We recently took a look at the creative process behind our new range of innovative gifts for Mum, in the form of our Fruity Wine Gifts range. These were designed with a younger Mum in mind, in her 30's/40/50's and you can read more about them here. However, we also like to keep in mind the slightly more mature Mum, perhaps in her 60's or 70's now. Her tastes may be more simple, traditional and conservative. That's not to say we are branding all Mothers in this age bracket with this personality or taste. After all everyone has both a biological age and a spiritual age. These 2 ages may not be that far apart in terms of years, or they could be very far apart indeed. There may be 'young at heart' Mums or 'old before your time' Mums. You know your Mum best and so will know which range best suits her tastes. We offer the choices and you make the final decision. There isn't a one gift fits all policy for Mums, as they are all unique.
Many Gift Hampers for Mothers are produced for the mass market and so all become very samesy, or worse they are just a standard Food Hamper with the word 'Mum' or 'Mother's Day' inserted into the title with little or no imagination or thought having gone into producing it with Mothers in mind. This is where BasketsGalore differ, we put an incredible amount of thought into each and every gift creation. Our aim isn't to churn out thousands of a bog standard Hamper Gift For Mothers, but rather to deliver gifts that Mums really want to a smaller number of delighted Mummies.
What's even better is that products we include aren't kitschy Mother's Day' items and so our Gift Hampers For Mums can be sent for a wide range of occasions. We are here all year round, not just for the busy money-making occasions.
For this Traditional Gifts For Mum range, the core products centre around items and flavours we know everyone enjoys. You'll notice these include chocolate oat cookies, original butter fudge, fruity flapjacks and earl grey tea. An attractive Mum themed mug then accompanies these treats to both theme the basket and allow her to enjoy with the food & drink items included in her Hamper.
For Traditional Mother's who may also appreciate a little dabble in the more exotic, the core items are extended to include some snacks such as apple sticks, vegetable crisps and a sparkling tea drink. These items are smaller, and so are not overwhelming but add something a little bit different and new. This particular gift also contains an exciting new product for this year in the form of Wild Olive's wax melt journal of scents from around the world. We've even included a tea light holder to melt them down and send your mum on a trip in her imagination. Who knows it may even prompt her to take a trip of her own.
If chilling out amid relaxing, fancy scents aren't her style then perhaps the addition of some chocolates, organic lemonades and a personal touch of a handmade wooden Plaque and Dotty Lady with Mum/Grandma wording would be more up her street. These combined with the traditional favourites create a really pratical, yet thoughtful and one of a kind gift.
If your Mother is more of a do-er then perhaps she'd like to read up on her latest hobby or grow herself a sunflower before indulging in some iced cake, real fruit jellies and fruity chocolate and biscuits. There's also some hand cream and a scented candle as an end of day treat. She can then sit back and put her feet up with a nice traditional cup of tea and choice of biscuits to dunk.
For the Traditional Mum who enjoys a little bit of love, then these amazing poems by Bespoke Verse are sure to melt her heart & make her feel special. Which at the end of the day is really our aim, and yours. You can select the message/poem type your prefer from a choice of 3, to really personalise your gift. This luxury gift for Mum really has all bases covered in terms of food, drink, pampering potions and personalisation.
It's worth noting, you also receive a themed gift card with each gift basket or hamper ordered. This will be selected by a staff member according to what message has been written for the recipient. This range would normally see our 'Mum', 'Grandmother' or 'Mother's Day' card accompanying them, however this can changed to reflect whatever the reason or occasion for sending the gift is.
Please remember this is just a small selection of the Hampers for Mothers we have on offer. You can see more of the range here. All the gifts featuring here can be delivered to yourself in advance of Mother's Day or any other occasion, as there is nothing in them of a perishable nature. We can also deliver directly to your Mum if you don't live nearby, and in this case please remember to reserve your favourite by the Thursday before Mothering Sunday.
We're always here to chat online if you wish to discuss an order or making an amendment to a Gift Basket. If it is after business hours for us, as we know many of you live further afield in Australia or Canada, then please send us a quick email and we'll get back to you within 24 hours.
