If there was any year when moms deserve some really great Mother’s Day presents, it’s this year. She’s probably been juggling working from home, grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, homeschooling, and keeping everyone safe while trying not to loose her mind. You owe her. Here are some gift ideas to get you started on your shopping but don’t dawdle. Mother’s Day is May 10th and shipping is taking a little longer than usual from some retailers.

I love the color combination of this perfect rain jacket. It’s perfect for the mom who likes to take a walk every day rain or shine. But it’s also available in more traditional colors if mint isn’t for her.

If your mother’s skin is looking as stressed out as she is, I suggest buying her this Dr. Barbara Sturm Skin Care Discovery Set.

Help elevate your mother’s Instagram tabletop game with this set of four Mixed Dessert Plates.

These rubber Birkenstock sandals sold out everywhere last summer. Show mom you care by getting her a pair while they are still available.

If she has to slave over the stove for you, the least you can do is upgrade her cookware. Le Crueset makes the Rolls-Royce of pots and pans which also happen to be on sale so you have no excuse to get her some.

If your mom could stand to add a few new recipes to her repertoire, you can’t go wrong with Cook Like a Pro: Recipes and Tips for Home Cooks: A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook.

I love eight minute hard boiled eggs but I hate standing in the kitchen waiting for the water to boil. I also always misjudge the time and they come out over done so I ordered the Easy Electric Egg Poacher, Omelet, Scrambled, Soft, Medium, Hard-Boiled Boiler Cooker. I mentioned it to a friend and she knew exactly what I was talking about because her mother bought one too so it’s an officially mom approved gadget that’s only $14.99.

It’s rare when a mom treats herself to new dishtowels and potholders and this Citron Kitchen Linens Bundle also includes an apron. There are other combinations available in case she doesn’t actually need all those items.

There is no one I find more calming and soothing than Monty Don. If your mom is a gardener, she will love his book The Complete Gardener: A Practical, Imaginative Guide to Every Aspect of Gardening that was just released a few months ago.

These Long Floral Garden Gloves will keep your mom’s hands protected when she wrings your neck for annoying her and in the garden.

The chic mom who sets an elegant table would appreciate these set of three Nesting Raffia Bowls.

Give mom a chic place to store her hand sanitizer and masks with this wicker bag.

Calgon used to take her away. Now it’s this Herbivore Natural Coco Rose Luxe Hydration Trio and All Natural Coconut Milk Bath Soak.

Let her escape from her current messy life with Lady in Waiting: My Extraordinary Life in the Shadow of the Crown. Add Daughter of Empire: My Life as a Mountbatten to it and then listen Lady Pamela discuss her amazing life with her daughter on India Hicks Podcast.

Elevate her hand washing with this Claus Porto Mini Soaps Gift Set of fabulously scented soaps.

Make mom feel like she’s at the spa with this Micro Waffle Detail Cotton Robe. I also like the Long Lightweight Waffle Robe but it has less sizes available.

Since most all hair salons are closed, I think mom would really appreciate this Dyson Supersonic Fuchsia Hair Dryer Set.

At the end of a long quarantine day, mom deserves to relax with a glass of wine and a nice Diptyque Baies Candle. Just make sure you don’t bother her while she’s enjoying them.

This pastel Milano Backgammon Set will revive her competitive nature and give the whole family a new game to play together.

Everyone is ready to burn their loungewear and pajamas about now so how about buying her a new set like this navy long-sleeve cotton pajama set. It’s also available in pink.

No one can get their eyebrows groomed either so I’m sure she’d love this Anastasia Best Brows Ever Set.

Since the eyes are all that can be seen when wearing a mask, they would look great made up with this Tom Ford Eye Color Quad. It’s also available in 15 other colors.

Help mom get ready for summer with this Cane Drinkware Collection.

I just bought The Silver Swan: In Search of Doris Duke and it’s perfect for any mother who loves to read about interesting women.

I can’t think of any mother who would turn her nose up at this La Mer Mini Miracle Broth Collection set. Heck, I might even buy one for myself.

The old school mom would love this blue woven nightgown but it’s also available in white. It’s currently 25% off too.

The European loving gardener will appreciate this book, English Gardens: From the Archives of Country Life Magazine.

Mom’s hands are probably dry from all the hand washing. Why not buy her a few tubes of my favorite lotion, Weleda Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Cream.

This Oiseau Pitcher is perfect for pouring drinks but you could also give it to your mom with a bouquet of flowers so she can use it as a vase.

Cocktail hour has made a comeback so why not gift mom with this set of four Poppy Embroidered Cocktail Napkins and her favorite drink of choice.

If your mother needs some new bread recipes, I bet she would love Tartine: Revised Edition: A Classic Revisited: 68 All-New Recipes + 55 Updated Favorites.

If she needs to work off all the bread she’s eaten after baking, I still love this Backslash Fit Smart Yoga Mat: Long 5mm Thick Self-Rolling Non Slip Yoga Mat.
