As families experience a new reality, Mother’s Day takes on a new meaning this year. “The prevailing mood is that people are ready and excited to celebrate Mother’s Day (or anything really) in any and all ways possible,” says Lash Fary, whose company, Distinctive Assets, distributes its annual “Mother’s Day in Hollywood” Gift Bag to a select group of famous moms.

Veestro Plant Based Meal Delivery Service
“I have been personally using this service throughout the quarantine to minimize the need for grocery store runs…and I’m officially a fan,” says Fary. Veestro’s chef prepared, healthy meals are delivered ready to heat and serve.
Fortune & Frame
“I have always been a sucker for sentimentality, so Fortune & Frame’s wearable love letters are one of my top picks for those looking for an awesome gift that is sure to impress mom,” says Fary. These wearable love letters carry a personalized message that can be changed as often as you like.
According to Fary, “GE Lighting’s LED+ Speaker Bulb is another quarantine hit! Stream music from your phone through the lightbulb while you’re in the shower or anywhere in your home.”
