Mother’s day has always been an essential day of the year; it’s a day that’s entirely devoted to our mothers. A woman that has helped us grow to learn and mature over time, and since this day is of importance for her, it becomes massively important to us as well. Since we were a kid, she got so happy with the gifts we gave her. Be it something handmade, or something that we bought by saving up on our pocket money. Those gifts were of such importance to her, scratch that maybe they still are.
But as we grow old, those little gifts started to feel less valuable, even though our mothers would love anything that we got her. For us, it just never seems to be enough, because the woman that gave us life how can we ever repay her, and as we grow old these thoughts simply consume our way of thinking. Consume it in a way where we just don’t understand the real meaning of mother’s day and just start to give her half apologetic gifts that don’t even mean anything. Gifts that only make up for the fact of how we missed her calls and messages over the year.
But since this is the time of quarantine, and everyone seems to be home without any prior obligation, this year is the perfect time to give her a gift that all she wanted from when you were younger. ‘Your Time’, Yes! Just a simple thing. All she asks for a gift on her special day is your time, and here to help you give her just what she wants are five tips to make mother’s day special during the social distancing period of quarantine.
GIVE HER A SPECIAL LITTLE PARADE
Due to social distancing, you can’t travel to other cities, but luckily if your mother lives around you somewhere. Then why not give her a special parade to show her how appreciated she is this mother’s day, the parade doesn’t even have to be a big one. A small one with your siblings and friends will suffice. You can sneak out early, completely redecorate the driveway with special little messages for her, and then as soon as morning comes, you can do a slow drive-by while she stands on that window sill and watch feeling all special, and cared for from the inside.
PLAN A VIRTUAL PARTY
You can’t go out to meet her, and you aren’t able to do a little drive-by parade for her. Don’t worry! You can plan a virtual party just for her, as we said initially spending time with her is all she wants. What better way to spend time during this quarantine then being in a group chat with all her beloved children. Heck if you want to make things lively, maybe plan a roast for your dear old pop as well, that’s bound to make your mom crack a huge smile, and being in a virtual party of her own she’ll be like the star you all got together to appreciate.
SHOW HER THE THINGS YOU LOVE
If there is one thing that a parent always desire, is to be more involved with how their child is doing. They like hearing about even the slightest event in our day because they’re the only people in our life that show a genuine interest since birth to adulthood. So, this mother’s day if you are planning some time with why not show her your favorite podcasts, video, movies, show her your girlfriend if you have one. Tell her about all the crazy things you do with your friends, just let her know how much she means to you, and how even as you grow old she’s the most important person in the world with whom, you can talk about anything with at any time you like.
PICK UP HER FAVORITE MEAL
Glad the restaurants aren’t closed in this time of quarantine since takeaway and delivery is open. Why don’t you, pick up her favorite meal from any of the places she likes to eat, buy the cake she loves, and then head on home to have some dinner with her. That is if you carefully sanitize yourself first because people with an elderly status are quite likely to be infected. You can even use a discount website like Group on, or Cuponism MY, to get deals on hazmat suits or bubble balls. That is not only safe but also fun to wear.
SEND HER A QUARANTINE KIT
Last but not least, ending this blog post with the most common thing that everyone would plan to give is a quarantine kit. No doubt, this is the most reasonable gift you can give your mother during quarantine this year, but instead of just following the norm, why not change the quarantine kit with things she loves? Make it a surprise for her, by adding flowers, her favorite chocolates, some pictures of yourself with friends, pack in her favorite meal, and a special handmade card just like you used to make as a kid.
By doing these things you are bound to make her day special this year, even when she’s in isolation, and even when she’s feeling alone on her special day if you do all of the things mentioned on this list. Then for this day, and many to come in this isolation period. She will always be happy and will always be loved by her children’s.
