Mother's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world to honour motherhood. Unfortunately the celebration this year will be quite unusual due to the current restrictions.
As it won't be possible for everyone to see face to face their family for the time being, online shopping might save the day to find the best gift for the occasion. It is often possible to contact small business owners to ask them to attach a personal note along with the gift.
