11 Gifts To Send Mom To Make Her Lockdown Mother’s Day Special

Because Mom needs her spirits lifted, now more than ever.


The Men's Health Team |

Mother’s Day is going to be celebrated rather differently this year. There will be no restaurant lunches, picnics in the park or bonding trips to the spa. If you are fortunate to be living with your mom, you can treat her to breakfast in bed or a special lunch, but for the rest of us, a Zoom or Skype call will have to suffice.

What you can do however, is send mom a gift that will be delivered to her door. The MH team have put together a list of gift ideas we know your mom will love, and that will make the day just a little bit brighter. The good new is they are all available online, but thanks to the lockdown restrictions some might only be able to be  delivered after restrictions are lifted, but why not send her a pic of what it is you have ordered, so she knows what to look forward to!

A Bright Arrangement Of Flowers

I haven’t met a woman yet who doesn’t love flowers! Fresh flowers have been scarce in the shops due to the lockdown so it’s fantastic to see that Netflorist are delivering right now. This burst of pink and purple tulips, roses, sprays, leather leaves and ruscus is presented in a clear flair vase and will make anyone’s day!

A Hamper Straight From The Farmer’s Market

Not what would be considered a regular Mother’s Day treat, but this is no regular Mother’s Day… Order a freshly harvested box of fruit and veggies, plus dairy, eggs, bread and meat – it is probably the most exciting discovery of lockdown. UCook has teamed up with local small sustainable farmers to pack delicious mystery boxes for weekly delivery – seasonal fruit and veggies are complimented by essentials and a few treats, which can be anything from dried fruit to nougat, hummus, pesto or cold meats. Send one to your mama this Mother’s Day for an effortless week of feasting!
