Mother's Day Gifts Roundup: Cards, Chocolates, Flowers, and more

By Joshua Nichol-Caddy, dealnews contributor

My mom taught me the oldest bread was the best because it was the cheapest. She taught me that taking karate lessons was a waste when I could learn the same things from fighting on the school bus. My mom taught me to be frugal, and how to take a punch. How do I repay her? Obviously, partly by showing her that I've perfected the lessons of my youth by saving on things people actually want, namely these five Mother's Day gifts that'll show her you care.

Three Editors' Choice deals make this week's roundup Mother's Day gifts, which include cards and flowers. A gift bag from Bath & Body Works is also available at a significantly reduced price as is a gift basket of Godiva chocolates. And, if you can't find what you're looking for here, check out our other Mother's Day gifts.

  1. Paper Coterie Coupon
    Discount: $15 off via coupon code "GIFTFAVES"
    Shipping: From $6 s&h

    Is It Worth It?: This Editors' Choice deal takes $15 off all orders at Paper Coterie, an online service that prints personalized planners, photobooks, and calendars. Hallmark's canned sentimentality can't compete with a card featuring a picture of Mom and a favorite example of her love. And you'll potentially pay next to nothing because this deal comes with no minimum purchase.

  2. $30 ProFlowers Credit
    Vendor: Living Social
    Price: $15
    Expires: May 7

    Is It Worth It?: A $30 credit at ProFlowers is available for $15 through this Editors' Choice deal that, unlike previous such discounts, can be used toward sales tax and shipping (which starts at $12.99) in addition to flowers. Make your mom smile in the office with a vase of multi-colored tulips delivered to her at work.

  3. Free Mother's Day Card
    Vendor: Cardstore
    Price: Free via coupon code "LUVMOM" with free shipping
    Expires: May 6

    Is It Worth It?: Say "My mom is the best!" with another Editors' Choice deal. Cardstore offers free cards for Mother's Day, which will allow you to put your card money toward a slightly (slightly) pricier gift.

  4. Bath & Body Works Gift Bag with $40 Purchase
    Vendor: Bath & Body Works
    Price: $20 via coupon code "LOVEMOM" with $7.99 s&h
    Lowest By: $97
    Expires: May 13

    Is It Worth It?: This lovely gift bag includes body lotion, shower gel, a fine fragrance mist, foaming hand soap, lip gloss, a mini candle, a bath sponge, and tote bag, which typically costs $101.50. But it can be yours for $20 with a $40 purchase via coupon code "LOVEMOM".

  5. Happy Mother's Day Godiva Chocolates Gift Basket
    Vendor: 1-800-Baskets
    Price: $24.99 via coupon code "BSKTSAVE50" with $9.99 s&h
    Lowest By: $25

    Is It Worth It?: If Mom thinks flowers are a waste of money because they'll just die, order her a basket of sweets that includes an assortment of decadent chocolate treats from Godiva. Dark and milk chocolate coat candy centers of rich caramel and coffee. Yum. Just hope she shares!
