How to celebrate Mother's Day while keeping her safe during COVID-19

May 09, 2020

Mother's day is almost here with us. It's a day to celebrate our mothers and anyone who has been a loving mother figure to us and make them feel like a queen for a day.

Unfortunately, due to the strict COVID - 19 measures like self-distancing and lockdown, it will be hard for us to celebrate Mother's day as we used to. But that doesn't mean you can't make the day special.

Here are some suggestions on how to celebrate Mother's day this year while keeping within the COVID - 19 rules in your area.

  1. Give flowers and homemade gifts

Mothers love to get presents on Mother's Day. Even with all the regulations, you can still send your mom something special this Mother's day like a bunch of her favorite flowers.

If sending your mother flowers from a flower shop is not an option, and she has a garden, you could give her a bouquet freshly picked from her garden instead.

You could also make a special keepsake craft for her. Some great options are jewelry, picture frames, and woven or knitted items such as sweaters or mats.

  1. Make beautiful gift cards

Making a DIY mother's day card and sending it over to her together with gifts such as perfume and chocolates is another way to put a smile on her face.

You can customize the card with things that are special to her. For example, add pictures of her grandkids or stick a gift voucher in there.

  1. Send your best wishes online


If you can't travel to your mom, you can still send your best wishes through social media platforms such as WhatsApp and Facebook. You could also wake her up as a family with a Skype call and share your best wishes for the day. Even a phone call where she can hear your voice and perhaps talk to other family members will make her feel special.

  1. Prepare a special meal

Pampering your mom on Mother's day with breakfast in bed, gifts, and a family dinner is one of the best things you can do for her.  As long as you adhere to the COVID  -19 restrictions in your area, such as self-distancing and sanitization, you can still enjoy a meal together.

  1. Gift of peace and quiet

As we adhere to the stay at home rules, most people have been indoors with moms doing most of the catering for everyone. This Mother's Day, give mom control of the remote and let her binge-watch her favorite shows in peace as you prepare her gifts and surprises.

  1. Pampering home beauty treatment


A mani and pedi for mom is also a great gift idea for Mother's day. She may not be able to visit the salon, but you could use a home pedicure kit to make her hands and feet beautiful. It will also be a great time to catch up on some fun family stories, like what you or her grandkids have been up to.

  1. Mother's day picnic outside

Trying to practice self - distancing while indoors could be challenging. A better option is to have a mother's day picnic outside. When you have a picnic outdoors, you can probably invite more people as long as you maintain the recommended 1.5-meter distance. It's a great way to give your mommy a day free from cooking and cleaning as she enjoys time with her family.

What are you planning to do for mom this Mother's day?

These are a few suggestions on how to celebrate Mother's Day. Whichever you pick, please ensure you stick to the recommended COVID - 19 restrictions to avoid any infections.

Happy Mother's day!
