How to Celebrate Mother's Day Even If You're Quarantined
Mother's Day is going to be looking a little different this year. Between social distancing measures and quarantine shutdowns, many of our most time honored Mother's Day traditions, like a decadent brunch and exchanging gifts, are going to be off-limits this year. Indeed, many of us may not even be able to be with our mother's this year as we all stay home to try and keep our loved ones safe. But the fact that we have to think outside the box doesn't mean that mom should have to do with a lesser celebration in 2020. In fact, with a little creativity and a smidgen of effort, we think that this Mother's Day in quarantine could be one of the most special ever. How do you pull it off? Check our tips below for making the most of your mother's big day!

Learn Something New Together
One fun way to make memories on Mother's Day is to pick up a new skill together through an online class. Turn to YouTube for quick tutorials on everything from drawing and painting, to knitting and dance, test out a language learning app like Duolingo to pick up phrases for your next trip, or try a class from MasterClass's selection of expert lessons like tennis tips from Serena Williams, gardening know-how from Ron Finley, or photography walkthroughs with Annie Leibovitz.

Watch a Movie
Pop some popcorn and curl up with a good flick (or three). Whether you're watching for the first time or revisiting old favorites, it's a great way to spend some quality time—and isn't that really what Mother's Day is all about.
