This year a lot of you might be celebrating Mother’s Day a little different than you’re used to. You can still make sure she has a great one even you can’t b in the presence of each other. A simple phone or video call could make her day but a gift to show her how much she is appreciated could make it even greater. Long gone are the days of making homemade cards. Here I’ve listed eight, kind of random, kind of last-minute, gift ideas for this quarantine Mother’s Day.
If you don’t know what an echo show is, let me explain. It’s basically a way for you to connect with your loved ones virtually with a touch of a button or a simple Alexa command. You can also set it to show photos, like a digital photo album. Or use it to show you security cameras, control lights, and adjust any thermostats (with compatible devices of course). Right now they’re on sale for $79.99 or you can get the Echo Show 5 for $49.99
Amazon offers gift cards of all kids not just to use on their site. With a lot of us still staying home, I know I’m not the only one who has been participating in online shopping. This is the perfect gift if you’re buying for someone who isn’t your mom but you still want to show them they’re appreciated.
Create an At-Home Spa Treatment
This one is self-explanatory and could cost you little to nothing. Get a tub for your mom to soak her feet in, get some pedicure and manicure utensils, and treat her like the queen she is. You can go a little further and apply a gentle face mask for her as well. A lot of the things you need for an at-home spa treatment could be items you already have or some you can purchase at an affordable price. If you can’t be near your mom, have all the items shipped to her via amazon!
I’ve been eyeing this prayer journal for a while and the ratings on it are great. It has scriptures, journaling prompts, and reflections on the word. It comes in a spiral-bound for $23.77 or paperback for $9.99. This gift is perfect for the mother that is always praying for you.
If your mom is a wine connoisseur then she will appreciate this one for sure! It’s also a nice kitchen gadget to have around for guests. This gadget allows the process of aeration much simpler and you know what that means..faster access to better tasting wine! Lol. Right now it’s $33.99.
When I saw this, I was immediately happy, especially for the price. Right now I just open my dishwasher and let the steam hit my face or let the steam from the pot of whatever I’m cooking hit. Moms know what I’m talking about! We make do. But make do no more! Gift one of these to any mom you know cares about her skincare and I’m sure they’ll love it. Get it right now for 36.99.
I don’t know about you but my family and I go through eggs like we own chickens. Boiled, scrambled, poached, in some tuna, in some ramen, YOU NAME IT! Lol. In all seriousness when I saw this on TikTok (yes, I’m on TikTok.) I immediately added it to my wish list. I love a perfectly boiled egg and most of the time my timing is off. This egg cooker claims to get it right every time. Right now it’s on sale for $17.67.
I think this one will for sure bring tears to your mom’s eyes. You might have seen these in a Facebook video or on your Instagram feed. This one comes fully assembled, all you have to do is paste your own photos. This is a unique and fun way to keep photos since a lot of us have gone digital. You can get it now for $18.99.
If you are like me and are a procrastinator, I hope this list helped spark some gift ideas for you. If you’ve already bought for your mom, these gifts are still perfect for any occasion. If you don’t think your gift will ship in time, just let your mom know it’s coming and you didn’t just get her a kiss, a hug, and a card.
To those of you who have lost your mother, I know this holiday must be hard for you. I pray you to make it through the day and think of all the things she taught you and remember the wonderful person she created you to be.
To all the mothers and mother figures out there I want to say you are appreciated whether they tell you or not. That happiness you see when their stomachs are full everyday or when you’ve just given them a bath and they go hop in their bed — that’s gratitude.
Whether you are raising toddlers or teens, or if your children are grown, whether you have lost your child or your child is ill, you are a great mother, God chose you to be their mother and they wouldn’t replace you for anything in the world. Don’t ever forget that. Motherhood is tough but we’re tougher!
