Treat your mum this Mother;s Day Mother's Day is just around the corner, so it's time to get thinking of ideas to let your mum (or maybe your little one's mum) know how special she is on this all-important day. Whilst chocolate and flowers make great gifts, she'll probably like nothing more than putting her feet up and being waited upon for the day. Breakfast in bed is a must for all mums this Mother's Day, so kick start the day in style with proper coffee from the coffee machine and slices of toast - even better if you've made the bread yourself! Alternatively, why not whizz up a tasty and nutritious fruit smoothie? Or, for a hearty feast, dig out your favourite non-stick frying pans and rustle up a fluffy cheese and mushroom omelette with French toast - delicious!
