Mother’s Day

12th March 2021

With limited things to do in lockdown, there’s a sense of doom surrounding Mother’s Day 2021. However, even if we’re unable to see them in person – there are plenty of other ways to make our mums feel extra-special!

This week, we’re sharing some lockdown Mother’s Day inspiration; activities that you can do from the safety of your home that will brighten your mum’s Sunday. 

A breakfast delivery

Breakfast in bed has always been the ultimate way to make your mum feel pampered on her special day. Just because you can’t bring her warm pancakes, hot bacon and a cup of strong coffee on a tray – doesn’t mean the concept is completely out of the window this year. 

Go one step further and surprise your mum with a mix and match hamper from Oliver Greens! With a wide selection of cheese, biscuits, drinks and chutney to choose from – this luxury package is presented in a beautiful wicker basket and can be tailored to every occasion, including Mother’s Day. 

Add a dash of colour and fragrance to this gorgeous parcel with one of Oliver Greens’ unique, locally made soap flowers.  With a variety of vibrant designs available, these are perfect for display purposes whilst adding a wonderful aroma to the room.

Zoom takeaway lunch

While a traditional afternoon tea may be out of the question this Mother’s Day – you can still have lunch together virtually! Why not tuck into some vegan cakes, pastries and scones from The Zero Waste Company whilst chatting with your mum over Zoom?

If you fancy experiencing the taste of India, the Kirthon offers a brilliant takeaway service. Order matching meals for yourself and your mum, then enjoy a FaceTime catch-up! 

Make a photo book

As lovely as it is to look at pictures on your phone or computer – nothing beats the tactility of a traditional photo album. Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to have your favourite images of you and your mum printed. 

The Pantiles Cameras offers a high quality photo printing service. The store can instantly print from most smartphones, memory cards, USB or other storage devices. From basic cropping and enlargements – to red-eye removal, sepia filters and the addition of titles; their team of editing wizards can enhance your images at the mere tap of a button.

Make a film

Do you have an abundance of videos, too? Why not flex your creative muscles and try your hand at making a Mother’s Day video? Free apps like iMovie or DaVinci Resolve will enable you to create something extra-special using those adorable captured moments with mum! 

Whether you’ve created a hilarious clip – or a real tear-jerker; send it via WhatsApp or email. Your mum is sure to love it! 

The Pantiles

Despite the situation we find ourselves in, we hope everyone manages to have a wonderful Mother’s Day. Just remember; we might be in lockdown, but there are still plenty of ways to show your appreciation for such a special person in your life.
