During quarantine, we have more time to focus on people we loved, and also have more time to be creative in showing our love to them. So, this Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity for us to focus on Mom and to honor her.
Quarantine means we can't celebrate Mother’s Day in the traditional ways, such as inviting Mom to enjoy a delicious dinner in her favorite restaurant or traveling with her. But surely we can always find some creative ideas to make Mom smile as long as we want to do.
Here are some creative Mother's Day ideas in all 12 areas:
1. CHOOSE A GIFT MOM REALLY WANTS
Let's forget luxury and money, try to think about what your mother likes, garden, fashion, shopping, food, or travel? Give what she wants is a good idea. If you are lucky enough to own a Mom loving camping, tent, sleeping bag, mattress, backpack, chair (all of these you can find in KingCamp online store) are good gift ideas. They are not only a gift but an invitation to your Mom - Let’s go camping together.
2. A FRESH BOUQUET OF FLOWERS
A classic Mother's day gift idea: brighten mom’s day with a fresh bouquet of flowers. The most popular Mother’s Day flowers are roses, lilies, orchids, and tulips. You can order Mom’s favorite flowers and give her a bright and sweet mother’s day.
3. PERSONALIZED MOTHER'S DAY CARDS
DIY a personalized Mother's Day Cards-this is a popular & creative Mother's day gift idea especially for the family having kids. Kids can write or draw their love for mom, and paste a family photo on it.
4. AN INDOOR PICNIC
Your family can sit on the ground and spreading out a tablecloth on the living room floor and have a family picnic with mom’s favorite foods. If you have a fireplace, it's great, by all means, build a fire (If the weather is not hot).
5. MAKE BREAKFAST FOR MOM
Make breakfast with mom's favorite food, such as fluffy pancake tossed in some chocolate chips or mom’s favorite fruit for a real treat. Then let your Mom enjoy breakfast in bed! It's a tried-and-true classic Mother's idea!
6. TAKE CARE OF HOUSEWORK
Mothers work so hard all year round with making sure homes are perfectly clean. So at least on Mother's Day, we can take care of housework to let mom can sit back and relax in their pajamas.
7. A GAME NIGHT
Let mom pick the game! Let mother play as much as she did when she was a child.
8. OFFER MOM SOME TIME ALONE
Calculate how many times you shout 'mom' one day, and ask her how many small things, then you will understand the meaning of this idea. Offer mom some time alone to soak in a tub, read a book, or take a nap (or all three!).
9. HOST A BACKYARD TEA PARTY
It's a classic and timeless Mother's Day celebration idea, and could easily be replicated in your backyard. With KingCamp bamboo folding table, some comfortable camping chair, and of course, choose tea and pair each one with a different dessert or snack...these are enough for your Mom and other family members to spend a cozy time.
