Mother's Day is an annual reminder to cherish the relationship you have with your mom. Given this year's unique circumstances, many of us are celebrating the holiday at home or even, away from the women — moms, grandmas, aunts, you name it — that we love most. For that reason, some Mother's Day traditions like spa days and fancy dinners feel next-to-impossible this May. But remember, Mother's Day isn't canceled; in fact, the sentiment behind the holiday is more meaningful than ever before.
With some creativity and preparation, you can give your mom the Mother's Day she deserves — and, let's face it, needs — during quarantine. This list is full of ideas that don't require you or your mom to leave the house, so you can continue to practice social distancing and stay safe.
Serve her breakfast in Bed
When you drop off her Mother's Day card and gift, take some extra time to dress up her door with a spring wreath. That way, she'll be surprised with a burst of cheer when she opens her door — and she can leave it up for the neighborhood to see all season long.
Even if you can't hop on a plane and sightsee, you and your mom can still bask in the world's beauty with virtual tours of museums, gardens, mansions, and national parks. Take the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina, for example: You can see the ins and outs of America's largest home, including their state-of-the-art gardens and landscaping.
Take an online cooking class.
With a virtual cooking class, you can get the whole family to pitch in for her Mother's Day brunch or dinner. Whether you're looking for a speciality class (cheese-making, for example) or want to cook an entire meal from scratch, BluePrint has you covered with more than 100 options, averaging $10 a class.
Watch a movie together via Netflix Watch Party.
Host a Netflix Watch Party and watch your favorite movies together.
Host a virtual Happy Hour
Raise a glass to the woman who raised you — the virtual way. It's your call: Once you sign on Zoom or the video conferencing app of your choice, play games, tune into a virtual concert, or simply chat the night away with a cocktail in hand.
Cheers with a wine tasting
Wine is always a good idea, especially on your mom's special day. Turn her favorite activity — drinking wine, obviously — into a memorable experience by creating a custom wine tasting with different varieties of reds, whites, and rosés. Best paired with cheese and crackers, of course.
