23 and Me

This may not be for everyone, but if you have ever been curious about your ancestry or genealogy, their mothers day sale might be a great time to invest.
Invest in a new hobby
Not only moms can benefit from a new hobby, with everyone having some extra time at home this past year. However, if she hadn't already picked up a new passion project, now can be a perfect time. You know her best, so depending on what she might want to explore or what her interests are, not to mention her dislikes, finding a way to try something new even together (when safe to do so) creates some much-needed distraction and passion from life. To start this process, do your homework. Investigate and learn something about your mom or spouse that they used to enjoy when they were younger or had to give up after the demands of motherhood took over. Get her back into her passions in life and be there to support her each step of the way. For creative passions that involve some guidance, a subscription to Skillshare is a wonderful gift. There are thousands of online learning courses for just about every creative endeavor or hobby imaginable. Easy to use and watch at your own pace.
