If you are quarantining with you mother:

If you are lucky enough to be with your mother during this period of social distancing and get to celebrate in person, these are some suggestions of special things you can do!

  • Make a coupon book of household chores to give your mom. During quarantine the house is kind of always a mess. (At least mine is!) From using our kitchen table for all meals, zoom conferences, zoom school, arts and crafts, puzzles and games- our kitchen has a taken a serious beating! And, many times it is mom cleaning it up! Why not create a great coupon book of chores that she can pass off to you on certain days she doesn’t want to swiffer the kitchen floor or do the laundry.


  • Buy flowers! If you want to invest in flowers that will last an entire year- check out Venus et Fleur eternity roses! You can also order a beautiful bouquet from bouqs.com. The Bouqs Co. offers a great selection no matter your mother’s personal style with categories like Classic Beauty, The Modern Muse, Boho Chic, and the Modern Muse. If you are looking for a very modern, deluxe bouquet, check out Ovando! While definitely on the pricey side, they offer exquisite bouquets arranged in novel ways with very cool stem designs!


  • If you are going to be preparing a Mother’s Day special lunch or dinner, be sure to get your ingredients ahead of time as grocery stores are selling out quickly and you may not be able to find that special something she loves easily!


  • Order a cake from Goldbelly! Goldbelly is a website that allows you to order and ship cakes (and all other food items) from well known bakeries (like Lady M in NYC, Magnolia in NYC, Cake Boss’s NJ Bakery) and shops all over the USA to your front door step! Order ahead  of time as delivery slots sell out quickly.

Virtual Mother’s Day

While many of us will be spending Mother’s Day virtually, you can still arrange an hour of fun activities to play with your families via zoom or FaceTime! I recently played an online version of dictionary with my parents!
