The Best Mother’s Day Gifts You Can Get Your Mom Online

by Suzanne M. Harvey


Don’t panic but you only have 14 days until Mother’s Day. With stores closed (thanks to the pandemic) you have to get creative with your gift giving and you have to allow time for shipping. I am here to help you win Mother’s day gifting with some of my favorites that are available online.

#1 – Personalized Gifts

Who doesn’t love a personal gift?? Your mom will absolutely love something that was created just for her. Many Etsy makers are still open for business. A quick search and you will find some super cute coffee cups, serving platters (put mom’s best recipe on it) and some beautiful wall art personalized with you and your siblings info or the grandkids (PS – always go with the grandkids…you will totally win!)


#2 – Bath & Beauty Products

Every mom loves bath & beauty stuff. And most of the time they won’t splurge for themselves. So this is the perfect opportunity for you to take care of mom. Maybe a personalized bath salt blend or the premium skincare that mom would never splurge on for herself. And what about a bottle of her favorite perfume. These gifts will be perfect to pamper her on her most special day.

#3 – Audio Books

Is your mom an avid reader? Maybe she loves the library but she can’t go right now. An audio book (or a subscription service) is a great gift. And if mom doesn’t have a tablet – time to go big for mom! She is the best after all.

#4 – Flowers or Plants

I know what your thinking…how original. But there are so many amazing & creative options online for flowers and plants. Check local florists since they can do deliveries (with no contact) and then you are supporting local. This is a favorite for my MIL! We always send her something she can replant in the flower bed and enjoy for a long time.


#5 – Food

Send her a gift card for her favorite restaurant. Then she won’t have to cook on Mother’s day. If you want extra bonus points, call her favorite local restaurant and order dinner for her.

Whatever you decide your mom will love it…because it came from you. Take a little time to get creative and find the best way to spoil your mom on her big day. After all you wouldn’t be here with out her.

And to all my fellow moms out there. Take some time for you – especially on your special day. When you are filled up you can be all the mom you want to be for your family.

Happy Mother’s Day
