We shouldn’t let lockdown ruin the opportunity to spoil Mum with love and presents, so this Mother’s Day it’s all about getting creative and thinking outside the box. Although many of us won’t be able to celebrate Mother’s Day together, there are still plenty of ways you can create a memorable experience for her and make her feel extra-special. In this blog post, we have 5 ideas on how to celebrate Mother’s Day from the comfort of your own home.
1. Surprise her with flowers!
Is it even Mother’s Day if you don’t give your Mum a fancy bunch of flowers? With companies that will deliver straight to her door, you can either get fresh, flat-packed letterbox flowers which she can have the fun of arranging herself, or shop local and get the biggest bouquet of flowers sent direct to her doorstep. Why not go all out and sign her up for a flower subscription, which will put a smile on her face all year round!
2. Plan a pamper package
Create your own home spa and put together a relaxing pamper package for your Mum this Mother’s Day. Fill a box full of face masks, bath bubbles, essential oils, scented candles, skincare products and a good book, drop it off at her door and let the relaxing begin!
3. Virtual Afternoon Tea
There’s nothing Mum’s love more than drinking tea, eating cake and having a good old natter. Arrange a delivery of tea, sandwiches, scones and sweet treats to yours and your Mums house – there are businesses that will do local delivery or you could make it all yourself! Set up a video call with your Mum and voila! You can talk the afternoon away while drinking copious amounts of tea and eating as much cake as you like!
4. Get crafty!
If you are wanting to have some fun and get the creative juices flowing this Mother’s Day, you could both join a virtual painting or pottery class, or send her a crafty kit such as DIY candle making. Give the gift of a personalised embroidery kit to get stuck into, and she can create something than can be treasured for years to come.
5. Dinner and Drinks
There are a couple of different ways you can treat your Mum to a nice meal and drinks this Mother’s Day. You could choose to send out a meal kit for a fine dining experience, this way she will have all the ingredients and instructions to make a restaurant-quality meal at home. Another option would be to surprise her with a delivery of her favourite take-away so she can put her feet up and relax for the night. Or you could arrange a video call and cook the same thing together, sharing tips and having a good laugh while doing so! For drinks, you could get a personalised cocktail kit delivered, all she’ll need to do is shake, pour and enjoy!
6. Buy her some jewellery
Show your Mum how much she means to you with a beautiful piece of jewellery chosen by you. Whether it’s a new charm for her bracelet, a personalised necklace, or a simple pair of floral earrings, she will adore this thoughtful gift.
