This year’s Mother’s Day is slightly different – understatement of the year! In 2020 most people will be spending Mother’s Day at home, away from their mothers, or confined to their homes with their bundles of joy. If anything, The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all into getting creative with socializing and celebrations – Mother’s Day is not different. 

This year you’re going to have to be a tad more creative with showing your mother figure how special they are to you. We have a few suggestions to make your mom’s or your own Mother’s Day THAT much more special. 

Mom does not cook on Mother’s Day. Period. 

Your favourite restaurants are open for delivery during level four lockdown. Order mom her favourite meal, or if you’re a mom, go onto MrD or Uber Eats and treat yourself – you deserve it!

Mom deserves flowers.

Flowers are always a good idea, and Netflorist and Bloomable are available for delivering you mom a floral arrangement to brighten up her day.

Mother’s Day gifts:

The best thing to do right now is to get mom an electronic gift voucher. Stores like WooliesSuperbalist and Takealot all have gift vouchers that would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift for your mom. 

Mother’s Day Gift To yourself:

The best gift you can give to yourself is an extra dose of self-care. Times are tough right now, but you need that time to yourself, and a DIY face mask is just the thing. Browse DIY face mask recipes with stuff in your pantry on Pinterest or Youtube. 

Start a Netflix series:

Schedule a video call with mom.

Ultimately, it’s all about your mom feeling appreciated for the sacrifice and unconditional love that they give without flinching.
