Sure, there's a certain thrill to finding the perfect gift for mom at an artisan craft fair or street market, but let's be honest, shopping while simultaneously trying to wrangle little ones is insanely hard. And really, what's better than having a gift-wrapped gift delivered straight to your front door? Add in free shipping, and the choice is clear: Prime everything! That's why we've got
15 Mother's Day Gifts You Can Order on Amazon that are easy to get and easy on your wallet.
I knew I had a Prime problem when my postman started giving me judgmental looks when he delivered yet another Amazon package. But, as a working mom of two, it's easier for me to click a button than pack two kiddos into their car seats and head to the store. I pretty much do all of my Christmas, Easter, and birthday shopping online. I figured, what's the harm in adding Mother's Day gifts to that list. I could shop for my mom, my mother-in-law, and my friends who recently became moms in one fell swoop, and get the adrenaline rush of seeing all the items in my cart qualify for two-day Prime shipping. And even without a Prime membership, you're still not paying an arm and a leg to get these goods delivered to your (or your recipient's) door.
So, here are 15 awesome, affordable Amazon gifts that will wow mom on Mother's Day. Note: Mother's Day is Sunday, May 13, this year, so that means order by May 9 (May 10 if you want to live dangerously) to get your package in time.
