It’s a little tricky getting things together for Mother’s Day this year. Shipping times are unpredictable, most stores are still closed, and you might feel like you’re running out of ideas. Don’t worry! We’ve tried our best to put together some gift ideas with local businesses in mind as well as any DIY projects you can do to send a heartfelt message to that mom in your life.

DIY and personal touches
Sweets + treats gift box
Put together some treats for a personalized gift box! Order some cookies from Bang Cookies, a pint of ice cream, from Milk Sugar Love, and maybe a bottle of wine from CoolVines along with any other sweets your mom loves.
If you have some old family photos on hand and other nostalgic items, why not create a cute memory box? You can get creative by making it an explosion box filled with photos or fill a box with notes retelling your favorite memories with the mom in your life.
Virtual happy hour
Try your hand at mixing cocktails, maybe even follow a tutorial by local bartenders, or enjoy some wine and catch up on video chat with your mom. Moms like a bit of a quality time, and who doesn’t want a drink to wind down at a time like this?
Breakfast in bed
If you live with your mom or live close enough to treat her to a home-cooked meal, whip up her favorite breakfast or order breakfast from her favorite spot if they’re open for pickup/delivery! Nothing says “I love you” like “here’s your favorite food at the start of your day.”
Virtual dinner and a movie
Spend some quality time with the mom in your life with a virtual dinner date. Order dinner from a local spot, pick a movie to watch together via Skype (or another video-chatting service), and enjoy the night in each other’s virtual company.
