How to Celebrate Mother’s Day During Social Distancing

More than ever, we are finding ways to celebrate our loved ones and recognizing how much they mean to us, even though we may not be able to see one another in person.

This year show your mom, grandma, step-mom, or any mother figure in your life extra appreciation for having been there for you through thick and thin, in the past and the present. Show her you care and appreciate all that she does with these creative ideas for celebrating from a distance, and make this a Mother’s Day she’ll remember!

Go Site-Seeing Together – Virtually!

Many museums, historical sites, and gardens are offering virtual tours. Go on a virtual excursion to her favorite city by exploring the top tourist destinations virtually!

Take an Online Class

From cooking, to crafting, to a wine and paint night, the options are endless. Think about her favorite hobbies, or one she has always wanted to pick up, and sign yourselves up to take a virtual lesson together.

Host a Mom & Me Movie Night

Pick out her favorite rom-com or mother-child duo movie (like Freaky Friday or The Blind Side), and queue it up on Netflix using the Netflix Party feature! This will sync up and allow you to chat throughout the film, no matter how far apart you are.

Say Thanks a ‘Brunch’!

If your mom loves to brunch, set up a time to meet virtually, sip mimosas, and munch on your breakfast favorites. Even better if you can use a delivery service to send her something from one of her favorite local restaurants.

Start a Book Club

Sign yourself and her up for a book of the month club – they’ll send you a curated pick based on your interests each month. Calendar a standing video chat to discuss each months’ pick. Plus, having a new book each month is also a great way to stay busy and entertained during social distancing.

Focus on D.I.Y

Many of us have picked up new hobbies while staying at home, and it is the perfect time to share your newfound talent with Mom! Send her a sweet treat you baked, a homemade card, or fun decorations for her to feel the love from afar. If you’re more tech-savvy, spend some time digitizing the old home movies and photos she holds dear, and share them with the family via the cloud.

Spa Day

Send all of the supplies for a luxurious day of relaxation at home from soothing face masks to her go-to nail polish color. Bonus points for setting her up with a tranquil playlist and sending over a bottle of bubbly!
