Treat Mum to a Fabulous Mother’s Day – Even During The Lockdown!
Mother’s Day is a chance to celebrate everything our mums do for us and, whilst you may not be able to spend Mother’s Day with your mum this year, there are still plenty of ways to show her your love.
Read below for some ideas to make this Mother’s Day (14th March 2021) extra special this year…
Host a Mother’s Day Quiz
During the first lockdown many of us enjoyed family Zoom quiz evenings, why not create a fun family quiz based around your mum? Questions could include favourite foods, mum’s favourite holiday destinations, questions about siblings and grandchildren or favourite books and movies.
Make it fun and ask each participant to come up with their own quiz round based on your mum.
Treat Mum to a Special Mother’s Day Lunch
Whilst Mother’s Day is often a welcome opportunity to get out for a traditional Sunday Lunch, this year will be slightly different.
Instead of looking for a way out of the kitchen, why not use this as an opportunity to have a lovely cooking experience? Is there a family recipe you’ve always wanted to learn? Ask Mum to spill the beans and cook alongside each other via video link. If you have children at home, get them involved by making delicious treats for the family to share.
Alternatively, many local restaurants are offering takeaway or delivery services of their best dishes, if you live close by you could even collect and deliver to your mums doorstep.
Monthly Subscription Boxes for Mother’s Day
Monthly subscription boxes have become much more popular over the past year and can range from beauty boxes, gin clubs and even monthly sock deliveries! The choice is endless and a subscription box is the gift that keeps giving throughout the year.
Treat mum to something more than just one Mother’s Day bouquet this year with a monthly flower subscription. In these challenging times, with many facing loneliness and repetitive days inside, having something to look forward to can be invaluable.
Book an Online Activity For Both of You
We know that it can be difficult to not be able to see your mum this year, perhaps you usually visit the spa or enjoy an afternoon tea together? Lockdown doesn’t have to mean that you can’t share experiences with your mum.
There are numerous online courses available to suit all budgets, ranging from cookery classes, language and even floristry courses that you could sign up for together. Finding an activity that you can both enjoy will make Mother’s Day feel more inclusive and give you entertainment that can be shared.
Create a Pamper Hamper for Mother’s Day
Whilst mum can’t visit our Cheltenham beauty salon for Mother’s Day this year, why not create a hamper filled with her favourite beauty products so that she can enjoy a pampering session in the comfort of her home?
There are many online stores that sell gift baskets and you can involve the whole family in choosing products and decorating the basket to drop off at her home.
Start a Family Book Club
With the age of easy accessible news and social media, do you find that you aren’t reading for pleasure as much as you used to? Many of us in this situation find that joining a book club is a fantastic way to engage with others over a common interest. Traditionally, a book club will choose one book to read in a certain time scale, then come together to discuss the literature.
As you cannot physically meet up, why not create an online book club or have your meetings via video link? Zoom has multi-participant functionality which makes it ideal for creating a family book club with your mum and siblings.
