We can’t even tell you what day of the week it is, never mind what month it is. So, it’s a huge feat that we haven’t missed Mother’s Day completely. Lucky for us (and all the rockstar moms in our lives), we figured things out just in the nick of time. Ahem, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 10. Here are 18 thoughtful gifts that can be shipped directly to her doorstep or sent via email to ensure a last-minute, yet definitely on-time delivery.
She’s spending so much time at home these days that she can’t stop thinking of home improvement projects (same!). Gift her a one-on-one consultation with an interior designer, from the comfort of her own home, so she can turn her Fixer Upper obsession into reality. Choose from either a Havenly Mini ($79), which will let her refresh any room or the Havenly Full ($129), which will allow her to completely redesign an entire room.
There’s just no denying the beauty of a classic Mother’s Day standby. The Bouqs Co. offers gorgeous blooms (like this flower assortment with plantable succulents) for one-time delivery as well as a monthly flower subscription, since, TBH, every day is Mother’s Day in her world.
With virtual classes that include cooking with Gordon Ramsey, photo sessions by Annie Leibovitz and even tennis lessons with world champion, Serena Williams, there’s truly a Master Class for every mom out there. And since we’re stuck at home, there’s no better time to learn a new skill. Each class includes on-demand videos that can be viewed at her own pace, plus a class workbook with optional assignments and an online student community. Choose to send an electronic gift card immediately via email, or on a specific date (reminder: it’s May 10).
Four times per year, a FabFitFun box will get sent directly to her doorstep, with wellness, beauty and lifestyle products centered around a seasonal theme. Each shipment contains over $200 worth of products she’ll actually use (think packing cubes, face masks, slippers and more) for just $45.
Winc’s annual summer rosé subscription is back for another season, which means you should give mom the gift of all the rosé she can drink from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Every month, she’ll get a shipment of the brand’s signature Summer Water range (from rosé to bubbles to a chillable red). Here’s to hoping you can enjoy a glass or two with her this summer, even if it’s via FaceTime.
Choose the type of coffee, the delivery schedule and the number of shipments. Because while she definitely misses you, she really misses her morning coffee run.
Give her a year of Disney+ and she’ll have endless TV for the grandkids to watch when she babysits. And yes, it’s totally fine to ask her to share the login, so the whole family can watch movies “together” from afar.
Stressful times call for stress-relieving measures and that’s exactly what these moisturizing bath fizzies deliver. Infused with jojoba, safflower and hemp seed oils, plus a light scent of jasmine and rose, they’ll leave her skin feeling soft and send her anxiety packing.
This famous Boston-based pastry shop typically has a line down the block and for good reason: its cannoli are to die for. Deliver everything mom needs to assemble her own treats (just be sure to select expedited shipping at checkout). The kit includes enough supplies to make ten of Mike’s Pastry’s cannoli. And you can choose from plain or chocolate ricotta filling and then let her customize with toppings including confectioners’ sugar, pistachios and chocolate chips.
Back in the good old days, she had a standing facial appointment once a month. But after she uses this two-step microneedling device, she might never go back to her monthly habit. The at-home treatment addresses every major skincare concern: fine lines, enlarged pores, pigmentation, dryness, dullness and uneven skin tone, by creating tiny channels in the skin that boost collagen production and allow the serum to penetrate deeper.
She had to cancel her big trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands, but she’s most definitely rebooking when it’s safe to do so. And she’s going to need a new beach bag when that day comes. This chic straw tote will fit all the essentials—she might even start using it to carry her laptop from room to room.
Desperate times, right? While two cans of beans (or two bottles of wine) are more than acceptable forms of workout equipment these days, this popular fitness brand has real exercise equipment that can be at her doorstep in two days. From resistance bands to a thigh-shaping ball, she’s sure to use this kit long after quarantine is over. Bonus: P.volve is currently offering a free 30-day membership of its streaming service for new users.
The thermostat struggle has never been more real with the two of them home 24/7. But with these cozy slippers at the ready, she’ll be comfortable no matter who wins.
Going on month two at home, there’s no doubt she’s burned through a candle or two. This set comes with two popular fragrances, so she’ll be stocked up for the next few weeks (at least).
If your mom has too many lipsticks to count, it’s time to get her a wearable lipstick holder. It’s the type of gift she’d never buy herself but will find extremely useful—especially with her current packed schedule of Zoom meetings.
By now, everyone is sick of wearing the same three outfits on repeat, but what else is there to wear? Turns out, Stitch Fix can help. An instant digital gift card will get her access to a personal stylist who can help her discover her best wardrobe ever, from the comfort of her own home.
Photobooks are lovely but making them can be tedious. That’s why Chatbooks created a subscription that sends a personalized mini photo book each month, based on the pics in her camera roll. All she has to do is take two quick minutes to open the app and select which photos she wants to feature. She’ll enjoy having actual copies of all her best photos to show guests the second quarantine lifts.
So, you can’t go out for your annual mother-daughter manicure this Mother’s Day, but you can take a virtual class with beloved non-toxic NYC studio, Sundays. For just $15, she’ll get access to a mani class, gel removal class or nail art class via a private, one-on-one Zoom call. Ah, the power of technology.
