Mother's Day Gifts When You Can't Be There In Person

Mother's Day Gifts When You Can't Be There In Person

Mother’s Day is a day to say thank you to all the mums and step-mums out there. It’s a day we can all show our appreciation for the many years of support, love and wisdom our mum has given us throughout our lives. Many families gather for a family brunch or long-lunch where mum can enjoy having the family together and she doesn’t have to cook!

This year will be very different from the Mother’s Days of the past. With the COVID-19 threat still real and self-distancing laws in place, many of us won’t be able to see our mum on Mother’s Day. Although many things will be different, one thing will stay the same - she will still want to spend quality time with her family, even if it’s via video call. So while you are arranging your Mother’s Day family skype, facetime or house party - don’t forget to buy her a special Mother’s Day gift as well.

One of the benefits of Gifting Owl is that you can leisurely browse online to find the perfect gift. Without the option of popping in and out of your local gift stores, you can pop onto your computer and do it all from your home in one streamlined process - find, buy, send.

In this article we’ve written the best Mother’s Day gift ideas you can buy online to be delivered to her in time for her special occasion.

1. Travel Gift Card

If your mum loves to explore new places and cultures, we’re sure she's itching to book a flight as soon as travel bans are lifted. And if she’s also famous for spontaneously booking flights, you probably don’t know where she'll fly to first. 

Gifting Owl travel gift cards are ideal for frequent flyer mums, as they can use them in over 115 countries! Simply head on over to the gift voucher page, enter the amount you’d like to spend, write mum a nice Mother’s Day message and send! Giving a travel gift card to mum this Mother’s Day will fill her with excitement, especially when she sees the variety of world-class experiences on offer.

If you’d rather select an experience to give mum yourself, we recommend browsing our landmarks & attractions category for that bucket list experience she’s been talking about for years. If she’s the kind of traveller who enjoys immersing herself in local culture and meeting the community, we recommend our authentic culinary category. These aren’t any old cooking experiences, but an invitation to cook and dine with a local in their home. 

There’s no need to worry if she’ll ever get to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower or if she would rather see the Colosseum instead. Whether you choose a gift voucher or an experience gift, mum can use her voucher on any experience on Gifting Owl. 

2. Local Small Business Gift Voucher

This time of self-isolation and quarantine means that we are all starting to miss the simple pleasures in life, like heading down to our favourite coffee shop, or dining at our favourite Italian restaurant. A great gift idea for Mother’s Day and a way to support small local businesses is to purchase a gift voucher for mum to treat herself once they reopen.

3. Pamper Packages

The impacts of Corona Virus can be felt everywhere, even if you don’t contract it yourself. This turbulent time has us more worried about our health, our loved ones and our financial security. There has been no better time to gift mum a pamper package than this Mother’s Day. 

Whether you choose a massage, facial or full-day spa package, mum will be grateful for the opportunity to relax and enjoy a much needed day of self-care. 

4. Family Experience Gift Voucher

This gift idea should come as no surprise. What mum loves the most is quality time with her family - so a family-friendly experience gift is a no brainer! Whether she would prefer whale watching, high tea, sailing or mountain biking - there is an experience the whole family will enjoy. 

It’s a shame that we can’t all be there to celebrate in person with mum this Mother’s Day.

We hope you’ve now found a Mother’s Day gift that’ll brighten her day, and that you and your family are reunited soon!

Happy Gifting!
