There’s nothing a mother loves more than being surrounded by love on Mother’s Day... Usually, that’s with brunches, and while that may seem like a daunting task this year, here are 3 ways to celebrate her in all her glory, while keeping safe at home.
1. Give her a day off.
In addition to sending flowers, how about using your sharpened quarantine culinary skills to create a delicious gourmet meal at home. If cooking isn't your specialty then use a same-day delivery service like FoodKick to have your favorite prepared meals and a refreshing bottle (or two) delivered to your door. You can't go wrong with these favorites Finca Wölffer Rosé Mendoza or Whispering Angel Côtes de Provence Rosé.
Remember, she should truly have this one day to herself. Make her feel as pampered as possible - give her a much-needed break and keep the noisy kids the heck away from Mom and entertained. ;)
2. Send her good vibes.
You may not be able to physically fill the space around her with love, but you can send her a care package that does. If the mom in your life isn't under the same roof with you, make your own gift box and leave it at her doorstep. Get creative and put together a luxurious sensory experience that she can enjoy at home with some goodies that you can find at your local chemists like candles, incense, bath salts, a crystal (or this crystal water bottle below), a couple of face masks, and body oil.
It's all about the little reminders to let her know she is a kick-ass mother full of life, and love and she deserves some time to chill out. Here are some of my favorite picks...
3. Organize a virtual boozy bottomless brunch.
Although we are staying home this year, you can still find ways to spend quality time. Arrange a virtual boozy brunch with your besties. Get up and do your makeup and hair, put on your most extravagant dress because WHY THE HELL NOT!, and have your partner set the table up and make you a special breakfast. Turn on your favorite playlist (click here for mine) and pop open a bottle of champagne and Zoom away!
