Mother's Day 2020
Set against the backdrop of social distancing and self-quarantines, this Mother's Day will be unlike any that has come before. Unfortunately, many people won't be able to make the journey home to see mom. At the same time, millions of moms have added full-time teacher to their already crowded list of responsibilities. Now more than ever, mom deserves something thoughtful on her special day. Whether you're shopping for your own mother, your wife, sister, or daughter, eBay has unique Mother's Day gifts to fit almost any personality.
Top Mother's Day Gifts During Quarantine
With so much time being spent at home, practical gifts are more relevant than ever. Consider the following gift ideas for Mother's Day 2020:
- Gift Baskets: The right gift basket will put a smile on her face. Sellers are stocking baskets with everything from spa products to sweets, so you have plenty of options. Since you can't travel from store to store, gift baskets provide variety in a convenient package.
- Bath and Body Products: If ever there was a time for an in-house spa day, this is it. eBay has lotions, soaps, and bath bombs to pamper mom and help her unwind.
- Perfumes and Fragrances: Chances are she has a favorite fragrance, and buying her a bottle is a practical gift that she can enjoy all year long. She probably hasn't been stocking up on extras like this, so the gift is thoughtful and pragmatic.
- Pajama Sets: You can't go wrong with a comfy pair of pajamas for mom. Let's be honest: they're also perfect for working from home. From soft cotton to shimmering silk, eBay has a huge selection of PJs for her.
- Wine: A bottle of wine can make for a romantic evening or simply give her a chance to relax. eBay's cellar has merlots, pinot noirs, chardonnays, rosés, and many other popular varietals and blends. Score extra points by picking a vintage that means something to her, like the year you got married or when she became a mom.
- Small Kitchen Appliances: We'd normally be loath to suggest kitchen goods for Mother's Day—after all, it's more of a gift for the whole family. However, with most meals being eaten at home, a slow-cooker, Instant Pot, or coffee machine might actually be appreciated (just be sure to handle the dishes yourself).

Don't forget to consider gifts that never go out of style:
- Jewelry: What mom doesn't appreciate a beautiful necklace, pendant, or bracelet? Think about the type of jewelry she wears now so you buy something that fits her style.
- Smart Watches: It's no secret that moms are busy and a smart watch can put all kinds of information right at her fingertips. Among the hottest items in tech, smart watches run apps, track steps and fitness goals, and can even take calls when connected to a smartphone.
- Handbags: A handbag or clutch is a stylish, functional pick she'll appreciate. You can go the luxury route with brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, or CHANEL, or find a fashionable bag from Michael Kors, Coach, Kate Spade, and more.
Unique Gifts for Mom
What do you get for the woman who has everything? eBay has plenty of unique products she'll love. Vases, china, and other pottery and glassware are thoughtful gifts. Talented artists sell prints, paintings, and sculptures that creative moms will appreciate.
First Mother's Day Gifts
Every Mother's Day is special, but her first is worthy of extra consideration. A locket lets her keep the new addition close to her heart while a mom-themed picture frame makes a great addition to her home or office.
No matter what gift you choose, you can't go wrong with a sincere gesture that shows you appreciate her every day of the year. With so much else uncertain, it's important she knows some things never change.
