In a couple of weeks we’ll be celebrating our Mothers – the amazing women who loved us, raised us and have played every role from nurse to best friend over the years. Mother’s Day gifts can be hard. How do you express appreciation to the person who has been there for you in the ways that count most? Whether it’s mom, grandma, an aunt, sister, mother in law or a friend who’s touched your life significantly – we have compiled a list of gifts that will wow, and touch the hearts of the women you love most this Mother’s Day. Check them out our 7 Mother’s Day Gifts for the women we love:
AwesomeBox – What better way to show your appreciation for someone than with a box full of customized photos and messages! AwesomeBox makes it easy to let someone know how much you care – each photo and message you choose will be printed on beautiful 5.25″ by 5.25″ cards and packaged in a gorgeous gift box – then shipped to the recipient of your choice. The best part? You can setup an AwesomeBox to be created by any number of people. Just invite them to the box you’re building and they will be able to add photos and messages as well. Once you’re finished complete the checkout and your box will be on it’s way. This is a wonderful idea for families who live states (or countries) apart. AwesomeBox makes it simple for families and friends over any distance to connect and share their memories. When we tried AwesomeBox we were impressed by how easy it was to collaborate with each other and how beautifully printed each card was. We even used some low light camera phone photos and were impressed with the quality of what we received!
AwesomeBox starts at $49 for 25 cards, and also has options for 50 and 100 cards. This is one of our top gifts, especially for siblings and family who are separated by distance!
These are some of our go-to gifts for any special occasion. Every GourmetGiftBaskets.com basket that we’ve tried has exceeded our expectations for variety and quality. They have a number of baskets especially for Mother’s Day too. Our favorites: The Gardening Gift Basket which comes with three gardening tools and and assortment of delicious and healthy snacks is perfect for the garden enthusiast. Especially this time of year, when any gardener is sure to be out and about they will definitely appreciate some new tools and healthy snacks to keep them going after a day out in the sun! There’s plenty of nuts, trail mix, and sweet cookies, as well as pretzels and savory dip to please anyone!
The Mother’s Day Delight gift basket is one of my all time favorites. It contains two boxes full of amazing snacks – first, a box of decadent hand-dipped artisan truffles that are truly amazing! These are not your standard boxed chocolates, this is very high quality milk, dark and white chocolate with an assortment of fillings. One smell will have you over the moon, and the box is large enough for sharing. You’ll also get a beautifully packaged tray of nuts and dried fruit. This is another example of outstanding variety with everything from apples and kiwi to pineapple and papaya. Over 2.5 lbs of fruit and nuts will keep any snacker happy! This is one of my favorite gifts to give because it’s so hard to find this kind of quality chocolate and assortment of dried fruits in the store, so I know it’s something that will be truly enjoyed.
