Mother's Day is one of our absolute favorite holidays! This is the day we get to show mom just home much we love and cherish her. It's NOT always about the gifts believe it or not. Most mothers are simply happy with just spending some quality time with you. Like most of us, we're sure your city is still under quarantine. No worries tho, we're giving you 7 idea's on how to quarantine and still make this Mother's Day one to remember with Mom.
1) Breakfast in Bed
Start Mom's day off right with a beautiful surprise. Wake her up to "Breakfast in Bed". Cook up her favorites and don't forget the bubbly. After all Mother's Day does fall on a Sunday, and what's a Sunday without BRUNCH?! If you can't be there with her IRL, order coffee and breakfast from her fav local spot and have it delivered right when she wakes up.
2) Movie Night
Have a poppin' movie night with Mom! Literally! Pop some fresh popcorn and cozy up on the couch or in the bed with mom. To help you out a bit, we're giving you 12 delicious spices and treats to mix with your popcorn to add some flavor to the night. Yum! Now, don't forget that's only half of the battle, you still have to find the perfect movie, classic theater snacks, and a little wine never hurt.
3) Mani's & Pedi's for Mom!
YEESSSS!! Mom is going to love you forever with this one. Ladies, it's been about 7-8 weeks since our nail salons have closed down, meaning our hands and feet are probably looking a little rough (eyebrows included, but we won't go there.) Give mom a pick me up with an at home Mani + Pedi situation. Include some fresh flowers in her pedi water and follow and at home DIY Mani + Pedi Tutorial. Make it special by applying that face mask that you've been having in your bathroom for two months now, and don't forget mom's favorite wine to set the mood.
4) Paint + Sip Party (right at home)
Order you and mom an at home paint kit for you and her to enjoy from the comfort of the living room. The best part about this is all packages come with all of the supplies included. Canvas, paint, brushes, and even a hanging kit so you can display your masterpiece up on your walls. Below are some of our favorite comapny's who we've seen do this well.
5) Cook a Meal with Mom
Get in the kitchen with mom and let her teach you a thing or two. This would be a perfect time to show off you kitchen skills by creating family dish together, or learn the secret ingredient in granny's sweet potato pie. Yummyyyy. Have fun with mom. And if you really wanna make a statement, order you guys matching aprons for when you step in the kitchen together.
6) Host a virtual Happy Hour
Since we still cannot gather in large groups, why not get together with the people you love or a virtual Happy Hour? BYOB and klink klink with family and friends right from the dining room table. There so many benefits to this. You don't have to drive your self home. You can have the bottle to yourself if you like, you get to spend quality time with mom and the fam, but best of all you can start sipping at any time! Here's a few apps that will allow you to connect with your friends and family virtually to keep the party going.
7) Get Mom a Gift Card to her Favorite Shop.
Listen, you can NEVER go wrong with a gift card. Mom's LOVE these things. Especially the ones who like to do their own shopping. It's nothing wrong with buying mom a heart felt gift, but sometime we struggle with the thought of "Hmmm what does mom need that she doesn't already have." Let her figure that part out, lol. You'll be happy you did. Speaking of E-Gift Cards, did you know we just launched ours?! Get your CalhounnuohlaC E-Gift Card now to celebrate the mom's in your life.
And if you feel like the idea of a gift card isn't grand enough all on it's own, pair it with one of the six ideas from above. Everybody loves a little face to face interaction especially during these uncertain times.
