A gift basket always makes for the perfect present because it includes lots of smaller goodies that often last longer than one big gift. So we're sharing our Mother's Day basket ideas that will help kick-start your search in all the right ways. These aren't the gift baskets you're probably thinking of, though. Scroll on for elegant styles including giant wicker options with huge handles covered in a glossy layer of cellophane and finished off with an aggressively large ribbon. No, these ones are as stylish as their contents are useful, delicious, or relaxing. All you have to do is pick a theme you know she’ll love and have it sent to her pre-packaged to perfection. We’ve picked out a few—21, to be specific—that we think will satisfy every mom’s cravings. Whether she’s into chocolate, wine, or spa days, we've got you covered.

You see, when it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, it’s all about the thought and effort you put into it, so consider what she likes and go from there. If you need a little inspiration, keep scrolling because we've rounded up an array of options. From a wicker basket filled with a selection of cheeses made on a family-owned dairy farm to a spa-themed basket designed to lull her to sleep with lavender-based products, there are plenty of solid picks on our list.

The only thing left to do is "add to cart" and place your order. Of course, don’t forget the card—which is arguably the most important part of any gift. May will be here sooner than you think, so click through and shop.

Nothing challenges our creativity like putting together a charcuterie board that's as delicious as it is aesthetically pleasing, which is why we think this pre-assembled board makes for the perfect Mother's Day gift. It includes 15 hand-selected artisan cheeses, meats, dried fruits, nuts, chocolates, and olives. Plus, there's a box of rosemary and olive oil crackers. The best part? It's all packed into an acacia wood serving crate that you can actually use again. Don't worry; it's shipped chilled.

Anyone who lives in the same city as a Milk Bar can appreciate the level of delicacy that's packed into these almost too-good cookies. For those who don't, give them the gift of what we'd call the perfect dessert. No matter which flavor you try— B'day truffles, chocolate B'day truffle, the famous compost cookie, cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookies, chocolate confetti cookie, the regular confetti cookie, or the corn cookie—you're in for a literal treat. Did we mention there's even a slice of Milk Bar pie in here?
