Mother's Day: Gift Baskets for Her

Mother's Day is a time to celebrate and honor the incredible women who have shaped our lives with love and care. While finding the perfect gift can sometimes be a challenge, one option that never fails to impress is the classic gift basket. This Mother's Day, retailers should consider putting together curated gift baskets, especially focusing on themes like home decor and cooking, to offer moms a delightful and thoughtful surprise.

Double Duty Basket: Use a neutral basket set option that can be split and used for two different price point options. We chose the Nia Baskets and created a Home Decor Enthusiast basket and a Self-Care or Cozy basket. If you want to streamline sizes, we can suggest a single basket like the Dehlilah Basket. You can see this used in our basket made for Cooking Enthusiasts below.

The Home Decor + Cozy Up Gift Baskets

Home is where the heart is, and for many moms, decorating and enhancing their living spaces is a passion. A home decor gift basket curated with stylish and functional items can be a perfect way to indulge her creative side. Here are some ideas for what to include:

  • Scented Candles or Candle accessories: Choose candles with soothing fragrances like lavender or vanilla to help create a calming atmosphere in her home. Pair those candles with a cute accessory and it's decor ready!
  • Decorative Throws: Soft, luxurious throws or blankets can add both warmth and elegance to any living space. In basket one, we used the Mel Throw, its super soft, cozy and a neutral color. For our cozy basket, we used the soft Bea Muslin Throw.
  • Artisanal Home Accessories: Consider including handcrafted items such as pottery, wall art, or decorative vases that reflect her unique taste. For our large basket, we paired the Wren Arched Bookends with some home decor coffee table books. In the second, we used the Iiona Decorative Chain.
  • Inspiring Books: Select books on interior design, home organization, or DIY projects to inspire her next creative endeavor. These double as decor but are also inspirational!
  • Botanicals: Whether it's a small potted plant or a bouquet of fresh flowers, bringing a touch of nature indoors can brighten up her day. This is a great option that can be swapped for any of the above items. There are a variety of small sized planters available.

    Cooking Up Love

    For moms who find joy in the kitchen and love to whip up delicious meals for their families, a culinary-themed gift basket is sure to be a hit. Here are some ideas to fill her basket with:

    • High-Quality Towel: Include a beautiful woven or printed kitchen towel. This is a decorative but also functional option. Sets of towels could also be purchased here and used in different baskets. We chose the Set of 4 Colin Towels and featured the mustard one. 
    • Cooking Tools: Consider adding kitchen gadgets such as a stylish apron, a set of quality knives, or a beautiful cutting board. We used a set of hand carved serving utensils - the Louisa.
    • Recipe Books or Cards: Choose cookbooks featuring diverse cuisines, healthy recipes, or cooking techniques she's eager to explore. We chose to add a bit of sentimental value and added some vintage recipe cards. A recipe box is also another option. 
    • Sweet Treats or Fine Oils: Indulge her sweet tooth with a selection of gourmet chocolates, cookies, or other delectable desserts. Or for savory, add gourmet cooking oils.

    What makes gift baskets so special is the personal touch they convey. Retailers can go the extra mile by offering customizable options, allowing customers to tailor the contents of the basket to suit their mom's preferences perfectly. With their versatility and personal appeal, gift baskets truly embody the spirit of Mother's Day: celebrating the unique and cherished bond between a mother and her loved ones.
