In the midst of these unprecedented times, it's important to recognize and celebrate those closest to us. While an afternoon brunch at her favorite restaurant or day at the spa isn't currently possible, there are a host of properly social-distanced gift ideas that will make your mom feel as special as ever this Mother's Day.
Virtual Family Games
Now more than ever, mothers around the world deserve to have some fun. This Mother's Day, schedule a Zoom call or Facetime with the whole family to enjoy a light-hearted afternoon full of games, laughter, and memories that will certainly last forever. There are apps available that the whole family can download and play from the comfort of their home.
Houseparty is a wonderful app that can accommodate the whole family and offers an array of kid-friendly virtual games, including Heads Up!, Trivia, and charades. Looking for more of a challenge? For families with an affinity for trivia, Quizup is an app where you can play in real-time. Mom can choose from different categories, thousands of topics, and crown herself Queen of Trivia during this family-approved video chat game.
TV Shows Galore
Is your mother bored of watching the same shows? This Mother's Day gift her an Amazon Prime Stick, Roku, or subscription to Netflix as it truly is the gift that keeps on giving! There will never be another need to re-watch a series again, as Amazon and Netflix are releasing must-see shows early as an added bonus to subscribers.
Bring Her Favorite Restaurant Home
While an outside dining experience may not be possible, that doesn't mean you can't bring the restaurant straight to mom! Not only will you be supporting local restaurants, but getting delivery from some of the most acclaimed restaurants in the Palm Beaches is sure to make this Mother's Day special. Enjoy brunch from Cafe Chardonnay, J Alexander’s, Waterway Cafe, and Season’s 52. If interested in a more elegant dinner menu, III Forks and Capital Grill are also offering take-out and delivery.
Creating a photo book for your mother is the perfect way to celebrate her. Companies such as Collage, Apple, Walgreen's Photos, and Vistaprint all provide services to design and print a custom book filled with memories that will delight any mom. During these times, staying positive and grateful are essential - and what better way to do that than looking back at fond memories of the entire family!
Is your mother missing her gym or studio? Helping her create an at-home gym is a great Mother's Day present. Amazon, now shipping non-essential items, makes it easy to create your mother's new gym, offering top-of-the-line yoga mats, weight equipment, resistance bands, TRX equipment, and anything else imaginable. As an added bonus, online personal training sessions are available for purchase, such as classes from Barry's Bootcamp - one of the most renowned and popular gym classes in the country. To take the gym to the next level, Peloton offers live weekly classes and training programs when you purchase their stationary bike.
No matter what you think mom will enjoy most, there is no shortage of virtual acts of kindness available in the Palm Beaches in celebration of Mother’s Day.
