Liz, it's Mother's Day gifts and breakfast in bed!

Liz Westwood from UK on May 08, 2021:

This is a great list of ideas. When we had children at home, I always appreciated breakfast in bed. Mother's Day in the UK is out of synch with you. We celebrate in March. Mother's Day traditionally breaks up Lent, a few weeks before Easter.

Ravi Rajan from Mumbai on May 08, 2021:

Lovely options Linda.Each of the options will make the day quite special for her. In fact I love the "breakfast in bed" option. That is one of the best gifts I can give to my mother.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on May 08, 2021:
