Breakfast in Bed
Even the most notorious procrastinators can make up for lost time by dusting off their culinary talents and bringing mom homemade breakfast in bed. Whip up her favorite morning meal and deliver it to her with a tray, a card and plenty of love. Add a book, magazine or newspaper and let her know she can take her sweet time starting the day. Even if your kitchen skills don’t extend beyond pouring coffee and making toast, your mom will definitely be touched by this thoughtful gesture.
