While it’s not an ideal situation, it’d do your family best for the long haul if everyone celebrated Mother’s Day remotely this year. Delivery services are also slowing down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the good news is that doesn’t mean the gifts have to stop.

Thanks to the internet, there are now numerous ways to send a digital present that your loved ones can actually use.

Check out some last-minute gift ideas to show appreciation for your mother, and while you’re at it, why not drop her a free Louis Vuitton e-card, too?

Some floral retailers, like 1-800-Flowers, are offering same-day or next-day delivery services for Mother’s Day, so if you’ve been sending her bouquets as a tradition, you’ll still be able to do so.

Disney+ subscription

Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, surpassed 54.5 million subscribers as of 4 May 2020. Why not let your mother enjoy its offerings, too?

Let your mom pick all the classes she would like to learn from with a Masterclass All-Access Pass. Or, if you know her best, purchase a gift card for a class you know she’ll enjoy.
