Calling all last-minute shoppers: It’s not too late to secure a thoughtful gift for Mother’s Day. While we may be inching closer to the actual date (Mother’s Day lands on May 14 this year), many retailers have a surplus of options to buy that will arrive in the knick of time—she’ll never know you left shopping until the very last second.

One of the best places to look for Mother’s Day gifts is none other than Nordstrom. Not only do they have a wide array of gift options, but they also have really cute things across a wide range of budgets, including gifts for under $50. Nordstrom also offers add-ons, such as gift wrap and styling (signature paper, gift boxes and customizable notes), so you won’t have to worry about that either. And for those who really dropped the ball this year, you can buy gifts online and pick them up in-store or curbside before meeting up with your mom to celebrate. Expedited shipping is also an option, with either two-day shipping or one-day shipping available for an additional cost. 

Nordstrom carries over 1,500 gifts that retail for $50 and under, so it’s safe to say you’re almost guaranteed to find something the mother figure in your life will enjoy. Since you’re already down to the wire, we did most of the work for you and rounded up our top 10 favorite finds out of the hundreds of options.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do.
