It’s noon on Mother’s Day, and you don’t even have a card for the special lady in your life. When you pull out your phone and order up a manicurist to appear minutes later at her front door, she’ll never be the wiser.

Uber, the app-based car service, is offering UberManis for moms this weekend. It’s simple and brilliant: Open the Uber app between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday, click on UberMani and order a nail tech to be at her door in minutes. Mom will get VIP treatment in the comfort of her own home, plus a new bottle of nail polish to keep.You will look like a high roller, but you’ll only be out $35 (tipping is not allowed!).
