Most of us fall back on the classics when it comes time to buy Mother’s Day gifts: flowers, fancy tea, a card, or a framed piece of kid art. But if you’re missing your mom now more than ever (apparently absence and a worldwide pandemic make the heart grow even fonder), you might want to dig a little deeper. That’s why we created this helpful list of gifts for every kind of mom from artsy moms to fitness moms to moms who love to bake bread. Heck we’ve even picked out something for your favorite dog mom.
Yes, it’s already Mother’s Day and everything here will take at least a few days to ship. But don’t worry, you can still browse below if you feel like sending a belated gift. And in the meantime it’s not too late to give your mom a call or even plan a virtual brunch together. While all of the things on this list are available on Amazon, we’ve found many of them elsewhere, too, for those who like to shop around.
