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.

Unique Valentines Day Ideas

Whether you are married, dating or single, here are some ideas for what to do and a few gift ideas as well.

Getting Out

  • Have a bonfire – snuggle up with your loved one and enjoy relaxing together.
  • Sign up for chocolate tasting – better than chocolate in a box.
  • Take a dance class – have fun learning a new dance together. Exciting swing dancing or romantic salsa.
  • Roller skating – really brings out the kid in each of us and you can enjoy the music too.
  • Tandem bike riding – enjoy the cool breeze and the funny moments you’re bound to have trying to ride on one bike

Staying Indoors

  • Plan a themed dinner and movie – it can be any theme to fit your unique relationship
  • Create a scavenger hunt – this could be as simple or elaborate as you would like
  • Have a board game night – pull out your favorite board game and let the games begin
  • Have a nerf gun war – how fun to act like kids again, sneaking around the house
  • Have a spa night – bubble bath, massage, anything else to pamper each other.


Gift Ideas

  • Personalize candy or drinks – make a custom label
  • Map of your love – cut out a heart in a map with the center being where you met, had your first date, or got married
  • Make a flip book – you can draw pictures or actually take pictures of yourself
  • Get cooking – if your loved one enjoys food, make something heart-shaped to eat together (pizza, cake)
  • Message board – you can turn a picture frame into a dry eraser board or get a letter board. You can send each other cute messages each day
  • A five senses gift – see (movie), hear (music, concert tickets), touch (massage oil, lingerie), taste (food, candy), and smell (cologne).

These are all ideas and can be completely customizable to you and your loved one.
