How to celebrate Mom this year even though you can’t take her out for brunch…
⇒ Stay connected:  This is the most important point. A phone call or video chat works, but a handwritten letter delivered to her is a more personal touch that she won’t forget. Or drop in for a physical-distancing visit. (I’ve seen the forecast—tell Mom to put on her snowsuit!)

⇒ Gift ideas:  Shop online for Mom, and maybe get her something for lounging at home, like an embroidered sleeping robe and matching silk sleeping mask. Or a teapot set or plant. And jewelry always works.

⇒ Activities:  While Mom might have to skip the hair salon for now, she can attend a virtual hair or fashion style appointment from home for beauty and style tips she can do herself.

⇒ If you live with her:  The best thing might be to give her the day off. Clean the house, do the laundry — make the day hers and do everything for her, including cooking a family dinner, having a game night or watching her favorite film.

It looks to me like this year won’t be any different from any other for my Mom – gift card!
