Pamper your mom this Mother's Day with these simple and creative ways to show her how much you care.

Breakfast in Bed
Bring Mom breakfast in bed by preparing her favorite food and drink. Place a flower in a small vase next to a little book of poetry with a note that reads, "I have a superhero in my life. I call her Mom."
If your mom is a tea drinker, or even a coffee drinker, surprise her with an afternoon tea party for two. Prepare tea or coffee with your best china and serve a few finger sandwiches, mini muffins or scones. Invite your mom to take a break, relax, sip her tea and chat for an hour or so.
When you don't have time to create from scratch, you can take almost any store-bought item and make it a gift from your heart.
Purchase a box of chocolates and under each piece write a special message like "I love you," "You're the greatest" or "Thanks, Mom." I promise each bite will be all the sweeter with your special touch.
Purchase a bouquet of flowers and create a little card that reads, "Mom, thanks a bunch. I love you."
Purchase her favorite coffee to brew and a basic white coffee mug. Add your special touch with paint pens (found at craft stores) to create a one-of-a-kind coffee mug that will warm her heart.
