This post is dedicated to Rob, Madeline, Robert and all the other dads, sons and daughters out there who might need a little help with Mother’s Day !
Mom this year might be celebrating Mother’s Day a little bit differently! Running out to grab her the perfect gift at your local boutique or booking brunch at her favorite restaurant might not be an option. But we certainly will not let Mother’s Day go unnoticed! So now is a good time to start thinking about unique Mother’s Day gifts to give during our Stay in Place.
While Mother’s Day gifts for delivery will most likely be at an all time high this year, delivery can take on a few different forms. Contactless delivery from a local business or your own personal hand delivery of a package to mom’s front door are just a couple of additional but meaningful delivery options!
Mother’s Day Delivery Gift Ideas
The first half of this post is focused on local options. For broader options, skip to main content towards the end of this post!
Small Business Delivery
Contents of Basket Available at M on the Square
Just because we may not be able to physically walk into our retail stores, does not mean your local boutiques are closed for business! Social media has been a great way for local shops to connect with customers. Video calls, Instagram stories, newsletters and social media posts are just a few of the ways we can still shop and support on a local level! And of course contactless and curbside are the available delivery options here!
Lake Forest Bookstore. They are only taking and shipping on-line orders, but here you will find all the latest best sellers, literary award winners, cookbooks and coffee table books! Plus, with Amazon delaying all non-essential deliveries, it is a great way to get your reading material quickly while helping to support an independent bookstore!
Chantilly Lace Lingerie. Offering a beautiful collection of sleepwear and lingerie, Larissa is happy to take your call at the shop! She will take you through her boutique or send your pictures so you can pick out something pretty for mom! call at 847-256-8077
Deseda Scarves. A silk scarf is one of those accessories you can never have too many of because it remains timeless! Shop Desesda’s collection of luxe modern scarves here. Contactless delivery and ground shipping available.
M on the Square. With a gorgeous curated collection of home decor items, gifts & stationery, luxury candles and soaps plus housewares such as plates & linens, owner Missy Crowe offers FaceTime appointments allowing you to pick out the perfect gifts for Mother’s Day. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Gourmet Food Delivery
Charcuterie Boards Available at Ellie Styled
If I was a guessing gal, I bet mom could use a night off from the kitchen right about now! Yes her favorite take-out is an option but consider taking it up a notch with these gourmet food gifts and menus!
Deerpath Inn. Offering family style dinners, a la carte options such as lobster and scallop risotto as well as a full sushi bar, find the upscale menu for carry-out here
ellistyled. Ellie of ellistyled is offering a delivery of a locally made wood charcuterie board along with a bag of curated selection of meats, cheeses, crackers and accoutrements. With this package, comes a video tutorial of Ellie showing you how to style and assemble your board! This is such a great family activity to do with mom or something to do behind the scenes and present to mom on Mother’s Day! email: hello@elliestyled Insta: @elliestyled
Foodstuff’s. Foodstuff’s has a Mother’s Day catering menu available here! From appetizers to pastries, treat mom to a fully catered dinner!
Flower Arrangements Available at The Flower House
Even if I am sending flowers to someone out of state, I always try to find local flowers shops in their area to order arrangements from! While I am lucky enough to be surrounded by so many independent florists, these are my favorite in the area for Mother’s Day flowers!
Flower’s By Katie. You feel the love that goes into every special bouquet Katie puts together. All of her arrangements can be custom designed to suit mom’s favorite colors and flowers! Find Katie’s on-line store here
Flower House. Give mom the gift of flower’s all summer long with the Flower House’s summer bouquet subscription. Four through ten week subscriptions are offered! More information is available here towards the bottom of her page.
M on the Square. Besides a boutique filled with beautiful things, M on the Square is also a full service florist with beautiful bespoke arrangements, orchids and topiaries offered here
Seasons. Surprise mom with floral garden arrangements ready to drop into your outdoor containers! Available in 9″ and 11″ gallon sizes, Seasons is also offering deliveries of plants, succulents and orchid arrangements! Contact information here
Subscription Box Delivery
Subscription Box Available at OuiPlease
There really seems to be a subscription box to cover just about any interest nowadays! And it truly is the gift that keeps on giving! While the options are countless, these ones have taking care of mom in mind!

This subscription will send your family four scrumptious recipes each week, along with all the ingredients.

The brand provides a curated collection of snacks from a different country every month. Subscription information available here
Putting together your own Mother’s Day gift baskets or gift boxes filled with her favorite things and hand delivering to her front door (or hubbies and kids, with her breakfast in bed!) is another way to make Mother’s Day this year as personal as possible. Coming up with a theme makes filling the basket perhaps a little more fun!
At Home Spa Gift Basket:
There are endless ways to get creative with pampering mom here! Fill a basket with face masks, bath soaks, a cozy throw, fresh slippers and a wrap.
Wrap Cardigan // Mini Mask Set // Luxury Soap // Basket // Striped Throw Blanket // Sponge // Sheet Masks // Cotton Throw Blanket // Sleep Mist // Small Initial Necklace // Slippers // Deep Sleep Bath Soak
Gourmet Picnic Gift Basket:
Again, another way to get creative! Satisfy mom’s sweet tooth with chocolates, candy or fresh fruit in a gourmet gift basket. Pull together a picnic basket filled with her favorite foods and a bottle of champagne or turn to Williams Sonoma and Harry & David for pre-assembled Mother’s Day fruit, bakery, cheese and other themed gourmet baskets!
Thanks for stopping by!
