Well, let's just address the elephant in the room — this Mother's Day is certainly going to be different. Depending where you live across the United States, you might still be under a COVID-19 pandemic stay-at-home order or in the midst of a phased opening. This current situation may throw a wrench in your annual traditions like dining together at her favorite restaurant or spoiling Mom with a spa day. But that's okay! Whether you're hunkering down with your mom or hundreds of miles away from her, you can still show your love and appreciation amidst these strange times.
We've rounded up our favorite ideas for Mother's Day gifts and thoughtful gestures below.
What to Do for Mother's Day: Thoughtful Gestures
Breakfast in Bed
If you're quarantined with your mom, breakfast in bed is a classic loving gesture to make her feel like the queen that she is. Whip up a hearty meal, spruce up the breakfast tray, and let her savor every bite in the comfort of her performance bedding.
Write a Letter
Expand from your yearly store-bought card and write your mom a meaningful letter. Take a few minutes to write down the reasons you're thankful for having her in your life. Tell her, in your own words, how much she means to you. A card could never convey the message of a handwritten letter.
Virtual Game Night
Game nights are always a fun way to spend quality time with the family. If your mom isn't part of your quarantine household, create a Zoom or Google Hangouts account (signup is free!) and enjoy some friendly competition. There are plenty of games you can play, including charades and bingo. Zoom even has a whiteboard feature so you can play Pictionary.
Give the Gift of Green
If your Mom has ample space in her yard and you practice social distancing, plant some new flowers or greenery to surprise her. Even if your mother lives in a small space, sending her a simple potted plant will constantly remind her of how much you care. (Amazon even has indoor gardens that will allow Mom to enjoy your gifts year-round).
Many of our customer reviews say that wrapping up in the SHEEX® Cool + Calm Weighted Blanket feels like you're getting a hug so why not give your mom that comforting hug with the gift of our weighted blanket.
Take a Virtual Cooking Class
Your mother may have already coached you on your favorite family recipes, but you can both expand your repertoire by attending a virtual cooking class together. Make a mess and make memories that will last a lifetime. If all goes well, you will have a delectable meal to brag about after the class.
Teach Her a TikTok Dance
Are you a parent of a Gen Zer? You may have been introduced to TikTok and the scores of trending dances. The wildly popular video app has been bringing families together during these times, so why not include mom in all the fun? There are tons of easy dances to learn like The Kick Drop or Toosie Slide. It doesn't matter if she's in her PJ's or sleepwear. Hop on a video call and get mama moving!

Your mother is a miracle worker, raising you while providing comfort and safety. Return the favor by surrounding her in the comfort she deserves — a luxurious sheet set that will help her wake every morning fully refreshed. They're the perfect setting for that breakfast in bed.
Some of your fondest memories are probably late nights watching movies or playing cards or board games with your mom. Gift her an unbelievably comfortable and Ridiculously Soft® sleepwear set designed for casual fun around the house. Her evenings will get so much better when she feels this good.
Your mom deserves some extra support, doesn't she? For an unforgettable sleep experience, you can get your mom one of our ultra-comfortable mattress pads. Our mattress pad will make you feel as if you're sleeping on a cloud and offers the perfect combination of temperature control, breathability, and luxury that she deserves.
Whether your mom is a hot-headed sleeper or keeps it groovy on the side, these pillows will do wonders for her when she dreams at night. Do her a favor by snagging a pillow that regulates temperature while offering the support she's going to need after a long day of being awesome.
We may never be able to repay the mothers in our lives for all they do, but going out of your way to make them feel special will convey just how much they mean to you. When in doubt, get your mother the gift of comfort and a full night's sleep when you give her a gift that allows her to Sleep Cool. Sleep Dry. Sleep Comfortable™®. After being a super mom, she needs all the rest she can get.
