How To Celebrate Mother's Day When You Can't See Your Mum | TOTUM
Charlotte FieldsMarch 20th

Mother's Day is just around the corner but you're stuck at university or just general quarantine.

Mother's Day just isn't the same if you can't see them, we know, but with the government advising us to practice social distancing, those Sunday plans are put on hold indefinitely.

But we thought we'd come up with a list of ways you can celebrate anyway - even when you're not physically with them!


From sending gifts and cards there's tonnes of ways to show your mum you care without being there, and don't worry, Royal Mail, Public Health England has advised there's no risk of passing germs through the letter box.

The postal service says on their website: "Public Health England (PHE) has advised that people receiving parcels are not at risk of contracting the coronavirus.

"From experience with other coronaviruses, we know that these types of viruses don't survive long on objects, such as letters or parcels."




Why not plan a Mother's Day date when we're not all cooped up?

With buyagift you can plan some quality time together. With an afternoon tea, spa day, or even just a nice meal out - when safe of course!

Having quality time when it's just you and her will be great and knowing it will be in a fantastic location is even better
