The Best Gift for your Mother during Quarantine

Looking at the present scenario, many of us are at home with family. Let’s face it its quarantine time. It’s better to forget the mother’s day celebration ideas like movie date, dinner date, spa dates or shopping dates with your Mom. This year has come out with unique circumstances but that does not mean the idea of celebrating the moments can be left, in fact, it is more meaningful than ever.

And if you are still hunting to look for the ideas to celebrate the Mother’s Day in a perfect way, look no further. All the ideas mentioned are approved by Moms 🙂

 

  1. A virtual party

Video call

Sign in to Zoom, Google Meet, Duo or any virtual app. Ask all your mother’s friends to be part of the virtual party. She is definitely going to love when the celebration happens with friends. You can plan some fun games like Antakshari, a recipe that you recently learned, or can recite a heartfelt poem to her.

 

  1. A Mother’s Day Slideshow

We know it’s going to be a no travel year so, why not just live with the memories you have collected while travelling with your Mom. Take out an album or a hard disk to check out all those fun travel moments. You can prepare a slideshow of pictures and you’ll get to refresh your childhood memories. The ones who are not with their mother can send it online and then have a video call.

 

  1. Watch a Mother Daughter Movie

Play her favourite movie or shows based on mother-daughter bonds like Gilmore Girls, Jane the Virgin or anything that interests her. Call the entire family and just spend dedicated three hours watching a movie with a bucket of popcorn or Nachos (get it from the market) and a cold drink.

 

  1. Treat her with a fancy meal

Why not prepare something via virtual cooking class to prepare an exotic meal for her. Take your family together in this. Make a video what all happened in her absence from the kitchen during this trial period. She would definitely enjoy watching it and of course, tasting the final outcome.

 

  1. Serve Her Breakfast in Bed

She is the one who served most of the family members breakfast in the bed but do you remember when the last time she got such pampering. Mother’s Day is the perfect day when you can not treat her for a fancy meal at a hotel or restaurant but still make her happy more than ever. It’s simple than you think- a cup of tea/coffee, some nuts and fruits and pancakes or anything that you feel she prefers in breakfast and if you can make it. If you aren’t there you can order from her favourite local spot and have it delivered.

 

The bottom line is whatever you choose to do spend some time with her and give her a day off if possible. After all, time is the best and most comforting gift of all.

Jaipur Beat wishes all the super moms a Happy Mother’s Day!

8 Promises You Make To Your Mothers But Never Keep

As you all know, it’s mother’s day tomorrow. While you are all still wondering what to gift your lovely mother, just go through the things that you probably plan to gift her everyday, but fail 😉

1. To Keep Your Room & Cupboard Clean

A promise that you make to her every time she is mad at you and scolding you and even saying things like ‘Keep your cupboard closed or rats will eat them up’.

2. To put the phone away while eating

Every time she shows you an evil eye when you are desperately texting while having your meal, you put your phone away just to make her happy. And pick it up once she is out of sight 😉

3. To call them everyday (If you are living away from the house)

“Yes mom, I will obviously call you every day now”

4. To help them in the kitchen

Every single time, you watch her continuously working in the kitchen, you promise yourself that you will now be helping her cook, clean and do every little thing in the kitchen that she needs you for. After a couple of days, you get too lazy and basically fail :p

5. To value money and spend wisely

Whenever you come home with a dozen of shopping bags filled with things which you don’t need or you end up now knowing where you spent your last month’s budget, your mom is the one who tells you that money doesn’t grow on trees. You decide to save money and be more careful, and next day find yourself clubbing at an expensive club or drooling on the online shopping offers :p

6. To avoid hogging junk food all the time

Need we say more ?

7. To come back home on time

Be it from work or late night parties, your mom’s the one who watched the clock and waits till you get back home.

8. To not skip meals

No matter what crisis is going on in the world, your mom’s biggest crisis and worry will always be your diet. Even if you’re going for the most important interview of your life, your mom’s first question after it might be ‘Kuch khaya, or were you hungry the entire day?’

Despite not being able to keep your promises, your mom knows that you still love her and she loves you selflessly and almost without expecting anything in return. So how about gifting her these little precious moments this Mother’s Day ? 🙂
