List of things to put in a gift basket for Mothers Day

  2. Gourmet food - treat mum to something extra special by adding gourmet versions of her favourite snacks to her gift basket.

  3. A bottle of wine - wine or champagne transforms a Mothers Day gift basket into something fabulous and indulgent.

  4. Beauty products - encourage mum to pamper herself by including skincare products or body creams that she wouldn't usually splurge on.

  5. Relaxation gifts - this is a day for mum to relax, so including soothing bath salts or an aromatherapy candle is a perfect Mothers Day gift basket idea.

  6. A gift voucher - A gift card or voucher in her Mother's Day gift basket gives mum the freedom to choose something a little extra for herself.

What to put in a Mother's Day hamper for new mums?

For a first Mothers Day gift, first-time mums can be made to feel even more special with either a unique gift basket that includes items for baby, or items focused purely on herself. Include a mix of post-pregnancy pamper gifts, baby items, and sweet treats. We know new mums would be tickled pink with the Iconic Baby Essentials Hamper with Moët, which features an adorable Sophie the Sheridan Sebastian Plush Bear, Giraffe teether, baby clothes, organically made pamper products for baby and mum, a bottle of Moet and Chandon Champagne, and the sweetest nibbles for loving mums.


For a Mothers Day gift basket that only includes items for mum, the L'Occitane Cherry Blossom Hamper is a great idea. It includes a candle, bath soak, L'Occitane hand cream and scented soap, a gorgeous blush pink satin robe, and a feast of different chocolate and sweet nut treas. Spoiling mums of newborn bubs this Mother’s Day is assured with the extensive range of gift hamper ideas. Pampering hampers, personalised Mother’s Day gifts, gourmet food and Champagne comprise the perfect combination when considering ideal gifts for all new mums.
