Sitting hunched over a laptop all day can be very hard on the body, especially if your mom's not getting any breaks to get up for a walk. If she is experiencing back pain as a result of working from home, a long bath at the end of the day may help. Drop in a few scoops of the Indie Lee I-Recover Body Soak into a warm bath and the product will literally start to melt away along with (dare we say) her troubles.
There are some great gift options out there for moms who love tea. You can grab an adorable tea diffuser or a top-notch kettle, but if you really want to wow Mom this year, get her a subscription to the tea membership club Sips by. Our editor tested this service and raved about how wonderful her tea selection was. As with any food subscription service, there were clear winners and losers, but overall, she enjoyed the variety of teas she got to sample.
During the pandemic, the opportunity for enjoying a meal cooked by someone else has been complicated but not eliminated: Outdoor dining persists, limited indoor dining has begun, and, of course, takeout remains a safe, delicious option that keeps all parties out of the kitchen. If you know your mom’s favorite restaurant, grab her a gift card from there. And if you think she’d like to try somewhere new, one idea given to us by Wirecutter editor Tracy Vence is a gift card to Black and Mobile, the first Black-owned food delivery service in the country to deliver exclusively for Black-owned restaurants in select cities (currently available in Atlanta, Detroit, and Philadelphia).
