DIY Basket of Blessings

Still want to bless an unsaved mom or neighbor with a small basket this year for Mother’s Day? It’s easy to craft your own do-it-yourself gift of goodies! Just fill a basket, bag, or other cute container with a few items meant to bless. Good rule of thumb? Items you yourself would enjoy being given!

Here are some suggestions to get you started:

  • Lotion, small candle, chocolate or a few candies, plant/flower
  • Assemble your gift with some fun tissue paper or ribbon
  • Add a card & express your heart for this mom (short is fine!). You could remind her that God sees moms and see their investment into their families.
  • Consider tucking in a compassionate gospel reminder, like a tract or small Bible. (“Promises for Mothers (ESV)” is a fantastic list of Bible promises specifically for moms, search and buy at this link at
