Pamper mom from the moment she wakes up.

This Mother's Day, if you want to find a way to really make the mom in your life feel pampered from the moment she wakes up, pull a classic move and treat her to breakfast in bed. There's nothing like waking up to the smell of warm pancakes, hot bacon, strong coffee—or whatever it is that she craves—carried in on a tray for her to enjoy in luxury, as you duck back out to clean up the kitchen. No matter what you get up to the rest of the day, if you start off by pampering her from the moment she gets up, you'll make your mom feel like the queen she is—which is the goal, after all.

Of all the Mother's Day gifts you could get her, the gift of your time and thoughtfulness will be the best. (Check out our cheeky printable "do not disturb" door hangers and certificates for a funny addition to the meal!) And the best part? The meal doesn't need to be complicated to be impressive. These recipes cover any type of breakfast you're hoping to make. Try the jasmine madeleines or raspberry almond scones for a sweet start. If you'd prefer to make something on the savory side, try whipping up the Caprese eggs Benedict or bacon and leek quiche for a protein-packed start to the day. Even a simple fresh yogurt with poached fruit can be turned into an absolutely elegant meal.

Whatever you decide to make, you'll both be ready to go and tackle the other Mother's Day activities you have planned after a delicious breakfast-in-bed.
