Spa/ Cosmetic Gift Basket
The second Mother’s Day gift basket we are going to look at is the spa or cosmetic gift basket. There is so much you can do with this. A spa basket typically includes lots of different items to facilitate relaxation. Bath salts, scented candles, essential oil, bubble bath, and massage oils are just some ideas to get you started. If you want to go all out and have a full basket of goodies, you can also add a bathrobe, house slippers, a massage parlor ticket, and even a good read. In today’s busy world, many people never take the time out to spoil themselves and give themselves some much-needed self-care. A lot of busy women, moms, and moms-in-law spend most of their time looking after the needs of others. By gifting the women in your life with a spa gift basket, you can make self-care easy for them. They are sure to appreciate the effort.
Besides a spa basket, you can also go with a cosmetic gift basket. This basket contains similar items, and these include lotions, perfume, soaps, scrubs, and other such items. This basket is an easy gift, but the recipient always loves it. You can buy these kinds of gift baskets in any grocery store or pharmacy. You can also find them online. They come at different price points and cater to different tastes. As with the other gift baskets, these are also great for customizing or creating on your own.

There’s nothing like a bottle of wine and some cheese for a time of relaxation at home. You can make sure that the basket has her favorite wines and cheeses, and you can even introduce her to some of your favorites for her to try.
Getting Creative with a DIY Gift Basket
Besides chocolate, spa, cosmetic, wine, and cheese Mother’s Day gift baskets, other types are worth mentioning. Some of these, you may be able to pick up in a store, but for others, you might need to combine different elements from different places. If you have the time and are feeling creative, you can design and create a basket, especially with your mom’s interests, tastes, and hobbies in mind.
Here are a few DIY gift basket ideas:

A great motivator for people starting to exercise and get serious about fitness is having the right gear. Consider buying her some cute exercise clothes or sneakers, weights, a yoga mat, or even a cool sports bag. You could also through in an exercise DVD for some added motivation.
