Mother’s Day is right around the corner and that means quick thinking if you haven’t picked out a gift yet! Lucky for you, the Long Island Press has crafted a great go-to Mother’s Day Gift Guide to help out.

Our list includes affordable options that are sure to please any mom, from the dog-lover to the fashionista and book worm. The best part is, all are available online.

One good gift that won’t break the bank is a canvas print at CVS. The photo gifts start at just $12.99 and is available in a slew of different sizes and styles. The photo gifts make for a super personal gift that mom will just love.

You can order it right from your desktop and ship it free to a local CVS store. All you have to do is pick out the best picture of your favorite gal, upload it to the CVS website and hit purchase.

Canvas prints aren’t the only option CVS is offering. Other special Mother’s Day gifts available on their website include photo books, cards, photo panels and calendars.

For a fashionista mom, opt for something from Tous. The jewelry store is offering a plethora of special Mother’s Day gifts that any fashionable female is sure to adore. One of the higher priced gift options is “Love Mama” and goes for $869 . It features a yellow gold ring with the diamond-encrusted words “Love Mama” inside. The same design is available in sterling silver, sans diamonds, for $89.

For a collector mom, for just $40 there is a sentimental photo water globe at Things Remembered. The gift comes from the Expressions From The Heart Collection, is silver plated and features hand tooling. The precious globe plays “I Just Called To Say I Love You” and features an engraved message and picture.

“She’s always been there for you, from bandaging up scraped knees to giving good advice on boys (even if it didn’t seem like it at the time!). Tell Mom how much you love her with this unique gift that will have even more meaning for her with an engraved message from you,” reads ThingsRemembered.com.

For a dog-loving mother, 1-800-Flowers has provided a great gift option. The gift, “Mama Paws,” is a signature a-DOG-able arrangement. The dog-shaped floral creation features white carnations, pink dianthus, poms and comes complete with a mini tote bag and magnet that says “Mom Rules.” The gift basket costs $59.99.

The flower company has other tempting floral options too, including Stepping Out, a floral arrangement set in a stiletto as well as Bird House In Blooms, a floral arrangement set in a lime green bird house.

For the reader, opt for the new Barnes & Noble NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight. It costs $139, is available at Barnes & Noble and is the only reader designed for bedtime reading. It features soft glow optimized for low light reading: a warm light illuminates the entire screen evenly. It also features Best-Text and adjustable fonts that make words super clear. Another great feature; it’s the lightest NOOK ever.

As an added gift, download “Fifty Shades of Grey” for $9.99 or order the whole trilogy. Mom will certainly enjoy this bedtime novel that follows college graduate Anastasia Steele who meets billionaire Christian Grey. Steele soon signs a contract with Grey, allowing him to have control over her in the bedroom. The erotic fiction novel has been a hit with readers since its release.
