Mothers day 2023 is coming up and it’s the perfect time to show your mum how much you care. Why not surprise her with a homemade hamper full of thoughtful gifts? With a little bit of creativity, you can create a unique hamper that your mum will love. Keep on reading for some homemade hampers for mum ideas.
I have been working with Very on this guide and I can honestly say that I have loved every minute of writing this! What a treat to be able to put together some gift hampers that I know mums will love - everything here is recommended by me and I love shopping with Very - their website is very easy to navigate, delivery is quick and they have such a huge selection of products at very reasonable prices.
This guide will provide you with some great ideas on what to include in your homemade hampers. From pampering products, delicious treats, and home items there are plenty of options to suit all budgets that will make your mum feel extra special this Mother's Day. So let’s get started and find the perfect gift for your mum this Mother’s Day!
What Makes a Perfect Gift to Surprise Your Mum This Mother's Day?
It sounds cheesy but really all us mother’s want is a little token of appreciation. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive (although if you can afford it that is nice too!). Genuinely a homemade card with a heartfelt message and a little box of inexpensive treats or homemade things is just perfect and shows that you care. Personally I love a hamper of goodies so I’m sharing today some homemade hampers for mum ideas you can put together for your mum (or mother figure) that she will no doubt love.
If your mum loves interiors and anything homely she will love a hamper full of goodies for the house. Here are some ideas of what you could include…
- A beautiful throw / blanket
- A cushion
- Art or a drawing for the wall
- A Yankee candle
- Essential oils
- An ornament
- Cosy socks
A throw or a blanket makes the perfect base for this gift hamper and you can cushion the other items inside it. The lovely thing about gifts for the home is that they are practical and your mum will think of you when she uses them.
Food or drink hamper
A food or drink hamper usually goes down really well and there are so many different types you could choose from, depending upon what your mum likes. Here are some ideas…
- Chocolate hamper
- Tea / coffee hamper
- Sweets hamper for a mum with a sweet tooth
- Cheese hamper
- Gin hamper
- Deli hamper
- Biscuit hamper
- Pastries hamper
Or make up a hamper out of a mixture of any of these. A hamper like this can suit any budget as you can make bits to include at home so it doesn’t have to be expensive. You can also buy ready made hampers like this vegan hamper if you are short on time – just pop it into a pretty wicker basket and you have a lovely gift.
Beauty products hamper
A hamper full of pampering beauty and make up products is always a great idea! You can fill it with little budget friendly items such as lip balm and face masks or fill it full of your mum's favourite products. Some ideas include...
- lip balm
- face masks
- bath salts
- bath bombs
- bubble bath
- handmade soap
- hair oil
- body cream
- sleep mask
- body brush
Cushion any delicate glass bottles in tissue paper and you have a really special gift.
If you have the budget to afford it why not really splash out and create a luxury hamper for your mum? Mum’s are notorious for not spending money on themselves so some expensive gifts that she would enjoy but would never treat herself to would really make her day. Some ideas are…
- A designer handbag
- A designer purse
- Luxury perfume
- A lovely scarf
- Gift cards or vouchers for a meal / spa day / beauty treatment
First Mother's Day Hamper
Giving a hamper to your wife / partner or even best friend on their first mother's day is the perfect way to let them know that they are appreciated and loved on this special occasion. A new mum always gets given gifts for the new baby but rarely any for herself so this is a great way to make her feel special too and a new mom gift basket makes such a thoughtful gift. You could include...
- caffeine free tea
- hand cream
- hand sanitiser spray
- sweet treats
- nail polish or voucher for a manicure
- a magazine
- an IOU voucher for a free night of babysitting
Wrap it all up in a pretty basket and you have made someone's first mother's day a really special day.
If you know your mum’s sense of style really well then why not put together a mother's day gift basket full of clothes and accessories that she would like. Again, this could be a budget activity as you could source lovely items from charity shops or Vinted. You can choose to put together a whole outfits or just bits and pieces that you think your mum would like.
In this hamper we have a long black cardigan, leather look leggings, earrings, a DKNY handbag, a jumper, a scarf and some fluffy socks.
Make your hamper stand out by personalising it just to your mum’s taste and if you can add a homemade item or two then even better.
