Breakfast in bed is special for Mom, but it shouldn't be more than you can handle. Whether it's toast and jam or bacon and eggs, whatever you make will be appreciated.
Let Mom take a nice, long, uninterrupted bubble bath complete with soft music and fragrant, soothing bath oil.
Help Mom around the house on her special day so she doesn't have to do any housework. Kids can set the table before and wash the dishes after each meal. Picking up the toys around the house or sweeping the kitchen will make Mom happy.
Give Mom some uninterrupted time alone in the hammock or lounge chair to read her favorite book or magazine.
Buy Mom some movie tickets to her favorite movie theatre. Create a special card with the movie section pictures cut out and collaged together.
Pull out old family pictures of vacations, school events, holidays, family parties, etc. Place each one on a card or construction paper, thanking Mom for making a difference. Thank her for making that special Halloween costume for the school parade, or when she made you feel confident on your first day of school, or how she made that vacation to the beach so much fun. Place them around the house so she sees them throughout the day: one on her nightstand, on the bathroom mirror, on closet door, bedroom door, kitchen cabinets, the kitchen table, etc.
