Make Your Mom Feel Special This Mother’s Day (Even While You’re Indoors)

Where would we be without our moms? Once a year, on the second Sunday of May, we pay tribute to all the amazing mothers out there who unfailingly love and support their children in all the days of their lives.

Moms are all superheroes and it’s only right that we make them feel extra special on this day to simply say “Thank you”, and show how much we love and appreciate them.

With the lockdown period still ongoing in many parts of the Philippines, you might be racking your brain for ways to celebrate Mother’s Day on May 10 without having to step out of the door. Although most of us are in quarantine, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make this day full of love and joy. After all, home is where the heart is.

You don’t have to step out of your house to make her feel special — here are some sweet ideas for celebrating Mother’s Day at home:

Prepare a delicious breakfast

Mothers Day Breakfast

Give your mom a day off by doing something special from the very moment she wakes up. Most moms wake up early to prepare to have breakfast ready on the table for the whole family, so why not return the favor on this special day?

Prepare a simple breakfast in bed and give your mom the tightest and warmest hug once she wakes up. You can also take it up a notch by preparing a delicious brunch or even dinner for the whole family! Prepare her favorite dishes for a day she will never forget.

Write your love

Nothing beats handwritten letters with heartfelt words. Take time to write a heartfelt Thank You letter to let her know how much you appreciate all the support and sacrifices she has made for the family throughout the years.

Why not make use of your scrapbooking skills and make your mom smile by getting creative with your Mother’s Day card? Here’s another idea: create an epic photo collage for her to keep and frame.

Give her origami flowers

Origami Flower

A bouquet of your mom’s favorite flowers is probably the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about what to give her on this special day. But with everyone on lockdown, buying flowers at a store can be risky and almost impossible. So why not make them yourself?

You don’t have to plant flowers for Mother’s Day… creating paper flowers can be a fun and creative way to make your gift special. Unlike real flowers, these ones won’t wilt or die. Take on origami and make something pretty for your mom this Mother’s Day.

Bake some goodies

Bake cookies

Baking has become a lot of people’s go-to activity during this stay-at-home period and why not join in on the fun? Whether it’s something you have done before or something altogether new, baking is a great way to spend some quality time with your mom — with the added bonus of delicious treats as a reward for your hard work.

Bake some fun-shaped cookies, cupcakes, or even fresh homemade bread that will surely bring a smile to your faces and keep your tummies full!

Take an online class together

It’s always fun to learn something new, especially now that we are on lockdown. Take the time to enroll in cooking lessons or subscribe to a class and learn a new hobby with your mom! There are several online courses available online that you can take that will surely make for a fun and enjoyable day with your mom.

Arrange a DIY spa day

Spa

Who said you can only relax and rejuvenate at a salon or spa? With materials that you can find at home, you can totally do it at your own house! Bring out those fancy soaps and bath bombs and arrange a relaxing spa day with your mom at home! Give her a nice foot massage or paint each other’s nails if you’re able.

Put on face masks together and take wacky selfies for your IG stories or try out some online skin product recipes that you can easily concoct with natural and organic ingredients available at home. Just look up videos and step-by-step instructions on how to make them online.

Organize a movie marathon

Take your moms in for a movie or TV show marathon!

Prepare some popcorn if available, some snacks, and drinks to complete the movie experience.
