The pandemic may complicate Mother’s Day this year, but know the only thing your mom really wants is to hear from you. Don’t feel guilty if any special days are low-key. The most important thing is being safe.
If you are looking for ideas on creating a socially distanced and unique experience for a mom or caregiver in your life, this blog is for you. You’ll find ideas below and two different aviation-themed color pages for Mother’s Day.
If YOU LIVE LOCALLY
- Turn mom’s front door or porch into a burst of colorful celebration. Use streamers, make a custom sign, or even place a wreath she’ll adore on the door. What does she love? How can you incorporate that into the details?
- Yard signs are a big trend in the South and a fun project for any occasion. Unleash your inner artist or enlist the help of the Monet in your life.
- Practical gifts are always helpful. Make mom a coupon to mow the lawn, plant the shrub she just bought, or complete any task you know she isn’t looking forward to doing. You can always skip the coupon and make it a surprise.
IF YOU’RE NOT LOCAL/OTHER IDEAS
- Virtually travel together. The hottest tourism spots worldwide have created video tours that let you explore museums, art galleries, and other attractions at home. Has mom always wanted to see Paris? Visit the Louvre and plan your European vacation for the future.
- If you have time, creating a slideshow is an option you’ll both enjoy. Who doesn’t love laughing and cherishing old family photos?
- Practice self-care by taking a virtual yoga class, completing a soothing craft, or having a virtual spa day together.
- Pick out an e-card that shows your mom or caregiver how much you love and appreciate them.
Other classics include:
- Delivering flowers
- Giving a gift card
- Coordinating a video call
- Calling for a long chat
To all the mothers and caregivers, Happy Mother’s Day!
