This Mother’s Day might look a little bit different from past Mother’s day due to the pandemic that has swept across the nation and the world.

Cook for Mom
Another great idea for Mother’s Day weekend that doesn’t take too much planning is cooking a meal for Mom. Whether she loves breakfast-in-bed, late-night snack foods, or a comforting meal that brings her family home, cooking for your Mom is something you can’t just order online for her. She will appreciate not only the thought but also the effort as well.
Also, don’t feel pressured to make her favorite food! If your Mom is the chef of the house, getting her favorite take out food for dinner would mean she can focus on spending time with everyone, and less timing cooking in the kitchen for her special day.
More Photographs for Mom
Moms love receiving pictures of their children and grandchildren, so making a photo collage or giving her updated photo prints will surely bring a smile to Mom’s face. Especially if she hasn’t been able to visit or see the kiddos lately due to the pandemic. Vistaprint and Shutterfly have great gifts that allow you to use your cute photos and print them on custom throw pillows, sleeping blankets, and mugs.
Whether you are close in proximity to your mom or keeping social distance for everyone’s health and safety, you can always make her day special with a text message, meaningful post on Facebook, or simple phone call. Just hearing the words, “Happy Mother’s Day” is special so don’t overthink it.
No matter how you decide to spoil your Mother this Mother’s Day, remember that material gifts fade in time, but memories last forever. Document her special day and let Mom know how much you love and appreciate her. She won’t forget what you did for her when she looks back on this Mother’s Day together.
