Although finding the perfect gift to send can oftentimes be a conundrum, don't let Mother's Day stress you out. Mom is a special lady, and you can make it a memorable day despite the distance. Here are six Mother's Day gift ideas that will guarantee Mom feels the love.
Give your mom the gift of luxurious locks, and make her feel like a beauty queen for the day. Blow-dry bars, such as Drybar and Blo, offer professional blowouts only (no cuts or color) and are a fun way for Mom to kick off a weekend. Book an appointment at her local blowout salon, and if a nail salon is nearby, arrange an appointment to follow so that she has a day filled with primping and pampering.
Every mom deserves a little R&R, so arrange an out-of-the-ordinary retreat full of fancy frills. Send your mom off to an overnight getaway at a nearby resort hotel for a relaxing day poolside. It may not be a beach vacation, but she'll surely appreciate an opulent escape where an indulgent cocktail and revitalizing facial await. Visit Travelzoo's Local Deals section for local getaways in Mom's area.
Since you can't take your mom to a picnic lunch, arrange for the picnic to come to her instead. Schedule a gift basket delivery from FTD to arrive at her doorstep, filled with all the indulgent picnic essentials: delicious fresh fruit, crackers and cream cheese, snack mix, roasted almonds and more. You can even upgrade the basket to include Columbus salami and San Fran Ghirardelli chocolates!
Is your mother a baking or cooking connoisseur who's mastered how to bake delectable desserts and cook delicious dishes? Help her expand her recipe repertoire and challenge her culinary skills with a new cookbook to add to her collection. Gwyneth Paltrow's "My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness" is filled with favorite family recipes that Mom can welcome into her home as well. Make her really smile and send a cookbook holder or a fun cooking tool from Williams-Sonoma along with the package.
