World travelers know how much people expect of us around Mother's Day, asking us to point to fun finds from faraway places. But for your Mom (or for yourself, if you're a Mom), you or your loved ones don't have to travel far to find the right, delicious choices.
In fact, have you seen the great gifts for Moms on GourmetGiftBaskets.com? You can find decadent cheesecakes, chocolate-dipped fruits, and all kinds of themed baskets, towers, tins and gift suitcases. Here are some standouts I spied:
The Coffee and Chocolates Gift Basket Deluxe should wow many a Mom. In fact, if my kids are reading this, I wouldn't mind seeing one of these on Mother's Day or any day afterward. This basket marries the most blissful treats, like slow-melting truffles and bars of decadently rich Belgian chocolate with an assortment of robust gourmet coffees.
It includes chocolate-dipped chocolate and mint cookies, chocolate espresso beans, espresso cookie brittle, milk chocolate orange sticks, caramel demitasse swizzle sticks, dark chocolate dipped cookies, peanut butter chocolate squares, chocolate chunk shortbread, and more. Even the most sophisticated mother would savor this gift. It's available now for $129.99 at GourmetGiftBaskets.com.
Now if your budget is a little tight this Mother's Day, the President's Choice Cheesecake Sampler with eight different slices of cheesecake is almost a sure bet. At just $54.99, it offers a flavor for almost anyone, with slices of New York cheesecake, Strawberry Swirl, Turtle, Amaretto, Cherry Almond, Triple Chocolate, Cookies & Cream and Chocolate Raspberry.
Many other gifts including the English Watering Can Garden Gift Basket ($49.99) and the Mother's Day Evening of Indulgence Gift Basket ($69.99) can be found at GourmetGiftBaskets.com. Check them out when you have a chance.
