4 Basic Mothers Day Gift Baskets - Theme Ideas for Women's Gifts

Updated on July 2, 2016

Mother's Day Gift Basket Ideas

Need some Mother’s Day gift ideas? How about themed baskets that hold some of her favorite things? You could really give your Mother's Day offering a personal touch by making your own gift basket, starting with a basket or bucket, deciding on a theme, and running around to fill it up. However, you could really make it easy on yourself and purchase pre-made gift baskets that Mom or any other special lady in your life is sure to love.

1. Flowers and Chocolates

Ah, of course, the traditional flowers and chocolates. Don’t knock this gift basket idea. While simple, these items make a great gift for any occasion.

Flowers and chocolates are something a mother would rarely spend money on for herself, thus making them a perfect gift for her. Flowers are an excellent way to start filling a gift basket for Mother's Day.

GiftsnIdeas has a variety of baskets with flowers brimming over—carnations, daisies, and a striking one with all yellow flowers. The sunshine basket they call it!

Chocolate choices abound on this site, too. The Godiva chocolate collection particularly catches my eye—and engages my taste buds! And if chocolate isn't Mom's thing, how about a candy bouquet? Or a beautiful combination of flowers and fruit. The possibilities are great.

2. Food and Drink Theme

A basket filled with favorite food and drink items is always a good gift. GiftsnIdeas has some of the best-looking food baskets I have seen.

From snack baskets to champagne and caviar baskets (yes, I’m serious!), they have a wide selection. This site is definitely worth checking out for all kinds of gift baskets.

If the lady likes wine, there are assortments of wines paired with fruit, cheese and crackers, or gourmet foods. Baskets with coffee and tea themes are another choice. Food baskets are definitely a way to go.

CranberryCorners gift baskets include a basket for diabetics with sugar free and gourmet foods. Their site is worth checking out, too, for many more gift basket ideas.

3. Bath and Spa Theme

Many women enjoy pampering themselves with a relaxing bath once in a while. Bath and spa baskets are a fabulous way to pamper that special mother in your life.

Luxurious products and unique bath scents such as vanilla melon give the ultimate spa experience, especially when the basket also contains some decadent treats such as Swiss Truffles, flavored teas, and delightful shortbread cookies.

GiftsnIdeas (this is a great site!) offers lots of spa therapy relaxation gift baskets to choose from, with all the bath time essentials Mom will need for her own little spa get-away.

4. Gardening Theme

Mother’s Day and spring coincide, so what better time to give gardening gifts? A garden themed basket is sure to please the mother who enjoys gardening. Boodles of Baskets has a couple of neat options.

How about a huge mug planter filled with tea and snacks, along with garden themed bath supplies and heavy-duty lotion for those gardener hands?

Another adorable option is having similar items all stuffed in a watering can. Boodles of Baskets if a fun site with oodles of gift baskets from which to choose!

      Kathryn, Yeah, I guess I got kind of carried away on the Mother's Day hubs. :-) That's neat about the store where you work. I agree. Even if a person doesn't buy a pre-made gift basket, it can give ideas! Thanks for the valuable input!

      This is another great article for Mother's Day! I love gift baskets, and I like that you provided the ideas, a few good sites, and pretty photos.

      I work at a store, and one thing I think is cool is that my manager put together Mother's Day gift bags herself, using a creative array of baskets and gift boxes that we sell, and stuffed with all sorts of goodies, in different themes. It is set up at the front of the store, surrounded by potted plants. Many stores do this, and anyone who wants to go out shopping for a gift may find it handy to walk into the store of their choice and find pre-made baskets to order. If nothing else, checking them out could give lots of good ideas!

      Thank you for sharing another fantastic article with us. Mother's Day is only a few days away now!

      Some great gift ideas here for Mother's Day. It may inspire some people to think of other gift combinations such as suggested here. If my mother were still alive, I could not go wrong with the flowers and chocolates.

      Of course I had to read this as I had a gift basket business for 15 years and I was always inventing the wheel...Unfortunately the business...the wave had crested. These are very cute and appropriate for Mother's day.
