Yes, you'll still have to actually go shopping today, but these five gift ideas for the special woman in your life are sure to out live some flowers. Not only that, they will show her that you love her; you care about her and more than anything, you put thought into something she'll undoubtedly enjoy— even if, well, you haven't.  

Invite mom over for tea this Mother’s Day. Crate and Barrel teamed up with various artists to create designs for an exclusive collection of teacups.The selected artists use the canvas of Martin Hunt’s teacup to display their unique designs. Just in time for the holiday, artist Jude Landry used his renowned letter stenciling and patterns to create a cup celebrating moms.
