Plant a tree or two. Better Homes and Gardens features the best small trees for any climate zone. Saucer Magnolia for zones 5-8 (most of the latitude of the country) is a favorite with wide pink and white blooms. Perfect for Mommy!
Breakfast in bed. This mom's favorite treat! Plan a simple or elaborate menu, either way make it with love and mom in mind. Pair an organic egg with artisan toast, butter and jam. Pick up a few pastries early morning or Saturday night and pair with mango mimosas. Consider Bon Appetit's luxurious menu here. Add coffee, ice water, a single rose or bloom, her favorite Sunday reading whether the newspaper or US Weekly. Artfully display these on a linen clad tray and watch as Mom soaks up her poached egg yolk with love. And be sure to ask her FIRST if you can join her to help her open her cards and presents!
Spa Day! Treat mom to a few treatments at her favorite soothing spa destination or create a haven at home. Mix up a few all natural spa treatments from Web MD's list of magical tricks culled from the country's leading spas. Draw her a bath with her favorite salts and natural scents. Carve out time for her to relax. Create a play list that will remind her of great times together and take her to her special place.
Surprise her with all the single ladies! Gather a couple of her single friends who may have dropped off speed dialwith the arrival of junior and junior miss and book the best table at the locavore bistro in your neighborhood. Ask one of her pals to pick her up or better find a close location so she can stroll to lunch and home to enjoy the fresh air. Be sure to pre-order a bottle of bubbly for the pretty ladies!
