Motherâ€™s Day gift baskets are a great gift to give to all of the
mothers that you know. Whether someone is a brand-new mom or a
grandmother, Motherâ€™s Day is the one day a year to show her just how
really special she is. Here are some terrific ideas for what to put into
a Motherâ€™s Day gift basket!
For the Wine Connoisseur: Tuck mom's favorite type of
wine into the Motherâ€™s Day gift basket plus a kind that she's always
wanted to try. Do some research about the wine and find yummy foods to
pair with it. In general, artisan cheeses, fresh preserves and gourmet
crackers go wonderfully with most wines. Add these foods to the gift
basket along with a set of cheese spreaders and bottle opener.
For the Chocolate Lover: Know a mom with a weakness
for chocolate? Give her a decadent chocolate Motherâ€™s Day basket for all
of her hard work! Use a variety of her favorite gourmet chocolates plus
some unusual choices that she has never tried before. Truffles,
chocolate covered pretzels, almond clusters and chocolates with fruit
fillings are all great choices!
For the Beach Mom: This is a great Motherâ€™s Day gift
basket for any mom who loves to go to the beach! Fill up the basket with
sunscreen, a new pair of sunglasses, snacks, a collection of magazines
and a big, fluffy beach towel. Purchase a bag of shells from a craft
store and hot glue them in a pattern on the outside of the basket. If
the beach or pool she likes to go to requires a membership or pass,
consider splurging on that too!
For the Green Thumb Mom: For this Motherâ€™s Day gift
basket, fill it with various gardening tools and supplies that she can
use in her garden - gardening gloves, pruning shears, hand shovels and
potting soil. Taking care of a garden isn't just about the plants! Tuck
in some insect repellent, a travel mug for tea, a knee pad or a
wide-brimmed hat to keep out the sun. Other great garden-related items
to put into her Motherâ€™s day basket are an outdoor thermometer,
gardening books and a watering can.
For the Film Buff: This gift basket idea is great for
a mom who loves movies but canâ€™t always find the time to watch them.
Put two movie tickets in the gift basket for her and a guest to use and a
free night of babysitting gift certificate. This is a thoughtful gift
that gives mom a night out to enjoy herself. Additional ideas are to
purchase copies of her favorite movies on DVD or sign her up for a movie
For any Mom: Everyone needs some pampering once in a
while. Fill a gift basket with all the relaxation essentials: bubble
bath, loofah, scented shower gel, a handmade soap, her favorite body
lotion, nail polish, luxurious facial cream and an eye mask. Scatter in
some scented candles, various tea bags, a book and a CD of calm,
instrumental music into this Mother's Day gift basket and she'll be all
set to put her feet up and relax.
