Return the Favor this Mother's Day

May 9th 2020

Moms are the best: they fed us, cleaned us, raised us up, taught us to be good and productive people. We owe them everything, literally, and Mother’s Day is the designated holiday for trying to return the favor. One day a year is nowhere near enough to show our moms how much they mean to us, of course, but a special Mother’s Day celebration is a good start. The form that celebration takes might be a bit different this year, though:

Extended quarantine and social distancing measures mean that it’s likely you won’t be able to celebrate in person with Mom this year. And for many people, this is business as usual: families move around, jobs take us across the country, and maybe you haven’t lived in the same place as Mom for a while already. But even if you’re an old hand at long-distance Mother’s Days, you can never have too many ideas. So we put together the best ways that you can celebrate Mom’s accomplishments at a distance, and still do your best to return the favor this year.

Give Her a Video Call

If you’ve been working from home recently, you’re probably already tired of Zoom meetings. But video calls are about human connection, and that’s what Mom needs most. From simple Google Hangouts video calls to fun Houseparty sessions with built-in games, there are lots of different videoconference services to choose from depending on your needs.

Buy Her a Subscription Service

Why limit the gifts to once a year? Surprise Mom with a monthly subscription and make her life a little easier. It seems like there’s a subscription service for everything these days, and we can see why: it’s a convenient way to make sure you have what you need (or want) without remembering to go buy it every few weeks. From bottles of wine to custom-formula shampoo, laundry soap to meal kits, finding a subscription Mom will enjoy is as easy as searching “monthly chocolate box.”

Give Her the Gift of Mobility

Besides seeing the faces of her children and grandchildren, the best thing for Mom is to stay active and healthy, and Z-CoiL footwear is the best way to stay active during quarantine: going for a walk is not only still allowed but encouraged, to help keep up mental and physical wellbeing. A high quality pair of walking shoes is absolutely essential to getting the most out of an outdoor walk, and we have many different styles of supportive women’s walking shoes to choose from.

Mother’s Day is a time to reconnect, reminisce, and have fun with the person you owe it all to, and staying at home doesn’t have to get in the way of that. With a little imagination and effort, this year’s Mother’s Day could well be Mom’s favorite so far.
