Mother’s Day 2021 is just around the corner, and we have the best gift guide for all mom’s in senior housing.

Mother’s Day dates back to ancient Greece as an annual spring festival to honor the mother of the Gods, the Goddess Rhea.

In today’s modern world, Mother’s Day is the biggest flower buying day in Britain and one of the most popular days of the year for dining out.

Since then, the holiday is celebrated in 46 countries across the globe, but at different times depending on what country you are from. In America, Mother’s Day was founded by Anna Jarvis and first celebrated in 1907.

So, with Mother’s Day just around the corner, today is the perfect opportunity to look for presents and gift ideas for a loved one in a senior housing.

Do not feel trapped with the classic gift ideas and look for something suitable for a senior citizen who deserves the thought and appreciation in this pandemic more than ever.

Gift Guide for every mom in senior housing:

Spa and Salon Treatment

Look for a hair and nail salon that offers home service, so you do not have to go out especially if Mom’s legs are not that healthy for walking. Pamper Mom with a new haircut, manicure, and pedicure. Finish it off with a relaxing body massage while listening to her favorite tunes.


If you can bring her out to the shopping mall, that would be a great idea. But if not, then you can do online shopping together. It would be best to let her choose the items she needs and just do the check-out process afterward.

Monthly Subscription

Give her the gift of a monthly subscription: movie streaming, audiobooks, or magazine. With this gift, she will have something to look forward to in her senior housing apartment even with no special occasion.

Homemade Meals

Frozen homemade meals will not only make her happy but ease the burden of preparing her own meal and save her money. Carefully pack nutritious meals in freezer casseroles and hand them to her on Mother’s Day.

Food Service Delivery

If the senior housing that she is in is not yet accepting visitors due to COVID19 restrictions, you can have her favorite meals delivered. Utilize the availability of food delivery services by ordering meals from restaurants or something that you personally cooked for her on this special day.

Memory Cooling Pillow

Show how much you miss her by giving her a memory pillow with cooling technology.  The price depends on the size, but if you have an extra budget, a larger pillow would be better for comfort and to give her that feeling of you just sleeping right next to her.

Memory Jar

A simple jar filled with colorful papers with wonderful memories you shared and with the family is a low-key yet impactful kind of Mother’s Day present. Each paper written with a different memory or wonderful times will remind her of her younger and fruitful years.

There is a plethora of options that you can give to your Mom on this special day but do not forget to consider her preferences and interests in giving her the perfect Mother’s Day gift even if she is now in a senior housing facility.
