Like all of the birthdays since early March, Mother’s Day this year was unable to escape Covid and will be unlike any other. Many families won’t plan a fun outing, have brunch, or even meet in person.

For most of us, we’ll be wishing our Moms a happy Mother’s Day from afar – whether it’s on Houseparty, Facetime, or just an old fashioned phone call.

But even though we can’t celebrate in-person, we can still send something a little more useful than flowers to let our Mom know she’s in our thoughts!
