From Flowers to Fabulous Jewelry, It's the Mother of All Mother's Day Deals

By , dealnews contributor

With Mother's Day over two weeks away (it's Sunday, May 12!), you've got plenty of time to figure out what your Mom might want this year ... so don't show up with just a card (though you could do worse than 30% off one from Cardstore). Consider picking her up something nice to wear from Macy's (via the best extra discount we've seen since Cyber Monday) or some sweet-smelling roses a la a $40 FTD credit. These are a few of our favorite Mother's Day gifts that'll show her that you care about your budget as much as you do her.

  1. Swarovski Crystal 14K Gold-Plated Mom Necklace
    Price: $19 via coupon code "DEALNEWS04" with free shipping
    Lowest By: $5
    Expires: May 11

    Is It Worth It?: While this pendant spells "MOM" in cursive and shimmering Swarovski crystals, it might as well spell "BARGAIN", as it's $5 under the lowest total price we could find for a comparable Mom necklace. It is attached to a 14K gold-plated, 18" chain.

  2. $40 FTD Credit
    Store: Groupon
    Price: $20
    Expires: April 25

    Is It Worth It?: Flowers are simple and sweet gifts for Valentine's Day and Mother's Day, so it's no surprise that we're seeing another $40 credit for $20 at this month. Note that only one voucher can be used per order. The voucher expires July 31.

  3. World of Watches Mother's Day Sale
    Discount: Up to 96% off
    Shipping: Free shipping

    Is It Worth It?: Hey, what time is it? It's time to take advantage of this sale on women's watches, that's what! Offering the largest percent-off discoun we've seen from World of Watches in recent months, prices on watches from Invicta, Adidas, Movado, BCBG, and more start at just $9.99.

  4. Cardstore Mother's Day Cards Sale
    Discount: 30% off
    Shipping: Free shipping
    Expires: April 24

    Is It Worth It?: You could try writing your own card: "Dear Mom, You're the bomb. You shine brighter than a CD-ROM." Then again, you can't go wrong with 30% off a nice Mother's Day Card. Or a ch funny card. Or a photo cards. There are also grandma cards, romantic Mom cards, and fortunately, not a single card that tries to rhyme "Mom" with "CD-ROM."

  5. Macy's Friends and Family Sale
    Discount: Extra 25% off via coupon code "FRIEND"
    Shipping: From $9.95 s&h or free shipping on orders of $99 or more
    Expires: April 28

    Is It Worth It?: Family and friends will benefit from this extra 25% discount; we haven't seen a coupon this good since Cyber Monday! It's also one of the best sitewide discounts we've seen from Macy's. The extra discount includes sale and clearance items, but a variety of exclusions apply: shipping costs, furniture, mattresses, purchases in Macy's stores, and prior purchases.
