DIY Gift Basket for Mom

DIY Gift Basket for Mom

You’ve still got time to make a DIY gift basket for mom. I put this one together on my latest shopping trip to Marshalls. For just about $40, I was able to create a thoughtful, sweet gift for my mom.

How to Make Your DIY Gift Basket for Mom

I started in the housewares department. I’m sure you all know Marshalls is so much more than just clothing and shoes, they have amazing deals on home goods. I always get inspired…and start with a cart to load up my goodies.

 

My mom is re-doing her powder room so I knew I wanted to get her some goodies to make the room look finished. I began with the sweet Family Rules artwork. I’ve seen similar art before, but not for under $10!

Then I found a basket to work with, I always like little baskets in bathroom to hold either paper towels or cloth towels. This dark brown one will have many uses and is a perfect item to gather all my gifts.

Once you’ve got your basket, it’s time to fill it. I found a great set of bee handtowels in a neutral color with gold accents.

Then I added a scented a pretty lotion or soap dispenser from Cyntia Rowley and a pretty candle from Scentsational.  My mom is from Maryland so when I saw the crab on front, I knew she had to have this particular one.

Having all the inspiration for a great gift in one spot sure makes my life easier. Marhsalls has it all from the basket and art work to the final touches.

From there, I just need to tuck in a card. I got this lovely printable card from Kayla Aimee’s blog. She has lots of inspiring work, this card is just the lovely thing to finish off the gift.
