If you’re looking for an easy Valentine’s Day gift for mom friends, look no further! 3 minutes to put together, looks like a dream, and will probably even make them cry with all the love they can feel radiating from the package… win/win/win!f
When you want to show a friend you care, you may not have much time if you’re also contending with juice spills, carpools, and forgotten lunches. But one really simple way to show you love someone is by showing up with chocolate and kind words.
After all, who needs chocolate and words of love more than a milk covered, sleep deprived mama?
Absolutely no one! And you my dear friend, are the perfect person to delivery those gifts. Why? Because who loves with their whole heart better than a mama? You can speak to their tired and weary soul in a real way that only another mama can truly express.
So grab a card, and fill it with every word of encouragement you know that sweet, tired mama needs to hear.
Be sure to do this task with some tissues close at hand, because if you’re anything like me you will probably cry a lot as you write all the things you want her to know – and realizing that they apply to you too <3
That sweet and amazing emotional task completed, it’s time to get some candy!
Valentine’s Day Gift Basket for Mama Friends
Before we can get on with the business of making all these amazing baskets for our mama friends, we need to grab supplies! Fortunately that part is easy because if you’re anything like me you’re at Walmart 27 times a week any way!
I grabbed these DOVE® Heart Tins and MARS Valentine’s Day CELEBRATIONS® Bottles (and some for myself too!) which were easy to spot in their seasonal treats section of the food department!
Also be sure to get a basket large enough to hold everything, some red and white crinkle paper, cellophane and ribbon (optional), and a card for each friend!
Pulling it all Together
Now that you have everything, you just need to assembly it, which is crazy easy!
1. Put the crinkle paper in the base of the basket. I ended up using about 2 good handfuls of each color per basket.
2. Place the goodies in the basket!
3. Optional: Wrap in cellophane and tie with a ribbon. For this basket I found that about 4 feet of cellophane worked perfectly to cover everything without leaving too much on top to flop all over the place!
The whole things takes less than 5 minutes (including writing the card!) and makes for an adorable Valentine’s Day gift for mom friends!
Now all that’s left to do is to put on your best cupid costume (just kidding) and delivery these beautiful baskets to all the lovely mamas in your life!
Even Easier Valentine’s Day Gift for Mom Friends!
If you’re super short on time, or just don’t feel like getting all sappy, you can give either of these gifts all on their own! They each have a great built in card that can be easily personalized!
And if you give the DOVE® Heart Tin it comes with built in words of encouragement! Check this out!
