Mother's Day is going to be here before you know it! Do you have your present ready to go? If you've been too busy or just can't find something worth giving the mother figure in your life, 1-800 Flowers Brands is here for you!

Now, don't think of 1-800 Flowers or any of its brands as a last-minute resort for gifts. The quality of the gifts they offer are more deserving than that! Some of the suggestions I share below were gifted to me by 1-800 Flowers, but this isn't my first time working with the brand. I am very familiar with what they offer, from the beautiful flower arrangements to the soft buttercream cookies from Cheryl's Cookies.

The presentation of their gifts always impresses me, as for the flavors of the treats? Delicious! My tastebuds thank me every single time. That said, whether this is the first time you order from 1-800 Flowers or not, we're sharing four gifts under $50 you can set up to have delivered in time for Mother's Day.

First up, we have the Spring Fancy and Sandwich Cookies Tin from Cheryl's Cookies. At the time of this writing, this gift is on sale for $36.99, but even if you miss this offer, its regular price is only $39.99, still well under $50. Here's what the gift includes:

All of these goodies come inside a plain tin with the Cheryl's Cookies logo on it, which makes it perfect for the recipient to decorate it and use it however they'd like. In my full review of the product, I call this cookie tin a Cheryl's Cookies sampler as it has a little bit of everything. If you're a first time Cheryl's Cookies gift giver, this is what I recommend.
