Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 10th — just 2 weeks away!

This year, there will sadly be no handmade gifts sent home from school or teacher assisted poems, which leaves you on your own to celebrate the women in your life who are still lucky to be with you! Now, some of the women may be like me — literally just dying for a few hours alone! — but if they’re not, here’s an easy resource for putting together some thoughtful ways to show your love and appreciation.

Local contact-free flower delivery, skip the trip to the grocery store or the online shipping fees:

Gift cards are also always welcome, and especially helpful right now to small businesses like spa’s, nail salons or her favorite restaurant.

There are some really funny questionnaires to ask kids especially if they’re under 5. You can find a free one here.

I anticipate many of the restaurants will have Mother’s Day special take out option, so remember to check back for her favorite breakfast.

And most of all, just remember to be grateful if you’re healthy, safe and comfortable. Wishing all of my fellow mom’s a Happy Mother’s Day. Hope your day is tantrum free, dishes free, and full of warmth and sunshine.
