Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

If any of you are like me, you forget or procrastinate until the very last moment for everything. I love holidays but sometimes I wait until the last few days to get gifts or plan a day out. I also like to give unique, meaningful gifts – the ones that are never expected. So, I’ve created a short list of some last minute, special gift ideas for Mother’s Day.


Chocolate and Wine

Every mom loves chocolate and deserves wine, so why not give her both! I found this on Pinterest and loved the idea.


Erasable Message Board

This one is simple and cheap! Grab a picture frame from the dollar store and then you insert a blank paper and attach a dry eraser marker. You can write any message on it and change it whenever you want!


Mother’s Day in a Jar

Again, grab a huge jar from the dollar store and fill with some fun items like: nail polish, candy, chapstick, etc.

Simple Homemade Orange Chicken

As a mom, anything I can make that is quick, easy and not too unhealthy is a win for me. For when you are craving some orange chicken, this one hits the spot!

You only need 4 simple ingredients:

  • Boneless chicken breast
  • Bbq sauce
  • Orange marmalade
  • Soy sauce

This recipe serves 3-5 people. In one sauce pan, mix 1 cup bbq sauce, 1 cup sweet orange marmalade and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce together and let simmer. 

Then chop chicken breast to desired size and grill. Optional: you can coat with flour and water mixture to have a bit more breaded texture. 

Once all chopped, toss into simmering sauce and let simmer for about 5-10 minutes. 


Once it is done, you can serve as is or with a side of fried rice. 

Let me know if you enjoy this or have another recipe I should try! 😊
