When it comes to Mother’s Day, it’s all about gifts from the heart. I was challenged by Walmart, as a part of the Walmart Moms, to share some of my Mother’s Day gift ideas. So with the giftcard provided I headed to my local Walmart to see what kind of gifts I could put together to create my own gift basket for Mom.
When shopping for Mom on Mother’s Day, I’m of course on the hunt for things that she would like or that would match her personality and style. My Mom is an avid gardener so the kidlets and I decided to create a garden themed gift basket for her.
For our basket we found a large blue bowl for $1.00 and some yellow tissue paper ($.97) for filler. Once we found something to hold our gift, it was onto finding small gifts to fill inside.
In the Mother’s Day section, next to the cards in my store, there was a nice variety of gift ideas. I was immediately drawn to the miniature roses in the cute ladybug holder for $5.88. I thought they were absolutely adorable and something I know my Mom would love. Mom could display them on her computer desk or plant them in the garden and watch them grow.
Then the boys and I headed over to the jewelry department where they helped me pick out this simple yet cute bracelet ($5.00) for her that says “Best Mom” on one of the charms. This made a great, unexpected addition to our gift basket. Next, it was onto the bakery for a sweet treat. Who doesn’t like to get cupcakes for a gift? We found some gourmet vanilla bean cupcakes by Kimberley’s Bakeshoppe for $3.98. In a pack of 4 it was just the right size to fit into our basket.
One of the best parts of gardening is the smell of blooming flowers. Right? So, we found a candle in one of my Mom’s favorite scents, Honeysuckle, for $3.97 to add to the gift basket.
And last but not least, a gift isn’t complete without a card. I was amazed at all of the different kinds of cards that Walmart had to offer from as low as $.47. They even had cards that sang and lit up when opened. They were pretty neat to see.
Our finished DIY gift basket was made with love and filled with gifts that Mom will enjoy.
