Mother’s Day is going to be a little unique this year because many Americans are practicing social distancing. So, if you usually take your mother out for dinner or lunch on this special day, you might want to get a little more creative with how you treat your mom this Mother’s Day. Luckily, the pros at Roman Electric have a few homey/ stay-at-home Mother’s Day ideas that will undoubtedly make your mom feel special!
1. Do Any Housework or Repairs for Her!
If it’s safe and possible, show up at mom’s home and offer to do any housework for her. One of the best ways to make mom happy is to perform acts of service for her. If she has something in her house that needs repair, maintenance or cleaning, help her out or simply do it for her while she relaxes. Here are some common tasks that you can do! To ensure you and your mother are protected, try to wear masks or face coverings and maintain a safe distance.
- Change Her HVAC Unit’s Air Filter
Changing an HVAC unit’s air filter is one of the easiest ways to maintain it. It improves indoor air quality, prevents costly problems and reduces energy consumption by 5 to 15%!
- Thoroughly Vacuum and Dust her Home
Help her out with spring cleaning by thoroughly vacuuming and dusting her home. This will not only make her feel appreciated, but it will also ensure her home is free of dust mites, dander and other allergens.
- Fix Leaks
If your mom has been complaining about any leaks around her house, surprise her by showing up with some tools and offer to fix them for her! Leaks can be incredibly frustrating and wasteful—according to the Environmental Protection Agency, common household leaks can account for 10,000 gallons of water lost a year. By helping your mom fix home leaks, you can make her feel appreciated and help her save on her water bill.
2. Cook for Her/ Send Her Favorite Meal Her Way
Our moms spend so much of their lives cooking our favorite foods for us; it’s only fair that we return the favor. Cook your mom’s favorite meal and drop it off at her place! If you have kids, get them involved too so your mom can get some extra love this Mother’s Day. If your mother lives too far for you to do that, have a meal or even a simple box of chocolates or cookies delivered to her from a shop near her.
3. Give Her a Call!
If your mother lives away from you, the best way you can make her feel special on Mother’s Day is by simply giving her a call. Your mom will feel appreciated just by you and your family trying to stay connected during a time when everyone is so isolated.
