How To Make Mother’s Day Special Long Distance
I’ve been where you are! That is away from my mom during Mother’s day too.
I’m sure your sad because you wish you could be there to celebrate this special day.
Believe me, I know!
I was a military wife for many years and lived all over the world. I had my days that I missed my mom too (it didn’t just have to be Mother’s day.)
It’s a bit of homesick. In fact, there were many of us wives that missed our moms, mamas, and mums! We were from all over the world.
With that said, I hope these ideas help inspire you to do something special for your mom!
When is Mother’s Day?
Sunday, May 12, 2019
Wow, it sure is coming up quick! Here is a helpful list of ideas to help you celebrate with your mom long distance.
Long Distance Mother’s Day Gifts
A creative Mother’s Day gift from near or far would be to recreate childhood memories.
For example, you could recreate pictures from your childhood.
What you will need to do is recreate the moment the picture was taken. Try to use the same color of clothing, theme, and pose the same way.
If you have a brother or sister? Ask your siblings to take part in the photo shoot.
Something special like this will definitely be treasured by your mom forever.

Long Distance Relationship Mother and Daughter Fun
Even though you’re far away from her. Set aside time to call mom via Skype.
A fun way to celebrate mom is to see her face to face.
Fill her in on what’s going on in your life she will appreciate that more than you know!
Tip: If you have siblings coordinate a time that you can make a group chat. It will make for a memorable experience!
Snapchat has a lot of fun options to create pictures that can make your mom laugh, especially on the days that she really misses you.
Snapchat also has the option to do Face Swap… this can allow you to send your mom proof that you’re looking more and more like her every day.
Pajama Night With Mom? This involves Skype, the same movie, and of course you’ll both need popcorn.
Skype mom over the computer and play the same movie at the same time.
You’ll both be able to laugh, cry, and share at the same moments. It will be almost like your home again.
The Conclusion of How To Make Mother’s Day Special Long Distance
Remember mom just wants to be remembered. She wants to feel special.
If you want to be helpful gift something to mom that could help her sleep better or get around the house easier.
If you want to give a more personal touch why not send mom a good old fashion personal letter in the mail.
It would be unexpected and she would love it. You could always include your favorite photo of the two of you. I bet you she would cry happy tears. 🙂
If you want to help mom relax? Send her a relaxation kit such as; sunglasses, beach towel, flip-flops, sunscreen, magazine or a book, and put it all in a decorative box that you personalize or let the kids draw on for Grandma. 🙂
Lastly, if you don’t have the available funds to do something, it’s okay.
