Help me do something thoughtful for my mom on mother's day.

I'm 24 and living with my mom, and I want to do something meaningful for mother's day. I've put my mom through hell this year with my depression. I'm out of depression now. During this time she did everything I would ever want a mother to do, and showed unconditional love.
I don't want to do something big and fancy, nor do I want something sentimental and sappy.
How do I say thank you and I'm sorry all at once on mother's day and not be sappy about it?
Neither my mom nor me enjoy sentimentality.
Would a really thoughtful gift do the trick? My mom loves plants/flowers, wind chimes and other whimsical decorations (tasteful ones), she reads a lot and she sings in a couple choirs. She doesn't like things like breakfast in bed because it breaks up her normal morning routine. I'm sure she would like me to cook a lovely dinner though.
Can anyone help me?
