Last-Minute Gifts From Target That Mom Will Love

Somehow we completely skipped April and Mother’s Day is already upon us. Anybody having trouble keeping track of the days lately? I feel like March lasted 3 months and April was just 1 day. I woke up this morning and thought it was Sunday for a good 20 minutes. Newsflash: it’s Monday!! 

Despite being trapped inside with nothing better to do, Mother’s Day seemed to sneak up on us all this year. I guess we just had other things on our mind, ya know, like a pandemic. Plus, with shipping delays from many of the big retailers, you might be out of luck when it comes to receiving gifts on time even if you did plan ahead. 

Target is the answer to your Mother’s Day gift problem! But isn’t Target the answer to every problem, always? The answer is, yes. It definitely is. 

I know firsthand that moms can sometimes be hard to shop for. Mine likes to buy herself whatever she wants (even if it’s right before a holiday), so it can sometimes be hard to find something she will love that she doesn’t already have. Fear not because Target has a huge selection of great last minute gifts that any mom will love, and they’re offering in-store pickup or free shipping if you spend over $35! 

I’ve rounded up some great options for you below that you can still get just in time for Mother’s Day, if you act fast. I might have even picked up a few of these for my own mom, but since she reads this blog, I won’t get into details. You have to wait until Mother’s Day, mom!

Hope you find something great for your mom, and if worst comes to worst, give her a Target gift card. I don’t know any mom who wouldn’t enjoy that. 


1. Stylish Straw Accessories

Mother's Day Gifts - bag

Straw Beaded Tote Handbag – A New Day™ Natural

Target has so many cute straw bags available right now that are perfect for spring and summer, or all year round if you live in Florida like we do. The beading on this one really makes it stand out though, and there is a similar version in pink here. Both on sale for only $27.99! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted to buy one for myself. 

You can pair it with this adorable floppy hat for a breezy summer look. Gotta have mom looking fly when she is able to hit the town again!

2. Spa Facial Roller

Mei Apothecary Mini Jade Facial Roller

This is a must for moms obsessed with aging gracefully. It’s great for practicing facial massage to help with lymphatic drainage, and daily use will keep her skin looking fresh and smooth. It will help de-puff under eyes and tighten everything up. 

I recommend keeping it in the freezer. The ice-cold roller feels amazing on your face in the morning—it’ll wake her right up! It has some other great uses as well like cooling a sunburn, soothing a migraine, or just releasing tension in the face. It’s a simple, handy tool that will help her look and feel great whenever she needs it. It’s an inexpensive gift, at only $9.99, so you can snag her some other great skin care items to go with it. 

Speaking of skincare, she’ll love one of the serums from the new skincare line Versed that everyone is raving about.


It has great reviews and it looks beautiful. So awesome that Target is finally making it easy to find affordable, quality skincare.

3. 2-in-1 Hair Dryer/Styler

Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer

This guy is a game changer. With almost 1,600 great reviews, this brush/blow dryer combo is a must-have for any woman, but especially a busy mom. It will take her from wet mess to sleek queen and will cut some time off her morning routine, which is at the top of every mom’s wish list. Currently priced at $56.99, but you can’t put a price on mom’s time.

4. Coffee Gadgets

Bodum 8 Cup / 34oz Pour Over Coffee Maker

A pour-over coffee maker is a fun gift idea for the mom who is also a coffee connoisseur. This super cool gift is only $20, so you might even want to pair it with a coffee grinder and this affordable electric kettle to complete the set. 

And don’t forget a great bag of beans! Target has a large selection of coffee, but if you can support your local coffee shop by swinging by and picking up a bag of your favorite, that’s even better. 

If you’re looking for an inexpensive gift, a cute mug with a bag of coffee is always a great option. I seem to collect coffee mugs, and Target has about a million cute mugs to choose from.

Love this one!

5. Bird Feeder

7″ Wood Bird Feeder Brown – Smith & Hawken™

This cute little modern bird feeder and some seed are the perfect gift for your mom if she loves sitting outside and bird watching. There is nothing more peaceful than enjoying a nice cup of coffee or glass of wine on the porch while watching the wildlife fly by. And it’s of course a great way to pass the time if she’s unable to leave the house right now. This style is on sale for only $16.99. 

6. Blue Light-Filtering Glasses



ICU Eyewear Screen Vision Blue Light Filtering Rectangle Black Large Glasses

If mom has to stare at a computer all day at work or just spends a lot of time on her ipad, she needs these cute blue light-filtering glasses. Blue light from our screens can cause eye strain and can even confuse our internal clock, making it hard to get to sleep. These will keep mom safe and keep her looking cute, too, for only $19.99.


7. Insulated Drinkware

11oz Double Wall Stainless Steel Vacuum Wine Tumbler with Lid – Room Essentials™

This insulated tumbler is perfect for keeping her pinot cool on a hot summer evening. Every mom needs a great wine tumbler and the pattern of this one is super fun for summer. It’s only $8.99 so you can get her a nice bottle of wine to go with it.

If mom isn’t much of a drinker, you can get her a larger tumbler and pair it with these eco-friendly, reusable straws to her do her part to save the planet.

They come in a variety of colors and the set even includes a tool to clean them. Who knew saving the planet could look this cute?


8. Candles


Glass Jar 3-Wick Candle Cashmere Plum – The Collection By Chesapeake Bay Candle

A tried and true Mother’s Day gift for a reason—every mom loves a great candle (or 10)! Target has a huge variety of beautiful candles with every scent imaginable. Browse through the huge selection for mom’s favorite scent, or pick a few she might love.


9. Books

If mom is a reader, Target has all of the best sellers she’s been wanting to pick up. Whether she loves fiction or something more motivational, they’ve got it all. Get her the latest from her favorite author, or something new that she might love. Books are a great gift for these days when we’re spending so much time at home.

Where the Crawdads Sing – by Delia Owens

book atomic habits

Atomic Habits – by James Clear

And if your mom is a huge Joanna Gaines fan (I think most moms are, right?), her latest cookbook just came out. The recipes sound delish and it will look so nice displayed on her countertop.

10. Tech Accessories

This one has mom’s name all over it.

Kate Spade New York Apple Watch Band

Target is now carrying Kate Spade Apple accessories. The Apple Watch bands are so cute, you will have trouble choosing between all the pretty patterns and colors. These are a little on the pricey side, but mom is definitely worth it!

But if those are a little out of your price range, this tortoise shell AirPods case is a great, less expensive option for the Apple lover in your life.

This Mother’s Day might look a little different, but you can still drop off a thoughtful gift for mom on her day.

Hope this list was helpful and you get mom something great.
