We all want give our moms the best on Mother’s Day, but sometimes life intervenes. But it’s not too late, procrastinators! Here are some choices for an eleventh-hour gift she’s bound to enjoy.
Order the Nordstrom Lingerie Moonlight Pajamas ($65) online and pop into any Nordstrom location for a super-fast pickup. The local company’s cozy pajamas, designed with chic menswear-inspired piping details, comes in a super-soft fabric that’s perfect for lounging around on a lazy Sunday.
Forget to make a brunch reservation? Head to South Lake Union for a Seattle Ferry Service Sunday Ice Cream Cruise ($3–$12 per person, pay on board with cash or check only; more details at seattleferryservice.com). On board, you and Mom will set sail, see the sights and learn some entertaining city history — all while enjoying ice cream!
If you can’t bring Mom to breakfast, bring breakfast to Mom! Swing by one of Bakery Nouveau’s three locations for a Half Dozen Breakfast Pastries (starting at $18). Choose a combo of fresh pastries — from apple danishes to ham and cheese croissants — that will hit the spot whether she’s a fan of sweet or savory.
A note from the heart makes for the most meaningful gift. Tell mom how you feel with the humorous Pike St. Press Mom You’re the Jam Card ($6 at Pike Street Press, downtown), pressed right here in Seattle.
Just because your gift is last-minute doesn’t mean it can’t be personal. Pop into the downtown Madewell store on your lunch break and get mom’s initials stamped on an item she’ll always carry with her — such as the elegant Leather Pouch Wallet ($29.50, plus $10 for personalization or free for Madewell Insiders).
