Even though there are parts of life that are somewhat back to normal, your typical Mother's Day celebration—Mother's Day breakfast or brunch, a spa day, or that long-awaited in-person visit—still may not be a viable option this year.
So what's a doting, long-distance—or socially distanced—daughter or son to do to honor the most important woman in their life?
If you want to go beyond a simple and expected Mother's Day card or Mother's Day gift, there are still tons of creative ways you can connect with Mom or Grandma at home. A phone call is sure to brighten her day; a video call is even better.
Watch her cheeks turn her signature shade of "flushed" as you and your siblings toast her with "mom"-osas during a virtual happy hour. If she loves to garden, embark on the world's best garden tours from your sofas.
Nowadays, you can take a virtual painting class, and you'll both come away with a keepsake that will remind you of each other.
Even the little ones—from toddlers and preschoolers to elementary aged kids—can get in on the action with their own masterpieces!
Whatever you choose to do, take heart that your mom will find joy in feeling appreciated and loved.
Browse this list of things to do with Mom on Mother's Day to make her special day the best, most memorable it can be.
Breakfast in Bed
Serve your mom breakfast in bed! You can cook her favorite items like scrambled eggs or vanilla flavored pancakes and serve with fresh fruit juice.
Also, keep a sweet little love note in the food tray to tell your mom how much you love her.
Spend Time with Her
Spend an entire day with your mom doing things that you always wanted to do with her but never actually got a chance. A movie marathon, watching old family photos or baking are some of the amazing ideas to spend some leisure time with your mom at home.
Day Off From Household Activities
Give your mom a day off from all the household chores and responsibilities. Cook for her, do the laundry or clean the house while your mom has some fun time with her friends.
Take Her for Shopping
Take your mom for shopping and meanwhile, you can catch up on all gossips you wanted to share with each other for a long time.
Plan a Movie Date
Take your mom on a movie date followed by a dinner at her favorite restaurant. Surprise her by ordering all her favorite cuisines and desserts. And of course, her favorite wine as well!
Book a Spa Session
Book a spa session for two at your nearby salon. Spend some relaxing time with your mom on Mother’s Day while getting relaxing massages, pedicure, and manicure.
Enroll Her for a Hobby Class
If your mom loves dancing or baking and wants to learn more about them, then you can enroll her for professional dancing and baking classes at a reputed institution. It will also make an excellent Mother’s Day gift that your mom will surely love.
Help Her Set Up a Garden
If your mom loves gardening, then you can help her set up a small garden in the house or floral garden in the balcony of your house. It will also make a perfect spot where she can read her favorite books while sipping the hot cup of coffee.
Arrange a photo shoot
How about you get a photo shoot done with your mom on Mother’s Day? The best way to tell your story through pictures.
Pursue Her Hobby for a Day

Gift Her a Cute Necklace
Buy your mom a cute necklace with a heart-shaped pendant with a picture of you two in it. It will always stay close to her heart and keep reminding her of you.
Try Something Adventurous
Does your mom love adventure activities? Then get outside and enjoy the fresh air amidst the beauty of nature while hiking with your mom.
Or you two can enjoy other adventure sports as well like paragliding, bungee jumping or river rafting.
Go On A Road Trip
Go on a road trip with your mum. It would be a great way to let your mom get away from the distractions of daily mundane life. Also, during the road trip, you two will get plenty of time to bond and have heart-to-heart conversations.
If your mom enjoys a glass of her favorite wine every night, then you can schedule a wine tasting tour for you two to the nearest vineyard. Tasting the best wine with your mom will be a very unique experience worth remembering.
Visit an Exhibition or Art Gallery
If your mom takes an interest in art, then you can take her to an exhibition or art gallery nearby that she always wanted to explore. Being an art-lover, your mom will totally appreciate the gesture.
