Mother’s Day Gift Basket Ideas

Mothers show love by sharing their gifts, whether it is cooking a homemade meal for family, making a home feel welcome to loved ones,  or entertaining friends. To celebrate the important women in my life, I enjoy creating personalized gift baskets for them. It’s the best feeling to make someone I adore feel special and appreciated.

With Mother’s Day around the corner, I have rounded up some popular Mother’s Day gift basket ideas. But first, I am sharing my tips to put together an amazing gift basket. Plus, the formula I use!


How to Create Amazing Gift Baskets

When planning any gift basket, first determine the theme to provide direction in choosing the contents. The theme can be based on the gift recipient’s interests or the occasion. For example, the mom who loves to cook or Mother’s Day.

Next, choose items that appeal to the form of art and the function of purpose! This ensures that gifts will either be well loved and or used often. In addition, I like to personalize the basket with the gift recipient’s favorite snack, flowers, or candle.

Of course, I love supporting makers, artists and antique dealers by purchasing handmade, artisan and vintage goods!

Then, select a container as the base. However, think outside the box, because the container can be a gift in itself! For instance, use a serving tray, wicker basket, decorative bowl, tote bag, wooden crate, or garden planter.

Then, arrange the items in the basket from tallest to shortest. To add height to the basket, use filler like crinkle paper or crumpled Kraft paper. Next, wrap the basket in cheesecloth for a more eco-friendly option than cellophane. Lastly, tie a bow with jute, linen, cotton, or leather.
