The Perfect Mother's Day Gift Basket

May 8, 2008
Mother's Day celebrates the most important woman in all your life, the one that you owe your very existence to-your mother. There is no better way to tell her that you love her than to give her a Mother's Day gift basket that you personally designed with her in mind.

You could design an elaborate gift basket that will make your mother feel like a queen. This basket could contain a whole bath and body kit to make her feel pampered and special. You could include scented bubble bath, body wash, and body lotion to help make her skin feel young and soft. You might also consider including scented candles in the gift basket to help relax her as she soaks in her bubble bath. You could purchase a gift certificate to a local spa where your mother could receive a full day of beauty treatments and some well deserved relaxation. Including a nice bath robe and a comfortable pair of slippers would be an ideal way to round out your queen gift basket.

For the chef in the family, a cooking gift basket might be a good idea. You could purchase a variety of spices and seasonings that will enable your mother to experiment with all those recipes that she has always wanted to try. You could also include a set of new measuring cups and spoons to replace the set that your mother may have been using for years. You could finish off your cooking gift basket with a new set of cooking utensils. If you wish to spend a little more money, a few new pots and pans would probably also be appreciated.

A gardening gift basket may also be an idea for Mother's Day. You could include various garden tools such as a hand held shovel and hoe. You can also purchase inexpensive flower seeds that will bloom beautifully in few short months. You could include a pair of good gardening gloves o protect your mother's hands as well as a hat to protect her from the sun. A kneeling pad might add a nice finishing touch to your gardening gift basket.

Another idea for a Mother's Day gift basket if you have small children would be a grandmother's basket. This basket is especially nice if the grandchildren live in a location that is away from your mother. You can have your children as well as your nieces and nephews put anything into the basket that they want to. You may want to suggest homemade Mother's Day cards as well as anything else they may want to make. You might be surprised with how creative these little ones can be. You can also include new photographs of all the kids so Grandma can see how much they have grown. Not only will this gift basket thrill your mother, preparing it will allow you to spend quality time with the little people in your family.

These are just a few of the many types of gift baskets that you can make for your mother on Mother's Day. Putting in the time and the effort to make it yourself will make the basket more satisfying for both your mother and you
