If you’re just now reading this post, you’ve definitely waited until the last minute to get your beautiful mom a gift. You know it’s too late to order anything online, but you have no time to make anything so now you’re desperate. That’s okay, we’re not judging you (some of us are in the same boat). Here are some last minute gifts that you can get at your nearest Target that will still make your mom happy.
- For the Chocolatier
If your mom is a little more traditional and loves receiving chocolate as a part of her gift, there’s no better spot to find a wide range of delicious chocolate than the Target candy aisle. From Ghirardelli’s mouth-watering chocolate squares to the chocolate-covered fruit from Brookside or the classic Hershey’s delectable kisses, there are plenty of options that will satisfy her chocolate craving.
- For the Aroma-Therapy Lover
If your mom loves to light candles or melt her candle wax, Target offers a large selection of candles and wax-melts without the overwhelming and potent smells of other candle stores. You can find the classic Yankee Candle or Glade Candle, but also Chesapeake Bay Candle, Signature Soy, and many more.
- For the Journaler
If your mom loves to write or draw, pick up a journal from Target! They have a variety of designs, pages, size, and even journals with prompts! No matter what type of journaling she likes to do, there’s something for every kind of mom!
- For the Gamer
If your mom is competitive and is determined to win every board game during family night, browse the board game aisle at Target. They have the classic games like Monopoly, Uno, Jenga, and Life, in addition to the newer trending games like Exploding Kittens, Catan, Game of Things, and Code Names.
- For the Reader
If your mom loves to read but bookstores are a bit overwhelming, lucky for you, Target has aisles devoted to books, including novels, self-help, crafts, biographies, fitness, and much more. Picking out a book is a more personal touch because your mom will know you picked something you thought she’d enjoy with your own two hands. Can’t compete with that.
- For the Coffee Addict
Does your mom always has a coffee in hand? If you have the funds, you could invest in a fancy programmable coffee maker that will make her day smoother. You could also go for something simpler like coffee grounds from Starbucks, Peet’s, Archer Farms, or Intelligentsia! If she already has a coffee maker, buying her favorite coffee grounds is an easy and thoughtful alternative. Does she already has both? Get her a mug! You can never have too many mugs and Target offers a wide selection. If your mom is too busy to make her own coffee and needs her daily Starbucks, grab her a Starbucks gift card! No one can say no to that.
- For the Cook
If your mom spends half her time in the kitchen, a cookbook may be the way to go. Included in Target’s book selection, you can find various cookbooks that are to her liking. From themed cookbooks (Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Tasty) to specialized books about frozen desserts or vegan food. You can even try celebrity recipes by Bobby Flay, Martha Stewart, or even Oprah! There’s bound to be one that is fitting to your mom’s taste buds.
- For the Mom Who Has Everything
If your mom has everything she wants and needs, but you know she likes to spend money on something, a gift card to her favorite place is just as meaningful. You can buy gift cards for various restaurants, movies theaters, subscriptions, travel, and so much more. Each Target may vary a little, but if they don’t have what you’re looking for, you could always get a gift card to Target.
- For the TV and Movie Lover
If you mom lives for movies and TV shows, Target has a magnificent selection to choose from. No matter what genre she likes best or what decade the movie is from, Target probably has it. With so many DVD and Blu-ray options, you’ll probably end up buying a few for yourself too.
- For the Decorator
If your mom loves to decorate her home and things are constantly getting updated all around, take a look into Target’s home decor sections. They have options for every style, every room, and every budget. You could get something as small as a plant or as big a new dining room table. It’s all about what you’re confident your mom will love.
So if you haven’t gotten your giver of life a present yet, there’s no need to fret. Just drop by your local Target to pick up some of her favorite things! Put some thoughtfulness into it and your mom won’t even know it was a last minute thing! Don’t forget to pair it with a card…moms love cards.
