A Mother’s Day Gift Idea

Note: This post may contain affiliate links. Thanks for supporting COOKtheSTORY!

Today I have a special treat to share with you. It’s a giveaway for a Mom’s Baking for Friends Basket full of yummy treats and a cookbook from Tate’s Bakeshop. Isn’t that basket the best Mother’s Day gift idea ever?


My mom, me and little baby M. So happy together. How do you say thank you to your Mom? Here is a gift idea for Mothers Day: a Giveaway from Tate's Bake Shop

Look how happy my mom was on that day. Her daughter had recently had a daughter. All three of us were enjoying some sweet time together.

There aren’t many days as special as this. When they happen we have to hold onto them, capture them and be grateful for them.

I know that I am not always the grateful daughter I should be. It’s so easy to get caught up with all my responsibilities and forget to slow down, appreciate what’s around me and say thank you to those I love just for being there.

Once a year there is a special day when I do remember to be grateful:

Mother’s Day. The day we say thank you to our moms.

Mother’s Day will be here before we know it. It’s time to start thinking about what we will do to make mom’s day a beautiful one.

No matter what special plans you have, there’s always the possibility for a little something extra. That’s why I’ve teamed up with Tate’s Bake Shop to offer you an extra Mother’s Day Gift. It’s the Mom’s Baking for Friends Basket full of yummy treats and a cookbook too.

Giveaway: Mom's Baking FGiveaway: Mom's Baking For Friends Gift Basket, a perfect Mother's Day gift idea. or Friends Gift Basket, a perfect gift idea for Mother's Day.

You could keep it for yourself but I think it makes an even better Mother’s Day gift idea. The contest will be over in time to have it delivered straight to your mom’s door.

    For my Mom on Mother’s Day, As I am far from home and not able to visit home due to busy schedule.My plan is to present with her flowers in the morning, which is a tradition, along with her card and gifts ordering through online florist.

    I’m not totally sure what I will be doing for mom on Mother’s Day yet. I do know that I also need to do something extra special for my MIL though. She has been the most amazing help to me lately.

    For my Mom on Mother’s Day, my plan is to present with her flowers in the morning, which is a tradition, along with her card and gifts and make her breakfast. The plan for the rest of the day is up to her. The picture of your mom, your daughter and you is beautiful!!

      Kim, Thank you so much. That is one of my favorite pictures ever. The plan you have for Mother’s Day sounds fabulous. If you’re looking for breakfast recipe ideas, I’m going to be having a BrunchWeek on my blog with 30 other bloggers (on their blogs) all sharing brunch recipes leading up to Mother’s Day (May 5-11). It’s going to be delicious. And there are amazing (AMAZING!) prizes for our readers too. I hope you can come check it out.
