Surprise, it’s Mother’s Day! As if you didn’t know. Feting mom in lockdown, though, is a completely different matter. Lucky for you, we have some ideas. Like, how to still make her feel special despite sheltering-in-place forcing you apart this year (even if she has no idea how to use Zoom). And how to settle disagreements between you and your family members about whether or not to break quarantine for her (and potentially putting her health at risk). Not to mention, how to thank her like a pro athlete — or honor her in ink. Finally, if all else fails, you can always get her high. Or if that kind of flower isn’t her thing, throw together a nice bouquet with what your backyard has to offer.
Hey, look on the bright side: At least you don’t have to go out for some overrated brunch!
