Re-imagine a Mother’s Day to Remember

This year’s Mother’s Day might look a little different, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be just as special. If there’s ever a year to get back to the basics of what Mother’s Day is all about – it’s this one. These unusual times have given many of us an opportunity to take stock and show our gratitude and love in new ways. Big, expensive gifts are out. Thoughtfulness is in.

Contact-free love for Mom

If your mom lives far away or you’re looking for ways to show your love while practicing physical distancing, consider some contact-free ways to make mom’s day:

  • Rekindled your passion for baking? Drop off some special homemade goodies.
  • Dinner’s on you: order up mom’s favourite and have it delivered or drop off one of your own creations. (BCAA Members save 10% on online orders at Harvey’s, Swiss Chalet, or Montana’s)
  • Send mom a personal letter or thank you note with your most-treasured shared memories.
  • Get creative – perform a poem or song via video or in-person from 6ft away.
  • Send a digital photo album or movie creation using photos or videos you’ve saved.
  • Send flowers! Check out the beautiful creations by Teleflora, all of which can be delivered. (BCAA Members save 25% and earn 5% in CAA Dollars®)

Love at home for Mom

Being stuck at home doesn’t need to mean a lack-lustre Mother’s Day. Make your time together count with some fun ways to celebrate at home:

  • Whip up a classic brunch with all mom’s favourites.
  • Play her favourite game as a family and celebrate extra big when she wins!
  • Give her space – to read, watch her shows, or take a long soaker bath.
  • Pamper mom with what she loves – stock up on face masks, foot rubs and other fun goodies (Members earn up to 5% in CAA Dollars at Sephora and 4% at The Body Shop).
  • Plan a mom’s choice movie night and make sure you’ve got all her favourite snacks.
  • Don’t forget the clean-up - do mom’s share of the chores.

Pampering Mom with gifts

Thoughtful gifts will never go out of style! If you’re looking for something extra special for mom, here are some ideas:

  • Show some local love by ordering gifts from her favourite local stores. Call ahead to check about contact-free pick-up or see if it can be delivered to her directly.
  • Citrus, lavender or Bergamot? Choose some of mom’s favourite aromatherapy oils or products from Escents Aromatherapy (Members save 10%).
  • Is mom looking for some new reads? Or maybe a comfy throw or new notebook – check out Indigo for a variety of gift ideas (Members earn up to 5% in CAA Dollars).
