Last Minute Mother’s Day Ideas: Sweets and Sips

Looking for some last minute Mother’s Day ideas? I always have the hardest time figuring out what to get my mom. She loves shopping and clothes…but getting my mom clothes as a gift never seems quite right. Massage? Spa day? All nice, but isn’t the point of Mother’s Day to actually spend time together? So this year I went a little retro and decided to DIY a few of my mom’s favorite things: chocolate and cocktails.

These are perfect because they are handmade, moms love that! And they are easy to make and easy on your budget. Plus, you can never go wrong sharing a chocolate flower bouquet or mom-osa with your mama this weekend!

What about sipping a cocktail with mom this morning? Even though I love to cook, I know that won’t happen this weekend because my Granny ALWAYS cooks for us on Mother’s Day. So before we indulge in brunch, I plan to shake up a few cocktails.
