Mother’s Day is on May 9, and while ideally celebrated in person, many of us are having to do so from a distance. We know that following appropriate precautions is essential to keep ourselves, our loved ones, and communities safe, so we’ve put together a list of safe, creative ways you can celebrate Mom this year.
Video calls have become a staple for many people over the past year to connect with friends and loved ones. Connecting virtually with Mom this Mother’s Day can be a great alternative to seeing her in person. Whether you connect one-to-one or invite the whole family, it can be an enjoyable occasion. You could consider watching one of her favourite shows or movies together, enjoying a meal or happy hour, or hosting a family game night.
If your loved one doesn’t have access to a device that can be used for video calling or is unfamiliar with the platform, Seasons team members can help them get set up and feeling comfortable with the new technology.
Everyone loves a special delivery! You could surprise Mom with a gift she’ll love by ordering it online and selecting Mother’s Day as the delivery date. It could be flowers, baked goods, or a subscription box. You could even drop off something yourself, like a curated parcel filled with her favourite items, which would be sure to make her feel special and appreciated this Mother’s Day. Grandchildren can contribute too; sometimes, putting the parcel together is half the fun!
Amid the pandemic, between travel restrictions and lockdown orders, it can be difficult to plan in advance. However, in time, as more Canadians get vaccinated, life as we know it will start returning to normal. Give Mom something to look forward to in the meantime by putting some money towards a future activity within reason, like a gift certificate for her favourite spa, hair salon or restaurant. To be safe, check to see if there’s an expiry date on your purchase.
