The coronavirus changes our lives - and Mother's Day as we know it. But despite the ban on contact and distance rules all over the world, there are many ideas to cheer up your Mom on Mother’s Day. Even though in some areas some corona measures were relaxed, the contact rules applicable due to COVID-19 should be adhered to due to the risk of infection. So it's better not to hug. The easiest way is to keep your distance when mom has a lot of space in the house, a large terrace, or even an entire garden. Simply put the chairs a good two meters apart - done!
Here are some ideas for all who are far away or cannot visit due to other risks:
Meet your Mother online
Even without physical closeness, we can show Mom how important she is to us. Modern technology helps us do this. Free apps such as Skype, Zoom, or Whatsapp enable video chats on standard mobile phones or tablets, which can now be found in almost every household. The apps are usually easy to use: after a few finger touches, children or grandchildren can be seen and heard on the cell phone. Mothers (and, by the way, fathers) enjoy this type of contact not only on Mother's Day.
How about a letter?
Or how about an adventurous idea: a letter! In times of digital hustle and bustle, it is not only nice for mums to find something in the mailbox that is not advertising, tickets, or bills. The good old post is the perfect way to send pictures of grandchildren on Mother's Day. Above all, you can hang them on the wall or in the fridge.
We wish all mothers and their families that they hold out until we experience easier times again and the hugs now exposed can be made again soon.
We won't be able to attend the AmericasMart Atlanta Winter 2021, but find us at the CanGift Virtual Show in February 2021! It's already time for the first trade show of 2021. The AmericasMart Atlanta winter market will take place with showrooms from 12.01.-19.01.2021 and temporaries from 13.01.-17.01.2021. As we are based in Canada, and the Coronavirus pandemic is still limiting the possibilities of travel, our showroom at the Atlanta Market will remain closed for this winter season. However, we highly miss the personal contact to our customers and will keep you updated on our upcoming events!
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! It's the most wonderful time of the year and you are the most wonderful part of our business. Thank you for making this – and every time of the year – so much brighter for us. We couldn't have gone through this year without you!
We are opening our seasonal pop-up store in Richmond's Lansdowne Centre this week Friday the 27th of November! Are you already in the Christmas spirit? We definitely are and have great news: We are opening a seasonal store in the Lansdowne Centre! Every year so far we had been taking part in the Vancouver Christmas Market, however, unfortunately this year, the event had to be canceled due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, we found another great opportunity to offer you our great selection of HUSS Incense burners and cones.
