It wasn’t long ago that if you forgot to buy a Mother’s Day gift before the holiday you were out of luck, especially if the recipient lived far away.

Gripe about the pace of the modern world, but that speed definitely works in our favor when best intentions or efforts fail.

If your mom or other gift recipient lives nearby, you may still have time to buy a gift at a store and deliver it yourself — Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 14, this year. But what if the recipient lives far away or you just don’t have time or energy to go to the store and then race around to have it delivered in time?

Check out these last-minute solutions:

  4. eGifter

Sometimes you want to send a gift card but just don’t have time to drive around to find one from an appropriate retailer. Enter the eGifter Choice Card. As eGifter describes this unique electronic gift card:

“The eGifter Choice Card gives you total flexibility and choice! The recipient can choose from hundreds of gift cards on or in our mobile apps to get whatever they want, whenever they need it. … They can redeem the full value for one or more gift cards of their choice, such as, Best Buy, Adidas, Target, The Home Depot…the list goes on and on!”

So you simply decide how much you want to spend on the recipient — from $5 to $2,000 — and pay that amount online. There are no fees to send or redeem an eGifter Choice Card.

When you place your order, you’ll be able to specify whether you want eGifter to send the gift card to the recipient (on a date of your choosing), or whether you want to print a PDF version of the gift card to give the recipient yourself.
