No matter what your Mother’s Day plans are; brunch, a matinee, even a Zoom session if you live far away from your family, treating the most important women in your life to a special present is a must!
This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 10, 2020 and there is no doubt that the 2020 edition of this holiday will be the strangest one in years. Though many families will necessarily be separated by social distancing, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate virtually and give a gift to show your appreciation and love for the special women in your life.
Given the distinct challenges of the times, we have selected an assortment of thoughtful and practical ways across a wide set of categories, which will make you feel like you are enjoying that Mother’s Day getaway you had planned or that much needed getaway to unwind and relax at home with your Round Hill family.
Make Her Breakfast
It’s mom’s, Grandma’s and any other lady figure in your life big day, so start off Mother’s Day on the right note with a table full of sweet and savory treats.
Have mom wake up to the aroma of freshly brewed Coffee, home cooked breakfast and lots of love and warmth. Let her sleep in, then enjoy a home cooked meal and snuggles.
You will score extra points if you serve these delicious Mother’s Day breakfast ideas –pancakes, banana muffins and eggs but you will be mom’s favourite if you make her the Jamaican ackee and saltfish that she normally eats every morning at Round Hill.
Ackee and saltfish is Jamaica’s national dish and can be served with a combination of any of these items: boiled yellow yam, fried or roasted breadfruit, boiled or fried dumplings, boiled green bananas and fried plantain.
Host A Virtual Concert in Her Honor
One of the most thoughtful and fun thing to do this year is to have a virtual karaoke concert for mom. For persons who live at home with mom they could simple set up a karaoke station where you and your family could perform for mom. For person who live apart this could be done virtually.
Make a list of her favorite songs, and just sing along to them. I am sure Mom will be smiling from ear to ear and laughing out loud while enjoying her favourite playlist being performed by her family. Here are some of our favourite Jamaican love songs just for the special lady in your life:
A Song for Mama – Boyz II Men
Hey Mama – Kanye West
Look What You’ve Done – Drake
Love of My Life – Brian McKnight
Mama – Christopher Martin
Thank U Mama – Sizzla
Mama – Garnett Silk
Mama’s Song – Romain Virgo
Strength of A Woman – Shaggy
Mama Prayed – Agent Sasco ft. Glacia Robinson
She’s Royal – Tarrus Riley
Homemade Body Scrubs
Summer is fast approaching and before you know it, swimsuit season is here. It is never too early to start preparing, and and now is the time to begin exfoliating.
Here are few of our favorites:
Write A Heartfelt Poem or Letter
You can’t go wrong with a card. Whether it be a poem or a letter. Cards offer you the rare opportunity to codify how special someone is to you. Even if you pair it with a gift, a heartfelt card should never be forgotten.
Write something that speaks to the relationship you and your mother have. A written poem or letter conveys a feeling of appreciation, thanks and love.
If she is a joker, maybe write a light joke that will make her smile. If she is a literature fanatic then perhaps a favorite quote from her favorite poem. As long it’s thoughtful, it’s bound to bring a smile to her face.
Build A Scrapbook
A scrapbook is a great gift for Moms. Fill it with pictures of the whole family and little stories you gather from the people in the stories to document where they were photographed and what was the occasion. Your mom will be looking through the photo album again and again, reminiscing on the memories of each picture.
Gift Baskets and Care Packages
This is a perfect gift for mom of all ages. Fill a basket or bag with Mom’s most favored snacks, gadgets, treats and a bottle of her favorite drink. Mom can relax and munch on her goodies!
Surprise Her with A Dream Vacation
Now is the ideal time to plan a much needed getaway trip for mom, and the perfect opportunity to treat her to a trip to Jamaica – particularly Round Hill.
Whether it is a trip by herself to relax and unwind or it’s a family trip to enjoy each other’s company, I’m sure the mother figures in your lives will appreciate this gesture.

It is no secret that this year Mother’s Day will look a lot different due to the COVID-19 and the social distancing rules all over the world, but it does not need to be any less special. The kindest thing you can do for all the mother figures in your life is to make them feel appreciated.
Whatever you decide to do for Mother’s day, make sure you say I love and appreciate you a million times.
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day, from the Round Hill family to yours!
