A Great Mother’s Day Gift Idea

May 08, 2013 No Comments by Disclosure

There are about a million ways to show Mom how much you care, but they don’t have to cost a fortune!

I like putting together my own gift baskets, that way I can personalize them a bit. I debated on what kind of gift basket I should do this year, and I figured, every one could use a little less stress in life, so I’d put together a relaxing basket. 

Walmart gave me a $25 gift card to put something together, so off I was to do some shopping. My first stop, candles! I was hoping to find a lavender scented candle, but they didn’t have any at my store, so I checked out whatever they had. I settled on a Mainstays Fresh Cotton
iconscented candle. One of my favorite scents!

Next, I headed over to the body care section. I found bubble bath, but I wasn’t sure about buying it. I, believe it or not, asked a random shopper what she would rather have. She actually told me that she would rather have body wash, since her tub was too small. I thought.. Good Idea! So I opted for the body wash/bath oil from Village Naturals called Restless Nights Relief in Lavender and Chamomile
icon. It smells really good! Along with the Body Wash, you must had a bath pouf to exfoliate!

Next up was the Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Lotion
icon in Lavender & Chamomile. I figured, if you’re taking a nice relaxing bath, why not moisturize right after? right?

Lastly, I went over the the card section and found a card that said everything that I wanted to say to my Mom. It was actually perfect, so I was excited to find it!

Total for my gift basket?

Candle: $5.00

Aveeno Lotion: $5.96

Body Wash: $4.97

Bath Pouf: $1.00

Mom’s Day Card: 4.97

Total: $21.90 + 7% tax= $23.43

I already had a cute basket at home, and tissue paper to wrap with, so it worked out perfectly!

You can put together a gift basket just as easily for your mom, and it’s great because you personalize it to her likes! You can a gardening gift basket with some seeds, gloves, and gardening tools, or even an art basket with whatever art supplies she usually uses. The possibilities are pretty much endless!

Have fun shopping for Mom, and Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful Moms out there!
