Mother’s Day is one of the biggest holidays of the year. In the event that you’ve been busy tending to family life or just plain forgot, listed are 10 ideas that make great last minute gifts for Mom.

1. Gift Cards

Buying a gift card from your Mom’s favorite local restaurant or spa is an awesome way to support small businesses and treat her to something she will enjoy.

2. Commissioned Art

If your Mom is a fan of art, try purchasing a commissioned piece from her favorite art vendor. It’s a cool and unique way to get her something that she’ll keep forever.

3. All Things Marketplace

For a great collection of gift ideas, I suggest visiting the All Things Detroit Marketplace. This is another way to support local entrepreneurs and shop for unique gifts.

4. Create a Virtual Slideshow

Taking a stroll down memory lane is something your Mom will love. Put those awkward childhood photos to use and create a virtual slideshow with Motionden.

5. Host a Digital Dinner

You can still make memories in the kitchen even if you can’t physically be with family. This weekend, host a video chat where you and Mom try out a new, or family recipe.

6. Online Yoga Class

Help Mom find inner peace with a personal yoga class from Yoganic Flow. The online one-on-one session can be done from home and classes start at just $30.

7. Send an E-Card

Are you rushing to the store in search of a warm and fuzzy Mother’s Day card? Save yourself some time by sending an e-card instead. They can be personalized and sent on the day and time you choose.

8. Book a Virtual Experience

Airbnb is catering to those who love to travel with its virtual experiences. Enjoy a jazzy cocktail hour in London and other events with Mom from the comfort of your own home.

9. Donate to Charity

Some mothers want for nothing and would prefer that you put your money to better use. Take the money you would spend on a material item and make a donation to your favorite nonprofit.

10. Enjoy Quality Time

After all your shopping is done, don’t forget about the one gift that any Mom would enjoy – your time. Sit and talk about the good old days, color, and just let her know how much you love and appreciate her.
