Mother’s Day is knocking at our doorstep, and we’re all starting to think about what we should get for our mothers this year.

One thing all moms probably have in common right now is that they are stuck indoors and likely not going anywhere for the foreseeable future. This means no trips to the spa, no massages packages, no manicures or pedicures at the local beauty salon. But there are plenty of fantastic gifts for Mother’s Day for moms who want to be treated right from the comfort of their own home.

We’ve come up with a list of excellent gifts that range from self-care essentials and beauty must-haves to kitchen gadgets and gorgeous and practical home decor items that will liven up any mom’s space.

Home is currently our sanctuary and our solace, now more than ever, so let’s make sure our moms have all the lovely things they need to enjoy their time at home.
