With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, if you haven’t sent your mom flowers or a thoughtful gift tailored to her interests already, you’re probably scrambling to find something she’ll love that will get there in time. While quick-shipping gifts from Amazon Prime are always an option, so are Mother’s Day gift baskets from companies that have made it their business to deliver prettily packaged goods straight to the recipient’s door.
If the phrase “gift baskets” is conjuring up images of mediocre food items and kitschy house goods in country-style wicker, think again. Today’s options match all styles and interests, with high-quality items from skincare to artisanal goodies and even cocktail ingredients. Whether packaged up in a box, basket or crate, the contents inside are sure to surprise and delight your mom. See 11 of the best Mother’s Day gift baskets below, from a spa-themed box for the mom who loves to be pampered to a coffee subscription for the mom who needs her morning Joe.
