Mother's Day is almost here! If you're a last-minute shopper who's starting to panic because you don't have any ideas what to get that special lady in your life, don't worry. We're here to help. With a little inspiration, you can put together a fabulous and personal gift any mom would love. And since this gift is for your one-of-a-kind mom, a regular old gift bag won't do! Try these Mother's Day gifts in mason jars -- the results are absolutely adorable.

Spa in a jar
Fill the jar with all the spa essential: lotions, skincare products, scented candles, and lots of beauty products, like the one below from The Gunny Sack. You could even slip a gift card in for a trip to the spa in this jar. What a perfect way to let your mom enjoy a spa day this Mother's Day.

Tea in a jar
For the mom that loves to relax with a hot cup of tea, fill the jar with tea bags and loose leaf tea. Add a few small jars of honey, a tea infuser, and a sweet treat she can enjoy with her tea (see ideas at The Gunny Sack).

Garden in a jar
From seeds, flower bulbs, and a few small gardening tools, you can put together a beautiful and thoughtful last minute gift for the mom with a green thumb. You could even use the mason jars to create an herb garden!

Reason we love you jar
Cut up colorful slips of paper and have everyone writing reasons why your mom is so great on each piece of paper. From "You always read my favorite books to me" to "You give the best hugs," fill the jar with the folded up notes so that mom can read and enjoy the sweet notes all year long.

Mani and pedi in a jar
Grab a few bottles of nail polish, a small manicure tool set, and a few foot scrubs for a fun and colorful jar that will let your mom pamper herself. The one below is from Freebie Finding Mom.
