Mother’s Day is one of the greatest days of the year. A day devoted to celebrating all of the wonderful mothers who have sacrificed to make our lives more special. Unfortunately for most of us, Mother’s Day is looking a lot different this year. COVD-19 has rearranged all of our plans, including those we had to celebrate Mother’s Day. Luckily, there are still ways to celebrate mom even during a global pandemic. Read on for some great ideas on how to still make this day special during these challenging times.
Ideas for Celebrating Mom This Mother’s Day
- Send Mom Her Favorite Meal
- Drive-by Celebration
- Have a Spa Day
- Host a Book Club
- Arts & Crafts or Game Night
You may not be able to sit down with mom at her favorite restaurant this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring her favorite restaurant to her! There are plenty of restaurants offering free delivery these days, and you’d be killing two birds with one stone by making mom smile and supporting a local business.
If you don’t live with your mom, this is the best way to still see her this Mother’s Day while sticking to the social distancing rules. People around the nation are hopping on this bandwagon to make their loved ones smile whether it’s to celebrate a birthday, wedding day, or anything in between. Make a few posters and gather up the rest of mom’s family and friends for a drive-by parade where she is the star of the show!
If you live at home, planning a fun at-home spa day is sure to make mom feel pampered and relaxed on her special day. Turn the bathroom into a resort-style spa complete with a warm bath, face masks, and tools for a DIY manicure. Light some candles and pop a bottle of champagne! If you don’t live with your mom, you can still ship these items to her with notes on how to use each product!
For all the moms who love to read, this is a great idea. Have the members of your family all read the same book to be finished on Mother’s Day. When the special day comes, gather around with tea and snacks to discuss the book. This is a great option for those who live at home with mom and those who don’t because video chat makes it easy for anyone to join in on the fun!
Mom just wants to spend time with you, and what better way to do so than by having an at-home arts & crafts or game night? Organize a painting activity or break out your favorite game boards. Get creative and have fun! Artist or not, and whether you win or lose, these activities are sure to lead to many smiles and laughs. If mom doesn’t live with you, a craft session held over video chat still works.
Consider Skyline for All of Your Future Celebrations
We can’t wait to be able to celebrate with all of you again. Once our days return to normal, we’d love to have you and mom aboard a Skyline Cruise! We are proud to be the ideal waterfront venue for any of your special occasions, so we hope you will keep us in mind for your birthdays, corporate events, and next Mother’s Day. Stay safe!
