Unique Quarantine Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day
Unique Quarantine Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day
Spa Days, Rooftop Bars, and Brunches. All the things we will not be able to spoil our beloved Mothers with this Mother’s Day. From experience, most of us google for weeks trying to figure out the perfect gift to show our appreciation and undying gratitude for the years of love and affection bestowed upon us. They raised us, loved us, taught us right from wrong and they will never let us forget the nine (or in my case 10) months they carried us.
If you’re like me, you weren’t always the perfect angel they make us out to be and boy was I a handful! Between the tantrums, sneaking out, and disrespect it’s no wonder we feel so inclined to give them the perfect day. For some, this means a bouquet of flowers delivered, while others opt for some quality time. This year, neither are options. This year, we need to be extra creative and I’m here to give you some quality ideas for the perfect Quarantine Mother’s Day!
Virtual Paint Night
Ship a Paint By Numbers set to both your mom and yourself, grab a glass of wine and have a lovely Paint Night over Video Chat. I assure you she will appreciate the quality time and in the end, you can compare your work and see who did it best! To add to the fun, get on Zoom and invite all the siblings to join!
Provide the Ultimate Spa Day Experience
in the comfort of her home. Arianna Skincare has an Ultimate Women's Body Spa Kit that contains everything you need for a luxurious night in. An Ultra Exfoliating Body Treatment that will leave her skin silky smooth. An Ultra Hydrating Body Butter that will protect her skin from drying out and is incredible for foot rubs! A Rejuvenating Nail Treatment Bag including everything you need for a Mani-Pedi as well as a Hydrating Mineral Body Lotion to complete the treatment. This is a super special gift for both your mom and yourself, which is why Arianna Skincare has decided that if you spoil her with this set, you will receive a second full size set for yourself!
Although social distancing guidelines prohibit us from coming into contact with one another, a wonderful way to show your love would be to hand-deliver Dinner. Make your mom her favorite meal, add a bottle of wine and a handwritten note. Leave it at her doorstep and take a few steps back. When she opens the door, refrain from running to hug her and enjoy the smile and surprise as she opens the Delivery and reads your note. This one is guaranteed to bring tears to her eyes and yours.
Recreate an old photo
This one is an old favorite of mine. Grab one of those silly pictures from your childhood that your mom has hanging around the house and recreate it. For the ideal gift, frame it and replace it with the old one. See how long it takes her to notice! Keep in mind the photo does not necessarily have to be silly when you were young, but they may look absolutely ridiculous to recreate as adults. The more absurd they look the more likely this will bring out a genuine laugh that is so scarce in these times.
Send a Handwritten Letter.
Remember back in the day when you received a handwritten letter? I am sure your Mothers do. Imagine them going to the mailbox on Mother’s Day and instead of bills and junk mail they see a handwritten letter addressed to them. Upon opening it they realize it is a heartfelt letter expressing the love and appreciation you have for them. If you live close by you can also put it in their mailbox before they wake up to ensure it is delivered on time.
For all those long nights she stayed up waiting for you to get home, all those calls you didn’t answer, and all the times you didn’t appreciate her. Show her on this day how much you truly love her. Show her how much you care. Do something special and out of the ordinary especially now during these difficult times because it will mean that much more.
To My Mother:
Through the years of chemo when I thought there was no hope, you were always by my side. Although my doctors always provided me with the physical care that I needed, you were the one keeping me alive. The one that always showed me the light when I only saw darkness. All those longs nights you sat with me when I needed you and even when I lied and said I didn’t. Putting your own life aside and helping me put mine back together. I will forever be grateful to you for always being by my side and I want you to know that I will always be by yours. Thank you for everything you are and everything you have encouraged me to be. I would not be who I am today without you. I love you.
