15 Awesome Mother’s Day Gifts in the Time of COVID-19

15 Awesome Mother’s Day Gifts in the Time of COVID-19

I’ll admit Mother’s Day snuck up on me this year because it’s tough to feel like celebrating when you’re under quarantine. Plus, I’m usually flooded with fantastic product and activity ideas and this year, I have seen very little cross my desk which is a sobering sign of the times.

But now, more than ever, we need to show gratitude for how much the maternal figure in our lives does for us. Whether it’s your mom, your grandma, an aunt or someone else, honoring that person might look a bit different in 2020 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Luckily, we’re moms and we can get creative with fun activities, gifts, acts of kindness of a socially-distanced kind. Showing Mom you care will mean more than you know in the days of COVID-19.

Colorado Crafted Box and Face Masks

Colorado Crafted is a local woman-owned company based in Longmont that curates 100% local artisan-made products into one online shop. In this age of Amazon and big-box stores, their goal is to give people the ability to easily access truly local products online…which is the perfect win-win for these crazy times, because you can directly support small local businesses in our Colorado community without leaving home! The Colorado Crafted website allows you to hand-pick your favorite products to create the perfect care package, which will ship from their Longmont warehouse in 1-2 days. They’ve also designed a brand new collection with our state’s current situation in mind. The Colorado Care Package contains a deck of playing cards, each designed with a different Colorado 14er, a jar of hard candies made with local honey and the chocolate truffle is a healthy treat in disguise: it’s made with whole food ingredients and boosted with superfoods like maca. Last, enjoy a little artisan soap so you can keep washing those hands…in luxury! Add a beautiful artisan-made face mask into the mix to make this Mother’s Day box even more memorable. $37.50
