This year Mother’s Day is likely going to be like no Mother’s Day you’ve ever experienced before. Unless you currently live with your mom, and even if you do, your options for how to spoil her this year may be limited. Social distancing guidelines and quarantine closures mean no going out for Sunday brunch at your favourite local spot, no getting the whole family together under one roof for dinner, and in some cases, you may not be able to see her in person at all.
The good thing is, spoiling mom from afar to let her know how much she means to you is still possible! Here are some suggestions for how you can help your mom feel pampered and appreciated this Mother’s Day:
Face mask. This seems like an obvious place to start when thinking of a spa day. A nice moisturizing facial is a quintessential spa treatment and an easy at-home option for mom. Head to your local drugstore to pick one up, or if you’re feeling adventurous you can try one of these DIY options.
DIY mani-pedi. If you live with your mom and you’re feeling generous you can go all out with a full service mani-pedi. If you don’t live with mom, or maybe just don’t want to get that close to her feet, you could always provide the supplies for her to do it herself. A new pumice stone, some cuticle oil and new nail polish should do the trick.
