Celebrating Moms From a Distance

  • Write and mail a letter. USPS is not canceled (yet).
  • Find a recipe you both love and set up a call to virtually bake or cook together.
  • Order and send a customized puzzle with a photo of you together or even a collage of baby pictures. University Photos has several photo gifts you can choose from.
  • Host a fancy virtual tea hour. Wear your best hat and accessories and enjoy crustless sandwiches and fancy cups and saucers.
  • Not a tea person, set aside time to have a virtual coffee hour.
  • Find a local florist in mom’s community and send flowers! (We listed a few above;)
  • Have the grandkids make a special craft and stick it in the mail for a special mail surprise.
  • Put that DIY cocktail bar to use and have a virtual happy hour.
  • Create and send a playlist of songs that remind you of your mom. Perhaps add in tech support if you anticipate mom needing a little help.
  • Participate in a virtual wine tasting together. Winefest Des Moines along with local restaurants have been hosting virtual wine tastings. Watch their Facebook Page for future events.
  • Send mom a sweet video message on Mother’s Day or just give her a call on the phone.  
  • And of course, you can always order a gift online. Discover what central Iowa businesses have to offer at Shop Where I Live, an online e-commerce website that is your one-stop shop for all things local.
