It’s that wonderful time of year again, where we like to give our mothers a little extra attention and celebrate all they do for us. Mothers deserve the most every day, but here are some special things you can do for mother’s day this year - May 9th (Sunday)!
If you live with your mom or can meet with her safely (after taking necessary precautions!)
Cooking together or baking together is a great bonding activity! Even better is to cook up a family recipe to celebrate different generations and keeping traditions alive. Here are some ideas for what to make!
Whether its crafting, redecorating your home, making little knicknacks, making or designing things together is always fun!
Watch mother-daughter movies:
Watching movies is always a great passtime, but there's something special and sentimental about watching a mother-daughter movie on Mother's day! Check out Buzzfeed's list of 31 movies all mothers should watch with their daughters!
Plan a picnic:
Good food, fresh air, nice scenery, and the perfect setting to just sit and talk with your mom!
Breakfast in bed:
Everyone appreciates getting breakfast in bed. Cook up your mom's favorite and serve her in bed!
Look through old photo albums together:
Mother's day is the perfect time to whip out your old photo albums or scrapbooks and reminisce on all your memories together.
Have a at-home spa day:
With a pandemic going on and all, going out to a spa is probably not the safest thing. So why not pamper yourself at home? Set up a simple little spa for you and your mom!
If you're living away from your mother and are unable to see her
Have a virtual brunch
Just because you can't be together physically, doesn't mean you can't have a nice chat over a meal. Set up a video call and have nice foods in front of you to feel like you're brunching together.
Send her a gift
Even if you can't physically spend time together, your mom will for sure feel the love from getting a surprise present at her doorstep!
Make her a video
While you might not be able to look through a photo album sitting side-by-side, you can easily compile your favorite photos and clips together to make her a short video of your favorite memories together!
