What NOT to put in A Mothers' Day Gift Basket

Hi Guys! Mother's day is right around the corner ( literally ) whether you were raised by wolves or a real live human, this is to time to show your Mother how much you love her :-) Gift Baskets are one of the most popular gifts people tend to give their moms on this special day; whether you make it yourself or purchase it from the store. Here are a few things to NEVER put/get in a Mothers Day Gift Basket.

1. Perishable Items: Believe it or not, people will pack perishable items in a gift basket .. ask me why, I could not give you an answer. Remember the basket is a light straw like material that is great for holding items of a similar density. Let's say for example you decide to pack a fruit basket ( with real fruits ) use a different container one that has the ability to cool rather than a flimsy basket.

2. Mixed Items: This is a bit similar to point one *but not really*  If you pay enough attention to Gift Baskets, you will notice they are always categorized. For example you might see a Bath Basket which has Shower Gels, Loofah, Various Scrubs and so on ...or you might see a Food Basket with Fruits& Nuts, champagne, chips etc. Never mix food with bathing stuff or perfumes with chocolates. This will not end well.

3. Items with prices: This is Gift Basket Rule #1. Ensure that all the price tags have been removed before you hand that Basket over to mom. If you bought it in a store, the onus is on you to go through and check that all the prices have been removed.

4. Cliche Items: "A mothers love is never-ending, but a cheesy gift is unforgiving" :-) Refrain from getting your mother the usual mug or picture frame. See if you can get more personalized items .. these might be a bit more expensive , however this woman only gave you life :-) Nothing is too expensive.

These are my top 4 Items to never put in a Gift Basket.
