1. This scented candle set for moms who need a self-care day
Every mother needs to take a day to herself from time to time, and this scented candle gift set will help her do just that. Once $29.99 and on sale for $19.99, this pick is further reduced to $18.99 when you check the coupon below the price. There are four scents in this set (lavender, spring, lemon and fig) and each soy wax candle comes in a colorful holder of its own. It also boasts more than 9,200 Amazon shopper reviews, with buyers complimenting the heady scents and long-lasting burn on each candle, which the company claims is about 75 hours. With Prime or overnight shipping, these candles can be blissing your mom out by Sunday.
2. This colorful bouquet of flowers
UrbanStems is offering a major discount on its customer-loved florals for USA Today and Reviewed readers. With coupon code USATODAY20, you can take 20% off your order, so mom can have a bright bouquet of flowers just in time for the holiday. We've tested this service and loved the lush blooms on our delivered bouquet. We also noted that the floral arrangement was just as big as it appeared on the site (a rarity in the flower business). You'll want to get your orders in today though: The brand is quickly selling out of its available delivery slots for Mother's Day!
3. This timeless piece of jewelry
This timeless Coach horse and carriage necklace, once $118, is now on sale for $41.30, saving you a massive $76.70. This brass neckpiece features the Coach logo in the form of a detailed horse and carriage. Coach Outlet shoppers adored the double gold-colored chain on this pick, praising its understated luxury. Those on a time crunch might prefer to point mom in the direction of this piece after picking up an e-gift card at the site for her, which can be sent instantly, since the site's guaranteed Mother's Day shipping has expired. If you do choose to have it belatedly delivered, however, one buyer noted that it doesn't come boxed, so you may want to purchase a separate gift box before handing it over to your favorite mother figure.
4. This internet-famous all-in-one pan
You’ve probably seen the Always Pan, which is designed to replace eight different pieces of cookware, pop up in your Instagram feed from time to time for its miraculously versatile cooking capabilities. Right now, you can make mom's life easier by picking one up for $30 off when you enter coupon code GOODTASTE30 at checkout, reducing its price from $145 to $115. In testing, we loved the lightweight and top-notch performance of this cult-favorite pick, which was able to perfectly deep fry a batch of chicken, stir-fry veggies, roast peanuts and more. We were also fans of the included metal basket, which made it easier to steam food. There’s seven different colors to choose from, so you can even pick one that will match your favorite matriarch's taste. While you can buy the pan outright if you don't mind rolling the dice on the arrival date, we recommend having mom pick hers up with a gift card, since you can choose when your recipient is notified that she has a present waiting
5. A robot vacuum that will make cleaning a breeze
If you really want to splurge on a gift for mom, the iRobot Roomba i7+ is the best robot vacuum we've ever tested, and it's now on sale from its usual $799.99 at $599, saving you $201. We loved its included self-emptying base, which will ensure your mother won't have to touch the dirt that's being swept off her floors. It also has powerful dust-suction capabilities that managed to pick up about 10.5 grams of debris per run in our tests. Your tech-savvy matriarch can even pair this appliance to Google or Alexa Home or easily set cleaning cycles, all completely hands-free. Make sure to order as soon as possible though: The fastest delivery option is just skirting the May 9 delivery date, and the clock is ticking.
6. This adorable Disney tote
Is mom a Disney fan? Then this is the gift for her. This Disney x Kate Spade New York Minnie Mouse tote, which once retailed at $379, is now down to $209, saving you $170. The front of this must-have purse features a two-toned design that features Minnie Mouse applying bright red lipstick in the mirror. The back, meanwhile, is plastered with pink-and-red cartoon lip prints. It's got a 5-star rating from more than 70 Kate Spade shoppers, with many praising this tote for its roomy center compartment (it’s wide enough for you to store your 13-inch laptop, keys and your smartphone!) and high-quality construction. While regular shipping is free, you can select expedited two-day shipping ($15) or next-day delivery ($25) when you place your order to make sure it's there to put a smile on her face come Sunday. You can also opt for an e-gift card if you don't want to risk it.
7. This air fryer for delicious meals
We awarded the Cosori air fryer max XL with the honor of being our best-valued air fryer pick, since this top-rated kitchen gadget held 2 pounds of crinkle-cut fries and delivered them "well-browned and crispy" during our tests. It’s also currently seeing a discount of $20, falling from $119 to $99.98 if you click the coupon below the product's price. We liked its digital controls and useful preset settings, which will be great if your mother figure is the type to set it and forget it. The inner basket was somewhat difficult to remove, but that was our only qualm with this appliance. For its affordable price, large capacity and even crispy cooking, it makes for a useful gift—and according to Amazon, could arrive on her doorstep before Mother's Day if you choose overnight delivery.
8. A printed tee she can wear all day long
Macy's is having a major Mother Day sale right now, and if you spend more than $25 (and are willing to shell out an extra $5), the brand guarantees same-day delivery on select items, so mom will receive her gift in time. If you've got a Macy's near you, you can also choose to pick up your order by 3 p.m. on May 9. One of our favorites from this sale is the JM Collection printed t-shirt, which is down from $34.50 to $24.99, and gets further reduced to just $18.74 with coupon code MOM in all three shades. More than 300 Macy's customers loved that they could dress this tee up or down, making it the perfect day-to-night top. They also liked the rayon/spandex material, which felt extremely comfortable on their skin. If your mom is looking to expand her spring wardrobe, this is a gift you should consider.
9. A subscription service for all her favorite hobbies
MasterClass is a popular e-learning platform that will allow mom to take a series of video lectures from celebrity experts, such as chef Gordan Ramsay, actress Natalie Portman and more. What's more, you can currently snag two annual memberships, regularly priced at $360, for the price of one ($180). Our Editor-In-Chief, David Kender, tested this service and loved that each class was informative and motivational. As David noted, there was nothing "cookie-cutter" about these videos and the production value of each online lesson was outstanding. The only downside? Mom can't interact with the star instructors. After each lesson, however, she'll receive an online PDF covering major points from the lecture and offering further study options. If mom is looking to brush up on her skills or learn new ones, you can't go wrong with this educational pick—especially if it means more time spent together.
10. These Yummy gift baskets from Harry & David
If you can’t be with your mom on Sunday, sending her a delectable gift basket in your stead is a great option. You can snag major savings on select delicious treats that will arrive on time at Harry & David right now, ranging from incredible chocolates and truffles to boxes filled with wine, fruits and more. Right now, you can save on this top-rated dessert truffles box, which is typically priced at $39.99 but is currently on sale for $29.99—a huge steal considering the jaw-dropping array of milk chocolate, strawberry milkshake and dark chocolate truffles inside. You'll have to send it as a smart gift, though—an e-delivery method that will allow you to send an online notification to mom and allow her to select her own gift for delivery.
11. These awesome guided journals
A guided journal is the gift that keeps on giving. You can head to Amazon to snag books such as Mom, I Want to Hear Your Story: A Mother’s Guided Journal to Share Her Life & Her Love, once $22.95, now $18.24, and 100 Questions for Mom: A Journal to Inspire Reflection and Connection, normally $12.99 and currently on sale for $11.69. Interactive books like these provide thought-provoking conversation and journal prompts, allowing you and your maternal figure to bond over her fondest memories. Best of all, because each entry will be written down, you can pass this keepsake along to your own kids, grandkids and so on. As long as you complete your order today and choose expedited delivery checkout, these journals will be on track to arrive by the holiday.
