Showing your mother that you love and appreciate her can be difficult in a time of social distancing. But this is one holiday that you just can’t miss! This Mother’s Day Gift Guide will help you find something extra special for your favorite mom.
Does your mother create delicious homemade meals but deserve a night off? Does your mother miss the relaxing time spent at the spa or salon? Maybe your mother has a giving spirit and would rather pay her gift forward. Whichever mom you have, we got her covered!
For the mother who never fails to cook delicious meals for the family, treat her to a night off! However, we understand that cooking isn’t the easiest and mom deserves a well prepared dinner. Meal kits are convenient because you don’t have to brave the grocery store, as they offer pre-portioned ingredients shipped to you (or your mom’s) door. Hello Fresh is perfect for beginners and the recipe cards are clear and easy-to-follow, making assembly a breeze! Home Chef offers meals that are oven-ready with the oven-safe pan included, which is great for the whole family. For the environmentally-conscious, Sun Basket uses high quality ingredients in recyclable and compostable packaging.
For the mother who visits the salon regularly, we suggest a hair color touch up kit from her favorite salon, like Hair By Damian. Hair By Damian knows their client’s needs and has begun offering at home kits suited to cover grays and roots, with the same professional ingredients that you would find in their salon. Dallas Beauty Lounge is selling more products online now more than ever! They offer great haircare products as well as mystery bags for a fun surprise. Reach out to your mom’s local hair salon and ask them to create her hair color kit for a special treat!
For the mother who loves to relax while keeping her skin fresh and healthy, we suggest a spa kit! For those who like to Do It Yourself, add a personal and heartfelt touch with the DIY Spa in a Box from Brit + Co. Brit + Co utilizes all natural ingredients that you can pick up from your local grocery store in time to deliver on Sunday! We love the Lavender Butter Cream Body Scrub because the recipe calls for mixing in the petals of a rose bud – so cute! If you aren’t creative, we suggest the Olga Lorencin Skin Care Red Carpet Facial in a Box. This professional kit includes a facial peel, facial neutralizer, facial polishing mask, applicator brush and treatment bowl. It has everything your mom needs to get glowing skin without visiting the spa!
Leaving the house is inevitable and your mother should be protected. Why not stay safe in style? Party Mosaic has recently launched Made By Mosaic – a line of linens, napkins, seat cushions, drapes, and now face masks with one-of-a-kind designs that you won’t find anywhere else! As a bonus, when you purchase sets of Made By Mosaic face mask, a portion of each sale will be donated to the World Health Organization and Pittsburgh Food Bank.
For the selfless mother who wants to give back, many local businesses have made it easy to pay it forward! Cheeks Lingerie has announced the Cheeks Comfort Project, which donates gift bags with comfy and cozy items to frontline nurses fighting COVID-19. For a small donation of $10 (or more if you choose) Lombardo’s To Go and Common Plea Catering will deliver meals to local hospitals or first responder’s in your mom’s name! Send our brave healthcare professionals love and fuel those working as hard on the front lines! Shawna Gohel has organized a Go Fund Me to Feed Our Frontline & Save SF Restaurants for those who are want to support businesses in San Fransisco. Make a donation as a gift to honor mom. And because so many restaurants are hurting, consider purchasing a gift card for your mom from her favorite dining spot. Our favs in the 412 include: Square Cafe (also offering a Mother’s Day meal option), Spirits & Tales, and Scratch Food & Beverage.
We know every family marks milestones in their own way, and for many, times are hard for now. But someday soon, we will be together again. Celebrate your mom when your community reopens – and let us inspire your decor! Our linens are available in a variety of shades and styles, perfect for late spring or summer fetes – check out our new Dusty Rose Silk Chiffon Runner (also great as a chair sash), our classic White Panama, and the refreshing Light Olive Lamour at this gorgeous gathering! We have plenty of options from which to choose, for any type of celebration.
So for now, give your chef mom, spa mom, or charitable mom something special on Mother’s Day. And for later, give your mom the mother’s day party we all know she wants!
