When it comes to Mother’s Day gift-giving, planning ahead is a surefire way to snag the perfect Mother’s Day gift—but as it turns out, procrastination can have its perks. The great news for feet-draggers everywhere is that one of the best gifts you can give mom is currently $ 20 off and can be purchased on the actual holiday: Amazon’s deep house cleaning service, which starts at just $ 55.
This gift is printable, so you can literally buy it on Mother’s Day, no shipping necessary—yet it doesn’t scream “I failed to plan ahead!” It’s no surprise this useful present is consistently a top-seller.
This cleaning service is hands-down the best last-minute Mother’s Day gift: It’s super thoughtful, practical, and something she probably wouldn’t buy for herself. A winning trifecta. If your mom always seems to be cleaning up after kids, grandkids, her spouse, the dog, etc., etiquette experts advise against gifting cleaning supplies, but highly recommend a cleaning service to come in and scrub the house down while she gets the chance to kick back.
You can choose from two options: the Spring Cleaning package includes a thorough baseline cleaning of surfaces from bathroom to bedroom to kitchen, including dusting and wiping down baseboards, cabinets, light fixtures, and mopping and vacuuming all rooms.
Or opt for a Deep Cleaning session, which is a more intense, detailed scrub down of the house. The cleaning pro will wash interior windows, clean shower tracks, and even scour the inside of mom’s fridge, oven, and cabinets for an additional fee.
Since Amazon sends along local cleaning experts with the best cleaning supplies and know-how to deep clean mom’s home, she can have more time for some much-needed R&R.
