15 Mother's Day Gifts to Send if You Can't Be There in Person This Year
Thanks to mom, memorable weeknight meals, special birthday cakes, holiday casseroles, as well as warm after-school bakes all hold a special place in our hearts — not to mention, stomachs. And every year, we always work to give back and say thanks in some small way to our moms on Mother's Day weekend.
This Mother's Day, however, may be a little different than past ones. While we still love mom, many may not be able to celebrate in-person. No matter if mom is down the street or across the coast, we have a variety of gifts that you can ship to her if you can't be here this year. To us, each gift is a memorable one.
Fresh fruit and fresh flowers for mom on her special day is a traditional Mother's Day gift to bestow on the world's best mom. However, this year's pick is shipper friendly with an assortment of fresh fruits, fresh-cut roses as well as ribbon customization options.
Surely mom would adore a durable and long-lasting cast iron set that comes in the shape of springtime blooms, such as this flower-shaped cast iron Dutch oven with two baby Ramekins from Le Creuset. Not into pink petals? This set also blooms in Hibiscus pink and Soleil yellow.
A Classic Favorite
Whining about not being with mom this Mother's Day won't get you too far when it comes to picking out her present. Wine (and chocolates) however just might be the ideal pair to send. We love the idea of sending mom sweet chocolate, fruit, nuts, cheese, and and wine for her special day.
Meals to Me
Of course, mom is a true beast in the kitchen, but does she want to cook every day? No way! Sending mom a gift certificate to select her own pre-prepped meals from Home Chef is the gift to give when she wants a day off from the kitchen.
A Touch of Texas
Setting the scene for a summer of fresh farm to farmhouse foods would be Joanna Gaines' latest cookbook, Magnolia Table Vol.2. Any mom, aunt, or grandmother would love to whip up some of Joanna's dishes such as her Creamy Chicken Poblano Soup as well as a Lemon Lavender Tart.
Of course, mom is sweet, we all know that. Gifting her a delicious mailer that will satisfy her sweet tooth is not always easy. This Sugarfina candy tasting box, however, is a combination of the sweetest confectionaries, such as champagne bubbles, sugar lips, ice cream cones, and other fancy toffies.
Just because you can't personally be there to pamper mom this year, does not mean you can't dispatch some self-care items. This whimsical flutter robe from Plum Pretty Sugar is just what every stylish momma needs when seeking a little 'me-time.'
aIt's no secret that mom juice is coffee in any format. These adorable caffeinated gummy bears that come packaged inside a reusable tumbler are perfect for mom's caffeine needs. If you're looking for a 'pick-me-up' to send to mom this holiday, this is your set.
Gone are the days of twisting corkscrews by hand or even worse, not being able to get the cork fully out of the wine bottle. Gifting mom an electric corkscrew is yes, easy to wrap and ship, but it's also a gift she'll use often. Pro-tip: include a bottle of her favorite vino or a decorative wine topper for a present that really speaks to your mamma's love language.
Grow a Little
This botanical bar set has everything any mum needs to grow her own organic mint seeds as well as a wood muddler and a stainless steel jigger which in return will make the most delicious mint mojitos.
Play on Words
Did you know that "M.O.M" is an acronym for "Makes Outstanding Meals?" Jokes aside, any mom that spends the day inside her kitchen needs a fresh apron to throw on and get her meals done! We love the fact that this apron has a spacious front pocket. It is also machine washable.
Scream for These
Now more than ever, we are all picking up new pastimes to well, pass the time. Gifting mom a cute ice cream party theme gift box is just that, a great time. This set includes a petite Dash Ice Cream Maker, an aluminum ice cream scoop, four ice cream petite bowls, and a stripe Punctuate kitchen towel. Ah, so very cute!
Love This Glove
In a well-loved kitchen, kitchen towels and oven mitts are usually the first things to turn dingy. An easy gift to send mom is a fresh set of kitchen towels and matching oven mitts. Remember to select something cheerful like a bright lemon print. It is just the spring-time spruce mom's kitchen needed.
Sustainability is always in-season. We know mom is not always house-bound. In fact, she's rather busy. When the time does come for her to get back to her full schedule, a chic, washable, and reusable lunch tote will be her new go-to accessory.
Currently, the pantry is the house's most popular hub. After all, it's the place where all the beans, pasta, cereal, and non-perishables go to chill. The book My Pantry is an insightful look into how to curate a powerhouse pantry. In return, readers will learn insights to cook amazing meals from their home pantries. Plus, the colorful illustrations make this a practical as well as a purposeful gift to send to momma.
