Indulging Your Mom On Mother’s Day, Lockdown Notwithstanding
The current COVID-19 pandemic has forced us indoors and has made us sacrifice a number of pleasurable activities and even forgo celebrations. Mother’s Day should not be one of these, though. If anything, this crisis has taught us to reassess our priorities and value our friends and family. And, no day better than the second Sunday of May to tell your mom how precious she is!
If you are missing the shopping spree, the fine dining and the indulgence that Select CITYWALK has to offer on Mother’s Day (10-May-2020), fret not.
We have some wonderful ideas to celebrate the Mother’s Day during this lockdown. Have a look:
Put together a care package
At a time when store shopping for one of the best labels at Select CITYWALK is off-limits, you may want to put together a wonderful care package with her favourite soaps, creams, and shampoos. Do not forget to add a cologne or a perfume that she is likely to enjoy. Look for night creams and foot rubs that can be delivered to your home to add to the basket.
Gift her an online class
Your mom must have given up a lot of her own dreams and ambitions to raise you and keep the family together. Keeping a balance between work, home, and parenting she’d not have found time to paint, do yoga, write, or catch up on her favourite medieval history. Gift her an online class on one of the many educational sites.
Breakfast in bed. And lunch. And dinner
Breakfast in bed is passé. This day is to indulge your mom in all her favourite dishes – for breakfast and lunch and dinner. Add in a gorgeous cake and if you can’t bake, watch one of the video tutorials to help you rustle up the dessert that you plan to share with this wonderful woman who raised you.
The one complaint that your mom always has is that you don’t spend enough time doing the activities that you enjoyed when you were younger. Gift her a beautiful garden, get her potted herbs, and flowering plants. Set up this green space in your backyard or in the balcony and see your mom’s eyes light up.
Catch her favourite movie
Unable to go to the cinemas or to a theatre show? Turn your home into a cozy cinema for the day, rustle up some snacks and munchies, popcorn, and cola and settle down to watching her favourite comedy or romantic number with your mom. This is indeed the ultimate indulgence.
One of the best gifts that you can give your mother is a scrapbook or a blanket full of childhood and family photos. Do not make it all about yourself, though. Contact your family, her friends and colleagues and get them to email you pictures that you can print off and put together a wonderful album to look through.
Bring home a pet
You know that you spend a lot of time away from home and your mom does get a tad bit lonely. Nothing can quite replace the love and affection of one’s child but an adoring pet is the next best thing of course. Before you adopt a fur baby, though, do check for possible allergies that your mother may have. Also, bring home a pet that has been properly vaccinated.
And let the magic begin!
