In a perfect world, you would have read our Mother’s Day gifting story last week, found something you liked, and already have it gift-wrapped and ready to hand off to your mom this weekend. But in the very real case that things didn’t play out so smoothly, we’re here to remind you that Amazon Prime exists and has your back.
Based on the fact that more than half of all American households have Prime memberships, you’re probably already familiar with the two-day (and sometimes same-day) shipping service. But you might not have realized that those shipping perks also apply to Shopbop.com, because it’s owned by the same company. TL;DR: If you have Prime (or are willing to sign up), then you still have time to find the mom(s) in your life the perfect gift without it looking like a last-minute scramble.
To save you the time and help you navigate the overwhelming selection on both sites — there’s definitely a lot of crap to wade through — we’ve pulled together more than a dozen gifts that’ll both make your mom happy and help you retain golden child status.
(P.S.: If you happen to share your Amazon Prime account with your family, be sure to delete your history.)
