9 incredibly cool gifts to ship your mom this Mother’s Day

Just because you might not be able to be together physically doesn’t mean you can’t nail the present!

Unless you live with your mom, it’s safe to say: You probably shouldn’t visit or go out to brunch this year.

Don’t hate the messenger! We’re just trying to keep you safe.

All this social distancing can feel sad sometimes -- like on Mother’s Day, for example -- but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate your mom. Send her something! Hop on FaceTime or Zoom. Get creative!

Maybe you can shower the “mom” in your life (your spouse? Your sister?) in other ways.

Here are some ideas to kick your brain into gear on the gifts front. Remember, you’re going to want to order these items sooner rather than later, considering shipping doesn’t always happen overnight, and some companies are experiencing delays due to low staffing and COVID-19-related issues.

How about ...

Some soup

We found a company called Spoonful of Comfort that will send your mom homemade soup, cookies and rolls. Maybe you could even share the meal together if you have to celebrate remotely. Make yourself a bowl at home, smile knowing she’s taken care of at her house, and catch up at the kitchen table, just like the good old days. Maybe you’ll even forget there’s a laptop separating you two.
