For all the mamas out there, this season has been especially challenging. Stay-at-home moms suddenly have a full house 24/7. Working moms now have to juggle Zoom meetings and homeschooling. Everyone’s eating nearly every meal at home, which means cooking and/or cleaning up after every meal.
If personal time for mamas was precious before, under quarantine it’s become almost nonexistent - and that’s why especially thoughtful Mother’s Day Gifts for 2020 are extra-important. Show the mamas in your life some love, and gift them something from our Top 10 Best Mother’s Day Gifts below.
1. Wine Club Membership

I mean… You can’t go wrong with a box (or six) of wine. We like Winc for their fun tasting quiz, and for their easy “Gifting” option at checkout.
2. Skincare Set

Who doesn’t need a new serum? We’re pretty obsessed with Drunk Elephant (for both their formulas, and for their product names).
3. New Pool Floats

Nothing’s better than a long float in the pool, tropical drink in hand. So naturally, our newest pool floats make the Top 10 best Mother’s Day Gifts list! Get mom a set of five so she doesn’t have to deal with the kiddos fighting over them later this summer.
4. Facials & Spa Treatments
Yes, we know they’re not open right now. But if you have a mom who likes to pamper herself, do her (and your local spa) a favor and book that next appointment for her. We love Heyday for their pop-in-on-your-lunch-break un-stuffiness, but you can also call around your local day spas - many are offering deals for advanced bookings. Bonus if she can bring her own pool float.
5. Restaurant Meal Kits (Not Prepared by Her)
Many local restaurants are offering to-go meal kits as a way to stay in business. Check to see if any of her favorite spots are doing this (we recommend calling restaurants directly, as many are doing Mother’s Day specials or would be happy to put something together for you regardless). For our NYC readers, check out Blue Hill (fancy!), Doughnuttery (fun!), or Katz’s Deli (meat sweats!).
6. Face Masks

No, the other kind. COVID19 have you on a budget? While we can guarantee that with mom, it’s definitely the thought that counts, we also know she’ll appreciate a basket full of skin-soothing sheet masks. We love Bliss’s collection of fun textures and scents - definitely a must-have on our Top 10 Best Mother’s Day Gifts list.
7. Luxurious Spa Robes

We may be stuck at home, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the spa to mom! Gift her a big fluffy robe, then start pouring mimosas. Both the classic and waffle robes from Parachute are to-die-for.
8. Classic Flowers
Stuck quarantining across the country from your mom? Flowers are a classic for a reason. We love Farmgirl Flowersfor their organic practices and absolutely gorgeous arrangements. Their customer service is also second-to-none.
9. Silk Pillowcases

Maybe what mom wants, more than anything, is a full night of sleep (shoutout to the newborn moms). Get her a set of Slip silk pillowcases to keep her day-four quarantine hair looking fresh as a daisy.
