Mother’s Day is a special day where we get to show the important mothers in our lives how much they mean to us. It seems that some of the simplest ways to do this include in-person activities such as cooking for them, helping with errands, taking them out, or giving them gifts.  

But what happens when you live far away from the important person in your life? Or if one of you is feeling under the weather and you can’t celebrate the special day in- person? Fortunately, we have some fabulous online, out-of-the-box Mother’s Day ideas and gifts for you to show mom how much you love and appreciate her! 

Online Mother’s Day Ideas: 

Take a Flower Arranging Class 

Does your mom love gardening and the outdoors? If so, you can spend time learning virtually together about arranging flowers.  

Indulge in Wine Tasting 

Good news! You don’t have to be at a winery or fancy wine bar to enjoy sipping wine and sampling flavors. These days, you can take free virtual wine tastings together.  

Have a Paint & Sip Night 

Are your local paint studios closed? Or are you simply unable to check one out this year with mom? No need to fret, there are plenty of art lessons available virtually. Some options include Yaymaker, Paint Bar, Paint for a Purpose, and Pinot’s Palette.

Have a Virtual Movie Night 

Unable to visit a cinema or snuggle on the couch with snacks together this year? We’ve got a solution. Why not have a Netflix party (or utilize another streaming service) while using Zoom or Skype? You can enjoy some of your favorite Mother’s Day classic movies. Some top-of-mind ideas include Mother’s Day, Stepmom, Mermaids, Terms of Endearment, Mamma Mia!, Steel Magnolias, or Freaky Friday.

Enjoy a Tasty Brunch 

You have a couple of options here when it comes to spoiling mom with delicious food! You can cook together via Zoom and eat together while on webcam. If you’d rather avoid making a mess of the kitchen, why not have her favorite brunch foods delivered to her home via DoorDash or UberEats?  

Virtual Gifts for Mother’s Day: 

Manicure Kit 

Is Mom a big fan of manicures? If so, why not treat her to a virtual one by getting her a manicure kit! This can be a lot more convenient and even less time-consuming than having her visit or make an appointment with her local salon.

Customize a Gift  

What’s more sentimental than a gift that was specifically designed for your mom? Probably not many things. If you’re interested in customizing a digital present for mom, be sure to check out Greetabl. The site allows you to choose a gift box, a present, add family photos, and a personalized message. Voilà! You’re all done. Simple, right? 

Create a Tribute Video 

This online platform, Tribute, allows you to create heartfelt video montages! The process is relatively easy, too. All you need to do is invite family members to record their messages, compile the recordings into a video, and then share it when you’re done! Fair warning, this might cause mom to shed a couple of tears.

Morph Mom into a Fashionista 

Is mom a big fan of keeping up with the latest styles and trends? If so, she’ll love this e-gift card from Stitch Fix. It includes an online style quiz for her to take. Once she’s completed it, she’ll receive a package full of style-curated clothing on her doorstep. You can even send a gift card by email with a customized message if you want more of a personal touch.

Cater to Mom’s Inner Bookworm 

Does your mom enjoy reading books in her free time? If so, an Audible gift membership would be perfect for her! It offers thousands of audiobooks, podcasts, documentaries and more. With this gift, your mom is unlikely to ever find herself bored again… even when she’s cooped up at home.

We hope that these virtual ideas and online gifts proved to be useful for this upcoming Mother’s Day! Wishing a heartfelt, happy, and safe holiday for you and your loved ones!
