Mother’s Day is just around the corner and even though moms are superheroes who need to be celebrated daily, having a day to honor and appreciate what they do for us should not be taken lightly. Some of us are lucky to be quarantining with our mothers and grandmothers, others not so lucky. Despite the current situation arising from the coronavirus pandemic, mothers will be celebrated this year as well, quarantine style.
We do not have the luxury to go on spa dates or have a mother’s day brunch at her favorite restaurant, neither can we waltz into the nearest shopping mall to get her that item she has been talking about before the chaos that came with the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Not to worry, the best Mother’s Day gift is spending quality time with your mother.
We are here to help you celebrate your first ever Mother’s Day, quarantine edition. These thoughtful suggestions include a few viral activities you can undertake with your mum so as to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Cook for her or with her
If your mom is the one who always does the cooking, then this is your chance to take the reigns and make her a three-course dinner from scratch. If you want to make it extra fun, sign up for an online cooking masterclass with her favorite chef. I can bet that will blow her mind away.
Indoor spa day
Give your mum the spa day she could not go for. Give her either a manicure or a pedicure and give her some time off her feet. It might not be as fancy or thorough as the professionals would have done it, but the concept would be very much appreciated.
Help her learn a new skill
Your mother might be warding off taking on new challenges and using time as an excuse. Now with all the time you both have, grab the essentials needed to begin learning that skill she has always talked about and cheer her on. You can join in and learn with her. It could be knitting, painting, sewing, whatever craft or activity she wants to acquire so badly.
Virtual happy hour
If you must facetime your mother this Mother’s Day, do not make it go the usual way. Have a virtual happy hour and catch up over cocktails. You can share recipes as well as indulge in other fun activities virtually. If you have siblings, make it a zoom call so you enjoy this special day with mom.
Pre-order a piece of customised jewelry that will come with you and your mother’s names. It can be a necklace or a bracelet. You can throw in a customized card with all the sweet words of love and appreciation you know your mother deserves.
