Edible Fruit Arrangements

File this one under unique gifts for mom. Also, file it under Best Gifts for Under $100 because that's how we've actually decided to categorize it here. Enough dilly dallying though - coupon code "WEEKEND10" takes $10 off orders of $50 or more on the likes of edible bouquets, chocolate-dipped fruit boxes, and Mother's Day gift arrangements. No more need be said.

A woman's bicycle.

Kent Bicycles 700c Women's RoadTech Road Bicycle for $128 (save $70)

This is a little over $100 but we'll nonetheless allow it within this section of the article because it's a fine deal. A new bicycle isn't exactly a traditional Mother's Day gift but for the time being let us gently push tradition aside. Don't worry, it's still over there in the corner. While tradition watches on in confusion, in its place is the radical new concept of bike gifting for Mother's Day. Think about it, you can be among the first to implement this unique kind of gift for your mom. Soon, everyone will be buying bikes for Mother's Day. But! Even if it doesn't catch on, you'll still have saved $70. You'll always have that.

Best Home and Garden Gifts

A bouquet of flowers.

Mother's Day Sale at 1-800-Flowers: Extra 25% off

Coupon code "25MDAY" is the key to getting an extra 25% off flowers. Before you buy your mother flowers though, do stop to think if any pets she keeps might be allergic to said flowers. Poor Mittens better not to come to any harm as a result of your flower carelessness - or else! In terms of last minute gifts for mom, flowers certainly work, however if you're trying to schedule a delivery very close to the big day itself (Mother's Day) you might well be out of luck as most delivery slots will likely have already been snapped up by better organized individuals. You got yourself into this pickle and now you must get yourself out of it.

A French press coffee maker.

Bodum 51-oz. Brazil French Press Coffee Maker for $18 (save $18)

Everyone loves coffee so it follows that a coffee maker would make for a suitable gift for your mother. Actually, I don't like coffee myself. If I don't like coffee then it can't be said that everyone likes coffee and so your mom might not actually like coffee. The premise of this entire paragraph has fallen apart in record time. Away, to the next deal!

Best Jewelry Gifts

A women's bracelet.

Coach Iconic Padlock Tennis Bangle Bracelet for $63 (save $62)

A nearly 50% off discount on a Coach bracelet is nothing to sneeze at. In fact, you shouldn't be sneezing at anything other than whatever object is being used to contain the germs within your sneeze, you filthy spreader of infections. And! This isn't just a bracelet, it's an iconic bracelet. It says it right there in the name so it has to be true.

A ceramic tray for jewelry.

HOME SMILE Ceramic Ring Dish Jewelry Tray for Mom for $10.87 (save $3)

Nothing says "I love you mom" like something that literally says "I love you mom." In the case of this jewelry dish tray, you also get a bonus word in the form of "remember" preceding the core message, so that's good and surely adds extra value.

Best Electronics Gifts

A Samsung smartwatch.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 40mm Smartwatch for $218 (save $82)

Everyone needs to tell the time, even mothers. Scratch that - especially mothers. Therefore we can deduce that a watch, nay, a smartwatch would make a good gift for a mother and since it's a smartwatch it does things other than tell the time. Those things include but are not limited to always-on heart monitoring, exercise tracking, and as is visible on the above picture, wild and wacky watch faces.

Apple AirPods (3rd generation)

Best Buy Mother's Day Gift Ideas: Up to $400 off tech gifts

Best Buy is a known seller of electronic goods and they have mercifully decided to discount a selection of such goods all in the name of Mother's Day. Thus, we turn to them for deals on electronic Mother's Day gifts. These gifts take the specific form of AirPods, Amazon Fire TV sticks, various iPhone and iPad models, the Shark FlexStyle Air Styling and Drying System, plus much more.

Best Clothing Gifts

A women's hooded jacket in Elderberry color.

32 Degrees Women's Lightweight Packable Down Hooded Jacket for $15 (save $85)

For the mother who likes to not be cold outside, a jacket is an ideal gift. This particular jacket is $85 off, making it even more ideal. A higher body temperature and a lower hit on the old wallet. Everyone wins.

Timberland Women's Skyla Bay Leather Boots

Timberland Women's Skyla Bay Leather Boots for $35 (save $22)

They're leather. They're pull-on. They're $22 less than the next best price we could find. They're quite possibly a great gift for a mother for Mother's Day.

Cole Haan Women's Essential Small Tote

Cole Haan Handbag Sale: Up to 52% off + extra 40% off for members

Anyone who suggests handbags aren't among the best gifts for mom is a blasted liar. A liar, a snake, and most certainly a terrible shabaroon. This becomes doubly true when the handbags in question are up to 52% off with an extra 40% off for members like they currently are at Cole Haan. Above and Beyond Members also bag free shipping too and conveniently it's free to join. Excellent.
