When you don’t live close to your mom, it can be hard to find long-distance Mother’s Day gifts that you think she’ll actually enjoy. That’s why we’ve combed the internet for what we believe are some of the best gifts out there for the occasion.
Whether your mom is a wino, healthy foodie, hostess or amateur techie, below are 30 of the best long-distance gifts for Mother’s Day:
1 Wine, delivered monthly to her front door
If your mom loves her cab more than most, give her a gift you know she'll use. With Winc, she'll get a shipment of expertly selected wines delivered to her door suited to fit her tastes.
Brooke Matthias, Winc's wine director, offers a few tips on selecting the perfect bottle for mom:
1. Rosé: When picking out a bottle of rosé, look for one that is lighter in color and lower in alcohol. A deeper color tends to mean that a rosé is richer in body and has more sweetness.
2. White: If mom is a white wine fan, but you want to impress her with something more unexpected than Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, try a bottle of Chenin Blanc. Chenin Blanc is a bright and light style of wine.
3. Red: If you're celebrating Mother's Day with a brunch, you'll want a red wine that isn't as heavy as a full-bodied Cabernet. Field Theory Touriga Nacional is a perfect light-bodied red with fruit forward flavors.
4. Chardonnay: Salient Chardonnay has a touch of California butteriness and is perfect for the mom who loves hosting special occasions and dinner parties.

5 Custom style boxes from StitchFix
If you mom loves finding new and trendy clothing items, but has a hard time knowing where to start, a clothing subscription box might be a good start. Getting a custom style box from Stitch Fix is as easy as 1,2,3 ― literally.

6 CBD pain and wellness lotion from Lord Jones
The CBD-experts at Lord Jones have mastered the creation of a true pain and wellness formula. For moms with aches, pains, arthritis, inflammation and skin conditions, this lotion by is a literal godsend. (I use it on my feet before and after wearing heels and it makes a WORLD of a difference). It's made in small batches from Ecuadorian dark chocolate, European fruit essences and phytocannabinoid-rich CBD extract from organically grown hemp. Learn more about it here.
7 Airy perfume perfect for spring and summer nights
If your mother loves the lightweight smells of vanilla and caramel, she'll die for the deliciously layered scents of Secret Genius from the gals at Pinrose. It's my go-to going-out scent, but it's light enough to wear at the office, too. Try it at Sephora.
8 Fitbit Ionic Smartwatch
The Fitbit Ionic Smartwatch has, well, everything. It includes a built-in GPS, personal coaching, on-screen guidance, health rates and readings, as well as stores 300+ songs. It's also water-resistant. Get it here.

13 A new mattress, like Casper
Cult-favorite mattress brand Casper completely disrupted the mattress industry by making bed-in-a-box mattresses the norm. If your mom is still using an unforgiving springform mattress, give her the gift of better sleep with a new Casper mattress. What makes Casper unique is its high-density, layered memory foam design, which bends to your pressure points and leaves you waking without aches and pains. Unlike most memory foam mattresses, Casper’s open-top cell layers use convection and conduction to keep you cool and comfortable while you sleep. When you order through Amazon, you still get access to Casper’s 100-night risk-free trial period ― if you don’t like it, your mattress can be returned (free of charge) through Amazon. Plus, you’ll get Casper’s 10-year mattress warranty. That’s something to rest easy about.

19 Nutri Ninja single serve blender
If your mom is a healthy foodie, this Nutri Ninja uses "blending patterns" to adjust blending times to give the perfect beverage every time. Better than all of the smart technology, though, is how easy it is to use when you're in a rush. It comes with sip-and-seal lids perfect for on-the-go foodies. Get it here.
20 Vintage books and coffee, for the bookish mom
