It feels like a strange time to be writing a new gift guide. Nothing feels normal and it seems odd to be going through the usual motions of celebrating holidays as if nothing has changed from the last time we celebrated. Life is different now and we are all still coming to terms with it, and that’s okay. Whatever your situation is right now, we wanted to provide you with options because Mother’s Day 2020 is sneaking up!
To all the moms out there working ten times as hard during quarantine, we see you and we appreciate everything you do. Now more than ever is the time to let the moms and mother figures in our lives know how much we care about them! So let’s show our appreciation the best way we can and hope for brighter days to come when we can celebrate moms the way they truly deserve.
Due to our current circumstances, we’re limited in terms of gift-hunting as stores remain closed and not all businesses are operating at full capacity. That being said, we are lucky to be blessed with a little tool called the Internet. We curated our favorite online picks that we think most moms would love. Though it’s not about how much money you spend or what presents you buy, you can still show your mom a little love and appreciation with a nice gift that can be enjoyed at home.
Mad Hippie Vitamin A Serum $32.99 USD
This is a great gift whether you have a skincare-obsessed mom or not. A simple but effective serum is the perfect addition to a daily routine. This top-rated anti-aging serum from Mad Hippie exfoliates and fights wrinkles but is gentle enough to avoid irritating sensitive skin.
Eyetitude IllumineyeZ Rejuvenator $129.99 USD
A luxe skincare treat for a fancy mom who deserves the world. This facial massager (hello, trendy) uses high-frequency vibrations combined with heat and red LED light to massage serums and creams into the deeper layers of the skin.

Rustic MAKA Natural Deodorants + Body Care Takes Two To Mango Daily Moisturizing Lotion $25 USD
This is a perfect budget-friendly option that still goes a long way. The lotion can be used on face, hands, body, feet, wherever a little extra hydration is needed. It smells amazing and keeps skin from getting too dehydrated throughout the dry months (or from all the handwashing).

ABEL Nurture Eau de Parfum $105 USD
Non-toxic fragrances that still have the designer feel and quality are hard to come by. Most perfumes use synthetic fragrance ingredients, but ABEL is one of the exceptions. Isaac Sinclair, who has developed scents for brands like Lancome and Guerlain, is the master perfumer behind ABEL. His partner Fanny Grau, a mother herself, developed this perfume inspired by mothers and motherhood.
