Are you having a hard time thinking of ways to treat your mom to the Mother’s Day she deserves while stuck in quarantine? Don’t worry, even from the comfort and safety of your home, there are tons of ways to show her love on her special day. Here are just some ideas:
Set up a surprise virtual party with the rest of the family
If the family isn’t complete at home and everyone can’t meet up – whether because of the pandemic or other reasons – then holding a party via video call is the way to go. Make it different from the hasty FaceTime check-ins too! You can even invite relatives and her friends if they’re free to join, ask everyone to prepare a quick speech for her, and even have drinks and snacks together over the call.
Cook her favorite meal and prepare a fancy dinner
Yes, you can do the classic breakfast in bed, but you can also prepare a fancy sit-down dinner for the evening. Set the table, take out or make a centerpiece, and put on her favorite music too! You can even have the whole family dress up! This is especially perfect for moms who miss dining out on special occasions.
Make it an at-home salon and spa day
One of the best ways to ensure your mom enjoys her day is to give her that spa day she deserves. Set up scented candles, put on some calming music, and make sure she gets the relaxation she needs. Whatever you can do – whether it’s giving a great back massage or doing her hair and makeup for her – to make her feel pampered will definitely be appreciated.
Plan a game night
If your mom loves friendly competition, then game nights are the perfect idea! Whether it’s playing a bunch of her favorite board or card games or setting up your own little family tournament of parlor games, whatever activities she’ll love the most will do the job. You can even play games with other friends and family over a video call if there aren’t a lot of you in your household to celebrate!
Do a hobby that she enjoys
Has your mom gotten obsessed with a particular hobby during quarantine? Well, if she’s the type who loves sharing new activities with her loved ones, then joining her will definitely mean the world to her. Make paintings with her or bake a new recipe she’s been dying to try out together! You can even do online fitness classes or workouts together if that’s what she’s been into. The most important part is that she gets to do something she enjoys with people she loves!
