Mother’s Day Gift Basket Ideas
Mother’s Day Basket Ideas for Every Mom:
For the Mom with a Sweet Tooth
If we are what we eat, then your mom must be sweet. Cater to her cravings with a Mother’s day gift basket full of chocolate. Baskets that include chocolate squares, chocolate-covered pretzels, cookies, and truffles make an indulgent present she’ll find irresistible.
For the Gourmet Mom
She has a taste for the finer things in life, so get Mom a gourmet food gift basket that meets her high standards. If she likes her food on the sweeter side, look for a fruit gift basket — a colorful, classic Mother’s Day gift. If she prefers savory snacks, look for a basket that includes meats, olives, cheese, and crackers. If she likes to do the cooking herself, make your own gift basket: Just take a regular basket and fill it with a few of her favorite ingredients and a few handy kitchen gadgets.
For the Mom Who Needs to Relax
Her kids keep her busy, and she could use a afternoon to herself. Pamper Mom with a spa gift basket full of body lotions, bath gels, bath mitts, scented candles, and even some herbal teas. Make sure to choose one in a fragrance she likes; lavender, vanilla, and citrus scents are popular. If she’s not into bubble baths, put together a Mother’s Day gift basket that lets her relax in another way. If she’d rather have an evening in, wrap up microwave popcorn, sodas, theater-size candy boxes, and a few of her favorite movies on DVD in a tall popcorn bucket.
For the First-Time Mom
If it’s her first Mother’s Day, or if she is still expecting her first baby, get her a Mother’s Day gift basket with baby gear. Look for one that has items she’s sure to need while she has a newborn, like extra outfits for her little one, a baby blanket, or baby bath products that she’ll use every day.
