Queen for a Day
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.

Next: A gift from the heart
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.
