A surefire way to make sure mom starts her special day off right is to treat her to breakfast in bed, complete with some fresh cut flowers and a card. Serving her breakfast on handmade dinnerware is something she can enjoy all year round. Glazed pottery is a huge trend right now, and sourcing it locally is good for the arts, the local economy, and the heart. Add a bed tray — I’ve seen plenty of stylish designs on the Marshalls website for under $25 — that she can use to enjoy breakfasts al fresco in the warmer months or while watching movies on his laptop in bed.

Now all you have to do is figure out what to serve for breakfast. Want something unique? Order from her favorite brunch cafe through an online app — it’s an easy way to deliver a gourmet brunch without doing all the cooking.

Have a good day

For the busy mom throughout the day, whether it’s working, volunteering, or running errands, I’ve found some useful gifts that will help her out when she’s busy. One is a fitness tracker, which isn’t just for marathon runners and gym rats. Anyone who wants to have more information about their health, monitor the distance they walk or even just keep track of the time will appreciate this gift. With so many styles, you can choose the one that suits your mother’s favorite colors and style of jewelry and accessories. Add a tote bag equipped with a chic little umbrella, a rain hat, and an insulated travel mug (the most leak-proof and durable I’ve found is the Vertuo Alto travel mug for 32 $ from Nespresso) with some of her favorite coffees or teas, and she’ll be ready to get through her busy day.

Good night

After an invigorating day of brunch and sightseeing, it’s time to help mom relax and settle in for sweet dreams and a good night’s sleep. Giving scented bath salts, a cozy bathrobe and foot cream is like giving her a spa night at home. An all-natural room spray like Bleu Lavande’s Lavender Room Spray ($18.50, sourced from the Eastern Townships in Quebec) will help her relax from the bath to the bedroom — the perfect way to end her special day.
