This Mother’s Day may be a bit unusual for some people. Many have brunch or dinner out traditions that they just won’t be able to do this year.
Also, May 6-12 is Nurses’ Week and we all know how hard nurses are working these days to keep us all going. Same with our teachers, who switched gears with very little notice and turned their classrooms into virtual learning centers to keep our kids in school while under quarantine. Teacher Appreciation Week is this week, May 4-8. We surveyed our friends to come up with some COVID-safe ways to let these wonderful people know how much we love and appreciate them.
Better Than Roses -- Treat mom to our “Better Than Flowers” package where she will enjoy our Custom 60 minute massage and our deluxe manicure which includes their choice of gel. Order from Traveling Aura, here.
Send Fancy Goodies -- I found some absolutely decadent chocolates at St. Pete-area-based William Dean Chocolates. There are many gift basket options out there, but we love to support local, small businesses and really. YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS CHOCOLATE!
Write a Real Letter -- You know, like old school with a pen and paper. When was the last time you or your mom got mail that didn’t say “balance due” on it somewhere and was also not addressed to “resident”? A heartfelt letter, along with possibly some photo prints and or maybe some artwork from the children would go a long way toward replacing that brunch.
Send Brunch -- Use your favorite delivery service to have brunch delivered to mom’s door.
Make a Video -- Whip out that phone or tablet and record your family members singing songs, performing a dance act or a funny skit, or just record loving messages. This one takes some planning but it’s a memorable and thoughtful way to show your love and appreciation.
