A mother can come in many forms and be present in different parts of your life. Whether she was there from the time you were born or came into the picture later, what matters is that the mother figure in your life has impacted who you are today. Mother’s Day is your chance to celebrate this.

While you should do what you can to make Mom feel special every day of the year, this day is a chance to show her a little extra appreciation. Even if you live too far away to see each other in person or are still practicing social distancing, there are meaningful ways that you can celebrate!

As a senior living provider in Tennessee and West Virginia, The Pavilion Senior Living knows how important connection is, whether in person or virtual. That’s why our team is sharing remote ideas for celebrating Mother’s Day.

Idea 1: Send a Heartfelt Card or Letter

Instead of picking out a card that is already prewritten and signing your name to it, grab a blank card and write your own message. Tell the mother figure in your life how much she means to you and how much she has impacted your life. Let her know you appreciate everything she has done - and continues to do - for you.

Idea 2: Create a Personalized Playlist

Music has been used to express emotion and connect people throughout history, so why not use it to celebrate Mother’s Day? Start by adding songs that you and your mom like to listen to together. You could also include her favorite songs and any tunes that you think summarize your relationship. Then, when you send it to her, listen together and share memories you associate with each song.

Let the songs speak for you if you’re struggling to find the words to tell Mom how important she is to you. As author Hans Christian Andersen once said, “Where words fail, music speaks.” 

Idea 3: Edit or Convert Home Video Footage

If your mom has hours and hours of old home video footage shot on VHS or film, a great remote idea to celebrate Mother’s Day is to edit or convert this footage. Chances are, these home videos are sitting in a box and have been collecting dust for years (do people still own VCRs?).

So this Mother’s Day, gather up these home videos, find a company that will convert the footage (iMemories, LegacyBox), and send the digital copies to your mom to enjoy for years to come!

Idea 4: Create a Scrapbook or Photo Album

If you do not have access to old home videos, another great option is to create a scrapbook or photo album. The good thing about this option is that the photos can be old or more recent. As long as they are meaningful memories, the mother figure in your life will appreciate and cherish it. 

Idea 5: Send a Self-Care Package

We all could use a spa day, so this Mother’s Day, send the spa to your mom. Send a package filled with items like:

  • Bath bombs
  • Face masks
  • Essential oils
  • Candles
  • Tea
  • Lotion

Practicing self-care is so important, but many of us often don’t take the time to do it. By sending a self-care package to your mom, you are reminding her to prioritize herself and that she deserves a chance to spoil herself.

You could even double up and prepare a self-care package for yourself to enjoy a remote spa day with Mom!

Whatever you decide to do to celebrate the mother figure in your life, just make sure to make it personal and sincere. Even though Mother’s Day is the day meant to make her feel special, don’t forget to make her feel valued and appreciated every day of the year!

At The Pavilion Senior Living, we work hard to ensure our residents feel valued each and every day. Our programs and services are designed to help individuals live life with purpose.
