When Mother’s Day arrives, many moms enjoy the opportunity to spend time with their family. After all, mothers are usually the ones busy in the kitchen during most other holidays; however, on this one special day, set aside to celebrate mom, it is especially important to make sure she is able to relax and not be the one taking care of the family. For most people, a wonderful Mother’s Day breakfast is the perfect way to start the day. Of course, you could make breakfast at home, but taking mom out to a delicious Mother’s Day breakfast is a fun way to help her get her day started in a very special way.

Many restaurants put on a gorgeous Mother’s Day brunch offering a wide selection of breakfast and lunch dishes, as well as champagne, flowers and many scrumptious desserts. When you want to treat your mother to a truly remarkable and relaxing breakfast, be sure to consider one of the many Mother’s Day breakfast or brunch opportunities. It is usually best to call several weeks before Mother’s Day in order to ensure you are able to get a reservation at the restaurant of your choice. Seatings for some of the best Mother’s Day breakfast and brunch spots fill up fast, especially if you have a preferred seating time.

Every restaurant will have their own unique twist on a Mother’s Day Brunch, so consider the venue when making your reservations. Some offer luxurious surroundings complete with music, while others are a little more low-key and have a more basic atmosphere for their Mother’s Day Brunch. The type of establishment will determine the ambiance and, of course, price, for your Mother’s Day breakfast or brunch.

Another important factor when making reservations for your Mother’s Day brunch will be whether the restaurant you choose is kid-friendly. Some establishments might cater more towards a sophisticated and adult clientele. These brunch locations might not be the best option if you have small children in your party.

Also, many people will be ordering flowers, so conscientious children need to place their orders now.  Gift offerings at department stores will soon be picked over, leaving only those clichéd gifts of perfume and lockets behind.  This Mother’s Day, a different kind of gift will make a wonderful surprise.  Maybe she’d love a weekend trip or a gift certificate to a spa.  Mothers spend a lot of time spoiling their children, so they’ll appreciate getting spoiled in return.

Mothers are also competitive, so they hate admitting that their gift is foot powder from drug store.  Frankly, it’s embarrassing to be the mom on the block who got the worst gift. Yes, Mother’s Day is about family togetherness, but a nice gift for Mom makes things better.

Turn around twice and Mother’s Day will be here.  Smart children will make their plans now, so they won’t come up short on May 12th.

Mother’s Day 2013 is on May 12th, and time to prepare for it is growing short.
