The Mother’s Day celebrations in 2020 demand a different approach. You very well know the single main reason behind it: Lockdown!
So, no-cafe hopping for brunch or dinners, no shopping spree, no weekend getaways. In a nutshell, No customary Mother’ Day rituals.
But, as they say, “viruses don’t infect emotions,” we have come up with a Homemade Mother’s Day plan.
From emotions to fun, everything intact, these ideas will make her feel special; just like always.
Are you ready for the quarantine Mother’s Day?
Breakfast in Bed
Let her start the day on a crunchy-munchy note. For a day, take over her kitchen (she may not like it, but eventually she will). Prepare your mother or grandmother’s favourite breakfast. You can include a variety of dishes that they both like. Place it on a tray with a bunch of flowers to brighten up their Mother’s Day morning.
Soak in Yogic Vibes:
After a nice-intimate breakfast moment, it’s time for some yogic vibes. On the terrace or the balcony, create a conducive environment for yoga and meditation practices. Roll out the mats, light up the incense sticks, and Om Shanti Om. This mini yoga break will help the moms to relax and unwind. They need the most, and this is one good time to help them sink into the practice.
Every year, you give her a gift of relaxation and rejuvenation by taking her to the spa. This year, times are challenging. You cannot go to the spa, but the spa can come to you. Yes, all you need is a bubble bath soap, bathrobe, rose petals, and scented candles. Turn her bathroom into a spa lounge and let her pamper herself a bit. She would love her ‘me-time.’
Handcraft a Gift:
While she is pampering and having a great spa time, why don’t you craft something for her? Mother’s Day is incomplete without gifts. And no gift screams of emotions as loud as handmade gifts. So, get started. You can make a greeting card like you used to do in your childhood days or you can take inspiration from social media to craft something beautiful for her. Pinterest, Youtube is full of DIY gifts for Mothers Day.
Tea Time Bonding:
Quarantine has given us the pleasure to spend time with our family. In the daily hush-rush, we hardly get the chance to sit and talk with our mothers. There is so much to tell and learn from her that we have been missing. This is the time. Make some tea, and bind over with each other. Beautiful vista, hot tea, and chit-chat, perfect!
Mother’s Day call for celebrations. And celebrations are best done with something sweet; like a cake.
Either you can bake love for her, or you can go for contactless delivery of cakes being offered by some of the reputed online bakeries.
As per your choice, comfort, and convenience arrange for a cake and end the Mother’s Day on a sweet note.
So, these were the six ideas to celebrate Mother’s Day at home in a fun and loving manner.
You may not be able to do something grand for her, but it’s always the small gestures that leave the lasting impression. See ya, Sunday!
