Coronavirus News: 7 On Your Side with your last minute Mother's Day gift ideas

NEW YORK (WABC) -- There's been a lot going on the last couple of months, so if you're scrambling for a Mother's Day gift, 7 On Your Side has some last minute ideas.

You have every excuse to have forgotten to get a gift for mom this year.

But do you really want to upset the mother in your life this Sunday?

Here's some last minute ideas she's sure to love.

Flowers are always a favorite. Order or pick up a bouquet for Mother's Day.

Your local florists, like Northvale Florist, will make sure to deliver on time.

She says she has about 100 orders between now and Mother's Day.

Florists' Transworld Delivery (FTD) is also still shipping on Friday for delivery Saturday, and is offering 20 percent off site-wide.

Curbside pick-up will be your other last minute option to get a gift on time.

Closed retailers are open online, from local boutiques to large chains. If you order, someone will bring it right out to your car.

"You can also consider going to Best Buy, Kohls, Target, Walmart, Office Depot, Dicks, The Container Store -- all good options to consider for mom," Retailmenot's shopping and trends expert Sara Skirboll said.

She says there's a lot of ways to get creative, especially last minute. Skirboll says you can give a gift card or take a picture of a nice foot spa.

She also says Michael's craft stores have fun things the kids can make together with mom.

Ulta Beauty is running a promo, spend $15 and get $3.50 off with a promo code. Plus, many locations are offering pick-up.

You can also choose from mom's favorite restaurant.

"We know that 35 percent of moms just want a nice dinner out -- they don't want to cook, they want to be waited on and they do not want to clean up the dishes," Skirboll said.
