Why stress out about shipping delays or restaurant closures when you don’t have to? Surprise the mother-figure in your life with something you or your family create. Make Mother’s Day 2020 one to remember with our list of ways to celebrate, all at a safe social distance!
Before we begin, we want to recognize that not everyone can be with their mother on Mother’s Day. Being without your mom is tough – whether it is by choice or not. Millions of people are struggling with feelings of isolation or loss. In recognition that this isn’t a day of celebration for everyone, we have provided a wide range of recommendations we hope you enjoy. Be sure to take care of yourself and reach out to your friends or family members if you need some extra support this year.
Join the bandwagon! The viral family photo recreation challenge has taken over the internet. Here’s how you can participate. Step 1: Grab a photo from the family album. Step 2: Recreate the moment. Step 3: Watch your mother smile. Check out this Tik Tok compilation for ideas.
Set up a spa station at home or put together a spa package. There are plenty of ingredients that are sitting in your pantry that you can use.

Mom over 65? Senior citizens must self-quarantine more than any other group. But isolation doesn’t mean you can’t visit! Surprise your mother with a window party, like this man did for his wife. We recommend bringing games to play like tic tac toe.
Take virtual tours together! The National Parks Foundation is offering free online tours. You may not be able to go out for a hike at Yellowstone Park this year, but you can still take a visual journey through the wilderness. For a more global experience, take a virtual trip to these 5 UNESCO Heritage sites online.

Becoming a mom for the first time is thrilling enough by itself. Becoming a new mom during a global pandemic must be overwhelming. Be sure to check in with your new mommy friends. You can even put together a nice care package, send some comfy clothes, or purchase online subscriptions to things they would enjoy. If you would like to help other mothers in need, consider donating your time or money to one of these organizations.
Mother’s Day without your mother-figure is difficult. It’s natural to miss having your mother close by. You can still honor her by doing things that would make her happy.
