Okay, it's the week of Mother's Day and you haven't gotten around to buying a gift just yet (due to all the distractions, of course.) Don't dial 1-800-FLOWERS just yet. While your gift probably won't end up invoking nostalgic tears of joy this late in the game, there's still plenty of heart-warming options available. We rounded up the best last-minute Mother's Day gift and card ideas that are still worthy of being displayed on the refrigerator for years to come. Nobody will know that you haven't been planning this for weeks.—Erika Graham
