Mother’s Day 2021: fresh 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. Still, so many of us are a bit tired of virtual visits, which makes it high time to kick it up a notch. Here are a few ways you can bring a new spin to digital communication 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 2021
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, long distance 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.

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 long distance gift somewhere in her home since she probably has at least one room dressed in her favorite hue!
