No matter how old, young, tall, short, this or that, there’s one extraordinary thing we all share – the amazing individual who gave us the gift of life – mom. And, considering that her bringing us into the world is not an easy task to repay, it’s important that we take full advantage of the one day a year that’s dedicated to celebrating her. This Mother’s Day, make mom feel extra special with something unique that shows her how meaningful she is to you. To help make this Mother’s Day one to remember, we put together a few of our favorite gift ideas, from custom creations to personalized presents, that will fill her heart with love, happiness, and joy.
Create a Custom DIY Gift Basket
From the very first art project we ever did as kids to our most recent masterpiece, her unwavering pride and admiration for everything we’ve ever created has made her our biggest fan since day one. So, evoke some of that same excitement and enthusiasm from her this Mother’s Day with a self-assembled DIY gift basket, handpicked and created by you. A thoughtful do-it-yourself option is the best way to show her how much you know and love her with a custom creation, filled with special surprises that are uniquely hers! Here’s how to select the individual items to help create an authentic ‘made with love’ feel.
Fill it With Her Favorite Foods
For the moms with food palates to match the pros, here are a few gourmet goodies that will speak right to her heart. We stand by the notion that a gift basket isn’t complete without each of the following components:
- Some savor nuts
- A flavorful cheese
- A tasty meat option
- And of course, something sweet
This fool proof approach ensures a beautiful and balanced basket that’s complete with the personalized picks that moms prefer.
Step 1: Select the Snacks
Begin by selecting a salty snack. Small snacks and finger foods provide a variety of wonderful uses that moms love. You’ll find everything including tasty appetizers for hosting a party, accommodating sides for any meal, and perfect post meal palate cleansers. A few of our favorites are found in these deluxe nut options and premium popcorn packs, full of flavor and variety. And don’t miss the selection of fine fruits to find something that will add a little extra boost for a bountiful basket.
Step 2: Choose a Cheese
Cheese, perhaps the backbone of any well-rounded gift basket, is an essential element due to the variety of textures and tastes it offers. It’s important to determine complexity, consistency and character when making your cheese selection, as each type delivers different flavors and uses. Our selection of artisanal cheeses has something to suit every mom, including sharp aged cheddars, soft creamy spreads, buttery baby swisses, gorgeous gourmet goudas, and so many more!
Step 3: Mix in a Meat
Moving on to the meat, it’s important to keep in mind the different tastes when determining the best fit for your basket. You’ll want to make the selection based on which of the flavorful options will best complement the existing elements in the basket. We recommend starting with our collection of savory sausages and smokehouse meats. With every item seasoned to perfection and slow cooked for a perfect smoky flavor, these are guaranteed to be a hit with Mom.
Step 4: Select Something Sweet
Lastly, top it all off with one of mom’s favorite sweet treats that she can’t resist. Whether she prefers a batch of rich and creamy fudge, a premium box of decadent chocolates, or an assorted variety of fun and fruity candies, these tantalizing options offer something sugary for every mom.
Assemble it All
Now that each part of your present has been picked, sit back and relax while it gets delivered right to your door! In the meantime, get your creative juices flowing. As soon as everything arrives, you’ll need to assemble it all. The best way to wrap it all together is in a large basket. Fill the basket with each of the gifts, spacing them out proportionately. Fill any large empty spaces or gaps with colorful tissue paper, keeping everything securely in place, and complete your creation with a fancy ribbon or large bow. She’ll be overwhelmed with joy as she opens her gift, full of the delicious delicacies she loves most, and custom created by you.
Make it Meaningful With Something Personal
Another great gift idea is to give her something special that’s made specifically for her. A personalized present not only gives her a gift she loves, it’s even more meaningful by the fact that it’s made exclusively for her with her name on it. It becomes so easy to fall into the habit of giving the same gifts, year after year, that are frequently forgotten about. Surprise her this year with the sweet sentiment of a personalized gift.
