Choose the best gift for your mother

Break free from the usual jewellery, flowers and perfumes and create one of a kind gift basket for your mother.  Pick up a wicker basket form a flea market, dollar store or a craft store. Or you can improvise with unusual containers like ice bucket, serving bowl, gardening planters, etc. Line the basket with shredded paper. Now comes the part of ideas for its contents.

Here are some top ideas for designing gift hampers for your mum based on her interests and hobbies:

Gardening Lover: Start with the container where you can use a canvas garden tote, a planter or a watering can. Fill it with apron, gardening gloves, insect repellent, mini –shovel, seeds, sun hat and potted plants.

Stressed Out Mother: Is your mum stressed out due to work commitments and chores at home? Gift her relaxing and luxurious experience with a pampering spa basket. Fill it with scented soaps, body lotions, candles, bubble bath, inflatable bath pillow and magazines and beer or any other favourite drinks at hand. Top it by a bathrobe and bath room slippers.

Gourmet Mom: If your mum loves the finer things in life and you have the budget, fill baskets with exotic treats-imported cheese, Beluga Caviar, artisan bread, stuffed Greek Olives, Pate and Belgian chocolate. A bottle of bubbly- French champagne will top the basket.

Golfer Mum:  In place of a basket, gift her brightly coloured cooler and fill it up with golf balls and tees, bottled water, snacks and a golf themed photo frame.

Coffee Lover: The mom who is a java junkie can be presented burlap filled with favourite coffee beans, grinder, personalized mug and also some gourmet snacks like English toffee, Hazelnut Biscotti or your own homemade cupcakes or brownies.

Easy Go Mom: For a mom, who enjoys a laid back lifestyle, a margarita party theme would do well. Start with a tub or an ice bucket and fill it with margarita mix, premium tequila, margarita glasses and salts. Add some salsa and tortilla chips to complete the gift.

Queen of the Day: For the mom with a busy lifestyle, gift a queen of the day hamper. It can contain some queen of the day certificate, which relieves her of all chores and duties for at least a day and queen of the day coupons like free babysitting coupons, which she can redeem on any day she likes. You can include massage and manicure vouchers.

Sports Buff Mum: Assemble a running basket filled with reflective gear, running socks, personal alarm, personalized music playlist, etc. If she is practicing yoga, gift her items like Yoga mat, incense, anti slip socks, etc.
