Showing your Mom Just How Much you Care

By: Anne Harvester

Your mother has done a lot to make sure that your life was great as you were a child growing up. Now that Mother's Day is just around the corner is the time to remember Mom with a special Mother's Day gift to show that you care.
Mother's Day gift baskets make a fantastic present for your mother because they can be personalized to include the things that she especially enjoys. Perhaps your mother could use a day at the spa. Why not give her that pleasure in the comfort of her own home, with a gift basket focused on a spa theme. You could include such items as fancy bath soaps and gels, as well as moisturizers, massage oils, bathing sponges and more for her enjoyment.
If Mom is into sports, a sports-themed basket is something that she will enjoy. Let's say that she loves to golf.

You could include a new attractive visor, some golfing gloves, golf balls and tees, and a great pair of sunglasses along with wonderfully scented sunscreen in a basket focused on a golfing theme. Because the gifts in the basket center around one of your mother's favorite hobbies, this will help to show her that you took the time to think about what she will enjoy and then put them all together in a beautiful basket.
Your mother would definitely appreciate a gift basket that featured gourmet foods and cooking items if she is a foodie, or just likes to eat delicious foods. Beautiful tins of caviar, anchovies, and thin water crackers, along with jars of Kalamata olives and Nicoise olives will make her mouth water. Adding a great bottle of Merlot or Cabernet Sauvingon would make a spectacular focus to this type of gift basket with a Mediterranean foods theme.
Maybe your mother is a stir-fry lover. Why not include all of the wonderful components to a super Pad Thai? You could include lovely packages of rice noodles, peanuts, as well as some of the seasonings like ginger, and spicy oils, including toasted sesame oil, which will bring the meal to life. The addition of napkins and chop sticks, even some lovely decorative bowls in which to serve the food, could all be in keeping with a Thai-themed gift basket, one that your mother is sure to love.
If Mom likes to cook, she can always use some interesting kitchen gadgets. A citrus zester with a comfortable handle and sharp blades is always popular. A new garlic press comes in handy, as does a screwy louie to remove lids from jars with ease. Decorative hot pads and kitchen towels would set this basket off in style, and show your mother that you care.
