Stay Connected: 4 Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day This Year

This year, we’ve had to adapt many of our usual at-home activities and that includes how we celebrate Mother’s Day.  While going to her favorite restaurant or hosting a big family gathering may not be an option, we can still make this a special day for our moms.  

Here are a few ways we can celebrate our moms this year, whether it’s from afar or at home: 

rise and brunch

Make this a wonderful day for your mom by surprising her with a fabulous brunch spread or breakfast in bed. If you can’t be together this year, send her groceries or a breakfast basket and enjoy the meal virtually with all of your loved ones. Use your smartphone to capture the moment!


make a gourmet meal & toast together

As we all spend more time at home, a skill surely all of us are improving is our cooking. Together or virtually, prepare her favorite dish and follow it up with her favorite cocktail. Experiment with different ingredients you have at home, or you can even send mom a cocktail and meal kit with all the essential ingredients! 


family photo session

What mom doesn’t love capturing pictures of her family? All you need is good lighting and a smartphone with a camera. You can capture a new memory, recreate her favorite old photo, or convince mom to do a time-lapse session, all the while having fun and laughing together. Make fun edits to your photos, like using the spot color feature, for example.


simply make a call

All any mom wants on Mother’s Day is to connect with her daughters, sons and loved ones, and thanks to modern-day technology we can do that at any time from anywhere. Take advantage of your smartphone’s screen and camera innovations to make a video call to mom. With hundreds of platform options available, a simple call can go a long way – especially for those who can’t be with mom in person this year. 

No matter what you decide, camera effects and features across all Motorola smartphones can help you capture the moment. You can count on all new members of the moto g8 family or the motorola one macro to perfect close-up of your meals or even with the Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities included across the entire Motorola portfolio for a professional picture of food. For a family session photo, you can use our camera effects or portrait mode and bokeh effect, which you can find on all devices in the new moto g8 family.

While this year’s holiday might not be what we planned for, you can still make this a special occasion that mom will remember forever. The most important thing is to enjoy the time spent with your mom.
