Mother’s Day is one of the most important days in the calendar year. Families gather and enjoy feasts of food and most importantly spend time together. Unfortunately, this year will be a very different type of celebration.
While we are physically distant from each-other, we still can be emotionally connected through technology and gift giving.
We believe that all types of mums and female influences deserve to be celebrated, whether that be a mum-to-be, a new mum, a grandparent or carer. These women enrich our lives and help us navigate through life’s ups and downs.
Let’s take a look at how we can still make their day as special as ever.
1. Video Chat
Thank gosh for FaceTime, Houseparty and Zoom, right! These platforms have skyrocketed in popularity due to COVID-19 and are connecting family, friends and colleagues more than ever before. Organising a video chat session with your mum or a grandparent is a great way to reach out and let them know you are thinking of them. You could share a meal or a coffee via video perhaps?
2. The joy of gift giving
Although we can’t be physically present, we can still keep sending presents! That’s the beauty of online shopping. The convenience of sending a gift directly to your mum, a grandparent or even a new mum gives them something special to open that will also brighten their day. Many people are feeling isolated from their loved ones which is why sending a personalised gift is more important than ever before.
We recommend browsing our range of Mother’s Day gifts. Not only are there gifts of all types of women, but there are gifts for all budgets and ages.
3. Family isolation day
By now, your family may be going stir crazy but that doesn’t mean you still can’t have a little fun on Mother’s Day! Plan a family friendly day for mum by organising breakfast in bed for her, having the housework taken care of for the day, arranging some family games, going for a walk together and finish off by watching a movie.
4. Send a Pocket Hug
The current crisis has left many without jobs, isolated and with feelings of uncertainty. We can’t visit the people we care about but we want to let them know we are thinking of them always and that they are not alone.
Sending a Pocket Hug is a small gesture but speaks volumes. They are available for $14.95 and will be guaranteed to put a smile on their face. Right now, it’s the little things that count and it’s important to keep connected to our loved ones.
5. Get creative
Kids, Dads – Listen up! More than ever we need something to make us laugh and forget about the troubles happening around the world for a moment. Why not jump on the trend bandwagon and a series of funny videos for mum? Have you heard to the Garbage Bin Viral sensation? Dress up in a costume or formal wear and take the bins out. Or grab your other parents and make a Tik Tok dance video and show off those moves.
If videos are not your things then you could bake mum her favourite cake or create her a beautiful artwork.
