Last minute Mother's Day gifts that don't look last minute & gift scams to watch for

Last minute Mother's Day gift ideas from Danielle Serino

CLEVELAND - If you haven't bought a Mother's Day gift yet, we've got you covered. But you also need to be careful, where you go to find them.

The beauty of these suggestions is they don't look like last minute gifts.

Giftagram
You download a free app and find a gift you like.
Provide the recipients email, and Giftagram will contact them immediately to let them know a gift is coming and ask where they want it shipped.
That way they'll know you didn't forget about them.

Gift Now
Ralph Lauren dot com does something similar as Giftagram with Gift Now, where recipients actually pick out the size and color they want. And, they're having a great sale now!

Egifter
A recipient can choose a gift card from hundreds of different stores.
They'll be notified with an e-greeting card where you can add a message and video.
And there are no fees on these cards for the gifter or the recipient.

Godiva Chocolatier
You can order up to 1pm on Sunday, and have something hand-delivered that day. The catch is that the goods have to be in stock at a nearby store, and the delivery fee is twenty dollars.

We have a warning though about Facebook scammers offering Mother's Day deals.
You may see coupons offering great discounts or coupons to major retailers.
But the scam deals have links to fake websites that look very real. 
You're asked take a survey, where they'll try to steal your personal information.
To see if it's a scam, google the offer to see if there are warnings about it.  You can also go directly to the store's website which may have information.

Good luck to you last minute shoppers. And Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.

Here are links to some deals being offered for Mother’s Day:
