How do you thank your mom for all that she does? How do you acknowledge all the love she has for you and show her all the love you have for her? Hopefully, you can find ways to show your appreciation the whole year through. A Mother’s Day Gift! But on Mother’s Day, we try to communicate all of those feelings in one perfect gift and on a single day. Not a simple task.

Traditionally, people send flowers to their mothers. This makes sense as Mother’s Day is during the springtime! There are many colourful and fragrant flowers to choose from that mark the beginning of the season such as hyacinths, daffodils, tulips, and lilacs. Roses are always suitable, especially in hues of pink, yellow, or orange. But how do you make it special? Be sure you send her favourite flowers. And add a heartfelt note that tells her how much she means to you.

The best gift is always time with YOU. Taking Mom to a champagne brunch on this special day is a time-honoured custom. Deliver your gift in person if you can. The point is to spend time with your mom. It will be memorable for her, and you’ll be happy you did!

#1 You can give Mom more of her favourite things

Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to give your mom for Mother’s Day. You know she likes daffodils and milk chocolate and green tea and concert tickets. If you send a gourmet gift basket, you don’t have to choose because you can send them all! Nothing is more special than giving your mom her favourite things. It shows her how much you understand her. And the more of her favourite treats you can include, the more you can enhance her delight.

#2 You can give Mom a wide variety of goodies

Flowers, chocolate, and brunch at a nice restaurant may be traditional, but when you give a gift basket, you don’t need to be limited. In a Mother’s Day gift basket, you can include a variety of items – Related or not related at all.  The number and type of goodies only depends on your imagination (and the size of the gift basket).

You may want to include something sweet to eat, something for her to wear, something for her to read, something for her to use, something for her to do, something for her to look at, something for her to listen to on her special day.

Example gift basket idea: chocolate-covered strawberries, her favourite perfume, the latest best selling biography, a Myers gift card, a coupon for a massage, flowers, and a link to a new podcast. Indulge all of her senses!

#3 You can create the perfect gift around a theme just for Mom

Some Mother’s Day gift baskets work best when the items are all connected around a central theme. Maybe your mom has a garden she loves to tend. Consider getting a garden caddy and fill it with some new tools or new garden gloves or seeds for flowers or vegetables she likes.

Perhaps she loves short stories. You can go to your local bookstore and find the best new short story collections and a few of the classics. Different components in a gift basket round out the pleasure! Your Mom will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

#4 You can make the gift more personal

Personal gifts convey the time and effort that goes into them and show that you took the extra step.

#5 You can make your celebration of Mom last longer

Flowers wilt and brunches only last a few hours, but a gift basket filled with her favourite treats or some new items for her to try will make a lasting impression. It will take Mom a while to get through it all so she will remember your thoughtfulness and that will extend the sweet sentiment of Mother’s Day.mothers-day-gift-guide-300x197
