Today is an incredibly special day, Mother’s Day, a celebration to honor every mom who has given so much to their family, children and community. It is a day dedicated to appreciating and showering love on all of our Mothers and a reminder to cherish the relationships we share with them. Given the quarantine circumstances, you may have to celebrate the holiday in the comfort of your home, possibly away from the mother figure in your life. This year, and every year, quality time is the best gift that you can give your mother. With some preparation and creativity, you can give your mom the Mother's Day she deserves during this time.
Here are a list of gift ideas for the woman you gave you life that can be easily made in your home will practicing safe social distancing:
Breakfast in bed: Begin your mother’s day by enjoying a home cooked breakfast with her favorite morning foods. However, if you are unable to visit your mother because you are separated due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can bring your mom breakfast in bed virtually by ordering breakfast from her favorite local restaurant.
Give her a manicure: Due to the anxiety present during this time, your mother deserves to be pampered. Rest and relaxation is a necessary gift for your mother on mother’s day. While she may not be able to go to a nail salon, you can give her the full salon experience in the luxury of your own home. In your at-home salon, allow your mom to sit back and relax while you do the work.
Coupon book: A DIY mother's day coupon book is an inexpensive and simple gift to give to your mother on this holiday. In this book, you can include a printed coupon of all of your mother’s favorite things or chores that you will complete for her. These coupons can give your mom a little break so that she can take a break from her daily worries and be newly refreshed for all of her daily activities.
On Mother’s Day, it is vital to give your mother something that represents your love for her. That said, you do not need to spend an excessive amount of money. There is no better gift than one that is homemade and comes from the heart. No matter the gift, your mother will love whatever you give her, especially when it is chosen/made with care. Your mother will cherish the quality time that you will spend with her on Mother’s Day.
We wish you a happy and wholesome Mother’s Day from the Otter Learning Family to yours.
