1) Baked Goods
What woman doesn't love a nice baked good? This is an easy move to score you some serious brownie points. (get it, brownies?)
Search around your area for a local bakery (kudos to you if it's family owned) and grab your Mama her favorite edible treat. Or two because she deserves it.
OORRR you can get crafty in your own kitchen and whip up some home-made goodies.
For any local Arizonians here are some of our favorite options for bakeries:
The Great Gadsby Bakery - Gilbert, Arizona
Gluten Free Creations - Scottsdale, Arizona
Honeymoon Sweets - Tempe, Arizona

When a lady can't go out to events, restaurants, public parks, yoga class, or even happy hour with the girls, what the heck is there to do?
Reading is always an option for some quality quite time that all mothers deserve.
Most bookstores are still open (for pick-up only) or of course, there is always amazon if you like to things the modern way.
Picking your mom up a book she has been eye-balling for a while or finding one about a topic she's interested in, shows you're not only paying attention but that you value her alone time.
Go grab that woman a book and wrap it all pretty!
