Whether you live close to mom or far away, it's important to honor her on this special day. See what I did there? Moms loved to be pampered on Mother's Day so if you have the time, put together a lovely basket for her to enjoy!

An Adorable Bag

Available at Etsy

Start with an adorable (and functional) basket to put everything in. I like these market totes but you can also choose a monogrammed shoulder tote. Etsy has tons of cute ideas.

Bottle of Local Wine

Available at Ruby Moon Vineyards

I love trying out new wines - especially when they come from local vineyards. If you live in the Evansville area, grab a bottle of Ruby Moon wine from Anita and Jamie in Henderson, KY. Or grab mom and take her on a tour and wine tasting with these lovely ladies!

I'm a mom that can't get enough of my child so every available inch of space in my home is loaded up with a framed photo. Check out these affordable options for mom. Just upload, order and pick up!

Coffee Sample

Available at The Donut Bank

Confession time - I have a bag of Donut Bank coffee at my desk and when I need a pick-me-up, I sniff it. Weird, I know. Your mom will probably just enjoy making the coffee and drinking it.

Fresh Fruit

Available at The Fresh Market

With such bleak weather, we need to avoid scurvy by eating some fresh fruits and I say the more tropical, the better. Go with the fresh pineapples, mangoes, bananas and kiwis Aldi offers. This is great basket filler and the colors will make it pop!

Kerrygold

Imported Cheese

Available at Aldi

This Dubliner Irish Stout cheese looks like a fun choice for a basket. Look for a tangy goat cheese, fruit infused Havarti or a beer-laden import. Anything beyond the same old cheddar!

Yes, it's time to splurge a little on the woman who gave you life, raised you or has given up her own son to you.
