How to Celebrate Mother's Day Virtually
Thursday May 07th, 2020Share
Mother’s Day is on May 10 this year, and yes, that's this Sunday, which might have snuck up on you because of the corona pandemic. And while quarantine will definitely make the holiday feel a lot different this year, it's still possible to make Mom feel special while social distancing.
Calling your mom or chatting her on FaceTime is the obvious first move, but don't hesitate to go above and beyond, from gifts, to flowers to sweets and more. After all, just because you're stuck at home doesn't mean you can't go all out with the celebration.
Read on for more ideas for how to share Mother's Day with your mom, even if you can't be in the same place.
Have a Virtual Party
Even if you're not in the same place, throw Mom a party! Invite her and all your friends and loved ones to a virtual get-together. Video conferencing apps like Zoom, Google Hangouts and Skype can help bring you together, where you can play games, pour drinks and just catch up. If everyone's got a mobile device, platforms like JackBox games and the HouseParty app are good for facilitating some fun and easy group games. (Plus, there's no cleanup after.)
Flowers are always a nice surprise for any special occasion, and that's truer than ever now. Sending a floral arrangement shows Mom you care, and thankfully, a lot of them offer contactless delivery.
Send a Care Package
What better way than a care package to make Mom feel, well, cared about! There's probably a care package out there that any mother would love, featuring food and drink favorites, to bath products and more
Share Sweet Moments
Of course, what a lot of us are doing right now is keeping ourselves entertained, and Mom is no different. As you plan your virtual visit for the holiday, share what shows and movies you’ve been watching. Talk about uplifting stories or memories. Talk about what you've been reading, cooking or anything else! It's hard to go wrong here.
Here's to giving your mom a fantastic Mother's Day!
