Mother’s Day Gift Ideas During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Traditionally on Mother’s Day, we might pop into town to buy a card, lovingly handwrite a personal message, buy her some flowers from a florist and deliver her homemade breakfast in bed. But, with the Coronavirus pandemic on our hands, for many people, these lovely gestures aren’t an option this year.
Perhaps you’re self-isolating, or your Mum is in a high-risk group and not accepting visitors; maybe you’re unable to travel and visit your Mum.

So how can you show your Mum love and appreciation this Mother’s Day?

This year, we have put together unconventional alternatives to traditional Mother’s Day gifts - without losing that all-important personal touch.

Mother’s Day Cards

Online greetings card shops, such as Funky Pigeon and Moonpig, are brilliant resources however, for many people these are missing that personal touch when the message is typed within the card.

How about using a local independent retailer instead? Here in Aylesbury, there is a lovely little greetings card shop, Impressions Cards and Gifts, and they are offering a delivery service this Mother’s Day to help local people get those all-important Mother’s Day cards to their Mums on time.

If you’re unable to leave the house due to the Coronavirus, then why not give them a call and place your order with them directly?

Mother’s Day Flowers

Flowers are perhaps the most traditional Mother’s Day gift, and we are truly spoilt for choice with colour and flower combinations, with something to suit every Mum and every budget!

If you are unable to visit your Mum this Mother’s Day, as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, a bouquet seems the obvious gift of choice this year.

With so many large online retailers, such as Interflora, available with a couple of clicks, it’s easy to forget the independent shops. Little independent florists, such as Linda James, who is just a short walk from our High Wycombe branch, are still taking orders for Mother’s Day and will be able to give you a much more bespoke, personal service. Linda James Florist has a lovely selection of bouquets available on their website however, we would recommend giving them a call to discuss your ideas as they will be able to put something unique together for your Mum this Mother’s Day. They even offer some lovely little extras, such as helium balloons and even champagne (which would be the perfect accompaniment to brunch in bed!)

Mother’s Day Brunch Delivery

If you usually like to give your Mum a relaxing day on Mother’s Day, without needing to cook or wash up, then why not order brunch to be delivered to her front door?

Here at Eat At The Works, we have a varied menu and something to suit every Mum’s taste! From sweet crêpes, piled high with fresh fruit or rich chocolate and honeycomb, to savoury breakfast waffles with poached eggs, smoked salmon and hollandaise. We even make our own ice-cream on-site and could deliver a tub of Mum’s favourite flavour to last her a week! Check out our menu over on our website for inspiration.

We may even sneak a surprise in with your delivery as an extra gift for your Mum this Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day Gift Cards

Why not give your Mum an IOU in the form of a gift card, with a promise to spend another day together when you will next be reunited?

From an ice-cream making experience to an escape room challenge, The Works has gift experiences which can be enjoyed with the whole family.

Your Mum doesn’t have to miss out this Mother’s Day. There are many choices of gifts which you can order online or over the phone, without losing that personal touch. Mother’s Day is something to look forward to and, together, we can make this a positive day during this difficult time, for Mums and local family-run businesses alike.

The Works is an independent, family-run restaurant and escape room, with branches in the heart of High Wycombe and Aylesbury.
