Mother's Day is right around the corner. While some companies, like Blue Nile (Nasdaq: NILE ) , Tiffany's (NYSE: TIF ) , American Greetings (NYSE: AM ) , and Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN ) , are waiting diligently for your last-minute Mother's Day purchases, we thought we would pitch in and do some of the heavy lifting for you.

Throw it in an envelope, add a postage stamp at whatever today's going rate is, and you're all done for this year!
OK, but really: A stock might not be as visually appealing as that bouquet of flowers, but it can return value year after year. With that in mind, our Fools have hand-picked this list of stocks and financial ideas with your mama in mind. Many of these stocks are strong consumer-facing brands that moms love. We add a little Buffett charm from Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B ) to the bulk goods of Costco (NYSE: COST ) and sprinkle in some dividend love from Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG ) . There's something for every mom, no matter what her hobbies or investing interests may be. Who knows, you might even learn a thing or two about these companies from your mom.
With or without our stock ideas, we wish every mom in Fooldom a happy Mother's Day!
Our Mother's Day fare with a Foolish bow:
