  1. Virtual Brunch Date: So, it’s a virtual brunch date. Your Mom’s favorite brunch items will be delivered to her house at a dedicated time tomorrow morning for a video call. She can eat her brunch while we virtually eat ours and chat over Zoom.
  2. Customized Video Message: If there’s one thing a mother never turns down, it’s a heartfelt video! Guaranteed to make her cry with joy: collect clips of family and friends sharing their favorite memories of Mom or words of encouragement as she embarks on her next chapter. Then find an excellent montage maker online, throw in a happy soundtrack, and you’ll be pretty close to an original.
  3. Virtual Memory Lane: If you live far away from Mom, make a shared online album or slideshow filled with your favorite photos, videos, and comments about time spent together. Share your thoughts and feel connected no matter the distance.
  4. Surprise Flower Delivery:

Flowers are a no-brainer. A couple of days before Mother’s Day, call the local florist and arrange for a flower delivery to Mom’s house with a really nice card attached that says, ‘I love you, Mom, thanks for everything!’ Flowers are not always frou-frou and feminine so that you can say this to your Mom, too.

  1. DIY Spa Day: Create a grooming kit for Mom! Pamper Mom from afar with a customized DIY spa day. Send her an assortment of her skincare favorites and other pampering items – you know she loves bathtime – then schedule a virtual spa sesh and debrief. Trust me, she’ll love the opportunity to relax and pamper with you, even from a distance.
  2. Cook Together, Virtually: While living far from your Mom, you can unite in the shared food experience by selecting a favorite recipe, sending the ingredients to her, and cooking together over a video call. You’ll enjoy delicious food while giggling together and virtually combining the joy of cooking with the lack of cleanup.
  3. Personalized Gift Hamper: Surprise Mum with a hamper personalized just for her this Mother’s Day. Put in all the things she loves, from books and chocolate to cozy socks, then marvel as she sees the thought you put in and knows how much she’s loved and valued.
  4. Personalized Mom’s Shirt or Mug
    Gift her a personalized shirt or mug with a meaningful message or design. Whether it’s a heartfelt quote, a family photo, or a custom illustration, she’ll cherish this unique gift that reminds her of your love every time she uses it.
  5. Surprise Subscription: Keep the surprises coming with a subscription service tailored to Mom’s interests. Whether it’s a book club, gourmet food delivery, or streaming service, each delivery will remind her of your love and thoughtfulness.
  6. Plan a Future Visit: Last but not least, why not plan a future visit to see Mom in person? Even if you can’t be together on Mother’s Day, having something to look forward to will put a smile on her face and warmth in her heart.
