Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts During Quarantine

When a last minute run to your favorite store is no longer an option, how can you pick out the perfect gift for Mother’s Day in the Twin Cities? We’ve rounded up a few ideas to make Mother’s Day special during quarantine. The good news is most retailers offer free pick-up, and all it takes is a quick visit to their website or social media channels to reach out and connect to buy and arrange for pick-up.

1. Mother’s Day Gift Box

Gray Home & Lifestyle

A great ready-to-gift option for all the mothers in your life and available in 4 sizes, Gray Home and Lifestyle is offering gorgeous boxes including little luxuries and dried floral bundles – the perfect floral decoration to live on well beyond the day.

2. Hand selected gifts from Serge and Jane


What do you get when two ex Target executives start a boutique? A ton of great gift ideas. From the Brumate Champagne Flutes to the most stylish in loungewear, put together your own gift box with their unique and personal selection. Thow a giftcard in there and let her pick out something herself. Also, bonus: with each Mother’s Day purchase, you’ll receive a free pair of canvas garden gloves.

3. Bring the meal home

COV Edina

Bring the brunch to her and order takeout from many of the Twin Cities restaurants you would have planned a special reservation for. Note: you’ll want to jump on this now as many need the orders well in advance.

COV Restaurants (Edina, Wayzata) A truly gourmet choice, including brunch bites like French Toast Strata and a Smoked Salmon platter, or dinner of Beef Tenderloin. Choose from a Mother’s Day menu or regular menu, you won’t disappoint with the Lobster Guacamole.

Crave America (multiple locations) This local chain has something for everyone including sushi, cinnamom rolls, entrées, and local cheesecake maker Cheesecake Funk and more.

Colita (South Minneapolis) Make it a Saturday night feast the night before and order glazed pork ribs to go from the hottest restaurant in Minneapolis. Don’t forget to add the Churros Dulces, they’re to die for.

4. Spa later

Lilli spa

She will appreciate a few hours to herself at the spa now more than ever. Many area spas are still offering their typical giftcard promotions for spa services. Take your planning up a notch and get the giftcard AND book the experience.

Spalon Montage (Edina, Chanhassen, Woodbury)
Lili Spa (Edina, Galleria) Why not add to the giftcard with an at home mani kit? Check out the retail section for ideas to go with the giftcard.

5. Luxury hair products
I’m willing to bet you’ve heard the mother in your life wondering what to do about her hair while salons are closed, and our guess is one thing on her mind is getting her hair back in tip-top shape. While she misses her salon, most area salons are now offering retail pick-up of product. Keep her feeling beautiful with some luxury product from brands like Oribe (including a root touch-up spray!) Kerastase, and more.
