The typical go-to gifts for mom on her special day tend to give her time and space to herself, out of the house and away from the rest of the family. However, during a time of social distancing and shelter-in-place, those typical gift ideas aren’t possible. Here are a few ideas to show her how much you care and celebrate her motherhood at the same time.
Order From A Local Florist
As weddings and large events are being canceled or postponed, your local small business florist is probably struggling a lot right now. Reach out to your favorite local shop to ask about contactless deliveries. Bringing a bit of spring indoors will help liven up the space for everyone—including mom.
Set Up a Family FaceTime Photoshoot with a Pro
Are we surprised that creative professionals are getting creative on how to keep working and making special things during social distancing? Of course not. This photographer pro can conduct a photoshoot session through FaceTime with your family right in your own home. The photos, won’t be the highest resolution, but that’s what makes the price so friendly! According to her site you’ll get, “A bunch of fun, quirky, lowish resolution images to remember your time in quarantine as well as 30 minutes of conversation and honestly – probably laughter.” That sounds like a perfect memory maker to us.
Order Something Tasty
There are lots of places online where you can order food to be delivered straight to your door. Looking for something extra special to order? The famous Milk Bar has special treats just for Mother’s Day. They bake everything fresh, flash freeze it, and cold pack it to deliver to your home.
Get Her Something For Stress Relief
Life has been a little extra chaotic lately. Get her something she can use to unwind—particularly on the day to celebrate her motherhood. Some ideas include:
- Dried Eucalyptus for the Shower
- Bath Bombs for Her Alone Time
- Subscription to Her Favorite Digital Exercise Platform
- Luxurious Loungewear
- Weighted Blanket for Calming Anxiety
Bring Her Some Good News
Even before a global pandemic the news wasn’t the most pleasant or comforting thing to digest. Bring some brightness to her days going forward with a subscription to the Goodnewspaper. Plus, the paper pays it forward. For every month you get a Goodnewspaper, you give a Goodnewspaper to a hospital or classroom.
Become Inspired on Etsy
If you’re at a loss as to what that perfect thing to get is, take a few scrolls through Etsy’s curated Mother’s Day section. They have gifts categorized by type and price. Plus, it feels good ordering from an Esty shop knowing that it’s an independent small business trying to make things work in a challenging economy.
