Ideas for Mother’s Day – Quarantine Style

This just might be the most unusual Mother’s Day ever. You probably won’t be able to celebrate the holiday in the traditional way that you’re used to. But you can still do something to make that special lady feel, well, special! Here’s a few ideas:

  • Do a drive-by Mother’s Day parade complete with streamers and balloons and posters. Be sure to honk your horn and play loud music. 
  • Pop a gift basket on her porch
  • Have food delivered from her favorite restaurant
  • Flowers are NEVER a bad idea! How about picking up a beautiful plant for her, delivering it to her porch. Or better yet, plant it for her!
  • And of course, call, write or give a virtual family hug. 

Gift Ideas for Special Moms

The Gift of Comfort

How about these comfy Dearfoam Slippers for her to pop on in the mornings. Perfect for summer, but will still keep her feeling cozy.

Coffee – Always a Good Idea

This adorable Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker and the sassy Mama Needs Coffee Mug would be perfect popped into a gift basket with her favorite flavor of coffee. Because coffee is always a good idea!

Give Good Scents

I’m a huge fan of Pacifica products and am in love with this Pacifica Patchouli Berry Perfume, it’s a little boho mixed with a little hippy dippy and it’s beautiful. It’s the perfect scent of summer to me. I also really like woodsy scents as opposed to floral ones, so I’m thinking this Coastal Driftwood Scented Candle will be perfect as we head into the summer months. 

The Gift of Style

I mean…what’s not to love about the Sugarfix by Bauble Bar line at Target? Everything is so on trend, well made and super cute. Give your mom, best friend or daughter this cute pair of Sugarfix Mixed Media Earrings and she’ll be able to style with anything and everything in her closet. 

I’ll close this post with a favorite photo of my Mama. She’s been gone for several years now, and the sting of losing her has slowly ebbed away. But I’ve found that I’ve missed her all over again as we’ve gone through this pandemic. So many times I’ve wanted to talk to her about all of this. To listen to her calm voice. Just hold her hand. But I can’t. At least not now. I know I will again someday, and that gives me peace. If you’re still grieving the loss of your mom, honor her by allowing your children to honor you. It’s a wonderful tribute to the mother she was!

If you’re fortunate enough to still have your mom, make sure that however you choose to celebrate her that she feels your love. Because that’s way more important than anything else you could possibly give her. Love you Mama, Happy Mother’s Day, Love, Andy
