Day who knows of quarantine is here, filled with attempting to understand our second grader’s homework, trying all the stay-home activities we can think of, and long wish lists of things to do and people to see once it’s safe to do so. You’ve got a lot on your plate!
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we’re sharing our favorite gift ideas that can give moms a moment to relax, enjoy, and take a break from the day-to-day flurry.
1. Get Cozy in Comfy PJs
While we’re in a world where we take off our daytime pajamas to put on our night time pajamas, we can’t think of anything better than an extra-fancy set that feels like pure luxury. We love this set from Lunya – and she will, too.
2. Restaurant a la Home
Finally, a restaurant where you can always get the best seat in the house! Get the kids in on the fun and recreate Mom’s favorite restaurant right at home. Create a menu, set the table, impart a dress code, and have kids play roles of waiter, chef, and busser. Treat her to an unforgettable meal that the whole family will love playing a part in.
3. Bring Out Her Inner Artist
If mom has been looking for a creative outlet, these adult paint-by-numbers are pretty enough to hang up in the home and show off when finished.
4. The Perfect Perk-Me-Up
This may feel like a bit of a cliche, but nothing beats a gorgeous fragrance that offers a quick escape. These scents from Maison Margiela were created to invoke memories of favorite pastimes like walks on the beach, heading to the farmer’s market, and even sailing overseas. Dreamy, right?
5. Endorphins Make Her Happy!
If Mom’s been missing her favorite workout class, almost all gyms are offering some type of online subscription. Places like Peloton, Tracy Anderson Method, CorePower Yoga, and obe Fitness are offering amazing online classes. Pair it with a workout set from her favorite store, and dedicate an hour or your day set aside to let her work out in peace! Best. Gift. Ever.
6. Caffeine, Stat
Because Mommy needs her coffee, like, all day long (we know we do). This easy-to-use espresso machine makes the perfect cup, complete with a milk frother for that latte she’s been craving for the last couple of months.
7. Flowers That Last… and Last… and Last
We know, we know… flowers. But hear us out – these incredible bouquet of roses last up to an entire year! We love that they can be an everyday reminder of the love and appreciation your family feels for her.
