Women who love to garden will be highly pleased with a basket that contains seeds, a pair of gardening gloves, and a set of markers for their various plants.

Virtually all bookworms will be pleased with a basket containing two or three new books by their favorite writers.

For an extra special touch, one can also include a gift card to a local bookshop so that Mom can select some new reading material whenever she chooses.

A vast array of possibilities exist for those whose moms enjoy arts and crafts. One can find everything he or she needs to create an interesting basket at a local craft store.
