Quarantine life is making for an untraditional Mother’s Day this year. That means no restaurant brunch, no trip to see a show, and no visit to your favorite museum. But that doesn’t mean the day has to go by without some fanfare because now more than ever, we all really need some TLC. Enter these Mother’s Day goodies that’ll make you feel special while you stay home with your crew.
Not Baked by You
We can never get enough of the bite-sized cupcakes created by Melissa Ben-Ishay, one of our favorite NJ moms. Baked by Melissa’s Groovy Mama gift box includes 25 mini cupcakes with flavors like Chocolate Strawberry, Cookies & Milk and Electric-Tie Dye. Buy now for $37
One Exhausted Mama
As we enter our third month of quarantine, the words “Tired as a Mother” have taken on a whole new meaning. Add “you’re so annoying” to the mix, inspired by the Mom You’re So Annoying brand created by Michelle Weinberger, and you have the perfect stay-home sweatshirt. Buy now for $59.95.
The Little Words Project makes bracelets encouraging kindness with a portion of proceeds donated to an organization that promotes self love. With mantras like breathe, peace, strength and grateful, we’re obsessed with mixing and matching them. Buy now for $20 per bracelet.
Give your skin some much-needed love with a do-it-yourself facial. This DIY kit from Flora’s Cottage, an organic day spa in Ridgewood, comes with five types of clay, argan oil and vitamin E. We love this as a fun mother-daughter activity to do together. Buy now for $22 per kit.
Wine and Chill
A can of Backpack Wine makes it easy to have a glass without popping a cork. Sourced from Washington State vineyards, you can choose from two kinds of rose, white and red. Buy now $10 for a four-pack.
Feel better before bed with a routine that’ll relax you while nourishing and moisturizing your skin. Moroccan Magic’s 5-piece collection includes a lavender and argan exfoliating face wash, lotion and more. $79 for the 5-piece set or purchase each item individually.
