Mother’s Day is the perfect day to show our Mums the love and special treatment they deserve. Maybe it’s breakfast in bed or a beautiful bouquet of flowers – we’ve chosen to create a Mother’s Day hamper, which is also versatile as a thoughtful gift for your sister, daughter, grandmother or in-law and the best part is you get to pick and choose all of her favourite goodies.
Pick Your Hamper
Start by choosing your basket as a base for the gift hamper, either a traditional woven basket or contemporary alternative – tinware or tin pails in pastel and bright colours are a huge trend right now. Decorate your hamper by lining the insides with cello or tissue paper and tying ribbons around the sides of your hamper. Fresh or artificial flowers are another great way to decorate your hamper – simply placing a small bouquet of three or five stems on the top once you’ve filled the basket with the final contents will give a rustic and pretty look overall.
Add Your Products
Create a hamper basket filled with Mum’s favourite treats and choose a variety of luxury cosmetics and pamper treats such as aromatherapy facial masks, scented candles and lotions that when compiled and presented in a care package, makes for a very luxurious present.
2. Breakfast In Bed
Deliver a Mother’s Day hamper tray that features her favourite goodies for an indulgent breakfast in bed. A tin of English Breakfast, Earl Grey tea or freshly brewed coffee accompanied by a beautiful bouquet from your local florist makes for a gorgeous presentation and heartfelt gift. This idea really puts Mum at ease and gives a relaxing start to her day.
Nothing says how much you know Mum than including in her hamper basket a thoughtful book or entertaining magazine, even a series of DVDs that she’s been keen on watching. Stock up on new pyjamas, a new pair of slippers and motherly teddy bears to pop inside your Mother’s Day hamper as a way to encourage Mum to have a relaxing day not far from bed or the couch.
Remember the card as a finishing touch to your Mother’s Day hamper. This is where the little ones can contribute and make a card as well as draw pictures she’ll adore. Family photos also make for a great centrepiece of the card – you might even want to sneak a photo frame into your hamper basket, so the photo in the card can make it on to her bedside table instantly.
Mother’s Day is a time to say thank you to Mums across Australia for all they’ve done, and give them a day off to unwind and put their feet up.
