Great Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Hallmark and FTD have made a fortune on gift buying for mom on Mother's Day, but it might be time to move away from the standard bouquet of flowers and the frilly, glittery card and embrace some new gift ideas. 

Mother's Day is officially and unofficially recognized in most countries worldwide. Whether or not it is called Mother's Day depends upon the country celebrating it. One thing is true, no matter where you are, and that is that mothers are honored and given gifts like flowers from their children and grandchildren on that special day. As evidenced by statistics from AT&T, more long distance phone calls are made on Mother's Day than any other day of the year. 

Since mother is such an important figure in your life, maybe it's time to break away from tradition and give her a gift that is not flowers and candy.

Adorable Gift Baskets is devoted to creating and sending a gift baskets to mom, grandmother and the mother figures in your life.  However, if you have the time you may even end up saving money by doing it yourself. Below are a few how-to ideas.

Baskets are readily available at any craft or big box store in the gardening section. They are normally constructed of wicker or a woven material and come in a huge selection of sizes. You can tailor the basket to match your mom's personality or her hobbies.

If your mom loves to plant flowers, put seeds, tools, gardening tip booklets, gift certificates to local garden shops and even lawn decorations like plant stakes or row markers in the basket. A mother or grandmother who loves tea would benefit from a basket filled with varieties of teas, small boxes of cookies, teacups, tea cozies or even cup doilies for her end tables. Crafters might like a basket filled with yarns, needles or patterns.    

Every basket can be unique, and you do not even need to put it all in a basket. You can use tin pails, buckets, tote bags or anything else that will hold the gifts. Finish the basket by wrapping it in cellophane and add a card.

Of course, if you are pressed for time or need to ship out of state, Adorable Gift Baskets is devoted to creating extraordinary Mother's Day gift baskets for delivery nationwide. The whole point is to make mom or any woman in your life feel special, and Adorable Gift Baskets will help you do just that!
