6 Mother's Day Meals You Can Have Delivered Right to Her Front Door
Mother's Day may look a little different this year. Thanks to social distancing, many of us won't be able to celebrate with mom in person, but that doesn't mean we can't make them feel special. Whether you're laying low with mom at home—and don't want to brave the grocery store and cook another meal—or you can't travel to see your mom this year, here are some delicious ways to spoil her with a meal and make her feel special.
Head's up: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, shipping may be delayed. Check each vendor's website and buy mom's gift early to ensure a timely delivery.
Harry & David
Brunch has never been so delicious (or easy!). Pick up a Mother's Day brunch set, complete with Wolferman's super-thick English muffins, a triple cheese and caramelized onion quiche, Canadian-style bacon, a lemon-poppyseed cake and marionberry seedless preserves. It ships in two days and comes in a beautiful floral box, all for just $80.
Can't get to mom's favorite pizza restaurant in Chicago or lobster shack in Maine this year? Goldbelly, a delivery service that ships local restaurant favorites nationwide, has got you covered. Our favorite picks? Key lime pie from Kermit's in Key West ($79), four deep-dish pizzas from Lou Malnati's ($95), a 4-pack of Philly cheesesteaks from Jim's ($99) or a 2-pack of Maine lobster rolls from McLoon's Lobster Shack ($55). With Goldbelly, you can order today and specify your delivery date (FYI, Mother's Day is May 10 this year).
Have an entire glazed ham or turkey shipped to mom (feel free to add on some heat-and-serve sides like cinnamon apples or green bean casserole to complete the meal). Opting for a virtual Mother's Day brunch? Ship her a cinnamon-walnut coffee cake.
You can buy all sorts of delicious treats from Williams Sonoma's gourmet food section. If mom has a sweet tooth, pick up a 15-pack of chocolate croissants ($40). They're flaky and taste like they come from a bakery. All mom has to do is leave 'em out overnight and bake them off for 15-20 minutes in the morning. If mom is more of a savory gal, treat her to a ravioli sampler ($50), Italian meatballs ($80)—or both!
Treat mom to Omaha Steaks' "Queen for a Day" package, which comes with four filet mignons (with signature seasoning), loaded potatoes and caramel apple tartlets for just $80 (and free shipping!). Buy it here.
Her Favorite Local Restaurant
Many restaurants are offering grab-and-go meals or delivery services during the coronavirus pandemic. Call her favorite steakhouse or brunch spot to surprise her with a meal she's missed during social distancing (bonus points if you get a takeaway cocktail!).
