Gift baskets are taking the world by storm. There are baskets for every holiday, every occasion, every sentiment, every everything. Google ‘gift baskets’ on the internet and you could spend an entire day just browsing through them… By the time you’re finished, you won’t even need one anymore… oops.
You mean the world to me
Whether it’s Mothers’ Day or Fathers’ Day, a gift basket can be the perfect way to say ‘I love you’. Fathers will enjoy the more masculine baskets, more often than not. Golf themes, fishing, popcorn, football… Any sport really… Beer, coffees, and more; with masculine colors decorating the basket, is perfect for the man of your household. Moms may enjoy something a little more feminine, or not, such as hearts and flowers, candy, wine and cheese, gardening themed, teddy bears and others; wrapped in pastels or colorful combinations.
Loving but practical
As I said above, themes are a great way to go when it comes to Mothers’ Day gift baskets. Rather than the mushy, gushy, wishy washy, I love you – now I’m going to make you cry Mothers’ Day gift, why not send something that she’ll truly enjoy. Maybe mom is big into planting flowers or vegetable Mothers day presents Malta gardens; a basket with gardening tools, seeds and gardening gloves would be the perfect gift. Perhaps mom has a sweet tooth; every candy under the sun is available in a basket for mom for this Mothers’ Day. Does your mother like to go to the movies? How about a Mothers’ Day basket with passes to the movies, gift certificates for popcorn and soda and more? You name it they make it. Even if you can’t find a theme that you feel suits your mother pre-made on any of the sites, many of them will custom make a basket for you. You tell them what you want and they’ll put it together.
Themes don’t just have to apply to something that mom likes to do. Maybe she is a wine connoisseur… Maybe she’s big into Godiva chocolate or Starbucks coffee. Ethnic cuisines far beyond French, Italian and Tex Mex are available in grandiose baskets. Boston clam chowder has its very own basket, as do other clam chowders. Hot chocolates, pancakes, cookies, nuts, cheese and crackers… All have gift baskets made around them. If mom’s the one who does the cooking outside as well as the cooking inside, there is even a griller’s basket. Yummy!
