Items that are easy to send and remind your mom of you for those separated during the quarantine.
Flowers that Last Forever
I had always heard about these flowers that lasted for years, but I was a little skeptical a few years ago. I purchased a single red rose encased in an acrylic box for my grandmother, and it has help up miraculously for the past few years. She has it on a tray in her entry hall, and it’s mesmerizing to stare at the flower. You can even open the box to get a closer look. Such a great way to brighten anyone’s day.

A Personalized Gift Box
I’ve always had a passion for gifting, so over the past few months, I decided to finally channel that passion in a way that I could share with others. Enter: Chapel & Fox, a one-stop gifting destination where carefully curated items come beautifully packaged with handwritten notes.
For our Mother’s Day box, we included a framed photo of your choosing, tea from Boon Tea, a cute handsoap bonbon from Murphy & Daughters, and a tin with truffles from famed chocolatier Louis Sherry.
