Like other holidays in the past few months, Mother’s Day might look a little different this year. But just because we’re social distancing, doesn’t mean we can’t still make mom feel special. If you can’t physically be with mom this year, here are a few ways to still make her day.

  • Video Chat: With Zoom, Skype, FaceTime and the like, it’s easy to be with mom virtually. Give her a call either one-on-one, or in a group chat with the whole family.
  • Flowers: If you can’t find an online flower delivery company that’s open, the grocery stores are essential business, and still have flowers in their floral department. Don’t live in the same city? Call upon a local friend of mom’s to do the delivery for you.
  • Mother’s Day Brunch: Give mom a traditional brunch with one of many companies delivering food right now. Order things on Grubhub or Ubereats, or see if her favorite restaurant is delivering. You can even the grocery store to create your custom menu.
  • Take a Walk With Mom: Go on a nature walk or some place you know mom would enjoy, and take her along. If she doesn’t have the option to video chat, take a video and send it via email.
  • Make Music: Create a mom’s day playlist for mom on Spotify, apple music, or your favorite music platform. Mom will appreciate the work that went into it.
  • Gift Cards! A recent survey said that moms can’t wait to get back out and mingle. So load mom up with gift cards for shopping (in an actual store), dining out, or a salon. Even if she can’t use them now, she’ll be excited knowing it’s coming.

How are you doing Mother’s Day this year?
