A Gift Basket for Mom is the Perfect Gift

A gift basket is the perfect gift for Mom. Creating a personalized gift basket is the answer to the struggle of what to get the mom who has everything. The contents of the gift basket can be just as unique as she is. Be creative! Whatever she loves the most can be the theme for her own unique basket.

Consider the possibilities:

Beverages. Fill a basket with her favorite beverage, whether that's coffee, tea, or wine. Use a variety of sizes and shapes of packages. The basket can include a mug or two. A unique idea would be to include a mug hand painted by you, etched wine glasses, or hand-painted coasters.

Movies. If your mom is a movie buff, her basket can include an assortment of DVDs, mixed with discount tickets to go to the movies, or gift certificates for her favorite movie store.

Books. Moms who love to read would love a basket of assorted books and gift certificates for book stores. Include a book light and some bookmarks.

Hobby Theme. Whatever your Mom's passion is, it can be the theme for a gift basket. If she loves gardening, small gardening tools, seeds, gloves or gardening books can go in her basket. If she enjoys scrapbooking, put together some scrapbooking supplies. Baskets can be built around a love for golf or tennis or a particular kind of music. Any hobby offers an opportunity to create a unique gift basket.

Aromatherapy. Soothe her with aromatherapy. Build a basket around a particular aroma. Include candles, bubble bath, soap, shampoo, and potpourri.

Relaxation Theme. The perfect gift for mom can be built around relaxation. Include a massager, soothing music, or a gift certificate to a local spa. Candles and wind chimes are also ideas for a basket with a relaxation theme, or a DVD with meditation instructions.

There are businesses who will build a gift basket to your specification, but putting one together isn't really that difficult. Spend some time thinking about what to include and you'll be able to come up with a basket that is one of a kind.
