To say the least, this past year has been difficult for most of the world. While previously, you could go back to your mum’s place and celebrate Mother’s Day, it might not be possible this time around.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t make your mum or any mother-like figure in your life feel special. We’re happy to share some fun ideas to celebrate your mum in a socially-distanced way.
Host a Virtual Movie & Drinks Night
Whether you can’t go home because of your busy schedule or for safety reasons, you should plan a virtual celebration for your mother. Order her food from her favourite restaurant and her choice of drink, of course. Next, pick a movie or show she loves, and watch it together. Even though it isn’t the same as hanging out in person, you can still have a great time!
Go on a Socially Distanced Picnic
If your mum is just a short drive or train ride away, then try to take out time to visit her on Mother’s Day. And ensure you’re taking necessary precautions by organising a socially-distanced picnic! You should prepare a charcuterie board and get delicious nibbles and prosecco to celebrate. Head over to a lovely park and find an empty spot.
Send Over a Lovely Arrangement
It’s not always possible to take an off from work or fly cross country to see your family. Fortunately, you can easily send Mother’s day gifts in the UK. From luxurious chocolate arrangements to prosecco hampers, there are so many options to choose from. You can even customise a gift.
Did you leave everything to the last minute? Don’t panic, same-day delivery gifts are available.
Sign Her Up for a Class
As adults, we always want to try out fun activities, but there simply isn’t enough time. Whether your mother was always interested in pottery or tarot cards, sign up for a fun class. Instead of taking her out for brunch, giving an experience is much more memorable.
Gift a Staycation
Travel is out of the question in the near future. But you can still help your mum enjoy a weekend getaway. Book a local Airbnb or a fancy hotel room for your mum (and dad). Most of us have been staying indoors for so long. Spending a weekend in a nice hotel will offer a nice change of pace.
Virtual Wine Tasting
Do you and your mum consider yourselves wine connoisseurs? Mother’s day is the perfect opportunity to test your taste buds. These days, you can get your hands on wine-tasting kits. So buy one for yourself and one for your mother. Set up a Zoom call and get tasting! You can also sign up for a virtual wine tasting experience.
Try Backyard Camping
If your mother has a backyard, you can feel like little kids again by setting up a tent there! Make it cosy and charming with plush blankets, cushions and fairy lights. To go above and beyond, set up a projector for an outdoor movie night! This is also a great (and safe idea) if you want to spend time with the entire family.
