Sunday, May 9th is Mother’s Day in the United States. This will be the second Mother’s Day celebration since the explosion of the Covid-10 pandemic. A lot of us didn’t get a chance to celebrate Mother’s Day last year due to Covid restrictions. Over the course of the 12 months, many of those restrictions have been lifted but if you’re not quite comfortable traveling just yet, there are still a few options at your disposal.
Here are 8 creative ways to celebrate Mother’s Day
1.Take the Mom in your life on a picnic.
Here’s an interesting idea: a virtual picnic. Instacart is a popular grocery store delivery application. You can order groceries for the mom in your life and you two can enjoy a virtual picnic in the comfort of each of your own backyards.
2. Virtually travel to a garden or a museum.
You can arrange virtual tours to museums or watch a botanical garden online. Virtual tours are fairly inexpensive and it is also great to enjoy cultural events while being safe.
3. Make a video
With gadgets such as phones and tablets having very high-powered cameras, a video for the mom in your life may be the way to go. A simple “Happy Mother’s Day” message will do the trick. How about curating a playlist of her favorite songs? You could add some of her all-time favorite bands with a little mix of songs that you both have enjoyed in the past together. You can also make a special piece of artwork for her. Apps like Pinterest can come in handy and really help come up with a really cool gift for her.
4. Movie Night
Another great idea is spending the day watching a movie or a marathon of your favorite television show if you are nearby.

Giving your Mom a long phone call is always an excellent idea. With many phones having a video chat feature, your Mom seeing your face on Mother’s Day will be the perfect treat. For extra credit, if you want to do a virtual talent show, saying some “Mom Jokes” or singing to your Mom will be amazing.
6. Arrange a lunch or virtual brunch date.
With delivery apps such as Uber Eats, DoorDash, and plenty more, you can have her favorite dish delivered to her for Mother’s Day. If you’re not in the same city, you can order your phone at the same time and enjoy a virtual Mother’s Day dinner that will make her happy.
