My mom, sister & I on Easter last year.

Mother’s Day 2016 Deals & Ideas

Mother’s Day is right around the corner!  Luckily, there are lots of great deals available that you can still get in time for Mother’s Day!  Most of these deals will be active past today, but some may sell out or expire, so make sure you check them out soon if you are interested.  I will try to keep this list updated and add to it as well.

Mother’s Day is an especially important day for my family because my mother is fighting stage 4 head and neck cancer.  Each day with her is precious.  If you are blessed enough to have a mother or mother figure in your life, please take it from me and do not take a single moment for granted!  Every Mother’s Day is so important and special.

Flowers & Other Delivery Deals:


ProFlowers: Groupon has a deal for ProFlowers!  Pay $10 for $30 worth of flowers (or whatever else you choose from the site)!  That is one of the better flower deals available right now.  Shipping starts at $12.99.

Shari's Berries

Shari’s Berries: Groupon aslo has a deal for 50% off Shari’s Berries!  Pay either $15 for $30 worth or $20 for $40 worth!  Shipping starts at $9.99 but you can apply this voucher toward shipping costs.  Mother’s Day delivery is still available!  These Half Dozen Gourmet Dipped Classic Strawberries are $19.99, so if you get the Groupon Voucher first, shipping and the strawberries should be covered in the voucher!  There are all kinds of other items available for delivery on the site as well.

Jewelry Deals: 

Limoges Necklace

Limoges Jewelry: Aah the classic jewelry gifts.  You can’t go wrong with gifts that combine jewelry with thoughtfulness!  If you are unsure of ring sizes, choose a necklace so that you can be fairly certain the item will fit.  Personalize with names or birthstones.  Use the code GIFT4MOM to take an additional 50% off plus FREE shipping on the items on this page.  Use the code BESTMOM to get the necklace pictured for just $9.99 (MSRP $59.99)!  The deadline for standard shipping to arrive by Mother’s Day is 4/30 according to their website.

Printable & Email Gift Deals: aka Last Minute Gifts

Amazon Mother's Day

Amazon Gift Card: Get a printable Amazon Gift Card!  You can’t go wrong with those, plus they are great last minute gifts!  You can also opt for e-gift cards if you do not have a printer.  If you order early enough (as last minute as the day before, where available), you can get physical gift cards delivered right to your (or your mother’s) door.

Netflix: Cover 3 months of the basic Netflix plan with a $25 gift card (plus one month of free trial if the customer is new!).  This is delivered via email, so there are no shipping charges to worry about!  This is a great deal for those who want to binge watch those amazing Netflix-exclusive shows but maybe do not need a subscription beyond that.  $25 is the minimum gift card amount.

Subscription Deals:

LivingSocial Mag Deals

LivingSocial Magazine Deals: LivingSocial has fourteen, $5 magazine subscription deals available including Martha Stewart Living, Allrecipes & Do It Yourself subscriptions for 1 year!  These are not auto-renewal subsciptions either (meaning you will not be charged again after the year is up), so they make great gifts!

Amazon Magazine Deals: Amazon also has lots of magazine subscription deals for Mother’s Day starting at just $5!  However, please note most of the Amazon magazine deals include auto-renewal, so make sure to set a reminder on your calendar to cancel the subscription if you do not want to get charged / subscribe again next year.

Unique Ideas:

Minted Silhouette

This custom silhouette art from Minted is different from the classic picture in a frame gift, plus pick from 23 silhouette colors and 16 different frame designs (or use a frame you have at home to save money!).  Just upload a side profile picture of a person or a pet to get a custom silhouette!  A 5×7 is $32 without a frame or $41 with the frame.  On many sites, similar products cost about 4 times the price of this one, but these look just as good!

DNA WorldView

DNA WorldView Test: Normally these ancestry tests cost over $200 but LivingSocial has a deal right now to get this for $97.99!  To me, these are a the perfect Mother’s Day gift because they are about family and roots.  This would be a great idea for the history / family history buff.
