Without a doubt, this Mother’s Day is going to be different due to the current pandemic; But, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the moms in your life! You might just need to get a little more creative this year.
To offer some inspiration, we’ve brewed up a list of 15 ideas to help make this Mother’s Day special without leaving home. This May 10th, #StayHome, check out the list below, and Happy Mother’s Day to all you fabulous ladies out there!
In the Home
1. Breakfast in Bed
Always a beloved classic - every mom is sure to love being served breakfast in bed. Serve up a stack of fluffy pancakes, or oatmeal with fruit; Either way, don’t leave out her favorite mug of coffee.
2. Homemade Cards
There’s nothing better than Mother’s Day cards made with love. Break out the paper, crayons, glitter, and glue and let the kids show how much they love mom.
3. Spa Day
Sure, she can’t go to the physical spa right now; But, why not give her a spa day at home? Fix mom a relaxing bubble bath and light some scented candles. Follow it up with mani/pedis and a shoulder rub - mom’s going to love this!
4. Order Flowers
In most places, florists are still busy delivering amazing bouquets. Don’t pass up the opportunity to have some gorgeous fresh flowers delivered to mom. It’ll make her day!
5. Take Care of the Chores
Give mom a much-needed break from the household chores for Mother’s Day - she’ll definitely appreciate it! Take care of the breakfast dishes, fold the laundry, walk the dog - whatever needs to be done! Just don’t let mom lift a finger!
6. Craft Something Special
The kids will love the opportunity to craft something special, and mom will treasure their creations. Gather what craft items you have around the house and let the kids' imagination run wild. If you need some great arts and craft ideas, check these out.
7. Order Takeout Delivery
Is mom’s favorite restaurant still delivering? Surprise her with a delivery of her favorite meal! She’ll love enjoying a meal with her favorite people; Not to mention no kitchen clean-up afterwards!
8. Take a Hike
If your city allows it, take a drive to a secluded spot and go for a long walk or hike. The fresh air will do everyone some good, and mom is sure to appreciate getting out of the house on her special day.
9. Let Mom Rest
One of the easiest, yet most rewarding, things you can do for mom is give her some time to rest and recharge. Fix mom a glass of wine (or coffee), hand her her favorite book (or the remote) and let her enjoy some “me time!”
From a Distance
Is the mom you want to celebrate this Mother’s Day far away or socially distanced? Take a look at these ideas for still making her feel special.
10. Send Delicious Coffee
Let Angelino’s help make Mother’s Day special for the mom you’re celebrating. We can ship her favorite coffee right to her door to help her enjoy her day. Not sure which coffee she likes? We’ve got you covered with one of our variety packs!
11. Make a Song Playlist
Are there certain songs that remind you of her every time they play? Maybe you have a special song you’ve always danced around to together? Make a special Mother’s Day playlist on Spotify, Amazon Music, or your favorite music service and send it mom’s way. What an excellent way to brighten her day!
12. Have a Tea Time
Brew some tea, grab a pretty hat and some pearls, and schedule a virtual tea time with mom. She’ll have so much fun catching up with you while sipping tea and munching on snacks. Make the experience even more enjoyable by sending her some fabulous Angelino’s tea.
13. Make a Digital Photo Album
Have some pictures on your phone you’ve been meaning to share? Or, what about that box in the closet you’ve been meaning to get to? Take some time to put together a digital photo album for your favorite mom. She’ll love going through all the pictures and sharing in your memories.
14. Buy Her a Subscription
When you buy mom a subscription to something she enjoys, she'll be reminded every day that you’re thinking of her. Subscribe her to regular coffee deliveries through Angelino’s, a wine of the month club, or maybe a fabulous makeup box subscription.
15. Drop Off a Meal
If the mom on your mind doesn’t live far, why not whip up her favorite meal and safely leave it on her porch for her to enjoy? She’ll appreciate you going the extra mile for her on Mother’s Day.
