Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for the Overworked Mom

Mother’s Day is an important time each year to thank your mom for everything she is and does. But this year, we think mom deserves an extra bit of love and affection. With the current world state, parents have had to be full-time teachers, caregivers, and housekeepers, all while juggling their own responsibilities.

This year, make mom feel super special with a token of appreciation that comes from the heart. Whether you’re able to be together or not, we have some great ideas to thank your mom and make her feel loved. Check out these Mother’s Day gift ideas, perfect for the overworked mom:

snail mail


Receiving a handwritten card in the mail will definitely put a smile on Mom’s face. The thought and effort that goes into mailing a card versus a simple text message won’t go unnoticed. Since you may not be able to pick up a card from the store, why not create your own? Get creative with your craft drawer or print one of these 25 Free Printable Mother’s Day Cards from Woman’s Day.

spa essentials


We can almost guarantee what Mom really wants is just a few hours to herself to completely relax. Spas aren’t open, but that doesn’t mean she can’t get the royal treatment. Gather a few spa essentials into a DIY gift basket with bath bombs, epsom salts, and cozy slippers. Don’t forget to include a set of Moisturizing Charcoal Sheet Masks and our Organic Massage Oil to help Mom feel fully pampered!

brunch to go


Although taking Mom out for brunch isn’t an option this year, you can still bring brunch to her! Many restaurants are offering Mother's Day breakfast and brunch delivery either as a set menu or à la carte. Check your favorite restaurants to see what delivery options they have and order Mom a mouthwatering meal right to her doorstep.

baked goods


If Mom has a sweet tooth, you can never go wrong with some freshly baked goods. Whether you make them yourself or get them delivered from her favorite bakery, think of her favorite cookies, muffins, or fresh pastries. You know her best, so gift her with a delicious treat you know she’ll enjoy!



If you can’t be together this year, you can still show Mom you care with the appropriate social distancing guidelines. Whether you order her something special or can only manage homemade cookies and cards, she’ll appreciate the loving gesture either way! Moms are the real deal, so near or far, make sure Mom feels appreciated this Mother’s Day.
