To help you plan your Mother's Day celebration, the discount experts at Dollar General are offering some great ideas:

Breakfast in bed

Pamper mom with breakfast in bed, complete with delicious pancakes, a good book or magazine and hot coffee. She’ll love the opportunity to relax and enjoy her morning without the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Grow something together

Sometimes the best gift is an afternoon spent together. Pick out a planter Mom will love, along with seeds, soil and gardening tools. Spend the afternoon creating something that will grow all season long and remind Mom of her time spent with you.

Bake and make

Mom might love her kitchen just the way it is, but you can add a splash of color and flair with some inexpensive additions from a discount retailer, such as Dollar General. Update Mom’s kitchen with new accessories, like a kitchen towel or oven mitt, or even a new appliance like a coffee maker or mixer. Complete your kitchen additions with a baking mix for cookies or brownies, and spend time with Mom creating something yummy together.
