Mother's Day Gift Ideas: To Keep Mom Occupied on a Lockdown

As if she isn't with everyone packed indoors. I know I already did mother's day gift ideas for 2020. Check it out here. But I have to admit the previous one is more like a dream list. It's not practical on the budget. Here I've made a new one.

Read till the end to see what are the free things you can do to make mom's day extra special. Yes, it doesn't cost anything as long as you have the materials on hand. So let's get the ball rollin'. Scroll down.

Mother's Day Gift Ideas: To Keep Mom Occupied on a Lockdown

one  |  two  |  three  |  four  |  five  |  six  |  seven


1. kindle + kindle unlimited subscription  |  Does mom love to read? If you have an old kindle laying on the house, how about updating it to a newer version? Or get mom a kindle unlimited subscription for one month?

We don't usually pay the full-price one-month subscription valued at $9.99. What we do is wait for promotions. Like right now, I still have an ongoing kindle unlimited subscription for 6 months valued at $39.00 US dollars. To calculate, I only paid $6.665 US dollars per month to access lots and lots of books.

If mom reads a lot, she'll get more than the price you'd pay for.

Does she prefer hard copies? I recommend this and this for moms of all ages. Personally, I like to collect hard copies. They're so nice to look at in a home library. However, at night time when the lights are off, it's actually more convenient to read from the Kindle e-reader.

2. bath kit  |  After a long tiring day serving everyone in the family, mom deserves to relax too. Currently, this one is on sale for half the price.

The set includes:
  • 2 bath soaks
  • a body oil
  • an exfoliating mitt
  • and a rose quartz crystal. 

Plus, it's handmade with purifying rosewater and rose petals which evokes a sense of calming relief, mom will surely love.

Oh, and throw in a rose-scented candle too like this one to complete the whole spa experience at home.

3. anti-aging beauty regimen set  |  You can never go wrong with an anti-aging beauty kit.

This set includes:
  • a glycolic foaming cleanser
  • glycolic acid toner
  • collagen moisturizer
  • super collagen mask
  • and a glycolic eye cream

What's not to love? It's from trusted brand women love. And comes with a free mother's day gift with any purchases with any Mario Badescu purchase for $35.

4. eye defining kit  |  Mom can experiment with new eye makeup looks using this five-pan palette from bareMinerals. It includes an eye shadow palette and a lashtopia mascara.

5. at home nail treatment kit  |  Leave mom's nails refreshed and flawless with an at-home nail treatment. If you have one at home, this is the best time to service mom.

It is long-wearing, ultra-pigmented which contains moisturizing ingredients that glide on for a creamy matte look that does not dry down.

7. the super duo facial serum  |  This is my ultimate favorite in the list. And it's currently on sale!

The lavender-colored serum on the left side is called the super bounce. It is made up of hyaluronic acid + vitamin b5 serum. A daily serum for mega hydration on all levels!

On the right side, the orange-colored serum is called the super glow. It is made up of vitamin c + magnesium serum. A daily serum that gives your skin that lit-from-within look all the time!

For free things to do, you can take a paper and write 'FREE 1-hour massage treatment for mom to be claimed on mother's day.' Or treat her to an at-home facial treatment serviced by you, use what you already have in your beauty counter. The sky is your limit, be as creative as you can be.
