This Mother’s Day is shaping up to be a little unconventional, and we’ll have to come up with different ways to celebrate this year while staying safe. Fortunately for you, you have us! And we’ve put our heads together to come up with a few ways you can make your mom’s day a little brighter.
Take part in an online paint and sip class
So many classes and workshops have been adapting to the unique circumstances to bring online workshops to your home. Try Canvas and Cocktails for affordable online classes and curbside pickup for materials (order or use your own supplies if you are not in the immediate area). Or take a class from The Paint Bar which can ship you supplies! You can either send this to your mom for her to enjoy or get two kits for the two of you to participate in simultaneously from your homes. (For a free option try Pinot & Picasso!)
Happy Hour together!
Speaking of sipping- you can support a local liquor store and send the gift of a good bottle of wine (or bourbon!) with Drizly in 60 minutes! Make sure to give your driver a good tip when you place the order. If Drizly isn’t available in your area Uncorked is another option (without the 60 minute delivery time) make sure to set your location to the correct area as you browse. Set up a video chat, grab a glass and have a virtual happy hour together!
Share a scrapbook
If we know anything about moms, it’s that they love seeing pictures of their kids, and you can make a free scrapbook online using Canva. It’s super easy to create a cute layout, import pictures and share with others online! You can video chat or screen share and walk down memory lane.
The gift of relaxation
For anyone looking to support the local economy and give a gift worth looking forward to, don’t forget spas, hairdressers, masseuses, nail salons, or any other services you can buy gift certificates for now! Not only will you help small businesses you will give your mom an experience she can eagerly await. (Can be paired with sending some chocolates, flowers, etc.for day-of enjoyment.)
Enjoy the arts
Does your mom have a refined taste in music and loves to watch a good classical concert? Now she can watch online with you and hit pause for all snack and bathroom breaks, win-win! Classic FM has aggregated a huge collection of major classical concerts and events that are live-streamed. You can even watch them at the same time with free software like Discord, here’s how to set up a video call with screen sharing that shares audio!
Virtual chocolate tastings
Is your mom a chocolate buff? We have great news, you can send her a chocolate tasting set that comes with a virtual, online chocolate tasting session from Cocoa Runners! If you are wary about the shipping length, Cocoa + Co. are also hosting their own virtual sessions with full-size samples.
