Throw Her a Suprise Yard Party
While social distancing regulations discourage parties or large gatherings of people, there are unique ways to celebrate the special people in your life from afar.
This Mother’s Day, think outside the box and decorate the windows in your home with messages of love.
If you have younger children, preparing the signs and decorations is another activity you can do while indoors. Have the kids decorate and write their favourite things down about their mom. Once she’s gone to sleep, decorate the windows with your artwork.
When she wakes up, host a home-made brunch and yard party. When she sees the heartfelt messages across the windows of your home, she’s sure to feel all the love she deserves!
Book Her an Appointment at the Home Spa
With hair, nail and many of her favourite beauty salons closed, her need to feel pampered has never been higher.
While booking an appointment isn’t possible right now, that doesn’t mean you can’t treat her to a little pampering: quarantine style!
Create a Menu Board with different pampering options she can choose for her Mother’s Day appointment.
You can include everything from a foot soak-and-rub to a shoulder-and-neck massage. Or, run her a bath fully outfitted with Epsom salts, bubbles, and candles.
Any good spa also offers a variety of fresh snacks and cocktails to enjoy. Pour her a morning mimosa while her feet soak.
Follow her bath up with an assortment of fruits, nuts, and chocolate (of course). Be sure to include a robe and some slippers to guarantee the full-spa effect.
Order a Mother’s Celebration Box
Want to shower your mom with love and feel good about supporting local Edmonton artisans and businesses? Order her a Mother’s Celebration Box from The Makers Keep, a marketplace that highlights local vendors and handmade products.
Filled with incredible local goodies, the Mother’s Celebration Box promises to make Mother’s Day gift-giving simple AND affordable. Order online and have it delivered.
She’ll love the beautiful and uniquely crafted items and you’ll love the feeling you get supporting locally-owned businesses.
Host a Special Parade
You might have seen a few social distancing birthday parades across your Facebook this past month. Why not adopt the idea for Mother’s Day?
It’s a great way to get the family together safely and shower the special ladies in your life with the attention they deserve.
If your family lives close together, organize a route outside her house. Select a meet-up spot and have the vehicles line-up at an agreed-upon time.
Hang signs from the window showering her with love. Add a few balloons in the mix and a whole lot of honks and you’re sure to make her smile!
Order in Dinner From Her Favourite Local Spot
While most restaurants have closed their doors in order to stop the spread of Coronavirus and adhere to safe social distancing guidelines, many continue to offer your favourite meals via delivery.
The Edmonton Journal wrote a comprehensive list of local Edmonton restaurants currently offering delivery, curbside pick-up or other unique ways to bring their tasty creations to you.
Her favourite spot isn’t on the list? Check their Instagram to see what adjustments they’ve made to serve you!
