Celebrating special days while in quarantine can be difficult and anticlimactic. Bring back the human touch this Mother’s Day with a few ideas to celebrate, while staying safe!
Have brunch at home

Staying with extended family? Make primping a family affair! Even if you’re not going anywhere, it can be a nice change of pace to dress up while at home!
Do a drive-by celebration

Depending on where you live, go one step further than just driving past their home. Have a brief meeting–with at least 2 meters and a window between you!
