Even if we have the best intentions, Mother’s Day sometimes creeps up on us and we drop the ball finding mom the ideal gift. But last minute (okay, maybe belated) gifting doesn’t mean your back is up against the wall. Instead of scrambling together yet another bouquet of flowers, show mom you care with a more personal, less cookie cutter gift. Not sure where to start? Pair one of the unexpected gifts in the slideshow ahead with a handwritten note, and you might even forget you found it last minute.
