Whether you’re trying to keep costs low this Mother’s Day or you’re looking for a last minute gift, here are five ways you can use the internet to help you celebrate.
Kinder to the environment, can be personalised and saves money– what’s not to love? With the many benefits compared to a traditional card it’s no surprise that e-cards have become more and more popular over the last few years. Use a search engine to find a free website to produce your e-card and send to your Mum.
2. Online library registration
Does your Mum love to read? Why not help her to register for an online library? Durham County Council’s Library Online gives you access to a wealth of eBooks, eMagazines, eAudiobooks and more. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.
3. Zoom afternoon tea
Zoom exploded during the pandemic and it’s still proving an excellent way for loved ones to keep in touch when you can’t meet up face to face. So instead of a fancy, expensive trip for cakes, scones and sandwiches, why not host a virtual afternoon tea? You could even send the goodies to her with an online shop.
4. Create a print on Canva
Nothing says I love you like a personalised print. With free tools like Canva you can create a print with your Mum’s favourite colours and words to make a truly unique gift. Just print and frame or even better, send it by email!
5. Create a video
Apps like 1 Second Everyday allow you to compile memories locked in photos and videos to create a montage video – a great way to present all of your Mum’s lovely moments to her. You could even get the closest people in her life to record a clip saying what they love about her for an extra special touch.
