Mother’s Day 2020 is definitely going to be different from other years. As I write this post, most people in the country are quarantined at home as we wait out the COVID-19 pandemic. If ever there was a time when a mom might needs self care and balance (and a few moments of peace), it’s now. And though I tend to write about organizing and decluttering tips, my ultimate goal is in finding balance in life. So, it feels apropos to curate a list of Mother’s Day gifts that help Mom find balance.
Whether Mom loves spa time, curling up with a good book, art, movies, gardening or crafts, I’ve got gift ideas that will bring her joy!
