Mother’s Day 2020 is unlike any Mother’s Day: most of the world is still at home and practicing social distancing. In this strange season, we consider how to celebrate life’s milestones, including how we’ll celebrate our moms on Mother’s Day. Whether your mother is far from home or just a few towns away, she misses seeing your smiling face–and she’s also missing the trip she’d planned, dinners with the family, and weekend treasure hunts. This Mother’s Day, show Mom your love by helping her reclaim some of those moments–even from afar.
Mother’s Day 2020: ideas for virtual celebrations
Tools like Zoom, Skype, and Google Hangouts help us feel more connected by offering face-to-face interactions in real time. Why not take the idea of a virtual meeting and kick it up a notch so that it feels totally different than a regular phone call or Facetime?
Celebrate by enjoying a Mother’s Day brunch or dinner together: prepare the same menus, set beautiful tables, and let the conversation (and wine?) flow. Send Mom a new table runner, like this gold and white one, to create an elegant, inviting setting.
Practical gifts for mom on Mother’s Day 2020
In addition to seeing the world return to some kind of normalcy, so many of us are itching to do two things: a bit of shopping and a bit of nesting. As we approach Mother’s Day 2020, gifts that speak to these urges are practical considering the circumstances.
This is the perfect gift card for the mother who loves to scour boutiques and shops for one-of-a-kind beautiful items for her home. You choose between electronic or mail delivery and Mom shops to heart’s content. Win-win!
Global gifts for the mom who misses traveling
Maybe Mom had to postpone or cancel a trip she was really looking forward to. Send her a note of encouragement to remind her that she will get there someday. Along with your handwritten note, send a small token from that place to keep her sense of wanderlust alive. Fair trade, handmade, and block printed, our designer collections take you on a journey to their sources of inspiration. The gift of Saffron Marigold makes for a unique, global gift indeed.

Elegant gifts for mom
Being at home can be wonderful, but it can also make Mom crave a change of scenery. Help Mom continue gracing her space with inspired pieces filled with meaning and beauty. Artisanal home decor gifts carry even more meaning when Mom learns that the gift was crafted by hand. Best of all, she’ll enjoy decorating her home and using this gift long after Mother’s Day.
Thoughtful gifts for Mom
If you want to “wow” your mom, then send her a gift that celebrates her sense of style and her favorite color. She’ll feel so touched that you remembered which one she likes best. Better still, you know she’ll be able to use this gift somewhere in her home since she probably has at least one room dressed in her favorite hue!
