Ideas For Mother’s Day During Lockdown
Treat Mum to a Wonderful Mother's Day - Even During The Lockdown
Mother’s Day is traditionally the chance we take to celebrate everything our mums do for us and, whilst you may not be able to spend Mother's Day with your mum this year due to the lockdown, there are still plenty of ways to show her your love this year.
Read below for some lovely ideas to make this Mother's Day (14th March 2021) extra special this year...
Celebrate Mother's Day Every Month
It's been a challenging year for many of us and many mums and grandmas have felt isolated being away from their families. Instead of treating Mum to just one bouquet of flowers this Mother's Day, why not give her something to look forward to with a monthly flower subscription?
Monthly subscription boxes have become increasingly popular, whether as a gift to others or as a gift to yourself. Subscriptions can range from beauty boxes, clothing boxes and even wine tasting boxes!
There is a box for most interests and a subscription box is the gift that keeps giving throughout the year.
Host a Zoom Quiz in Honour of Your Mum
During the first lockdown family Zoom quizzes were all the rage, so this Mother's Day why not create a fun family quiz based around your mum? Make it fun and ask each participant, including your mum, to come up with their own quiz round.
Questions could include your mum's favourite foods, favourite holiday destinations, questions about siblings and grandchildren or favourite books and movies.
Treat Mum to a Special Mother's Day Lunch
Whilst Mother's Day is often an opportunity for the whole family to go out for a traditional Sunday Lunch, this year will of course be different.
Instead, why not use this as an opportunity to share a cooking experience with your mum? If there's a family recipe you've always wanted to learn, ask Mum to share and make it together. Or why not try an entirely new recipe that you can learn together?
Alternatively, many local restaurants are offering takeaway services of their best dishes, if you live near to your mum could even collect and deliver to her doorstep.
Create a Family Book Club
Book clubs are a way for friends and family to engage with each other and to enrich their minds by reading new literature. Traditionally a book club chooses a book to read over a specific time period, then would meet up to discuss their findings, perhaps over a few drinks.
During lockdown, this isn’t always possible but you can still create your book club using Zoom. If you have siblings, you are able to have multiple screens on one call, bringing the whole family together.
