The History of Gift Hampers and Why They're the Perfect Choice for Mother's Day

In the early noughties our Mother’s Day Hampers were bamboo woven nested containers.  Looking back we don’t look upon them with any particular fondness, but it was a useful way of moving on hundreds of smaller hampers that were left over from Christmas Time.  That’s right we didn’t ever specifically set out to create Mother’s Day Hampers, they were simply a means of balancing stock.  As the years rolled by into the early tweens, the Mother’s Day Hampers grew to include a shrink wrapped rose plant.  The famous Mother’s Day Flowers and Treats Gift became the dominant product and as the tweens ended the range had grown into 5 distinctive types of Gift.

Mother’s Day Flowers – Dominated by Pretty Pink Flowering Rose plant from small local nursery wrapped in ribbons and accompanying a small gift basket or box.

Pampering Hampers – Medium to large sized linen lined white gift baskets containing a variety of creams, candles, face masks, room scenters, wax melts with expensive chocolates, teas, etc.

Celebratory Mother’s Day Gift Baskets  - Wine infused popular Food Gift Baskets drawn from the gourmet hamper division.

Traditional Ladies Gifts – Non Food dominated Mother’s Day Gift Baskets with tasteful Mothering Sunday message on fine China mug and assorted East of India keepsakes supported by Chocolates and other food types popular with Mums.

Mother’s Day Hampers Range of small to large hampers celebrating Mother’s Day adapting the successful hamper contents model by giving creative freedom to a trio of working Mums and asking them... what would you honestly like in a hamper this Mother’s Day?”

As Covid struck we rationalised the product offering.  We couldn’t do multiple adjustments with fewer staff, working restrictions and larger number of orders, so the range reduced to the post popular ones

1)      The Mother’s Day Hampers containing Food with a Mother’s Day Mug, Candle, Magazine or Quality Miscellaneous item such as cream,

2)       Mother’s Day Gifts with Flowering Plant Baskets which contained Mum Favourites Foods, a Mother’s Day Balloon and Flowering Plant.

3)      Mother’s Day Gift Baskets shrink wrapped containing Mug and Balloon.

In the Post Covid era of late 2022 to 2024, our Mother’s Day range has evolved once again to create more options for customisation from an ever increasingly intelligent design framework.

At BasketsGalore, we know the importance of Mother's Day and have through a gradual evolutionary process created hampers that reflect the love and appreciation we feel for our Mum. Each of our Mother's Day Gifts is not just best in class products, it’s an experience you will want to repeat year after year.  Whether you tweak what has proven popular or want to send something new every year, then our mission has been and will continue to be to make the best Mother’s Day Hampers.

Answering Common Questions About Mother's Day Gifts with BasketsGalore

It’s sometime between 2024 and 2026, you’re seeking the perfect gift to celebrate the special women in our lives. The AI is spitting out literally millions of suggestion for you to spend your money on.   Why should you select a product created by a little family producer based in a remote outpost of the European Union.  Let’s look at some common questions about Basketsgalore Mother's Day gifts and how our gift hampers are the perfect choice:

What to get mum for Mother's Day?

Keep it simple and play the percentages.  If we ignore the intangible or service-based gifts, then we’re looking at a choice really between Flowers, Gift Sets and Hampers.  Subscriptions can be pretty popular, but the introduction of administration and signing up to a subscription not to your own address can be problematic.  As a one-off purchase it is really hard to look beyond one of the big three.  The difficulty arrives when it comes to choosing where to buy.

What to put in a Mother's Day hamper?

Our Mother's Day hampers are much more than “thoughtfully curated to include a mix of gourmet delicacies, indulgent treats, and luxurious pampering products.” Each hamper is built on a platform which is unique to Mother’s Day and Gifts that you would associate with sending on that particular day.  Since they are Hampers, the dominant elements are fancy foods, but we go far beyond the traditional artisanal chocolates and beverages to scatter in a few fancy novelties such as scented candles and bath salts.   These hampers are extra special, they stand out from the customary offerings because quite simply so much more attention has been paid to the detail of their design and so much care and attention is dedicated to their safe arrival at your Mother’s home.

What is the best gift for Mother's Day?

The best Mother's Day gift is one that comes from the heart and reflects your mum's unique personality and interests. However, it’s difficult as each year passes by to think of something different or imaginative.  It’s not every year there is something that she especially wants.  Maybe you have a couple of siblings, and you group together to purchase her something she really needs. For the years when imagination, beauty and practicality are the order of the day, there’s Basketsgalore.

What should I get for Mother's Day?

When choosing a Mother's Day gift, consider what will make your mum excited and curious. Make it imaginative, make it personal, make it fancy and select a budget which reflects your financial ability.  Our most popular Mother’s Day gifts are in the £50-£65 bracket, but you can spend up to ten times that amount as we have done in the past for Hollywood Film stars, footballers, and senior professionals.  It just depends on your financial resources.

What can I buy my mum for Mother's Day?

Anything at all which makes her happy, but year on year you will want to mix things up. Don’t always send flowers.  Indeed don’t always use Basketsgalore.  Yes we launch at least 9 new Mother’s Day Gift designs every single year, but there are plenty of other small companies just like us who would love to serve your requirements.  We have more options to choose from, and we’ve been around so long that our designs have a bit more zing and pzzazz, but we’re not the only show in town.

Quality and Freshness Guaranteed: We control our own warehouse. We are probably a little guilty of micromanaging the flow of goods, but that’s because we want no spoilage and to maximise the quality and freshness part of the business.  Cakes arrive weekly with much shorter shelf lives of that what is customary in the industry.  Biscuits are make using local Oats, small producers are innovative with work patterns and excited to see their product reaching a wider market.  Every basket or hamper is cross referenced twice against its original message.  We want to be completely certain that the spirit of the message is upheld in content and appearance.  Then we want to make sure that what arrives exceeds expectations with its fine attention to detail.
