From Your Heart To Hers: Building A Meaningful Mother's Day Gift Box

What comes to mind when you think of your mom? 

Is it her warm hugs, her unwavering support, or the way she always knows exactly what to say to make you feel better when you’re struggling? 

For many of us, our mothers are more than parents

They’re our friends, mentors, and confidants who make us feel safe and loved. The pillars of our lives, always there to offer guidance and strength. 

Therefore, Mother's Day is the perfect occasion to express your gratitude and create a gift that truly speaks to her heart

What better way to do that than by presenting a box that will reflect how much she means to you and make her feel cherished

Whether you select a ready-to-ship gift box or opt to build your own, including thoughtful items that will resonate with your mom and capture her personality will make all the difference. 

To help you create a thoughtful and personalized gift box that your mom is sure to treasure, we'll guide you through:

  • Maximizing your Mother's Day gift box budget for a memorable present
  • Crafting a theme to transform the gift into an experience
  • Putting your own spin on the gift box
  • Choosing environmentally conscious options

Fun Fact: The modern Mother's Day was first celebrated on May 12 1907 when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. In 1914 U.S. President Woodrow Wilson made it a national holiday. It’s celebrated yearly on the second Sunday of May.

Setting a Budget

It’s important to set a budget when planning your special Mother's Day gift. Whether you're a last-minute shopper or an early bird, budgeting strategies can help you get the most out of your gift box.

Look out for gifts on sale or special discounts that can give you that extra special touch. You can also be creative and incorporate thoughtful details–such as adding a personalized greeting card–that won't break the bank.

With Giften Market, you’ll find all kinds of creative ideas for gifts your mom will love. From spa day products and cozy socks to artisanal tea, coffee, and snacks, there's something for every mother.

Get creative when budgeting and don't be afraid to mix and match items with different prices. You can even add a few extra items, e.g., one-of-a-kind jewelry to give your gift a unique element.

By setting a budget, and with the right mix of meaningful gifts and personalized touches, you can make Mother's Day truly special and show your mom just how much you appreciate her.

Choosing a Theme

There are a lot of options when choosing a theme for your mom’s gift box. 

You can choose specific colors, create stories, tweak items, pick flavors, and design labels that reflect her style and personality. 

To personalize your gift box, think about what your mom loves and use that as the basis for your theme. With this inspiration, you can start exploring different themes, such as:

Sips and Treats
