Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate our beloved mothers. As kids, we usually give our mums homemade cards and perhaps some flowers from the garden, but once we reach adulthood, it’s nice to treat mum to something bigger and better. Sure, she’d still like a cute homemade card but why not splash out and show her how much you appreciate her?
Gift boxes are an excellent idea for Mother’s Day. You can buy a pre-made gift box containing items you know she’ll love, or you can make your own gift box using a pre-bought box designed for Mother’s Day.
Here are some ideas to help you get started.
Pamper Gift Box
Most mums need some extra pampering time. Life is busy and when you are trying to juggle family responsibilities with work, it’s even more hectic. What better way to show your mother you care than by gifting her a pamper box full of luxury treats?
Fill a gift box with bath bombs, luxury bath salts, and high-end moisturisers made from natural ingredients and essential oils. If you have time, go the extra mile and make your own bath bombs; it’s not that difficult if you have a few essential ingredients.
Sweet Treats Gift Box
Does your mum have a sweet tooth? If so, she’ll love a gift box containing sweet treats. Chocolate is the most obvious choice but why not mix it up with a range of delectable goodies, such as cookies, truffles, and muffins?
Homemade truffles are fun to make and look gorgeous in cute little paper wrappers. Make a selection the day before and fill a small gift box with truffle treats. Mum will be delighted, and you will have scored some extra brownie points.
Cookies are another quick and easy treat anyone can whip up. Make a selection of cookies and decorate them with cute messages to show mum how much you love her. Alternatively, try making cupcakes. We recommend red velvet cupcakes for the extra wow factor.
Luxury Tea Gift Box
Tea is a popular drink, and there are a great many varieties to choose from these days. If mum loves a cuppa tea, create a special gift box containing types of tea she might not have tried before, or doesn’t usually buy because they are more expensive than budget black tea.
Luxury loose tea is a great choice for gift boxes. Pick from the best posh tea brands and add a selection of Darjeeling, Assam, herbal teas, and green tea, and include some pretty China teacups so she can make afternoon tea her new tradition.
A Floral Gift Box
Fresh flowers might not work in a gift box, but you can go with a floral theme. Pick some lavender-scented beauty products, a small collection of bulbs for the garden, or anything else with a floral theme. Mum will love it.
Finally, if mum likes a drink, create a gift box that contains her favourite tipples, whether she’s an artisan gin fan or prefers red wine. This one is guaranteed to be warmly welcomed on Mother’s Day.
