Mother's Day might be a few weeks away, but it's never too early to start thinking of gift ideas—especially if you'll be sending the package by mail or if you've got more than one maternal figure on your list.

The past year has been difficult for the world but particularly challenging for mothers. A recent study concluded that COVID-19 has a more substantial social and economic impact on women than men, especially in terms of childcare. Through 2020 and much of this year so far, many mothers, wives, sisters, and female colleagues, have had to juggle work, parenting tasks, household chores, and so much more.

Mother's Day could be the perfect opportunity to show your gratitude and appreciation to these amazing women in your life. Want to steer away from the usual route of flowers, candles, and shower sets? We've put together some unique and useful gift ideas for the moms in your life.

Ember Mug

Many moms might need a big, hot cup of coffee more than most people in the morning. But often, even something so seemingly simple could be difficult to accomplish because of a crying child or other urgent tasks. For the mom who is almost always sipping cold coffee in the morning, this mug might come in handy. It comes with its own base that keeps the mug's contents at their desired temperature. It even has its own app that could remember settings and remind the owner to come back to their drink. It comes in gold, stainless steel, and copper (pictured).
