I imagine many of us are still trying to figure out how to celebrate Mother’s Day quarantine style. Here are some ideas:

Order takeout

Many restaurants are offering take-and bake meals, at-home cooking kits, and prepared family meals. Push your own cheese pizza at Pie Pushers, take and bake Luna’s empanadas, grab a donut decorator kit from Rise. See our guide on Where to Find Take-and Bake Dishes here.

Do a Cocktail kit at home

Durham Distillery is now offering curbside pickup along with a new addition, cocktail kits. They have a French 75 or Martini kit available.

Or a craft kit

Crafts and Drafts has some seriously cool craft kits like mini terrariums, leather earring kits, birdhouse kits, cross stitch kits, embroidered necklace kits, and card-making kits! And bonus, their bottle shop also has a great selection of beer, wine, cider, and seltzer.

Have fresh flowers delivered

Bowerbird Flowers has some gorgeous bouquets. Wild Scallions Farm still has some peonies or mixed bouquets available for delivery. Or grab a potted plant or rose bush at a garden center like For Garden’s Sake.

Definitely do dessert

The Parlour is back open for take home pints, ice cream sandwiches, and to-go soft serve. Monuts is also back again for takeout with their full menu including donuts. And you can’t go wrong with Pincho Loco’s ice cream sandwiches.
