DIY Pampering Mother’s Day Gift Basket Filler Ideas for DIY gift baskets.
Spring is my favorite time of year. I love the warmer weather, gorgeous flowers, and the fact that Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14th! It is just an all around fun time of year that prepares me for the summer fun that is right around the corner. Today I am sharing some DIY Mother’s Day gift Basket Filler Ideas just in case you were thinking about making one for your mom(s).
Gift Baskets are one of my all time favorite things to receive. There is just so much joy when it comes to opening one up and discovering all the carefully curated goodies in it. We all know what our moms love, so picking up cheap beauty finds at places like CVS is a great place to start.
Right now, CVS is having some killer deals on Dove, Caress, Simple, and St. Ives products. Not only are these some of my favorite beauty brands, but they just so happen to be my mom’s too. I grew up watching her apply St. Ives lotion to her body and Dove was the soap we used religiously. My grandmother was a Caress Daily Silk kind of woman and used it for years!
Dove Go Fresh Rejuvenate Body Wash, Caress Daily Silk Body Wash, and St. Ives Apricot Oil Scrub are all on sale starting now!
If I were you, I would check my coupon inserts, and head to CVS to get some stellar deals on these beauty brands.
As you can see, AXE You Body Wash and Dove Men + Care Minerals + Sage Body Wash are also part of these deals. I bought a few products to get a head start on my Father’s Day gift basket for Jared.
My gift basket also included a candle, ear buds for my mom’s gym time, note cards because she leaves a lot of notes at work, a lightweight fashion scarf, Simple wipes to remove her makeup, and lots of beauty products from CVS.
Here are some other DIY Mother’s Day Gift Basket Filler ideas:
- gardening gloves
- nail polish
- nail grooming kit
- tickets to a show
- word puzzles
- hair brushes
- shower poofs
- candle warmers
- hand lotion
- gift cards
- sentimental gifts from kids
- dinner or lunch date coupon
- wallet/coin purse
- note cards
I know there are literally so many gift basket filler ideas, but my theme is basically a spring pampering Mother’s Day gift basket. You could do a gardening one, foodie one, sewing one-the possibilities are endless!
We also have a MEGA fun giveaway for you all! Enter below to win a $50 CVS gift card to get you on your way to being pampered this spring!
Visit CVS.com/BeautyBeginsHere and while you are there, take the quiz to see which face care products you would like to try.
]]]]]know that CVS has become the drugstore that has everything so I know that you can make a great gift basket there. I hope my husband reads this to get his ideas about what a mom loves because he is usually bad at this.
I’m going to try the St. Ives Apricot oil scrub it just sounds refreshing! Your basket looks so inviting it’s hard to pick my faves so I’ll just take em all:)
The first thing that caught my eye is the ST IVES oil scrub! I love scrubs and think they are a must have. Especially after a long day, and I think it’s neat it has oil in it! There’s so many uses now for oils! St Ives has always been a great skincare brand too! I’ll be picking this up asap! (@missmazariegos)
Amy Stonger says
I.know I’ll need bug spray, sunscreen and aloe.
These are all nice products, and I love putting together gift baskets. The basket should have Dove Nutritive Solutions Daily Moisture Shampoo, Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash and Caress Body Wash, and also St. Ives Facial Oil Scrub in Coconut!!! oh wow, better make two baskets, as I want one for me!
