Given the health concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic, Mother’s Day (May 10) is going to look a little different this year. You’ll still be able to tell Mom how much you love and appreciate her, but a video call may have to suffice instead of a traditional family brunch. You can also still send a gift from the heart, even if you’re social distancing. This year, one of the best things that you can do is show the moms in your life how much you care about their well-being by helping them keep their immune system strong. Below is a list of healthy items that we think would make for some great immune-boosting Mother’s Day gifts (for your mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, aunt, or friends that are moms).
Honey doesn’t just take good, it has many antioxidant and antimicrobial properties that can help Mom prevent and fight infections from viruses.

Social distancing is helping us prevent the spread of the latest coronavirus, but it means that we are all spending more time at home – cooking, showering, eating, etc. Many of us are also cleaning more than usual, perhaps keeping windows and doors shut, and washing our hands more. Each of these elements can result in less air circulation and more moisture throughout the home, which provides the perfect conditions for mold to grow. Many studies show that mold growth can compromise the body’s immune system and make you more vulnerable to viruses and infections.
Homebiotic spray is a probiotic for your home that adds good bacteria to balance out the bad ones. It helps prevent the growth of mold and mildew and eliminates the cause of musty odors, aka “basement smell”. While the moms in your life are balancing work and family at home, Homebiotic could be a simple yet effective solution for keeping the household healthy and their immune systems strong.

Wearing TrueDark Twilights will support her body’s natural melatonin production and prepare her for a great night’s sleep.

Science shows that staying creative helps reduce stress and improve wellbeing. This is because when you create, you unlock your imagination and put yourself into a flow state. Focusing intensely on a creative task is a productive and constructive use of your mind. It also prompts the brain to release feel-good hormones that can help distract us from feelings of anxiety or depression.
