Celebrating mom this Mother’s Day may look a lot different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you, like many others, are used to treating mom to her favorite brunch place or a pedi at the best nail salon in town on this holiday, you may find yourself feeling a little overwhelmed.
With Mother’s Day less than two weeks away, I have rounded up several perfect ideas on how to celebrate your mom during quarantine. Additionally, I provided ideas on how to show your mom how much you appreciate her even if you live far away.
There’s also some Mother’s Day gift ideas listed that are sure to put a big smile on momma’s face!
If you live with mom…
- Let Momma Get Some Sleep!
Until I became a mom, I never realized what a luxury sleeping in is! On that Sunday morning, let mom get some much needed rest to start the day off on the right foot followed by.
2. Make Her Breakfast in Bed.
After she gets her beauty sleep, treat her to a special breakfast in bed. I personally love when my husband cooks breakfast for me, but if you’re not a professional chef, pick up her favorite brunch meal or have it delivered to your house.
3. Create a MOMosa Bar
What mom doesn’t love mimosas?! As demonstrated by Crisp Collective, you can create a personalized mimosa bar by picking out 3 of her favorites juices (orange, grapefruit, etc.) accompanied by 3 delicious fruits (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries). Don’t forget the bottle of champagne or two!
4. Set up a Spa Day at Home in the Bathroom
There’s nothing like a little pampering to make momma feel like the queen she is. Although she can’t get a pedi right now, the Conair Heated and Bubbling Foot Bath will her feet feel rejuvenated until she can see visit her favorite spa!
This foot bath is less than $35!
My personal beauty routine includes soaking in an Epsom Salt bath with a few drops of lavender essential oil and using my Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Facial Toner (unscented) and African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask.
5. Clean the House and Do Chores
If her love language is Acts of Service – this might be the absolute best present you could give her. I’m telling you there is nothing more special than when my husband cleans the house and does chores to help me out!
If mom lives far away…
You may not be able to visit a flower shop, but several florists are still offering delivery services! UrbanStems offers quick, free flower delivery for affordable prices. They have beautiful arrangements and offer orchids and indoor potted plants!
Another local florist and plant delivery service in the Southeast Louisiana Region I personally love to shop is Flora.Wild. This senior high schooler delivers beautiful, local plants to your doorstep! I recently purchased a Monstera from her, and it was absolutely beautiful and decently-priced!
2. Photos: Digital Frame, Photo Calendar, or Photo Album
Some of the best gifts are reminders of mom’s favorite memories or moments. Walgreens offers an amazing selection of photo services for their guests that will bring a big smile to her face.
3. Have a Special Meal Delivered to Her House
With so many amazing food delivery services, such as GrubHub, DoorDash, or Waitr, delivering mom a special meal on Mother’s Day will be easy! You could also pick it up and drop it by her house with a card if you live kinda close by!
4. Let Her Going Shopping – Online
As much as a gal loves to visit the mall, these strange times have changed the way many mommas shop. Gift your momma a giftcard or give her cash to splurge!
5. Buy Her an Online Course for a Hobby She Loves
Give her the gift of learning! Skill Share offers thousands of amazing courses to improve any hobby your mom may love. There’s courses for photography, writing, blogging, videography, interior design, and even my personal favorite houseplants.
I hope these ideas helped inspire you in celebrating the special mom in your life on Mother’s Day while staying safe at home.
