Mother's Day in the time of Pandemic

Times have changed.

These three words could not be more apt as it is now in this time of the pandemic.


It's definitely going to be a different kind of celebration for a lot of families this year since we're all still required to stay home due to COVID-19. A lot of people have been wondering, "what can I do for my Mom if I don't have money or if we can't go out and celebrate?"

Here are a few suggestions that you can do even without preparation.

Coffee / Breakfast in Bed


You can make your Mom's favorite drink or cook her favorite breakfast. If it's too complicated, just cook her something or make her something. She will appreciate the effort.

Gift of Relaxation


If your Mom is the one who does everything at home, taking over her daily chores will mean a lot. Let her sit, relax, and do nothing. If you have essential oils, diffuse so that she can soak it in and feel more calm. Moms worry a lot and a few moments of relaxation matters. You can order some at Legande.

Gift of Happiness


In this sweltering heat, a cup or tub of ice cream can spell a big difference. Let Ice Cream House help you with that. They offer so many flavors, one better than the last that you won't know what to get. You might just get it all.

Gift of Health


You can cook healthy dishes that will help boost their immune system or if you don't know how to cook, just order online these veggies that they can cook for the family. Sometimes, a few savings here and there can matter a lot to Moms.

Gift of Comfort

Moms walk a lot. They run errands, do the groceries, and some of them are the "tributes" in these times of pandemic. Make sure that they are wearing something comfy while they go around taking care of all the essentials for the family. You can order these Bandolino shoes via Zalora.

However, the most important gift that you can give your Mom this Mother's Day is actually your love, respect, and gratitude. Moms are not perfect but they do what they think is best and they will love you no matter what.

Say thank you.
Say I love you.
Say you appreciate her.

To my Mom, no matter what, I will always be thankful to God that you are my Mommy.

I love you Mommy. Thank you for teaching me to be strong, resilient, and to be kind. Thank you for helping me raise B.  Happy Mother's Day!
