If you are bored out of your mind, here is a list of gifts that you can make within the safety of your own home to give to your mother on May 10th.


1. Make your mom a home-cooked meal.

3. Upcycle clothes to give your mom a style boost.
Youtube is filled with tutorials on how to revamp your style from home by tie-dying your mom’s old t-shirts and cutting new designs into them. Other popular upcycling trends include bleaching old jeans and painting old shoes.



4. Make a new playlist for your mom to listen to.

Spotify’s recommendations for a Coronavirus themed playlist include Stayin’ Alive by the Bee Gee’s and It’s The End Of The World As We Know It by R.E.M. Or, create a positive playlist to lift your mood with songs like, Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles and Happy by Pharrell Williams.


5. Paint her a paint-by-number of your family.
You don’t have to be an amazing artist to produce a great painting! The website lets you upload your own photos and turn them into paint by numbers.
