As the current situation continues, people all over the world are adjusting to their ‘new normal’. Whether that’s working from home, exercising in the lounge room, homeschooling the kids, or catching up with friends for Friday night drinks via video call, it’s fair to say our lives look pretty different right now.
And while we might be acclimatising for the most part, one of the hardest things to deal with is being separated from loved ones.
As Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 10) approaches, many of us will be preparing to spend it away from our mums and thinking of ways to make her feel special from a safe distance.
By sending flowers, having virtual afternoon tea, or treating her to a RedBalloon experience to enjoy once the current restrictions are lifted, there are still so many ways to make mum feel loved.
If you’re after ideas, RedBalloon has you covered – and their vouchers are valid for three years. From hot air ballooning with a champagne breakfast to cookery classes, to five-course meals by the water and glamping among the vineyards, there is something that will please every mum.
If you don’t want to wait until the end of iso to treat your mum, RedBalloon also offer at home experiences you can have sent right to her door. There are at home wine and cheese tasting kits, home-delivered three-course gourmet meals for two, pottery making kits, chocolate hampers, and more.
As we look ahead to happier times like these, we thought we’d ask 8 women what it’s like missing their mums, and what they’ll do as soon as they’re outside of isolation.
