Mother’s Day: 5 Ways to Show Your Mom You Care During the Quarantine

Posted on May 01, 2020 by Andrea Forsberg

As most of the country remains indoors while the COVID-19 pandemic continues, lots of people are wondering how they’re going to celebrate upcoming events and holidays. Mother’s Day is approaching fast. If you’re not sure how you can celebrate with your mom this year, try not to worry. 

Thanks to technology, it’s easier than ever before to connect with the people you love across long distances. Many businesses are still operating their delivery services while maintaining social distancing practices. Whether you live across town or across the country from your mother, you still have plenty of options when it comes to showing her that you care this Mother’s Day despite the quarantine.

Send Flowers

Every mom loves receiving flowers for Mother’s Day, and they might be appreciated even more this year considering the gloomy atmosphere surrounding the ongoing health crisis. Flower Works is open for delivery during the quarantine, and we’re committed to providing our customers with the service they need to send flowers to the people they love. If you’re worried about being unable to enjoy a meal with mom this Mother’s Day, spend the day shopping, or enjoying the outings you typically enjoy to celebrate each year, sending flowers through Flower Works is an available alternative to let her know you’re still thinking about her and appreciate all she does. 

Just Call Her!

Your Mom just wants to hear from you. During the ongoing crisis, she’ll want to know that you’re safe and healthy. While text messaging has become the most common way to keep in touch these days, a simple phone call to your mother may mean more than you realize. Hearing your voice will be a relief, and she’ll appreciate you taking the time to wish her a happy Mother’s Day and chat for a bit. 

Host a Video Call

If you want to take a phone call a step further, hosting a video call is a great option. Most modern smartphones come with this capability as a standard feature, and there are countless apps you can use with a desktop computer or laptop to complete a video call. If you can’t get together in person due to the pandemic, you can still enjoy a face-to-face conversation with mom this Mother’s Day. 

Buy Her a Gift Certificate

If you want to get Mom a gift this Mother’s Day, shopping options may be rather limited until the quarantine lifts. Instead, purchase a gift card or gift certificate that she can use during or after the lockdown. If you can’t arrange a video call, you could record a video message to send along with your gift card for a more personalized touch. 

Get Creative

If you’re not sure what to get for Mom this year and need to think of something that you can get to her despite the lockdown, getting creative and sending her something handmade is a great option. Don’t think of making Mom a card as too childish; you can create something beautiful and polished from home using a variety of media, so think of the things your mom loves the most and try to think of something truly unique. 

These are just a few ideas to help you connect with your mom this Mother’s Day despite the new reality caused by COVID-19.
