This year, Mother's Day will be a little different. Since we can't take our moms out to eat in Beaufort County this Sunday, why not give her a unique gift she'll remember for years to come? There are a number of high-tech ways to keep your connection with mom even closer.
Here's a few creative ways to show mom how much you care.
Order a special meal from a local Beaufort Restaurant
There are a number of restaurants in Beaufort offering takeout and delivery. Take a look at our list of Beaufort restaurants offering takeout and delivery, and treat her to a great meal on Sunday.
Long-distance friendship lamp
This lovely lamp work by connecting to your Wi-Fi. Whenever you wave your hand over it, your mom's lamp will change to the same color, letting her know you're thinking about her. You can find them on Etsy for $80 each.
Bond Touch Bracelets
You can go with a more portable version of the lamp by wearing a bracelet that does about the same thing. When you tap the band twice, your mom will feel two taps on her wrist that mimic your touch. The associated app will also notify each of you when you miss a touch. A set of two bands are sold on Amazon for $98.
Virtual cooking class
Since you can't take your mom out for a meal in person, why not cook one for her? If you need some help, The Chef & the Dish site books a Skype cooking class with top chefs from around the world. They’ll provide you with a shopping list in advanced. Online delivery services will send you all the ingredients you’ll need.
Classes start at $299 each and are 2.5 hours long. You can find more details on classes here.
Book of the month
Your mom will be able to select five new nooks every month to enjoy. For just $9.99 a month you can both sign up. If either of you need more time to finish a book, you can skip a month without being charged.
Gift plans start at $49.99 for a three-month subscription.
Make sure mom is getting her steps in by making daily step challenges on the app (if you also own a Fitbit). Fitbit is now offering free 90-day trials of Fitbit Premium which generates personalized health insights, workout plans and relaxation tools.
Fitbit trackers start at $49.95.
Whatever you give your mom, make sure she knows how much you appreciate all she's done for you.
Have a Happy Mother's Day!
