Mother’s Day: 5 Spa Gift Basket Ideas to Show Mom You Care

Saffron Marigold - Updated: April 8, 2024

Give Mom one of these five spa gift baskets for Mother’s Day or for any occasion where you want to shower Mom with love. If you’re wondering what to put in a spa gift basket, start by building a theme around one of our handcrafted collections.

Each one of our patterns is designed to take you on a journey to a place real or imagined. With that in mind, consider where you Mom might want to go to escape from the small stresses of everyday life. Is she drawn to the ocean, or does she yearn for faraway locales? Maybe Mom craves serenity in the form of simplicity–either in color or style–or perhaps she prefers the fresh air of the countryside. You know her best, so design your spa gift baskets with her in mind!

What to include in a DIY spa gift basket?

Of course, a spa gift basket doesn’t actually have to be a basket, of course. Your Mom (or other lucky lady) will be thrilled to receive beautiful spa gifts, too! A pretty decorative tin can work, too. However, if you can find a wicker, rattan, or wire basket large enough to hold a few of Mom’s towels or favorite magazines, go for it–these can serve as bathroom decor long after Mother’s Day is over.

If you want to give mom something she can get more use out of instead of a gift basket, present her with a set of toiletry makeup bags filled with the at-home spa bath amenities you’ve gathered. This way, she can store leftover bath salts, scrubs, and lotions in beautiful, block-printed bags that remind her of you.

Shop Makeup Bags

Luxury amenities like these triple-milled shea butter soaps make an essential part of a spa gift basket. Also consider bubble baths, bath salts, sugar scrubs, face masks, and cleansers in Mom’s favorite scents.

We also like the idea of giving Mom a mini bathroom makeover as part of our DIY spa gift baskets. After all, it won’t feel much like she’s getting away from it all when she steps into the same old everyday space! A mini spa bathroom makeover doesn’t need to be super-involved (read: no painting necessary). Hanging a pretty new shower curtain and coordinating window curtains freshens up a bathroom in an instant. 

Shop Shower Curtains

A few Saffron Marigold goodies mixed in with a few choice accessories will help create a spa-inspired bathroom that Mom can escape into whenever she pleases. Of course, you’ll want to include a candle whose fragrance induces relaxation. Round out an at-home spa kit by tucking in a new pair of slippers, her favorite lotion, or even a Saffron Marigold gift card. True indulgence!

Spa gift baskets fit for queens

Make Mom feel like the queen you know she is by creating a home spa experience inspired by our Royal Mansour collection. We’re taking pristine white linens to a whole new level of chic, luxe, spa-inspired beauty in this gift basket!
