Once a year just doesn't seem like enough to honor and thank the mothers of the world, but since the official day is coming up, we thought we'd help you out with some great ideas to make this Mother's Day extra special. From breakfast in bed to home goods, to gardening and more, we've got you covered with perfect gifts for the modern mother.

Start Mother's Day off right by serving mom breakfast in bed on this beautiful tray by Australian-born, United States-based designer Peter White of Bywhite Designs. The smart design includes a built-in bud vase so you won't have to worry about one toppling over on the bed.

Colorful ceramic Vases

As the beautiful bouquet you brought her dwindles over the following week, she'll need these adorable Little Shirley Vases by Material Good to disperse the blooms.

The modern mother deserves a little pampering now and then, so she'll love this set of candlesticks from BoConcept to adorn the bathroom for a personal spa day. Not to mention they are just a beautiful gift in general.

For the mom with a green thumb, we think these plant label stakes by French designers JF Dingjian and Eloi Chafai of Normal Studio, are a huge improvement over the flimsy plastic variety and make a thoughtful gift for a gardening lover.

Speaking of gardening, a cut flower bouquet is all well and good, but for a bloom that keeps on giving, we think these cheerful ceramic Campy planters from Perch! are perfect for a potted plant gift.

yellow cups

Either as a companion to her new tea kettle or as a stand alone gift, we love these hand-crafted earthenware cups by Chicago-based Susan Dwyer. They've been individually dipped in yellow rubber, giving them a bit of grip and a burst of bright color.

Sometimes a busy mom needs a little more than tea to get through the day. Surprise her with this fancy Bodum Bean French Press and...

...this set of Color Dipped Mugs by Poketo. We think these primary colored porcelain beauts will go perfectly with the Bodum Bean French Press or make a great gift all on their own.

cashmere waffle weave throw blanket by Bryce & Co.

Every mom deserves a bit of luxury in her life. We love this super soft cashmere throw in a waffle weave. It's the perfect companion for a chilly morning or evening and looks beautiful draped on the couch or foot of the bed.
