Mother’s Day is approaching fast and I know many of you haven’t even started shopping. Instead of fretting about not buying a card, take the opportunity to do something that your wife will enjoy. Here are a few ideas.

Breakfast in bed

This one can be tricky because some moms may not be able to enjoy breakfast in bed because she’s worried about spilling food on the sheets or about the mess that you and the kids have made in the kitchen. But if you reassure her that you have everything under control, a lovely breakfast of waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt, and International Delight’s Iced Coffee will be the perfect start to the day.

The Gift of Nothing

I’ve polled moms on Twitter and Facebook and they told me that the one gift that they’d love for Mother’s Day is a few hours of relaxation. You can be a hero by getting your wife a plush robe and allowing her to unwind in a hot bath with her favorite bath products.  Let her to spend the day doing absolutely nothing or give her some uninterrupted time to do some of her favorite activities. It will be your job to keep the kids occupied.

An Act of Service

Remember all of those projects you’ve been meaning to tackle around the house. Mother’s Day weekend is the perfect time to get those things done. Your wife will appreciate your finally crossing items off of the “Honey Do” List.

To get you started, I’d like to offer one reader a chance to win 5 half gallon containers of International Delight’s Iced Coffee. To enter the contest, answer the following question in the comments section:
