These Weird Gifts Are Perfect For The Weirdest Mother's Day Ever

Mom won't be able to socially distance herself from alien-themed salt shakers, a pocket chainsaw or a wearable reproduction of Kim Kardashian's butt.

It’s not easy to celebrate Mother’s Day during a pandemic, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try.

Your mother gave you life — and while stay-home orders may keep you from seeing her in person, you can still show her that you’re thinking of her.

Meanwhile, she can wonder what you were thinking when you gave her that wearable reproduction of Kim Kardashian’s butt.

In that case, social distancing may not be a bad thing.

    Your mom probably has a lot of stuff, and frankly, it's a hassle carting it around. Luckily, there's the Gita, a "following robot." If your mom balks at the idea of having a robotic helper shepherd her stuff around the, uh ... house, just look at her lovingly, and tenderly say, "It's the 21st century! Get with the program, lady!" She'll love your gentle message of respect.

    At this point, it probably doesn't make sense for mom to wear her best jewelry when she's only in leggings and T-shirts — quarantine life! Still, if your mom likes her hot dogs Chilean-style with mayo and avocado — and we realize this is a very specific niche — then she is sure to love earrings shaped to look like the regional dish.

    If your mom does decide to take a walk, it's important to carry ID and maybe some money. But pants and jacket pockets are so, ugh, 20th century. Today's modern mom carries around her essential documents inside a baseball hat. Really. She does. You can look it up. (Editor's note: We found no evidence to support that lame assertion).
