1. Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering

2. Or Magnolia Table 2: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering

Joanna Gains is a very busy and popular mama right now! Her new cookbook is huge and beautiful, and filled with a lot of yummy sounding recipes. If you’re quarantined together, you can even make your mom a recipe out of the book for dinner, and give her the book as a gift! (Or make the recipe and drop both the food and the book off on her doorstep for a thoughtful, contact-free gift!)




3. Handmade Facemask

While I wish this was for a beauty product, a lot of states are requiring everyone in public to wear a facemask when out and about. Our moms deserve a stylish mask that helps to protect them during these times (especially if they are at-risk in any capacity!) I love the patterns you can find on Etsy!




3. Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser


Essential Oils are supposed to help with allergies, feeling relaxed, and sleeping better! This particular diffuser has mist control, 7 color-changing options, and it’s BPA-free. You can make Mom feel like she’s at a spa, for a lot less than an actual spa.




5. Personalized Puzzle

I’m not sure if you’ve shopped online for puzzles lately, but most places are sold out! Right now, as I am typing this – Shutterfly is having a site-wide deal, and you can create your own personalized puzzle for under $40! It’s a personalized keepsake, and something to do during quarantine. Win-win!




6. An Amazon Gift Card

Yes, I know this sounds lame, but buying mom a gift card to Amazon will allow her to have a movie night! She can choose any movie to rent or buy – you can deliver her favorite dinner via Grubhub or Doordash, and voila! You’ve given her the perfect girls night, sans-girls.





7. Cute Gardening Tools

Give mom’s gardening tools a little update, These floral tools have great reviews and look super cute!




8. A Wine Caddy for the Shower

Because mom deserves to relax! Grab her a wine caddy for her shower! This is perfect for your own mother, but also your friends who are moms!




9. A Coffee Mug

Amazon has some really funny Mother’s Day mugs! This was my favorite, but here are a couple of other good ones:





10. Did I Mention Wine??


This wine glass with a cute wine opener and a bottle of wine make for a great gift basket!


Or this one!
