If Mother’s Day (May 9) was around the corner in any other year, perhaps breakfast in bed or a fun day out with your mom would’ve been a great way to celebrate your hero, caregiver, friend (sometimes foe). However, with an ongoing lockdown across India, this special day reminds us how many of you might not get even the chance to be physically present with your mothers. But fret not, you can still show mom you care—even if distance has disturbed your fail-proof plans from the past.
A QUARANTINE-APPROVED DATE WITH MUM
Don’t just use Zoom or Google Meet for office meetings
Going virtual is the new normal. Set a time that’s convenient for both of you and send her an invite. Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to dress up. Ask your mom to put on her favourite outfit or jewelry too. You can even both cook your mom’s favourite recipe and try the same meals screen-to-screen.
SHOW GRATITUDE WITH A HANDWRITTEN LETTER
A warm, memorable way to make mom feel loved.
Yes, letters are old-school but this is also the reason why they’re so meaningful. A handwritten letter is also a good way to stop monotony and put an end to non-stop virtual time. Letters always add a sense of emotion to whatever you’re doing. They are truly sublime.
PLAN A ‘NETFLIX PARTY’ WITH MOM
All you need is a Netflix subscription.
Make Mother’s Day into a movie night with Netflix Party. If you’re wondering which movies to watch then consider these suggestions: Mother’s Day, Bad Moms, Mamma Mia, Lady Bird and Dumplin’.
MAKE MOM INTO ART
Time to get creative.
You don’t have to be an artist to do this. Think about what you want to say to your mom and turn it into an artwork she will cherish for life. You don’t necessarily have to draw. You can make a collage with old photographs, stick fallen dried flowers or drizzle some paint around. If you’re savvy digitally, then make use of your skills and send her a digital artwork.
