We have a feeling moms everywhere could use a little extra love this year. Whether you’re huddled up with her, taking extra precautions to socially distance yourselves or wishing her a happy Mother’s Day from far away, here are a few different ways to make her feel special.
Video call like you’ve never video called before.
Turn this year’s casual chat into a video call that says, “Thanks for everything, Mom. I love you even more than you know,” but with an interactive twist. Have a virtual Mother’s Day brunch together, interview Mom with a sweet Q&A session about her favorite childhood memories, walk her through a cooking demonstration that shows off the kitchen knowledge she passed on to you or use group video chat to host a “How well do you know my mom?” virtual trivia game with a few special guests.
Pull off the best brunch ever.
When the days start to seem like they’re blending together, it’s even more important to make Mother’s Day feel extra significant. Start prepping early by gathering ingredients for a brunch menu. Get the kids involved assembling yogurt, granola and fruit parfaits to keep brunch delicious and easy, and make sure to take care of the extras, like setting the table with bunches of fresh tulips, chilling her favorite rosé and clearing the dishes. It’s the thought that counts most here, and she’ll appreciate your thoughtful touches.
Drop off the mother of all care packages.
If it’s safe to do so, gather a few of Mom’s favorite things and necessities, and leave them on her doorstep. Think of things that would brighten her day, like Aura Cacia essential oils, potted herbs, her favorite dessert or wine, Whole Foods Market Facial Sheet Masks, bath salts and bath bombs. Share a little extra sweetness with bars of her favorite chocolate or a sweet springtime Blackberry Lime Cake. And don’t forget the flowers — Whole Trade roses are an especially beautiful way to share a sentiment of love that starts with the farms and farmworkers who grow them.
