This year, Mother’s Day – just like so many other celebrations – is looking a little different. If you’re not able to see your mum, or your little one’s grandmother in person for Mothering Sunday, we’ve got some fun ideas to celebrate motherhood and those special women in your life with your loved ones remotely!
Just because you’re not in the same place, doesn’t mean you can’t watch the same movie together at the same time! Pop on an old favourite, or something you’re both excited to watch and enjoy it together while video calling and chatting about the movie like you would if you were sitting right next to each other.
If you or your little one love to bake with your mum, set up a video call and bake together! Choose the same recipe for you both to bake and make them together. Then you can sit down for a cup of tea and eat them together too.
Think about going for a present that’s easy to mail to your loved one, so you can open it together over a video call. You could go for a hamper full of self-care goodies, a gift voucher for an experience you can look forward to doing together when lockdown is over, or even a My Little Sudocrem pot personalised with their name, which you can find here: https://personalised-sudocrem.com/
Get a craft project kit for both you and your loved one, something that you’ll be able to do together at an allotted time over video call e.g. cross stitch or painting by numbers. This will give you a set opportunity to make sure you spend some quality time together, even when you’re not together in person.
Put together a scrap book with your little one of those fun little moments that you’d love to share – both old memories, and moments with your children that they might have missed this year. Your children could make some special pictures and crafts to pop in that they’ll be able to cherish. Going through this together with a cup of tea over a video call on Mother’s Day will be a lovely way to reminisce about your favourite past moments, and celebrate present times too.
