1. Homemade Breakfast

A forever classic, and for good reason. Mums just love being spoiled with a home cooked breakfast on Mother’s Day. You could set the table with pretty decor such as napkins in rings, flowers as the centrepiece, and candles. You could also get creative and craft your own napkin rings. Whip up her favourite breakfast. Bacon and eggs? Waffles and fruit? Coffee and eggs benedict? A homemade breakfast is a great way to involve the kids and is the perfect DIY experience gift that will make her feel loved and appreciated.

Candles are easy and quick to make once you have all the supplies and they’re a great gift that you can customise to match your mum’s preferences. There are plenty of tutorials that you can find online to craft a sweet candle that will have her thinking of you each time she lights it. Choose the fragrance and colour that she likes and you can even create your own label to stick on the front.
