This Mother’s Day is a bit more hopeful than last year’s. Even if you and your parents can’t get the vaccine in time for the holiday, the odds are that you will be able to get it— if you want it!—quite soon. All it will take is a few more weeks, or months, of staying strong and social distancing before a Roaring ’20s–style summer may be upon us.
We may not be able to bring your family together, but we can offer some suggestions that will let the parents in your life know that you appreciate them. Here are our favorite gift ideas to help them work from home, keep their coffee warm, or go out running with their kids.
Updated May 3: We removed a few items and added a Tom Bihn tote bag, a weighted blanket, a Yeti cup, and some work pants to the guide.
