Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away and since this year will look a little different than usual, here’s what you can do to celebrate your mom while still staying safe at home.
Good Housekeeping Style Director Lori Bergamotto rounded up some of the perfect ways to show your mom that you appreciate her.
Check out her list below:
While you can’t visit the flower shop right now, the safest way to still get beautiful flowers to mom is to rely on online delivery. With UrbanStems, flower delivery is quick and easy and they have beautifully designed arrangements. For comparable prices to other online florists, you’re getting the built in bonus of beautiful floral design. And they don’t just offer flowers, you can also order beautiful orchids or small potted plants too.
The last day to order for Mother’s Day is Friday, May 8 by 2 p.m. Eastern, so don’t miss out!
2. Photos: Digital Frame, Photo Calendar
Since many people won’t be able to be home with their moms this year, one way to make everyone feel connected is with a digital photo frame. At Bed, Bath and Beyond, they have a great deal on a Brookstone model right now and it’s on sale.
Bergamotto says that digital photo frames are great because anyone can upload their photos to it from anywhere and it’s a great gift option if you have siblings since everyone can upload photos to it, which your mom will love.
The deadline for ordering one of these in time for Mother’s Day is this Thursday April 30.
Give the photo gift that lasts all year long with this artfully-designed photo calendar and brass easel from Artifact Uprising for $49.
3. Preserve Memories With Storytelling Subscription Service
Bergamotto says one way to preserve memories is through StoryWorth, an online subscription service that will allow your mom to record family stories and print them in beautiful keepsake books.
Each week, a question or prompt will be emailed to her about her life and after a year, the stories she has been sharing in response to those emails are bound into a book for her to keep forever.
Sign up by Mother’s Day, May 10.
4. Breakfast in Bed
While breakfast in bed is a family-favorite way to greet your mom the morning of Mother’s Day, Bergamotto suggests surprising her instead with a meal ordered through GoldBelly, which will let you order from some of the best restaurants all over the country. They also offer “city subscription” boxes -- and all of those proceeds go to supporting workers on the front line right now.
Place your nationwide order by May 7 to have it delivered by Mother’s Day.
