Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 8, which means we’re officially in last-minute territory. At this point, a lot of gifts may not arrive on time — which is why we’ve rounded up the best last-minute gifts for moms that should still make it (if you order today), along with the best online gift cards if you don’t even want to think about shipping. But of course, we also feel that the right gift is always worth the wait. So for those set on finding the perfect present, we’ve got thoughtful ideas for every type of mom, from the foodie mom to the new mom to the mom who likes when her presents do good for others, too. (As always, if you want to stay on top of our gift coverage, sign up for our newsletter so you won’t miss a thing.)

Just about every type of mom enjoys pulling on her pajamas after a long day — even more so when they’re this “buttery soft” Eberjey pair. A perennial Strategist favorite, they’re soft, wrinkle free, and “great for padding around at home.” If your mom has enough loungewear, we found lots of other options at every price point.
