As a reminder Mother’s Day, which is always the second Sunday of May, falls on May 12 this year. But with all the stresses of daily life, things can easily slip to the bottom of your to-do list and the next thing you know you’re scrambling to find a gift.

And if you’ve truly left it to the last possible moment, you can send a virtual gift that’ll land in her email inbox in a flash. Phew!

How We Chose the Best Virtual Mother’s Day Gifts

We get it—life is busy and it can be hard to remember every important date—but Mother’s Day is one celebration you don’t want to miss. Left it to the last minute to find a wow-worthy gift? Don’t sweat it. Our goal is to do the bulk of research for you, so you don’t have to spend hours scrolling through online retailers. Here are the steps we took to create this article:

  • We considered a list of criteria when sourcing last minute Mother’s Day gifts, including quality, style and delivery method and shipping costs.
  • To decide which gifts are the best virtual options on the market, we leverage our familiarity with leading brands to make sure items are from reliable manufacturers.
  • We read user reviews to get the low-down on how these products work for moms and focused on items with instant or next-day delivery options. And we typically don’t consider anything with less than an average four-star rating.
