Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Build-a-Basket at Walmart (sponsored)

7 May 2011 No Comment Disclosure


It’s getting down to the wire. Mother’s day is right around the corner. It will be here before we know it.

Trying to think of the perfect Mother’s Day gift? As a Walmart Mom, I was presented with the challenge to Build-a-Basket for Mom. So I headed to my local Walmart with my own Mom in mind. The challenge was to create a beautiful gift basket less than $30. Can it be done?

After looking around a bit I stumbled upon this very cute white Better Homes and Garden basket. What added to the cute factor of the basket was the lining of pastel blue and yellow flowered fabric. What caught my eye the most was the price. This basket was on clearance for only $5 which makes this basket the perfect base for my Mother’s Day gift idea.

My Mom loves flowers, and as I’ve mentioned many times before she likes to garden as well. So instead of grabbing some fresh cut flowers that maybe will last a week, I went to Walmart’s Garden Center and looked for a plant that would match our basket. I found a rather large, PERENNIAL Delphinium for only $4. Not only are these flowers great and absolutely beautiful sitting in the Mother’s Day basket but since they are perennial my Mom can plant them in her garden and watch them grow year after year. A Mother’s day gift idea that lasts, gotta love that!
Next up a little pampering. Keeping with the blue theme, I found a large bottle of Olay body wash (in a blue bottle) and a matching bath puff with a Better Homes and Gardens Fresh Ocean Flowers candle for that perfect scent.

No gift basket is complete without some indulgences, I think. So I added a reusable, freezable cup (similar to this tumbler set) that my Mom can use throughout the summer to keep her drinks cold, even on the go, and some of her favorite candy.

I’m so excited about this basket. I think my Mom is absolutely going to love it. I can’t wait to see her face on the big day…if I can wait that long :D

What are your ideas for a Build-a-Basket for Mom?
