How to Make the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift Basket For Every Mom Out There

If there’s one thing that every mom wants to see and feel on Mother’s Day, it’s a gesture of love and appreciation from her nearest and dearest. Nothing shows that kind of effort more than a homemade gift basket. Here’s how to make the perfect Mother’s Day gift basket for every mom out there.

First - the Basics:

When it comes to making a gift basket, the basics are pretty simple. All you need is:

  • The basket
  • Some shredded paper
  • Cellophane
  • Ribbon

From there, you prep it and get ready to fill it with goodies. Let’s dive in:

The Homebody Mom

For the mom that likes to stay in and get cozy, build a gift basket that will help her create the ultimate night in. This can include:

  • Movies: is there a particular genre that she loves or a movie that she’s dying to see? Get a DVD that you know she’ll love or that you can watch together.
  • Comfy clothes: Get a warm fleece robe, a blanket, or a pair of cute and comfortable slippers.
  • Night-in snacks: Opt for some delicious and healthy snacks like popcorn, trail mix, or some hummus and veggies.
  • Ambiance: Set the tone with some fragrant potpourri or a beautiful candle with her favorite scent.

The Foodie Mom

Consider her favorites and create a themed basket accordingly.

  • Sweets: If she has a sweet tooth, make a basket with her favorite treats. This can include chocolates, trail mix, gummy candy, and more.   
  • International: If she likes to experience new cultures and flavors, make an international basket with some unconventional treats. The World Market has some great options here, including Spanish tortas, a world traveler spice set, and more.
  • Healthy: When mom wants to keep it clean, make a greens-based gift basket and include things like fresh-pressed juice, some healthy snack bars, and a great raw honey.
  • Comfort food: Alternatively, if she loves the warm feeling of a great comfort food, make a basket with some of her go-to’s.
