Perfect Mother’s Day Gifts to Send Long-Distance


By Kylie Ora Lobell

Mother’s Day is coming up, and you want to find some mom gift ideas for the holiday. The problem is that you live far away from your mom.

Don’t worry. There are number of great gifts you can send long-distance to show your mom that you care.

A Special Spa Day

Your mom worked hard to ensure that you had a happy childhood. Now it’s time to show her your appreciation for all her efforts. A spa day—complete with a massage and facial—will make your mom feel relaxed, as well as provide her with a day of rejuvenation.

Check out what kinds of deals are available from LivingSocial in her neck of the woods. It’s one of the mom gift ideas you can send long-distance that she will truly enjoy.

A Beautiful Bouquet of Flowers

A fresh bouquet of beautiful flowers is always a favorite when it comes to mom gift ideas. Set the date, time, and delivery address and send your mother a bouquet of her preferred flowers ( offers exquisite roses, tulips, lilies, daisies and more). She’ll proudly display her plants while thinking of you. However, if your mom is more of a foodie than a plant lover, send her an order of Cheryl’s Mother’s Day Cookie Flowers instead.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

So your mom is an admitted chocoholic. That’s OK. It’s natural. Mother’s Day, give her sweet tooth a treat with these Mother’s Day Chocolate-Covered Strawberries by Harry & David. They can be shipped long-distance overnight and come with buttery white chocolate lettering that spells out “MOM.” She will enjoy indulging with these after dinner or alongside a glass of sparkling champagne.

A Fine Fragrance Set

Toward the top of any list of mom gift ideas is perfume. It lasts a long time and will brighten your mom’s day, every day. If you want to send your mom a bottle of perfume long-distance, go with the Fiesta Carioca Women’s Perfume Gift Set by ESCADA. It comes with spray, body lotion, and a decorative pouch, which is great for storing both gifts.
