Tea & Cookies Gift Basket for Mom
By including a variety of items that your mom will love, you can create a gift that is both personalized and practical. Here are some things to remember to when creating a tea & cookie gift basket for mom.
Choose the Right Tea: The first step to creating the perfect tea and cookies gift basket for mom is to choose the right tea. If your mom is a tea lover, this step might be easy. If not, you can’t go wrong with a classic black tea or a herbal tea like chamomile or peppermint. Be sure to choose high-quality tea that mom will love and that comes in an attractive package.
Select Delicious Cookies: Next, you’ll need to select delicious cookies to include in your gift basket. You can either include a cookie mix in a jar with a recipe or cookbook like I did, bake the cookies yourself, or buy them from a bakery. Some great cookie options for a gift basket include chocolate chip, shortbread, oatmeal raisin, and ginger snaps.
Add Accessories: To make the gift basket extra special, add accessories like a pretty tea cup or mug, measuring spoons, and a spatula for mixing. You could also include a cookbook, tea towel, and an apron. These items will make your gift basket more complete and show your mom that you put thought into every aspect of the gift.
Personalize the Gift Basket: To make the gift basket for mom feel even more personalized, consider adding a handwritten note or a Mother’s Day card. You can also include a bouquet of mom’s favorite flowers or a small plant to the basket. By adding a personal touch, you’ll make your mom feel extra special!

How to Put Together a Mother’s Day Gift Basket
Once you have gathered all the items for the gift basket for mom, it’s time to put it together.
First, select a basket that your mom can reuse or repurpose. Use a basket that isn’t too deep or too big, select a basket that nicely displays the items you place inside of it.
It took me a couple of tries to find the ideal sized basket, but this basket seemed to be just the right size and I liked that it had handles for easy carrying too.
Then, add some shredded paper or tissue paper to the bottom of the basket to provide a cushion. I used a combination of this natural excelsior and this shredded paper for the base of this Mother’s Day gift basket.
Arrange the items in a visually pleasing way, with taller items in the back and smaller items towards the front. You can also add some ribbon or bows to make the items in the basket look even more special.
Within minutes you have a basket filled with items mom will love, perfect for gift giving this Mother’s Day!
Other Gift Basket Ideas for Mom
Maybe you love the idea of a gift basket for mom this Mother’s Day but a tea & cookie gift basket isn’t necessarily mom’s cup of tea. Here are a few other Mother’s Day gift basket themes that mom might enjoy instead.
Spa Day Basket: If mom loves to pamper herself, a spa day basket may be the perfect gift. Fill the basket with luxurious items like lavender shower melts, body scrubs, and linen sprays. You can also add in some scented candles, a fluffy robe, and a plush towel. And don’t forget to include a gift certificate for a spa treatment or massage to make her feel extra special.
Craft Basket: If your mom is crafty, a craft basket is a thoughtful and creative gift. You can include some art supplies like paints, brushes, and canvases. You can also add in some knitting or crochet supplies, or even a scrapbooking kit.
Book Lovers Basket: If your mom loves to read, a book lover’s basket is a great choice. You can include some of her favorite books (here are a few of my favorite books for giving), a bookmark, and a reading light. You can also add in a cozy blanket and some gourmet tea or coffee for the ultimate reading experience.
Gardening Basket: For the green-thumbed mom, a gardening basket is a thoughtful and practical gift. You can include some gardening tools like gloves, a trowel, pruning shears, and a few homemade plant markers. You can also add in some seeds or bulbs, and a gardening book or magazine for inspiration.
No matter which gift basket you decide to make mom this Mother’s Day, she will appreciate the love, effort, & thoughtfulness you put into creating a special gift just for her. Indulge mom this Mother’s Day…she deserves it!
