If you are looking for ways to make May 10th special for the mothers in your life, check out my post here! For a very special shelter-in-place/covid-19-friendly gift guide – you’ve come to the right place! This list is all ‘confined at home’ friendly – oh the world we live in now! Stay safe everyone.
Right now we are all about social distancing – no more crowded restaurants, or packed hot yoga studios in the near future. But that shouldn’t mean you can’t enjoy a work-out or special meal. The Tesalate towel is the perfect gift for so many women since it is so dynamic. It can be used as a yoga/work-out mat inside or in the backyard, or be the perfect picnic blanket for a family backyard lunch. Whether the mom in your life wants to soak up some spring sun on the back deck solo or lay out a blanket for the whole gang to clammer on – the tesalate is super handy – ultra-absorbent, rapid drying and sand-free. Check out all their trendy patterns here.
Retail stores are closed but that doesn’t mean we can’t go shopping. LuLu’s has a great variety of lounge wear perfect for shelter-in-place at home and not looking like a total slob. If this pandemic has taught me nothing else about myself, it is that I don’t own enough leisure clothing.
They even have those cute tie-dye and camo matching tops and bottoms everyone on Insta seems to be wearing (I know this because I have been spending an excessive amount of time on social media, god help me). I like Lulu’s because their clothing is reasonably priced while still feeling like solid quality. You can even get some really sweet accessories from Lulu’s which make the perfect small package gifts!
Minted has some really great options when it comes to thoughtful and custom gifts for the mom’s in your life. From the comfort of your own computer, create beautiful wall-art and calendars of your family. Grandma’s love this kind of stuff. Minted is also special because it sells unique, beautiful and tasteful accessories like mud cloth organic shoulder bags and artful clutches. If the women in your life are anything like me, they can never have enough bags.
Along with Minted, Mixbook is perfect for photo gifts. I’d recommend Mixbook for customized home decor and other options for beautiful wall art of your family. Creating something special with Mixedbook is super easy and they are currently running a huge discount through April 20th with the promo code CHERISH. Mixbook and Minted both make it so easy to create great, thoughtful and beautiful gifts without leaving your house.
As a mother, I am a huge fan of Earth Mama. If the mom in your life is pregnant or just had a baby, there are some awesome products for her on their site to help her take care of herself and her new baby.
Although I’d go out on a limb and say you shouldn’t be giving women clothing to make their bodies appear differently (touchy subject / slippery slope kind of thing) – Spanx actually has a bunch of other great, high-quality and stylish products like this amazing drape front leather jacket, these faux leather pants, and tons of sophisticated activewear perfect for working out – ya know, in your backyard, living room, or garage these days.
At Home Spoiling
Since we are all stuck at home, close to home, or otherwise supposed to be limiting our socializing – here are a bunch of great gifts perfect for not leaving the house. If your wife, sister, mom or mother-in-law is missing her favorite mani/pedi salon, consider the Miko Shiatsu Foot Massager With Deep-Kneading, this at home Moisturizing Paraffin Bath, this at home nail kit and some fresh polish. I’d also suggest some high-quality Noise Cancelling Headphones for the mom’s who need some space but can’t get it, and a brand new Fire HD 10 Tablet for those moms who want a break to binge some shows in bed or hunker down with a new digital book.
