Mother’s Day is this Sunday and every year, we celebrate this special day with our mothers on May the 10th. However, this year, it will be a little different as many of you are stuck in the lockdown due to the Coronavirus outbreak. With little or no scope of going out, one can plan this Mother’s Day by doing something special for their mother’s inside homes.

But, there are a whole lot of people who are not with their mothers amidst lockdown. You can also make this day special for your mother by doing everything virtually.

Plan lunch virtually

How about going on a virtual date with your mom? Yes, you can plan a lunch or a dinner date with your mom. To make it more interesting, you can put some light music, whatsapp video call or zoom her and enjoy!

Make a video call and sing a song

Write a heartfelt note or sing a song or how about a poem?

How about watching films together?

Yes, there are some apps through which you can watch movies with your mother, even if you two are not together.

Order a cake

You can also order a special Mother’s Day cake with a sweet gift to your mom. Ask it to cut it while you’re on a video call.

Add some social media

You can make a collage of some of the old pictures of you and your mom and post it on social media with a sweet caption.

Don’t forget to tag your mom!

If you are living with your mom, here are a few sweet gestures you can do to make her feel extra special

1. Breakfast in bed

Surprise Mom with breakfast in bed, perhaps make it ‘extra’ with juice, pancakes, a card and some flowers!

3. Bake a cake

Find out what her favourite cake or special dessert is and bake it yourself, even if it doesn’t come out perfectly, she’s your mom so she’ll forgive you

DIY Gifts 

Show her how much you care with one-of-a-kind, DIY gift. Platforms like Pinterest have really cool ideas. Perhaps if you’re daring enough you could make a stunning head board?

Musical Memories

Create a playlist, including songs you and your mom have listened to together over the years including memories from weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, car rides and holidays.

Go Old School

Everyone loves a handwritten card or letter. Make your mom’s day by dropping off a handmade card made by yourself or the kids. Pick some flowers from your garden and include it with the card.

The Gift of Choice

Gift vouchers are ideal because mom can choose exactly what she wants. They may also be easier to get your hands on online. With most stores closed, get mom a voucher for her favourite online retail store or a spa voucher to be used at a later date.

It’s an important year to make sure moms are spoilt. The challenges of isolation are exhausting and energy levels may be low. Hopefully, this lockdown gift guide for mother’s day inspires you to shower your special mother with some love and care.
