Forget flowers, jewelry or chocolate; what actor Ashton Kutcher had in store for his mom for Mother’s Day takes the cake.
In honor of the upcoming holiday, Kutcher decided to remodel his mom’s basement in Homestead, Iowa.
Kutcher filmed the process for Houzz, an online platform for home remodeling and design ideas that Kutcher is invested in.
“It’s my way of saying thank you to my mom,” Kutcher says in a video for the website.

Kutcher enlists the help of his stepdad, Mark, who he said he built the house with when he was 13 years old.
“The one thing that has eternally bonded my stepdad and I is that my stepdad loves my mom as much as I do,” Kutcher said. “When you’re the oldest son, and your parents have gone through a divorce, you’re always mistrustful of any other guy. But Mark stepped in and a lot of ways was there for me in ways my dad couldn’t be there for me. I’m one of those people in this world who’s lucky enough to have two dads. I’m just a blessed person to have that much love in my life.”
After the 27-day renovation, Kutcher reveals the surprise to his mom.
