What is your idea of the perfect Mother’s Day? Without a doubt, mine is sleeping in and enjoying a meal I don’t have to cook or clean up! This Mother’s Day let’s take breakfast in bed to a whole new level and surprise mom with a DIY Farmhouse Brunch Gift Basket.
This gift basket loaded with farm-fresh eggs, a crusty loaf of bread, a bottle of bubbly, flowers, and her favorite magazines will guarantee mom can savor every moment of pampering on her special day.
If I’m being completely honest Mother’s Day is a strange holiday and it’s a particularly challenging one to celebrate at our house. While I am the resident party planner and ultimate gift giver, my husband is not. Granted he has lots of other talents and gifts that make him extraordinary, but making plans, let alone executing any type of celebration gives him anxiety.
After becoming a mom I had high hopes and expectations for what Mother’s Day would look like. After a few disappointing Sunday mornings year after year, I realized that if I wanted Mother’s Day to come with all the bells and whistles I had to specifically ask for it or execute it myself.
That’s when I realized I wasn’t the only mom who felt this way! After talking with many of my friends I realized they too often felt like Mother’s Day was more stressful than it was joyful. So, I decided to celebrate my mom friends with beautiful gift baskets full of things to make their day extra special.

How to Make a Brunch Gift Basket for Mother’s Day
Start with a cute wire basket that can be reused in the kitchen. I used a pretty wire basket and added new dish towels to create the base layer of the basket.
Next, add all the key ingredients you will need to make mom an extra special breakfast or brunch in bed. Our gift basket includes farm-fresh eggs, a crusty loaf of bread, fresh fruit, homemade strawberry jam, and a bottle of bubbly.
Include her favorite magazines or a new book so she can enjoy a quiet morning to herself. This way she can catch up on her favorite magazines while waiting to enjoy her special breakfast in bed.
Place the basket, along with fresh flowers on a serving tray. You could even include our free printable Mother’s Day room service order form to customize her breakfast order.
Don’t forget to include a heartfelt letter with words of encouragement, memories, or what you love most about mom.
But, the most important thing about preparing a special Mother’s Day Farmhouse Brunch Gift Basket is that mom doesn’t have to do any of the cooking and cleaning on her special day! Have the kids pitch in and help cook and clean so that mom can truly relax, unwind and enjoy her special day!
