The pandemic may have kept us apart from our loved ones for the past year, but it’s going to take more than a virus to undermine the bond between a mother and child! This Mother’s Day, show Mom how much you care with these clever tips and gift ideas—even if you can’t be together on Sunday, May 9.
Set up a video call. If you’ll be celebrating Mother’s Day from afar, be sure to pencil in some face time with Mom, albeit virtually. This might entail some advance planning if your favorite mother needs help installing or getting acquainted with a video-conferencing app or software. Take a moment to get her up and running in advance so that your time together won’t be interrupted by technical difficulties.
Say it with flowers. A bouquet of fresh blooms is the quintessential Mother’s Day gift. And while there’s nothing necessarily “original” about gifting her flowers, it’s the thought that counts, particularly if you request that the vase or bouquet includes her favorite stems. Don’t skip a meaningful note! If Mom’s just not into flowers, consider sending her takeout from her favorite restaurant instead!
Send a photo gift. Texts are great and all, but a picture speaks a thousand words. Why not gift Mom with a custom-made photo album of some of your favorite memories together? Alternatively, a digital photo frame is the perfect way to instantly share photos with your mom. You can send the photos to her frame at the touch of a button, so she can connect with you via your most recent photo-worthy moments.
