Did you forget about Mother’s Day this year? Were you stuck under something heavy or perhaps out of the country (or visiting Mars)? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered…even if it wasn’t you who forgot, but rather your significant other…or your littles.

Here are our picks for 11 of the best last-minute gifts that mom will absolutely love this year (and she’ll never know you forgot…unless she’s reading this article over your shoulder!)

For the techie mom:


Mom needs a new tablet…if only because her kids have stolen hers. So why not get her one that multi-tasks with ease…? The newest iPad puts incredible power that leaps past most portable PCs at her fingertips. It makes even complex work as natural as touching, swiping or writing with a pencil.

iPad Pro, starts at $800. Available at Apple. 

For the tea-drinking mom:


Just what every tea lover needs—some scrumptious tea and it’s very own glass storage jar. Perfect for keeping tea fresh-as-a-daisy and mom’s kitchen cupboards nice and neat! Our personal favourite flavour happens to be Licorice and Peppermint but you do you (or let mom do mom).

Tea and Jar Bundle, $25. Available at Teapigs.


For the foodie mom:


Mom can create healthy, homemade meals in minutes with the new Philips Airfryer. Using new, unique TurboStar technology, the Philips Airfryer fries, bakes, roasts and grills with little to no oil, making it a perfect solution for fast, tasty and healthy meals and snacks.

Philips Airfryer, $330. Available at The Bay

For the mom who wants (needs!) a pampering:


Let mom indulge in a first-class spa experience at Spa Zen in the Executive Hotel Cosmopolitan downtown Toronto. $105 (reg. $164) gets mom a 50-minute relaxation massage, 45-minute custom manicure and 15-minute energizing head and scalp massage plus a glass of bubbly.  She will also have access to lockers, showers, robes, slippers and the Jacuzzi.

With its spacious silhouette and super-sleek craftsmanship, this LuLu Lemon tote is an essential and will allow mom to sail through a workday, a workout, and a night on the town.

For the mom who loves wine:


South African winery, Inception, has some incredibly delicious wines that are perfect for the spring season – with light and fruity notes in both the Irresistible White and Deep Layered Red varietals, a glass of either will transform any occasion into a celebration of warmer weather. Beyond their seasonal appeal, Inception’s varietals are extremely affordable and beautifully designed (there’s an actual Queen on the label!), making them a staple for Mother’s Day.

Inception Wines, $14.10. Available at LCBO.


For the mom who deserves to indulge:


There’s no greater gift than a luxurious escape from the everyday. This cheery gift turns every shower into a refreshing oasis with tropical goodies like Yuzu And Cocoa Shower Cream, Sunrise Soap and Passion Fruit Lip Balm.
