This upcoming Mother’s Day will be my first Mother’s Day with my son here. Though I was pregnant last Mother’s Day and still celebrated in a way, this is a lot more special for me as it probably is for a lot of mothers out there. And with most of the world being in quarantine, it’s been difficult to figure out how we are going to celebrate this day and still make it special. Many of us are not near our own mothers or the other mother figures in our lives, but I want to share with you all how to still make the day special and enjoy Mother’s Day during quarantine.

CONNECT VIRTUALLY TO CELEBRATE MOTHER’S DAY DURING QUARANTINE
Many of us have already done the Zoom or Facetime calls and social gatherings, so I am not going to spend too much time going over that tip. If you haven’t done it yet, I highly suggest doing especially for holidays such as this. Being able to connect with family and see their face and talk to them makes a huge difference in getting through this time and making it a special Mother’s Day during quarantine.
Everyone loves surprises, so even though you may not be able to spend Mother’s Day in person, there’s still a way to celebrate the mothers that are in your life by surprising them with something special. If you haven’t already, definitely place some orders for some gifts and some cards. I went to Hallmark online and ordered some special cards and then searched around Amazon for some special gifts to put together Mother’s Day gift baskets/boxes. Then depending on where you are either ship them or if you feel comfortable enough to leave the house, drop them on the doorstep of your mother figure then go sit in your car. Once you’re at a safe distance for social distancing, let her know they have a surprise at the door and watch as she opens the door to find her surprise. I’ll be sharing some Mother’s Day gift ideas on my LikeToKnow.It account so make sure to follow me there!
MAKE A FUTURE DATE
Just like Valentine’s Day and Father’s Day, Mother’s Day is not the only day to celebrate Mother’s Day, so make a future day to celebrate. Send your gifts, surprises, and or cards and do you get together virtually for the day of, but then make a date to do something together once the quarantine ends. Maybe it’s a spa day together or a fun cookout or even dinner. Then during the outing, you can reflect upon how you celebrated Mother’s Day and talk about how people used their gifts and how much they loved them.
