Breakfast in bed is a Mother's Day tradition, and for good reason. How many mornings has mom made breakfast for you? Mother's Day is of course a day to fete your mom and this year, why not up the Mother's Day breakfast in bed tradition and make it a lazy morning that's full of luxurious food, drinks, and gifts.

Start Mother's Day by spoiling mom with a super soft, cozy, weighted blanket, a cup of the beverage of her choice (you can never go wrong with iced coffee or an espresso martini) and whimsical wildflowers the kids or grandkids just placed in a vintage vase that gives off small French country inn vibes.

Light a candle that smells like the Saturday mornings of her childhood and will have her reminiscing about her favorite cartoons. Meanwhile in the kitchen, the kids can try flipping pancakes or baking a pie or tart with organic California-grown fruit.

Once the breakfast of her choice—raspberry pancakes, soft boiled egg on toast, that tart or maybe a parfait is ready, serve it in gorgeous stoneware bowls and platters and bring it to her on a sturdy, roomy, yet classic tray. Then head back to the kitchen to clean up while mom gets to nosh and decide how she wants to spend the rest of the day.

We've got everything here that you need to make mom swoon over breakfast and make it an extra special Mother's Day, one she'll never forget.
