Whether you want to serve breakfast in bed or not, making your mom something to eat first thing is the least you can do this mother’s day. A great mother’s day breakfast has to end with a heart shaped something. Whether it’s pancakes, waffles or French toast. This is the time to show you’ve made an effort. As a bonus, this would be the right time to give her that bouquet or mother’s day gift you want to buy.

2. Have a movie day

Find a puzzle with an image you know your mom will love. The more pieces it has, the longer you can spend time putting the puzzle together. Make your puzzle over drinks and snacks. The activity could spark some great conversations.

6. Have a themed dinner

If your mom loves Paris, then have a Parisian dinner. If she is a big fan of the 1920’s then dress up and cook food that is inspired by the era. Since social distancing is necessary at this point in time, hosting your special dinner at home is key. Buy some decorations and have a nuclear family party at home.

7. Order your mom a special delivery

For your best friend, confidante, therapist and protector, there may be endless descriptions, but nothing is enough to thank the all-round superwoman in your life.
