The month of May is filled with so many sweet moments; flowers blooming, trees budding, warm breezes, and of course, a special day for mom!

And a pandemic is certainly not going to stop us from showing the most special lady in our lives some love. Mother’s Day has gone virtual and we’ve got five great ways to celebrate!

BOOK MOM IN FOR A VIRTUAL SPA DAY

While your favourite spa might be closed, that doesn't mean the pampering needs to stop! Treat mom to a virtual spa day and make sure you join in too.

Prepare a basket of indulgence! Here are some ideas:

  • A mini diffuser will transform her space into a spa-like haven. Lavender and peppermint are top picks for spa scents
  • Epsom salts provide a perfect yet simple foot soak which helps relax tight muscles
  • Nail polish of course! Everyone loves a new shade of pink, red or orange as we roll into spring
  • Body Balm is the perfect way to lock in moisture and keep mom feeling hydrated
  • A facial roller is a unique treat as its relaxing nature helps firm skin and decrease puffiness

Set a time for you and mom to both enjoy the at home spa! Call in over video chat and go through your selected spa plan together. You could even surprise her with your siblings calling in for some family fun. It will be a different experience but one to certainly remember!

MAKE MOM A PHOTO SLIDESHOW

What mom doesn't want to reminisce over family photos, special vacations, and favourite summer memories? These are fun ideas you can easily send to mom over email.

You can create a theme like “Growing Up” or “Summers at the Cottage”, and pair photos together with some relaxing music. There are lots of free tools online that will help you with your creation.

The best part is you can watch it online together. You’ll have mom wanting to run over and give you the biggest hug!

SEND A SPECIAL SCENT HER WAY

Out of the five senses, your scent has the strongest link to memory. The smell of a new perfume picked just by you for mom will have her remembering this special mothers day forever.

Pick something floral or fruity to get inspired for the summer ahead!

Make sure you video call in as mom opens her new fragrance.

DECORATE HER FRONT PORCH

Spring flowers, a new door wreath or even balloons, and a wrapped gift! Mom will be surprised to open her front door on Mother's Day to find out you have already been there.

Make your floral display look unique by filling a watering can with fresh daisies and tulips. Or if flowers are not her thing, think about a basket with a new candle or a cute necklace she can wear this summer.

Surprise drop offs always stir up some great excitement!

GIVE MOM A GREAT HAIR DAY

With so many hair salons closing down due to the pandemic, mom deserves an appointment she can count on!

Pick out a new styling tool, like a hot airbrush or an auto curler. Send it to mom and set a time where you can video call to show her how to master the new tool.

As the summer heat also approaches, think of something to help defrizz to keep her hair looking luscious all season. The “spring training” will certainly come in handy through the summer months.

This is another year of getting creative in order to let the people we love the most know how special they are. Mom will appreciate every ounce of effort and it will be a great memory for the years to come.
