Creative Ways to Make Mother's Day Special in Quarantine
Hey babes! In a time of distance, holidays can feel a little different than usual and Mother's Day is no exception! While stay-at-home orders might stop you from being able to celebrate with others, it can't stop you from celebrating the mothers in your life. Whether you're isolating together or unfortunately apart, there are plenty of fun ways you can show mom that you're thinking of her. We've created unique gifts and virtual celebration activities to bring your whole family together safely this year!
Need some last minute gift ideas? We've got you! Check out our Mother's Day Gift Guide for some major inspo!
1. Send a Comfy Outfit
Forget the usual bathrobe and slippers, send mom a cute sweat set this year! Super cozy yet chic lounge outfits encompass just what mamas out there need right now: a day of rest and relaxation, and a feeling that she is beautiful, inside and out. We recommend our Teddy Mocha Zip-Up Hoodie, and pair with our matching Teddy Mocha Lounge Shorts. These are perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine, because she deserves to be comfy!
2. Spa Day Gift Basket
Surprise your mom by crafting your own "spa day" in a basket, and leave it on her doorstep! Add in some of her favorites like bath bombs, face masks, and of course a bottle of wine! She'll love pampering and treating herself all day, especially when it's gifted from you!
3. Breakfast In Bed
Start her day on the right note by dropping off a tray full of pancakes, eggs, or any of her other brunch favorites right on her doorstep. And if you can't be there IRL, order coffee and breakfast from her favorite local spot and have it delivered right when she wakes up.
4. Surprise Decor
When you drop off her Mother's Day card and gift, take some extra time to dress up her door with a spring wreath. That way, she'll be surprised with a burst of cheer when she opens her door- and she can leave it up for the neighborhood to see all season long.
5. Take an Online Cooking Class
With a virtual cooking class, you can get the whole family to pitch in for her Mother's Day brunch or dinner. Whether you're looking for a beginner's meal like DIY pizza or want to cook an entire dinner from scratch, there are so many (free!) options online to learn how to cook up your mom's favorite dish!
6. Make A Family Recipe Book
No doubt you're having more home-cooked meals than ever, so it's a perfect time to organize your family's favorite recipes. Not only is this a sentimental gift, but your mom will appreciate easily accessing traditional family recipes!
7. Throw a Virtual Paint Night
Perfect for the mom who loves to get creative! Many paint studios all over the country are now offering online classes, so the whole family can join in no matter where you are! Your 'canvas' can be whatever you want: a t-shirt, tote bag or even sneakers. Our favorite idea? Painting on our Parker White Sneakers for a fun, unique design that's just your own!
8. Take the Movies To Her
Movie night just got seriously upgraded. If you're going to be stuck inside, you might as well cozy up on the couch and watch a movie marathon with your #1 lady. To celebrate the occasion, pick from a list of mother-daughter favorites. Don't forget about all your mom's favorite movie-time snacks!
9. Host a Virtual Happy Hour
Raise a glass to the woman who raised you- the virtual way. Whether you decide to play games, tune into a livestream concert or simply chat the night away with a cocktail in hand, your mom is sure to appreciate some quality time no matter the distance! Get creative and learn a new drink recipe together!
10. Picnic in Your Backyard
Make dining at home more exciting by bringing the party outdoors. Set up a blanket, and cover it with plates full of picnic-ready snacks, or even take-out from her favorite local restaurant. We also love the idea of bringing some spring flowers to surprise your mama!
