Want to make your own Mother's Day gift basket?

Creating a Mother's Day gift baskets is actually easy to do if you have the time and patience. Below are a few helpful tips to help you create your own Mother's Day gift basket. 

First, you need to think about which of her interests you want to focus on. If your mother has no specific interests, you might try a relaxation basket, with everything she needs for a home spa. 

The interest will help determine what type of "basket" you use for the gift basket. A gardening basket, for example, can be arranged in a flower pot, bucket or even a handy stool with space inside to store tools. For a cook, a nice new stock pot is the perfect basket. Use your imagination to come up with a unique container.

Next, you'll want to come up with a few treats to place in the basket. If she loves doing crossword puzzles, a couple of puzzle books, along with a pencil and some tea to make while she's working on the puzzles can do the trick. A gardener might like some new seeds, pretty gardening gloves and a shiny new trowel. It's a good idea to tuck something edible into the Mother's Day gift basket, as well.

Chocolate is the universal Mother's Day treat, but look for it in fun shapes that match the basket theme. For example, chocolate ladybugs are perfect for the gardening gift, while shells might be more appropriate for a spa. If she has a favorite snack, add that in there, too.

Last, but not least, the packaging is what will make your gift look great. For regular baskets, try using colored cellophane. It's fairly easy to use, just place your basket in the middle of a square, pull up the corners and tie with a pretty ribbon. This will work for many different baskets, actually. For other items, you might just want a card and a bow to adorn them. If you want to make your own bows, look for themed ribbon to make them with so the basket will stay thematic.

Still not sure where to start? No time? We've done all the work for you. Simply select one of our lovely Mother's Day gift baskets and we'll ship your gift right to her door for Mother's Day or any day!!

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
