Making a Mother's Day Gift Basket

May 6, 2010

Gift basket with green ribbon.My mother will be 75 in June, and it is hard to buy for her because she is content with the simple things in life so I decided to buy her a supply of body wash, shampoo, deodorant, air freshener,and also some sweets, etc. I put them all in a big gift bag and I have already given it to her. She was so excited. She appreciated it because she knows these things take a lot of her small income away. And if she sees something later that she would like, she will have money to buy it.

Sweetly thoughtful, and she knows that you pay attention to her favorites so that you get the right things for her. That is so important. When we ladies age, we do tend to want the same old familiar things, kinda like being "set in our ways" maybe. No matter how simple you might think it is, that's what we like and what we'll be more apt
to use. I speak with the voice of experience as I'll be 76 next birthday.

That gift bag or gift basket is usually the most thoughtful gift...lots of little things that we like. If you can...spend at least part of the day with her. Time spent with my children is the most precious gift they can give to me now. I'm in a wheelchair a lot, and I do love window-shopping with them. just to see what they like. So many new things that I've never even seen before. I enjoy hearing what they have to say about those things.


Happy Mother's Day to you and to your Mom. Julia in Boca Raton, FL

Here is a nice way to pamper that tea lover in your life. The best part is it won't cost you very much, but will be very appreciated. This is a thrifty gift and, best of all, is in the theme of reuse, recycle, repurpose.

I sell candles, votives and body products and would like to make up some baskets for Mother's Day, birthdays, etc. Can someone give me ideas, as to what to put in a basket? Do you only use baskets and where do you get them? Do you wrap them in cellophane? I have never done this before, but would like to try my hand at it.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Mary- I'm making a coffee-themed basket for my MIL for Mother's Day. I bought a nice woven basket from the dollar store and some chocolate covered mints there also, some coffee-shop coffee, a coffee cup with her name on it from the second hand store (stroke of luck there, I know) and am making some biscotti also. I'll shred paper bags in my shredder for the paper base, arrange my items, cover with the cellophane shrink wrap, blow dry it, and then tie with a raffia bow.


I thought this would make a nice gift for someone who has everything and is a coffee lover. It would be nice in a tea theme, also. the possibilities are endless. Use your creativity and people you love will love it!

My son just bought and made me up a mother's day basket at a discount store, (he is young, and doesn't have much $). He put two different kids of lotions in it, a body wash, a body scrub, a body spritz spray, a candle, 2 different colors of coordnating bath sponges, a picture frame, with "mom" across the top, that they are going to put a picture of my 3 kids in it, when my daughter comes home from college. All things are in my favorite color of pink, and the same coordnating sent of "Sweet Pea". I loved it, he put it all in a cute little reusable basket. Brownie points to my 14 year old son!!!

Give mom her gift in a lovely, lacy basket pretty enough to be a gift itself. This is a page about Victorian Mother's Day gift basket.
