This year might not be a typical Mother’s Day, but it’s never been a better time to show the people we care about how much they mean to us. And there are plenty of ways you can still make mom feel special — even if you can’t celebrate together in person. Order a special brunch for delivery, send a bouquet of flowers that benefits a local charity, gift a basket full of Chicago goodies, and more. Check out this guide for ideas on gifts, takeout, and delivery options for Mother’s Day 2020 in Chicago.
