Picking a gift to celebrate your mom is tough any year, but it's especially difficult this year, when you may not be able to show her how much she means to you in person. We asked our editors and the editors at The Spruce to share what they are planning to get their moms this Mother's Day. Hopefully, their ideas will help you find the perfect gift to let your mom know you're thinking about her and add a little bit of joy to her day.

"My mom isn't one to care about sheets, mostly because she's never had a great quality set to really give her a sense of luxury. I'm getting her the Parachute x Madewell sheet set this Mother's Day to hopefully replace all of her old ones with a soft, lush new set that will transform the way she sleeps." — Kim Carvalho, associate social media editor

"My mom has exactly two hobbies: reading and gardening. I know she'll appreciate this fiddle leaf fig in its adorable, cream-colored pot, accompanied by the matching tote. You can really never own too many plants, or totes." — Mélanie Berliet, general manager

"Keeping a stocked pantry full of healthy options is easier said then done these days, and I'd love to help relieve some of that stress from my mom's life. A membership to Thrive Market means she can stock up on high-quality organic pantry staples, snacks, beauty products, and even wine, all from the comfort of her couch. Even better, every time someone buys a membership, Thrive Market provides a free one for a low-income family." — Bridget Mallon, associate editorial director

"Now that my sister and I have been out of the house for a few years, my mom doesn’t even try to hide the fact that our dog is (and likely always was) her favorite child. She already has every dog-related knickknack one can think of—from t-shirts and tote bags to pillows and mugs—but she’s missing one thing: a custom portrait of our pup.” — Chelsea Stuart, senior commerce editor

"I'm going untraditional this year with a CBD pain relief cream. My mom has been walking five plus miles a day with the stay at home orders in effect in NY. She has been complaining about muscles soreness so instead of a massage, I thought this could be an unexpected treat for her pain relief." — Dwyer Frame, senior editorial director of commerce

Mother's Day Bouquet

"Sure, a bouquet of fresh flowers seems a bit expected, but these blooms transcend the typical hothouse arrangement. Hand-picked from Grace Rose Farm, these organically grown, old world roses have a beautiful fragrance—I can picture my mom enjoying her morning cup of tea with these nearby. Bonus: the roses can be easily dried and displayed, something that I know her sentimental self will appreciate." — Allison Bean, editorial director

Hot Jam Brownie Tea

"My mom loves a good cup of tea—her electric kettle is always on, and her tea selection is vast. I'm sending her a mini-care package filled with new, exciting blends for Mother's Day, and I'm definitely including this chocolatey pick from T2, which sounds like an absolute dream. It's filled with fruit flavors and has little bits of chocolate that will melt into the tea as it brews. Who doesn't want to start their day with that?" — Kate Geraghty, commerce editor

"My mom has made it her mission during quarantine to revamp the backyard. She recently purchased a fire pit, so I'm going to surprise her with these vintage-looking string lights to hang overhead and complete her outdoor oasis." — Karli Bendlin, email editor

"This is as much of a gift for my mom as it is for me. During this time, I have been in charge of buying groceries and delivering to our parents. This will help with the extra trips to the grocery store. It's very utilitarian, but I know she will approve. She's a no frills mom." — Jamie Abarca, editorial project coordinator for The Spruce

Brinker & Eliza Luna Earrings

"My mom adores jewelry, but she tends to receive necklaces and and bracelets more than anything else. To change things up, I picked out these beautiful pearl earrings from Brinker & Eliza to gift her. The pearls hang from sterling silver posts that are adorned with crystals. They’re elegant, sparkly, and handmade by a mother/daughter duo in Connecticut—which I know my mom will really love!" — Katherine Louie, commerce editor
