Pamper mom with a relaxing morning by making her a wholesome breakfast in bed. Set up the table with some delicious treats, get beautiful dried flowers for mum, and a special Mother’s Day card. (Don’t worry, she can even plant this card and get some fresh herbs!) It is the perfect way to start Mother’s Day – surprise her once she wakes up and bring a smile to her face as she begins her day.

If you’re not culinary inclined, there’s no need to set up an elaborate spread. Instead, whip up an omelet or make some pancakes with a cup of coffee or tea on the side. You can even gift her this Best Mom Ever Mother’s Day Mug – we’re sure she’ll cherish it!
