Gifts For Mum On Mother's Day
Lynne conceived the idea for BasketsGalore back in in 2001/2002 and it became her baby in around 2004 when it began to blossom and grow. She is still a proud mum today, as am I as Auntie Andrea coming on board in 2006. We are also Mums and Aunties in the traditional family sense, as she has 2 girls and I have 2 boys. I suppose what I am trying to say is that Mums come in all ages, shapes and sizes as well as in the traditional sense and a more modern sense of being a mother to your business or group etc. Our own Mum (who has also been involved in BasketsGalore from the start) has recently become a Mummy again to her little puppy Maggi-May, as well as being Grandmother to her four Grandchildren. We of course can't forgot Neil as a proud BasketsGalore Uncle (and Dad to his puppy Benji) but this blog is all about the Mums, his time will come! For now we want to focus on the amazing Gifts For Mum we have to offer on Mother's Day and throughout the rest of the year.
Being Mums ourselves and having created Gifts For Mum for over 15 years now, we like to think we know what you all want in a gift for you Mum, whether that be on her birthday, for when a new baby arrives or on the day we chose to recognise Mothers everywhere, Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday. In the UK & Ireland in 2020, this falls on Sunday 22nd March and for those based internationally many will celebrate on Sunday 10th May instead.
Many Moons Ago
After realising how long we've been creating Mother's Day gifts, I had a look back through the archives of older product ranges. Unfortunately I couldn't find images dating as far back as 2004, but did find some Mother's Day Gift Hampers from our 2008 range. These cute little hampers tended to include some cake or chocolates and tea along with a witty plaque about mums or children. We also dabbled in posh pampering gifts, as you can see from the middle "Retail Therapy" gift hamper.
Last year saw us launch our largest range of Mother's Day Gifts yet, as we find it is probably our next busiest time after Christmas. Traditionally we had offered maybe 10-12 Gifts For Mum, but 2019 saw this more than double. We focused on 5 main ranges: Flower Gifts For Mum, Celebrations Gift For Her, Fruity Wine Gifts, Pamper Gifts For Mum and Traditional Gifts For Mothers. You can read more about each range on the links provided, as a lot of thought and research goes into our creations.
Many of last years best sellers have been retained or freshened up for 2020, but we always like to add something new to the range as well. Many of our Customers are repeat shoppers and while some like to stick to gifts along similar lines, some also like to change things up slightly.
Our best selling gift basket each year at Mother's Day tends to be our Mother's Day Flowers and Treats Gift Basket. With this in mind we decided to build upon that range and offer this gift basket with slightly different variations. So for 2020 we have a version with wine, a version with pampering treats, one with cheese and savoury treats and one focusing on mums favourite, a good old cuppa! We put together a quick video of the 5 options, and you can click here to view the details or to purchase.
My predictions for our Top 3 Gifts For Mum this Mother's Day is as follows:
New for 2020, there has already been a lot of positive feedback on social media about this particular gift for Mum. Wine, chocolates, flowers and an attractive Mum themed mug seems to be a winning combination. You can also choose between red or white wine depending on her favourite tipple. With 25% off the RRP we can see this wine gift for mum flying off the shelves.
The Around the World Wax Melt Collection in this gift basket is just so dreamy by itself, and then she also receives a Mum mug, tea, chocolates, snacks and candles to go with it. This was a popular seller last year and with it being freshened up it looks set to be again in 2020.
If your Mum would prefer a non-alcoholic gift for Mother's Day and is particular about any pampering products she receives, then this Celebration basket with a focus on flowers and food is the perfect choice. This is also new for 2020 and has an impressive 25% off the RRP. There is also a choice of magazine when you get to checkout so she can kick back and put her feet up while enjoying the rest of the contents.
As always, this is just a smaller selection of the Gifts For Mum we have on offer. If you have any specific requests please don't hesitate to get in touch and we are happy to help. We also have gifts dedicated to grandmothers or granny's as they cannot be forgotten on this important occasion. We know how important our mums are, and are here to help send your Mum the perfect gift for Mother's Day.
