We all try our best to make Mother’s Day the most special day possible. We know mums go above and beyond offering unconditional love, and support. Mum’s do so much for us, and this is the one day we stop and say “Thank You”.
But what can we do, now that we may not even be able to see our mother’s due to coronavirus social distancing restrictions?
Read on to see our how you can create the perfect Iso-Mother’s Day.
Snail Mail is King!
Embrace the old-fashioned way of communication and send a card to your mum! There is nothing better than getting mail, especially when it is a thoughtful gift card with a personalized message. You can get crafty and make one at home or buy a gorgeous card.
Prepare a Special Meal
Ge the family together to really spoil mum with her favorite meal. Yes, breakfast in bed is popular, but why go all out and plan mum a special meal. If you can’t cook, you can always get a takeaway meal. With a lot of local restaurants still open for business, there is sure to be a special way to celebrate mum.
Drive Way Celebrations
If you are and adult, and your mum lives locally, why not arrange a drive by celebration. Decorate your car windows with “Happy Mother’s Day, Nanna” posters, flowers, and balloons and arrange for nanna to meet you in the driveway.
If your folks are tech-literate, why not celebrate Mother’s Day via facetime? A video call is a great way to connect, share smiles and laughs with loved ones. You could share a meal, play a game, or simply chat and connect.
Create a kid-free do-not disturb zone
Why not give mum some peace and quiet? Leave the house for an iso-walk, or spend some quiet time indoors while mum catches up on sleep, has a bath, does a meditation – what ever she needs to have a few moments for herself.
Mum on the Run!
…or maybe go the other way around. Let mum head out for a run or walk by herself, while the kids (hubby included) are at home, perhaps washing the dishes, mopping the floors, or folding the laundry. Nothing says I love you better than having chore done.
We know that these restrictions will ease, and we will be able to hug our nearest and dearest soon. With a few simple adjustments we can make sure that special days and events are celebrate uniquely.
