YALL! I am so excited about this post! I teamed up with some of my favorite brands to put together a box of goodies for some of my best girlfriends who are total #momgoals and could use a little happy mail! Being a working mom is no easy task but these ladies do it with grace every single day so I wanted to show my appreciation to them and bring a smile to their sweet faces!
I absolutely LOVE putting together themed gift baskets for my friends. Whether it’s a color theme or a seasonal theme, there is a gift basket for EVERYONE! I also have a whole pinterest board of inspiration so make sure to follow along here!
So for this Mother’s Day happy mail, I wanted to do something a little different! When I think “Mother’s Day” I tend to think of a pampering/spa day type basket but I wanted to put together a summer box instead! So for this basket I used the colors blue, turquoise, and pink for a cohesive look!
I made sure to include my FAVORITE SPF 50 sunscreen from Coola because it’s over 70% organic, super lightweight, and water resistant which makes it perfect for the beach or pool!
I also included some of my favorite makeup brushes and sponges from Eco Tools because they are AMAZING quality products and you won’t believe how inexpensive they are!! When I find a product like this I just HAVE to share it with my mama friends!
What is mothers day without a cute journal or planner?? I love including a gift that will help my fellow mamas reach their goals so I included a Thoughtful Journal from Blue Sky in the box! These journals are full of self-discovery and goal-setting pages to help you make this your best year yet!
I also wanted to include a cute DIY item which I always ALWAYS suggest when making a gift basket! I think adding something unique that can’t be purchased in stores is extra special and shows your friends how much you truly care for them! My friend at BeachMamaVinyls helped me create these cute Mama Lama vinyl stickers that I put on white stainless steel wine tumblers that I found on Amazon for an AMAZING deal! I actually purchased tumblers from a different site and they were going to take WAY too long to arrive so I canceled that order and got these on Prime! (if that doesn’t scream MOM I don’t know what does!)
Next I wanted to add something for my mama’s to pamper themselves with, so I added these fun face masks that I found at Target! I loved that they came in a few different colors so I could be sure to get one that fit my theme!
I also included a single serving of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE collagen peptides! As mothers, we put a lot of focus on taking care of other people so I wanted my girls to be able to take care of themselves! Adding collagen peptides to your diet is great for you skin, hair, nails, joints, and gut!!
To round out my gift basket, I just threw in a fun single serve pink lemonade which is a great inexpensive option that not only sticks to my summer theme, but helps pull in the pink tones of my gift basket!
To pack it all up, I just purchased some white shipping boxes on Amazon, cute tissue paper, and some crinkle cut filler paper in colors that matched my theme!
No gift is complete without a hand written note. I found these adorable cards at Target but you can get them anywhere as long as they fit your color scheme! These aren’t “mother’s day” themed because it was way more inexpensive to get a pack of blank occasion cards and BONUS, it was easier to find some that matched the colors of my theme!
I hope this inspires you to send a themed gift basket to your friends to let them know how much you love them! If you do, make sure to post a picture on social media and tag me so I can see!
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
