Sweet Hampers for Mother’s Day
Mums come in all shapes and sizes. Most of us think only of our birth mothers when we celebrate Mother’s Day. But grannies and aunties, foster mothers and super-close family friends can all claim the title in at least an honorary capacity. Even dads can take that role, if there’s no one else to fill it – and it doesn’t matter that they have a day of their own to be celebrated. With March 22nd rapidly approaching, it’s time to think about saying ‘thank you’ to whoever loved, cared for, protected and mothered you as a child.
There are so many different ways of celebrating Mother’s Day. But if you’re looking for a gift that will make your mum smile, we think that a specially selected sweet hamper is a great place to start.
3 Sweet Hamper Ideas for Mother’s Day
The Small Gesture
Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be about blown budgets. It doesn’t have to be about enormous expense or fabulous experiences. At its heart, it’s about showing that you care. And you can do that as well with a hand-picked posy from your garden as you can with afternoon tea at the Cliveden. But if you’ve a little one looking to buy a pocket money present for their mummy, or you want to send a smile from afar then a Personalised Letterbox-friendly Sweet Hamper (299g) is a lovely option. In these days of email and digital tech, there’s nothing quite like receiving an unexpected parcel through the post. And our mini letterbox sweet hampers will make any sweet-toothed mum smile. These are also great if you want to send a little something to your nan or aunty too.
The Bigger Gesture
Swizzels produce a whole range of sweets hampers. They come in beautiful baskets and attractive red boxes. And they’re available for practically every budget. But the pièce de résistance has to be our Personalised Retro Wicker Sweet Hamper (1.75kg). Packed to bursting point with the complete range of Swizzels goodies – from Double Dips to Squashies – this is the ultimate gift for the sweet lover in your life. If your mum is a fan of sweets, this is a gift that she’ll both love and laugh at. And it should keep her satisfied for quite some time to come! And when she’s done, the basket can be used for other things to remind her of your gift – they’re great for holding craft supplies, among other things!
The Personalised Gesture
Everyone has their likes and their dislikes and their loves. If you are shopping for a Mother’s Day gift for someone with very definite tastes, Swizzels Build a Hamper service could provide the answer. Select from a wicker hamper or a box. Then cram it with all the sweet treats your mum can handle. Mix and match. Choose the veggie and vegan options only (we also have pre-prepared veggie sweet hampers available), or go all-in and fill it completely with her favourite sweeties… A whole hamper of Parma Violets anyone? How many Refreshers could you fit into one of those baskets?!
It’s easy to overlook Mother’s Day. Mums forgive. That’s kind of their job. And also part of what makes them special. But that’s also why you should really try not to. Whoever you consider to be your mum, whether she gave birth to you, adopted you, or cared for you when you needed her – or him – she’s done a lot for you in your lifetime. And while she’s unlikely to expect anything in return, it’s still nice to say, ‘thank you’ from time to time. And we’d love to help you do it with one of our delicious sweet hampers.
