Mother's Day is May 12th. If you don't get to see your mother, make it easy and send her something special, but not too hard on the budget. Books are a great go to--as are candles, kitchen towels, or something else unique and special to her. Here are suggestions from Amazon. This covers shipping, too, if you have Amazon prime. Put something in your cart, and mark you calendar to pay for it and ship it on the Wednesday or Thursday before. I often do this for birthdays of relatives I don't get to see. It doesn't really cost much more than a card. It just lets them know you are thinking of them.
