7 Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day at Home

7 Ways to Celebrate Mother's Day at Home

Thank you mom!! We can never utter those words enough, right?! With everything they do for us and for all of the love they give, moms deserve a magical Mother’s Day celebration- even during quarantine! (Let’s hear it for all of the mamas out there who are conquering this homeschool/work-from-home challenge!!)

Since Mother’s Day will probably look a little different this year, we’ve put together seven fun and meaningful ways you can celebrate mom from home, whether she’s right there with you, or far away. You may not be able to take mom out for dinner, or treat her to a shopping spree at the mall, but there are plenty of ways to show her you care.

1. Treat Her to Brunch in Bed

We don’t know a single mom out there who doesn’t LOVE brunch food! Get the family together, whip up some pancakes, fruit, and eggs and treat mom to a delicious breakfast in bed. She deserves to sleep in today! You can also make mom a delicious mimosa or Prosecco cocktail with our favorite recipes here!

2. An At-Home Spa Day

Treat mom to mud masks, mani-pedis, and essential oils right on the comfortable living room couch. It’s so easy to gather some skincare and selfcare essentials and let mom soak up all of that luxury. Here are some great guides to inspire you:

3. Send Mom on a Scavenger Hunt

Mom will LOVE this! We guarantee it! Take some time to write some sweet thank you cards to your mom. Tell her how much you appreciate everything she does for you, tell her how much you love her, and describe your favorite things about her. Young kids can also draw special pictures for mom. Hide your notes throughout the house and send mom on a scavenger hunt to find them!

4. Cook Her a Special Meal

A common Mother’s Day outing is to go out to a restaurant. Why not bring the restaurant to mom?! Set up a nice dinner table and make mom’s favorite meal! If you want to get outside, you can even make it a picnic in the yard. (PS- make sure you take care of all of the clean-up so mom doesn’t have to!!)

5. DIY Together

It may not be possible to celebrate with mom in person this year and that’s ok. You can still make her feel loved and appreciated from afar. Schedule a Skype or Zoom call with her so that you can take some time to sit and chat together. You can even share a virtual meal or movie night together though you’re separated! Spending time together face-to-face will make mom’s day, even if you can’t go give her a big hug.
