Gift Baskets for Mothers Day

By: Anne Harvester

Mother's Day is coming up very soon, and you know it. You have been puzzling for several weeks about what you could possibly give your mother, the woman who has everything. This is a dilemma that faces many devoted children when it comes to this holiday, but that challenge can turn into a triumph when you consider gift baskets for Mother's Day. Why gift baskets, you may wonder? Mother's Day gift baskets can very easily be customized to your specific mother's wants and desires, so that this year your special gift will really impress her and remind her just how much you care about making her happy.
The best way to start when you are thinking of putting together a Mother's Day gift is to take a look around your mother's house or, better yet, in her photo albums. Here you will find a wealth of clues as to what is important to her.

You might find items or pictures focused on a hobby that your mother enjoys, for example. These hobbies can then easily become a theme for wonderful personalized mother's day gifts.
Pictures or souvenirs from happy family holidays spent out of town can also be a starting point for a great gift basket. If you were fortunate, perhaps your family got to travel to the Mediterranean for a holiday when you were growing up. Items centered on the Mediterranean could make wonderful gifts in a sunny Mediterranean-themed gift basket. You could include some foods from the area, such as several delicious varieties of olives for which the different regions are famous. Kalamata, Nicoise, Nyons, and Gaeta are just a few salty, oily olives that come from Europe, and several jars of these tucked into a basket would make your mother very happy. You could also include a bottle of great wine from one of the regions in the Mediterranean, or focus on a grape for which a particular region is famous, such as Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. With the inclusion of a small flag from her favorite European country and postcards from the area, Mom would be thrilled to open this unique and thoughtful gift from you.
If your mother likes to garden, you could use this hobby as the focus of a delightful gift basket for her. Every gardener can use some new hand tools, including a trowel and a dirt scratcher, as well as a weeding tool. A new sharp pair of hand pruners always comes in handy. Sunglasses and fragrant sunscreen are always welcome, and maybe some knee pads so that she can weed in comfort. Several glorious seed packages featuring unusual varieties, and a good garden journal would make a memorable gift for your mother this year.
