From the handmade, crayon-colored cards you made in kindergarten to the first box of chocolates you gave her with your own money, chances are your mom remembers most of the gifts you’ve given her on Mother’s Day.
While you might not be with her in person this year for Mother’s Day (which is on May 10, FYI) you probably want to get your mom a special surprise to let her know that you’re thinking of her — even if you call each other every day.
Of course, there are lots of Mother’s Day gifts and cards out there for these weird times, and since we’re on the lookout ourselves for our moms, we rounded up some of the best gifts to get moms who live far away.
