20 Ideas for Celebrating Mother’s Day During COVID-19

Despite the fact that we’re all quarantined in our respective homes, Mother’s Day is not cancelled! After reading our last blog on Bahamian Moms on Life with Kids During COVID-19, don’t you agree that moms truly deserve to be celebrated this Mother’s Day?

Here are some suggestions on how you can celebrate your mom this Mother’s Day while also supporting Bahamian businesses.

Before we jump in though, please consider that you may have to be a bit creative regarding when you celebrate Mother’s Day due to lockdown restrictions. For example, either you celebrate on the Friday before or the Monday after so that your items are delivered fresh (particularly the flowers or food deliveries). You can also have the items delivered on Friday and surprise your mom on Sunday. It really all depends on your preference and the gift(s) you choose.

F.Y.I. Mothers Day is Sunday, May 10th.


1. Dinner

Why not give mom a break from the kitchen? This Mother’s Day, treat mom to her favourite dish.

Alternatively, you can order food from your favourite restaurants on the Kraven app. Restaurants such as  Twisted Lime and Wild Thyme are also open for takeaway orders.

15. Pamper Day

Show mom how special she is to you by spending the day pampering her and catering to her needs. You can give her a massage, manicure or pedicure. Hey, why not all three? Mom deserves to be waited on hand and foot so when she asks you to do something, don’t complain; instead, do it with a smile.

16. Virtual Party

Don’t live with your mom but still want to have a party? Zoom and House Party are two apps that can be used to host a virtual party for your mom. If you are looking for ideas for activities during the party, you and your family can download the  Kahoot! app and create a Trivia game to see which one of you know your mom the best.

17. Video Shoutout

Ever considered purchasing a ZNS advertisement? Why not let everyone know how much your mom means to you by paying for a Mother’s Day ad on ZNS? She’ll be smiling ear to ear for 24 hours straight!

Alternatively, you can create a homemade video for mom. Let all the kids record a special video for mom saying how much she means to you. You can put all of the individual videos together on iMovie, InShot, Quik, Splice or any other video editing app.

20. eGift Card

If you’ve gotten this far and you’re still not sure what your mom likes, why not consider getting her an electronic gift card (aka eGift card)? Amazon has e-gift cards for everyone’s pocket. In fact, most of her favorite online stores likely offer e-gift cards. Check out the respective websites and purchase a gift card for your mom. That way, she’ll get to purchase what she wants, whenever she wants to. Sounds like a win to me!
