Mother’s Day is the perfect time to spoil your mom (or the mother figure in your life) with something special. If you’re not sure what that should be, consider a premade Mother’s Day gift basket. Already perfectly curated and artfully put together, packaged gift baskets are convenient and easy, and require minimal effort from you (which is especially handy if you have left this particular gift to the last minute). They are usually filled with fun items you might not have thought of on your own, and they allow you to give a bunch of little items instead of just one.
The key to picking
the perfect Mother’s Day gift basket is to find a theme you know your mom will appreciate. Every great gift basket is built around a theme, whether that’s food, self-care, alcohol, or beauty. Think about what your mom loves (cooking? Pampering herself? Trying new foods?) and then go from there. Select a basket that contains items you think she’ll actually get use out of. A relaxation gift basket might look nice, but if you don’t think she’s going to wear the silk eye mask or drink the aesthetically pleasing tea, then it’s definitely not worth it.
Below is a collection of beautiful and practical Mother’s Day gift baskets to choose from for the perfect thoughtful gesture.

Make her everyday breakfast a little more special with this Wolferman’s Mother’s Day gift basket. If you’ve never had Wolferman’s, you’re missing out: the company makes large gourmet English muffins that are a step up from what you might find at your average supermarket. This
Wolferman’s Mother’s Day Tote Gift includes cherry blossom English muffins and San Francisco-style sourdough mini English muffins (the minis are so cute for a smaller breakfast), as well as raspberry kringle, a dark chocolate chink scone, strawberry preserves, and a bag of coffee. It all comes in a floral canvas tote bag she can use even when the breakfast treats are finished. 2 Some Self-Care
If you haven’t heard of
hygge yet (or you have and you’re just not sure what it means), it’s a Danish word that invokes a feeling of coziness and contentment. This Extra Cozy Hygge Box for Mom is full of self-care goodies that will leave the receiver feeling more comfortable and cozy when using everything. The box comes with a pair of super soft chenille socks, a hand-painted cappuccino mug, honey sticks, boho wooden beads, chocolate, a pretty botanical wooden ornament, a small wooden spoon, a personalized card, and your choice of a warm beverage (choose between spiced chai tea, herbal tea, coffee beans, or hot chocolate). This is basically a cozy, quiet evening in a box. 3 A Perfect Morning
This Mother’s Day gift basket, perfectly named
Joyful Morning, is so beautiful and full of high quality items, so if you’re looking to splurge a bit, this is an excellent option. Inside, you’ll find a mango wood cutting board, a brass scoop that can be used in pretty much anything, a sage colored linen tea towel, Dardamins mandarin oranges for something sweet, Farmhouse Pottery maple syrup, Homestyle Pancake Mix, a stonewall mug, and Canyon Coffee. It’s essentially everything she needs for a perfect quiet morning at home, and it all comes packaged in a beautiful woven basket that can double as a piece of home decor. 4 A Drink Kit
Perfect for an upcoming summer day, this Mother’s Day gift basket includes everything she’ll need for a delicious glass of sangria… and some extras. The
Giften Market Sangria Gift Box comes with a Lush Wine Mix for sangria, which can be chilled with wine over ice or frozen for a sangria slushie. In keeping with the theme, it also comes with a sweet citrus hand cream, a blood orange mint Poppy & Pout lip balm, and Sugarfina gummy watermelon slices. There’s also a handwritten card in there that makes the basket feel a little extra special. If you really want to score some points, buy a bottle of red or white wine that can be used with the sangria mix. 5 An Excuse For An Outing
Harry & David Picnic Basket Gift is so cute to look at, and it’s also the perfect excuse to grab some drinks with your mom, go outside, and enjoy the spring weather during an actual picnic. It comes with six Royal Verano pears (Harry & David are known for these pears, which are super sweet and superior to basically every other pear out there), cheese, sausage, crackers, baklava, peanut butter pretzels, and spinach artichoke dip—so basically everything you need for the ideal snacking spread. Everything is packaged in a beautiful woven chipwood basket with handles that she’ll use even when she’s done with the food. 6 The Perfect Kitchen Companion
If the mom you’re buying for spends a lot of time cooking, then she could probably use some more of the items she likely uses very often. This Mother’s Day gift basket, called
Kerber’s Farm Pantry Staples Gift Box, is a thoughtful and useful one, and it’s perfect if you really have no idea what to buy (because almost anyone could use these items). Everything comes from Kerber’s Farm, a small farm in Huntington, New York that has been making fresh items since the 1940s. Inside, you’ll find extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, organic sea salt and lavender, and some fig jam. Sometimes it’s just nice to use a special olive oil when cooking. 7 A Box Of Relaxation
“Royal Treatment,” this basket is full of gifts that encourage relaxation, because, as the site notes, “every woman deserves to feel like royalty for the day.” Inside is a Old Whaling Co Spearmint & Eucalyptus Bath Bomb, lavender mint herbal tea by Big Heart Tea Co, two Lapcos sheet masks, a Raaka Unroasted Green Tea Chocolate, a pretty speckled Givenne mug, a Wild Earth Scents Sea Salt + Sage candle, and T+M Cloud Socks. It’s basically everything she needs for a soothing, invigorating bath followed by the comfiest socks ever. So, really, you can’t go wrong with this one. 8 A Colorful Mix
This super colorful
“Box of Sunshine” gift basket is so aesthetically pleasing. Filled with bright and sunny gifts that are all yellow, it will make your mom happy just looking at it. This one includes tea from Big Heart Tea Co., a box of buttery shortbread cookies from Unna Bakery, a yellow mug, Big Sky Citrus Delights Meyer Lemon Candies, a Bee Seasonal jar of organic honey, and Yes Cocktail Company Lemon Crisps (there’s definitely a theme happening here!). You can also opt for some add-ons if you want to spend more, which includes a candle, face masks, a blanket, lip balm, and more. 9 For The Wine Drinker
If the mom in your life loves a nice glass of wine, then buying them a bottle is an easy and great gift option. You can make that gift even better by opting for this
Wine and Gourmet Snack Pack from Maker Wine. This comes with six cans of wine: two cans of sparkling sauvignon blanc, two cans of rosé, and two cans of zinfandel. This comes out to two bottles of wine, and the cans are super convenient and easy: they’re great for bringing on picnics or to the beach. You’ll also find an array of gourmet, locally sourced snack pairings, which change up depending on what’s available: think crackers, olives, chocolate, and some dried fruits. It’s like a deconstructed charcuterie board. 10 All Of The Skincare
Buying skincare and beauty products for someone else can be tricky if you don’t know exactly what they like. That’s why it can be nice to buy a variety of items: they can try things out and use what they like and maybe even find something new. This set of skincare from The Honest Company, called
Sweet Mama Gift Kit, is great, especially for any new moms who are still in that postpartum period. It comes with bath salts, body butter, body lotion, nipple balm, body oil, a mud mask, a fuzzy headband for keeping hair off the face, tinted eye cream, and lip gloss.
No matter which Mother’s Day gift basket you pick, rest assured the mother figure in your life will appreciate it and all of the goodies inside. And, hey, maybe you can even try some too.
