You don't have to go out to take advantage of some special Mother's Day offerings in Cambridge.

As part of their #MothersDayAtHome initiative, the city says just because we're physical distancing, doesn't mean we can't celebrate this Sunday.

"This year, mothers are busier than ever juggling the demands of navigating this pandemic with online schooling of their children," Mayor Kathryn McGarry says in a release.

"From moms working the frontlines and those working from home, to moms struggling with financial uncertainty or worried about a family member due to the impacts COVID-19, the pressure has never been higher.  As well, there are many grandmothers who will not get to see their kids and grandkids this year."

On the aspect of gift giving, the city's #OrderFromHome campaign details local stores that offer online and contact-free customer service options.

"Many of the downtown shops are delivering beautiful Mother's Day care packages and unique gift ideas," states the release.

Now for those looking for that special Mother's Day meal, and not feeling up to cooking, Cambridge says you can browse a list of restaurants offering takeout and delivery.

You can find the restaurant map, along with a list of other options under the #OrderFromHome campaign HERE.

For the kids, the city is running a photo submission contest on their Instagram, with a $25 gift card up for grabs.

You can also take advantage of the other activities under the #RecFromHome initiative, such as Mother's Day gift and craft ideas, including natural art projects and a colouring page you can print out.

The city is also acknowledging those mothers we've lost, and reminds people visiting cemetaries to do so safely.

"We urge visitors to keep COVID-19 precautions in mind and attend the cemetery in groups no larger than five people," the city says.

"Please also maintain physical distancing from others who are visiting or plan your visit on another day to limit the numbers of visitors at once."
