Give Mum a Fabulous Mother’s Day – Even During The Lockdown!
The first lockdown really began around Mother’s Day in 2020, so it feels unbelievable to think that we’ll still be in a lockdown for Mother’s Day this year. Mother’s Day 2021 is a chance to celebrate everything mum does for us and it turns out, even if you can’t see her during the lockdown, there are still plenty of ways to show her your appreciation.
Read below for some ideas to show mum your love this Mother’s Day (14th March 2021)….
Treat Mum to a Mother’s Day Lunch
Whilst Mother’s Day is often a welcome opportunity to get out for a traditional Sunday Lunch, this year it is sadly not possible. Instead of looking for a way out of the kitchen, why not use this time as an opportunity to share some family recipes? Ask Mum to divulge a secret family recipe and cook alongside each other via video. If you have children at home, get them involved too!
Alternatively, many restaurants are offering takeaway services of their best dishes, if you live close by you could collect and deliver to your mum.
Monthly Flower Subscriptions for Mother’s Day
Treat mum to a little something more than just the standard Mother’s Day bouquet this year with a monthly flower subscription.
A monthly flower subscription (or beauty box, gin subscription and even socks!) is the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. In these challenging times when many are feeling lonely, something to look forward to can be invaluable for many.
Book an Online Course Together
You might not be able to enjoy a spa day or afternoon tea together this Mother’s Day but you could still give Mum some quality time during the lockdown.
There are numerous online courses available now to suit all budgets, ranging from cookery classes, art and creative writing courses that you could sign up for.
Putting thought into finding something that you can enjoy together will make Mother’s Day extra special.
Create Your Own Book Club
Book clubs are fantastic ways for friends and family to engage with each other, discuss their perspectives on the same subject and enrich their minds by reading new literature.
Traditionally a Book Club would choose one book and then meet together after a specified time period to discuss the book (and usually enjoy a few drinks!). During lockdown, this isn’t always possible so you may have to get creative with video calling.
If you have siblings, why not make it a family book club and have multiple screens on one call, bringing the whole family together.
