Easter is over and it’s time to think about Mother’s Day! So today, I’m sharing how to make a Mother’s Day Garden Gift Basket that any mom would love AND on a budget!
In case you haven’t noticed, I LOVE shopping at the 99 Cents Only Stores. I know I will always find great products (name brands too), home goods, and fresh food for my family at phenomenal prices. And this year, it’s been especially important for me to be extra frugal because my oldest daughter is graduating from high school and I’ve been dealing with the high cost of her senior year expenses. This month, we’re prepping for her senior prom. We’ve been shopping for her dress, shoes, accessories, and making hair/makeup appointments…can we say cha-ching! So shopping at the 99 Cents Stores for budget-friendly items and gifts has been necessary and tremendously helpful for my budget.
Of course, with Mother’s Day just around the corner, I headed to my local 99 Cents Only store to see if I could put together a gift worthy of any mom. And guess what?! I found more than enough gift items to create a fabulous gift basket for mom! I found items to create a tea basket, a spa & beauty basket, a craft basket, and more. But ultimately, the wide assortment of garden items won me over and I decided to create a Mother’s Day Garden Gift Basket. And the best part, it only cost about $25!

Mother’s Day Garden Gift Basket
How to make and assemble:
To create the Mother’s Day Garden Gift Basket, use a large pot for the ‘basket’ and arrange all of the items into it.
Options: If adding more soil bags or using smaller pots, place the soil bags under the pots as a base.
Take one roll of cellophane wrap and cut enough to reach up to the top of basket items, plus 8-10 inches. Take the second roll of cellophane wrap and cut to the same size as the first cellophane wrap. Overlap the cellophane pieces lengthwise by 2″ – 3″. Tape the pieces together only in the center where the pot will be placed.
Cut a 12″ piece of ribbon and set aside within reach. Place the pot over the taped area and carefully begin to gather the wrap over the items. If there are areas where the cellophane is a little short, simply tuck them in between the rest of the cellophane. When all the cellophane is gathered around the pot, tightly tie the ribbon around the top. Next, grab the loose cellophane at the top and cut straight across, making sure to leave at least 8″ of cellophane at the top.
Tip: If the leftover cut cellophane is wide enough, save it to make Candy Leis.
Cut 5 – 18″ length ribbon strands. Tie the strands around the top of the cellophane and curl.
Top with the hat and this Mother’s Day Garden Gift Basket is ready to be gifted!
