DIY Mothers Day Gift Baskets

By Leslie Pleasants

There is no better way to show your love and appreciation on Mothers Day then giving your mom or a mom a gift basket.  Gift baskets can be easy and inexpensive but shows that you really put some thought into the gift.  They allow you to combine their interest and pleasures without being limited to just one simple gift.

The first step to creating the perfect gift basket is to pick a theme.  Start with what they enjoy doing.  Do they have a hobby?  What do they enjoy doing?  Do they need something to relax and indulge in?  This is where you get to get creative.  The entire process of finding things to fill the gift baskets should not take very long at all once you figure out a theme.  This time barely compares to the time that your mother will spend enjoying her gift basket that keeps on giving. 
You can also make smaller gift baskets for other moms in your life.   Grandma's, Mother-in-Laws, Sisters (that are moms), friends, etc...
