Mother’s Day is an annual celebration to remind us to cherish the relationships we have with our mother.
“Mother’s love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.” - Eric Fromm.
Though we should love and cherish our mothers every day of the year, Mother’s Day is a meaningful holiday to celebrate the women - moms, grandmas, aunts - that we love the most. How will you be honouring your mom this Mother’s Day?
This year some Mother’s Day traditions like fancy restaurant dinners or a shopping spree are quite impossible, but with some thought and creativity, you can still celebrate Mother’s Day in the comfort of your own home. Here are some ways and experiences to celebrate Mother’s Day while staying safely at home.
- Breakfast in Bed
Start her day with her favourite breakfast! This one is a bit of a no brainer but who does not enjoy waking up to some breakfast in bed? You can choose to personally cook her favourite dishes or if you are not able to be with her in real life, you can order from her favourite breakfast spot and deliver to her right when she wakes up.
- Have a Movie Marathon Together
When was the last time you watched a movie with your mom? Celebrate this Mother’s Day with her favourite movies and snacks. Since you are stuck at home and have nothing to do, make use of that time by getting cosy and spending some quality time with your mom over some good movies!
- Bake Together
Does your mom love to bake or have a favourite dessert? Bake something sweet with your mom this Mother’s Day and enjoy it with the whole family!
- Give Her a Pamper Session
Even though it might not be a “spa experience”, you can still give your mom some rest and relaxation by doing a mani-pedi for her! It’s time to let her sit back and relax, for a change you can do the house chores, get hands-on and show her that you care by pampering her this Mother’s Day!
- Do Something New With Her
Think of something your mom has always wanted to check off her list. For example, learning how to make pottery or to paint etc. Your mom is always cheering you on to try new things, now it is your turn to support her as well. Get some supplies and learn a new skill with her!
- Raise a Glass To Your Mom
Though you are not able to take her to a fancy bar this Mother’s Day, you can get her favourite wine or make her favourite cocktail. After dinner, surprise your mom with a drink and dedicate this day to her.
"If love is as sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love." - Stevie Wonder
We hope you all have a pleasant and fun Mother's Day this weekend. Remember to love and cherish your Mom every day.
