Mother’s Day Gift Ideas – Perfect for Long-Distance Celebraions

12 May, 22

It’s that special day to let your Mum, Grandmother and all maternal figures in your life know how much they’re loved and appreciated.

If you’re unable to spend this year’s Mother’s Day in-person, here are some suggestions on how you can make Mother’s Day even more personal than ever.


Through the years, how often have you been reminded on Mother’s Day to “Call your mum!”

Thanks to video apps like FaceTime, WhatsApp and Zoom we can get close-up and personal.

Make her laugh and sing a song or remind her of a funny childhood memory. She will appreciate the extra thought.

Some video applications allow group chats for free. A great way to round up the clan and cheer her up.

For the movie buff mum:

If your mum is missing her nights at the movies, a streaming gift card for Netflix, Amazon Prime or Stan will be appreciated.

Netflix Party also allows you to link up with your mum and host a movie night on Mother’s Day. You can both curl up with some popcorn in your respective lounge rooms but still stay connected and enjoy each other’s company.

For the book nerd mum:

Whether your mum loves suspense crime novels or romantic chick lit, an audiobook or e-book subscription is the perfect gift.

Personalised Mother’s Day Gift Cards:

If your mum has everything, why not treat your mum to an online or instore shopping spree instead?

A Mastercard E-Gift Card will give her the freedom to buy what she wants from any online site in the world that accepts Mastercard. She can also add to her preferred phone wallet to use in-store. How’s that for endless choice?

Click HERE to choose which design you’d like to send her and simply select an amount. Simple and thoughtful.

You can also design your own card with a special photo of the two of you. (After all, you are her favourite, right?).
