Did your mother fall in love with Pokemon GO when it came out? Mine did—she’d spend hours running around and catching new Pokemon for her collection. She may not be out and about playing it much anymore, but I feel confident she’d love having a Nintendo Switch, the easy-to-use console that allows her to play the suite of Mario games and reviewer-favorite Animal Crossing. She can opt for a full system that she can play with others, or the single-user Nintendo Switch Lite that she can keep all to herself. 


A well-received and elegant gift for girlfriends, better halves, mommies, and siblings (as in your mom).
For Mother’s Day this year, I got my mother a subscription to Bouqs, a flower-delivery service that sends a fresh bouquet of flowers every month. It is, hands down, the best gift I’ve ever gotten her. She adorably texts me a picture of her bouquet every time it arrives, and reminds me every month that I’m not allowed to cancel it. If mom loves flowers, it doesn’t get better than Bouqs.

Various occasions can be listed when presents are shared. Providing them with a surprise present while they are dining will be an included treat. The idea of exchanging gifts on New Year and Christmas is to want them a happy and successful year ahead.
The more pictures you add to your scrap book, the more sentimental and interesting it would become. You can use any pictures of your mom to make the gift more special. Try adding photos of your mom when she was young, when she was pregnant, you with your mom when you were a baby, and of the years of growing up.

In-between meetings, your mom can learn a new skill virtually with the help of Masterclass. We particularly like the session taught by makeup artist Bobbi Brown, where she shares her expertise in step-by-step tutorials. Your mom will learn how to choose the right shade of foundation, do a smoky eye, and avoid common makeup mishaps. There are also myriad other options taught by well-known A-listers like Simone Biles, Shonda Rhimes, and more.
