FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $80. (USA + CANADA)

Dear moms, aunts, sisters, grandmothers, and moms of the heart —  physical distancing isn’t going to stop us from expressing our gratitude this Mother’s Day! And even though we can’t go out to dinner or curl up on the couch for a Gilmore Girls marathon, there are so many ways to show our love from afar during quarantine.  From Zoom brunches to DIY gifts, here are seven ways to celebrate Mother’s Day no matter where you are.

7 sweet ways to celebrate Mother’s day during quarantine

1. Plan a Zoom get together

If you can’t get together in person, virtually is the next best thing! Zoom brunches, virtual movie nights featuring her fave flick, and Zoom dinner parties are sweet ways to lift everyone’s spirit in the name of Mother’s Day. Make it extra special by sharing fun mom memories throughout the call. Not that into Zoom? FaceTime, Skype, and WhatsApp are also easy ways to connect virtually… without having to send links and explain how the mute button works.

P.S. if you go with the Zoom option, consider hitting the record button! 

2. Share a video message

Share a little piece of yourself with a Mother’s Day video. By voicing a quick note of appreciation or a happy memory, you’ll show that you’re thinking of her. 🥰And the best part: she can watch it long after Mother’s Day is over.

Or if you live locally to your momma, you can have a Love Actually moment with something sweet like this (see above).

3. Order takeout from her favorite restaurant

You may not be able to make your mom cinnamon rolls for breakfast in bed — but you can still gift the gift of a good meal! Find out if one of her favorite local restaurants is doing takeout or delivery. You’ll not only show your mom (or friend, aunt, sister, or grandma) that you care, you’ll also support a local business.

However, if you’re concerned about eating takeout during quarantine, gift cards to restaurants, Uber Eats, and Postmates are also ways to share the love of food without having to order anything right away. FYI, here’s a Vox article that cleared up a lot of our questions about food safety and the coronavirus.

4. Make DIY gifts

Get in touch with your creative side and make your mom something homemade! DIY gifts are so personal and thoughtful, and are often eco-friendly (no plastic packaging or extensive production processes). Plus, you get to take control of shipping without waiting for companies to mail your items, which is a huge stress-relieving bonus.

You can go for something as simple as making a Mother’s Day card or whipping up yummy baked goods (like these cookies). But if you want to kick things up a notch, try one of these DIY projects:

5. Put together a care package of your mom’s favorites

Gather up your mom’s favorite things and make her a curated care package. So, if your mom loves to cook, consider investing in our Wholesome Culture Cookbook, along with some of her favorite cooking spices and oils. Or if she’s a self-care guru, we love to gift our natural, organic Rosehip and Jojoba Oils, this cozy robe, and our cozy A Little More Kindness, A Little Less Judgement crew or Bee Kind crew.

6. Give her blooms

Ok, this may not be the most out-of-the-box idea, but if you ask us… flowers are always a good idea on Mother’s Day! Send colorful sunshine right to your mom’s doorstep and take advantage of the many flower delivery services. We’re partial to flowers from Bouqs Company because they partner with eco-friendly farms that minimize waste, recycle water, and use sustainable growing practices. 💐

7. Donate

Donating to a cause your mom cares about is a beautiful and gracious way to show you care.

For inspiration, here are three mom-centered nonprofits we love:

  • Every Mother Counts works to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for everyone, everywhere. And read about how they’re helping mothers during COVID-19.
  • Women in Need provides safe housing and critical services to help homeless women and their children rebuild their lives and break the cycle of homelessness.
  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is on a mission to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking.
  • Mamas For Mamas supports mothers and caregivers in crisis by providing support for individuals and families facing poverty-related struggles. Check out their #InThisTogether campaign to raise money for Canadian mothers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
