Need to do some last minute shopping for your mom for Mother’s Day? Mother’s Day gift baskets are a creative, personal way to show your mom how much you care about her.
When you are putting together a gift basket for your mom, think about her interests and hobbies. There are many themes you can use to put together a gift basket. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Basket for Garden Lovers
Fill a garden basket with gardening tools, a new pair of gardening gloves, flower seeds, and a box of herbal tea.
Bath and Body Basket
For the mom who loves to be pampered, fill a basket full of bath salts, bubble bath, candles, soaps, massage oils, a massage roller, manicure and/or pedicure kit, moisturizing lotion, and a good book to read.
Basket for Coffee Lovers
A coffee basket can include a new coffee mug, gourmet coffee beans, coffee syrups, instant coffees, a Starbuck gift card, chocolate covered coffee beans, biscotti, and chocolate-covered pretzels.
Basket for Tea Lovers
Fill a tea gift basket full of different kinds of herbal teas and a pretty tea cup. Include a good inspirational book to read.
Basket for the Cooking or Baking Enthusiast
If your mom loves to cook or bake, put together a basket with a new cookbook, fun cooking gadgets, some new dish towels, and some new recipe cards.
Bed and Breakfast Gift Basket
Moms love baking with mixes to make cooking easier. For a breakfast themed basket, fill a basket with muffin mixes, jars of jam, instant coffee or hot cocoa mix, and a pretty coffee mug.
Movie Gift Basket
This basket is fun because after you give it to her you can suggest you then enjoy it with her! Fill a basket with a couple of your mom’s favorite DVD’s, microwave popcorn, and your mom’s favorite movie candy.
Scrapbooking Gift Basket
If your mom’s favorite hobby is scrapbooking, then put together a basket of scrapbooking idea books, paper punches, stickers, scrapbooking paper, and extra glue sticks.
Sundae Gift Basket
Who doesn’t love ice cream sundaes? Fill a gift basket with a new ice cream scooper, sundae syrups and toppings (sprinkles, chopped nuts), and maybe some pretty new sundae bowls.
Basket for the Puzzle Lover
Some moms love to do puzzles, puzzles of all kinds. If your mom loves puzzles, fill her gift basket with crossword puzzles, Suduko puzzles, word searches, and a jig saw puzzle.
