Mothers Day ideas during COVID -19
Life has been upended lately, and that means there’s a good chance that you haven’t thought much about Mother’s Day, or you may be struggling to come up with a gift idea that you can afford with your current situation. So here are a few ideas to help…
Give her an experience she can look forward to post pandemic
Let’s be honest, chances are it’s been a while since mom has left the house and we can all agree that moms have taken on a lot of extra stress lately. With homeschool, pandemic grocery shopping and general stress levels at an all time high mom could use some rest.
Give her a gift certificate for something she can look forward to doing once the quarantine is lifted.

Make something with your own two hands
This may be something you haven’t done since you were a kid bringing home macaroni art, but it’s time to take things to the next level. Make your mom something like a homemade bath salt, lotion, or bath-bombs. The ingredients are really affordable, it’s relaxing and enjoying, and it’s something she can use multiple times. If you have culinary skills, make her favorite baked goods or make her favorite home cooked meal, bonus points if you remember it without having to ask. Food often takes us somewhere, whether it be a place, enjoyable memories, or a family member who’s no longer with us, those are things money can’t buy. Make her a photo album with pictures she has likely forgotten about. She’s likely to be overwhelmed with gratitude and joy.
Frame a picture
A picture’s worth a thousand words. Take a picture you know your mom loves; you, your family, her pets, a place or activity you enjoy together, whatever it may be, and frame it. This is something she can hang up to bring her joy every time she looks at it. It really is the small things that can bring so much joy.
This Mother’s Day may not be business as usual, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be memorable and wonderful. Use one of these tips to lift your mom’s spirits and give her the Mother’s Day she deserves!
