A day in the life of Mom looks like laughter, laundry, and strong coffee, because no matter how rewarding and fulfilling motherhood is, it's hard work! Being a mom is not for the fainthearted. And if you’re doing the shopping in your house, chances are, you might just be a mother, too. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best Mother’s Day gift ideas—To do just a little bit of the hard work for you.
Although the version of Mother’s Day that we know in America became a federal holiday in 1914, celebrations commemorating mothers date back to at least ancient Greek and Roman times. The closest precedent we have to the modern holiday is the early Christian holiday known as “mothering day,” when devotees would return to their “mother church” for a special service once a year. Over the centuries, this holiday became more and more secularized and began to involve children bringing their mothers flowers or other tokens of appreciation. You might even argue that Mother’s Day is a feminist holiday, as Anna Jarvis began organizing celebrations in 1908 specifically to honor the sacrifices moms make for their children. This Mother’s Day, let’s show all the moms in our life how much we appreciate their hard work and loving devotion with a gourmet gift basket curated just for her — the perfect mom gift!
In classic mom-style, we put a lot of thought into considering all the things mom loves, and got to work compiling a gift guide filled with everything from chocolate samplers to spa gift boxes. Bringing ideas for all the moms on your list, from new moms to those more experienced (including grandmothers!), find the best Mother’s Day gift baskets and tick another task off your to-do list today.
