Mothers have always been there for us, taking care of us when we are sick, when our hearts are broken and whenever we need someone to lean on. Mothers should be appreciated every day! Not just on Mother's Day, but this day makes appreciating them extra special. It may be difficult for some of us to figure out how to celebrate Mothers Day during quarantine, which is why we are giving you a few ideas!
A Quarantine Brunch
All those years your mother fed you well here’s an opportunity to return the favor! Plan a meal you know mom is going to love. Or hey! Support mom's favorite local restaurant and get brunch to go. That way, you're not cooking, and you're supporting small businesses (like ourselves)!
DIY Spa Kit
Being home 24/7 means constant cleaning. We are all experiencing the never-ending chores right now. Make a DIY Spa Kit and ensure mom takes some time for herself to relax and unwind she deserves it.
