New Delhi: It goes without saying that mothers are special and making them feel important shouldn't be reserved to a day. This year too we are all home-quarantined due to the global pandemic but the only good thing about it is we get to celebrate some extra time with our families and especially with our moms. Here are some fun ideas for celebrating Mother's day at home.
Go for a socially distanced walk
If you live in close enough proximity, you could always arrange a leisurely stroll on Mothering Sunday - there’s nothing like a brisk walk, takeaway coffee and catch up with your mum.
Go big with balloons
While flowers are a traditional Mother's Day gesture, balloons are the modern-day version. Make her smile with a buoyant gift that also doubles up as a fabulous Zoom backdrop.
Write her a letter
Keep the art of letter writing alive by penning a heartfelt message to your mother. We may think lots of wonderful things about our loved ones, but how often do we actually tell them?
Bake a cake together
Send the ingredients in the post so that on Mother’s Day you are both set to make Mary Berry proud. You can link up on Zoom and sync up your steps to bake something beautiful together.
Share your favourite photographs
Collate all of your happiest memories and put them together as a thoughtful gift. If your mum is old school, consider a scrapbook or you could create a video slideshow if that’s more her style.
Brighten her day with jewellery
Your mum may be living in comfy clothes like the rest of us, but we're sure a new necklace or pair of earrings will elevate her lockdown attire.
Give her the gift of a good night's sleep
There's nothing more magical than a full eight hours of shut-eye, and we are sure your mother agrees.
There’s nothing quite like a handmade gift, and we are sure your beloved mother would agree. From a macramé plant hanger to a clay jewellery dish, get creative!
