We all know it. We are dealing with such a difficult unprecedented time. Yet, everything goes on. After all, life doesn’t wait, and there’s no time to spare, especially if you’re a MOM. No matter what your title is … Mama, Mommy, Mother, Mum, or any other endearment, it all means one thing. You’re the human version of Wonder Woman that keeps everything down to a T.
While the majority of moms don’t ask for anything for simply doing what they do best, at the end of the day, she is still human. Moms get tired, too –just like everyone else. With mom’s “special day” coming up, it is only natural to show some type of appreciation (no matter how simple or small the gesture is).

Okay, first things first. Not all moms are the same. We are all unique in our own way. There may be a few instances where we have the same likes and appreciation of things. So on this roundup of gift ideas AND socially-distanced approved celebration, I made sure to include a little bit of everything to make sure you find the BEST gift that she will surely be able to appreciate and make use of.

For the mamas who already have their preferred drink and would rather just pour, serve, and rosé their way to relaxation SUNRISE ON HALF MOON BAY by Robyn Carr from MIRA books (an imprint of Harlequin Enterprises) would make a wonderful complement.
SUNRISE ON HALF MOON BAY by Robyn Carr
Why this specific title? Because the main story wraps around two sisters Adele and Justine, who happens to be born twenty years apart. It’s a terrific read that slowly reveals how they find the strength to accept their failures and overcome their challenges.

How about for the mamas who simply enjoy keeping their home tidy and smelling fresh? The Essential Mist Diffuser from Air Wick is the perfect partner in crime! To be honest, this would make an ideal addition to any home for mamas like me who need to mask the smelly diaper blow-outs throughout the day. Hey, a diaper trash bin can only do so much. With my little ones, you’re one step away from wanting a hazmat suit every change.
Air Wick® Essential Mist®
The Air Wick® Essential Mist® is a unique diffuser that uses nature-inspired fragrances to fill homes with a gentle, fragrant mist. Plus, it comes with over 15 nature-inspired scents! The deal breaker is that it won’t break the bank, and the kit starts at just $10. The refills are also budget-friendly and are available for as low as $5 at any major U.S. retailer.
Now I don’t know about your mom, but I don’t know any other mamas who can remember the time nowadays. Moms these days are living in a haze, barely counting any hours of sleep, but keeping up with a list of to-dos around. Having the G-SHOCK Women’s Watch from Casio would come in quite handy. The new downsized G-SHOCK models are excellent choices for today’s active lifestyle.
G-SHOCK Women’s Watch from Casio
I personally recommend the G-SHOCK GMDS6900SR-7 model. The series’ rose gold-tone adds a splash of color and style no matter what adventures await the day. Not only are the watches shock and water-resistant, but some models also have a stopwatch with countdown functions as well as world-time functions.

Since we’ve already mentioned getting dolled up, I also want to recommend the Lash-Fix It Kit from Grande Cosmetics!

Lash-Fix It Kit from Grande Cosmetics
GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum is a cult favorite that promotes longer, thicker-looking lashes like never before! It’s infused with lash loving & conditioning vitamins, antioxidants, as well as amino acids. It’s as straightfoward as it can be. Apply during your nighttime skincare routine to a clean dry lash area. Simply use one swipe to each lash line, just like a liquid eyeliner. Visible results in just 4-6 weeks, and full results within 3 months!
Just in case you didn’t know, our eyes lose at least 1-2 lashes per day. This is where GrandeREPAIR Leave-in Lash Conditioner comes to the rescue! It’s an invisible leave-in lash conditioner that protects, softens, and soothes lashes. It is carefully formulated and infused with WidelashTM, a biotin peptide that is proven to help protect against lash fallout, breakage, and even environmental toxins. Just like the serum, it is easy to use. Application is just like you would for a mascara, swipe onto your top and bottom lashes from root to tip.
