Grandin Road offers unique, stylish, and functional home pieces that will make her want to actually be inside her home (even if you have been there for months already).
This cool and funky Grandin Road Sparrow Desk is really cool to look at and even better to use as her office space. The legs of the desk are made to look like tree branches with small little sparrows sitting on them, while the wide and sleek desktop has enough space to use a functional workstation. The center console drawers give her a spot for her accessories (or snacks, we don’t judge) and the two slide-out surfaces give her extra space for note-taking during Zoom meetings.

If you’ve been working from home the past few weeks, you may miss the conveniences you might have had while working at the office with a dual-screen setup. While plenty of people have taken this time in quarantine to remodel their spare room into the office they’ve always dreamed about, we suggest an alternate approach. Rather than spend money on a new desk, additional monitors, etc, add SideTrak’s Portable Monitor to your laptop.

This portable monitor can be taken with you wherever you go and attaches easily to the back of your laptop screen. It can stay attached to your laptop so you don’t have to install it every time you pull it out but can be detached using the magnetic strips when it’s not in use.
Compatible with most laptops, including both PCs and Macs, SideTrak makes it easier to be productive and efficient when you are working. In fact, you can even flip the screen around so you can support your kids’ home school adventures while knocking out a few administrative tasks.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for the mom who is always working on the go, or you’re just trying to level up your productivity while under stay at home orders this Spring, SideTrak has you covered.

Technology is an amazing thing. It allows us to never miss a beat. We can stay in touch with family far away (or just down the road who we can’t see because of COVID-19) and we can take, literally, thousands of pictures to remember our days.

With reStickity you can print out your mom some of her favorite images of times past when things were normal and beautiful and happy, and she can place them in her home wherever she’d like. She just simply peels and sticks the images anywhere in her home- on the wall, on the fridge, on cabinets, on dressers, on mirrors- and they won’t damage the surface. Send them over to her house in time for Mother’s Day so she can create a collage of happy images until you get to see each other in person again.
