Mother's Day 2020 | Quarantine-Friendly Celebration!

April 28, 2020

Alright, dads... this year is a little different. Teachers won't be sending our littles home with adorable, handmade Mother's Day presents... so it's up to us! And we've got 12 days to make this day as amazing as the moms in our life. 

Luckily, we've compiled a bit of a cheat sheet with quarantine-friendly Mother's Day ideas and activities that families at home or far away can enjoy! Take a look and let us know your favorite in the comments below!


At-Home Spa Day!

Chances are, the mom in your life is missing being able to go out for a pamper now and then. Luckily, it's easy to create a spa day at home! You can gather mani materials mom has at home and even create hair and face masks with items you have around the house.

Virtual Classes

Chances are even higher that mom is wanting a change in routine during quarantine. Virtual classes are the perfect way to change things up and have fun! Whether it's an online yoga class, painting party, cooking class, or a class tailored to her favorite hobby, mom will be sure to appreciate a unique and thoughtful activity.

Shelter-In-Place Wine Tasting

An at-home wine tasting day is easier than you think and a great way to celebrate a wine-loving mom! Gather up different varietals of wine (many local wineries continue to offer pick-up or delivery options!) and a cheese or fruit board to enjoy while sipping. Delicious, fun, and relaxing. 

If you'd like the varietals and snacks picked out for you, there are many companies that will do the tough decision making such as vinebox for tastings and stepladder creamery for premade snack boards!

Order In and Share Over Facetime

Kids don't live at home? That's no problem for technology nowadays... There are countless ways to connect online, but we firmly believe that bonding over food is the most effective (and delicious) option. 

Order from her favorite restaurant and make it a surprise with family on Face Time! Bonus points if you all order from the same or similar restaurants and enjoy the meal together 🍽


DIY Cards + Mother's Day Books

Quarantine or not, handmade is always adorable. While kids may not be making cards at school right now, you can still have a fun craft day at home! Either have your little have creative freedom on their cards or check out this free printable from Hello Wonderful that lets littles create their own Mother's Day book!

Curated Gifts by Mail

Many companies are continuing to deliver goods and services via mail during quarantine - which brings endless possibilities to shopping for mom this year! Consider sending items from local companies that mom loves or even shopping curated boxes like Small Packages.


We all know the old saying "it's the thought that counts" and during quarantine we believe this has never been more true. Whether it's a zoom video breakfast with mom, a virtual movie night together, or even a card in the mail sending your love from afar, taking the time to let mom know she is special is what's important!

We hope this list has helped you create a fun and festive mother's day in quarantine or sparked even more ideas for you! Let us know in the comments below what you have planned!
