As much as we might want to, we don't always get to celebrate Mother's Day IRL with our mamas. Some of us are still waiting for vaccines while others are separated by miles—but that doesn't mean we can't share a little extra love.
Whether it's her first Mother's Day or you just really miss your mama, we rounded up the sweetest and most useful gifts to send via snail mail to let your mama village know just how special they are.
In a world of quick text messages and emails, there's nothing sweeter than getting a handwritten card in the mail. Girl With Knife has tons of sweet and sassy cards for your friends who could use a little laugh right now.
If you'd normally drop off a flower arrangement, try delivering one to her door instead. Farmgirl Flowers creates beautiful, handmade bouquets from farm-fresh, eco-friendly flowers. Prices starting at $48.
Alternatively, you send a card that's also a bouquet! The enduring pop-up paper bouquets from FreshCut Paper offer a sustainable way to give her something pretty that lasts forever. And don't worry about shipping. All it takes is three 'Forever' stamps to get them to her door.

Mamas with wanderlust can get a (literal) taste of Japan delivered right to their doorstep.
