5 Gifts for a Quarantined Mom This Mother’s Day


1. Brighten Her Doorstep With Flowers

Flowers are never a cliche for Mother’s Day. A delivered bouquet will remind her that you are thinking of her even while you’re apart. We are partial to the contemporary designs of Lisa Foster Floral Designs. You can also surprise her with a spring wreath for her front door with these great ideas from Pinterest.

2. Host a Virtual Dinner Date

With so many video chat options, there’s no reason you can’t have a little face time with mom over a nice meal. You can drop off a scrumptious chicken pot pie from MagPies prior to your call or video chat while you prep the meal together by ordering the same meal from a service like Home Chef.

3. Send a Personalized eCard

Avoid strapping on a mask and navigating around a sea of shoppers looking for the perfect card. Send her a personalized eCard from sites like Smilebox or JibJab. They can make her laugh or cry, but either way, she’ll be proud that you’re staying safe. She worries about you, you know.

4. Send a Gift Basket of Local Products

Easily order a curated collection of Tennessee-made items from Made in TN Gifts or make your own basket with Knoxville-made products that you can find at TheMakerCity.org. We love the soaps from Wildly Lavish Soaps and decadent cookies from Moonshine Mountain Cookie Company.

5. Buy a Gift Card for a Future Night Out

Support local businesses now when they need it most. Restaurants like Aubrey’s, Soccer Taco, and Nama will happily provide a physical or virtual gift card. Venues like The Bijou and Tennessee Theatre will also sell you a gift card so that you can buy tickets once shows resume.
