Mother’s Day…from a Distance

With Mother’s Day looking a little different this year, we are finding creative ways to continue the celebration honoring the strong moms out there .

We can still make the day special and let our mothers know how much they mean to us. Here are a few safe, and kind gestures to ensure mom still feels the love while sheltering in place:

Schedule a virtual brunch.

Even if you cannot see each other in person, you could coordinate the delivery of her favorite brunch foods and set up a virtual call for you two to enjoy the meal together. Some local caters are offering brunch menus like Cafe Primavera.

Write her a message in chalk.

I know my mom would love to wake up to artwork and messages created by her children and grandchildren. Why not decorate the entire driveway if you have the time and supplies? She deserves it!

Deliver a porch package.

This year, in light of circumstances, we’ve decided to offer porch packages with safe contact-free delivery for Mother’s Day. There are three options to choose from starting at $40, allowing mom’s to receive a special gift, safely at their doorstep. Contact Caitlin at caitlin@amazae.com to discuss options and ordering.

Meet for a tailgate picnic.

Whether you park in the driveway, or meet at a park, you can safely keep your distance while still enjoying a meal and conversation in each other’s company.

Coordinate a drive-by parade.

Round up your mom’s children (and grandchildren) to drive by on Mother’s Day decorating the cars with loving messages. Wave, sing, play her favorite tunes, and toss flowers her way as you pass.

Purchase a gift card to her favorite restaurant.

Not only are you supporting a business she loves, but you two can have something to look forward to when you can get together again. Win-win!

Send her flowers.

We know this may seem a little traditional, or dare we say obvious, but we still think she’d greatly appreciate the delivery. Especially if you order from someone like, Apis Floral!

Take care of dinner.

Give her a relaxing evening with a special meal. You can cook her favorite homemade feast and drop it off or order take out from her favorite restaurant. Check out drink and meal kits from Silicon Valley Capital Club!

Let us know how you are celebrating Mother’s Day this year. We know she deserves it!
