All mums deserve a medal. Or something to acknowledge their bravery under fire from the family unit. How about a Mother’s Day hamper from The Complete Basketcase? You could choose a Thanks Mum hamper with Rose hand and nail cream, Rose body butter, Snax with Attitude strawberries and cream, Snowy Mountains love chocolate cookie and Drolte chocolate pastilles, plus other great goodies.
Alternatively, what about Mum’s Retreat. Sound the bugle! Start with tea for one. A very cute teapot and cup, Charlie’s mini melting moments, Bath Bomb macaroons, Lindt Lindor strawberries and cream, Chocolate Grove dried whole raspberries in milk chocolate and more. Then there’s the Spoil Mum hamper. Take a look at those hot pink cable knit slippers, the scented soy candle, Rose body scrub, Café Adore rich buttery shortbread and other wonderful delights.
These are just some of the many gift baskets down at the Complete Basketcase that would make mum deliriously happy. So you blokes out there, ask the girls to organise a mum’s hamper. It will be the smartest decision you’ll ever make.
