Chasing Mother's Day ideas in isolation this quarantine season? Understandably, looking for gifts for mum has gotten considerably more difficult in 2020. But, that doesn't mean you should abandon your Mother's Day ideas altogether! Whether you're away from your family or you're stuck in isolation with them, there are still some fantastic present ideas out there for you to treat mum with, this year. Sure, taking around for dinner is a no-no, and unfortunately, any experience gifts will have to be limited to experiences you can have inside the house. If you're willing to get a little creative, however, you can still give your Mum and exceptionally memorable day and show her how much you care, with these Mother's Day quarantine ideas.
ClassBento’s new live classes online have a growing range of arts and craft workshops that you can learn and master from the comfort of your own living room. Using a combination of a fully interactive live stream as well as a new LiveBox feature which delivers all of the materials and resources for each class direct to your door, you can expand your artistic skillset without leaving the house and compromising your health.
If you're looking for gifts for Mum this Mother's Day, ClassBento might be able to give you a helping hand. Before quarantine season, one of our most popular workshops was our paint and sip classes, where one of our qualified local artists would guide you through the techniques and tips required to create your very own masterpiece, all while you sipped on a bottle of your favourite wine.
Fortunately, our live classes online can help your Mum create her very own masterpiece from home while enjoying a cheeky bottle of bubbly with her Mother's Day isolation activities. Paint N sip classes were one of the most popular Mother's Day ideas we offered, and our live classes online are no exception. Pick up Mum a bottle of her favourite wine, order her one of our craft boxes, and she'll spend Mother's Day exploring her creative side whilst indulging in a cheeky little booze buzz.
If the family is all in the house together, however, we have painting workshops for the whole family! You can all get creative with our portrait partner's workshop, which will show you how to paint each individual member of your family! Whatever you choose to paint, our live classes online make for a fantastic Mother's Day quarantine celebration.
As we mentioned above, your Mother's Day activities in 2020 will have to be restricted to what you can do in the house, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're that limited! No Mother's Day ideas list would be complete without the word “candle?” scrawled somewhere towards the bottom of the page. Much like Guylian chocolates or soap from The Body Shop, buying mum a candle for Mother's Day is a bit of a classic. And although candle making may have lost its commercial viability due to the light bulb, candle making as a crafting pastime is enjoying a resurgence.
Designing and building candles from scratch is an incredibly unique crafting experience and not one that everyone has the chance to participate in. ClassBento’s live classes online offer your Mum a few options when it comes to picking what type and style of candle she might enjoy making this Mother's Day. Whether it’s utilising soy wax to make a vegan-friendly candle, put discovering a range of fragrances that might work well in a natural candle. Candle making is a fantastic way to pass the time and give you a mum the gift of fire for Mother's Day. Who doesn't love playing with fire? It's also a great little survival tip because if the electricity grid ever goes down, your mum now has a set of skills that allow her to provide light for her house and family.
If candle making isn't your thing, our soap making workshops are a good alternative! There's no better time to pamper yourself than in self-isolation, and offering your mum the chance to make her own range of boutique soaps is one of the most unique Mother's Day gifts available. Similar to candle making, your mum will be able to design and build her own soaps in whatever style, colour and fragrance she chooses! You may not be able to get to The Body Shop this Mother's Day, but it doesn't mean your Mother's Day present ideas can’t help your mum with a bit of crucial self-care.
We don't mean to get too morose, but maintaining your health is very important during quarantine season. That's why ClassBento now offers a course on building your own cotton face masks. Although this isn’t the gold standard for Mother’s Day present ideas, it’s a fun and creative way to ensure that when your Mum leaves the house, she’s staying as safe as possible. Buying up surgical masks en masse has put a strain on the supply and demand for them in hospitals, and building your own is a small but important way to ease the pressure on Australia’s healthcare system.
Your mother can learn some basic stitching and sewing techniques, whilst making a face mask out of recycled and upcycled materials of her choice! If your Mum is already a sewing maestro, our live classes online can also show her how to weave, or help her discover the joy of punch needle embroidery! Whatever you choose this Mother’s Day, you can make your mum still feel appreciated with this Mother’s Day quarantine ideas.
Showing your mother you care about her shouldn’t be stressful, and Mother’s Day 2020 is no different. ClassBento’s new live classes online give you the opportunity to show your Mum how much you care without compromising her health. So whether it’s giving her the gift of art, helping her create her own candles, or teaching her the methods of making a quirky face mask, ClassBento is here to help with all your Mother’s Day ideas.
