Special occasions such as Mother’s Day don’t need to be expensive. For Mothers Day this year i made my Mum and my Mother In Law a hamper gift basket. It didn’t cost the earth putting it all together and looked like a really lovely and expensive gift.
I can be quite creative at times and id seen on some YouTube videos that people were making gift basket hampers for their Mums and I thought I’d do the same.
The actual basket, tissue paper, paper shred, cellophane and gift bow were purchased from Poundland at the cost of £2.50 for each basket I made.
I purchased mother’s day cards from us and Nanny cards from my children from Poundland at the cost of £2 per basket.
In Card Factory I purchased a pink rose and a Nan keyring at the cost of £1.88 per basket.
I purchased a glass vase with a pink flower in it and a box of Malteasers from Poundland at the cost of £2 per basket.
I purchased a “Mum” cup, a fabric flower and a “Mum” wooden plaque/sign from Asda at £3 per basket.
I purchased 3 hand and body lotions and a hand cream from Superdrug at the price of £4.25 per basket.
That was everything that I put in the Mother’s Day gift baskets. I think they looked lovely and both my Mum and my Mother In Law really liked them.
So in total it cost me only £15.63 per basket. That’s not much money for something that looked really nice put together and something that looked more expensive than it was.
I’ll probably start doing gift baskets as presents for special occasions.
I did do a video of what the basket looked like when all put together and what things were put in the baskets over on my YouTube channel. You can watch that video below.
I hope that this post and video may of given you some inspiration.
You don’t have to spend lots for something to look really nice and the person being really appreciative of it.
Thank you for reading this and watching my video.
Until next time,
