5 fun last minute gifts for Mother’s Day

(Lander, Wyo.) – Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Need a few gift ideas? We’ve got you covered. Check out our 5 ideas below!

# 1: Balloon Cards! 

This is so fun and easy, especially for the little ones. All you need is a balloon and a sharpie or ballpoint pen. Have your children write sweet messages while the balloon is inflated. Then deflate the balloon and place it in a card!

# 2: Flowers, flowers, flowers! 

Instead of getting your mom a bouquet that will last a week – get her one that will last all summer! We have 3 examples from Sweetwater Garden in Riverton! Not sure which one is her favorite? Get her a gift certificate and let her choose!

# 4: Fill a basket with goodies! 

This one is my favorite. Gather a bunch of things she likes and arrange them in a cute basket or bowl. Swing by Special Arrangements in Lander and pick up some lotion or chocolates, make your mom a sweet treat from scratch, or stop by Global Arts and pick up a set of local mugs. The possibilities for this gift are endless!
