Give Your Mom Something She Will Love for Mother’s Day

April 22, 2020

This year with retail stores closed and the whole quarantine thing … Mother’s Day Gifts will take a little planning ahead. Get started early this year. Your mom is probably working overtime, or in lockdown needing a reminder of how much you love her… either way, start planning today.

If you like to get personal

Shop Forward – 4 Things Tote – I got this for my mom for Christmas and she loved it. Find 4 things your mom loves and show her that you really were thinking of her. You can also feel good that the proceeds go to expectant moms in rural Haiti through Project Medishare. TIME SENSITIVE – ORDER BY 4/24

Mark & Graham – I love Mark & Graham for a pretty personal gift. They have a whole mother’s day shop for you to choose from. And don’t forget to have them wrap it for you! TIME SENSITIVE – ORDER BY 5/3

BoomBox – Digital Boom – Last year I made the paper version for my mom for a big birthday, and it did not disappoint. This year the company is offering a digital version and it can be done in 2 weeks, so what are you waiting for! Get 20% off with code DIGITAL20. TIME SENSITIVE – Get started by 4/24

Minted – Carry-All Personalized Bag – A fun little bag for mom with a personalized nameplate to keep it personal. I love the Lemon Bag, but there are several options. Save 20% right now.

If you want to keep things Fresh

Who Doesn’t Love Fresh Flowers?

Morey Hill Farm – If you love to support small businesses and want to send something beautiful – this is a small flower farm in Craftsbury, Vermont. (a town close to my heart)

Bouq’s – Explore beautiful bouquets from small flower farms to make your mom smile. Farm-fresh and eco-friendly. Use MOMFLOWERS to save 25%

Would your Mom Rather have Something Savory?

Jasper Hill Farm Not only do they make my favorite Cheese, but they are also dear friends and an award-winning small business I am more than happy to support. (It’s rough eating fabulous cheese to support friends, but I am willing to do it!) There is The World Central Kitchen Collection, that not only has my favorite cheeses but also gives 10% to the World Central Kitchen, and The Diversion to keep your mom distracted from being on lockdown. If these pictures are making your mouth water, order one for yourself too!

Some other Fun Presents

Paper-Source – Paper Source always has fun things for mom. Check out their mother’s day shop for fun ways to pamper your mom.

Petite Plume – Since your mom is probably spending more time in her Pajamas than usual, give her the gift of a beautiful new set she will be proud to rock on a FaceTime call.

Swoozies – This is one of my favorite stores to go for gifts when I visit Denver, but they also have a fabulous website. Give mom a beautiful book to keep her entertained.

Don’t forget to get started now to get it to mom on time!
