Plan the perfect breakfast in bed for mom on Mother's Day with our easy, helpful tips.

  • If you want breakfast to be a surprise, choose a few make-ahead dishes and prep them while she's out the night before or at a different house. Wake up early and put the finishing touches on the dishes, and then bring the tray to her for a nice breakfast surprise.
  • You don't have to bake Mom five elaborate breakfast dishes on Mother's Day; getting served a homemade breakfast in bed is special even when it's simple. Include a small bunch of her favorite flowers in a glass vase and a nice handmade card for an extra special touch.
  • If you have small children, let them help with breakfast by choosing easy recipes, such as pancakes or French toast. Mom will also appreciate sweet handmade gifts, such as cards or coupon booklets that relieve her of household duties.
  • Ask Mom a few days ahead what her favorite breakfast recipes are to get an idea of what to make. If she gets suspicious of your surprise, go ahead and tell her -- that way you won't have to sneak around the kitchen early in the morning -- and mom can sleep in as late as she wants.
