Mother’s Day

Sunday May 8th is Mother’s Day. If you’re away from home and you’d like to show your mom how much you love her, here’s a list of some mother’s day gifts that you can give your mom while you’re away from home.


  1. Send her flowers:

Pick a florist near your home and send your mom a bunch of her favourite flowers. It’ll be a nice surprise (that she probably isn’t expecting).

  1. Set up a Skype/FaceTime Breakfast/Lunch date with her:

The time difference may not work in your favour for this one.  But if you can, arrange a Skype/FaceTime call during breakfast or lunch. You can share a meal with your mom on her special day (even if you’re on the other side of the world).

  1. Send her a care package:

If you have time, create a care package for your mom and send it to her. You can include photos, postcards, and even souvenirs from your trip.

  1. Write her an IOU:

Although you’re travelling at the moment, you will return home at some point. Write your mom an IOU with a promise of something that you can do together when you get back.

  1. Send her a card:

All moms love receiving mother’s day cards (especially when they’re from you)! Send your mom a card wishing her “Happy Mother’s Day” and let her know that you’re thinking of her on her special day.
