Mother’s Day is a wonderful holiday that honours moms for all the things they do for their families all year. This is a great time to show your appreciation for your mom or the mother of your kids by making the whole day about her. But what do you have planned to gift mom on Mother’s Day during a pandemic or a lockdown?
Top 10 Mother’s Day Gift Lockdown Ideas
At the present time in Ontario, you can only be with the people living with you in your household and not visit anyone else, indoors or outdoors (unless another person is living alone), which will make it challenging on Mother’s Day. We have came up with some gift ideas for Mother’s Day that will still make the day special!
Since restaurants are not allowed to serve sit down meals, you can pay for mom’s favourite take out food and have it delivered to her. You can even eat a virtual meal together via Zoom or Skype.
2. Online Classes
An ideal Mother’s Day gift is to purchase online classes that you can do together. Many single or weekly programs are now offered via Zoom including fitness, meditation, Reiki, arts and crafts, and cooking. It’s a fun and exciting way to spend time virtually with mom.
3. Staycation Getaway
Gift mom with a staycation getaway, so she doesn’t have to cook and clean for a day or two. She can also take it when the provincial lockdown measures are no longer in place or not as strict.
4. Streaming Services
Purchase a monthly or yearly subscription-based streaming service such as Netflix or Crave. She can spend some quiet and relaxing time at home watching TV shows and movies without commercials.
5. For The Outdoorsy Mom
For moms that love the great outdoors, gift her with a gift card from a sports store. She can purchase apparels to wear when she goes out for a nature hike or walk through her neighbourhood.
6. Gift Mom A Homemade Spa Package
7. Virtual Local Events
Take part together in one of the virtual local events in your area. You can view many online shows, musicians, and cultural groups via Zoom. Some are free while others will ask for donations or a fee. You can visit websites like Eventbrite to see what is happening in your area. Grab a glass of wine during the event and chat with mom via text, DM, or the telephone!
8. Support Local Businesses
Support a local business such as a bakery, nursery, greenhouse, or florist by gifting mom with pastries, a Mother’s Day cake, flowers, plants, or shrubs.
9. Gift Mom Fun Experiences
Spend time just the two of you or with family members doing a virtual secret theme trivia night, a virtual escape room, or throwing a memorable virtual bash by gifting mom with one of these fun experiences.
10. Massage Session
Gift mom with 1 hour massage session with a registered massage therapist. This will help her relieve all the stress and anxiety that accumulated in her body during these difficult pandemic times.
What you do or purchase is not as important as taking the time to call her or be with your mom virtually on her special day during the lockdown! She will still cherish these memories for a lifetime and so will you!
