Happy Friday! If you are coming over from my friend Joan, 2 Ladies & A Chair, welcome! Isn’t Joan’s style just a breath of fresh air! She lives on the Monterey coast and every time I visit her blog I daydream about living there along the beautiful coast!
Mother’s Day Gift Basket
Well, Mother’s Day is right around the corner and you know what they say, women are the hardest to shop for! So, I thought what better gift than to give the gift of a morning off! I have the perfect Breakfast in Bed Gift Basket complete with a recipe for the most amazing Homemade Protein Granola!
I don’t know a mom that wouldn’t love breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day. And I have rounded up some of my favorite products that would be the best gift for the mom in your life. The perfect sampling of all things that will give her a little pampering on the day dedicated to her!
And this gift basket doesn’t have to be limited to just Mother’s Day. This gift would make a wonderful treat for a friend’s birthday or as a get well soon offering.
A Basket Filled with Morning Essentials
Every gift basket should have a cohesive theme. And for this Breakfast In Bed theme, I wanted to include all the items necessary for a relaxing morning off. A beautiful robe, some light reading, a gorgeous scented candle and a great face mask are the perfect foundation for some pampering.
And it helps if the items are drool worthy too, right? I’m loving this initial mug with watercolor floral letters. Just beautiful! And you have to see the inside of this book filled with beautiful pictures of mouth watering entertaining platters!
Of course this basket includes my absolute favorite candle. This rose candle from Diptyque smells just like fresh garden roses! I can’t get enough! And the kimono robe is so gorgeous I bought an extra one for myself. It is made of the lightest cotton – perfect for the warmer temps!
Now don’t forget to grab the recipe for the Homemade Protein Granola at the bottom of this post too! It is one of my favorites!
One of my favorite ways to present a gift is by offering it in the form of a gift basket. By skipping the wrapping paper and enclosing the items in a unique basket or crate it really personalizes the gift. So, I chose this pretty rose gold basket.
And I added a simple hand tied bouquet of garden flowers. Rustic and chic but casual. Perfect for the occasion!
