6 thoughtful things to do for Mom on Mother's Day

She’s the leading lady in your life, and today (Mother's Day) is your chance to show her just how special she really is to you. From breakfast in bed to tea for two, We've got a bunch of clever ideas that will make it your mom’s sweetest day ever!

Breakfast in bed. Give her day the perfect start. Make your mom’s fave breakfast and then give it a special twist! Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make sure your toast or pancakes reflect how much you really care for her. Get GL’s easiest-ever guide to breakfast in bed here.

Spa day. Pamper your mom! Bring out your fave nail polish and do mani- and pedicures together. Finish up the day with a facial mask and your fave chick flick. Click here for our favorite must-watch movies with mom.

Do a little extra cleaning. Sure, chores are never super fun, but for one day, make a point to clean the kitchen and family and living room for Mom. Volunteer to do the dishes so your mom can rest easy!

Let your mom know how much she means to you. This year, do more than sign a card. Write her a letter to her about how big a difference she’s made on your life. 

Take her to her favorite restaurant. Let your mom pick where to eat dinner or have lunch and then have Dad take the whole family. Pitch in with dad and your siblings (if you have ‘em) to pay for her meal.
Go for a mother-daughter walk. Ask your mom if she wants to go on an evening stroll with you at the end of the day. It's that quality time you spend together that will mean the most to her on her big day.
