A great way to be pampered

You have less than a week to prepare for Mother's Day. Whether it's too late to order the gift you had in mind or your mom just prefers shopping for herself, a gift card to one of her favorite stores or a new experience is the perfect gift to show you care. Just pair it with a creative greeting card, and you're shopping will be done before you know it. If you're stuck on where to get a gift card from, we found the best gift cards for Mother's Day, from new streaming services to travel.

We've compiled a list of our favorite gift cards for Mother's Day, and we've included a variety of options that will appeal to all sorts of personalities and tastes. Whether Mom loves fitness gear, kitchen gadgets, beauty products or just binge-watching her favorite shows, these gift cards are guaranteed to delight. Just add a thoughtful and heartfelt message to make it more personal, and you're good to go.


Is there a food she's totally crazy about or has always wanted to try? Goldbelly will send prepared eats from some of the most iconic restaurants and dining destinations around the country, and it ships straight to Mom's doorstep. Does she have a hankering for authentic New York bagels? No problem. Has she always wanted to try Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa coconut cake? She'll have so many options, she won't know where to begin.


If Mom is a workout enthusiast, or even if she just likes wearing athleisure, she'll love getting a Lululemon gift card. Lululemon isn't cheap, but the brand's leggings and other athletic apparel are high quality and will last her a long time. E-gift cards start at $10. 


You know Mom could use a break, and she definitely deserves a vacation. Let her choose when and where with an Airbnb gift card. You can specify any monetary amount, and she can put it toward her next adventure.


Does Mom enjoy cooking or consider herself a seasoned home chef? Then you can't go wrong with a Williams-Sonoma gift card. From fancy cookware and chef's knives to dinnerware and baking essentials, the store offers everything to make a home chef happy. You can choose a gift card amount anywhere from $25 to $500.


Does Mom obsess over skincare or beauty products? Then a Sephora gift card is an excellent choice. Sephora has all the most coveted skincare and beauty products, along with a wide array of perfumes and hair tools. The lowest value gift card is $10, while the highest available is $250. No matter the price you choose, this gift will always be appreciated.

Blue Apron

Not every mom is in charge of meal planning, but some moms are, and if she's had a hard day at work, it's probably the last thing she wants to think about. Take some of the burden of cooking off her plate with a gift card at Blue Apron, our top pick for the best meal delivery service.


If Mom is the outdoorsy type, she'll love being able to shop for gear at REI. Whether she needs a new windbreaker, a hydration pack or a sleeping bag, REI has everything she could need for her next outdoor adventure.

Disney Plus

If your mom loves streaming her favorite shows, chances are she already has a subscription to Netflix. Have you considered expanding her viewing options? Disney Plus offers a wide range of selections, from all the best Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies to popular shows like The Mandalorian. You can choose any amount starting at $25. A yearly subscription with ads costs $96 and the Premium version without ads costs $140. Read our Disney Plus review.

Massage Envy

If you want your mom to feel truly pampered on Mother's Day, a gift card for a massage is just the ticket. Massage Envy is the biggest provider of therapeutic massages in the US, with over 1,100 locations. You can choose any amount on the gift card, but be sure to check out the cost of a standard massage, since prices vary by location.


With this gift card, your mother will be able to spend her money on just about anything she chooses. Whether it's a peaceful time at a spa, a fancy dinner or strolling around a museum, the options are only limited to her imagination. You can put a minimum of $25 on this gift card and the maximum amount is $100.


You have to give it to your mom -- she's a lifelong learner, am I right? If so, then grabbing this yearly membership will give her access to content from notable people including Annie Leibovitz for photography and Gordon Ramsay and Dominique Crenn for cooking, to name just a few. A MasterClass membership is like a continuous learning experience without expensive tuition. Who wouldn't love that? An individual membership costs $120 per year.


Do you have a mom who loves music? If so, you can gift her this to let her listen to music anywhere, whenever she wants, right on her phone. Amazon Music Unlimited will give her access to 100 million songs ad-free and with the capability to listen offline without any hassle. 

A FabFitFun gift card is a great way to bring the spa to your mother's home, especially if she doesn't have time to go to a spa. She can use this gift card to sign up for a new membership to get a beauty box that will help her relax. The minimum purchase amount is $80 and the maximum is $300.
