A Mother's Day Gift Basket May Be the Perfect Answer For You

As we and our moms get older, it can become difficult to choose a Mothers Day gift that seems to fit well with where our mothers are in life, especially if they are living in a retirement community or nursing home. In those situations, mom doesn't need a lot and there isn't much space for her to put anything very large.

That's one of the reasons that a basket, filled with things you know your mother likes, is a good idea. Great idea, actually. She has a place to store the contents and when they're gone, she can use the basket or container to keep something else in. It's a win/win situation.

My mother passed away, it will be three years ago this May 17th. We often brought her gifts in things that she could use to store other items. She very much enjoyed that we took the trouble to get her something personal, something that she considered a treat. The only downside was that she used every one of those containers and we had to deal with them when moving her things. That's not really bad though because we know they meant something to her and they were handy for her.

Okay, before I go getting maudlin, let's get back to these gifts for your mom and stop talking about mine! Besides, your mom may still be young and kicking up her heels.

As far as using Amazon to order your Mother's Day gifts, I think it's a terrific idea for two reasons. First of all, it's incredibly convenient. Secondly, if you do it now, you won't forget and end up scrambling to find something from whatever is left at the florist or store.

For those reasons, I've sought out a few items that I thought were really nice for you to consider for your mother this year.

Flower Power

This Mother's Day gift basket is nine pounds of fun for mothers who enjoying gardening. It includes a beautiful, sentimental book of inspirational thoughts and touching moments, as well as some practical items and treats. Your mother will enjoy:

  • Gardening gloves
  • Bristle fingernail brush
  • 2 packages of seeds
  • Garden stepping stone
  • Coffee mug with sunflower pattern
  • Shortbread cookies
  • Peppermint scented votive candle
  • Teas - Lemon and Green Tea Almond Roca
  • .8 oz of creamy Camembert cheese spread
  • Pimento stuffed olives
  • Cracked pepper crackers
  • Fabric lined hamper with handles
  • Book of Bliss
  • Thoughts to Make You Smile

Mom will have everything she needs for a good day of gardening, cleaning up then relaxing with a hot cup of tea, a snack and a good read.

Natural Skin Care

Mom will appreciate this lovely spa type of gift. Filled with healing ginger, these gels, lotions and bath salts stimulate the skin back to glowing health.

The basket is hand woven, 9 5/8" diameter by 8 1/2" high.

Mama Mia!

Moms always like to feed us, so give her a helping hand with this unique and practical gift. It's a gorgeous stainless steel colander filled with all the fixings of an authentic Italian meal.

Dinner consists of pasta with red sauce grissini with dipping oil. Mmm, good! Save room for dessert because it's included, too. You and your mom will love the delicious biscotti!

Warning:  You mother will be in her glory cooking for you and will likely want to feed you more often. :)

Smellicious Gift Idea

How about a pretty, moss green floral jacquard gift box filled with items that smell beautiful? The 7 3/4" by 6 1/2" by 4 1/4" box is lined with a floral print and the outside feels like suede. Your mum is going to hang onto this keepsake for a long time to come. Every time she looks at it, she'll think of you.

Items included in the box:

Give your mother the gift of spring this year in this sunny yellow maize planter with plastic liner. This professionally assembled arrangement is going to delight the senses and touch the heart.

While the 10" by 14" by 10" gift basket is useful and beautiful, let's not forget to mention that it is full to the brim and beyond with a ton of different, wonderful things. Just look at what you get!

  • Music CD about a mother's love, devotion and caring, titled Mamma
  • Floral patterned gardening gloves

The basket is finished off to look special, with co-ordinated shreds, ribbon and bow. The whole thing is covered with a clear outer wrap, letting mom get a sneak peak at what awaits her inside.

Chocolate and Spa Go Together So Well

I've left the best for last. What could be better or more luxurious feeling than spa and chocolate? I'm told that the answer is, "NOTHING!"

The included English Rose soap, bath gel and lotion will keep mom's skin hydrated, smooth as silk and feeling very pampered.

To feed her sweet tooth, this attractive basket also holds an assortment of scrumptious snacks, like heavenly good chocolate cookies and truffles, a Ghirardelli chocolate bar and other creamy, delicious chocolatey treats. If mother feels like something different, she can enjoy the biscotti, crunchy caramel popcorn or cheese swirls.

If you have a generous budget, please do consider treating your mother to this decadently wonderful gift basket. She'll feel spoiled beyond belief.
