Mother’s Day, coming up this Sunday, looks a little different this year for many people while we are social distancing, keeping us from the normal festive activities such as going out to brunch with the family to celebrate. But there are still plenty of ways to make this year’s Mother’s Day special in the comfort of your own home. It’s time to put those quarantine activity ideas to the test. From serving up the ultimate breakfast in bed to transforming your home into a luxurious spa atmosphere for a self-care day, here are some ways to show your mom how much you love and appreciate her at home.

Breakfast in Bed

This one is a Mother’s Day classic, and let’s be real—who doesn’t love waking up to a gourmet breakfast in bed? It’s truly a dream. Let your mom sleep and surprise her with the tastiest “most important meal of the day.”

Inhale and Exhale

Kick off the morning on this special day with a sunrise yoga and meditation session in the backyard, followed by sipping ice-cold water infused with fresh fruits to nourish your body!

Game On

Pair your brunchtime mimosas or post-dinner cocktails with some games to gather the family together. Whether it’s card games, board games, or puzzles, your mother is sure to have butterflies in her heart seeing the entire family gathering together to celebrate and have fun.

Time for a Little R&R

Consider unwinding with a do-it-yourself at-home spa day. Start the spa treatment with a detoxifying salt bath, followed by face masks and manicures to pamper Mom on her special day.

Taste Test

It’s time to raise a glass and toast to Mom with an at-home wine tasting. Whether you can make it to the grocery store to purchase an array of wines or you order an online wine subscription, you can still channel your inner sommelier at home. Make it fun and adventurous by setting up a different wine tasting in each room of the house as a new venue and dress up as if you were sipping vino in Sonoma!

Dine-In or Takeout?

Put those quarantine recipes to the test and give mom a break from the kitchen, or get takeout from her favorite local restaurant. To make it even more heartfelt for mom, transform the dining room with a decorative tablescape and turn on some classical music to embody eating out.

Pajamas, but Make It High Fashion

The chances are that during quarantine, you’ve probably watched your fair share of movies and TV shows that have been building up on your “must-watch” list. This time, let Mom pick the movie! It’s time to pop the popcorn, pour a glass of wine, throw on your fanciest red-carpet-ready PJs, and treat mom to the ultimate at-home movie experience.
