With the current state of the world, everyone’s priorities have changed. Thinking less about the luxuries in life, and more about the true necessities. Moms more than anyone else, are the ones to always put everyone first before themselves. Considering we have all been spending more time at home and less time dining out, that more often than not means more work for her–although we truly hope not!
So in our minds this year is more important than ever before to celebrate the moms in your life, and we are confident that it will go a LONG WAY. Instead of rounding up all the beautiful glitz and glamorous gifts, like the accessories she’s been wanting, jewelry (which we usually say is a woman’s best friend), and other things alike… this year we are focusing on items we feel are #QuarantineLife approved. Because let’s face it. Life as we know it, has changed. Hopefully not permanently, but all we can do is adapt… for now.
So here are our favourite picks on ways to make Mom feel special, loved, pampered, and equip to whatever quarantine life has had in store–or what she’s been keeping busy with. 😉
Editor’s Picks: Quarantine Life Approved Gifts for Mom this Year
1. 100% Silk Lustrous Beauty Sleep Set

8. Allbirds Dasher Running Shoes (from $175.00)
If the mom in your life has taken the opportunity to keep up her active life, then making sure she equips with the most supportive and comfortable shoe is key. Literally, Allbirds are like walking on clouds. Not only that, but they are breathable and you don’t even need socks! Can you imagine… She can get dressed, slip these on and be out the door in minutes.
9. Staub Cast Iron Round Cocotte (from $399.99)
Many have been spending more and more time in the kitchen these days. For some eating, and for others cooking… if the mom in your life has been doing more of the latter, you may want to consider investing in something that can make her life easier. This iconic Staub cocotte works wonders–and will last a lifetime. So it’s definitely worth the investment–and looks great on the kitchen counter top too. 😉
10. Ninja Foodi Hot & Cold Blender (from $159.99)
If the mom in your life is super into blended drinks, and maybe has been complaining about not having a blender, or processor, and wanting to be able to make some smoothies and more… the Ninja is exactly what she needs. With a slightly smaller profile then the other well known competitor (that will remain unnamed ;)), it also works wonders and this Foodi also works for both Hot AND Cold drinks. Imagine that…
11. Hello 123 isolish Pre-fixed Dinner for a Date Night In (from $120.00)
Get mom a night off from the kitchen. Not just on Mother’s Day (because there are only so many meals to gift that day, and those are a given) but on another night of the week TOO. Surprise her with a isolish 4-course prefixed meal from a local hotspot like Hello 123.
Wishing all the moms an amazing mother’s day.
