Ideas for Mother’s Day Lockdown Celebrations

This Sunday will be a different kind of Mothers’ Day. Many of us won’t be able to spend the day with our mums and shower them with gifts. 

If it was up to us, we’d postpone Mothers’ day to give us the opportunity to celebrate it how we want post-pandemic. Much to our chagrin, we have no control of the matter. Don’t fret though. If you have a little cash to spare, you can have something nice delivered to mum’s doorstep if she lives in Nairobi. And if you don’t have any spare cash, we inspire you with other ideas. Here are some options.

Jumia Fundamentals

Order a Jumia Fundamentals box for mum. It includes groceries and COVID-19 essentials like gloves, masks and sanitizer. Yes, they’re not your regular mothers’ day gifts but nothing says I love you like practical gifts. We’re sure mum will love them.

Kilimall Beauty

Kilimall has an awesome sale on most of their products under the beauty section. You can get a set of 10 makeup brushes for Ksh 499, weaves, nail art and even perfume for under Ksh 1000. Mum can have a mini spa treatment at home.

House of Leather

House of leather is famous for selling almost anything from trinkets and jewelry to home decor and scented candles…the whole shebang! Their prices are fair too. You can check out their website and browse for items your mum would love. Call them to arrange for delivery.


They have an array of gifts specifically for Mothers’ Day. Items range from delectable chocolates and bath salts to jewelry sets, cards, perfumes and tote bags. Purpink has a same-day delivery policy which makes it a favorite with many.

Posh Florists

The Kenyan flower industry is wilting amid this pandemic. Support local florists by getting mum a beautiful mothers’ day bouquet. They also have wine and candy to go along with the flowers. You can choose from Lilies, Roses, and Chrysanthemums.

No cash?

While most moms of course appreciate a store-bought gift, they mostly just crave recognition for everything they have done and continue to do. This appreciation can be shown in so many ways that don’t cost any extra money such as cooking mom a meal, writing her a poem or a song, or making her a card. Here’s some inspiration to get you started: 

If you are far away from your mom, there’s nothing like a long telephone conversation to brighten her day and let her know that you care.

Happy Mother’s Day
