This Sunday is Mother’s Day. While the holiday may look different this year, there are still plenty of ways to show your mom/grandma that you care. Whether you’re ordering a delicious brunch to-go/be delivered, or organizing a Zoom party, here are some creative and fun ways to honor the most important woman (or women) in your life.
Organize a Mini Mother’s Day Parade
If you and other loved ones live near your mom or grandma, ask everyone to decorate their cars and schedule a time to drive by the house. Be sure to involve the kids, honk a lot and bring the fun! Bonus points if you’re able to record her reaction and share the video with the entire family when you return home.
Try a Virtual Cooking Class
Does mom/grandma love to cook? Set her up on Zoom and learn how to cook a coveted family recipe from the master herself.
Tour Your Memories
Teach mom/grandma how to FaceTime (if she doesn’t already know J) and walk through your favorite family photo book together. Then, ask her to share some pages from her most cherished album. If she doesn’t have an album handy, ask her to recount some of her most memorable moments with you.
Send an E-Card
Brighten up her inbox with a personalized e-card. Louis Vuitton has launched an interactive card-making experience for Mother’s Day. They also created special LV patches of their most iconic products and animated gifs to make the cards fun and playful. View them HERE.
Send Her an At-Home Brunch.
Order a delicious meal and surprise mom/grandma with dishes delivered from her favorite restaurant. Not only will this put a smile on her face, you will also be supporting a local business.
Order a Personalized Message from Her Favorite Celeb:
From Lance Bass to Chris Harrison, Cameo offers personalized messages from some of your favorite celebrities. The best part? All proceeds will benefit COVID-19 relief efforts. Browse your options on the brand’s website HERE
Send a Silly Video
Record a mini clip of yourself reciting a poem, singing her favorite song, or listing her best qualities. Remember to include grandma, too!
Send a Care Package
Send your mom/grandma a personalized gift basket filled with goodies. You can include candles, framed pictures, and her favorite candy. Bonus: If mom/grandma enjoys wine or cocktails, add her favorite bottle or ingredients to shake up a tasty libation.
It sounds simple, but just hearing a loved one’s voice can do wonders to lift the spirits.
Do Window Visits
If you live locally and it’s safe to do so, drive by your mom’s house with a “Happy Mother’s Day” displayed on your car. Even though you will be more than 6 feet away, she’ll feel close to you
Sync Up Your Watchlist
If you and your mom have the same taste in movies or TV shows, text each other and start watching at the same time. After the show is over, give or a call and recap all your favorite scenes and characters. If you’re binging a season together, plan a time that you will watch episodes, even while you’re apart.
Take a Virtual Workout Class Together
For all the active mother/daughter duos who like to sweat it out together, try a virtual workout! Equinox and Lululemon offer free virtual classes.
Start a Book Club
This activity is great because you can involve mom, grandma siblings and friends to gather together (virtually) and indulge in some great literature
