With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we thought you might be looking for ways to honour the incredible women in your life. For all of the amazing things she does for you all year round, Mother’s Day is an opportunity to show your appreciation for everything they do to make your lives that much better.
Here are a few ideas for ways to celebrate the special women in your life – near or far!
High tea at home
Start the day off with an assortment of baked goods, spreads, and sandwiches paired with a cup of her favourite coffee or tea. We’re “glass half full” kind of people here at Sage, so we recommend a glass half filled with champagne and topped with orange juice to make some delicious brunch mimosas.
Treat her to a spa day
Let mom unwind at her very own, private spa. A little quiet time with soft music, a favourite candle, and a warm bubble bath will help soak mom’s worries away.
There are so many amazing things you can do while still social distancing. Pick a family favourite or a recipe you’ve been dying to try out and cook it together online. Get crafty and host a virtual paint night with your loved ones. Find an online game to play with her family and friends. Whatever it is, it will be fun to make memories and share a few laughs along the way!
Love in bloom
Brighten her day with fresh blooms. Local floral shops can put together a gorgeous arrangement for the lucky ladies in your life. Not able to order fresh flowers, no problem! Get creative and make a colourful paper flower bouquet or have bulbs or seeds sent to her to be planted in her garden.
A thoughtful message
Send your mom a thoughtful message via card, call, text, email – whichever way you choose – and let her know how special she truly is. A little reminder of why she matters and what she means to you will make her day.
Sip, sip, hooray, it’s Mother’s Day!
Get together the ingredients for a delicious mocktail or cocktail. With so many recipes online, try out something new or explore ways to make a drink using the pantry ingredients you have on hand. Garnish your drinks with chopped fresh fruit or herbs to have it look as good as it tastes!
Set the table for a special dinner
Put together a spread of her favourite foods and pair it with her drink of choice. Whether you order in or put your culinary skills to the test, anyone loves having a good meal prepared for them!
While maintaining social distancing may be the reality for many mothers this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t show her some love from afar! Make some fun banners, get out those balloons and streamers and drive by mom’s house. This would also be an awesome addition to any doorstep drop-off.
Whether the mothers in your life live near or far, there are many ways you can remind them how much they mean to you this Mother’s Day. As we all navigate our current situation, it’s important to stay connected with those we love. So, send them a loving message, schedule that video call, drop off a care package filled with their favourite goodies, or have something delivered to their doorstep – big or small – it will mean the world to them.
We hope everyone has a beautiful Mother’s Day and wish all the incredible mommas in our lives a wonderful day filled with happiness and love!
