece or 9-piece flower or rose cupcake bouquet, and send them overnight with a personalized card to your loved one.
