Like most things in the past twelve months or so, Mother’s Day will be slightly different this year. For those of you who are unable to spend the day with your mum, we’ve come up with a few ideas to show your appreciation and help fill the day with fun!
- A Virtual Tea Party
By now, you’re probably all too familiar with socialising via virtual platforms – mainly because it’s the only option we’ve had over the last few weeks and months. So although we may not be able to be with our mums this year, we can video call for a catch-up.
But why stop there? Why not host a Mother’s Day virtual tea party with finger sandwiches and bite-sized desserts?!
- Sending Flowers
Yes, it’s clichéd but who doesn’t love a bunch of flowers? Make your mum’s day with a beautiful bouquet. A super easy gift to get delivered, even during lockdown, so while we may not be able to visit our mums, we can still treat them.
- A Care Package
Flowers, not your thing? I’m sure you can agree that all mums deserve a break now and again. This is why thoughtful gifts such as skincare sets, bath bombs and makeup could be the perfect care package, allowing your mum to treat herself to a pamper night this Mother’s Day.
After all, who wouldn’t enjoy a fancy face cream or luxe bath salt set that they normally wouldn’t treat themselves to? It gives our loved ones the break they deserve.
- Ready, Steady, Bake
Many of us have numerous fond memories of baking with our mums when we were younger, so let’s roll back the years and get our hands dirty.
With the help of Zoom or another video calling platform, you can easily have some fun in the kitchen together whilst following coronavirus guidelines. Simply agree on what you’re going to bake, get the ingredients together and let the fun begin!
Stuck on what to bake? We have a great recipe in Buzz Kitchen this month, that ties in nicely with Easter. Or if baking doesn’t do it for you, you could do the same with a candlelight dinner.
- Picnic in the Park
With the slight relaxation of coronavirus restrictions on 8th March, two people are now allowed to meet in outdoor public spaces, such as a park. This gives you the option to meet up with your mum at a distance and potentially go for a walk or even a picnic if the weather allows but please do act responsibly.
Whilst this Mother’s Day isn’t going to be what it normally is, it certainly can still be a day full of love and appreciation and hopefully, it won’t be long before we can hug our mums once again.
