  • These brands have fast shipping and delivery options

If you've put off buying a Mother's Day gift for Mom, here's your friendly reminder to get on that ASAP -- the big day is May 13.

But you really don't need to stress, especially given the number of brands that have fast shipping and delivery options. Here are some brands you can count on to get Mom her gift on time.

Amazon Prime

If you're already an Amazon Prime member, then you're likely familiar with the program's many perks. If not, allow us to get you up to speed. Amazon Prime offers free two-day shipping on thousands of products that span almost every category. Plus, for those living in certain ZIP codes, some items come with free same-day shipping. When you break down the cost of being a member, it's a $10-per-month price tag — and shipping almost anything overnight would cost at least that much on its own. To shop for Mom, here are some fun options with Amazon Prime-eligible shipping:

1. Winstion iPhone Stand Charging Dock ($16.99; amazon.com)

If you Facetime with Mom a lot, this is the charging stand she needs to chat with you, hands free, while her phone charges.

2. Silver Phantom Jewelry ($29.99; amazon.com)

Are you and Mom coffee fanatics? Give her this cute and clever caffeine molecule necklace, available in rose gold, silver and gold. In fact, go ahead and get two — one for her and one for you. If you really want to go all out on the coffee-themed presents, these "my coffee, your coffee" spoons are precious.

3. AMIR Phone Camera Lens ($16.99; amazon.com)

Mom may not be a skilled photographer, but with this handy clip-on lens, she can snap unique photos of her travels, grandkids and more.

4. E-gift Cards (starting at $1; amazon.com)
