Choosing the Right Gift Basket for Mothers Day

We all know Mums are the best - so let yours know by treating her to a fantastic gift basket for your mum. Here are some great Mother's Day gift ideas to get you started with.

Without a doubt your mum deserves a bit of pampering! She'll love an amazing pamper Mothers Day gift basket like our Serene Home Gift Hamper - divine!

The number one rule in choosing a gift basket for Mum is to make it personalised. The gift baskets at Oh Goodie all include your message card so think of something special you want to say. You'll make Mum love your gift basket as much as your first handmade present!

Get your Mum all the items that you know she loves but doesn't often splurge on herself. How about a Tea Lovers hamper? Brimming with beautiful goodies that will remind her how much she's loved every time she puts the kettle on.

Today we think of Mother’s Day as a time to give gifts of flowers, wine, or hampers of tasty treats to show our appreciation. Our modern Mothers Day began in the United States in the 19th century when Ann Reeves Jarvis set up Mother’s Day Work Clubs to improve sanitary conditions, reduce infant mortality and help wounded soldiers during the Civil War.

It wasn't until Jarvis died, and her daughter organised the first formal Mother’s Day events centred around the church, that the modern Mothers Day was born. She worked over the years to spread the idea of Mother’s Day, and by 1914, President Woodrow Wilson declared the first official Mother’s Day.

These days we find many different ways to shower our mothers with love and gift hampers are one of the most popular.

Auckland gift store Oh Goodie has great Mothers Day gift ideas such as the Champagne and handmade truffles, the Fruit and Wine gift box or the Morning tea for Mum basket, packed with a selection of premium teas and coffee and delicious treats including Fruit Cake, Fudge Brownies, good old Shortbread and classic Toblerone.

The Ladies Pamper basket is another way to spoil Mum with extra special bodycare products she might not normally buy herself, beautifully presented in a flax kete. Or give her a modern twist on the classic flowers with Gift Barn's Gerbera Spice - premium vibrant Gerberas, wonderfully arranged in a cube, with foliage and moss. Whatever gift hamper you choose, your mum will love that you've taken the time to buy a Mothers Day gift just for her.
