Let’s admit that Coronavirus has thrown its shadows over almost every aspect of our lives, but that doesn’t mean that we’ll be putting life on hold. We’ll just adjust to the current situation, without compromising a chance to stay positive and celebrate a day like Mother’s Day.

In this article, we’ve gathered a round of social-distancing-friendly gifts that will put a smile on your mama’s face amid the whole ordeal.

This is the perfect time for electronic gift cards; if mama is a music head, or a film fanatic, buying a voucher on the App Store would be such a delightful gift. All you need to do is open iTunes, scroll down, and press on the ‘Send a Gift’ button. An email format will pop up, and the amount of the voucher starts at 250LE – a fairly reasonable price.

If she’s a Google Play user, according to our research, I Media stores sells gift cards at prices ranging between 132 and 1142LE. However, note that these cards are only valid for USA accounts. Online subscriptions are an excellent option too; think Netflix or Shahid; a perfect gift for the binge-watching mamas, and there are plenty of them out there.

While we don’t recommend home delivery these days, if your mama is a coffee addict, there’s nothing better than buying here some quality ground coffee. Check Shaheen Coffee; the renowned coffee roastery has an online store.

 You can also revive the chef in you and bake your mama a cute cake; our favourite recipe is the 1234 Cake, check it out here. Or, you can play safe and buy a Betty Crocker cake mix, which are available on at prices ranging between 39 and 190LE.

Happy Mother’s Day!
