Showing your Mom She is Number One

By: Anne Harvester

Mother's Day is coming up soon, and so too is your anxiety level beginning to rise. It can sometimes be hard to come up with just the right gift for your mother, but there is an easy way to show your mother that she is number one in your book: present her with a lovely Mother's Day gift which could include Mother's Day gift baskets.
Mother's Day gifts show your mother that you care if you take the time to personalize them. Items that can be personalized include the choice of basket, gift items including food and non-food luxuries, themes that you might follow to create a cohesive basket, and the final touch of wrappings and ribbons that all combine to make a memorable occasion for your mother.
For any mother, a gourmet treat is always appreciated. If she likes to cook, why not include several food treats that she enjoys.

They could be sweet or savory, depending on her likes. Do dark chocolate and candies send her? This is the time to focus on that aspect of her preferences. Is she a caviar and champagne lover? Both items could be the focus of a gourmet gift basket. If she likes to travel or enjoys reading travel books, then you could select foods from a particular country or region. You could also include a variety of small specialty cooking utensils, a colorful dishtowel or hot pad, and a cookbook to complete the gift basket.
If you want to treat your mother to a day of luxury, you will not go wrong with a basket filled with spa treatments. Gifts such as scented soaps and gels, perfumes, bath sponges and facials will make her feel pampered, and she can carry them to and from the bathroom in her new basket.
Speaking of baskets, the basket itself makes a beautiful and long-lasting gift. You have a multitude of choices ranging from wicker, to reed, to colorful plastics. Most baskets are crafted by hand, and they show an attention to detail that your mother will enjoy for days to come.
The way you present the basket will make a big impression on your mother as well. A gift basket should be so beautifully wrapped that she almost will not want to open it. You can achieve opulent effects depending on the kind of wrap you use, the ribbons and bows you select, as well as the gift card that goes with the gift. Your mother's favorite color is a great choice to use in wrapping materials. Clear plastic wraps come in a wide range of colors, and are lovely to look through, yet show all of the wonderful gifts inside the basket at the same time.
