Gourmet Gifts: A Great Way To Surprise Your Mom

When it comes to options on how to make your mother feel special, there are a variety of ways that you can choose from. This year, be more creative by giving a gourmet gift basket for her. This is a unique gift commonly overlooked by anyone else. The best thing is, making a gourmet basket is actually very simple. The only prerequisite is that you must know the gift recipient very well. Choose a nice basket, fill it with nice little gifts, and decorate it to make it more presentable. The following steps will teach you how to create a special gourmet gift basket for your mother:

First, visit a crafts store near your area and purchase a nice basket that can still be useable even after it was given as a gift container. There are many baskets for you to choose from, but the more popular ones are collapsible and folding baskets. Pick the one which you think will suit your mother’s taste best. Pay attention to the color and design of the basket. If you want, you can also have the basket customized for your particular purpose.

After choosing a basket, this is where your creativity and imagination comes in. Think of several items that you will place inside the basket as actual gifts for your mom. The items which really come to mind are gourmet items such as French cheese, and exotic coffee. Aside from the ones just mentioned, you can look for unique cooking ingredients in the market which your mom can use in the kitchen. Use a combination of foil and tissue papers to decorate the interior of the gourmet basket to make it more appealing.

Give careful thought as to what your mom would like to receive as a gift. A little consideration will go a long way in fulfilling your goal of making your mother happy. For example, if you are aware that your mom loves cosmetics, then giving her some rare cosmetic items might just be the perfect gift for her. On the other hand, if your mom is a giant fan of cooking, following the gourmet gift basket tips mentioned above will truly be a big help. Try to insert a mother’s day poem inside the basket to make the gift package more complete.

Mothers Day Poem

To That Special Mom

Mother’s Day is a day that is celebrated in many different countries. The ancient Romans also revered their mothers on the day of Juno, the harvest goddess. In the United States, in 1914, a very special woman by the name of Anna Jarvis spearheaded the movement to have a date set aside to revere all moms in this country. Because of her, Mothers Day occurs on every second Sunday in May.

Every year, almost everyone scrambles to find the perfect Mother’s Day card with the perfect sentiment or the perfect mother’s day poem.  Many rely on Hallmark or other card companies to do our work for them, while others are more daring and take months or weeks to write that perfect poem for mom.

The high tech sons and daughters choose to let their fingers do the walking over their keyboards; seeking websites that promise “the perfect card.” There are also those individuals that have books bound with personal family photos of themselves, children, family pets and events that have occurred throughout the years.

The do it yourself card maker will patronize either a small independent scrapbooking store or a big box crafting emporium. These shops make card kits that can be put together with some scissors, glue, colorful pens and miscellaneous embellishments. However the makers of these cards are still on their own to find a suitable poem or saying for their one of a kind mom.

The tradition of honoring Mothers goes back to the Greeks and their celebrations of Rhea the mother of all their deities. The second Sunday in May was proclaimed as the official day to honor all mothers in the United States by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. With Mothers Day Cards and gifts we try to tell our Mothers what they mean to us.

Many have chosen the tradition of writing poems to celebrate the women who nurtured us. Words are used to express deep feelings and from the small child to the professional writer, great effort is put forth to honor in words the women we treasure. With a Mothers Day poem we endeavor to tell Mother how much we love her.

Many mothers can open a box that holds handwritten cards decorated with paper lace and hearts, mis-spelled words and crayon drawings. These precious mementos of their childs first efforts to say Happy Mothers Day, are treasures they keep for a lifetime.

Mothers Day cards may have become a big business, but to the woman who receives them the very fact she received it is worth more than a diamond ring. A poem filled with words that say her child feels loved and secure is more often than not the only time she will hear how much her sacrifices have meant. That is why each May we all sit down to write or search out already written poems to give she who deserves thanks.
